Honor 5X

The Honor 5x is a smartphone designed for the mid-range market. Its brush metal finish looks elegant. The smartphone comes with a 5.5 inch 1080p touchscreen and even has a fingerprint unlock feature, which are increasingly common in current generation smartphones. The Android Lolipop v5.1.1 system features a 1.2 GHz quad core SoC with Adreno 405 GPU. The internal storage is a mere 16 GB. However, the storage capacity is expandable up to 128 GB via the microSD slot. The 3000 mAh battery can last about 30 hours of call time and 10 hours of internet browsing. The Honor 5x comes in a choice of three colors; silver, gold, and gray. The 13 MP rear camera shoots great stills and videos, while the 5 MP front shooter takes excellent wide angle shots. As this phone supports dual sim, users can pick which SIM would be used for data and calls. As an added feature, the noise cancellation mic gives phone calls a louder feel. As a final note, the Honor 5x is an excellent smartphone for the given price range. It is an amazing choice for a teenager's first phone or an adult's second phone

83.5% Honor 5X Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Direct metal. Huawei's direct marketing brand Honor is always good for a bargain. We have the Honor 5X with a metal body and high-quality cameras in our lab this time. Let us see whether the smartphone's details are also convincing.
70% Review: Huawei Honor 5X
Source: Wired Magazine English
The camera is surprisingly good, too, much better than the average budget phone. In good lighting, the 13-megapixel sensor with its f/2.0-aperture 28 mm wide angle lens is easily as good as many mid-to-high end smartphones like Moto X, OnePlus 3, and the “other” 5X: the Google Nexus 5X. In indoor or low light conditions, the phone produces mostly decent shots that are occasionally disappointing.

Battery life is great, at 14 hours of total run time since unplug, I manage to squeeze a total of 4.5 hours of screen on time out of the 3000mAh battery from the 5X. That is achieved without any app optimization.

Source: Techradar English
The Honor 5X is a cheaper version of the Huaiwe Mate 8. It may not have the same premium feel or strong camera, but the 5X does have a number of the same key features and a much lower price tag. For a sub £200 (sub US$200) phone, it's quite amazing what Honor has managed to achieve and if you're looking for something that will compete with the high-end flagships, but not cost anywhere near as much, the 5X is a great choice.

The Honor 5X is not meant for those who are looking at a clean OS, for them the Moto G Turbo is the best option at Rs 12,499. The LeEco Le 1s at Rs 10,999 is another competitor but we had faced call quality issues with that phone, which is non-existent in the Honor 5X. We have to yet review the Lenovo K4 Note which is also Rs 1,000 less. So wait for that review if you want to know which one offers a better value proposition.

80% Budget smartphone has metal design, fingerprint scanner and 13Mp camera for under £200
Source: PC Advisor English
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, especially now it's dropped to £209 (on offer). Software is once again not a strong point with EMUI still not convincing us as a top Android skin so take a look at some cheaper devices like the Moto G, too.

90% Honor 5X – Review
Source: Cool Smartphone English
The Honor 5X is undoubtedly great value for money: you get a lot of bang for your pound. Honor have made a revolutionary step forward with the 5X compared to its predecessor, the 4X. The full metal body, excellent screen and good battery life are all things you would expect from competing flagships. I would say the only weak point of the device is the overall camera performance, but it is still on a par with competitors in the same price range.

Swishy fingerprint tech for the mid-range
Source: Reg Hardware English
Huawei's Honor 5X doesn't change the winning formula much, and until the Xiaomi Mi5 arrives in Western markets (offering, we are told, 2016 flagship specs at for around £30 more), the 5X offers the best value for the 'Droid buyer. Your main problem will be getting one: Huawei is still struggling to meet demand, and it's often labelled "sold out" on the company's own VMall online store. Amazon stocks ropey Chinese imports (particularly, "Play" editions with 3GB) that won't have support or European customisations, so caveat emptor.

Source: Pocketnow English
The competition at this price point is heating up. We’ve compared the Honor 5X to the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, we recently we reviewed the Oppo F1, and a Moto G is always a safe bet at this tier. Still there’s a charm here. To answer the question posed at the top of this review, this phone does raise the bar on the build quality we should expect from manufacturers. Huawei is bringing something unique to the budget crowd. For the savvier folks in our audience, a few software tweaks can really polish up the experience. However the Honor wouldn’t be our first pick for general smartphone shoppers.

60% Top value, but can it dethrone the Moto G?
Source: PC Pro English
Overall, the Honor 5X is a decent budget smartphone that, aside from its irritating Android skin, offers a tempting alternative to the market leaders at this price. It isn't the most exciting phone you'll come across this year, but its low price, large screen size and, in particular, that fingerprint reader, means it sits in a class of its own at this price. If Honor can follow this up with decent battery life, it’ll have yet another solid Android offering on its hands.

Huawei Honor 5X review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Honor 5X could be the best phone you could get for $200. At least in the US, as there aren't as many offerings in the mid-range 5.5-inch space. We like how Honor is pushing itself into the US market which is quite difficult to do especially in the mobile industry. From here we'd like to see both Honor and Huawei make a larger presence in the US to compete with the big guys in the US like Samsung, Apple, and LG.

But it’s once again let down by Huawei's EMUI software. By once again bundling the Honor 5X with Huawei’s skin, Honor has significantly damaged the 5X’s overall appeal. The skin makes the phone’s user interface feel unintuitve and brings with it both bloatware and bugs. The skin also makes it highly unlikely the phone will receive updates to future Android versions – though I may be proven wrong on this.

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 the 3rd Gen Moto G. There's also the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua to consider, which is slightly smaller than the Honor 5X, but has a very similar chipset, takes better pictures and has the added benefit of being waterproof for only £180 SIM-free. In this case, the M4 Aqua is by far the better value smartphone in this price range, but those after something cheaper and more compact should stick with the Moto G.

Ultimately though, it’s impossible not to give the Honor 5X a qualified thumbs up, for the target market. It’s iPhone-like, premium build, yet Android and mass market, it’s secure and fast enough and foolproof enough. And it doesn’t cost the earth, and is officially distributed and supported in Western markets at dramatically less than most of the competition. No one reading this is going to lust after the 5X, but you might very well be eyeing it up for your significant other or teenage kids. And they’ll thank you for it.

80% The Budget Phone to Beat
Source: Tom's Guide English
It's hard to find a better phone for the price than the Honor 5X. For just $200, the Honor 5X squeezes an all-day battery, a useful fingerprint sensor and good cameras into a solid, all-metal body. I love the clever use of the fingerprint sensor for shortcuts, and the surprisingly speedy performance. Android purists may not like the heavy-handed EMUI skin, but I'm happy to install a different theme over it.

Review: The Huawei Honor 5X -- a lot for a low price
Source: Computerworld.com English
The Honor 5X is not premium hardware, but represents a more than credible value in a phone. Honor's tagline is "For the Brave," which is a little unfortunate, because it implies that buying the product is something of a risk. But if you can't afford -- or just don't want to pay for -- the top of the line, the Honor 5X is a more than reasonable option. Be not afraid.

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 certainly feature elements that out-perform the 5X in one area or another, but don't serve as the perfect alternative.

80% Cheap without the compromise?

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. But you'll also get the meh Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, backed by 2GB RAM, which doesn't always result in the most fluid of user experiences (confusingly there's a slightly higher-end and pricier 3GB RAM version available too). And 16GB of local storage is low, despite microSD storage meaning expansion to 128GB is possible.

80% Honor 5X Review
Source: Android Authority English
So there you have it for this in-depth look at the honor 5X! Priced at just $200, the honor 5X is definitely a great buy, and is one of the only phone at this price point to offer both a premium metal build and a fingerprint scanner, aspects that are usually found with devices priced at more than double what the honor 5X costs. These two things alone make the phone a great bargain, but add to the mix a great display experience and a feature packed software package, and it is difficult to not recommend the honor 5X. Granted, the device isn’t flawless, with its mediocre camera and speaker, and somewhat sluggish performance, but its very affordable price tag more than makes up for any issues the phone may have.

The Honor 5X is a sensible mid-range smartphone that checks all the right boxes. It's built well, looks acceptable, has all the right connectivity options, and has a decent camera too. Additionally, it's got an excellent screen and useful fingerprint sensor that does a lot more than most competitors' offerings. The Honor 5X is also reliable and smooth in operation. The only real shortcomings are annoying software and slightly sub-par battery life, but these are easily forgivable when you consider the overall package.

The Huawei Honor 5X is supposed to get a future update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which might fix some of its performance issues. But in its current state, it's difficult to recommend over the Blu Life One X, which is $50 less expensive and performs better all-around. The Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 is another solid option for the price. Neither phone looks quite as nice as the Honor 5X, but both offer a more refined experience.

A wise man once told me that no matter what you do in life, everything is a trade-off. There’s probably no greater example of this than the honor 5X. Manufacturers are always striving to cram as much hardware as they can into a device, while ensuring they can still offer up their phones at a competitive price. Once that price drops down to $200, you’d expect only a bare-bones smartphone, but the honor 5X smashed those conventions. They showed us that you don’t need to cut all the corners, just the right ones. While we don’t particularly agree with all the sacrifices made on the honor 5X, there’s no denying for a vast majority of folks, there is an insane value here.

The strategy is simple with this one. Essentially, honor is the first out of the gate to set the bar for what we expect out of phones in the mid-range category this year – and the honor 5X surely raises some brows in the process. Combing over the phone specs, while also being mindful about its full retail cost of $200, there’s certainly a lot going for this phone.

The Honor 5X may not be a high-end, expensive device, but for what it does offer it’s a huge steal. The real kicker will be whether Huawei can get its marketing chops behind it and convince everyone else in America that it’s worth choosing over an older, refurbished Samsung or LG device.

It's an honor. A superb screen and decent camera wrapped in a metal casing – with a price of under 200 Euros (~$223), the Honor 5C makes a big impression. This review reveals whether the 5.2-inch smartphone is really that great.

As with all modern phones it has front and back cameras the front often called a Selfie camera is a respectable 8MP while the rear camera is mounted 1.5cm down from the top of the back and has an LED flash by its side. The camera resolution is 13MP and takes good images but not up to the superb standard of the Huawei P9 but then the unit costs only 1/3 of the price.

If you're looking for a phone with a bit of high-end flavour on a super-tight budget, the Honor 5C is an excellent choice. As long as you don't mind the Honor software approach, there's nothing major to complain about here. The main consideration is whether you might prefer the Moto G4, which costs £20 more but has a bigger screen, and a very pure take on Android.

For RM799, the Honor 5C is a perfectly decent mid-range smartphone that does almost everything you need out of it. However, the problem the Honor 5C has is that its just not that interesting as a whole. There are no particularly standout features about the phone that makes the Honor 5C a must buy, and in a market that is highly saturated, the Honor 5C could potentially be lost in the shuffle.

I was a bit worried taking a punt on this device. I normally recommend a Moto G for people in this segment and had the G4 been smaller, I would’ve bought that for my mother without any hesitation. But this phone really surprised me. Frankly this is the best budget phone on the market now. Sure, as a phone-nerd it doesnt have the features and power that I want for all the things I do with my phone. But for a lot of people, it really is all the phone they’d ever need. Everyday tasks are done easily with good performance, a good screen, good battery life, decent camera and a surprisingly enjoyable software experience.

Nevertheless, the Honor 5C is a decent entry-level phone with a few standout features — solid, multi-day battery life, a touch of class with that metal back panel, expandable storage and easy dual-SIM connectivity. And if you're looking for an affordable Android phone which covers all the major bases, it's definitely worth a look.

Nevertheless, the Honor 5C is a decent entry-level phone with a few standout features — solid, multi-day battery life, a touch of class with that metal back panel, expandable storage and easy dual-SIM connectivity. And if you're looking for an affordable Android phone which covers all the major bases, it's definitely worth a look.

60% Honor 5C review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Honor 5C excels when it comes to speed, but fails to excel in any other regard. Even its camera, which is arguably the phone's only other strong suit, is rather hit and miss depending on lighting conditions. The biggest issue here, though, is the quality of the competition. When you consider that the Moto G4 costs just £20 more yet comes with a better screen, longer-lasting battery and vastly superior build quality, the Honor 5C simply can't compete.

76% Huawei Honor 5C Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Honor 5C is a good smartphone that gets a lot right, but unfortunately, does not really have anything that sets it apart in competition. It offers good performance, camera, ergonomics, battery life, and is an overall pleasant device. The lack of frills make it a very simple, easy to use and convenient device, and is worthy of being considered at Rs. 10,999.

Despite quite a lot being written about the 13MP and 8MP cameras on the 5C, I found them a bit wanting. They do both shoot video at 1080p, and there's anF2.0 aperture and 78° wide-angle 5-element (5P) macro lens, but I found photos ready to pixelate under many conditions. Image reproduction was good, but the fuzziness and noise set the camera at standard average budget for me. The camera app, on the other hand, is rather nice and easy to use.

70% A well-balanced device that lacks any defining quality
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Honor 5C offers a blend of good design, appealing UI and a capable hardware. It is definitely a good update over its predecessor, the Honor 4C, and feels as good as the Honor 5X. There are minor software issues but nothing that a quick update can’t fix. Having said that, the smartphone doesn’t offer anything unique or a differentiating factor that would set it apart from the competition. It’s a plain Jane phone which will struggle to survive in the market. The only reason one might just go for the Honor 5C is for its smaller display, as there are some consumers who don’t want to go beyond the 5.0-5.2 inch screen size.

The Honor 5C presents itself as an unassuming, middling Android handset, but you’ll quickly realise that it’s full of surprises. Great performance, battery life and cameras elevated the 5C above our expectations and at £149 it undercuts other top affordable offerings like the new Moto G4 giving it a serious edge.

Honor 5c Review
Source: Androidbeat English
The Honor 5c is Huawei’s second entrant into the rapidly growing sub-15k smartphone segment in India. The handset does a lot of things right that the Honor 5x got wrong – especially with respect to software and performance. However, I cannot help but feel that Honor/Huawei should have also launched a 32GB/3GB RAM variant of the 5c at a slightly higher price as it would have then better sufficed the needs of customers who want a phone with dual-SIM capabilities. The sub-par GPU and multitasking performance also immediately rule out the phone for any power user.

Unboxing & Review: honor 5C

Apart from the SoC efficiency, the battery life is also affected by the smart app & battery management under EMUI and they're not so smart if you left it in default. The OS would automatically choose which app is more critical and set it as "protected" app which allows it to run after the screen is turned off.

iPhone 5C vs Honor 5C head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
The Honor 5C is a mid-tier phone through and through. If we cast our minds back to 2013 we could almost say the same of the iPhone 5C. It was placed just below the more powerful 5S, and both served as updates to the ageing iPhone 5. Ultimately, either would make a great second, standby handset. The choice might be easier to make if you're tied to one ecosystem, but if we have one concern it would be the age of the iPhone 5C.

70% Honor 5C Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Honor 5C improves ever so slightly on its predecessor, thanks to a more capable SoC and small improvements to the camera. The design and build have also been bettered, and Android Marshmallow adds a few features and tweaks to the software. There isn't much to complain about here, especially at this price. Unfortunately, the 5C still lacks any wow factor. Nothing in the phone stands out, and this is in all ways an average phone that does what it does capably, but not exceptionally well. The pricing is competitive, but a lower price would have suited this phone much more. Buyers are likely to prefer other products in the same price range, such as the Redmi Note 3 or Lenovo Zuk Z1.

Honor 5C
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Honor 5C is undeniably excellent value for money as a piece of hardware. It has internal specs that match, if not beat, the Moto G4's. But its use of Huawei’s Emotion skin will be a sticking point for many buyers. I can’t help but feel Honor should follow Motorola’s example and load its handsets with an unskinned version of Android.

Honor 5C hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
The Honor 5C looks set to be a cracking deal for £150, falling in between the £116 Vodafone Ultra 6 and £170 Moto G4. With a metal build, G4-matching specs, and a price that won’t destroy your wallet, Honor could have a real winner on its hands here. Stay tuned for our full review, to see if we’ll be crowning it our new budget smartphone champion.

Affordable phone of the year?
Source: Pocket Lint English
For the low asking price of £149, you really do get quite a lot of phone for your money in the Honor 5C. That's the aim of Honor - giving good value for money without making too many compromises. The only real omission on the spec sheet is the lack of a fingerprint scanner. With most devices offering this technology, both in the top and mid ranges, it would have been more appealing if that had been offered.

Honor 5A review - Budget enough for anyone with a few nice surprises
Source: Tech Nave English
Overall, we think the Honor 5A is just average at best. For an RM599 smartphone, it's quite impresive that it can play games likes Asphalt 8: Airborne without burning out, battery performance is pretty good and it has a nice design. The foodies are going to love the Good Food mode for their Instagram collection too, especially if they add on a 128GB microSD card.
