I take great care in the software side of the phone to maximize its usability. Almost every preinstalled app either uninstalled or disabled (if not uninstallable).
I use the Ignore Optimization setting to only allow apps I need to run in the background to run like WhatsApp. Also use the Phone Manager app to make sure apps are closed once you clear apps from the Recently Used Apps page - using the same app, I also disabled background data usage on apps that don't need it to squeeze out even more battery life.
This thing after 5 years still runs reliably well I can usually get 3-4-ish hours of video playback. It can last 12 hours typically if you're just using it as an instant messaging device with some light internet surfing. Best thing is the quick charge, if you can get a hold of a quick charge charger this thing charges real quick when you need some battery life pronto. Even if you can't, the default charger still charges at 1% per minute but when the battery is at 80% it charges 1/3rd the speed from 80 - 100. Personally, 80 is more than enough given how long the battery lasts with Honor's superb app killing prowess.
This thing is strong too, I have dropped it many times on tile floors/roads from a half a metre to a metre away from the ground and the screen does not break. I don't even have a screen protector or a case on because I trust it so much.
2021 and it's still going strong. The only reason I'd buy another phone is when WhatsApp uses up all 16GB of my storage space.
I still us this phone since september 2016
Battery changed 2019 spring. The same behavior had, went blank on 30-35% battery.
It supports QuickCharge 2.0 (9V/1.67A) and works well with wall charger or car charger.
A am dual sim active simultaneously. 4-5h screen on time. No use of fB, insta, snapshat.
I replaced Emui launcher with Nova for better look/utility like google launcher.
The phone still works well but having 3-4 banking apps and some social media realtime communication, plus the smartwatch app makes it lagging.
The usb otg is very handy when you wish to transfer data on USB stick/cardreader
With a flex pcb nanosim adapter i can use 2 sims and 128GB card (yes the second nanosim is external stitched on the back with double tape). This comes because 16Gb space is too small when you wish to do a lot of things with the phone.
Huawei/Honor has a bad habit of aggressive closing apps you need to be active (to increase the battery life), the worst impact being on Whatsapp which does not get notification (often) in backround. There is a workaround for this (flag the app as sound system).
I just ordered Huawei P30 Pro 256/8Gb. I hope this will be enough for other 4-5 years or even more.
I am using honer 7 but it doesn't have enough space for apps and videos,but in the settings it shows 4Gb ram and 54 Gb rom but it doesn't have space,and is in the settings is different from what the phone is
It is a good phone, however the charging system is the main user problem

luffy, 12 Jun 2020does pubg work on this deviceYes, Call Of Duty Mobile can so I'm guessing pubg will also.
Wish I could still buy this phone from Huawei. It is the perfect size for me
I have honor 7 ( PLK-L01 ) since march 2016 and it stil runs fine. The emui is truly great compared to other phones, even to huawei and lite versions of honor! The camera ui is one of a kind ( i captured a lighting with the graffiti light mode, while a friend of mine with xiaomi Mi9t doesn't have that option) . Ir blaster, expandable memory, dual flash and smart key altogether, are features that i have seen only on tcl plex. The only thing missing is the nfc, but i can live without it. Indeed i had the same with the battery -the phone powered off at 38% - but i replaced and now is fine. True, the divice heats up a lot when gaming, but its not a gaming phone i would say.
In conclusion it's a great all around and practical phone for daily use, with a great camera in this range (single camera, released 2015).
Very good phone, still runs fine for me and I like the emui customizations, very useful smart key for example, camera is good in most situations but not great, relative has s9+ which is a lot better, however the battery life on h7 is consistently impressive, 4-5 hours screen on time average, occasionally 6, the only problem is I only had a couple of updates and none since Android 6, so not well supported, but I try not to worry about security...
Honour user, 09 Feb 2020It was good, but my battery doesn't work anymore. It automatically shuts down at 60% battery, ... moreI have the same issue. Two workarounds to that. Unplug it and re-plug it. Alternatively, use a higher capacity charger and that works for me.
terry ganz, 19 Dec 2019Best phone i have ever ownedIt was good, but my battery doesn't work anymore. It automatically shuts down at 60% battery, it can have 1 1/2 hours of usage now and maybe 5 on standby, now i walk with an usb cable from my laptop in my bag to the phone in my jacket to use it. Would like an repair.
I had this phone for 2 years ago. It often gets heat up ðŸ”¥ and its battery drains so fast even with minimal app usage. Not a good experience...
I just got this phone. No regret So far. The only issue observed is no isUSBb on the go and it's sound is not really loud. It's performance is cool
Took this phone when it's launched and till now I have not had to think of buying new one . Very nice buy
Am using Honor 7 (3GB Ram/64GB rom) but I compared it with Samsung Galaxy S6 (3GB ram/30GB rom), I concluded that the Samsung Galaxy S6 is more first than the honor 7;
*On honor 7 when you open an app as WhatsApp it takes a long seconds to open but on Galaxy S6 it's different.
The honor 7 is good samart phone with many qualities such as the camera, battery an even the design but the ram does not work as 3GB it looks likes is 1GB, even when you download a file it's doesn't run first as Galax S6, my opinion it that they have to best. Thanks
