Reviews for the Honor Pad X9

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.

80% Honor Pad X9 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
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.

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.

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

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

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).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.

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).

79.5%: 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.
