The HONOR X8b, while a midrange device, boasts an aesthetically pleasing design enhanced by features like the Magic Capsule, a great AMOLED display, and a decent camera system—proving that sophistication and quality aren’t always tied to a hefty price tag.

HONOR X8b Review
Source: Yugatech English
Now to conclude this review, to be fair, the HONOR x8b is a decent contender on the mid-range segment of smartphones, given a consumer really knows what they want and need. If you are one of those people who are seeking a smartphone that can provide good performance– even though its a bit dated kind of chipset, average battery life, and a good display within a midrange budget, this can be a good choice. But if you are looking for a smartphone with a great set of cameras, skip the HONOR x8b or you might get a little underwhelmed. For pricing, the Honor X8b is priced at PHP 12,999 and if you sign up for pre-order, you will get a free HONOR Choice X5 earbuds worth PHP 1,590. Hurry because this pre-order promo is only until February 23, 2024.

Honor X8b Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Honor X8b possesses a unique set of specs and features that make it stand out among other smartphones in the same price range. The pros of the smartphone include its superior display, attractive design, cameras, and battery. However, there are a few cons as well, such as the lack of 5G connectivity and a good secondary camera. The lack of 5G is also a dealbreaker for many, especially in 2024. Its chipset could have also been better. The Honor X8b’s chipset has more than decent performance for sure, but there are other smartphones in the market that have better chipsets in the same price range. If you want a good-looking smartphone where you can watch a lot of movies or TV series or do some social media activities, then this smartphone is for you. That’s because it has a great display and a fantastic battery backup, which will surely help in those cases. But if you are a gamer, then you need 5G connectivity for lower latency and need better chipset. In this case, other smartphones could be better in this regard.

HONOR X8b review - Great looking phone with decent performance
Source: Tech Nave English
Overall, the HONOR X8b is a pretty decent phone for RM1000. The sleek plain leather back cover design is indeed one of the highlights and is usually only available on flagships. While granted its tech specs are just mid-range, that's what you're supposed to get in this price range. At least the display features are pretty good for video streaming, and the camera does a decent job. It's also enough to do your normal social media stuff. The HONOR X8b is in the same price range as the OPPO A79 (RM1199) and realme 10 (RM899). While the former has a 5000mAh battery with a faster 67W fast charging, the latter is equipped with a Helio G99 chipset and the same 90Hz Super AMOLED display. Each phone has its unique operating system, so we guess it's up to you which one you prefer.

Comment

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 680: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 265 cores (four fast 2.4 GHz ARM Cortex-A73 based cores in a cluster and four power saving ARM Cortex-A53 based cores at 1.8 GHz) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in 6 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.70":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

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).


71.75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
