HONOR 8X, which is an amazing mid-range handset, is the world's first smartphone to obtain a TUV Rheinland certification for its Eye Comfort mode. The device was welcomed with positive reviews.
It indeed deserves its share of praise because it is packed with a powerful Kirin 710 octa-core chipset, a 20MP+2MP rear dual camera, and a GPU Turbo. There are three display modes in HONOR 8X. The first is the sunlight automatic mode, where the display automatically adjusts to available sunlight. The second is the night mode, where various regular night time phone tasks are performed. The third is the Eye Comfort mode, which is for bedtime reading.
HONOR 8X Eye Comfort Mode Explained
The TUV Rheinland Group is a global corporation that specializes in IT services, mobility solutions, product safety services and other industry services. It's renowned for its very high standards. And if a product or service is certified by TUV Rheinland, it's tantamount to saying that the product or service is of top quality. That said, we now know that HONOR 8X already has an edge over other mid-range phones, because no other smartphones, not even flagship ones, can flaunt such a certification, at least as of now. While many smartphones released in 2018 have a night mode, HONOR 8X steps a bit further and offers an Eye Comfort mode for nighttime reading.
According to HONOR, the Eye Comfort mode can help you fall asleep easier and reduce the eye-strain from reading in the dark. It can even be fine-tuned to cater to your preference. You'll find the relevant options in the Settings menu on the phone. Moreover, you can set a specific time in the day to indicate when you want the Eye Comfort mode to automatically switch on.
The Eye Comfort mode can reduce blue colors on the display. Blue colors are bright can cause eye-strain at night. When the Eye Comfort mode is on, the display becomes yellowish in color and warm in tone, making the light on your eyes softer. This not only helps you go to sleep faster, but also keeps your eyes from strain.
