World’s leading smartphone brand, Honor, unveils the latest smartphone of their X-series in Pakistan last week in association with Inovi Technologies. The Honor8X – lustrous blue beauty is a device with all the necessary specifications that the tech savvy young crowd wants. Truly a smart-phone it is.
After successful launch of Honor 10 earlier this year, Honor Pakistan again managed to impress with Honor8X. The launch price of Honor 8X in Pakistan is Rs. 35,999 only. For the specs offered, this is pretty much accessible for most of the smartphone geeks out there.
Honor8X was launched at a star studded event at Dolmen Mall, Clifton Karachi. It was a great mall activation to facilitate consumers & smartphone geeks to have the first hand exclusive experience of Honor8X phone. I personally love such live interactions to experience the device itself. The event was attended by Ambassadors for Honor 8X including, The sibling duo Mehwish, Danish Hayat, renowned fitness enthusiast and entrepreneur Nusrat Hidayatullah and Irfan Junejo.
Honor8X boasts a 6.5-inch Notch, FullView Display with a 91% screen-to-body ration and chip-on-film (COF) technology along with other features like:
6.5” full-view display
128 GB internal storage
20 MP AI dual-lens rear camera with super night shot photography
3750mAh battery with Honor’s intelligent power – saving technology
New Kirin 710 chipsets (first ever in an Honor phone)
Overall, it is a beautiful sleek device that is definitely going beyond limits to be a style statement for its finish & feel. The AI technology not only optimizes the camera results but also helps in noise cancelations while on call to improve voice quality as well as eye comfort mode helps prevent eye fatigue due to blue light radiation emitted from screen. With trubo charging & such specs, what else one can ask for? Ticket to Mars? Go, see the phone & experience it yourself.
I have been obsessed with good camera phones even before these hand held devices became smarter. Since phones have become smartphones the evolution of camera & colors is just unstoppable. From white to black to gold to now favorite blue color in smartphones, Honor 10 has made the competition even tougher with AI camera integration. As soon as you look at H10 and hold it in your hands, you can’t resist praising its aura. Gorgeous Phantom blue color changing back with Aurora glass is something really beautiful. Aaj blue hai phone phone type feelz.
Honor Pakistan has launched their latest flagship device, Honor 10 with their official partner in Pakistan Inovi Technologies on 8th June at Dolmen Mall Clifton. The presence of heartthrob Irfan Junejo( the selfies with him were the craze that day), Nusrat Hidayatullah, Dino and Star Pakistani cricketer Rumman Raees along with Zeeshan Mianoor (COO-Inovi Technologies), Talha Aslam (Head of business – Inovi Technologies), DennisZhanglei (Country Manager Honor) & Eason Zouyitao(GTM and Retail Manager Honor) graced the occasion. Honor 10 is now available in the market for Rs. 55,999.
Honor 10 is literally Beauty in AI
On first look you got stinned bybthe feel and finish of Aurora glass body with color changing body in Phantom blue color. At least I haven’t seen anything gorgeously close to that feel. The device felt light & fits well in your palm.
The AI camera feature was my favourite aspect about Honor 10. If yoire wondering let me tell you that AI means Artificial intelligence and it is a feature that makes camera smarter. Due to AI Honor 10 enables you to professional quality photographs no matter how bad the lighting was. The pictures will be adjusted automatically with the backdrop. Look at this picture of Irfan Junejo that I took from Honor 10 while he was talking to media & decor of DMC. There’s no editing done. Planning to ditch DSLR already. Who needs that bulky camera when AI cameras of Honor 10 can give such results. Imagine photography by this device in Northern Areas of Pakistan.

To be honest I wasn’t ready to switch from a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime phone to Q mobile Noir series phones but apparently I did. The reason being high end specs of Noir Z series while keeping the price range under 25K. The temptation of moving from a 1GB RAM smartphone that hangs, can’t run snapchat etc was way too high and eventually I had to surrender. Got a beautiful rose gold colored handset of QMobile NoirZ12 for less than 23K (the same price for which I’ve bought my previous Samsung Selfie phone) few months back.
Apparently I was tempted to buy this set because of its high end specs and price that no one else offers for such features. Did I regret? Its been 8 months now and I have no complaints so far. Here are the reasons to love my NoirZ12 phone.
The set comes with a 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM(expandable via SD card). Been using snapchat ever since I got this phone and the app never crashed(touch wood). Smooth Android experience so far. The only problem with SD card is that you have to sacrifice second SIM option as it allows either SIM 2 or SD card. I am not fond of double SIM phones so it doesn’t matter but it has been advertised as a dual SIM phone that’s why it is important to note that the option limits use of expandable memory. On the other hand 32GB internal memory is more than enough too. Do it’s a 50-50 kinda feature. Not to love or hate.
This is one thing that I am peculiar about in my smartphones. Q Mobile NoirZ12 has 13MP rear and 8MP front camera & it is kick ass one. You can click HDR images to panorama ones. The result is outstanding. Selfie camera is quite good too. 5/5 for the camera. You’ll love the results.
NoirZ12 comes with a 3000mAH battery and it can last for a whole day while using Internet on it. This is another plus of this pretty set that it has a great battery life. To charge it faster, open extreme mode and you’ll save time on charging too.
Color and appearance
Rose gold color of NoirZ12 makes it stand out from other sets of the brand. Loved the sleek and thin look of it. My blogger friends were surprised that its not an iPhone lol. The rise gold color and finishing of the set makes it look a lot like iPhone. The hands free of the set comes in Rose gold color too. So fancy.
The phone Heats up sometimes when it was new. After a month or so it stopped behaving like that. Thank God.
USB Charger is not universal(it is a bit wider & has a flat pin). You need to get your own charging cable unlike other smartphones which can be charged with any other smartphone’s cable.
Dual SIM card restricts the use of SD card.
I just loved this phone. It is the best one in this price range out there.
