Honor 8X: Pros & Cons

out of 10
MSP Score
The Honor 8X offers a large and vibrant display. Its performance is also great considering its low price. The battery easily offers a full day's worth of use. Furthermore, you get a triple card slot capable of holding two SIM cards and a microSD card simultaneously. All this is to be had in a premium-looking package.
Both the front and rear cameras tend to struggle in low-light while producing oversaturated an artificial looking images in ideal lighting. Charging is still handled over a micro USB port. Honor's RAM management system tends to close background apps a bit aggressively.
The Honor 8X is an excellent offering from the Huawei sub-brand as it offers a well-rounded package at an affordable price. It has decent aesthetics and a solid performance to match. The UI might be on the heavy side, but it still comes with tonnes of customization options. You get dual SIM card support alongside a dedicated slot of a microSD card slot. The battery is large enough to last an entire day. However, the cameras should have been better, and it's about time for Honor to be moving over to USB Type-C charging ports.

Honor 8X Details

Introduction and Performance
The Huawei Honor 8X is a mid-range smartphone which ships with dual rear cameras, a notch, and a big battery. It is the successor to the Honor 7X which came out back in 2017. The 8X offers a premium outer shell that sports a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Its curved edges on all sides make it easy to hold. In terms of performance, Huawei's in-house manufactured Kirin 710 chipset ensures smooth and seamless sailing. The SoC is clocked at 1.8GHz and is bundled with 4GB of RAM to aid lag-free multitasking. 
Camera and Storage
For imaging and shooting videos, the Huawei Honor 8X hosts dual 16+2-megapixel primary shooters and an 8-megapixel front-facing lens. The front imaging unit is ideal for selfies and video calling, while the rear sensors can help in portrait shots with hardware-captured bokeh effect. Storing images, videos, apps, and other data should not be an issue as the handset packs 64GB of internal storage space which you can further expand using a microSD card up to 256GB. 
Platform and Display
The Huawei Honor 8X is based on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box and features a big 7.12-inch Full HD+ display. The screen on the smartphone sports a notch which houses the front imaging sensor. The display is also protected from normal day-to-day wear and tear by Corning's Gorilla Glass. 
Battery and Connectivity
The Huawei Honor 8X is loaded with various connectivity options which include 4G with VoLTE support, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, and a USB Type-C port. Also, you get dual SIM support. One of the appealing features of the smartphone is its big battery. The smartphone is fuelled by a large 4,900mAh battery which is touted to last for more than a day even under heavy usage. The device ships with a 10W charger which should top up the battery at a faster pace.
