The Initial Setup

This video will show you the initial setup process when you power up the honor 5X (Amazon) for the first time. If you do not need to restore a backup, the whole setup process should take about 2.5 minutes. Note how fast it takes to register a fingerprint.


Available Memory & Storage

The honor 5X (Amazon) comes with 2 GB of memory of the LPDDR3 type. The Android OS takes up 467 MB, and the honor pre-loaded apps take up another 344 MB. After accounting for the cached processes, there is only 632 MB of free RAM to use. It would be helpful if honor can cut down on the background apps.

The honor 5X also comes with 16 GB of internal flash storage. This is expandable via a microSD card (up to 128 GB. Fresh out of the box, the honor 5X has just under 10.4 GB of available space (excluding the system files), of which 9.73 GB is free to use.

The main camera has a 13 MP sensor with a f/2.0 lens, supported by a single LED flash. The photos have a maximum resolution of 4160 x 3120 in the 4:3 format. If you prefer a wider format, the honor 5X will do that by cropping the image to 4160 x 2336 (16:9). It is capable of recording video in full HD quality (1080p).

The front camera boasts a 5 MP sensor with a f/2.4 wide-angle lens. It will deliver a maximum photo resolution of 2592 x 1944 in the 4:3 format. Again, a wider 16:9 format will crop that to 2592 x 1456. It will record videos in 720p quality.

For a smartphone in this price category, the honor 5X (Amazon) comes with a pretty decent set of cameras. We will examine its photographic and video recording performance later in the next page.
