Today’s Deal is on the powerful yet budget friendly Honor 6X. Honor is the sub-brand of Huawei and the 6X is one of their late-2016 models. I reviewed the phone back in March and it was the first Honor product I’ve reviewed. I was impressed, especially for the price point. That price has gone down to $149 on Amazon and that makes it an even better deal.
The Honor 6X measures 150.9 x 76.2 x 8.2 mm or 5.94 x 3.00 x 0.32 inches in old money. It weighs 162g or 5.71 ounces. The display on the phone measures 5.5″ and renders a Full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920. That gives you an approximate pixel-per-inch count of 403. It has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which can be expanded thanks to the MicroSD slot.
The main camera configuration of the 6X consists of dual-cameras rated at 12MP and 2MP. The Sony built sensor has a 1.25µm pixel size and has phase detection autofocus. It has an LED flash for low light photography. On the front, the selfie camera is an 8MP shooter. Both the front and the rear cameras are capable of shooting HD video at 1080p at 30fps.
Like other Honor and Huawei phones, the 6X is sold unlocked with an antenna array that supports a wide range of 3G and 4G frequencies. The phone will work only on GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile here in the United States. As always, check with your carrier before making the purchase of this phone to assure compatibility. Here are the frequencies and bands supported by the US version of the Honor 6X.
- HSDPA 900 / 1900 / 2100
- LTE band 2(1900), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 12(700), 20(800), 38(2600)
The special price on the Honor 6X is on all three colors that are available – Gold, White & Grey – and Amazon Prime customers get free shipping on the phone.
Finally, for those who are curious, Huawei has stated that the Honor 6X will be getting update to Android Oreo in early 2018.
