Honor 6X In-Depth Review
Huawei sub brand Honor is going to launch the Honor 6X in India on the 26th of January. And, here we have the full In-Depth review for you, so that you can decide if you should buy it or just let it be.
The Honor 6X will receive a lot of good press as Honor has given away a lot of swag including free exotic trips, The 6X, etc. to the media so that they receive very good reviews but to be honest it is just a one gimmick smartphone which is its dual camera.there are two versions of the 6X: one with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM, and one with 32GB and 3GB. And here we have the full review of the smartphone for you and this will help you make the decision if the Honor 6X is worth your hard earned money or not.
The Honor 6X is not much on the looks, we feel they should have given a full aluminium body. Though the weight and size of the smartphone is easily manageable. 4 colors are offered which are metallic grey, silver, blue, and gold namely.
The Honor 6X has a 5.5″ screen upfront, a 3.5mm headphone jack on top, power key and volume rocker on the right, also on top you will find the dual hybrid SIM tray, on the back you find the dual camera setup with the fingerprint sensor, and on the bottom you find the speaker grill, microphone and the micro-usb port.
The bezel is a lot on the phone and to be frank could be lower, though the speakers are bottom firing they are terrible and crack when you hear at loud volumes.
Camera is the only high point of the Honor 6X, both the front and back cameras are great. The front camera is an 8MP shooter with beautification feature. The primary camera is a 12MP and a 2MP dual camera setup where the 2MP is a black and white camera. Also with a dual camera you can adjust the depth of feel.
Dual Camera phones have become a force of nature these days as each and every phone is coming out with these. And, this is one of the better ones, as Huawei has been one of the better dual camera smartphone manufacturer and they are bringing this technology here also.
The Honor 6X is a good phone with great battery, but the Emotion UI or the EMUI 4.1 is as bad as it could ever be, with bad software design and loads of bloatware. Simply i cannot stand the Honor skin and have to change it as soon as possible with the google launcher. Moreover the 6X doesn’t ship with pre-loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat which is a big disappointment. But, they have promised an update through OTA in the coming months.
Honor 6X comes with a 3340mAh battery which performs really good, and lives up to the Honor brand name. 6X is one of the better smartphones for battery, as it is very well optimized and gives 1 full day of heavy usage which is very impressive.
The Honor 6X with a battery life of 1 day on heavy usage, and charges really fast with fast charging available on the phone. Though the charger included is said to be a fast charger but is not one, and we would suggest you get a proper one from some other brand to actually use the fast charging capabilities of the phone.
The Honor 6X 3GB RAM/ 32GB Storage priced at ₹12,999 and the Honor 6X 4GB RAM/ 64GB Storage priced at ₹15,999 in India will be available through flash sales available from 2nd Feb, 2017.
- Great Camera Setup
- Good Battery Life
- Great Price
- Very Disappointing Display
- No Android 7.0 out of the box
- Really Bad Skin
- Not full metal body
Honor has created a good smartphone at a low price point. But, we feel that they could have provided more in the price point. And you will see good reviews of the Honor 6X due to them taking the press to exotic destinations and giving out free swag like phones, etc. but to tell you the truth the phone is nothing in comparison to other options available in the market, and you can buy a much better smartphone at this price. The Honor 6X is just a one gimmick phone which is its dual camera.
