Wow, I've had this phone for just over a month and am amazed by it. What a good choice. Bought in Malaysia and am extremely happy with this purchase.
Battery: easily lasts me the whole day, on heavy use, I get to about 20% by the end of the day. It has battery saving features which are also a charm.
Updates: I was pleasantly surprised that this phone gave me face recognition unlock after the first update. The recent update a week ago also added many new features.
Screen and display: excellent visibility in daylight, sharp and smooth graphics. I've noticed there being a bit of a lag on only 1 or 2 games but since I'm not a heavy gamer, it doesn't bother me.
Build quality: is amazing, surpasses the apple phones I've had. It's sturdy and the metal unibody feels premium. It's taken a few drops without much wear showing.
Processor and memory: it runs smooth and apps open and run smoothly. Fingerprint and face unlock is instantaneous with great detection. I'm very happy with the 64GB on board which is more than adequate as yet and the 4GB memory for running apps is also adequate. The OS has many memory management features and Huawei also provides apps and phone management options that work well and keep things smooth under the hood. Hopefully their security and privacy standards are high. I love the app lock feature.
Overall I'm impressed with the whole package for the value and feel that flagships are just plain overpriced.
If you're considering this phone, it's a definite buy.
I bought the BND-L21 in June 2018
Best phone so far i didnt expect much but it is value for money in every section got security patches update on time and oreo also i only want honor team to work on battery life because it have huge 3400 mah battery but its hardly stay for 1 day until 20% rest everything is superb and camera is good keep it up HONOR 👍

Nic, 18 Jul 2018Just really wondering why Saudi Arabia donÂ’t have OREO up to now. No announcement yet when OR... moreDude go to honor's site (https://www.hihonor.com/sa-en). You would see a blue color button with an envelop at the bottom right corner of the page. Fill in your name, email, what is the problem, and ur message. I also wasn't getting the update first then did all this and that day only i got an update :)
Pao, 18 Jul 2018I got my oreo update last July 6th here in Kuwait,Just really wondering why Saudi Arabia donÂ’t have OREO up to now. No announcement yet when OREO update for the whole Middle East will be released considering that 7x was lauched since Dec 2017 - so frusrating rrally!
ibtesam, 11 Jun 2018my honor 7x takes 3 hour and 45 minutes to fully charged the phone , i am using it's original ... moreIt is because 5v 1 amp charger, in India it has 5v 2amp charger, use another with 5v 2 amp instead
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2018Because I'm a low end phone user. It usually takes up to 3 hours. 3000mAh with 5V1A charger.It has 5v 2 amp charger available, takes around 1.30 hrs.Mn
Nic, 16 Jul 2018It's really frustrating that no OREO until now for Middle East. I got my oreo update last July 6th here in Kuwait,
chriswongez, 14 Jul 2018Nop it actually is update from nougat to oreo... ...for Malaysia variant BND_L21C (C636)Why I got none... Same model..
I bought this set in Mid June in Pakistan. Till now I am amused to say that it works excellent. I have already updated it to oreo. It works well. Battery backup is good. I saw few reviews saying that this set lacks gyro sensor, but it isn't. I received earpiece in it's pack as well as I heard that it doesn't have earpiece in it. Overall a good package in this price range.
