The Honor 8X Camera Test

By | 22nd October 2018

In this XDA TV video, we put the Honor 8X to the ultimate camera test. We compared it to other recent phones from Honor, tested the video capabilities, selfie mode, slow-mo, and everything else you could think of.

Below you’ll find the photo samples that we analysed in this video.

Night Shots

The first four shots from the samples below are taken at dusk with the default photo mode. The second two shots are taken with night mode. Night mode shots require a tripod or something else to keep your phone perfectly still while shooting.

Honor 8X Compared to Other Devices

For this comparison, I put the Honor 8X up against the Honor 7X, Honor Play, and Honor 10. The phones that have the AI feature have it toggled on for these photo samples.
