Huawei is a leading tech giant for more than a decade come up with new device better in look, feel & performance. This may not be the as usual review as we are not going to drop the full phones specification here. Am just going to share my experience with Huawei Honor after a two weeks of regular use.

Performance

1. Apps

Combo of 64 bit octa core processor and 2 gb of RAM to maximize its performance without any lag even opening a multiple apps or switching in between frequently. I really do love the smooth performance and highly responsive experience of this Honor 5X.

2. Games

It hold a quite good screen size for playing the games. Honor 5X have the capability to run the 3D games seamlessly with PC grade GPU. Had a good experience on playing a highly graphic game like Asphalt 8: Airborne without any lag. The response time also good even while playing the high end games.

Camera

Apart from the apps and games the next thing I admire is the camera performance. Honor 5X is equipped with 13MP camera as Primary and 5MP as Secondary and its has a good clarity. Honor 5X seems as a beast at this, if you love taking more pictures this phone will be a best choice.

Not only MP matters in camera performance there are lot more things need to be considered. SmartImage 3.0 image processor ensures the better clarity in every clicks. More than the clarity, Honor 5X had lots of unique features like new shooting modes such as ultra-snapshot, watermarks, object tracking, food mode (special mode for food items) and more. Under low lighting Honors 5X performance was good as it has anti glare & IR filters. Beauty mode will be the best partner for selfie lovers.

Really a fast, accurate and responsive finger print scanner it is equipped with. It unlocks the device within 0.5 second, its pretty fast and also we can assign gesture to the fingerprint scanner to do few actions like turn picture, lock apps, open apps and more. This feature makes this phone to stand out of the fingerprint feature phone crowd.

User Interface

Honor 5X run on EMUI 3.1 which have lot of features like app privacy, hide a home screen, open app by drawing shape etc. The interface looks great and smooth I’m sure this UI will not make you bore and the experience of handling the Honor 5X with EMUI is good. Themes are rolling out soon in coming updates. Sometimes it lags,  but Hope they fix in the next update.

I will rate it 3.7 in the scale of 5 for its money value. Honor 5X with all this features and premium build quality only priced in midrange. This phone suits your day to day life without trouble.
