Honor, which we can position as a sub-brand of Huawei, continues to attract the attention of technology enthusiasts with the latest phone models. The company which has Honor Play as a success demonstration especially in terms of price and performance, appeared with the Honor 8X this time. Here we will give you an overview of the Honor 8X, which is characterized by its modern design and affordable price as well as its camera features.
Honor 8X Review
First of all, when we look at the design of the Honor 8X, we can say that it has a high-end phone look. With a full 6.5-inch screen, this phone has a very thin frame. Thanks to this thin frame, the big screen of the phone is much more prominent. About the screen design, we see a notched screen that has become the latest fashion. Moreover, there is a thinner frame than the old ones at the bottom which makes it look more modern. Normally, the antennas inside the phone provide thickening of the lower frame, while the Honor 8X uses a U-shaped antenna. In this way, the lower part of the frame is equal to the other parts. This allows the phone to look smoother.
On the bottom side, there is a 3.5 mm jack input along with a loudspeaker. Micro usb input is preferred as charge input. This is one of the phone's biggest handicaps. When we look at the rear of the Honor 8X, we see two vertically positioned cameras and a flash light. The fingerprint reader, which is embedded inward, is also located on the back of the phone. The Honor brand, which is already very stable in terms of fingerprint security, did not upset the users with 8X. Both the face recognition and the fingerprint reader help you when you open the phone, and they work stably.
Honor 8X uses the The Kirin 710, positioned in the middle segment, and Mali G51 as the graphics unit. Honor 8X, which offers a stable performance in games with 4 and 6 GB ram options, may require you to make graphical adjustments in very demanding games. However, we have seen that it works well in important games like PUBG in our tests. Moreover, thanks to the big screen, playing games on this phone is more fun. As I said at the beginning, the Honor 8X with a 6.5-inch display offers 2340x1080 resolution. The phone which uses IPS LCD panel, comes forefront especially in terms of battery size. With a full 3.750 mAh battery, the phone performs well even when used for a long time. The Honor 8X is very comfortable for a day of normal use, and even when I've played games for a few hours and I’ve spent time on social media, I was able to give a passing note to Honor 8X with about 20% battery life a night.
One of the most ambitious feautre of Honor 8X is the camera. The company focused on performance in some models already, in this model, company kept the performance at a normal level and gave weight to the camera side. Both front and rear cameras of Honor 8X have very good quality. Of course, it is impossible to compete with the leaders of camera section, but it is able to do its part in bokeh-like effects, sharpness and depth of field. The selfie camera uses a 16 MP camera and there is a camera with 20+2 MP is on the back.
The Honor 8X is extremely comfortable with its UEMI interface. Moreover, I can say that it is more enjoyable to use this phone with some features specially developed for the phone. For example, with party mode, you can have the same song playing on a few phones to get a lot more sound. There are many new features like this one, little but effective.
In short, the Honor 8X does its part in terms of camera and performance. So if you're looking for a mid-range phone and want to have a good quality camera, Honor 8X will be enough for you. But if you're also interested in performance, you can also choose a more ambitious model like Honor Play by raising the your budget a bit.
