Work Performance – PCMark

We tested the honor 5X’s performance using PCMark, which simulates work applications like web browing, playing video, writing text and editing photos.

The honor 5X (Amazon) is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor, but all that extra processing power does not matter much when it comes to basic work usage. It is only slightly faster than the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser which uses a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor.


Battery Performance – PCMark

We then tested the honor 5X’s battery performance using PCMark. It basically ran the PCMark work tests until its battery capacity dropped to 20%.

The honor 5X (Amazon) lasted just over 8.5 hours on the PCMark stress test. This is a stress test that simulates the worst possible workload using work apps. In our real world experience, we had no problem using it for 12-14 hours with light loads, although its battery life dropped to about 6.5 hours while playing games.

Battery Recharging Performance

The honor 5X has a large 3,000 mAh lithium-ion battery, but it does not have Fast Charging capability. In fact, it only comes with a 5 W travel charger. Even so, it was able to recharge its battery pretty quickly.

Our tests showed that the honor 5X (Amazon) will recharge from 19% to 100% in just over 170 minutes (2 hours 50 minutes).
