We have written a post on which we have mentioned about all the Honor 7X pros. Even now we feel it is one of the best value for money device. Having said that, there is nothing called a perfect phone. Each phone will have some or other cons. So here is the Honor 7X Cons according to us.
Honor 7X Cons- 5 reasons not to Buy
These are may not be a deal breaker for many. But it is good to know before picking the one for your self.
- No USB-C port: Honor 7x comes micro USB slot for the charging and data transfer. Considering the features it packs, lack of latest USB-C type port is little disappointment.
- No Optical image stabilization: Camera is one of the key strength of the Honor 7X. However, lack of OIS is felt while recording videos and clicking images in low light condition.
- Lack of fast charging: Honor 7x packs 3340 mAh battery and comes with 10W charger in the box. In our review time, charging the device to 100% from 0% took close to two and half hours. The inclusion of fast charging option could have been better according to us.
- No Android Oreo out of the box: Running on the latest Android version is what many users wish for. Though Honor promised for Oreo update to Honor 7X, users have to wait for it. The EMUI 5.1 on top of Android Nougat does the fantastic job. There is no doubt about it. But Android Oreo out of the box is something which we miss on this device.
- No dedicated microSD card slot: Honor 7X comes with hybrid sim card slot. This means you can either use 2 sim cards or 1 sim card with the microSD card. 64GB internal storage on a higher variant is sufficient for most of the user. But if you have chosen 32GB variant and using 2 sim cards, then you might feel the absence of dedicated microSD card slot.
