Honor 6X affordable dual lens camera smartphone
Honor 6X has this metallic body design which surely gives it a premium look. The phone feels sturdy in the hands and has nice grip due to the curved edges. The 3.5 mm jack is on the top along with secondary noise cancellation microphone. The micro USB port is on the bottom with speakers. Volume rockers and power button are on the right while the SIM card tray is on the left. The circular fingerprint scanner is on the back along with dual lens camera vertical setup. Overall the phone looks like a big brother of Honor 5C from the front.
Honor 6X has a 5.5 inch full HD IPS display having pixel density of 403 ppi. I don’t see any sort of Gorilla glass protection on the front. So you better apply a screen guard or tampered glass on your device. The screen is a fingerprint magnet so it is better you go for a matte screen guard. The display quality looks fine and has 2.5D contoured edges.
Honor 6X comes packed with a Kirin 655 chipset having octa-core processor(4 cortex cores at 2.1 GHz+ 4 cortex cores at 1.7 GHz). The device has 3/4 GB of RAM with 32/64 GB of ROM variants respectively. As for the graphics, it has Mali-T830MP2 GPU. In the normal usage, the phone seemed totally fine. We didn’t get a chance to do the full gaming review, but will cover it surely. if you look at the specs closely, the chances are that the device will perform great in gaming too. As for the software, it comes with Android 6.0 marshmallow with EMUI running on top of it. Again the custom UI steals the stock android feel. The device is planned to get a Nougat update, and we wish it happens soon. The fingerprint
Honor 6X has a dual lens rear camera of 12 MP + 2 MP. The 12 MP lens will capture the photo while the other 2 MP lens will add a depth to the image. Overall the picture quality is just great and the low light performance has increased. With the dual lens setup you can take a picture with background blurred which is popularly known as the ‘Bokeh Effect’. The aperture can be varied from a range of F/0.95-F/16. One great thing about having dual lens is that you can also re-focus the image even after taking the picture. This feature comes with most of the devices having dual lens. The focusing is really fast with Honor 6X due to the Sony IMX386 sensor. It has a 8 MP front camera for taking some great selfies. There is an added splash feature which allows you to insert color in certain areas in the monochrome image. Overall the camera of the Honor 6X does a good job.
Connectivity and Sound
Normal connectivity options like Wifi, bluetooth, GPS, dual hybrid SIM support are there in the Honor 6X. It also supports 4G VoLTE the latest thing in the market. Fingerprint sensor on this device is pretty quick and accurate when it comes to unlocking the device. You can also use the fingerprint sensor to accept calls, scroll down pages which is actually a great feature and must be used by everyone. The sound for the speakers is not that loud but it is quite clear. Speakers still need some improvement.
Honor 6X comes with a 3340 mAh battery. There is quick charging feature available. Honor claims that the device can last up to 2 days with normal usage. I will need to test it thoroghly to confirm if that is true.
Here is the part where the phone will surprise you. The Honor 6X 3GB RAM and 32 GB variant is priced for 12,999 INR and the 4 GB RAM 64 GB ROM variant will cost you 15,999 INR. It is actually great to have a dual lens camera in the budget segment.
For all the photographers out there, you can definitely give Honor 6X a shot. Overall the phone is quite good and we will tell you more about it once we get our hands on it. So till then stay tuned for the full review.
