HONOR X7b Review Philippines: New Budget Battery Champ?

HONOR X7b Philippines Review: The New Budget Battery Champion?Following the X9b and X8b, it’s only natural that HONOR completes its lineup in the Philippines with the X7b. As the most affordable model in the brand’s X series, the main selling point of the X7b is its large-capacity HONOR X7b battery. Aside from the display and camera upgrades, is the X7b a good budget choice? HONOR X7b Philippines Review: Design

From a distance, you might mistake the X7b for the HONOR 90, given its dual-circle design with 3 cameras built in. Even the hue of the Emerald Green colorway of our review unit reminded us of the HONOR 90 — the only difference being that the X7b is positioned as a budget offering.Unlike the previous 

HONOR X7  Battery model, the X7b finally sports a punch-hole display, giving it a more modern look. Other than these changes, the X7b is roughly the same size as the older X7 model. As for the button and port layout, you still get a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. A headphone jack and USB-C port are new to the X7b, which is a feature we welcome on any budget phone. HONOR X7b Philippines Review: Display and SpeakersOne of the biggest upgrades on the X7b is the display: aside from being bigger, you don’t get Full HD+ resolution, a punch hole, and a higher brightness range. The chin may be thick, but we’re a little more forgiving of the X7b since it’s a budget phone.

The only nitpick we might have with the X7b’s display is that it only has Widevine L3, so you can only watch Netflix videos in HD resolution. Aside from the display, the X7b also gets an upgrade in the audio department with a stereo speaker setup. The sound is decent for a budget phone, and the audio fidelity is well preserved even when we cranked the volume to max.HONOR X7b Philippines Review: CameraWhile the X7b’s cameras are average, the 108-megapixel main camera is an exception. It’s the same ISOCELL HM6 sensor found on the X9b and X8b, so the image quality is noticeably better than the 50-megapixel camera used by its predecessor.

We took a few photos with the X7b, and they looked detailed for a budget phone in well-lit conditions. Low-light shots aren’t the best, but as long as you have a steady hand, you can take usable photos. When it comes to video, the X7b is limited to Full HD recording at 30FPS. It may not be the best phone for video, but the performance of the ISOCELL HM6 makes it suitable for situations where you need to shoot video – and you only have the X7b at your side.

HONOR X7b Philippines Review: Internals and Battery Life

HONOR realized that they made a mistake with the outdated Helio G37 processor on the X7a, so the X7b goes back to the Snapdragon 680. The X7b comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, which is on par with what most budget phones offer these days.We’re familiar with the Snapdragon 680, which is generally an entry-level chip that focuses on HONOR X7b battery  life. Gaming with the X7b isn’t recommended due to the Snapdragon 680’s GPU, but you can push it to run games like Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail at the lowest graphics settings.Like other X-series phones, the X7b ships with MagicOS 7.2 based on Android 13. We don’t know when it will be updated to Android 14 – currently, the Magic6 Pro is the only HONOR device to ship with MagicOS 8.0 based on Android 14.In PCMark’s X7b 6000mAhHONOR X7b battery benchmark, we clocked 18 hours and 44 minutes of battery life,

which is an impressive number. This roughly translates to about 2 days of battery life. The X7b also charges faster than its predecessor at 35w, which means you can get a full charge in less than 2 hours.HONOR X7b review Philippines: summary and conclusionThe HONOR X7b is a big improvement over the previous X7 model, thanks to a higher-resolution main camera and an updated display with a modern punch hole and Full HD+ resolution. While the processor isn’t an upgrade, the X7b shines with its excellent HONOR X7b battery life, making it one of the longest-lasting budget phones in the Philippines in 2024.
