Well, one thing sucks big time and everybody must’ve missed, there is no video stabilization. It’s a very big deal breaker that’s why Xiaomi always include that even on their entry level phones.

there are two 4gb versions. one with 64gb and another with 128gb rom. doing a quick google search on the 8x pricing from around the globe will show that the 4gb+64gb is in the $250 range which is safe to assume that unlike what is mentioned is this poorly researched article. the the php 12990 local pricing is for the 4+64gb version of the deivce.

Sir Louie, in Yugatech’s own hands-on video of the Honor 8X from September 2018 you can see that the ROM is only 64.00 GB total with 39.12 GB free.

You can see it from 3:03 to 3:08

Granted this video does not indicate that it’s the 12,990 pesos model, so it could be different from the Honor 8X sold in local stores.
