If you haven’t heard of the Honor brand of smartphones, where have you been!? Honor is brought to you by Huawei and boasts a range of affordable Android smartphones with impressive features that have become top sellers in hi. With four new styles just launched on pre-order, we compare them side by side on the four most important features so that you can make the right choice based on your needs.

The line up:

Looks:

Honor 7S (R2199) – 5.45 inch HD screen. Available in Blue, Black and Gold. Metal & plastic body.

Honor 7A (R2699) – 5.7 inch HD screen. Available in Blue, Black and Gold. Metal & plastic body.

Honor 7C (R3599) – 5.99 inch HD screen. Available in Blue and Gold. Metal & plastic body.

Honor 8X (R5499) – 6.5 FHD screen. Available in Blue. Aluminium & glass body.

With sleek rounded corners and lightweight metal bodies in trendy metallic colours, all of the Honor devices have got the looks. But standing out from the rest is the Honor 8X. The 8X has an ultra premium look and feel thanks to an aluminium and glass body, giving it the look and feel of a high end device of double the price. Each phone has a generous screen size with the smallest, the Honor 7S boasting a large 5.45 inch screen going all the way up to a massive 6.5 inch on the Honor 8X. Whichever one you choose, you won’t miss out on size.

Memory:

Honor 7S (R2199) – 2GB RAM + 16GB expandable memory

Honor 7A (R2699) – 2GB RAM + 16GB expandable memory

Honor 7C (R3599) – 3GB RAM + 32GB expandable memory

Honor 8X (R5499) – 4GB RAM + 64GB expandable memory

All of the Honor devices have expandable memory so you can insert a memory card and add more space to your phone. If you prefer a big memory straight out of the box, the 7C and 8X have a generous 32GB and 64GB memory, but don’t worry, if they are out of your budget, the 7S and 7A have a pretty decent 16GB memory.

Camera:

Honor 7S (R2199) – 13MP fast focus front camera + 5MP selfie camera with LED light

Honor 7A (R2699) – 13MP front camera + 8MP selfie camera with LED light

Honor 7C (R3599) – 13MP+2MP Dual front camera + 8MP selfie camera camera with LED light

Honor 8X (R5499) – 20MP+2MP Dual front camera + 16M selfie camera camera with LED light

Either way, you’re going to be taking some pretty epic pics with the new Honor range. The 7S, 7A have a 13MP front camera while the 7C and 8X have dual cameras if you’re serious about getting the perfect shot. All devices in the range have selfie cams with LED lights to get the perfect shot day or night.  

Battery:

Honor 7S (R2199) – 3,020mAh

Honor 7A (R2699) – 3,000mAh

Honor 7C (R3599) – 3,000mAh

Honor 8X (R5499) – 3,750mAh

Even though the battery size of the Honor 7A and 7C are 20mAh smaller than the Honor 7S, Honor claims the 3000mAh battery will last a full day, even for heavy users. If you’re an extra heavy user and burn through battery then the extra 750mAh of the Honor 8X is your best bet.

Other features to consider:

All of these Honor devices are Dual Sim and run on an Android operating system. The Honor 7A, 7C and 8X have face and fingerprint unlock.
