My Thoughts

The Honor 8x has some big shoes to fill. The Honor 7x released in Dec 2017, has been the most sold device on Amazon for 2018 and for great reason. It offers amazing value for money, excellent build quality, some solid cameras on the device and the Kirin 659 CPU really performed and was more than enough for the avg person. Here comes the Honor 8x and it takes everything up a notch. 

The design is gorgeous with its reflective gradient back and I think the side banner is a nice touch. The Kirin 710 CPU is a big upgrade over the Kirin 659 offering better battery life and performance. Throw in the bigger 3750mAh battery pack, and you got a device that can get you 1-2 days depending on your use. 

The 8x is a great balance of style, functionality, power and substance. One major issue I have is that a device as good as the 8x in 2018 is coming with a micro USB port. All devices in 2019 should have usb-Type C as a mandatory feature. For the price of what the 8x goes for, its so hard to nitpick as it excels in all areas for the price and is great for a wide variety of users. 

The Honor 8x is
