Honor 8X Full review must read before purchasing


Honor 8X

Here I am not against of Honor but no matter wheather the phone is premium or avaerage every phone has it’s own pros and cons. 

For every user priority matters a lot some may prefer selfies in their phone and some may prefer performance etc. 

So the cons which I discuss in this article need to be addressed to the persons who feel these cons their top priorities. By this, you people can decide to prefer this phone or need to buy another phone which falls under Honor 8X price range.

Built-quality and Design Of Honor 8X 

From my personal point of view I liked this design very much… You will get alluminum frame which make phone premium while holding. 

Moreover you will get duaql color tone on the back side of your phone. When ever the light shift you will get to see varuients of color blue which makes phone different from others. 

The placements of dual camera is also so impressive and doesn’t feel clutery. 

Display of Honor 8X

The display you will get in Honor 8X is 6.5 Inch IPS FULL HD+. It comes with 19:9 aspect ratio.

We know that every phone is equipped with notch, but in this phone you will get small Notch and on the other hand you will get less chin by this it makes you feel comfotable in your hands while playing games as well as holding it. 

Coming to color contrast you will get little bit over staurated color but you can adjust this in thew settings. 

You need to go > Settings > Color Mode and Temperature from there you can select Vivid color to Normal Color then you will get to see natural colors.

Moreover this phone has “TUVRheinland Certified” this is basically given to televisions for eye comfort. But this phone has this certificate this means your eyes not gonna harm if you play games for longer hours. 

Many people are askinbg related to notification Light LED in Honor 8X because LED light is not present in onePlus 6T.

RAM managment in Honor 8X 

However you have two varients, but if you consider RAM managment in Honor 8X 4GB varient. The value may seem less but it’s performing very good. Even games like PUBG are stored in memory for longer periods of time. 

If you try load many games at a time at that time it won’t give you proper result. 

Battery of Honor 8X 

Honor 8X comes with 3750 mAh battery which is pretty decent and the battery life is also good.  

It lasts easily for full-working day and if you use it only for WhatsApp messages and calls then it can last around 1 and half day easily. 

So there is no issues regarding battery life it can easily last for single day though you’re a heavy user. 

On the other hand , you won’t get any fast charging support and it takes 2 hrs to charge from 0 to 100.

Sensors in Honor 8X 

Coming to sensors Honor had taken care of each sensor so they did not skip any sensor. You will get all sensors as same which you get on High-end mobiles. Even you will be having a fingerprint sensor and face unlock as well…

When we often speak about face-unlock , many questions may get into our mind like speed , accuracy and working at night time. 

To be noted , the accuracy is very perfect and as well as speed and at night times you need to keep your phone brightness to maximum. Then there won’t be any problem. 

Now let’s have a look over some features which are present and which are not. 

So in Honor 8X you will get FM Radio and you will get support for screen casting and even you will be having WideVine L1 support which means you can watch Netflix , Amazon Prime in HD quality. 

In this you wont get NFC and IR blaster as well. 

Call-quality and Signal reception in Honor 8X. 

Usually you won’t get much problem in Honor phones regarding signal reception and call-qiality. So you won’t face any problem regarding call quality. 

Sound from 3.5 MM jack connected. 

Usually you need to keep 50% of volume to get required sound but here you need to keep volume upto 80% only then you will get proper sound output from 3.5 mm jack. 

On the other hand, you will get some setting s related to sound , to access these settings you need to connect your headphones to 3.5 mm jack. 

After then you need to go to <settings<Huawei Histen Sound Effetcts. So here you will see it is set to Auto. Now you need to select to Natural so you will get slight improvment in the volume. 

Sound from the speaker is also not so loud. Even in noise surrounding you cant hear the call ring even. 

Software of Honor 8X 

You will get custom EMUI version 8.2.0 with Android version 8.1.0 and moreover when we talk about updates , ya.. You will get updates but not so early. 

We are familar with cutom UI of Honor phones they used to be very clumsy and sometimes even gets lag. But suprisingly you will get no lag in this phone. The custom UI is nicerlyt placed and workiing wiothout any lags. 

You are already familiar with features of custom UI, like you can use dual apps and many others. 

Even you will get party mode featurtes by which you can connect your friends Honor phone by which you can play the same song on connecyted honor devices. 

Processor of Honor 8X 

Next plus point is that you will get Kirin 710 processor ( 12 nm , 8 cores , 4 powerfull cores) which is pretty good. We have seen that previous Honor phone we would get Kirin 659 processor which are not evenm suitable for gaming. 

With this processor it can easily handle high graphical games easily without any lag even , Asphalt, Modern Combact 5 etc. 

You will get  Malli G 51 MP4 GPU which isn’t much powerfull so while playing PUBG you may notice little bit of frame drops and lags as well. 

When yiu use phone in your day to day life the CPU is blazing fast you will enjoy using phone at normal use. 

Moreover you wont notice any over heating while playing heavy games also. 

What You will get in the Box 

Normal than other you will get screen guard and case along with the box. 

Camera of Honor 8X

In single word I can say , camera performance is very bad in Honor 8X. Moreover , Honor 9N which is cheaper than Honor 8X have good performance. 

You will get 20 MP f/1.8 and 2 MP depth sensor and in front you will have 16 MP camera f/2.0. You may think that the hardware of camera is pretty decent. But not only hardware makes the camera quality better. 

Processor is supportable but you won’t get 4K video recording. You can jusy record video upto 1080P 60 FPS and youwon’t get any stabilization this means you will get shaky video. 

You can record Slomotion video with 720P 480 FPS but trust me the quality of Slomotion video is too bad. 

Though the hardware is good , the color reproduction is very bad you will notice different color while you capture the photos. You won’t get real colors at all. 

Even auto-focuing doesn’t work properly. It takes time to catch the correct focus.
