Ever since my encounter of the Honor 3c last year, I’ve been impressed about it over Xiaomi’s entry-level Redmi 1s as it simply delivers better usability than its competition, we then have the Honor 6 Plus which was reviewed by our very own Aaron and he has been glued to the device and dreaded the day he needs to return the phone to the team as it was a phone that’s too good that you’ll need to experience it to believe it. Fast forward today, the Honor 7 is the new hero device that continues to deliver flagship features without breaking the bank and we are just in great timing to give it our unboxing treatment.

The Honor 7’s packaging comes with the standard accessories you would expect from a new smartphone, while it doesn’t come with a protective case like some other Chinese phone makers, the Honor 7 fortunately has its screen protector preinstalled and that actually saves some trouble in getting your screen scratched if you are not in time to get one, I’m also glad that the Honor 7 still comes with a pair of in-ear headset which some folks will still require.
We’ll be working on the final review of the Honor 7 itself and perform comparisons with some other devices that we have on hand, so stay tuned on this space while we work hard on it and enjoy the video.
