Our Verdict On The honor 5X
After testing the honor 5X (Amazon), we can see why everyone’s raving about it. The honor 5X doesn’t waste effort on being the thinnest or the lightest. It just delivers a solid set of core features at a very affordable price point.
Large full HD display? Check.
Metal alloy body? Check.
Octa-core processor? Check.
Dual SIM with microSD card expansion? Check.
Decent cameras with 1080p video recording? Check.
It only has one fancy feature – a fingerprint sensor, and honor nailed its implementation. It’s very fast and accurate. In fact, it will become second nature to instantly turn on and log into the honor 5X by simply touching the fingerprint sensor with a registered finger.
We would like to applaud honor’s decision to support both micro and nano SIM cards. This may not seem important to everyone, but this may save a trip to the telco for those who are upgrading from another smartphone. We should also point out that you can use both SIM cards together with a microSD card for extra storage. [adrotate banner=”4″]We also like the large 3,000 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery. It lasted a solid 8.5 hours of non-stop benchmarking on PCMark. In real world usage, it should have no issues lasting 12-14 hours of non-stop use.
For the next version of the honor 5X, we would like to see a better camera sensor and a dual-tone LED flash. That would allow it to really shine in its photographic capabilities. We would also like it if honor would add scratch-resistant glass protection (with an oleophobic coating).
Overall, the honor 5X (Amazon) is a no-nonsense Android smartphone with a focus on practical features. If you want something that is sleek, not flashy; with only the features that matter, you can’t go wrong with the honor 5X.
