Huawei Honor 7 4G LTE Dual SIM Smartphone Review

Last Friday Huawei has presented the latest smartphone for the European market in London: Huawei Honor 7. The equipment is with fingerprint sensor, metal enclosure, Full HD display and octa-core processor for a very good level. The unit also dual SIM capable and supports all relevant for LTE frequency ranges in Europe, making it once again apart from the competition. I could look at me the Honor 7 spot at the launch event and would like to describe to you my first experience with the device in this article.


Honor 7 in detail 

The Honor 7 is available in the colors white and gray. It will soon be available in the dealers,  but you will not get the phone from the network provider. The operating system is still quite current, the Android 5.0 3.1 surface comes together with Huawei EMUI used. In the first test, the software was smooth and quick, the games run smoothly on the honor 7 based on huawei HiSilicon Kirin 935 octa-core processor.



Honor 7 itself is with dimensions of 143.2 x 71.9 x 8.5 mm, this one has a pretty big 5.2-inch display with full HD resolution, which can display multimedia content well and ideal for photos and videos. The body material is made of metal, the screen is covered with Gorilla Glass. This affects the Honor 7 very valuable and can keep up the build quality better than much more expensive smartphones.



The Honor 7 provide the open version without SIM lock, and it is currently available on . With a budget price, you can get a very well equipped smartphone that offers some features that are otherwise only known from the luxury class. One example is the integrated  sensor on the back, which can be used quickly and reliably to unlock the device. The cameras are very good for the price you wanted, they offer 20-megapixel (rear) and 8 Megapixel (Front cam). The internal memory is 16 gigabytes in size, an extension via microSD card is possible. The memory is 3 GB in size, multitasking is therefore likely to be without any problems and with many apps simultaneously.



Dual SIM with LTE


An absolute unique feature is the dual SIM function with LTE and simultaneous use of both SIM cards, which is not common in Europe. The first SIM card in GSM, UMTS and LTE network can be used during the second SIM card registered in the 2G network and at any time can be achieved. Many other devices you had to actively switch between the two SIM cards.



We has tested Huawei Honor 6 last year, this one should be the best seller in Huawei honor series smartphones. It performed well per the users’ feedback. Now the newer model honor 7 is available. We will see how Honor 7 will perform, but we are sure the honor 7 would be a new star!  


Difference Between Huawei E5770 and E5730s

In the market of network equipment, Huawei is always one of the most influential companies. We can see the clear demonstration of how the world is evolving on vendor network equipment on two mobile routers: First one is the snow white Huawei E5730 and the other one Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 showed at the MWC 2015 in Barcelona. Somebody may ask what’s the difference them. The list below shows some basic difference between them:


Huawei E5730s

Huawei E5770

Type 3G Mobile Hotspot 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot
Data Rate DL 42Mbps/UL 5.76Mbps DL 150Mbps/UL 50Mbps
WLAN 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz
Battery 5200mAh 5200mAh
Dimensions 99.0mm×66.3mm×22.5mm 106.0 mm × 68.4 mm × 22.5 mm

It’s no doubt that the RJ 45 port on the Huawei E5770 and E5730 is the top shinning feature. It provides much more possibility of network solution for user. Secondly, the large power capacity is also practical function for most users. As a mobile hotspot, they have the backup functions which can make users have great experience. Actually, they are similar and different at the same time: the power output and input ports and Ethernet port are both at the side. The ports on Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 are covered by a cap, so users have to open the cap and see all the ports. The Huawei E5730 is in white while the E5770 has two colors: white and black.

The boy difference is also obvious: Huawei E5730 has only one power button on the front, while Huawei E5770 has LED screen on the front. On the display, user can see the battery status, network status, SSID and password, connected WiFi users. The battery capacity of 5200mAh is printed on the back of Huawei E5770, but at the body side of E5730.

Huawei E5770 is a little bit thinner than E5730. The batteries in the two devices are both non-removable. But the back cover could be opened and the SIM card slot is there. Huawei E5770 has one SD card slot, but E5730 has no SD card slot. And there is stick besides the SIM card slot. It shows the model number, IMEI number, S/N number, SSID, WiFi password and QR-code to download Huawei Mobile WiFi APP.

The most attractive and important feature for them is the supported networks. Upgraded from Huawei E5730, Huawei E5770 could support peak download speed to 150mbps based on LTE Category 4 chipset. The upload speed could reach 50mbps. E5730 can’t reach the speed but as a 3G mobile hotspot, it’s almost one of the best 3G routers based on its specifications. When Huawei E5730 was on sales, somebody is asking: when can i buy the 4G version of Huawei E5730 with RJ45 port? Now Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 is available. This the version for 4G pocket router with RJ45. So if you like it, it’s time to get one.
