In the era of fast charging, this device provides the 5V/2A charging brick which isn’t the best solution however the company claims that the smartphone is optimized is a way that it will be fast charged. Following the trend, the phone doesn’t come up with the pair of earphones like one plus or mi however headphone jack is included if you want to use your existing or any another earphone.
If we talk about Honor 7X, the device was launched with notch less display and Aluminium body. The Honor 8X is developed with the new approach. The premium glass sandwich design, metal support layer and 2.5D curved glassed on both sides add to the looks of the phone. The shimmery back appearance is the result of fifteen layers of aurora glass body which refracts the light and color.
The smartphone companies have adopted the notch feature and Honor 8X has done a great job in this. The notch feature is available inexpensive smartphones and Honor 8X provides you the same in this very mid-range. The front camera, sensor, earphones are all wrapped under notch. The sim slot is on the left side and power button is on the right side.
The Honor 8X has octa-core Kirin 710 chipset which outperforms the Snapdragon 660 in heavy CPU tasks. The device features a dual camera with 20 MP primary camera and 16 MP secondary camera. The camera includes dedicated portrait mode, night mode, and aperture mode. This night mode allows camera fond users to adjust the settings to click the pictures in low lights and aperture mode allows setting the aperture. The camera performs well in both low lighting and good lighting conditions. The device is capable of capturing 1080 Pixel videos however, the video streaming is not that much clear. Honor 8X has a good battery life and it can stand a day without any issue.
Though the camera quality is average and fast charging is not available, the device is a good buy in this budget. The device is offering great specifications and number of exciting features which definitely deserves your consideration while planning to buy a phone. If you do not have a high budget and you are looking for a device with latest specifications, I would suggest going for it.
