October 2016 - September 2017

We’ve been a bit critical of the Honor 6X as of yet, since the phone ships with somewhat outdated software and Honor’s track record with updates isn’t the best. But even considering that, it’s hard not to give Honor credit for making a phone that’s simply a great value for the money when you consider its specifications. The phone has Android Marshmallow (soon-ish to be Nougat), a 12MP main camera, 32GB of storage space, 3GB of RAM, and a FHD 1920 x 1080 display.

Full specs:

  • GSM / 4G LTE Capable
  • North American Variant
  • 12MP + 2MP Rear Cameras / 8MP Front
  • 2.1 GHz + 1.7 GHz Quad-Core CPUs
  • 32GB Storage Capacity + 3GB of RAM
  • 5.5″ IPS LCD Touchscreen Display
  • FHD 1920 x 1080 Resolution
  • Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)
  • microSDXC Memory Card Slot
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Honor debuted its mid-range 6X back at CES 2017, and while it’s a pretty good smartphone overall, it shipped with one mind-boggling issue — it came out of the box with Marshmallow and Huawei’s terrible EMUI 4.

How to enable the app drawer on the Honor 6X with EMUI 5.0

Despite its flaws, the Honor 6X is a surprisingly solid mid-range device. Its biggest flaw, though, is the software layer.

Honor 6X

The Honor 6X was one of a few phones announced back at CES, but first impressions weren’t all that great. The main sore spot with the device was the software. With stronger options available from the company, it was tough to recommend the 6X with the software it originally shipped with.

At CES 2017 Honor announced the 6X which is the company’s budget device that features mid-tier specs and a $249 price tag.
