All in all, this Honor X9a seems to be built to last, especially for clumsy people like me (just don't drop it on water, please).

It checks a lot of boxes that include light and elegant design, decent performance, 5G connectivity, 40W fast charging, and an amazing and durable display. 

This device is solid if those things are on your priority list, but if you like to play heavy games or take high-quality photos and videos, then there may be better options out there.

But in general, this phone is a bang for your buck and HONOR did not disappoint us.
