Honor has packed this device with a point-and-shoot ready camera that goes well beyond its namesake, just for starters. It has also managed to keep its interface easy to use, in spite of loading that up with features. The company included extra features on top of that which more than offset most of...

Even at the lower end of the mid-range price spectrum for Android smartphones, there are a lot of issues. Audio doesn't sound great from this phone's speakers. The camera has plenty of relatively minor flaws. Google is completely absent and there seems to be a lot of bloatware.

While the Honor 9X and P Smart Z both launched at around 300 Euros (~$331), the latter can now be had for almost 100 Euros (~$110) off its retail price. Had the two devices launched simultaneously, then it may have been harder to choose between them. However, a slightly better primary camera and fas...

Overall the Honor 9X is a valuable addition to the budget market and can hold its own against some of the higher-priced models on the market. The excellent battery life and the great display make up for a pretty poor camera, particularly for a Huawei device. At under £300, the phone is an absolute s...

If you’ve got an Honor 8X definitely not, and if you’ve got an Honor 7X and are still fine with the performance, I’d keep that a bit longer too. The Honor 9X doesn’t feel like enough of an upgrade in enough areas to recommend it. What makes it worse is that we do not have a price point for this phon...

Honor has packed this device with a point-and-shoot ready camera that goes well beyond its namesake, just for starters. It has also managed to keep its interface easy to use, in spite of loading that up with features. The company included extra features on top of that which more than offset most of that component's shortcomings. Those features and smooth interactions remain consistent with Google, despite not having access to the search giant's apps or services.

While the Honor 9X and P Smart Z both launched at around 300 Euros (~$331), the latter can now be had for almost 100 Euros (~$110) off its retail price. Had the two devices launched simultaneously, then it may have been harder to choose between them. However, a slightly better primary camera and faster storage hardly justify spending one-third more for essentially the same device.

Overall the Honor 9X is a valuable addition to the budget market and can hold its own against some of the higher-priced models on the market. The excellent battery life and the great display make up for a pretty poor camera, particularly for a Huawei device. At under £300, the phone is an absolute steal and has the significant factor of Google apps which will ensure that it sells in European markets.

If you’ve got an Honor 8X definitely not, and if you’ve got an Honor 7X and are still fine with the performance, I’d keep that a bit longer too. The Honor 9X doesn’t feel like enough of an upgrade in enough areas to recommend it. What makes it worse is that we do not have a price point for this phone nor do we have a release date, which makes it even harder to recommend.

Surprise Google apps and pop-up selfie cam, but alas no NFC

All things considered, particularly the glaring omission of NFC, it’s hard to see the 9X making too many waves as it becomes available across more of Europe.

All things considered, particularly the glaring omission of NFC, it’s hard to see the 9X making too many waves as it becomes available across more of Europe. That Honor has managed to launch a phone in these parts with Google apps at all is an achievement, however. It might be the last one we see for a little while, and that’s a real shame given the impressive hardware Huawei and its sub-brand is capable of.

Flashy new look for a familiar formula

from Android Authority

The Honor 9X's focus on flamboyant style attempts to hide its so-so internal hardware. While definitely an upgrade from the 8X, there are more competitive choices out there.

GSMArena

A rather good mid-ranger with balanced features for its asking price

The 9X is a decent smartphone but not the best you can buy for its asking price. And unless it's discounted, we won't recommend it over the phones we mentioned above. But even then - until it gets an all-clear from Google in some way - we'd still have our doubts about its future.

Honor has a record of producing phones that look like flagships, but are actually less than half the price, and the 9X is no exception. With no notch or bezels it delivers a massive full-screen experience, while the back of the phone is equally striking. The triple lens camera promises a lot on paper, but not everything is a winner - the night mode in particular is not very impressive. However, the price still makes this phone a contender.
