Honor 6X review


Honor updates one of its best to Android Nougat

Premium build ; Gorgeous, large display ; Powerful processor set up

No USB-C ; Limited storage options

Honor has cemented itself as one of the world's best budget phone makers with the Honor 6X, but a few little problems still hold it back from the perfect five-star review.

Huawei Honor 6X review


The Huawei Honor 6X has two things that the Galaxy S8 does not: dual rear cameras and a fast, accurate rear-mounted fingerprint reader that's actually easy to reach. (Samsung's Galaxy S8 has a single camera lens on the back and awkwardly puts its...

The Huawei Honor 6X has a dual rear camera, a ton of advanced camera tools and it's way cheap.

It runs an older version of Android and sometimes lags when launching or switching apps. Photo quality doesn't live up to the tools.

The Motorola Moto G5 Plus is the better budget phone in nearly every way. Get the Huawei Honor 6X only if you really want a dual rear camera.

Honor 6X review: A dual-camera Moto G4 Plus adversary


With fantastic performance at a great price, Honor's 6X shouldn't be ignored

Great dual-camera on a budget ; A great performer ; Long-lasting battery life

Disappointing display

But what’s really impressive about the Honor 6X is that it holds firm against smartphones that cost twice (and in some cases three) times as much as its £225 asking price. In short, Honor has created a fantastically capable budget smartphone in the 6X...

Honor 6X review


Honor is Huawei's cheaper smartphone brand and doesn't try to hide it. However the new 6X is a fine phone for just over £200, with a very similar user experience - if not performance - to others three times its price. Here is our Honor 6X review.

The Honor 6X manages to be a budget phone but not remotely feel like one. This is high praise, and while it could never hold a candle to the performance of phones three times the price, that’s not the point – the Android experience you get is still...

Honor 6X Review: In Depth


Honor 6X review: Honor's first phone of 2016 is an interesting mid-ranger packing a premium build and a dual sensor-laden rear camera. Meet the Honor 6X.

Attractive design ; Rich camera features ; Great battery life

Underwhelming camera quality ; No 5GHz WiFi support

The Honor 6X is a timely update on 2016’s Honor 5X with a great design, feature-rich user and camera interfaces, dependable battery life and respectable performance, all for under £225.

Honor 6X review: Solid performance at a hard-to-beat price


Honor's latest budget smartphone gives you plenty of bang for your budget buck

The Honor 6X may be a budget handset by dint of its price point, but at times it does a passable impression of a handset of twice the price. For £225, the performance and camera more than cover the cost of entry and then some.

Huawei Honor 6X review

  (Rating Hidden)

Huawei may not be a smartphone brand that's up there with the Apples and Samsungs of the world, but it's quietly making a name for itself by producing phones with premium features for a less-than-premium price. The Huawei Honor 6X is attracting plenty...

Great dual-camera on a budget; A great performer; Long-lasting battery life;

Disappointing display;

Honor has created a fantastically capable budget smartphone in the 6X at a very tempting price, and it’s impossible not to recommend it.

Honor 6X review: Flagship features for under £200


The Honor 6X is a brilliant all-rounder, made all the better by its low price. Camera aside it does little other phones don't, but as a complete package it's hard to beat without spending a lot more.

+ Low price ; + Metal build ; + Dual-lens camera

- No NFC ; - Somewhat iffy interface ; - Slightly plain

The Honor 6X is a highly-accomplished smartphone, with a stylish build, a decent amount of power and an powerful dual-lens camera. With a fingerprint scanner, a large battery, plenty of storage and an above average screen too it makes for a strong option.

The Honor 6X may be aimed at younger users, but it has a huge amount to offer everyone
