The Pad X8 tablet from the Chinese company Honor was released in September 2022. The device received optimized components that provide high performance combined with long battery life.

Processor: MediaTek Helio G80 12nm octa-core chipset. It is equipped with two powerful Cortex-A75 cores (2.0 GHz) and six economical Cortex-A55 cores (1.8 GHz).

Design and Ports

The back panel of the Honor Pad X8 is made of metal. It has a small brand logo and additional information engraved in fine print.

The ends of the device are made of plastic. They feature a USB-C charging port, power button, volume rocker, speakers, and a combo tray for a SIM card (optional) and memory card that will allow you to expand the memory of the tablet.

Tablet dimensions – 240 × 159 × 7.6 mm. It is very thin and moderately light, weighing 460 grams. Honor Pad X8 feels good in the hand and does not cause discomfort during prolonged use.


The display of the tablet is one of the key criteria you should pay attention to when buying. Honor Pad X8 is equipped with a high-quality screen with a diagonal of 10.08 inches and a resolution of 1920 × 1200 with an aspect ratio of 16:10 and a dot density of 224 ppi. This screen ratio is the happy medium in terms of usability and functionality.


The MediaTek Helio G80 chipset is quite a powerful processor, although it was made in 2020 using already outdated 12-nanometer process technology. Most of the MediaTek Helio G80 cores are energy efficient, and two of them are responsible for performance and provide power in game mode.

The full AnTuTu benchmark scores 185,234 points, the single-core Geekbench 5 scores 348, and the multi-core Geekbench 5 scores 1289.

Honor Pad X8 is suitable for many modern, but undemanding games.


Honor Pad X8 has a small capacity battery – 5100 mAh. Thanks to the efficient processor, the tablet has good battery life. Under heavy load, such as demanding games and software, the tablet battery will last 7-8 hours. In playback and video viewing mode, the battery will provide up to 11 hours of operation.

Closest Competitor

The Honor Pad X8’s closest competitor is the third-generation Lenovo Tab M10, released in May 2020. Lenovo’s tablet gets an older 2019 Unisoc Tiger T610 processor that also has eight cores (all at 1.8 GHz), 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of main storage and a battery of the same capacity. The only difference is the higher resolution cameras (8 MP main, 5 MP front). Despite the weaker processor, Lenovo’s market value is an order of magnitude higher than Honor’s, making the Pad X8 model the best in its budget class.


Honor Pad X8 is a cost-effective and multi-functional device suitable for various use cases. This tablet is equipped with a large, high-quality screen, speakers and productive components. The device is thin and pleasant to use, and its autonomy is sufficient for a whole day of work.
