Honor 9X review: A good, affordable phone with some unfortunate flaws

Honor 9X succeeds the previous variant in terms of impressive design and enhanced functionality. The large display will make it difficult to use from one hand, but the notch-less display looks fantastic in the hands of the users. The strong processor helps to perform day-to-day activities without any problems.

There is a triple primary camera set up that helps users to click wonderful images compared to a lot of other segments at this price range. The highlight of the smartphone, however, is undoubtedly a pop-up selfie.
