When buying an expensive Android phone, the decision often boils down to: “What do I get?”. There are so many options out there, an extra camera feature or curve of the front glass may swing the decision if brand loyalty is not a factor.
The Honor 7S sits at the other end of the phone market. It costs £99, cheaper even than Motorola’s Moto G6 Play, widely recognised as the 2018 budget champion.
“What do we lose?": is the question to ask this time. The Honor 7S falls behind very clearly in one area, and it’ll stretch most people’s will to save money with their next phone purchase.
There’s a natural assumption a cheap piece of tech will handle the basics fine, just not more demanding jobs like 3D gaming. The inverse is true here, as it is in many performance-compromised phones. The Honor 7S will play high-end games like Real Racing 3 acceptably well, after prolonged waits on the loading screens, at any rate.
