Both versions have microSD support up to 128 GB. Rest of the features and specifications in both versions are same. Let’s have a detailed look at other things.

Design and Display

You love the metallic body with thin panel! You will love this smartphone. The design is eye –catchy with just 8.2 mm thickness, which makes it ready to be used with a single hand. Over and above the 2.5D curved glass with quick touch response system is amazing and fast. The fingerprint sensor is there on the back panel that responds in about 0.3 seconds and is a great option to secure your phone against unauthorized access.

The size of the phone is 5.5 inch that has a full HD resolution, meaning 1920 x 1080 pixels and 403 PPI density, giving you a perfect clarity. The eye comfort mode in the phone is superb for your eyes. This mode is built-in, and you will not have to do anything extra to get this mode work for your eyes.


The biggest highlight of Honor 6X Smartphone is its camera. The Dual camera on the rear side is a combo of 12 MP + 2 MP. Both in combination delivers excellent picture even in sunlight or low light. The phone has Sony IMX386 sensor and the PDAF support that make Honor 6X to stand out the competition. After all, today, people love a phone with a great camera rather than its storage.

The wide aperture range f/0.95 to f/16 gives you a perfect scope to capture lively shots. The HD video recording is an add-on to record moments of a birthday party, friends get together, and many other moments.

Plus, the 8 MP front camera is excellent for beautiful selfie shots in daylight. In low-light, selfies are good, but in comparison to those captured in good lighting, low-light selfies are a little dull. But, with good lighting, your selfies are going to get you praise with a nice clarity and color profile.

Several apps and features again add to your passion for capturing or recording precious moments. Auto Focus, Face Detection, and many other such features help you enjoy the photographer inside you.


By performance, you will find this as a good phone with a good deal in this price segment. The combination of Octa-core – quad-core Cortex-A53 processor at 2.1 GHz and quad-core Cortex-A53 processor at 1.7 GHz +  3 GB / 4GB RAM deliver a good lag free performance. Despite running several applications, you will have a lot of RAM free offering a beautiful performance. To boost the graphics, you will have Mali-T830 GPU, so good picture quality is always there.

Battery Life

In today’s smartphone experience, you cannot get a mobile phone work for the whole day if your battery is less than 3000 mAh. Considering this, Honor 6X has 3340 mAh battery, which is a high-density battery that gets you almost 11% more power than a regular battery. Plus, it has a fast charging mode that gets you full battery in less than 2 hours or nearby on an average use. And, can be even fast when switched off. Once fully charged, you can enjoy this phone for almost more than a day.

Operating System

The phone runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0. This is where we feel that it puts you down because Android Nougat 7.0 is there on the market with some great features, but Honor 6X still giving you Marshmallow with some customization of Huawei EMUI 4.1.

Connectivity and other features

You will be using a Dual SIM, but again here is the culprit. You are not getting a dedicated slot for microSD card. So, either you can use two SIMs or one SIM and one microSD Card.

Other connectivity modes include WiFi, BlueTooth, GPS, FM, USB.

You will also be enjoying Fingerprint (rear-mounted), proximity, accelerometer, and compass.
