Honor 8X: Should You Buy the £200 Flagship?

by birtanpublished on May 28, 2021

Hey it's Alex from Android Central and today I'm here to answer one simple question should you buy the honor 8x the first thing you need to tell about this device is it has nothing to do the honor of a couple of years ago instead its successor to the honor 7x that's currently approaching its first birthday this is a mid-range of the honours positioning as a phone for people who want a big screen sharp design good performance and long battery life without the extortion of price tag that you might see at the high end so what do you get turns out it's a pretty decent mid tier

Phone that looks a lot more premium in its price tag of just over 200 pounds in the UK yep you've got to deal with that notch up top there but the other itex also gives you a 6.5 inch full HD plus panel with vibrant colors and respectable daylight visibility the sides of brushed aluminium a little bit slippery but with a great hand feel and the back comes with this unique two-tone finish the shifts as it tilts through the lights the physical footprint is about average for a large ish Android phone but the same as the pixel three XL or mate 20 pro although it does feel pre

Light in the hand and this proven curved metal plus glass combo makes it feel reasonably economic fingerprint purists will also appreciate this scanner around the back their performance on the hull is fine but you will notice it's a little bit less performant than the top tier of flagships touch response and animations are just a little SPD and the haptic feedback is also a little bit mushy when you're typing this is absolutely something you can get used to though just be aware you're not getting the very quickest hardware out there on the inside it runs Huawei's newer

Mid-range chip the octa-core 12 nanometer Kirin 710 which has plenty of horsepower on paper thanks to cortex a 73 cause in any case with four gigs of RAM I didn't notice any multitasking issues and 64 gigs of storage plus SD is perfectly fine for this price point that efficient $12 a chip though means that when you throw in a 30 750 milliamp hour battery you can easily get epic longevity out of this phone if that means easily more than a full day per charge you'll need to make do with standard 9 volts you aren't quick charging though as huawei and honours

Supercharge standard is not supported here also microUSB yeah that's not ideal in 2018 either but at least it's flanked by that headphone jack over on the left there from idiophone the honoré texas cameras actually aren't bad at all you've got two in the back 20 megapixel main and two megapixel depth sensing and a single 16 megapixel unit on the front and the dual camera setup gives you all the bokeh enabled portrait goodness that you would expect and all other cameras aren't like it engineered or anything they do benefit from a I scene detection

Similar to pricier Huawei phones in terms of image quality you're looking at something close to a huawei mate 9 as opposed to inking more modern so find in most conditions and the AI can help the picture quality quickly takes a tumble in low light under the polarizing aspect this phone is emui Huawei's interface which sits atop Android 8.1 Oreo this is actually emui 8.2 which comes with the GPU turbo feature for faster gaming with less battery drain emui is usable in the lot less weird than it used to be in years past with iOS knockoff style animations

And the default load up that puts the Google feed front and center the animations and visuals are very different to what you'll find on other androids but what it lacks in polish it makes up for in features so that's the honor 8x not quite a flagship but a finely balanced phone for less than a third of the price of a top-tier flagship so the honor 8x is worth investigating at around the 210 to 220 pound mark if you value battery life and a great big screen compared to more expensive flagships you'll miss out on a really great low-light camera experience

And of course the latest Android Pi software anyway that's it for now check the link down the description for the best prices on the honor 8x right now thanks for watching and I'll see you next time you
