About Huawei Honor 8X - Review, Specs + more

If you do not want to spend a lot of money on a smartphone, you're looking at perhaps the perfect phone for you - the Honor 8X. Created by Honor, which is actually a subsidiary of Huawei, it's available in the UK on pay monthly contract right now. But should you opt for this, or one of it's bigger more powerful brothers from Honor/Huawei? Let's find out...

Bigger display - but the same size?

In contrast to its nearly equal predecessor the 8S, the Honor 8X makes better use of its size. So the display could grow to 6.5 inches. There is also a material change, so to speak - only the frame is made of metal now.

Huawei have decided to make the rear side out of glass (strengthened) so this inevitably means lots of fingerprints, but classy looks. The side buttons and the fingerprint scanner are easily accessible and made a big impression on our reviewer.

There is no IP certification here, even though Huawei claim the phone is waterproof to an extent, it would have been nice to get that tested in the lab to be sure.

More power and more megapixels

In terms of performance, the new Kirin 710 CPU offers 20% greater performance than its predecessor. Not only for everyday tasks, but also for games, such as PUBG Mobile, the processor is well suited, as per this review.

Honor 8X Display

The display is high-resolution and offers a perfect coluor representation for the price, although it would be wrong to compare this richness an depth to higher end models like the P30 Pro as they are about 3x the price. So in terms of testing this we are only going on other phones within the budget sector, for fairness.

And just to continue with that point, as far as the brightness is concerned, the reviews are not in agreement here so it's worth testing it out for yourself first if unsure. Some reviews say that there is not enough brightness when exposed to sunlight, while others describe the value of the screen at  469 candelas/ m² as above average.

With a 91.6% sRGB gamut coverage and a contrast ratio of 1273:1, the phone’s display is vivid, full of colour, and thanks to the use of an IPS panel, there’s no visible colour shift when viewing the phone at extreme angles. At a peak brightness of 400cd/m², this isn't the most blinding smartphone display around, though, which means you may struggle to read your emails on particularly sunny days.

Neither is it the most colour accurate display; with an average Delta E of 4.17 and a maximum of 12.62, it's less accurate than the Moto G6 Play, which achieves an average Delta E of 2.4 and a maximum of 6.82. Neither display is perfect, but they're both acceptable.

About the Cameras

The two cameras have been improved, too. They offer more megapixels and a depth sensor that allows photos with bokeh effect - often only seen in higher-end phones. Again the Honor brand brings things from the upper reaches of the market down into their lower-end phones, and why not?

The photos from the cameras are sharp in daylight, but in low light, the quality decreases noticeably.

Honor 8X Battery

The battery capacity has also grown. It is now 3750 mAh which means it'll go and go, indeed some testers found that it lasted more than a day with even medium-level usage! Great news but this is clouded by the slow charging time. There is no fast charge system here sadly.

What alternatives are there?

It’s also worth considering the impressive Honor Play, which has a slightly smaller display, an even faster and more capable Kirin 970 processor and a similar camera configuration to the 8X. It is, however, more expensive.

Away from Honor, its chief competitor Motorola has a number of attractive handsets. The Moto G6 Play and the G7 Play offers incredible value for money, particularly with their camera performance, which punch well above their low prices. These, however, don’t have the large 6.5in display; instead you have a 720p and 1080p 5.7in display, respectively.

Is SIM Only better for Honor 8X?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Huawei Honor 8X, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Huawei Honor 8X ee contract or a Huawei Honor 8X Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Huawei Honor 8X contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 322 Huawei Honor 8X deals, our cheapest Huawei Honor 8X deal over the entire life of the contract is £480.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Huawei Honor 8X SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Huawei Honor 8X handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Huawei Honor 8X Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Huawei Honor 8X phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
