Vidéo : The Honor 5X is Huawei's latest entry level phone. With a fine metal body design, a 5.5 inch full HD screen and a fingerprint sensor, it's a great deal for its price.
The Honor 5X's design looks surprisingly good for its cheap price. The smartphone has an aluminium back, including a fingerprint sensor like the Honor 7 or the Huawei Mate 8. The sensor is pretty responsive.
The 5.5 inch screen has a full HD resolution, with slighly cold colours. However, it's very legible and bright. The smartphone includes a Snapdragon 616 chip, which provides OK performance, though not mindblowing. The 3 000 mAh battery packs enough power to last a whole day, or even a day and a half.
The only real downside is the average camera : pictures are noisy, especially in low light conditions. However, for a price of 230 euros, the Honor 5X still is a very good deal.
