Speaking of the honor 5X, here are a few reasons as to why you might want to consider it as your next phone of choice.
Appealing metal build
What really captures one's attention from the first moment they take an honor 5X in their hands is the sleek metal build. True, no one would have batted an eye if honor had resorted to plastic as the 5X would have still been a rather enticing device, but it's commendable that aluminum was chosen instead. It doesn't only feel good in the hand when you gently grasp it, it also looks good, even from afar.
The CNC chamfered edge
sets the honor 5X apart from most of its direct competitors in this price range, as it simply exudes class. Finally, the 'honor' logo at the back is etched by lasers, which is yet another reason for bragging!
Its fingerprint scanner is pretty fast
Positioned at the back of the honor 5X, its fingerprint reader is fast and accurate. The rim-free second-gen FPC sensor will unlock your honor 5X in 0.5s after a successful reading attempt was made, which is quick no matter how you look at it. Additionally, apart from sheer speed, the sensor is an adaptive one, meaning that the more you use it, the better the fingerprint will get, even after the initial setup process. This will improve the scanner's performance if you try to unlock your phone with wet hands or only partially hit the scanner with your finger.
The fingerprint scanner will not only unlock your phone, there's also a whole bunch of stuff you can do with it. You can, for example, use it as a camera shutter, or tie any of your fingers to a specific contact and call them in a jiffy. You can also swipe down on the sensor and the notification bar will automatically expand, which is undoubtedly a useful perk.
A 3,000mAh battery
With a 3,000mAh battery at the back, the honor 5X will easily last a day of moderate usage and still be able to keep the lights on for a couple of hours the next day. A large part of this is due to SmartPower 3.0, a technology that reduces power consumption by a hefty 30%. Heavy-users will still have a full day of battery life at hand.
