Design

Oppo A7 has the most interesting aesthetics because it features a flagship-class body and a very high screen-to-body ratio. Further, it has a waterdrop notch and it is available in very original colors. On the other hand, Motorola One has the best build quality. It is more compact and pocket-friendly than its opponents and it is also splash resistant. Honor 8X is beautiful and it has even the highest screen-to-body ratio, but it has bigger dimensions.

 

Display

Huawei Honor 8X has one of the biggest displays ever seen on a smartphone. Only the biggest phablets such as Xiaomi Mi Max 3 are bigger than this handset. That is why it is more comfortable for productivity and multimedia. Further, it has a higher Full HD+ resolution, while Oppo A7 and Motorola One have just HD displays.

 

Specs & Software

Besides having a superior display, Huawei Honor 8X also comes with the best hardware department. Under the hood, it sports an octa-core Kirin 710 chipset (a competitor of the Snapdragon 660) and up to 6 GB of RAM. It is faster and more suitable for multi-tasking. Motorola One is at the second place with its Snapdragon 625, but note that it has Android One installed, a stock version of Android treated with faster updates by Google.

 

Camera

Huawei Honor 8X has a slightly better camera department thanks to a bright aperture and higher resolutions for both the rear and the front camera. It captures a lot of detail when there is light, and it does not disappoint in low light conditions, even if its camera performance is evidently worse. Motorola One is a good camera phone and it comes right after the Honor 8X, but Oppo A7 will probably shoot better selfies than both devices.

 

Battery

Given that it has the biggest battery and very efficient components, Oppo A7 will surely last more than Motorola One and Huawei Honor 8X on a single charge. But it does not feature a fast charging technology, so it takes a while to fully charge given that it has 4230 mAh. If you want a fast-charging device, choose the Motorola One and you will still get a good battery life thanks to its efficient components.

 

Price

Huawei Honor 8X is generally a better device and it wins this comparison, but Oppo A7 is better for you if you do not want a device with big dimensions. Huawei Honor 8X is available for less than €250/$285 globally, Oppo A7 costs around €270/$308 and Motorola One was launched with a €300/$342 price tag.
