Where to find the Honor X8 at the best price?
A premium design that focuses on finesse
The first thing that strikes when looking at the Honor X8 is its design. Extremely thin, with just under 7.45 mm thick to 177 grams on the scale, it offers straight and clear lines with great sobriety that would not clash with a more exclusive model. Its shell is made of plastic, with a touch very close to glass, and its metal edges. It is a solid device, made to last.
The Honor X8 especially stands out with a very compact square photo block, which protrudes very little from the back of the device. On the front is a screen with rounded edges that occupy most of the front thanks to very thin edges. The bottom edge also hides a connector for connecting wired headphones. The fingerprint sensor is present on the power button of the phone.
A beautiful silhouette that comes in three colors: Midnight Black, Titanium Silver and Ocean Blue.
Snapdragon 680 and fast charging: a technical magazine that ensures
To equip its Honor X8 and ensure solid performance in any case, Honor has opted for a safe game: the Snapdragon 680 chip. Complemented with 6 GB RAM and a generous storage space of 128 GB, this SoC works wonders in daily use, i.a. for video games, provided you do not start greedy 3D games.
On the screen side, Honor has chosen a large 6.7-inch LCD panel with a definition of 2388 by 1080 pixels (Full HD +) and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Screen performance that is still relatively rare in this smartphone price range. Not only is the fluidity there, but the definition is also excellent.
To ensure the device’s autonomy, the Honor X8 has a 4000 mAh battery that is compatible with the Honor 22.5 W SuperCharge (the charger is included in the phone box). Enough to let it last over time and to accompany you without worries all day.
A photo block enhanced by a 64 megapixel sensor
Among the strengths of this new Honor X8 is undeniably its photo block. Composed of a quadruple sensor, it stands out with a main lens that tops at 64 megapixels and opens at f / 1.8. A secondary 5 megapixel lens aperture at f / 2.2, a depth sensor aperture at f / 2.4 and a macrosensor aperture of f / 2.4 complete the set.
This wide range of sensors allows it to take advantage of many shooting modes: night photography, portrait mode (with embellishment), panorama, timelapse, super-macro and more that are on the agenda. Honor X8 also handles video and can record 1080p movies without pinching.
