Just blends in…


The stunning design, classic styling and large display make the phone look very appealing. It has a 5.5 inch large display and completely touch screen without any buttons. We all want our phones to stand out and thankfully this beauty makes a supreme style statement. When you carry it in your hand, it looks nothing less than an arm candy.

The processor is lightening fast. So now you can send work mails in a jiffy, keep connected with friends and family via social media, play games and do a lot more. Also, Honor 5X is effective in multitasking. It has 2 sim slots for a nano and micro sim. Both these are 4G enabled.

Pretty gold color

If you also love gold hued phones, then Honor 5X will win your heart. This pretty almost rose gold color (it isn’t exactly rose gold) looks gorgeous. Whether you are a college going girl, a working woman or a proud homemaker, this beautiful color is for everyone.


With 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, it gives amazing pictures and irresistible selfies. The camera has various modes –

  • Panorama – for those stunning landscape pictures
  • Slow motion – twirling in a lehnga and slow-motion are best friends
  • Watermark – give your photos a unique stamp
  • All focus – everyone’s favorite

The added modes for beauty, food and time lapse are also very good. I can go on and on about the great clarity of pictures. They look brighter and the colors come out really well. I took this phone on my recent trip to Jordan and it has impressed me even more. The different modes give you the freedom to play around and experiment with photography and you can easily upload pictures as well. With Honor 5X, Instagramming becomes all the more exciting.

In low light, the pictures might grain a little, but you can use filters for correction. The access to filters is very convenient.

Finger Print Sensor

The most amazing feature is the Finger Print sensor for greater security. The phone has a rimless touch finger print sensor at the rear end, just below the camera. It takes your finger print scans from various angles and unlocks the phone in 0.5 seconds. The sensor is that quick and accurate, you’d hardly need a second touch.

The other interesting feature of the finger print sensor is using different fingers for different apps. So with one finger you can directly access Instagram, while with the other you can straightaway jump to you mail, now that’s what I call beauty with brains.


The phone is priced at Rs 12,999/- and is a total value for money. It’s easily available online at Amazon and Flipkart.

You can buy it at Amazon here.

If you are looking for a phone in the price range between Rs 10,000/- and 15,000/-, then you should definitely consider Honor 5X.

It’s affordable, stylish and offers hassle free usage. A big thumbs up from my side. Invest your money and you’ll not regret it.

  1. Battery life is poor and charging time ia too much i think. Also processor is not that beefy so phone lags eveey now and then.
