Honor 4X review

 

Power to the people: a capable phablet that delivers on a budget

Decent performance ; Superb battery life ; Solid build quality ; Capable cameras

Emotion UI not great ; Only available online ; Minimal aesthetics may not appeal

A powerful big-screen experience and an advanced feature set make the Honor 4X a budget winner for anyone other than the most resolute of Android purists

Honor 4X review

 

The Honor 4X could be better made, but this is a fast budget phone with a great camera and excellent battery life

The Honor 4X is a great phone for £145 and its superior battery life, camera and performance certainly makes a convincing argument to tempt you away from Motorola's Moto G. However, it simply can't beat Motorola on build and display quality, and the...

Honor 4x review: A phablet for less

 

Huawei's budget phablet is a real cracker – a 5.5in smartphone for less than £150

Review: Honor 4X

 

The Honor 4X is a very peculiar device. Costing only £149.99, and available from Amazon or Three, this device packs in what feels like a great device to hold and[...]

With all the great value for money this phone brings, I am a bit confused. It packs in great specs, a decent camera, a great screen size, and yet costs only £150. My only qualms come from EMUI, and since I have a review unit with beta features, I am...

Honor 4X Smartphone Review

 

Big meets affordable. Honor, Huawei's subsidiary, launches a device in the growing phablet sector with its new Honor 4X. The austerely designed casing contains a lot for approximately 200 Euros (~$220): LTE Cat4, a sufficiently fast octa-core SoC,...

Large, bright IPS screen, Swift octa-core SoC, Regular Android updates, Fast use, Long battery life, LTE Cat.4, Rigid casing, Dual-SIM feature

Much too tight internal storage, App2SD not for all apps, Screen resolution, No NFC, Poor speaker, GPS performance

Honor's pithy slogan "Power up" on the product website likely relates to the good application performance of the 64-bit SoC and the very long-lasting battery. The phablet admittedly did not achieve the manufacturer's specified runtime of 48 hours, but...

Huawei Honor 4X review: Battery life is good, but there are better options under Rs 10,000 - Tech2

 

We review Huawei's budget 4G phablet - the Honor 4X and see how it competes against the incumbents - Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and Yu Yureka

Huawei Honor 4X is the latest entrant in the budget 4G phablet segment. Now while the phone is a decent performer, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and Yu Yureka at Rs 9,999 and Rs 8,999 respectively, offer a better value for money than the Honor 4X’s Rs...

Honor 4X provides big screen on a budget (hands-on)

 

BARCELONA -- I've previously been impressed with Huawei's Honor brand of phones. The Honor 6 was a particular gem, with great specs for an extremely competitive price. At this year's Mobile World Congress at Barcelona, Honor showed off its new 4X...
