Honor X9b Review: Should You Buy in 10 Points

Keval Vachharajani

Its lightweight and slim profile (7.98mm) with rounded edges gives it a comfortable grip. It comes in two colour options in India: Sunrise Orange and Midnight Black. 


It delivers vibrant colours and excellent visibility even under direct sunlight. The company claims it has an ultra-durable screen that does not crack easily. 


The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC handles everyday tasks like browsing, social media, and video streaming easily. But, when it comes to demanding things like games or editing a short video, you might encounter occasional lags and stutters.


The Honor X9b runs Android 13 with Honor’s Magic UI on top. The skin opens up a lot of possibilities for customisation. However, we encountered a few bloatware apps, which can be uninstalled if not needed. 


The Honor X9b features a 108MP main camera, a 5MP ultrawide lens, and a 2MP macro lens. Despite the high megapixel count, the camera performance is just average.


The massive battery is a powerhouse. During our tests, it consistently delivered a full day and a half of usage on a single charge, with an impressive 8.5 hours of screen-on-time under moderate use.


If you’re a casual user who prefers a stunning and durable display, sleek design, and exceptional battery life, then the X9b is worth considering.
