4. Honor 7A

Honor 7A was launched as a budget smartphone in the last week of May and has a great value for money score. It has simple looks (nothing extraordinary) but the hardware configuration and performance is one the best for any phone priced under 9000.

It has a 5.7-inch HD+ display and has an aspect ratio of 18:9 (bezel-less display). It is powered by an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Chipset and is backed by 3 GB of RAM. It scores around 45000 on the Antutu Benchmark which is a good score for a smartphone in this price range. The performance is smooth and it can very well handle all the day to day tasks or watching video or playing some low to medium end games. It is not meant for high-end gaming as the processor and the GPU does not support it and affects the performance.

It has 32 GB of inbuilt storage and can be expanded by up to 256 GB. On the camera side, it has a dual rear camera with 13 MP and 2MP sensor and on the front, it has an 8 MP sensor. The images from both front and rear are both up to the mark given the price range and the camera performs equivalently to the competitors in this price range. It also supports portrait/bokeh shots from the rear camera and it works well.

This smartphone runs on EMUI 8.0  which is a custom skin based on Android Oreo. The UI is responsive but has some bloatware which cannot be removed. It has a battery rated at 3000 mAH which keeps the phones backed up for a day easily.

Honor 7A is a complete budget smartphone and is a good option for a pricing of under 9000.
