Depending on the use that will be made of them, it is mandatory to compare several models with each other.The operating system is a matter of taste; on this 7S 16 Go, Honor chose Android.
If this first characteristic is not blocking for you, let’s go to the tests to find out if it is adapted to your uses.
Our tests have shown that this 7S 16 Go is sufficient for the majority of cases.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.

Is the 7S 16 Go compatible for nomadic use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
7S 16 Go’s really small.A size of 5.45 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Forget the videos, too.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
The device is equipped with Wifi.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.This will even be possible with competing operators.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
We found out that this 7S 16 Go doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
The 3020 mAh battery is within the average.Enough to get through the day.
In conclusion on battery charging, Honor has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
Interesting for the videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.The same goes for listening to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
We would have liked the 7S 16 Go to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
Equipped with an LCD screen, this smartphone corresponds to a standard type on the current market.Liquid crystals have the advantage of being technically well-designed in plants.
Honor has also designed this product for audio use.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Honor’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
For games, you need performance.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
After our tests, we find out that this 7S 16 Go is in the lowest rankings.The Mediatek MT6739 (28 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.Which makes it look just passable.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.Knowing that some users need more space, Honor has provided a free space for an extension.
Whatever your use, unless you are playing H24, the battery is sufficient.This model is identical to what you will find in the competition.The power is 3020 mAH, well enough for the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.The components do not allow for a quality display.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
For audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Honor has a long history of designing quality products.
The manufacturer has made a system perfectly integrated with Android.So you have 1 objectives present on this smartphone.
The photo resolution of this 7S 16 Go is 13 Mp, which gives a nice picture.The results of your holiday movies will be of very good quality.However, it does not have HDR technology.
You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The 7S 16 Go in conclusion
The design of this 7S 16 Go is well done and corresponds to consumer expectations.It’s a very good quality model.In conclusion, it is a good product.
