Honor proves that a low-cost Smartphone must look not cheap, with the 5X. But not only the design is strong, the equipment right. Currently, there is no more Smartphone for less money.
A comparison with the BQ Aquaris X 5 (Test) clear, which practically as low cost, but without full-HD display comes with a street price of 225 euros and is in a metal housing makes the Smartphone package is how cheap that laces the Huawei daughter honor with the 5 X. The tactile differences are however smaller than you initially think what it is that the 5 X just not entirely consists of aluminium, but top and bottom completes with wide plastic caps.
Also the front page can not deny that it belongs to a 200-euro Smartphone: a the display glass reflects relatively strong, on the other hand, the borders around the screen are very wide – 152 x 76 mm, the honor for a 5.5 incher is quite large. Also the rear camera lens contributes to the massive impression that stands out with more than one millimeter. Summarized speaking, the housing quality is very good, but not more expensive Huawei models like the mate 8 match up. It costs but also almost three times with a RRP of 600 euros.
The display convinces not only with the high resolution – full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) is a novelty in this price class, but also with a high candlepower 537. Because the black level with 0.66 candela is quite high, it is not enough while for intense contrasts, overlooking the price, but top is the offer. Positive: In the settings menu, you can adjust the color temperature.
The drive takes over a middle-class SoC by Qualcomm, Snapdragon 616, whose eight-core 1.5 GHz clock and 2 GB RAM are supported. Enough for a lag-free operation, but not for a liquid representation of demanding 3D games. When compared to top smartphones, it takes significantly longer to install apps or start, also the change to the task manager takes a moment.
No wonder things be expected also from the 13-mega pixel camera. She is ready to go very quickly and offers extras like slow – motion and time-lapse videos, but at best an average image quality. It is striking that motives are not particularly sharp caught and that the level of detail to be desired leaves. In low light, the photos due to the high proportion of noise are hard to use. It sounds dramatic, but ultimately typical in this price range is. Good camera smartphones there from 350 euro, this rule does not break with the honor 5 X also Huawei. The lack of 5-GHz-WLAN is also no surprise.
Still, The equipment level is impressive. The back finger print sensor, which works very reliably, is unique in this price class.
Software: Not quite fresh
Runs on the honor 5 X no current Android version, instead of 6.0 Marshmallow only 5.1 is installed. It is very likely that an update is coming, the question is just when. Honor equipment were so far not particularly fixed supplies, you can pull it up so far in the second half of the year. Liked the user interface EMUI provided us with their iPhone like front panel, which can be found also on the models of Huawei. While this is running mate 8 with version 4.0, 5 X is on the still 3.1 installed – the new version should come together with the marshmallow-update on the 5 X. But already 3.1 succeeded and contains many extras that are not standard with Android. Huawei implements such a Notification Manager with which you can define how what app news informs (status bar, lock screen, etc.), and an comprehensive app management, with the man can determine if an application in the background may remain active.
Plenty of room for apps but there is not: the 16 GB deep memory the system evidenced by already half, leaving only 8 GB the user. Luckily the upgrade with micro-SD cards is possible, even without so that the dual-SIM functionality to restrict, because 5 X is that part of the few phones three high-grade Nano-SIM, micro-SIM and Microsd slot. The radio properties are excellent in all networks – Huawei’s expertise as a network equipment supplier pays off so. Also the endurance is achieved top, strong with a 3000 mAh battery 5 X a run time of 8:48 hours in our mix of uses and make it into the top 10 of the most out Phablets we have ever measured. Two days without plug are in there with the 5 X.
Conclusion: Unrivalled good
Huawei does everything right 5 X with the honor, to the cheap Phablet you can only criticize that a not quite fresh Android version is installed. That the camera is not a high Achiever and 5-GHz-WLAN is missing, is due to the low price and is loose again made up of an aluminium housing and the technical highlights is packaged: not seen so far a so sharp display and a fingerprint sensor in this price class. To get excellent radio properties and an outstanding endurance. In the connect list, the smartphone into the top jumps 10 – done so far still no 230-euro device.
