These are Huawei Honor 7 best features that end users might not know existed brought to you by you Sydney CBD Repair Centre Team.
The feature is great in theory, as it combines improved security (people are less likely to spoof your fingerprint then crack your pin code), with ease and convenience.
Although it’s good to see such advanced features appear on more affordable phones, unfortunately the fingerprint scanning implementation on the Honor 7 is a bit hit and miss.
When setting up the phone you can turn on ‘Voice Wake Up’, which enables you to find a misplaced Honor 7 by using your voice. Before using the feature (which can only be used in English, but gives you the option of US, British and Australian variants) you have to utter the phrase “Dear Honor” a few times for it to calibrate, while trying to avoid the bemused stares of anyone within earshot.
Once this has been done the Honor 7 continually listens out for the “Dear Honor” command, with all the pros and cons that entails.
The Honor 7’s big selling point is that it has a good set of specs considering its price, and if there’s one bit of hardware that will make you sit up and take notice it’s the 20-megapixel rear camera.
This is a fair bit more capable than the Motorola Moto G (2015)’s 13MP snapper, while the Meizu M2 Note, another competitor of the Honor 7, also has a 13MP camera.
It’s powered by Huawei’s own HiSilicon Kirin 935 chipset, replete with an octa-core processor that’s made up of four cores running at 2.2GHz and four running at 1.5GHz. This means that when you want to conserve battery life and aren’t pushing the Honor 7 too hard it will use the slower cores, while if you’re using the handset for more intensive tasks it’ll switch to the speedier ones.
DUAL SIM ACTION
If you do a lot of talking on your smartphone then first of all, congratulations – that’s very old-school of you. Secondly, the Honor 7 could be of interest as it supports dual SIM cards, which means you can swap between networks and tarrifs without having to open up the phone.
It’s certainly handy if you have separate mobile contracts for work and leisure, as it means you don’t necessarily need two phones. The same is true if you have a SIM card dedicated to making phone calls when you’re abroad.
