Connectivity & Ports
The Honor 8X has a few great merit points when it comes to its connectivity. It’s one of the few rare phones that actually has true dual-SIM + microSD card slot, which is found on the left side of the phone. You can put in two SIM cards and a microSD card at the same time!
We’ve only seen such expandability in the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M1) which we reviewed here – which makes the Honor 8X a gem for those who needs dual-SIM.
At the bottom of the phone we can see a 3.5mm audio jack, a microphone, a micro USB port, and the mono speaker grill.
At the right side is where we’ll find all the buttons. We have the power and volume rocker which feel tactile and satisfying to press.
However, it only uses 2.4GHz for WiFi – which means it only supports up to 802.11n WiFi. Not a huge deal considering 2.4GHz can transmit WiFi signal further albeit at slower speed. Stable WiFi is more important when it comes to online gaming anyway.
