Honor rang in 2020 by launching the Honor 9X in India, alongside the Honor Magic Watch 2 smartwatch and the Honor Band 5i. The Honor 9X succeeds the Honor 8X, and brings some notable upgrades such as a faster SoC, a full-screen display, better cameras, and a larger battery, to name a few. Starting at Rs. 13,999, the Honor 9X offers a compelling package in terms of hardware and design. However, it goes up against some well-received rivals from Xiaomi, Realme, Nokia, and Vivo. Does the Honor 9X have what it takes to stand out and disrupt the segment? Read our in-depth assessment of the phone's merits and demerits to find out.

Honor 9X Summary

Honor 9X succeeds the Honor 8X and brings some notable aesthetic as well as performance upgrades. The notch-less full-HD+ display is sufficiently sharp and punchy, but outdoor visibility is a bit sub-par and the large size makes one-handed usage difficult. The Kirin 710F ticking at its heart handles day-to-day tasks with ease, but it stutters at graphics-intensive games, and synthetic benchmarks narrate the same story as well.

However, the phone's 4,000mAh battery is a redeeming factor and it easily lasts over a day with moderate to heavy usage. The triple rear cameras are just average in terms of their imaging output. Daylight shots turn out crisp with decent colour reproduction, but oversharpening is clearly visible. Selfies are also plagued by overprocessing. However, the night mode helps the Honor 9X punch above its weight at low-light photography. 

Priced starting at Rs. 13,999, the Honor 9X is a compelling package, but the rivals from Xiaomi, Realme, and Vivo offer better value for money, both in terms of on-paper specifications and actual performance.

      Kirin 810 processor is so powerful that even redmi note 8 Pro cannot bear it. Highest antutu benchmark in mid segment is honor 9x Pro followed by honor 9x, redmi note 8 Pro, realms x.
