Last Thursday (4th February 2016) the Honor 5X was finally launched in Europe and presented in Munich, Germany. The afternoon comprised of the launch presentation, interviews with Thorsten Doehlert and Zhao Gang, experiencing the phone and a talent show. Before the launch, Honor approached me to ask my thoughts on the device. I found it pleasant to use, light and sturdy; the metal frame and back quite attractive especially in the gold and silver editions. The fingerprint sensor is very quick and efficient. The one downside I personally found was that an app draw does not come included with EMUI, but then I’ll always install Nova launcher fairly quickly regardless. Considering the Honor 5X is a $200 phone, it works very well and I’m happy using it as a daily driver, it gets a thumbs up from me. In the photographs below some will have been taken using the 5X.
