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 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: well-disguised economy in phablet form

 

Honor smartphones are not known to be flagship-killing mid-range devices, but they have built a steady reputation as solid mid-range, mid-performing devices for the everyday user. With the 8X, Honor has taken its closest step towards offering a phone...

Excellent build quality ; Large, vibrant display ; Huawei's AI camera tech

Micro-USB charging ; Face unlock is inconsistent ; Gaming performance

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...

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

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.

Honor 8X review

 

Watch out for the police, because it's an absolute steal

Great price ; Big, bold, clear screen ; A very sharp look for the cash ; Feature-packed camera

No 4K video ; microUSB charging in 2018?

A bigger and better screen, more power than its rivals, plus serious camera upgrades, and all at a very reasonable price point? It's a no brainer.

Honor 8X review

 

Good looks, performance and value

Great value ; Very modern look ; Good performance

Flaky camera background blur mode ; Micro USB charging ; Honor Play is more powerful

With its solid performance, versatile camera and metal and glass build, the Honor 8X is great way to get a phone that looks and feels expensive but does not cost the earth.
