Honor 6X There will be two variants. One will be equipped with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage and the other will have 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. We expect the 3GB RAM variant to be sold in India for less than Rs 15,000. Both the variants will be available in Grey, Silver and Gold color variants. We spent some time with the handset’s Chinese unit in Mumbai ahead of the CES announcement. Now we will share our experience with you. This smartphone has been made keeping in mind the youth. This phone has two rear cameras.
Honor 6X has a metal back panel. It has curved edges, but stains easily. The design of the front panel is such that the Honor 6X gives a feeling of being sturdy. Despite the 5.5-inch screen, there is no problem in using it with one hand. In this you will find onscreen Android navigation buttons. There is nothing wonderful in the design. But it looks good and gives a feeling of satisfaction.
The power and volume buttons on the right are easy to reach. The fingerprint sensor is on the back panel, just below the camera lens. The hybrid SIM tray is on the left. This means that you will be able to use only one of the other SIM and microSD card. A speaker and micro-USB port are at the bottom of the handset. And the 3.5mm audio socket is on the top.
Honor 6X runs on EMUI 4.1 which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. You will find many apps pre-installed. Because of this, the user interface gives a feeling of being a bit cluttered. At the same time, the custom icons and graphics have been kept very simple and polished. For this reason it is easier to use. The notification drawer is highly customized.
Performance is good. But we will give the final verdict only after doing the benchmark test. You will also get 3340 mAh battery.
The 5.5-inch full-HD screen is very sharp and saturated. Our experience with it was satisfactory. One sensor on the rear is of 12 megapixels and the other is of 2 megapixels. The second sensor will be used for depth sensing. With the help of this, the camera app of Honor 6X allows you to make various changes in photos after taking a photo. It works best in close up shots. We will tell in detail about the performance of the camera in the review.
Honor 6X will compete with many great phones, but it looks like this phone will also be popular. Wait for the Gadgets 360 review in which we take you through the pros and cons of the Honor 6X.
