Review: Huawei Honor 6X

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

The Honor 6X is a bit uneven. There are things that stand out in both the "Pro" and "Con" columns, which means you're sacrificing something either way you look at it.

Pros include an attractive design, solid build, and good ease-of-use. The phone has incredible battery life, customizable software, and the cameras take decent photos and video. It's sold unlocked, and that allows you to use it on most any GSM/LTE carrier you choose.

The cons are hard to swallow. First, data performance wasn't great, and overall voice performance isn't what I want. The GPS radio was a bit wonky, as was Bluetooth performance. There are some usability problems with the Emotion UI skin that I found aggravating, and the Kirin 655 processor doesn't have quite enough horsepower for the handset.

These leave me conflicted about recommending the Honor 6X. If your priorities are its unlocked status, then perhaps find solace in the decent camera and above-average battery life. If you get impatient with slow data and make a lot of voice calls, however, the 6X is not for you.

The phone costs $250 from Huawei, but flash sales have been available once per week that drop the price to $200. The 6X makes sense to me at the lower price, but not the full cost.
