The Honor X8 5G, as the name suggests, is the 5G-ready version of the budget X8 smartphone that features a simple and sleek plastic body with flat panels and sides. The edges have been curved to make it easier to hold and give a little cushion should the smartphone fall from your hands. The rear panel gets a nice glossy gradient that looks nice in all colours, although the finish of the panel is bound to attract fingerprints after long hours of use. On the inside, you get much of the same setup as the other device but with a newer processor that enables 5G connectivity at such an affordable price point.
Honor X8 5G is a nice upgrade to the regular X8 smartphone, which brings 5G connectivity at a very affordable price. You also get a pair to triple cameras in the rear, although only the main sensor is of any use. The battery is large enough for a full day of use, but the charging is very basic.
