Huawei’s budget-minded sub-brand is obsessed with Millennials, but there’s plenty to like about a phone that comes in cheaper than $250. The Honor 6X makes some sacrifices to hit the price point, and you don’t get the very fastest processor or a full metal body, but it’s a handsome device all the same. Huawei’s own chipset keeps Android running well, though sadly you don’t get 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
The real selling point for Honor is the 6X’s dual rear cameras. With them, it promises the sort of bokeh-tastic portraiture that the iPhone 7 Plus’ Portrait mode does so well. The results, as the camera samples below suggest, aren’t quite so clean-cut.
All the same, there’s plenty to like here for a device that won’t break the bank. Verizon and Sprint subscribers will need to look elsewhere, since the 6X is GSM-only. More in our full review.
