Big on display, small on price
Huawei-owned Honor isn't trying to battle the iPhone X ($1,099.99 at Best Buy) or Galaxy S8 ($614.72 at Amazon.com) with its latest phone. Instead, the Honor 7X is aimed squarely at those of you who don't want to splash the cash on elite handsets, but still want some of the pizzazz that comes with them.
With an expected price somewhere under the £300 mark, the 7X is more closely related to the similarly affordable Moto G5 Plus ($259.99 at Walmart). While the G5 has a water resistant design (which the 7X does not), the Honor's great screen and slicker overall design makes it the more compelling choice. How the two truly stack up remains to be seen in our full review.
There's no official price as yet, but it's expected to be below £300 (the previous Honor 6X ($177.99 at Amazon.com) went on sale for £225). There's no word on when the phone will land in the US or Australia, but for reference, even an estimated £280 price converts to $369 and AU$485.
