Honor 8X has been launched as budget segment Smartphone priced at around Rs. 15000 (aprrox. $210 USD). Honor Smartphones compete well with the budget range Xiaomi Smart phones and the new Realme U1 so, this review is going to be an interesting one. The Honor 8x is packed with features in a compact elegant body.
Now, we would like to talk about Dual Rear facing camera which has the 20 MP (f/1.8) acting as the primary and the secondary 2 MP plays the role of a depth sensor, the overall UI of the camera is quite simple and offers modes like Aperture, Night mode, Bokeh/ Portrait and Video. The AI powered Rear camera does a decent job in daylight, but at the same time it tends to over saturate the images by adding contrast to it. In low light the rear camera performs, aveagely with tons of missing details when observed carefully.
The front facing camera is a 16 MP front facing also performs decently at the price, but the AI mode again shatters the natural experience of capturing selfies. However, additional features like Slow-Mo, Pro Mode, Panorama, AR Lens, HDR and Time Lapse are always great to have in a Smartphone’s Camera at this range
While fans don’t get the option to record videos in 4K, being limited to just 1080p with no form of video stabilization was quite disappointing
