Huawei’s latest Honor series handset, the Honor 6X, recently went on Sale in India with the price starting at 12,999 INR. In the pilot flash sale, held on February 2, the handset received an overwhelming response and ran out of stock in a matter of minutes. This great success in itself speaks volume about the exciting product that Huawei has built and the astonishingly competitive price that it’s selling it for.
At first glance, the dual camera setup on the rear of Honor 6X will instantly seize your attention. But from the moment you hold the handset in your hand and power it on, you will realize that the Honor 6X experience goes way beyond the fabulous camera that it offers.
The elegantly crafted handset flaunts a satin finish Aluminum unibody design. The back tastefully curves towards the side edges which gives the device a solid grip. The region surrounding the dual camera has a rugged texture that compliments the design well. Right below the dual camera capsule you will find a fingerprint sensor that’s extremely fast and can be used to a lot more than just unlocking the phone.
You can use it to scroll through web pages, pull quick notification shade, to click selfies or even to swipe through the gallery app.
On the front, Honor 6X’s vivid 5.5-inch Full HD LTPS display dominates. It is a gorgeous display with punchy colors, optimum brightness, and wide viewing angles that is very well suited for consuming multimedia content. The EMUI software also allows you to effectively change color and temperature profile rather conveniently. So, you can always tune it in line with your personal taste.
On the inside, there is the powerful 16nm process based Kirin 655 octa-core chipset paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. In our time with the handset, we tried to push the chipset to its limits by loading several heavy apps simultaneously, and the processor could easily sail through all of it without any visible stutter or rise in temperature. All classes of users will find the Honor 6X performance to be perfectly adequate.
Also, the power efficient Kirin 655 chipset and the well optimized EMUI 4.1 software running on Honor 6X ensures that the 3340mAh battery housed within lasts for about two days even with moderate to heavy usage.
The 12MP rear camera is paired with a 2MP depth of field sensor and together they can be used to add artistic DSLR-like bokeh effects in clicked images. The camera delivers surprisingly great low light performance and comes loaded with a variety of shooting modes like low light, HDR, light trail, etc. that make using the camera app a really fun experience. A very robust Pro mode on the phone also grants granular control over image capturing parameters like ISO, color temperature, and shutter speed. This can help you get more out of each shot.
Overall, the Honor 6X impresses in all sphere which ultimately results in highly gratifying smartphone experience and that is what makes Honor 6X the best smartphone in its class. Its staunch competitors, on the other hand, do a few things right and heavily miss the mark with others, and thus don’t deliver in spite of similar on paper hardware specifications.
