You may have heard of this smartphone and if you had not, please do, because it’s not your average budget range smartphone. It’s more than that and it’s Honor 6X. I have been using this device for over 2 weeks now and it’s time to tell people how it actually is. Let’s get started with my review. 🙂[ Note*: Before that, let me tell you that this article IS NOT SPONSORED and all the information given is my Experience of 2 weeks and everything written is TRUE! ]
Let’s start with pricing first. Specs and all is okay but in the end all that matters is price. So you get this device for about 12,999 INR and $250. Yes, it’s cheaper in India than in USA.
3GB RAM/32 GB Storage – 12,999 INR
4 GB RAM/64 GB Storage – 15,999 INR
Let’s start with specs.
So w get a 5.5 inch 1080 x 1920 pixel screen with about 403 pixels per inch. It is IPS LCD screen, nothing to fancy but the screen does look premium. It’s not corning gorilla or something and you may damage it, so I prefer using a back cover panel. It has a screen to body ratio of 71.8% and it’s chin is not too wide. It has a fingerprint sensor and dual cameras and fingerprint sensor at back is pretty fast and is accurate. In my 2 week’s time, it performed well. We also have a micro USB, speaker grill on the right side and microphone on left side on the bottom side of the phone. We have 3.5 mm headphone jack at the top, volume rockers and power button on the right and sim card tray on the left. It is 8.2 mm thick and 162 g but it does feel little hefty.
Currently Honor 6X runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 and company has promised to update it Android Nougat 7.0 in coming March. It runs on Kirin 655 chipset which is company’s own chipset and Emotion UI 4.0 which is also Honor’s own and is therefore highly customizable and 5.0 updates are already being given. It has a Octa-core processor clocked at (4×2.1 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.7 GHz Cortex-A53) and sports a Mali-T830MP2.
We have a dual 12MP+2MP camera on the back which is the greatest feature of this smartphone and what makes it a perfect bu at this price range. It has all the modes some includes, HDR mode, beauty mode, panorama, time lapse and good food. We also have a 8MP camera at the front which is pretty good. The inbuilt microphone you get with this device is just the best in this range. It’s better than most of the phones I have ever seen. You can easily use this device for vlogging with no extra equipment. Photos are pretty crisp and depth of field is great as well.
It shoots videos at 1080Px and colors are pretty accurate. 😉
In my 2 weeks time , I have used it quite heavily and never ever it got below 20% . I tried heavy gaming with Asphalt 8 and Nova 3 and it still had 15-20% of juice left.
So, we know that this device is highly customizational even without installing a third party launcher. We get color correction mode and eye comfort mode which I personally use a lot. 🙂
RAM management is pretty good on this device and even after opening all the apps I have, I still had over 900 MB of RAM left which also means other apps performed well and had almost all the apps in its memory. We can also customize notification panel and install shortcuts on the few.
Overall, this has been pretty fantastic phone and I really loved using it.
I rate this phone about a 8.5/10 because all its lack is OIS.
