Huawei Honor 5X Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of Huawei Honor 5X at a Glance:-

Huawei is one of Top 5 Smartphone brand in this planet; they are continuously penetrating in Indian market especially with Honor series Smartphone.  Under mid range they have launched a No Nonsense handset Huawei Honor 5X with quite attractive features such as 5.5 inches IPS display, Snapdragon 616 octa-core 1.5 GHz processor, 13 and 5 MP camera, fingerprint-sensor, 16 GB RAM. 128 GB External SD card support, 2/3 GB RAM and 3000 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros and Cons of Huawei Honor 5X.

Body of Smartphone is built on the Aluminium while back covers top and bottom is made of plastic material, there is fingerprint sensor located just below the primary camera. Handset feels compact and slim in hand. Huawei made a great finishing by cutting the edge in a way that makes it more comfortable to hold.   The power and volume rocker keys are located on the right, SIM and microSD trays are on the left, 3.5mm socket is on the top, and Micro-USB port and speaker are at the bottom. 

5.5 inches display has the resolutions of 1080 x 1920 pixels with 401 ppi display density which is quite vibrant and reproduces vivid colours. There is a good balance between brightness and saturation of colours in display, it also has wide viewing angles and there is also a decent sunlight visibility.
Whole system is powered by the Qualcomm MSM8939v2 Snapdragon 616 processor that featuring eight cores and 1.5 GHz clock speed. The Huawei has its own one page UI by default which is pretty straight forward needs to be rejuvenated. There is little lag while switching between the apps but overall it doesn’t have effect on performance. Multitasking is smooth.
13 MP, f/2.0 camera is good for a mid ranger phone as it captures pretty decent photos although in lack of light camera sensor doesn’t perform great and photos look grainy. Front camera also performs well. camera focus is lazy takes time to focus but takes decent photos.
I don’t get any complaint against 3000 mAh battery as it can give battery backup of 24 hours in mixed use. It’s obvious that heavy user will get lesser backup.
