Honor X9b – Snap Review

Honor has been making waves with afforable yet impressive devices. The brand has launched its X9b in South Africa, and we got our hands on it to see what it has to offer.

The headline feature of the X9b is its durability, as Honor has bragged about its Ultra-Bounce, Anti-Drop technology, which gives the device a five-star rating from SGS. This allows serious shock absorption, preventing damage that would cause other phones to meet their demise.

The Honor X9b 5G boasts a triple camera system consisting of a 108MP Lossless Camera Capture, a 5MP Ultra-Wide Camera, and a 2MP Macro Camera. The 108MP Ultra-Clear Camera comes with a large 1/1.49-inch sensor and a big f/1.75 aperture, allowing it to capture more light and produce images with vivid clarity. 

The camera also offers high optical quality with 3X zoom and an outstanding motion capture engine, for clear shots with vibrant detail. It works excellently in practice, and the shots are clear, strong in colour, and the autofocus works surpsingly quickly and efficiently.

The Honor X9b 5G comes with a durable and long-lasting 5 800 mah battery. This gives you a lot of juice for a full day’s use with no charge.

The device also features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 Mobile Platform, which is appearing in many devices lately and performs well when multi-tasking.

Running the latest MagicOS 7.2 based on Android 13, the Honor X9b 5G provides access to a range of upgraded and customised features. These include the Honor Docs Suite, for a more convenient experience of remote working. What’s more, users don’t have to compromise their much-loved Google Mobile Services (GMS), and its suite of apps.

Equipped with a 6.78-inch AMOLED Curved Display, the Honor X9b 5G is quite striking to look at, and while it’s a more sizable device, its extra screen space will appeal to those who spend a fair bit of time consuming media on their device.

The Honor X9b 5G is available in two colourways – Sunrise Orange and Midnight Black — with a retail price of R10 999. It scores 5 out of 5.
