For better display and clear visibility it is equipped with 480 dpi (density per pixels). It has the best display with top-notch quality of icons and color quality further it is layered with 2.5D curved glass for its protection.

Best thing of Huawei Honor 6X is its multi-touch that has scored full 10 points. Mostly the mid-range smart phones scores 5 points in multi-touch test but honor 6X has blown away us with its full touch support.

The color quality, sharpness and brightness are very well-balanced plus it gives you a very catchy effect. Huawei always works for its better display quality which we can see in Honor 6X.

Rest of the back is totally simple metal body in which “honor” is also marked at its down side.

Memory for Huawei Honor 6X :

Huawei honor 6X has best memory section because it is mid-range smart phone and in mid-range smart phone category it is providing 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. These choices are very good and with 32GB internal memory you don’t need of any memory card unless and until you are application and game lover. If you will fill your smart phone with too many applications and videos, it will slow your device.

The 3GB RAM is also a perfect choice for mid-range smartphones. We have tested honor 6X in every section and got not delays and lags.

Camera within Huawei Honor 6X:

The camera of Huawei Honor 6X is amazing because it is the first mid-range smart phone that is providing us the dual back camera lens. The dual back camera lens is 12MP and 2MP while the front camera has 8MP lens. Let’s have a look at these both camera lenses in detail.

Rear Camera of Huawei Honor 6X:

For blurry or bokeh effect we have wide aperture in honor 6X which range is from f/16 to f/0.95. We can change the depth of field by increasing or decreasing it further we have tested the bokeh effect with it and it has performed very well.

The interface of camera is very easy to use and by swiping to the left side it takes you to the general camera settings. Swiping right it will take you to its main mode settings which are beauty mode, night shot, manual mode and scanning documents.

The results are very brilliant because it has fast focus and captures very catchy and impressive images. Pictures have very good details especially for a mid-range phone. Color accuracy, depth field, sharpness and brightness are very well balance and in mid-range devices it has the best camera.

Front Camera of Huawei Honor 6X:

Front camera of Huawei Honor 6X has 8MP lens with screen flash light. It doesn’t have any extra flash light for front facings selfie while it can record videos in high quality. Beauty mode does a wonderful job in Honor 6X as it has adjustable options of brightness and softness.

The results of front camera are very better than the previous devices of Huawei. 8MP lens for front camera is the best choice yet. It automatically softens and brighten your selfie which give us very good results. Intakes of pictures are very well and brightness is also balanced.

It is dual SIM enabled device further we can increase its internal memory up to 256GB by inserting memory card in SIM 2 plot.

The device screen is 5.5 inches which is normal size so it will consume less power as compare to other devices. Excessive usage of 4G,3G and 3D games can drain the battery very quickly otherwise it is totally fine.

Interface of Huawei Honor 6X :

The honor 6X runs android version 6.0 (Marshmallow) with the interface of Emotion UI 4.1. It should have latest android version 7.0 (nougat) and up til now we have not received any update regarding nougat version. Still its interface is one of the best and organized interfaces as compare to Infinix and QMobile devices.

Let’s roll from the lock screen which has different wallpapers those changes automatically after every few seconds. Status bar at lock screen is present at top side which shows the status of connectivity points, SIM and battery. At down side date and time are displayed while the camera option is present at the right side.

The main screen has date and time widget at its top while below to it we have Google search bar. After it some applications are arranged in the form of rows and columns. It doesn’t have any application manager separate just a slider bar is available to acess all the applications.

Many bloatware applications are already installed on it such as mirror, hi care, hi game,, true caller and game loft. Themes application is also available via which we can change the color and display of Honor 6X.

With all these extra oridnary features Huawei Honor 6X can easily compete with any mid-range device. We have tested it in all categories and it has showed us awesome performance.
