Honor X9b First Impressions and Review

The Honor X9b has made a significant impact in the Indian mid-range market, boasting a durable display, generous battery, and powerful camera setup. The design incorporates a sleek body, and it stands out as the first smartphone to receive a five-star overall drop resistance certification from Switzerland’s SGS.

Inside the slim profile, the phone houses a substantial 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a 1.5K resolution, a rarity in this price segment. The 120Hz refresh rate and up to 12000 nits of brightness enhance the viewing experience, prioritizing eye protection with features like PWM dimming and blue light filtering.

Powered by the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset, coupled with 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage, the X9b offers smooth performance. The 5,800mAh battery promises an impressive lifespan, lasting up to three days with typical use. 

The phone runs on Magic OS 7.2-based Android 13, with assured upgrades to Android 14 and 15, along with three years of security updates.

The camera setup includes a 108-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. While the camera performance is deemed suitable for casual photography, there's room for improvement. 

The device is priced at Rs 25,999 (~$315), making it a strong competitor in the mid-range segment, especially during promotional periods where it may be available at a discounted price.

Buyers of the X9b can benefit from a mobile protection plan, including a one-time screen replacement, assured buyback option, 18 months of warranty, and door-to-door service assistance. Collaborating with Onsite Go, the benefits also cover deductions for missing accessories or damages, providing a comprehensive package for users.
