Huawei’s latest Honor smartphone has an excellent fingerprint scanner, good screen, camera and battery life, but customised Android Lollipop isn’t up to par
The Honor 5X is the latest mid-range smartphone from rising Chinese manufacturer Huawei, which aims to bring decent performance, screen and fingerprint sensor for less than £190.
Honor is Huawei’s budget brand and marketed separately, including a couple of smartphones available in the UK with exclusivity to mobile phone operator Three.
Pros: good screen, good camera, dual-sim, microSD card slot, good battery, nice feel, great fingerprint scanner
Cons: not latest version of Android, battery not removable, EMUI won’t be to everyone’s taste, software not well optimised, occasional lag, no quick charging
