About the Phone
Honor 8X Max will not surprise you with its signature Honor design. A few pros and cons of this phone are:
- The phone comes with a gradient design, which makes it look premium.
- It has a headphone jack.
- The Honor 8X Max comes with a large display and a fantastic resolution designed to give you an immersive experience.
- The performance of the phone is decent enough for the price. It is capable of handling multiple apps along with several games.
- The main feature of this phone is a powerful battery. It can chug the phone for two days without much problem.
- The Honor 8X Max continued with the old micro USB port and not the new USB Type-C port.
- The cameras on this phone are poor and produce grainy images.
The Honor 8X Max maxes out on its battery but does keep its other aspects low. It has a rather mediocre camera, but that can be expected at this price. All in all, it is a beautiful model for anyone looking for a well-rounded device. However, it is not an all-rounder in its exact meaning.
The Honor 8X Max is not a striking looker despite being handsome. Priced at Rs. 15,790, the phone, however, keeps itself able in most of the aspects of the phone.
The Honor 8X Max maxes the battery and arrives with a capable processor. It is an accomplished phone which keeps its own among its competitors.
Honor 8X Max does not change the design philosophy of Huawei. It comes with an aluminium alloy frame along with a composite board material. On the rear end, the phone looks almost similar to the Huawei Honor 10 due to the special colour gradient. The fingerprint scanner is placed at the back panel too. Despite being a large phone, it can fit in hand and is quite manageable as well. However, due to the large display, the phone may appear unnatural at first.
The curves make it easier to handle with one hand without feeling it dig inside your palms. The phone comes with an old micro USB port along with the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack for traditionalists.
Honor 8X Max comes with a 7.12-inch large display with a whopping 2244 x 1080 resolution. The large screen almost looks like a pad when compared with the Huawei Honor 10. It has a screen-to-body ratio of 90.05%, which is excellent, considering the price at which the phone arrives. The colours are quite punchy, and the brightness is adequate. Even outdoors, the phone remains legible. The phone has minimal bezels and a small notch, and therefore, it banks on the immersive viewing experience that it offers.
The Honor 8X Max comes with a Snapdragon 636 paired with a 4 GB RAM. The chipset is adequate to provide enough power for the phone to keep performing daily tasks with ease. It has enough potential to handle the dual camera on its back as well as the selfie camera on the front. The 636 is a mid-range processor, so it is quite capable of multitasking with several essential tasks. Playing casual games is also a smooth process for this phone, although high-end games may not run properly. The smoothness of performance can also be attributed to the EMUI 8.2 system, which is optimised to give the best results.
Honor 8X Max arrives with a 16MP primary camera, supported by a 2MP camera. The camera shots are quite good, though they are not technically high-quality. The images take up a lot of visible grain, and that makes the picture a bit less sharp. The colours appear a bit washed out as well. Low-light shots are generally not good at all, and the quality of the images plummet.
The phone comes with an 8MP selfie camera. The selfie camera produces satisfying photos which can be used for social media without an issue.
The phone comes with a massive 5000 mAh battery. The phone can smoothly run for two days with moderate use with a bit of gaming, music and video streaming, social media, as well as calling and texting. Plus, the phone comes with fast charging. It can take just under 2 hours to get a full charge, and that is a really impressive score.
As an affordable phone, the Honor 8X Max brings a lot on the table. One of the essential features of the phone is the large display. While it may be challenging to manage because of its unnatural dimensions, it offers a fantastic viewing experience. Plus, the phone has a large battery as well. The Honor 8X Max is a great phone for anyone looking to have a great viewing experience for an extended period.
