Want something bigger and powerful to play on?

To get you started, we have discussed in detail about Honor 8X- the most powerful smartphones in the gaming world today. The balance of performance and a few must-have features make Honor 8X the winner in the market.

Key Specifications of Honor 8X

  • Kirin 710 SoC
  • 4GB RAM / 64GB storage
  • 3750mAh battery
  • microSD slot and dual-SIM
  • 20MP + 2MP camera

In case you’re looking for the device that is best for the day-to-day performance and affordable too, then you’d be glad to buy Honor 8X that perform consistently, with no signs of lag at all. The all-new Honor 8X comes with an octa-core Kirin 710 SoC coupled with up to 4GB RAM / 64GB storage, making it the leading mid-rangers in the market today.

Here’s our gaming review of the best-selling smarthphone Honor 8X:

Honor 8X Gaming Review

Similar to Honor 10 and Honor Play, Honor 8X runs on Android 8.1 with Encrypted Mobile User Identity (EMUI) 8.2. The new v8.2 Face Unlock comes with machine learning, some new Gaming tricks, and an improved Party Mode for music playback sync across devices.

The Honor 8X manages to run PUBG Mobile without any issues. There are no frame drops and the game loads up quickly.

The device touts GPU Turbo (technology that improves graphics), which helps optimize its GPU performance according to the scene of the game that’s being rendered. So we can say that PUBG Mobile support GPU Turbo.

Surprisingly, the Kirin 710 (processor lineup by HiSilicon) outperforms Snapdragon 636 (SDM636) because of the faster CPU.

To add another positive review, heating isn’t an issue with the Honor 8X as the device barely get warm while playing PUBG for a couple of hours straight. The phone runs fairly well at medium settings, but does have issues like frame rate drops (caused by overheating) so we recommend enabling the option ‘auto-adjust’ graphics for a more consistent gaming experience.

With the large display of Honor 8X, gaming feels more immersive and interesting and we would definitely say that the device performance is at par or even better than its completion.

Pros of Honor 8X

  • Fantastic battery life
  • Good performance
  • Great screen
  • Swift fingerprint scanner

Cons of Honor 8X

  • Micro USB charging-No wireless or fast charging
  • Camera takes a bit of  effort to capture good shots
  • Too many bloatware and pre-installed apps

Another point worth mentioning is that PUBG Mobile’s User Interface on the Honor 8X smarthphone isn’t optimized for the notched display and some UI elements get cut by the rounded corners.

Final thought

The Honor 8X is a worth buying phone that packs in great performance and impressive stamina for the money. It costs around the same as Moto G6 Plus, but has a more attractive design and features. The camera if used with some consideration could give you mind-boggling shots and as far as the design is concerned, Honor 8X has killer looks. The sheer size of the screen display makes this a true enthusiast phone, best for gaming, reading long articles, and video streaming.

We would like to recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable mid-range device for their gaming needs.
