Huawei Honor 6X comes in three colour variants; Grey, Gold and Silver, all having a matte finish. It has rounded edges at the back that make for a comfortable grip. The smartphone has a metallic construction and is quite solidly built. Its front is dominated by a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display and has the Honor branding below it. Above the display is the earpiece, notification LED and the usual array of sensors.

Honor 6x Review - Design The SIM card tray is on the left while the volume rocker and power key are on the right. At the bottom there's a microUSB port and speaker grille, while the 3.5mm audio jack is up top.The rear panel has the protruding vertical dual camera setup with the fingerprint sensor under it and the LED flash on the side. At the bottom of the back panel is the Honor branding.

Hardware & Software

On the hardware and software, the Huawei Honor 6X is powered by the company's own HiSilicon Kirin 655 octa-core SoC with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage. The hybrid dual-SIM slot means that users have to choose between expandable storage and dual-SIM functionality. There's a 3,340mAh battery as well, up from the Honor 5X's 3,000mAh battery.

Honor 6x Review - Hardware & Software
Huawei Honor 6X runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow topped with Huawei's EMUI 4.1 skin layer. It will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.0 soon. The UI is pretty clean and easy to use. There are a few pre-installed apps but most of these can be uninstalled. There's no app drawer, so you'll have to use a third-party launcher if you want.



The Honor 6X has a dual-camera setup at the back, comprised of a 12MP module and a 2MP module. It can record Full HD videos at 30fps. There's also an 8MP front-facing camera included in the mix. During our time with the device, we found the overall picture quality to be really good.

Honor 6x Review - Camera The dual-camera works great for adjusting the focus after the image has been clicked, making for nice depth-of-field like shots, quite similar to what the Coolpad Cool 1 offered. The clicked images have quite accurate colour reproduction and are sharp. Front camera is decent as well. The app comes with all standard camera modes like HDR, beauty and Panorama.


General performance is overall satisfactory and there are no lags or freezes. The phone handles random app switching and multitasking quite efficiently. The battery can easily last a full day with moderate usage, and can even go for two days with light usage. If the battery level is quite low, an Ultra power saving mode can be activated under the battery settings. It only keeps basic functions like calling and messaging enabled, thus maximizing battery backup.

Honor 6x Review - Performance  The multitasking to be quite effortless as well. There aren't any overheating issues but, numerous apps like Instagram and Google Maps crashing randomly. That said, we think it's a software bug and an update should fix it.

As for call quality, quite alright. Overall 3G/4G connectivity is also as it should be. However, this is something that depends a lot on network 

Talking about the chipset, the Huawei owned HiSilicon Kirin is relatively new compared to Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets used in other phones, but that doesn't necessarily mean, that the former will lack in performance and if you're okay shifting gears from Qualcomm Snapdragon to HiSilicon Kirin, it'll serve you well.


Overall, the Huawei Honor 6X is a really solid smartphone. It has a pretty decent specification , it's well-built and the dual-camera experience is quite good. The only thing that may deter prospective buyers is the fact that it uses Huawei's relatively lesser-known HiSilicon Kirin chipset, as opposed to a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC. However, the performance of the processor (and hence the phone) is appreciable and shouldn't even matter to most users.

So if you want a well-rounded, value-for-money smartphone, go for the Huawei Honor 6X. But if you want an alternative that uses the more common Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and also offers dual-camera experience, the Coolpad Cool 1 is definitely worth checking out.
