Editor Rating

Honor X40 is a relatively affordable mid-range smartphone which packs in lots of reliable and powerful components, such as a Snapdragon 695 processor, up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS storage. It is powered by a large 5100mAh battery, which supports up to 40W wired charging. You even get a 120Hz AMOLED display to enjoy all sorts of high-quality content and fast-paced mobile games. The package is rounded off with a dual camera array, which offers decent performance in good lighting conditions. The only thing missing is wireless charging, which would have been a great convenience feature.


Bottom Line

Honor X40 is a great mid-range smartphone which brings lots of reliable and useful components to the mix, including the display, processor, and battery backup. The only place that you fumble is the camera setup, which performs decently in good lighting conditions, but struggles in low-light settings.
