It is no secret that the phone industry is expanding and they are becoming more affordable every day, but how low will the prices go? The OnePlus 3T is considered a low price phone costing about $400, which is half the price of an iPhone or Galaxy. Now we have the Huawei Honor 6X that costs about half of OnePlus 3T.
The new Honor 6X that comes at a low price of $249. With that price you get a dual-camera, a surprising fingerprint scanner, and the option of expandable memory. It has a huge 3,340mAh battery, which is bigger than the Galaxy S7’s battery. It comes with a 5.5″ screen, a sharp 1080p resolution, and a smooth 2.5D glass. It runs on a speedy Octa-Core Kirin 655 SoC chip, made by Huawei and has a 3GB of RAM. The back of the phone is full metal build with a home button on the back and a 12-megapixel camera and a 2-megapixel sidekick to help it take more in depth pictures. The first thing you will notice on the front is that it has no physical buttons. The speaker is at the top of the device, including a sensor and an 8-megapixel camera. The sides of the phone have very slim, clean looking bezels.
The phone does have a few cons to it, but keep in mind that it only costs $249. The first thing it lacks is the support of any kind of fast-charge. It still uses micro-USB to charge the huge battery it comes with. Secondly, it runs on Emotion UI 4.1 which sits on the 6.0 Marshmallow which is not that bad in my opinion. They did promise a 7.0 update in Q2 of 2017, which is okay since many of android phones are still in process of getting the 7.0 update (looking at you Galaxy S7/Edge). Lastly, the front screen is made of glass and not gorilla glass which means getting cracks on the screen won’t be too hard.
In all, this is a great phone for a great price and if you do not like spending about $800 on a Samsung/iPhone or $400 on OnePlus phone then this is the perfect option for you. It has most of the things you get with any other great phone on the shelf these days. The Honor 6X is available for pre-order and will launched on January 10th from Honor’s website, Amazon, Best-Buy and Newegg.
