At first glance, this is two very similar mobile phones. However, we’ll find their detailed difference and help you choose the product more suitable for you.

Visually, the HONOR 8X and HONOR 8C are very much alike. They have similar notch designs and the same camera placement, but the HONOR 8C is a bit smaller and thinner. Unlike the HONOR 8X glossy glass body, the HONOR 8C has a matte texture. HONOR 8C is the first smartphone to feature the Cat’s Eye Design, a subtle effect created using 3D printing and nano-level pattern design.

Naturally, the HONOR 8X with a 6.5-inch display panel is the larger smartphone. Another good news is that the display resolution of the HONOR 8X, 1080 x 2340 pixels, is better than the other. For those who have higher screen requirements, you can choose the HONOR 8X. However, both mobile phones are equipped with the TÜV Rheinland Certified Eye-care Mode. The new generation eye comfort mode reduces blue light radiation emitted by the screen to protect your eyes and prevent eye strain, especially in dim light.

The HONOR 8C is the world’s first Snapdragon 632 Smartphone. It is said that the Snapdragon 632 octa-core processor in HONOR 8C boasts up to 40% performance improvement over the Snapdragon 626, and is designed for faster web browsing, snappier user interface and extended battery life. When the Snapdragon 632 is compared with the Kirin 710, which chipset will perform better? Let’s see.

PLATFORM OS Android 8.1 (Oreo); EMUI 8.2 Android 8.1 (Oreo), upgradable to Android 9.0 (Pie); EMUI 9.0
Chipset Qualcomm SDM632 Snapdragon 632 (14 nm) Hisilicon Kirin 710 (12 nm)
CPU Octa-core (4x1.8 GHz Kryo 250 Gold & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 250 Silver) Octa-core (4x2.2 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4x1.7 GHz Cortex-A53)
GPU Adreno 506 Mali-G51 MP4

According to the table, the Kirin 710 seems to have a better performance at CPU and GPU.

Camera& Battery
The HONOR 8X has an absolute advantage in camera. The 20 MP+2MP AI rear camera with an f/1.8 can be comparable to a professional-level camera. In comparison, the HONOR 8C with 13+2MP dual AI camera seems a bit inferior. As for the front camera, the HONOR 8X’s 16MP camera is stronger than the HONOR 8C’s.

Speaking of the battery capacity, the HONOR 8X has 3750mAh battery while the 8C’s battery is 4000mAh. The battery of the HONOR 8C seems more powerful, but their fast charging ability seems to be almost no difference.

The contrast between the HONOR 8C and the HONOR 8X is coming to an end. Have you found a mobile phone that is more suitable for you?
