    In the past few years, Honor has fast become the king of budget smartphones. They regularly deliver well-built handsets which push the boundaries of specifications at their respective price points.

    We’ve already seen the View 10 and 7X this year, both excellent devices in their own right. Now down at the entry-level, we have the Honor 7A.

    It’s OK not to expect too much from a sub £150 handset, although when you see an Honor badge, you expect at least one specification to shout at you. The most eye-catching draw of the 7A is the 18:9 ratio screen. Last year’s trend at the high-end, there have been few budget devices that have stretched to this form factor.

    Other features are fairly standard; the tried and tested Snapdragon 430 powers the phone for one. The main 13MP camera is unremarkable, although still a great shooter for the price.

    Honor have engaged in some wizardry for the selfie camera though. 8MP is high for a budget phone, but they haven’t stopped there; you’ll also find an adjustable LED flash for better low light selfies, plus a true face-unlock feature.

    There’re also some audio enhancements. Honor claim the main speaker is “200%” louder than a conventional smartphone (whatever that means). The specification sheet tells me it tops out at 88dB (loud) and has dedicated software processing.

    Honor’s design language remains true – the phone is all rounded edges with a glossy, highly reflective finish. As a final bonus, the UK model is Dual SIM with a 3rd slot for Micro SD.
