If you love taking photos and you wouldn’t want to break the bank just so as to get the highly-rated Google Pixel XL or Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, the Huawei Honor 6X is one great phone you can turn to.
One thing that makes the Huawei Honor 6X a phone worth looking at is the price vs specs combination it offers. Released in October 2016, this phone targets the entry-level market by offering some of the best specs, some of which are usually spared for the high-end family.
The major highlight of the Honor 6X is the dual-lens camera it ships with on the back. The setup has a single 12MP lens that is paired with another 2MP shooter. To ensure that you get the sharpest of images possible, Huawei included phase detection autofocus, which is also supported by LED flash for low-light shots. The front panel has a decent 8MP shooter that can record up to 1080p videos, just like the main camera.
Under the hood, Huawei Honor 6X packs a HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor, which is the company’s midrange chipset that also powers a series of ‘Lite’ models. This is then paired with either 3GB RAM or 4GB RAM as well as two storage options of either 32GB or 64GB. This storage can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 256GB, but this slot can also be used for the second SIM card.
In terms of display, the Honor 6X packs a roomy 5.5-inch LCD display screen with a resolution of 1080p (Full HD) and has a pixel density of 403ppi. This delivers a sharp display that matches the likes of iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 3T, among other flagships. In terms of software, the 6X comes preinstalled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but an update to Android 7.0 Nougat has already started rolling out, but it is still restricted to the Chinese market as at the time of this writing.
The Huawei Honor 6X gets a huge 3340mAh battery unit that should last you a full day on a single charge. Even though you get the latest standards such as fingerprint scanner (rear-mounted), 4G LTE, and Bluetooth 4.1, you still have to deal with the outgoing microUSB port. The 3.5mm audio jack is also present.
Right now, you can grab the Honor 6X at a decent price of just ksh 22,888 at KiliMall. You can have the phone either in gold or silver color variants, although there’s word that new blue and pink color variants are on the way.
