At £139, the Honor 7A is a commendable entrant in the affordable smartphone space. It undercuts entrants like its launch sibling the Honor 7C, the Honor 9 Lite and Motorola’s new G6 Play but for that extra level of affordability, sacrifices have been made. It stands out for that elongated display at such a low price point but beyond that, it feels like a wholly forgettable handset.

Provides questionable value

from TrustedReviews

The Honor 7A simply doesn’t provide enough of an improvement over its predecessor, let alone a credible alternative to its entry-level rivals.
