Two years after independence, the HONOR brand continues to challenge the smartphone benchmark with a range of innovative and high-performance products. This strategy has already been successful. According to analytics company Counterpoint, the manufacturer is indeed in second place in the Chinese market with a market share of just over 20%. In France, the brand has entered into agreements with major carriers and distributors to offer its products, from smartphones to accessories.
Durable and exquisite design
Among the elegant – Honor X8. This smartphone, which is priced below 260 euros, has both technological and aesthetic advantages. All about lightness and refinement, it has a body that is only 7.45mm thick with flat edges and rounded corners. This allows you to guarantee excellent comfort of use. The screen-to-body ratio does reach a high 93.6%. In other words, content can take up the entire surface of the 6.7-inch (15.24 cm) LCD screen.
Many elements contribute to smooth browsing. The screen panel is TÜV Rheinland certified for low blue light emission. A resolution of 2388 x 1080 pixels (Full HD+) ensures that every detail of the image is displayed at a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz. The low weight (177 g) also gives it great maneuverability in handling. Pleasant to handle for watching videos or playing games, it is also suitable for reading. Thus, at the peak of the latest technological features, the smartphone has an e-reader mode that enhances visual comfort.
Multifaceted photographic experience
The manufacturer has also focused on photography. A distinctive feature of the Honor X8 is the quad camera located on the back of the device. The kit consists of a 64MP main sensor (f/1.8), a 5MP ultra-wide angle with a 120° field of view (f/2.2), a 2MP macro (f/2.4) sensor, and a 2MP depth-of-field sensor ( f/2.4). On the front of the terminal is a selfie camera with a resolution of 16 megapixels.
This abundance of lenses offers a wide range of possible shots: portrait mode, panorama, time lapse, super macro, night shot… You can unleash your creativity and capture anything from a baby’s first smile to a moonlit night.
To improve the performance of the terminal, Honor did not skimp on funds. First of all, he chose the market benchmark for mobile SoC (System on a Chip): 6nm engraved Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor, which is supported by 6GB RAM and 128GB large storage. A new technology that significantly increases the power of a smartphone: the Turbo option allows you to transfer part of the flash memory to random access memory (RAM). In particular, 2 GB of RAM can be upgraded to 8 GB depending on the user’s needs. This function finds its full value, for example, during game phases.
Finally, the manufacturer has taken care to provide the device with greater autonomy. Honor X8’s 4000mAh battery is compatible with Honor 22.5W SuperCharge. You can use your mobile phone as you wish throughout the day without running out of power. Its battery life is rated at 13 hours of video playback and 19 hours on the Internet. If by chance your needs are exponential, just charge it for ten minutes to enjoy 3 hours of video playback. The speed is made possible by the Honor SuperCharge 22.5W.
However, if you were in any doubt, the terminal was originally designed for Android 11 and gives you access to Google services and Play Store apps. All you have to do is choose the color that best suits your universe. Titanium Silver brings a mystical and introspective beauty, Ocean Blue transports you to the depths of the ocean illuminated by a beam of light, Midnight Black offers a deep, calm and pure landscape.
