Thanks to the HiSIlicon Kirin 655 processor, the Honor 6X blazes through normal apps like it is designed to be a faster processor. The eight cores certainly helps in this regards, as well as the 3GBs of RAM. The combination of two ensures that the phone does not feel laggy – even while playing intensive games on the go. Plus, you get an eight-core processer at this price! A steal!.
Dual camera magic
Not only you get a very decent 8-megapixel camera sensor at the front for (almost) flawless selfies, the dual camera sensor at the back gives you a different take on mobile photography than before. The 12-megapixel sensor takes the image, while the secondary 2-megapxiel sensor records depth information – so you can emulate lens bokeh in the phone! Artsy images here we come.
Large screen entertainment
The large 5.5-inch full HD display on the front means that every multimedia file you have stored in the phone will look gorgeous and expansive, thanks to the large screen. While it is no AMOLED display, the IPS panel reproduces colour vibrantly and consistently – making it a dream using it even in the bright sunlight.
1 – Not so futureproof
Unfortunately Honor decided to still use the standard microUSB for power and data – no USB Type-C here.
2 – Tap to unlock
Honor 6X has one of the fastest fingerprint scanner – just tap and in 0.2 seconds it unlocks!
3 – Metal build
Even at its price, Honor opted to build the phone in metal. Very classy.
