6 things you need to know before buying the honor 5x in the US


You may not know it, but since January 31st this year, the US smartphone market has had a very competitive offering by the name of 'honor 5X' grasping for your attention. Priced at $199, the device is built by a dedicated team at Chinese communications giant Huawei and is on sale via the official honor store, Amazon, and Newegg at $199.99 unlocked.

Granted, our review established that there are plenty of areas where the device could have received more attention, but this doesn't change the fact that you're getting a lot of smartphone for the money. This is a metal-bodied handset with a 5.5-inch, 1080p resolution screen, octa-core Snapdragon 615 chip, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable memory. There's also a 13MP/5MP camera combo, a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and a 3000mAh battery that keeps the Android 5.1-powered device running.

A little over a week after the honor 5x launched, the team behind its US distribution and support hit /r/Android to answer people's inquiries about the device. It was a short, but fruitful session that spawned at least six questions and answers that everyone interested in the handset will find important. Don't worry, it's mostly good news and ambitious promises – and there they are, placed in the slideshow below!
