Taking our first look at the Honor 8X, it looks rather simple. First taking a look at the back of the phone, it has a two-tone color behind the glass back. The two-tone color is actually a fresh look for smartphones in the market. The two-tones aren’t contrasting each other but instead lighter in color.
The cameras do protrude quite a bit – so we hope that the Honor 8X does come with a case in the full retail set. The case will play quite a crucial role here since the Honor 8X is indeed slippery with the glass back.
The glass sandwich sinks blends into the metal frame of the phone quite well, creating a slim profile while looking and feeling elegant.
At the front, we see something unique – this phone has thin bezels all around and there’s a relatively small notch at the top. It’s a beautiful smartphone – but how did Honor achieve this?
This phone is definitely not small as my big hands can only reach about 40% of the 6.5-inch screen with one hand. Without the bottom chin, some might complain that the elements are way too low at the bottom of the screen – but I find it to be just fine after some time.
