I've got an oukitel k9 with similar specs. Great phone for browsing.
i bought the Honor 8X in nov 2018, even now its still brilliant, ive got 3 friends who bought it too after seeing mine, 60 day delivery time!
Also the option of 6/128 configuration for approx £45 more
FWIW I have a mi max 3 and love it, huge screen, incredible battery, was £150 delivered when I bought it last year.
My colleague brought this phone by accident last year when I told him to buy the Honor 8X (none MAX version, as it the budget he specified and requirements fit this phone nicely) from Argos or equivalent. But he went onto eBay instead and being not too technically minded on details he failed to notice the MAX word in the item listing, but the price was similar, so he went for it. Regardless, it came, and it pretty much matches my Mate 20x in size. One thing I would like to make people aware of though, is that while it did come with Google stuff installed (phones from China, unless international versions, don't have this), when he had to perform a system update (I forget but I believe at the time it was an Android OS update) it rendered all installed Google apps broken. He asked me for help and guidance, and in the end I had to uninstall all current Google apps and then looked up a guide on the internet to load it back in again. Not too difficult, but if you're not of the technical type it can be a minor bit distressing. But it is otherwise a very good big screen phone and probably the only other decent one in the 7+ inch category.
