The Honor 8X Sneak Preview – Fresh From The Oven!

honor 8X Camera Performance - Photos + Videos


honor 8X Camera Performance – Photos

honor did not reveal the model of the sensor used in the 20 MP main camera, but the photos have a resolution of 5120 x 3840 pixels, with the 4:3 aspect ratio. Despite the high resolution, Honor appears to use a more efficient (or lossier) compression algorithm, resulting in a file size of between 3 MB and 4 MB in most photos.

Here are 8 high-resolution samples for you to check out. Click on them to load the full-sized photos, which you can also download to examine.

honor 8X Camera Performance – Video Recording

Despite its high-resolution 20 MP sensor, the honor 8X can only record 1080p videos at up to 60 fps. Here are two videos we recorded to test its video recording capabilities.

Video Recording Test #1 : Piano

First off – we can see that there is no optical or electrionic image stabilisation, so the video can get very jerky. The audio also lacks sufficient noise cancellation.

On the bright side, the image quality is very good, and the colours are vivid, albeit a little oversaturated. There is also very good control of the highlights. A shame about the lack of stabilisation.

Video Recording Test #2 : Food Fair

The lack of image stabilisation is obvious from the jerkiness. A real shame because the image quality is very good.


Coming Soon – The Full Review

honor informed us that while this is a production unit, it’s running on a beta version of the firmware. We will upgrade this preview to a full review after we test with a production firmware.
