Review of the brilliant Honor 8X, possibly the best looking budget smartphone in 2018, with iPhone XS Max-style design. I’ve been using the Honor 8X as my full-time mobile for over a week and here’s my full thoughts on the camera tech, EMUI 8 software, battery life, performance and everything else.
Here in the UK we’re expecting the Honor 8X to cost between £200 and £250 – a great price for a solid budget phone. As well as iPhone XS Max looks, you get a crisp 6.5-inch Full HD+ display, strong features including face recognition and impressive battery life. The Honor 8X’s dual-lens camera also boasts strong smarts, such as a brilliant night mode.
Right now, it’s looking like the Honor 8X could lay claim to best budget mobile of 2018. Of course, if you’re after a bit more grunt there’s always the Honor Play, which also supports GPU Turbo and boosts the power levels with a Kirin 970 chipset.
