    why in the hell are sites saying its 4gb 128gb rom? its 4gb and 64gb for 12990. the 6gb 128gb version costs more.

  3. duduts says:

    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.

    • I don’t know where you got your info but ours came from Honor themselves. We were even present during their media launch. Lazada and Shopee listings also show 4GB + 128GB. I hope that settles it.

    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.
