Editor Rating

Honor X8 is a decent entry-level smartphone, which features a slim and understated aesthetic that makes it feel a lot more premium than its asking price. You get a plain plastic back that features unique colour and gradient options that shimmer and reflect unique patterns under direct sunlight. The frame is made from plastic as well, with the front featuring a simple glass covering. There is no Gorilla Glass protection, but the phone does offer dust and water resistance. You also get a reliable Snapdragon processor, which is enhanced with up to 6GB of physical RAM and another 2GB of virtual memory through the RAM Turbo technology.


Bottom Line

The Honor X8 is a great entry-level smartphone that features a lot of usable software features and hardware advantages at such an affordable price point, but it would have made for a more rounded package if they had included a larger battery to handle the workload. Read Full Review of Honor X8
