Honor X9b first impression


The Honor X9b has to be the sleekest smartphone with a 5,800mAh battery in the segment. It measures 7.98mm in thickness and weighs 185 grams. The phone also looks premium with its vegan leather design and luxury watch-inspired round camera module.


As for the viewing experience, the Honor X9b sports a tall 6.78-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, centred punch-hole, and razor-thin bezels. Early impressions of the display are punchy and vibrant.


The Honor X9b draws power from Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC. There's 8GB RAM and 256GB non-expandable storage. In our brief usage, there weren't any noticeable lags and app freezes.


The Honor X9b includes a triple camera setup comprising a 108MP primary sensor. Initial images shot from the cameras look good in a well-lit environment. Stay tuned for further insights into the cameras' performance, particularly in low-light conditions.


The 5,800mAh battery on the Honor X9b is rated to last up to three days, but that totally depends upon your usage. We are yet to test this claim. However, the battery is DXOMark Gold standard certified and comes with a three-year Anti-aging guarantee. There's 35W charging support.
