Huawei's latest Honor phone, the 7X, packs a huge screen and dual camera setup into this blue, metal body. 

It doesn't have the glitz and glamour of phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8, but it has a saving grace: a much lower price.

There's no official price as yet, but it's expected to be below £300 (the previous Honor 6X 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.

There's no waterproofing on this phone so keep it safely away from drinks.

It charges using the older Micro-USB standard, but at least there's still a headphone jack in place.
