This Honor 9X packs a large and bezel-less screen with crisp visuals, the configuration underneath is also promising and delivers a clutter-free day to day experience and mid-range game playing. The design is appealing and feels good in the hand. The cameras take good pictures and storage is sufficient for normal use can be expanded. With normal usage, the battery should last about a day. However, it lacks a dedicated memory card slot.
The device sports a 5.84″ (14.83 cm) IPS LCD display having a screen resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels, an aspect ratio of 19:9 and pixel density of 432 PPI. Honor 9X features a bezel-less display with capacitive touchscreen supporting multi-touch, having the screen to body ratio as 79.07 percentage.
The Honor 9X comes with a hidden 16 MP selfie camera that pops out automatically when activated. The very fact that the camera is well-hidden gives more real estate for an immersive viewing experience on the phone. The motorised camera comes with innovative features such as Intelligent Fall Detection that enables the selfie camera to quickly retract once you are done taking the selfie. It also comes with protection against external pressure. The phone also comes with dust and splash protection.
THE TRIPLE CAMERA
Coming to the cameras, the Honor 9X gets a triple camera setup on the back, typical for a 2019 phone. There’s a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra wide-angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor. Based on a few outdoor photos, we found the main camera to offer good detailing and crispness, but some photos looked a little overexposed. The wide-angle lens comes in handy to capture images with a new perspective, which looked decent, but the 8MP sensor won’t offer a lot of details. The depth sensor manages to capture attractive bokeh shots with decent edge detection.
