Honor 9X Design
The Honor 9X has an aluminum frame. At this price point, the brand is offering an impressive polycarbonate back and glass front. The device doesn’t look cheap at all. The feel on the device is surely going to be very near to glass. The back of the device is a fingerprint magnet. The device captures a lot of smudges on the rear.
Coming to the design of Honor 9X, the dazzling X design looks very fresh. It has some 3-D geometric visualization on its back. The aesthetics of the device is undoubtedly great. There are two available colors for the device – Midnight Black and Saphire Blue. Although the Blue has more gradient finish than black but black looks more premium than blue.
Honor 9X Display
On moving to the display of the device, it has a quite good display in the segment. The display is a 6.59-inches HONOR FullView Display. The display panel is an LTPS IPS LCD touchscreen. The resolution of the device is 2340 x 1080 pixels (FHD) which is congenial in this pay tag.
Then comes the most impressive part of the device, display. The device has an all-screen display with no cameras to disturb the integrity of the screen and thin bezels. There is a pop-up camera system on this device.
There is the availability of an awesome 91% screen-to-body ratio. The display is quite crisp and will provide a very good cinematic experience. the blue-light filtering is amazing in the device, so proper eye care for the users.
Honor 9X Performance
Chipset – The device is powered by Kirin 710F Chipset. This is based on 12nm technology which is not blazing fast, but fast enough to match current standards. This octa-core CPU has the configuration as 4 Cortex-A73 cores clocked @2.2 GHz & 4 Cortex-A53 based cores clocked @1.7 GHz.
There is a pretty well-balanced environment that can be seen from this configuration. The SoC will be enough powerful and power-efficient.
The SoC is coupled with the Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. However, in terms of graphics, the system is underpowered a bit. There is the experience of a few lower output in heavy games like Call of Duty: Mobile and PUBG Mobile. The games are reported to turn a bit choppy on high settings. At this very price point, the expected substantial performance is not provided.
Memory – Moving to the memory unit, the device has a few options to choose from. The device comes in 4GB/6GB of RAM. The RAM is to be considered a good one. The Honour 9X comes with 128GB internal storage. The impressive part is its expandable storage, which is up to 256 GB via miscoSD. The storage is based on UFS2.1.
Other Aspects – The device runs on Android 9 Pie. However, it has its custom UI named EMUI 9.1. This UI is undoubtedly very stable and will be seamlessly working with the hardware. It has almost all the necessary sensors.
Honor 9X Camera
The camera on the device is a plus point to consider. Let’s know how.
Front – The device comes with a Motorized pop-up 16 MP, with an aperture of f/2.2. it is a wide-angle lens. The selfies are standing against the competition for sure. The video on the front camera works at 1080p at 60fps which is fair enough. It also has 3D Portrait Lighting for amazing portraits.
Rear – The rear camera has the triple-camera system. The main camera is a 48 MP (f/1.8 Aperture) wide-angle lens, then comes 8 MP,(f/2.4 aperture) ultra-wide-angle camera and lastly it has a 2 MP (f/2.4) depth-sensing camera.
There is no OIS support mentioned by the bran. There is the availability of 120° of the field of vision which is very impressive. The output on the camera is substantially amazing.
Honor 9X Battery
On moving to the battery section there is a major backslash seen on it. The battery is a 4000 mAh battery pack which can easily deliver all-day power backup. The downgrade is the charging. The device is restricted to 10W of charging only. The charging is a downscale identification for the device.
Honor 9X Price
The device is priced at as follows:
4GB + 128GB = $185
6GB + 128GB = $225
The final impressions of the device are very straightforward. The device is not something one should expect to go in 2020. The major backslashes like charging and lack of Corning Gorilla Glass are some vital considerations.
Then on moving to some bright sides then, the device has an all-screen display and an impressive enough camera. The camera produces good images and color production is very amazing. On the final note, this device is not recommended for users in today’s market as there are far better options available at this price point.
