Honor 7C

The 6-inch Honor 7C is the more expensive phone of the duo, but it'll only set you back £170 (or about $240, AU$310).

Honor 7C

Despite the modest price, the Honor phones come equipped with quick facial recognition the company claims is faster than Apple's iPhone X -- be forewarned, it may not be secure enough for mobile payments.

Honor 7C

Although the Honor's facial recognition doesn't use a 3D depth sensing camera like the iPhone X, it maps out your face with 1,024 different points of interest.
