Updated on 2017-11-28 by Geetansh Arora

Honor 7X and Moto G5S Plus Comparison

Honor 7X is the latest smartphone from Huawei in the mid-range segment with a dual camera on the back. It will be competing with existing dual camera devices like the Mi A1, Moto G5S Plus, Lenovo K8 Note. In this article, we take a look at the comparison of Honor 7X and Moto G5S Plus. 

1. Design & Display Honor 7X vs Moto G5S Plus

Honor 7X comes with a 5.9-inch Full View Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio while Moto G5S Plus comes with a Full HD 5.5-inch display. Both the phones have good color reproduction and viewing angles. Definitely, the full view display gives better look to Honor 7X, which also looks premium, and if you consume a lot of video multimedia content, Honor 7X display would suit better.

The build quality of both phones is great but we feel it is slightly better on the Moto G5S Plus.  

2. SOC/Processor Comparison

Honor 7X comes powered with company's own Kirin 659 Processor while Moto G5S Plus has Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor on the inside. In terms of Antutu benchmark, Honor 7X scores 63800 which is equivalent to that of the Moto G5S Plus score of 64098, so both the phones are expected to perform in a similar manner. Snapdragon 625 is more efficient chipset so you can expect better battery backup on Moto G5S Plus.

3. RAM & Storage Comparison

Moto G5S Plus comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and Honor 7X comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage. Both devices have a hybrid sim slot which is something we hate because you can either use 2 sims cards or 1 sim and a MicroSD card.

4. Software Comparison

Moto G5S Plus is running stock android just like other Motorola phones. Honor 7X, on the other hand, runs EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.0 which offers more customization and themes. Both phones perform well in everyday usage. There is no lag while switching between apps. Both phones can handle popular games very well. Moto G5S Plus is slightly faster because of the stock android.

So on the software side Moto G5S Plus is better because of stock android plus it will get faster updates.

5. Camera Comparison

Both Honor 7X and Moto G5S Plus have a dual camera on the back. Honor 7X comes with a 16MP+2MP Dual camera and Moto G5S Plus comes with a 13MP+13MP camera. Information from both camera sensors is used to give a depth effect to the pictures. 

If we talk about clarity in pictures from the back camera then you will see similar performance. The difference we noticed was that the Moto G5S Plus has slow shutter speed and takes couple of seconds to capture the shot. Video recording from the back camera is average on Honor 7X and great on Moto G5S Plus because of EIS. While walking the video on Honor 7X is shaky but on Moto G5S Plus it is very stable. So if you record videos on your phone you should go for G5S Plus.

The front camera on both Moto G5S Plus and Honor 7X is an 8MP shooter. Moto G5S Plus has a front flash as well. The image quality is good on both phones and front flash on Moto G5S Plus helps in low light selfies.

6. Battery & Charging Comparison

Moto G5S Plus comes with 3000mAh battery while Honor 7X comes with a slightly higher 3340mAh battery. In terms of charging, G5S Plus comes with a fast charger which helps to charge the phone from 0 to 50% in just 40 minutes. Honor 7X, on the other hand, does not have fast charging. Battery backup on both devices is average and you can expect them to last for a day on a single charge.
