    I'd say yes! Bummer it doesn't have usb-c or NFC, But what makes this phone so good is the screen, performance, decent camera and amazing build quality. All for $199.
    That's great to hear.
    Do post some pictures taken with the 7X camera when you get a chance.

    I couldn't have said it any better!

    And if you're on T-Mobile in the US, they don't have full coverage of the frequencies needed to get the most of of their network... Moto, for example, covers Band 66, and Huawei/Honor don't - not even the flagship Mate 10/10 Pro.
    False. At least I know the Mate 10 will cover the new longer range 600mhz bands that T Mobile invested in. M

    The lack of Wi-Fi 5ghz would be the biggest downer for me. For the price of course it's acceptable though

    It isn’t. I cross-checked this info with phonescoop.com and none of them support B66.

    Thanks for the confirmation. It sucks but it doesn't surprise me as most unlocked phones don't support it

    Yes, it does indeed, but I suppose something has to give to meet their budget pricing targets.

    I’ve also compared it to my iPhone SE, which is an outstanding little smartphone. It, too, lacks B66, but performs rather well regardless. The same is true of my iPhone 7. So perhaps it matters less than I’d initially thought.

    I like to have phones that have the best cellular support, but with that said at this point, a significant number of tmobile phones don't support it so it is not a big deal, unless you are looking for it.

    It's a new band for TMO. I hope we will have more phones supporting it in 2018.

    Most definitely. More phones will support it in 2018. My only point was that knocking the honor 7x for not having it isn't fair at this time.

    I thought T-Mobiles new band is Band 71?

    For the US, I would agree the X7 is probably the best option. However, it gets a little foggy if the Moto G5 Plus is on sale. The G5 has a little bit better screen when it comes to viewing angles, has a nano coating against water and performs a bit faster with less bloat due to almost pure android. The X7 however, has faster and better quality cameras, has a higher resolution screen, form factor makes it easier to hold, and soon it will have face unlock. It's kind of a toss up when those phones are close in price.

    I believe 71 is the new 600mhz, which hardly any phone supports right now. Band 66 is a derivative of band 4 and not really used. the Honor X7 supports the bands most of the T-mobile phones support, you are not losing anything.

    Band 71 is the newest but literally only 3 phones support it, the v30, v30 plus and s8a. All of which are carrier phones. There are no unlocked phones that support it so I wouldn't fault this phone for not having it

    Also keep in mind that this phone doesn't support LAA, which according to tmobile has "material impacts in speed performance – increasing speeds 5-10X". Lower end phones won't support this though, but it is a difference between low end and the high end and the speed can make a difference if you are getting poor speeds and LAA is deployed in the area

    It probably also won't support carrier aggregation, qam 256, and 4x4 mimo, which are also features not typically in lower end phones.

    No. Moto G5+. Huawei still hasn't stopped being Huawei on the privacy and security front. As soon as that changes, they will be able to have a real competition against the Moto G line.
    Hell no. The G5 plus speaker is a complete joke
