Huawei's online-only Honor range of smartphones has been developed and positioned as complementary to the parent company's more premium products. Naturally, it's targeted at developing markets such as India, and the phones have managed to generate enough buzz and attention to make Honor a significant player in the budget and mid-range smartphone segments in India.

Honor 5X Summary

The Honor 5X is the latest mid-range smartphone from Huawei's budget stable, and ticks all the boxes when it comes to functionality and features. It has a good screen, decent build and looks, a strong camera, good performance, and an excellent fingerprint sensor that does its job well. However, the phone has average battery life and annoying software. The phone unfortunately does not stand out in any way, but will appeal to users who want a functional, no-nonsense experience.

  • Good in Look, Bad in Health
    Saikat Rudra (Apr 25, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    My Honor 5x is less than one and a half years old, and suddenly its front screen panel has started swelling out. The seller guesses that its battery might be bloating. So I have abandoned it.

    Rishabh Kukreja (Jun 17, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    Its a good phone but ,any other phones are better than this phone for example: redmi note 3, coolpad note 3, intex aqua swift, and many other phones. In my opinion don't buy this. There are many phones which are far better than this phone in this price range...
