The all new Huawei Honor 7 comes with an innovative fingerprint scanner that isn’t just meant for unlocking your smartphone.

This function may also come in very handy when used with certain banking and payments applications for extra safety.

Sapphire Glass

Another plus point which you would want to consider is the fact that its rear camera uses a Sapphire crystal lens cover to protect itself from scratches. If you do not already know, Sapphire glass is already being used in bulletproof glass, transparent military armour and of course your watch faces to avoid any scratches from forming on the glass. Sapphires is known to be the second-hardest substance on earth and it is said to be at least ten times more resistant to scratches than normal window glass and about 3 times as resistant to Corning’s Gorilla Glass which is the normal type of glass that you will find being used in majority of the smartphones today.

20 Megapixel Rear Camera

Why do you even bother buying a camera? This one of a kind smartphone comes with a crazy 20 megapixel rear camera which gives you the advantage of capturing the highest resolution pictures you could possible catch. Quality of images are one of the main factors that even motivate a person to buy a smartphone in the first place and this phone right here crushes all its competitors who stand nowhere near. You can now snap images from a distance, zoom into those pictures and still get a clear look of the minor details in the snapshot due to its high resolution and pixel density.

Battery Supercharge

The Huawei Honor 7 runs on a battery power packed with 3100 mAh for your daily usage. What makes this battery special is that this isn’t just your ordinary cell which is being used but a quick charge battery instead. You can do a full charge this phone around an estimated time of 1 hour and 25 minutes. If your battery is flat out, all you need to do is charge it for at least 30 minutes and you will be able to get your battery life to about 50%. If you have that need for speed, then this is it.

Nothing relates more to technology and sophistication like speed and this smartphone is all about speed. The benefits of having more processor cores allows your device to be more responsive making multitasking a breeze at the same time. It is time to say goodbye to your delay when running your applications at the same time.
