Fresh design and good cameras

At the price, the Honor 9X brings a decent mix of cameras, design and performance to the table to woo buyers in the segment. It looks fresh and pretends to bring the most recent to the table when it comes to the specs -- even if that may not entirely be true for a sub Rs 15,000 smartphone being launched in 2020.

Elegant design, decent camera performance

from Smartprix

The notch-free screen is quite enticing, the performance is good enough for basic users, there’s ample available storage for the price, and most importantly, the cameras performed surprisingly well. On the downside, there is no fast charging and the uncertainty regarding software updates should be an issue for many.

The Honor 9X comes to a solid offering starting at Rs. 13,999. But, the device has some tough rivals like the Redmi Note 8 Pro and the Realme 5 Pro both of which offer a quad-rear camera setup under Rs. 15,000. What Honor 9X misses here is an additional camera sensor on the back panel. If you are more into flaunting a pop-up camera smartphone, then the 9X seems fit for you.

An affordable device with well-balanced performance

from TechNave

Overall, the helpful photography features and presence of Google services make this phone a worthy purchase if you are looking for a straightforward device that can get you through your day. The better cameras would make it better for the budding photographer while the large full view display is also great for movie streamers as well.
