Design and Build
Honor 6X is an all metal unibody device which feels good to hold. This also makes the phone a bit slippery and a back cover is recommended. The gentle curves compliments its looks. The 5.5 inch display looks good with thin bezels on the sides. The Full-HD display has good viewing angles and performs well in the outdoors.
On the left side, there is a hybrid SIM card slot which can accommodate a MicroSD card in the second slot. On the right there is a volume rocker and a power button. There is a Micro-USB port, a speaker grill and a microphone at the bottom.
The Honor 6X has a dual-camera setup, LED flash and a fingerprint sensor at the back. Overall, the device is well build and looks good but fails to provide a good grip.
