I am fan of Huawei mobile phone since 2012 with Huawei U8950D => Huawei A199 => Huawei Honor 3C => Huawei Honor 4X (my current phone)
Besides, I share my experience and gifted to my gf (Honor 3C Lite) and mum (Honor 4C, which is just bought yesterday).
As for my survey and comparison for the mid-range mobile phone available in Malaysia (is original set with warranty in Malaysia, AP set/ imported from China is not counted). So far the Honor series phones are the most comparative which is compared to Asus Zenfon, Lenovo, Xiaomi (only these brands are considered value for money, if you don't mind to pay for the brands' advertisement, you may choose other than these brands).
Well, back to the main story, will like to share the new release of Huawei Honor 7, which only available in China as usual on 7 July 2015 via Vmall China .
How value for money it does? Let's the spec and price speak~
The Android 5.0 Lollipop-based Honor 7 features an aluminium alloy design and sports a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixel) display with a pixel density of 423ppi.
