Honor 7X vs Honor 9i Complete Comparison of DUAL CAMERA Phones

Updated on 2017-11-27 by Geetansh Arora

Honor 7x and Honor 9i Comparison

Honor 7X and Honor 9i are very similar devices. Both have almost same screen size and device size. Both have a Full HD+ Full view display on the front. Both have Kirin 659 chipset with 4GB of RAM. 

Design Comparison

Look wise the only change is on the back side where Honor 9i has a vertical dual camera setup in the middle of device and Honor 7X has a horizontal dual camera setup on the top corner of the device. Front Camera hardware is different for these 2 devices. See image on the top of this article to get an idea about design. Build quality is great on both phones and overall size is also similar.

Camara Comparison

Back camera setup is same on both devices so let's talk about the front camera.

Honor 9i has a dual camera setup in front with 13MP and 2MP sensor. The 13MP sensor is a color sensor and 2MP is a monochrome sensor. Details from both these sensors are combined to produce sharp images with depth/bokeh effect. On the other side, Honor 7X has a single 8MP camera on the front. Honor 9i selfies are much more detailed and have a depth effect so it is safe to say that selfie lovers should prefer the Honor 9i.  

Battery, Charging and Display Comparison

Both Honor 7X and 9i come with 3340 battery and come with a 2A 10 Watt charger. Both devices will charge from 0 to 100% in around 2 hours. The display is also same on both devices. The viewing angles are good with accurate color reproduction. There is a 2.5D glass over the display but we don't think that it is Gorilla glass so applying a tempered glass will be a good option to keep it safe from scratches.

Let's take a look at the comparison of specs, features, and pros cons of Honor 7X and Honor 9i.
