60% Honor Pad X8 review: budget tablet with a sharp screen, low price, middling specs
Source: Creative Bloq English
Something that costs less than £200 will always come with tempered expectations. For its purpose - light computing tasks and the consumption of streaming media - you get something capable and easy to use, though it can’t be pushed too far by 3D games. The Honor Pad X8 makes a very good general-purpose, go-anywhere tablet, with a long battery life if you’re taking it on the road. Its main selling points are its slim and sleek appearance and low price. A 10in screen is fine for reading articles or books, and the IPS panel in the Pad X8 is decent for watching movies if you’ve got no alternative. There's not a lot of onboard storage though, unless you add a large Micro SD card, so you’ll need an internet connection to stream from.

HONOR Pad X8 review - A perfectly normal Android tablet
Source: Tech Nave English
So... that's pretty much it. Overall, the HONOR Pad X8 is a rather basic tablet for the entry-level market. Since it's meant for that purpose, I find the tablet just fine if that's what you're looking for especially if you need it to last longer and have its own 4G LTE connection. While the 10.1-inch display is full HD (something you don't see often in entry-level tablets) the fact that it's an LCD with low brightness does not take advantage of this. However, if you own an HONOR smartphone, you could take advantage of the ecosystem and use HONOR Share to transfer files seamlessly. The price tag of RM899 seems reasonable although some people would argue that you might as well get a budget smartphone since it's more compact. For other contenders, it kind of falls flat to the Redmi Pad which features much better tech specs (90Hz 10.6-inch display, Helio G99 chipset, and 8000mAh battery with 18W fast charging) for the same price. On the other hand, the Nokia T20 also has a much bigger battery at 8200mAh with 15W fast charging but is priced at RM1099. However, only the X8 and T20 have 4G LTE connectivity built in. Either way, if you need such a tablet, you are welcome to get this one.

HONOR Pad X9 Review

64% Honor Pad X9 review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Pad X9 is missing a microSD slot, which you'd find on several of its competitors. The average battery life and lack of cellular connectivity are easier to swallow on a device that's probably too big to leave the house often, while the chipset's lack of serious oomph doesn't hinder the tablet's use for less demanding applications. At the time of writing this review, we are seeing some very competitive pricing for the Honor Pad X9. It seems to be going for just under €200 in Europe. The UK pricing is GBP 180 and even as low as GBP 150 on some listings. We also saw a Saudi Arabia listing for SAR 626. These are some very competitive numbers. Still, it might be worth looking at some alternatives as well, like the Xiaomi Redmi Pad, the OnePlus Pad Go or the Realme Pad 2 all of which have larger batteries and expandable storage.

80% Honor Pad X9 Review: A Brilliant Budget Tablet
Source: Make Use Of English
If you are looking for a capable Android slate that won't break the bank, then the Honor Pad X9 is a worthy contender for your money. It performs exceptionally well for a device that costs under £175/$200. The large screen is great for viewing media, and the portable nature of a tablet means the X9 offers a great degree of convenience when traveling. The X9 was my wingman during my recent trip to IFA in Berlin, standing in for my laptop as I walked the show floor of the Berlin Messe. The fact I only needed to carry this and not my laptop was a godsend. With everything I needed at my fingertips, the Honor X9 proved to be a brilliant tablet for multiple use cases, and you can't complain about that. The Honor Pad X9 is the latest in the brands line of budget slates.

Honor Pad X9 review - A reasonably priced tablet that's capable and good-looking
Source: Tech Nave English
Overall, the Honor Pad X9 has a little bit of everything, which can be good if you're a student or professional looking for a flexible device. If you're looking for a tablet with a decent screen size, good performance, and a keyboard to do some work, then you can't go wrong with this one. At RM1099, it's also a good deal since you get the keyboard for free. The only thing it's not great at is gaming, plus there are some stylus that might not work on it.

Review – HONOR Pad X9: Excellent tablet on a budget
Source: NLT English
Okay then, so why did this tablet surprise me? Well, there is one thing lacking in today’s tech market – and that is the selection of budget tablets. Yeah, we really don’t have that many choices from reputable brands. We have the Galaxy Tab A8 which was not updated for a long time, whereby the newly released Xiaomi Pad 6 that we reviewed earlier – many of you voiced out disappointment for not having a SIM card slot. There is also the OPPO Pad Air that’s an actually decent tablet but is also missing a SIM card slot. And that’s why I say the HONOR Pad X9 is surprising. It targets a specific segment of users with pinpoint laser-focused accuracy and they do it really well. Good screen, good speakers, has 4G connectivity, and the price is really enticing. Good job there HONOR.

At its average asking price, the Honor Pad X9 looks great, feels great, and performs a little better than expected in its price bracket. It’s a solid general-use tablet with a fast screen that’s suitable for most applications, but its pushy first-party apps could scare off inexperienced tablet users.

Honor Pad X9 hands on: An affordable tablet with entertainment at its heart
Source: Pocket Lint English
My time with the Pad X9 was brief and limited, but it's always nice to see a new addition to the affordable tablet market - and this one is an intriguing one to say the least. Just like with its phones, Honor has managed to stuff in some serious features, specs and functionality that leave us very excited indeed to try it out properly. We'll be sure to bring you our full review as soon as we have. Like what you've seen already? It'll be available directly from Honor's website from 10th July, with Amazon and other only retailers to follow from July 19th.

Honor Pad X9 hands-on review: a big screen bargain?
Source: Stuff TV English
If you’re after the biggest screen going for under £200, the Honor Pad X9 looks hard to beat. It might not be the most potent tablet around, but it’s packing plenty of on-board storage, and the expansive display is bright, colourful and plenty sharp enough to do justice to Full HD video. Unlike the smaller, more affordable Fire HD alternatives, you aren’t tied in to Amazon’s take on Android, and there’s nothing with a Samsung or Apple badge on it that can compete on size for similar cash. The ageing Lenovo Tab P11 looks like the strongest competition; we’ll have to wait until we get one in for a full review to see whether the Honor can come out victorious.

Honor:

In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

unknown:

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ARM Mali-G52 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. ARM states that the G52 series is 30% faster and 15% more efficient compared to the G51 series on the same process node.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


:

Qualcomm Snapdragon:

SD 685: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 265 cores (four fast 2.8 GHz ARM Cortex-A73 based cores in a cluster and four power saving ARM Cortex-A53 based cores at 1.9 GHz) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in 6 nm and according to Qualcomm around 15% more CPU performance and 10% more GPU performance compared to the old SD680 (thanks to higher clock speeds).

No weight comment found (one expected)!


76.63%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
