Reviews for the Honor X8

78.5% Honor X8评测 - 经济实惠的中档智能手机,配备64MP摄像头 | Notebookcheck
Honor X8以一个大的液晶屏幕、大量的存储空间和一个以高分辨率64MP传感器为核心的四摄像头来展现自己。然而,我们在测试中也注意到了一些小的隐患。我们将找出它们是什么,以及X8是否仍然值得购买。
Honor X8 5G Battery test
Source: DxOMark English EN→zh-CN
The Honor X8 5G battery provided outstanding autonomy when tested in factory default mode. The device maintained a charge for more than 3 full days during the typical usage scenario (TUS), one of the best performances we’ve seen so far. We had the same excellent experience during the on-the-go tests, especially when scrolling on social apps. In calibrated mode, the device showed decent performance across all our use cases as well.

HONOR X7, X8, X9 Review Philippines: Full Force
Source: Unbox English EN→zh-CN
While puzzling at first, it’s clear that the X7, X8, and X9 are meant to cater to different markets as part of HONOR’s strategy in its return to the Philippines. The X7 is the most affordable of the three and is made for those who prioritize battery life and are a fan of HONOR’s older phone designs. The X8 is geared towards those who want a slim phone that offers a large display thanks to its razor-thin bezels, while the X9 is made to be an affordable version of the Magic4 Pro flagship by offering a number of high-end features and having a very good camera performance when compared against the competition. Having a good set of features for their price, we do hope that HONOR stays true to its commitment with software upgrades and updates the X7, X8, and X9 to Android 12–or maybe get them upgraded to HONOR’s upcoming MagicOS 7.0 in the near future.

60% Honor X8 review: Slim pickings
Source: Expert Reviews English EN→zh-CN
The Honor X8 is a merely adequate affordable phone. It deserves credit for pursuing a slightly different course to some of its £200 rivals, most notably with its super-skinny design and minimal bezels. But neither its performance nor its camera system are any great shakes, and the choice of using a smaller battery in order to hit that slinky form factor means that intensive use brings the X8 short compared to the competition.

80% Honor X8 Review: Another Solid Showing
Source: Htxt Africa English EN→zh-CN
In an increasingly competitive mid-range phone space, the Honor X8 is well appointed, serving up solid performance in terms of app multitasking, battery life, display visuals and the camera array. If we were to critique it, it would be to say that it does not do enough to stand out from that aforementioned crowded space, which is something that 5G support could have done. That said, if we are comparing the Honor X8 to some of the similarly specced and priced Huawei devices on the market, the support for Google gives it a distinct edge. Add 5G to the mix for future phones and Honor could start to make some real inroads. Provided 5G is not a element in your buying decision, the Honor X8 is a great looking phone that is well priced and performs as expected. The Honor X8 has debuted in SA at a time when there are more great mid-range phones on the market than ever before. Luckily it is fitted with a solid display, battery and camera, as well as an eye catching design. The only element missing to help it stand out is support for 5G.

Honor X8 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
The phone offers a decent chipset and battery but the rest other specs seem to add up numbers. The display, camera, and storage could have been better. This smartphone underperforms in most ways and doesn’t offer a good deal in this price segment. Furthermore, the other things like fast charging and software are just average and nothing unique or new in that. Though the overall phone is okay there are a lot of better alternatives available such as the Realme 9 Pro smartphone in the same price range. You can check the Realme 9 Pro, as it comes with a better battery, screen, and 5g support, but the final decision depends on you.
