Huawei Honor 5X (gold)

 

One of the Honor 5X's best assets is the fingerprint reader on its back, which is accurate and easy to use. The phone is also more attractive than you'd expect for its $200 price tag, which converts to about £135 and AU$275. Handling its formidable...

The Honor 5X has a nice metal build, accurate fingerprint reader and lots of expandable storage. It's much cheaper than almost-identical Huawei GX8.

There's minimal internal storage space, and some minor camera flaws with color and focus.

Huawei's Honor 5X is a great deal for budget-phone seekers.

Huawei's Honor 5X is a good, no-fuss phone (review)

 

You make some sacrifices in the camera department, but otherwise, this low-cost Android handset gives you plenty for your money.

Huawei Honor 5X (Unlocked)

 

The Huawei Honor 5X is the best looking affordable unlocked phone you can buy, but it's held back by an obtrusive UI and some performance issues.

Affordable. Attractive metal design. Good camera. Expandable memory and dual SIM slots.

Performance issues in testing. Heavy, buggy UI layer.

Software, Pricing, and Conclusions The 5X is running Android 5.0 Lollipop, but Huawei's EMUI 3.1 software layer is designed to make it look more like iOS. There's no app drawer, so all of your apps are arranged on the home screen, like iOS. And most of...

The Huawei Honor 5X Review: Mid-Range Meets Maturity

 

Late last year Huawei introduced the Honor 5X, a phone branded and sold under their Honor sub brand for their home Chinese market. A few months later, the company announced that it would be the first Honor branded smartphone to launch in the United...

In the end the Honor 5X offers you a lot for your money, and so it fulfills its expected role quite well. You get a nice display, good internal hardware relative to the price, a metal chassis, a good fingerprint scanner, and a good camera. For $199 it...

Honor 5X Smartphone Review

 

Direct metal. Huawei's direct marketing brand Honor is always good for a bargain. We have the Honor 5X with a metal body and high-quality cameras in our lab this time. Let us see whether the smartphone's details are also convincing.

high-quality metal casing ; good price-performance ratio ; compelling battery life in WiFi test ; moderate temperature development ; bright screen ; good and stylish software ; decent camera configuration ; dual-SIM ; fingerprint scanner with...

middling GPS reception ; poor call quality ; speaker's low quality ; high load consumption ; short battery life under load

Huawei has in fact compiled a decent package. A high-performance device wrapped up in a classy casing, and all that at a great price. The software is stylish and practical, the cameras shoot decent pictures and a full-sized 24-month warranty is also...

Huawei GR5 review: Pretty, but not so nice on the inside

 

In many ways, Huawei is a brand without an identity in Canada, though the company has invested fairly heavily in the country, particularly in selling network equipment to the carriers. Its best phones under the Mate and P lines never see the light of...

Pretty unibody exterior

Underpowered processor ; Better mid-range devices out there ; No stock Android

Huawei Honor 5X: Hitting the Mid Range Sweet Spot for $199 [Review]

 

Over the past couple of years the mid-range market has been heating up. Particularly with international companies getting their fix in the United States. Some have taken the usual approach of releasing a mid ranger while others have gone through code...

Even with the absent of 5GHZ WiFi, painful battery charging and iPhone familiar software, the Honor 5X by Huawei is a well-built piece of machinery at $199.99. It has a nice metallic feel to it, and holds decent specs with nice processing power to...

Honor 5X Review: Huawei's attempt to elevate average

 

Huawei's Honor 5X is a middle of the road handset that offers the luxury of a metal frame and other high-end amenities. But can it succeed in offering a premium experience for $200?

Honor 5X review

 

If your budget is mid-range but your aspirations are premium, then the Honor 5X from Huawei could be a good choice. Avoid the frustrations and compromises normally involved in selecting a mid-range smartphone, with this premium-designed handset. Packed...

This is the second Honor phone for us to review, and we've been impressed once again. Huawei really does seem to deliver on its promise of a premium product on a budget. Asked by brent from uk on 11th Aug 2016 Honor 5x v 5c Apart from the size, what...
