1. Foreword:The best solution for audiovisual entertainment! How can cheap big screens be absent in the 5G era?
With the gradual roll-out and maturity of full screens, slender full screens with more than 6 inches have become the mainstream of the market. In contrast, up to 7-inch”big screens” And”small screens” down to 4.5 inches have gradually become a minority existence. But their advantages are still not to be ignored. Like large-screen mobile phones, although niche, they still have their own corner of the market, and there are many fans.
But since last year, large-screen mobile phones have fallen into silence. Perhaps because of cost constraints, or because the market is too small, in addition to some high-priced flagship models that are positioned for e-sports, they are still updated, and the options for affordable large-screen phones are becoming less and less. Especially in 2020, after 5G has gradually become a must-have parameter for mobile phones, 5G large-screen mobile phones are even more scarce. I have to say that it is a little regrettable.
Since there is no new large-screen machine available, we have to wait for this choice. This time, when the party finally won the victory, at the midpoint of 2020, it finally ushered in the release of the first 5G affordable large-screen mobile phone. The Honor X10 Max has a 7.09-inch screen with a resolution of 2200×1080. While the size is further increased, the overall screen ratio is not so slender. Compared with the standard 6-inch full-screen mobile phone, it is a whole circle larger. The price started at 1899 yuan, and the big screen party’s wishes finally came true.
Since it is a large-screen mobile phone, its advantages are obvious. For general users, large screens have natural advantages in video and audio entertainment such as games and videos. The size between a tablet and a mobile phone can provide a clearer display, and it can also be easily held with both hands; For special groups such as the elderly and people with poor eyesight, larger screens can display content at a larger scale, making it easier to read text messages.
On the basis of the large screen, the Honor X10 Max has added a number of new features to make this phone more attractive. For example, the screen uses a unique RGBRGW pixel arrangement to further improve the brightness of the screen and save power. The increase in brightness can greatly add points to the mobile phone’s outdoor use experience, and power saving can further alleviate the pressure on battery life caused by the large screen.
In addition, Honor X10 Max is also equipped with a good-performance 5G core-Dimensity 800, which not only has good support for 5G in all frequency bands, but its performance is also sufficient to ensure the performance of many popular mobile games. Stable and smooth operation, the heat dissipation area is also increased under a larger body, which brings better heat dissipation effect; in addition, there are dual 1217 super linear speakers to help out, providing higher volume and better surround sound quality .
Next, is a detailed evaluation.
2. Appearance:The 7.09-inch large screen is still light and thin. The dual-speaker design is intimate and not afraid of blocking
In terms of appearance, the Honor X10 Max is equipped with a 7.09-inch The screen, with a resolution of 2200×1080, uses a full-screen solution with a center-mounted water drop screen, and the screen-to-body ratio has reached more than 90%.
In the water drop, there is an 8-megapixel front camera, and the earpiece is directly above the camera.
On the back, Honor X10 Max uses a diamond shadow light pattern design, which gives the back cover a touch of movement under the light. Other respects are quite satisfactory, the LOGO is placed in the lower position in the middle, and the rear camera module adopts a rectangular style.
Rectangular rear camera module, dual cameras and flashes together form part of the rectangular elements, and the rest is the text logo of the super night scene. The Honor X10 Max uses a 48 million main camera + 2 million depth-of-field lens rear camera combination, which can meet daily shooting needs without a problem.
The conventional interface is nothing special. The Honor X10 Max adopts a dual microphone design, is equipped with a Type-C interface, and supports a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The more special one is the dual speakers. The Honor X10 Max is equipped with dual 1217 super linear speakers, which have good volume and sound quality. In addition, their positions are all inclined to the same side, which ensures that the speaker opening will not be blocked when holding the phone with both hands. Moreover, the speaker opening on the top and the rear camera adopt the same side design, which is evident in the optimization of the internal structure in order to avoid conflicts.
Because it is a LCD screen, Honor X10 Max uses a side fingerprint unlocking solution. The capacitive fingerprint itself has a very high recognition rate and anti-interference, and will not affect the appearance of the body.
In addition, the SIM card slot of Honor X10 Max supports simultaneous insertion of dual SIM cards or a form of single SIM card + Micro SD card expansion. It also has a certain expansion in dual card dual standby and additional storage. Sex.
3. Performance:Dimensity 800 5G SOC game can kill without pressure
In terms of core configuration, Honor X10 Max uses MediaTek’s mid-range positioning Dimensity 800 as its processor. Dimensity 800 adopts 7nm process, its CPU adopts 4 A76 large core + 4 A55 small core configuration, and the frequency is 2.0GHz, with Mali-G57 MP4 GPU, although it is not the top of the mid-range chips Performance, but definitely more than enough for playing games.
——Game Performance Test
This time, we will use three games to test the game performance of Honor X10 Max, a large-screen mobile phone , Which are”Glory of the King”,”Peace Elite” and”Ace Warrior”. All use the setting with the highest frame rate priority, and run with the highest image quality option at the highest frame rate.
1. Glory of Kings
“Glory of Kings” is currently the most popular mobile MOBA game on the market. In this test, our picture quality is fully enabled. Play for a while and see how the frame rate changes.
At the highest image quality, the frame rate of Honor X10 Max running”Honor of Kings” is very stable, the average frame rate has reached 61FPS, and the frame rate of the whole game is very stable, and no freeze occurs. .
2, Peace Elite
“Peace Elite” is currently the most popular mobile shooting game on the market, and it has higher frame rate requirements . We use smooth image quality and turn on the 60 frame rate mode for gaming.
“Peace Elite” has always had high requirements for mobile phone performance during the game, so it only provides 60FPS options under smooth image quality. The Honor X10 Max has an average frame rate of 59.4FPS when playing”Peace Elite” in the smooth image quality +60Hz mode. Although there have been several freezes, the frame rate during most of the game is stable.
3. Ace Fighter
“Ace Fighter” is an FPS mobile game that supports the release of various skills and requires a relatively smooth operation. High, and supports high frame rate refresh mode. However, when the character is killed, the game will automatically adjust to run at a frame rate of 45FPS, so care should be taken to avoid false judgments as dropped frames.
Use the highest image quality to play the game. Excluding the frame rate data in the death playback stage, you can find that the frame rate of Honor X10 Max is very stable, with an average frame rate of 60.9FPS. There were 2 to 3 freezes, but it was almost imperceptible, and the game could still be played smoothly overall.
Although it is not equipped with a high refresh screen, the Honor X10 Max still has excellent game performance under the combination of good picture quality and 60Hz screen. Don’t forget the natural advantage that the 7.09-inch large screen brings to the game , For daily games, its performance and that large screen can be easily competent.
——Game heating performance
Not only is the performance excellent, because of the larger body, the Honor X10 Max’s heat dissipation effect is also outstanding, which makes it Can give full play to the full strength of Dimensity 800.
During the game test, the body temperature of Honor X10 Max is always in the”warm” category, and there is no obvious heating phenomenon. After measuring the temperature of the body after a round of game testing, the performance of the Honor X10 Max is also very satisfactory. Both the front and the back are kept within 40°C, so you can play games without worrying about being hot.
Four. Experience:The brightness of the RBGW sun screen has been significantly improved. The dual speakers are good for sound.
As one of its main selling points, the Honor X10 Max The screen is naturally worthy of attention. It has many amazing parameters, such as the size of 7.09 inches, the color gamut up to 100%DCI-P3 and so on. The most noteworthy thing is the RGBW display technology adopted this time, which increases the brightness of the screen and reduces the power consumption, improves the experience of using the Honor X10 Max outdoors, and greatly reduces the pressure on the battery life of the large screen.
At its root, the RGBW display technology adopted by Honor X10 Max actually replaces the blue pixels in the RGB sub-pixels of the original LCD screen with white pixels in a certain order to form a unique RGBRGW arrangement , Because of the addition of white pixels, higher brightness can be provided, and at the same time, because the white pixels use the backlight more efficiently, thus achieving a certain degree of power saving effect.
For mobile phone LCD screens, it has always been difficult to increase the brightness. This time the maximum brightness of Honor X10 Max can reach 780nit, which greatly improves the visual effect of outdoor screens. When taken outdoors, the advantages of high brightness are clear at a glance compared to traditional LCD screens with a brightness of only 300 to 400 nits.
Of course, due to the pixel arrangement of RGBRGW, the fineness of the overall screen of Honor X10 Max will be affected to a certain extent. However, with a larger screen size, the Honor X10 Max has a larger display ratio in daily use and the best use distance. In daily use, the resolution has minimal impact on the experience. In comparison, larger screens and higher brightness improve the daily experience more obviously. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages, and it can be regarded as the best choice for overall cost, pricing and experience.
In addition, the volume and sound quality of the dual 1217 super linear speakers equipped with Honor X10 Max are also quite amazing, and the design is also very careful. The symmetrical design, and they are all close to the same side, ensure that the microphone will not be blocked when holding the Honor X10 Max horizontally, and the same stereo effect on both sides can be obtained.
This time the Honor X10 Max also supports NFC function, which can realize the simulation of access card and bus card and Huawei payment. For example, the bus card supports the cloud card function. When the device is changed, the card can be transferred directly, saving the card opening fee and balance.
As a 5G large-screen mobile phone, the 5G performance of Honor X10 Max is also worth testing. The 5G speed, delay, and jitter of MediaTek chips are not inferior to other 5G chips. It easily ran to a peak speed of 932Mbps, and the daily use of 5G networks will naturally not be too bad.
Fifth, taking pictures:48 million rear shots are enough to record daily beautiful scenery. Quickly snap shots more clearly
Although taking pictures is not the biggest selling item of Honor X10 Max , But this does not prevent its 46 million pixel rear camera from showing its skills in daily photography. Based on the principle of four-in-one pixels, Honor X10 Max can have a larger pixel area when taking pictures, thereby improving its dynamic range and dark details. Combined with algorithms for certain synthesis and adjustments, it can easily record daily beautiful scenery. task.

For night photography, the Honor X10 Max can truly restore the role at night. In this kind of In a dark scene, although the highlights are suppressed, there is not much processing for the dark parts or even the brightness is suppressed, so the final imaging style is different from the familiar night scene photos, and the contrast of light and dark is particularly strong.
The Honor X10 Max’s camera comes with a fast snapshot function, which can automatically identify the captured scene and reduce the exposure time to achieve the effect of capturing. In the past, most mobile phones were unable to shoot moving objects in automatic mode due to multi-frame synthesis and long exposure. However, the Honor X10 Max can adjust the exposure speed to shoot according to the scene to ensure the clarity of the photos.

In addition to the 48-megapixel main camera, the Honor X10 Max also has a 2-megapixel The depth-of-field lens can simulate the depth-of-field effect of different apertures in the large aperture mode, and can see the transition of the depth of field, and the edge recognition is very natural.
Six. Battery life:5000mAh large battery supports the game life for 6 hours start
Although the screen of Honor X10 Max uses a special pixel arrangement to save power , But under the combination of 5G + large screen, battery life will still be severely challenged, so the Honor X10 Max is equipped with a 5000mAh battery to enhance its battery life.
Next, let’s take a look at the battery life of Honor X10 Max through video playback test and game test.
——Video endurance test
