How are your addressing durability concerns with HonorX9a? Why should consumers choose this smartphone?
Undergoing two tempering processes, the Honor X9a’s display glass, which is equipped with an industry-leading thickness of 0.65mm, has been designed to withstand accidental drops on marble from heights of up to 1m.

The smartphone has gone through a series of rigorous tests across various scenarios, ranging from environmental tests, mechanical stress tests, durability tests, performance tests, software tests, and the list can go on. However, the one set of tests that caught our attention was the series of drop tests that were performed on Honor X9a.

To check the physical endurance of the smartphone, we dropped the device on the marble floor front, a height of 1m, on marble and concrete floors without being cracked. Based on our testing, the Honor X9a can withstand drops from users’ pockets onto hard surfaces from a height of 1m without breaking.
