September seems to be a season for budget phones as brands are launching back to back budget offerings this month. One of the most prominent launches among this is the Honor 7S, which the Huawei sub-brand introduced in the market a couple of weeks ago. The Honor 7S was one of the most awaited phones in the Honor 7 series. With that being said, we have listed the top five features of the Honor 7S which make it a phone worth eyeing.
Although the Honor 7S doesn’t come with a screen which would be comparable to other phones in the market right now, it offers 73% screen-to-body ratio with a design which is appealing to the crowd. The phone sports an IPS LCD panel which measures 5.45-inch and renders 720 x 1440 HD+ resolution with a 2.5D curved glass layer encasing it.
Eye Strain Protection
Honor 7S comes with a blue light reduction feature which cuts the blue light on the screen to reduce eye strain on the users’ eyes. For someone who likes to read ebooks on their phone, it will be a nice feature to make sure that you don’t hurt your eyes. Users can also use it when they use their phone at night in the dark.
Since the Honor 7S debuts as an entry-level smartphone with a very light price tag, it does not come with a fingerprint sensor. However, the company has gone as far ahead to equip it with a smart face unlock which is enabled by the front camera on the device.
Front LED Flash
The Honor 7S sports a selfie flash for clicking decent quality selfies even in low light situations. The front camera on the device is a 5MP shooter while the rear camera is a 13MP unit which comes with PDAF and LED flash.
Despite being an entry-level smartphone, the Honor 7S comes with Dual 4G support meaning that you won’t have to be dependent on a single SIM to experience good browsing speed and VoLTE calls, users will be able to use 4G SIM cards at the same time on the Honor 7S.
