Question – Does Honor 4x have Corning Gorilla Glass Protection?

Answer –  Honor 4x doesn’t list Gorilla Glass protection on top, and we are not yet sure if it comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. However, since the phone comes preinstalled with a scratch guard on top of display, Gorilla Glass protection is unlikely.

Question – How is the Display of Honor 4x

Answer – The large phablet sized display holds HD resolution. it is a pretty decent display, though not the best that we have seen. Whites are great, and blacks are a little less dark for our taste. viewing angles are good and maximum brightness levels are also very good. Auto-brightness seemed to work inconsistently, but that shouldn’t be a major issue. On the whole, it is a very good display for the price.

Question – How is the Build Quality?

Answer –  Honor 4x has a nice texture on the rear side, which also lends it a nice grip. side frame is also made of plastic and pops out along with the metallic power key and plastic volume rocker. Speaker grill and micro USB port are present on the bottom surface, while audio jack is present on the top. The handset is reasonably slim and feels sturdy and comfortable when held in hand.

Question – Is there any heating issue in Honor 4X?

Answer – So far, we haven’t experience any inconsistent heating issue.

Question – What comes inside the Box?

Answer – 1 Ampere wall charger, Documentation, USB Cable, headphones, 3000 mAh battery bank, a scratch guard pre-installed, a rear case

Question – What size SIM card is supported? How is the call quality?

Answer – Both SIM cards slots accept Micro SIM. Call quality is pretty good. we haven’t faced any issue so far.

Question – Does it have LED notification light?

Answer – Yes, LED notification light is there. You can switch off LED notifications from settings.

Question – How much is Free Storage? Can Apps be Transferred to SD card?

Answer –  Out of 8 GB, 4 GB is available at use end, Apps can be transferred to SD card.

Question – How is the Camera Quality?

Screenshot_2015-03-24-15-34-38Screenshot_2015-03-24-15-34-53

Answer – The 13 MP camera seems to be an above average shooter. Day light performance is very good, but low light performance suffers from noise and sometimes unexpected blurs. We liked the front camera performance of Honor 4x.

Question – How is the Device software?

Answer –  Huawei is using Android 4.4.4 KitKat based Emotion UI 3, which is again rich in option and features. Whether you like it or not will be more a matter of personal taste. There is no app drawer by default and animations are slightly slow. Each time the lock screen greets us with a new wallpaper, which is something we like. Cellular video calling is not supported. You can always use third party launcher according to your taste.

  1. An option for the aspirants of Micromax Yureka that stand better against Honor 6, in the case of the latter and Lenovo A7000 and Xiaomi 4g dual SIM phones, the ROM is only 8 GB, has no Corning Gorilla Glass 3/4 protection and to an extent loose on their after sales services.

  2. is there any heating issue on honor 4x ? can the phone play modern combat 5 ? please respond registered the phone …not sure about buying please help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Go to Setting –> More –> Mobile Network –> Preferred Network type –> and there you can see different option to select Automatic (3G/2G) to enable 3G and Automatic (4G & 3G & 2G) to enable 4G or only 4G/3G/2G. I will recommend try to select only 3G and if the problem exist, then you may need to check with you service provider if they have 3G support in your area and get the settings for your area.

  9. Deepak Ji Moto G2 or honor 4X, which one you feel best? honor 4X gold variant when can we expect in India? expected price range of gold?

  10. Does Honor 4X works in USA and other international countries? I see some of the phones like Xiaomi Redmi Note doesn’t work with USA sim cards like T-mobile, Straight Talk etc.

  11. Please answer my queries
    1. Is it dual active – can receive calls on other sim while one is busy
    2. While calling does it ask for which sim to use for calling ?
    3. Camera – how fast is the shutter – can it shoot a erver moving toddler ?
    4. how is the video quality
    5. my main use wd b browsing – will it work fine with 25 chrome windows open

    • shutter is slow, but it has a feature where you can double press volume key when pone is locked and it will open camera app and click images in about 1.6 seconds. This works well if you are steady.

      It is dual standby, i didn’t test calling with dual SIM, but that feature is fairly basic. Video quality is good. I didn’t test it with 25 chrome windows, but the handset is meant for basic and moderate usage. It won’t be ideal for that kind of usage in long run

  12. In every aspects honor 4x was good but it has a disadvantage that .
    The network mode in this was auto mode rather there was not only 3g /onThe4g mode…. The problem i am facing that on other phone where I can get lower 3g signal (said 1 or 2 tower strength) honor 4x doesn’t show 3g signal it auto switch to 2g mode. Its a major problem to lower 3g signal area.as its speed is good at higher strength area. Please help me to resolve from this problem

  29. How to turn on 4g dual sim in honor 4x ..only one sim can be activated for 4g or both …if yes then how???? Reply me with suggestions

    • To start the 4G on your device: Go to Setting –> More –> Mobile Network –> Preferred Network type –> and there you can see different option to select Automatic (3G/2G) to enable 3G and Automatic (4G & 3G & 2G) to enable 4G or only 4G/3G/2G. I will also recommend to first confirm with Airtel customer service center in your area to know if they will provide 4G support and get the settings for your area.

      And yes, it has 4G LTE connectivity on both the SIM cards, including support for 4G LTE bands (TDD B40 2300MHz and FDD B3 1800MHz).

    I’m using honor 4x for around 6 months but form the last update apps can’t able to move from phone memory to SD card… Even plenty of space its showing “couldn’t move app. storage insufficient ” and battery is draining fastly and it says media storage is consuming more power and mobile getting heated up at SD card place……. If I removed SD card there is no heating and draining problem……

    • You can set the notification light under settings; Go to Settings –> LED indicator.

      From here you can choose various options.
      You can also download NoLED from the Play Store, which has many options for incoming notifications and setting up the notification light.

  32. Hello. I have bought an honor 4x last month.. I have moved some apps to the sd card also.. Currently I have over 15 gb space on my sd card.. But when I try to move one more app to sd card then it says that not enough space in sd card.The apps that I have tried moving are of around 100 mb size..Can anyone help me with this problem?
    Thank you

    • Which app are you trying to move. Sometime, if it’s a pre-installed app then you cannot move it to SD card and hence see such error. So it will be help if you can mention the name of the app you are trying to move.
