SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition)

honor 7X

When you think of bang-for-buck phones, there is really only one brand in the market you think of besides Xiaomi, and that brand is honor. This year, their affordable mid-ranger is called the honor 7X and it’s an excellent device for the money.

Inside, the honor 7X is powered by a Kirin 659 processor mated to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It’s also got a 3,340 mAh battery to keep the lights on and a 16MP + 2MP primary camera at the back for bokehlicious photos. If you think those specs sound familiar, that’s because they are. They’re pretty much identical to that of Huawei’s Nova 2i.

The only part where the honor 7X loses out is in the front camera, where the honor 7X only features an 8MP selfie shooter compared to the Nova 2i’s dual-camera selfie shooter. Still, you do save some money so if selfies aren’t your thing, this may be the better device for you.

UPDATE: Good news! We have updated and published a brand new Best smartphones under RM1,200 guide! It includes the new devices that have launched since this guide was published as well as the new discounted prices thanks to zero-rated GST. You can check it out here.
