Honor 5X review: Cheap without the compromise?

 

You might not know this but Huawei - the company that paired with Google last year to make the excellent Nexus 6P - has a sub-brand called Honor, which has just released a new budget phone. So, to recap: for £190 ($199) unlocked, you'll get a metal...

Metal back plate, 1080p 5.5-inch display, Nexus 6P-like fingerprint sensor, very affordable

Build quality, sluggish chipset, only 2GB RAM & 16GB storage, Honor’s EMUI 3.1 custom UI

So, to recap: for £190 ($199) unlocked, you'll get a metal build, 1080p 5.5-inch display, a Nexus 6P-like fingerprint sensor, decent battery life and an alright camera. That's the Honor 5X in a nutshell.

Honor 5X review

 

A premium phablet that's unbelievably cheap

Gorgeous display ; Decent battery life ; Strong processing power

Ugly UI ; Not a premium feel ; Lacking some features

All the normal problems of Huawei are present in this Honor phone, but there's a lot to love and for the price it's quite astonishing what the company has managed to achieve.

Honor 5X review

 

A metal phone with a fingerprint scanner for under £200? We take a look at the new Honor 5X budget smartphone.

The Honor 5X is another great value phone from Huawei's sub-brand. It offers excellent design and build with some solid specs too. It is missing some elements such as NFC and 11ac Wi-Fi so you might be better off spending a little more on the Honor 7,...

Honor 5X review

 

The Honor 5X is one of the cheapest phones to come with a fingerprint sensor, but its terrible camera and sluggish performance hold it back

Taken together, the Honor 5X just has one too many flaws to warrant a full recommendation. It might be one of the only phones you can buy under £200 with a fingerprint sensor, but for me it still can't beat the simplicity and superior build quality of...

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.

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.

Honor 5X Review: In Depth

 

Honor 5X review: This great-value 5.5-inch metal mobile costs just under £200 but packs some seriously impressive specs, to rival the likes of the Motorola...

Great price/performance balance ; Premium design elements ; Lightweight ; Good battery life

Unreliable connectivity ; Thick bezels ; Laggy performance

It’s important to remember that the Honor 5X costs just £189.99, which for a dual-SIM 4G phone with a Full HD screen and expandability up to 128GB is pretty enticing. Similarly-priced handsets include the Wileyfox Storm and the Samsung Galaxy A3, which...

Huawei Honor 5X review

  (Rating Hidden)

Huawei is hot on the heels of the likes of Samsung and LG, launching its Huawei Honor 5X as part of its attempt to steal market share from its rivals. With its low price, the 5X certainly seems like a tempting mobile phone. It offers decent battery...

A Honor Handset : Huawei Honor 5X

 

Huawei has added to its range of e-brand smartphones with the release of the Honor 5X handset. Described at the launch as being the most affordable premium smartphone of 2016 (admittedly at the time we were just 35 days into the year), the Honor 5X is...

The Honor 5X comes with a range of sensors. Including the fingerprint sensor, there is an accelerometer, proximity and compass. Bluetooth 4.1 with A2DP is provided. There is also support for MMS, email, Push Mail and IM. The Honor 5X is an attractively...

Great value and capable smartphone. Only weakness is the camera.

Honor 5X review

 

The cheapest Android phone yet with a fingerprint reader

Classy metal casing; Fingerprint reader at a low price; Fingerprint shortcuts; Lengthy battery life

Occasionally sluggish touchscreen; Aggravating Emotion UI

By no means a clean sweep, but this budget Android phone is still a surprisingly good bargain
