Honor 5X launched by Huawei was designated the phone of the year by CES due to its affordable price, solid specs and attractive design. So here is what you need to know about Honor 5X.
According to the specialists, Honor 5X is currently the best smartphone you can get for this money. The only issue is that the phone has a buggy interface and some small performance issues. The unlocked version of the phone costs only $199 and it looks a lot like the HTC One M9, mainly because of its square camera lens and its metal back that is brushed. As the metal built phones are hard to find at such low prices, the Honor 5X is really worth its money.
You can choose from a white, black or gold version of the phone. On the bottom edge of the phone there are dual speakers, a button power, volume buttons on the right side and a fingerprint scanner on the back. The fingerprint scanner is very efficient and fast. You can use combined SIM cards or separate ones.
Even though the 5.5 inch display has 401 pixels per every inch, as the iPhone 6s Plus has, the visibility is not very good in the direct sunlight. But you can adjust that by simply choosing the text brightness and color temperature you wish. The calling quality is very good and you can make calls even in the noisiest environments with the help of the earpiece volume.
The phone has a Snapdragon 615 processor and 2GB of RAM. The life of the battery can last for more than 5 hours when being used. The front camera has 5 megapixels and the rear one has 13 megapixels. The photos taken by this phone are surprisingly good and there is even a feature called Beauty Level, which allows you to even your skin tone.
The Honor 5X uses Android 5.0 Lollipop, but its software layer makes it resemble the iOS one. Like on the iOS smartphones, the apps are all arranged on the home screen and there is no app drawer. Even though it resembles iOS, the phone stock doesn’t run as smoothly as its competitor’s. The overall performance of the phone is decreased by the layer full of background processes. You can improve that with the help of gesture controls, floating docks, motion controls and navigation bar changes though. There are few preinstalled apps that you’ll have on the unlocked version like Shazam and Facebook. Even though the memory of the phone is a bit small, you can add a microSD card and you’ll have a much smoother experience. This is most of what you need to know about Honor 5X, which we highly recommend.
