Honor X8 Review

Incredible RAM Expansion Capabilities And A Super Lightweight Design

The much-awaited device from Honor, the X8, has finally been released, and we were quick to get our hands on it to give you a detailed review. The smartphone lays a strong emphasis on style and is also extremely quick to deliver responsive performance thanks to its unique RAM turbo capabilities.

Honor-X8

Design

The HONOR X8 has an ultra-slim and lightweight build, measuring 7.45mm thick and weighing just 177 grams. The HONOR X8 has a flat-edge design and rounded corners on all four sides so that it fits comfortably in the palm of one's hand and slides easily into small handbags and pockets. The new and unique high-strength yet lightweight aluminium alloy mid-frame bezel plate developed by HONOR reduces the mid-frame bezel plate's weight by 4g while also being 15% thinner than conventional smartphone frames. The middle frame bracket's material ensures its longevity, safeguarding it against falling and bending. The HONOR X8 also includes a side-mounted fingerprint reader, which provides for an easy unlock method. We could unlock the HONOR X8 in less than a second.

Features

With a Full High-Definition resolution of 2388x1080 pixels, 16.7 million colours, and enhanced clarity, the HONOR X8 has a 6.7-inch HONOR Full View ultra-thin LCD that delivers a life-like viewing experience for streaming movies, browsing the internet or gaming.

HONOR is the first in the business to use ultra-thin LCD technology. The 1.1mm ultra-thin LCD with tempered glass ensures stronger screen strength while also reducing the weight of the smartphone as a whole. The HONOR X8 offers high-resolution visuals for more realistic effects. The device has a response time of 1ms and is capable of delivering images with a refresh rate of up to 90Hz, ensuring that users can enjoy greater picture quality.

The Honor X8 is available in three colours: Midnight Black, Titanium Silver, and Ocean Blue.

Camera

The HONOR X8's main camera has a resolution of 64MP, with an f/1.8 aperture and an intelligent multi-frame synthesis algorithm that enables clearer pictures at a distance as well as super clear pictures with impressive clarity at night and in low-light situations.

There's also a 5MP Wide Angle Camera with a 120-degree wide-angle view and an f/2.2 aperture, allowing for wider pictures to be taken. Furthermore, there's a 2MP macro camera as well as a 2MP bokeh camera with an f/2.4 aperture to complete the impressive camera setup. The HONOR X8 also has a 16MP Front Camera with an f/2.45 aperture and 4608*3456 image resolution.

Performance

The HONOR X8 is powered by Qualcomm’s robust Snapdragon 680 Mobile Platform through a 6nm advanced processor that has been designed to deliver unmatched performance while also conserving power in the process. We can confirm from our experience that the device has been purpose-built for extended multimedia play and designed to deliver optimized gaming experiences and seamless streaming capabilities. What makes the Honor X8 really special, however, is its RAM optimization. The HONOR X8 has a high-performance memory system, with HONOR RAM Turbo (6GB+2GB), an HONOR technology that transfers a portion of flash memory to RAM, allowing for the expansion of 6GB RAM to 8GB RAM. How cool is that!

With HONOR RAM Turbo, the operating system prioritizes critical and heavy-duty applications like gaming or video and image sharing apps, allowing users to access their favourite apps more quickly while also letting them use the device to its full capacity. The actual performance of 2GB virtual RAM reaches 6GB, aided by HONOR's custom-developed compressing technology, according to our test results. This unique technique compresses apps in the background and enables the HONOR X8 to launch more applications while still maintaining performance. So, when you switch between apps in their current condition, there's no need to reload them. In theory, this implies that the Honor X8 can become a smartphone with 12GB of RAM in its current form.

Battery

With a big 4,000 mAh battery and a 12% reduction in power and usage compared to the previous generation, we were actually able to use the device for a full day without needing to charge it in between. The 22.5W Honor Wired SuperCharge can fuel the device for up to three hours of video playback in just 10 minutes of charging.

Verdict

The HONOR X8 is an excellent mid-range smartphone. It has a fantastic user experience and an excellent design. From its look to its sturdy functionality and pleasant user interface, HONOR's dependable X Series lineup delivers cutting-edge features at a reasonable price of AED 899.
