The Honor 8X is like a super-cheap iPhone XS Max, in all the best ways

 

This shiny, cost-conscious phone comes with dual cameras and more trimmings than you'd expect.

Honor 8X Smartphone Review

 

An extravagant phablet. The Honor 8X offers a large 6.5-inch display, extravagant looks as well as a good mid-range configuration. Find out how the new mid-range processor Kirin 710 can handle everyday tasks in our review.

long battery runtimes ; design ; GPS ; good selfie camera

ergonomics ; contrast of IPS panel ; Wi-Fi ; old USB standard

The Honor 8X is a well-made and good-looking mid-range smartphone (despite having a display notch). The new mid-range processor Kirin 710 supplies the Honor phone with sufficient power, but does cause some hiccups during everyday use. The good battery...

Honor 8X Review: mid-range as good as premium

 

You can probably already guess from the title: Honor has done it again. While it's easy to knock the company as “just a Huawei sub-brand”, it has been rocking the smartphone global market, including the US, with affordable smartphones that sometimes...

Excellent battery life ; Serviceable AI-assisted cameras ; Decent performance ; Value for your money

Still uses micro USB ; Slippery fingerprint magnet design

Honor 8X Review

 

Last year's Honor 7X was an impressive outing combining trendy features with a competitive $200 price tag. Its successor, the Honor 8X, seeks out the natural progression of being better, stronger, and faster – while remaining faithful to its roots with...

Dazzling design ; Long battery life ; Large edge-to-edge screen ; Affordable

Camera can’t handle low light ; AI camera mode tends to produce unrealistic photos ; Weak speaker ; microUSB connector instead of USB-C

Honor 8X review – Flagship-like specs for a fraction of the price

 

Honor has a strong reputation for making top-notch budget smartphones that don't look or feel budget at all, and their latest release, the Honor 8X follows in those footsteps. For 249 Euro / $285 USD, Honor has a strong reputation for making top-notch...

Flagship-like build quality and design ; Large vibrant display ; Great performance ; Above average camera ; Two-day battery life ; 3.5mm audio jack

No IP rating ; MicroUSB charging

This is an iPhone XS Max alternative that costs nearly a quarter of the price

Honor 8X review: well-disguised economy in phablet form | AndroidPIT

 

Are you looking for an affordable smartphone, but don't want to do without a stylish design, a large display and lots of memory? Then you should take a look at the Honor 8X!

For big-screen enthusiasts on a budget, you can do a lot worse than the Honor 8X. Pull this thing out of your pocket and nobody will think you are holding a sub $300 smartphone. Sure, you will have to make compromises on the chip performance and the...

Honor 8X is coming to America (and the rest of the world)

 

The Honor 8X is a smartphone with a big display and a small price tag. First last month, Huawei is now giving the budget phone a global launch.

When Huawei launched the Chinese version of the Honor 8X, the company also introduced a larger version called the Honor 8X Max. That model has a 7.1 inch, 2244 x 1080 pixel display, a 5,000 mAh battery and Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 or Snapdragon 660...

Honor 8X Review | Trusted Reviews

 

A super value mid-range phone

Fantastic battery life ; Great screen ; Good performance ; Swift fingerprint scanner

No wireless or fast charging (and Micro USB port) ; Camera takes a bit of work to get good shots ; Too many pre-installed apps and bloatware

The Honor 8X is a great-value phone that packs in great performance, a fantastic display and seriously impressive stamina for the money. It compares very favourably with the Moto G6 Plus that costs around the same, but in my opinion has a more...

Honor 8X review: Big bang for the bucks

 

Value for money ; Battery life ; Quality design ; Some great camera features

Display could be better ; EMUI is a bit bloated

The Honor 8X offers great value for money, giving you a lot of phone for your money. There's some innovation in the camera and great battery life, but EMUI is a little bloated and the display could be better.
