Deal: the entry-level Honor 5X is now available at 20% off, packs a lot of value at the price
Head on over to Newegg by clicking the source link below, add the Honor 5X to the cart, and you'll see the phone listed at $189.99. During checkout, input coupon code ESCEMGE24EDU, and the retailer will drop the price of the phone to $159.99.
That price is good for a brand new phone in its unlocked flavor. The Honor 5X comes with dual-SIM capabilities, meaning that you'll be able to rock both an AT&T and a T-Mobile SIM card at the same time. Unfortunately, the phone won't work with CDMA carriers such as Verizon and Sprint.
The Huawei-made Honor 5X was already an interesting entry-level smartphone at its usual price of $200. At $160, US customers will have a tough time finding a better phone overall (without importing a unit from Asia and having to deal with several potential network compatibility problems).
The Honor 5X comes with raw hardware specs that include a 5.5-inch display running at 1080 by 1920 pixels, a mid-range Snapdragon 616 chipset with an octa-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal storage, and a 3000mAh battery. In the camera department, the Honor 5X is equipped with a 5MP selfie sensor on the front and a 13MP primary shooter on the back.
