Honor released Honor 7 series in India targetting low-end users. Honor 7C which comes with face unlock and 5.99-inch Full view display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It runs on latest Android Oreo and price starts from the Rs. 9,999 on Amazon India for the basic model and the one with 4GB RAM and 64GB internals comes with Rs. 11,999. So, Now we have many choices to chose from so which one should you buy? Let’s see some difference and features of both the device.

Design:

Honor 7C and Asus Zenfone Max Pro both look good in the hand but Zenfone max pro looks like a clone of Redmi Note 5 Pro. Honor 7S have a horizontal dual camera and the back is made up of metal, while it has brushed metal finish it is prone to smudges. The fingerprint reader is at the back which is perfectly positioned.

Hardware:

Honor 7C is packed with the entry-level Snapdragon 450 chipset with coupled 64GB onboard storage and 4GB of RAM. It runs all apps without lag but still lacks the 600 series chipset like their competitors.

While Asus used Snapdragon 636 power efficient chipset which we have seen in Redmi Note 5 Pro. It’s packed with 32/64GB storage and 3/4GB RAM variants. This device can easily run high graphics games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 without lags.

Software:

Honor 7C doesn’t disappoint us in software as it comes with the latest Android 8.0 but the thing is its customized with EMUI 8.0. I am not a fan of the EMUI. It also comes with the face unlock and biker mode.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro runs on Android 8.1 and company also promises 2 major Android update and that’s insane. It doesn’t come with highly customized skin like EMUI and it’s pure android.

Honor 7C camera is not even close to the Max Pro’s 13 MP (f/2.2, 1.12µm) + 5 MP (f/2.4, 1.12µm) lenses. The front camera has an 8-megapixel sensor.

Battery:

Honor 7C is packed with the 3000mAh battery while Asus Zenfone Max Pro is packed with the massive 5000mAh battery. Two days battery life on Max Pro is insane and makes it a winner.

Final Verdict:

Honor 7C is a well-designed phone with a dual horizontal camera at the back with the price tag of Rs. 9,999, Though it will never match the competition to Asus because it provides better value for money. Redmi Note 5 and RealMe is also a good option in this price range.
