About Huawei Honor 9X - Review, Specs + more

The Honor 9X is a smartphone from Huawei, as part of their trendy Honor sub-brand. It is running  Android 9.0 operating system with a full 6.59-inch 1080 x 2340 pixel display. The pop-up selfie camera, like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro and a couple of OnePlus models, means that the screen is one uninterrupted piece of art. And we love it, but is it worth buying on pay monthly? Let's find out...

Summary of contents

Essentials - At a Glance:

  • 6.59 inch display - notchless
  • Octa-core processor and 4 GB of RAM
  • Triple camera with optical image stabilisation

Under the bonnet: Installed in the 9X  is the Hi-Silicon Kirin 710F processor with 8 cores each, and 2 GHz clock speed. There is a fairly generous  4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. You can extend this by up to 512 GB though, thankfully, for all your photo and video needs. The Internet support is either LTE-A or ac-WLAN for Wi-Fi.

Will I be able to use Google Apps?

Yes. Future phones from this sub-brand, including its main range as well as the Honor V and Honor X series, will no longer have Google apps after 2020. The last Honor phone to be confirmed to have Google Mobile Services (GMS) is the Honor 9X, a phone which succeeds the Honor 8X. So this really is one of the last of a generation.

Honor 9X Screen & Display

Given that this is meant to be an affordable mid-range smartphone, the Honor 9X has a rather large screen. Itโ€™s a 6.6-inch display, which is a little on the large side for a smartphone, so unless you have rather big hands it may be hard for you to properly use the device.

This model does not have an NFC chip needed for contactless payment, nor fast pairing with Bluetooth devices, which is slightly baffling as some reviewers noted like TechRadar here. It does however offer dual-nano-SIM support, a headphone jack and pletny of decent camera equipment.

Honor 9X: Camera setup

So, onto the cameras. In addition to the aforementioned 16-MP front camera, these include 3 lenses on the back.The main camera resolves with 48 megapixels. There are also an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens and a sensor for the depth of field with 2 megapixels. You can record videos in Full HD with 30 fps. The advantage here is the optical image stabilisation, but we didn't really come away too impressed with the cameras. Huawei could have done better, particularly as this phone is aimed at the youth market - who highly value camera quality for selfies.

Our Verdict

Additional features of the Honor 9X include the fingerprint sensor on the back and the USB Type-C interface. The battery comes with 4,000 mAh capacity - which is about average for this price/range. There is no fast-charging function sadly.

This is a mid-level phone with mid-level options. It's not going to be blowing anyone away with its specs, but it isn't really meant to. The Honor 9X is a fine phone for its price range, and while it won't impress too many people with its performance, cameras or display, it still works perfectly well as your day-to-day smartphone.

Other similar phones to consider:

  1. Honor Play
  2. Galaxy A20e
  3. Xiaomi Pocophone F1

How much does Honor 9X cost in UK?

Right now, you can buy the Honor 9X for ยฃ250 in the UK, or about ยฃ18 a month on contract with Tesco Mobile. This is a mid-range smartphone with a decent price, and we expect the price to fall further after a few months by which point it'll be a steal.

Honor 9X: What's the cheapest monthly deal?

Honor 9X deals: How long does delivery take?

If your device is in stock with the retailer, then most orders will be shipped by them within 24 hours so you could have your phone tomorrow morning. If it's a pre-order then we will let you know the approximate delivery date

Is SIM Only better for Honor 9X?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Huawei Honor 9X, 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 9X ee contract or a Huawei Honor 9X 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 9X 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 828 Huawei Honor 9X deals, our cheapest Huawei Honor 9X deal over the entire life of the contract is £407.76, 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 9X 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 9X handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Huawei Honor 9X 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 9X phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
