Huawei Honor 5x Review 2016

Huawei Honor 5x

Huawei is a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider and Huawei Honor 5X is a budget phone which have little bit all the things that you’ve been looking in a smartphone. Its comes with the 4G dual sim connectivity, New Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 SoC processor, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53, Fingerprint Scanner. Honor 5X comes in two variants White and dark grey, From my opinion the dark grey is the best.

One of the Huawei Honor 5X’s best features is the it has a metal body. The device finish looks and feels much more like plasticy than metal. Honor is trying  too hard to make the device look alike metal, but gone slightly backwards in the process. Part of the reason may also be the fact is that the phone doesn’t feel very  heavy.

Huawei Honor 5X comes with 1080p 5.5” display .It runs on the Android OS, v5.1.1 (Lollipop).Huawei gives a 13MP rear camera with dual led flash which actually captures descent photographs and at the front you get 5.0MP shooter which is really best for the selfie lovers.Here’s where the 5X falls up most. Camera specifications sounds good  and on the whole images look  very colourful and sharp, though not as sharp or detailed as other smartphones cameras’. It also struggled to  focus on people. Selfies likewise appear soft and cast a blue-grey wash on images taken indoors. The 5X’s lower-end processor is common for phones in this range and mostly gets you what you need, but sharp-eyed gamers may note a dip in speed.It has 16 GB of Internal memory and 2/3 GB of RAM and has 3000mAh battery which is not removable storage space is on the smaller side, but you’ll be able to expand it with a microSD card if you run out of room..

Huawei Honor 5X has the power and volume keys  on the right side, the 3.5mm socket is on the top, the SIM and microSD trays are on the left and the Micro-USB port and speaker are at the bottom. There are two grillesat bottom but only the one on the right actually have a speaker.

The best thing is there are two  separate trays for both SIMs as well as external  storage. One SIM tray can hold a Nano-SIM while the other is designed for a Micro-SIM. Both slots are 4G-enabled, so this offers a bit of flexibility to the user.Huawei Honor 5X_01


Honor 5x Overall Review


Decent design and build

Great display

Reliable performance

Excellent fingerprint sensor


Average battery life

Software can be annoying

No wow factor


At this time  the Honor has came forward into the smartwatch market with an Android Wear based device. Honor is another one of the big smartphone manufacturers from China.Huawei honor 5x budget smartphone with the high end like features is really praiseworthy and best buy in the price of 12,999.
