Tomorrow, the honor 5X will be available in the U.S. priced at $199.99 off-contract
This Sunday January 31st, the honor 5X handset will be available in the U.S. The device, built by Huawei, will go on sale via the official honor store, Amazon and Newegg for $199.99 sans contract. For the price, you're getting a handset that carries a 5.5-inch screen, with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The Snapdragon 615 SoC is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of  expandable memory. Those seeking additional storage can access the 128GB capacity microSD slot on board.

A 13MP rear-facing camera adorns the back of the device, while a 5MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. A rear-facing fingerprint scanner is one of the features, and a 3000mAh battery keeps the generator humming. Android 5.1 is pre-installed, with EMUI 3.1 running on top. The metal clad body is just 8.15mm thick, and the phone weighs in at 158 grams. Your color options are Gray, Gold or Silver.

If you can pull yourself away from the Pro Bowl for a few minutes tomorrow, you might want to check out the honor 5x. You can read our review of the phone by clicking here.

I would prefer to get an idol 3 over this, but a great price for a budget friendly device. I hope to see a Xiaomi Redmi 3 review from you guys no time soon.

Had this been S652 SoC instead of 615, it would have been an amazing deal tbh.

still good enough for sub $200 phone (since 615 is actually for midranger, and no other sub $200 offer spec like this one) good alternative is Redmi 3 with SD616

But you won't get that snappy finger print scanner though. Other than that the G3 seemsike a good deal for 200$.
