Battery & Charger
Packed with a fairly large 3,750mAh battery, we predicted that the Honor 8X will last for a long time in terms of battery life – and we’ve been proven to be right. In our usual battery life test, the Honor 8X managed to last for nearly 14 hours.
Comparing with the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M1) and ZenFone 5 which uses the high-efficiency Snapdragon 636, we realized the efficiency of the Kirin 710 that is used in the Honor 8X is comparable. That’s a good sign, if you want a phone with an all-day battery life.
The Honor 8X comes with a 5V 2A charger, which is basically the standard right now. It does take quite a long time to completely charge the 3,750mAh battery. It reaches 50% battery at around 37 minutes, then 75% at 66 minutes, and finally 100% full charge at 116 minutes.
