Looks & Design:

Huawei has designed its Shot X with best blend of aesthetics and smooth looks. Huawei Shot X is a metal bodied smartphone with finely lined edges giving it a luster added with craftiness of diamond style perfectness of creased edges. On the other hand Samsung has also designed A7 with aluminum metal body with honestly it looks almost same as Samsung other smatphones, in a first glance. Although apart from this both the smart phones sands equal in slim body. Huawei Shot X has fingerprint security chip located on the left edge where usually smart keys use to be. This design makes it more convenient to unlock the ShotX as compare to the fingerprint scanner on the rear of phone. Again it is a creative approach of Huawei to test a perfect spot for fingerprint scanner. But in this regards Samsung A7 cannot stand in comparison with Huawei ShotX as former has no fingerprint security unlock feature at all.

Music is life of young generation be it the light mood, joyous and moments of happiness on a hand or depressed, sad times on the other, music is always there. And for that youth prefer a smart phone that can serves at best the needs of playing music with perfect experience of sound. Keeping this in focus Huawei has placed two slots with gauzed face on the bottom of Shot X. Music through these speakers produces with the same effects as it produces through a music player. Even if you don’t have your hand-free at the moment you can play the music and put the Huawei Shot X upside down in your jeans pocket, music will be clear because there will be no obstacle against the speaker slots.

Anyhow Samsung A7 is a bit disadvantageous in this capacity as well. Because Samsung has designed the speaker at the rear of the phone just on the right side of the camera lens instead of placing it on the bottom.

Display Screen:

Huawei ShortX has best body-to-screen ratio, with 80% for screen as compared to 20% body with speakers and keys on the front side. It is a comparatively large display to experience best of pictures and videos. Screen of ShortX is 5.2-inch, 1920 X 1280 full HD, IPS display with pixel density of 423ppi. However in display screen Samsung A7 has a bit larger screen than ShortX. A7 has 5.5” Super AMOLED, full HD screen but with slightly low resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The pixel density in turn is 401ppi.

Large screen of A7 is not comparable with Huawei Short X when resolution, pixel density and color vibrancy is under focus. Huawei ShortX though a bit smaller but greatly enhances display experience for the consumer. So at the day end it is best quality in display than best quantity of display size. Further, the difference of .3” in screen is negligible in this condition.

OS, Processor Storage:

Operating System incorporated in Huawei ShortX is Android 5.1 Lollipop added with EMUI 3.1. In comparison to Samsung A7 Huawei did a great job by incorporating a better operating system in ShortX. It is also noted that due to updated OS Huawei ShortX provides its users smoother functioning and ease of operations.

Samsung A7 has operating system of Android 4.4.4 that is a bit outdated as now even OS in Samsung other products are advanced for example Lollipop in Galaxy S4. No doubt Samsung A7 is new smart phone introduced in the market by Samsung but it has failed to provide it with a better or at least new operating system.

Huawei ShortX has been manufactured with Qualcomm Snapdragon 616, MSM8939 Octa-core 1.5 GHz processor for smooth functioning of this unmatched technology craftiness of Huawei. However, Samsung Galaxy A7 offers Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa-core processors, includes two quad-core A53 chips clocked at 1.5 and 1GHz.

Storage is always a hot pursuit for smart phone customers. 13MP of camera that certainly provides you with best quality of selfies and pictures and video clips to capture your memorable moments, and for that Huawei has provided with 16GB inbuilt memory. Storage in ShortX is further expendable up to 128GB through MicroSD external memory. Whereas Samsung Galaxy A7 is quite similar with respect to the inbuilt memory with 16GB but the difference is that the expendable memory option through MicroSD is a limit in A7. Only up to 64 GB memory is supported by the A7. As per the primary memory both the smart phones have equally 2GB RAM.

Clearly Huawei ShortX is a choice with a better option of expendable memory of 128GB. Subsequently, smart phone consumers with love of songs collection, selfies and video recording, internet surfing or video chatting anything that one can name is best experienced on ShortX. Because definitely one would hate if he cannot download his media shared by a friend at whatsapp just for the reason of low storage availability. Adding to this, what worse could be else if you are restricted under the limit of 64GB to extend your phone’s storage through external memory? So in a nut shell, Huawei ShortX is a real time best choice to avoid such situations.

Camera Specs:

Camera has specially focused in manufacturing of Huawei ShotX. As described in the early lines Huawei has crafted it Shot X for young generation deeply in love with selfies and capturing moments of possibly each joyous as well as sad situation. Also Huawei has gone in a nonconventional way of incorporating Camera in this marvelous phone. It has a single 13MPs, Sony BSI camera with dual tone color flash plus rotatable angle of 180, so that a single rotatable Camera with 13MP resolution can be used for selfies as well as clicking snaps. Imagine 13MP camera for selfies and the angle options available for clicks.

However Samsung A7 has conventional design of camera spots, one rear Camera of 13MP resolutions (same as in Huawei ShotX) that is good for clicks and video but at the end of front Cam Samsung A7 has fallen too short to stand besides ShortX. Front Camera of Samsung is of 5MPs that can be satisfactory for selfie lovers only in a case they already have purchased the Samsung A7. Otherwise, Huawei ShortX with 13MP selfie clicker is a real attraction, no doubt.


“Longer battery hours” is a general priority of Huawei while manufacturing its smart devices, especially the smart phones. Hence it has built a 3100mAh with larger capacity of storage battery in Huawei ShortX, subsequently long hours of high technology device experience are available for the consumers. In a single charging, consumers can enjoy 25 hours of voice calling only, or 8 hours of online video chat and streaming. However if we focus on photography and video capturing it will be 4 hours for local video capturing and 4 hours with photography while using flash light.

Samsung A7 offers 2500mAh battery with maximum 17 hours of talk time, a way to less than ShortX. Similar small capacity hurdles internet surfing and online video chatting on Samsung A7. Grabbing Huawei ShortX will be a smart move to avoid low battery issues.

Pricing & Final Verdict:

Guess what? Huawei offers you ShortX for just 35999 Rupees only, against the high price of Samsung A7 that is 42,999 Rupees. For a phone that is way far better in features, specification, Camera, Storage, Operating System and above all available in least price, who can afford looking for another option?
