Hey guys,

* This comparison is applicable for Indian version only as price may not be competitive enough for other regions.
Priced @ 12999 INR for 3GB+32GB, 15999 INR for 4GB+64GB

Honor 6X just launched in India today, in an event held at Taj palace, New Delhi and the most exciting thing about the launch was the pricing.


Now, as the title goes for this article about Honor 6X- A real upgrade to predecessor Honor 5X, in this article, I will tear down the factors which makes the Honor 6X a real upgrade to its predecessor based on some key features and hardware upgrade. For some background, Honor 5X was launched last year, around the same time, and was a mid-budget flagship phone. Now with the launch of Honor 6X today, with the same price tag of Honor 5X, Honor 6X has really got some key upgrades.


Instead of writing couple of paragraphs here, I will quickly compare the key factors in below table which will give a clearer picture of the comparison and lets you deicide if 6X is an upgrade to Honor 5X.

*all the highlighted things are really an upgrade here.

Let’s consider only base Honor 6X variant, based on the above table we can clearly make our decision and can decide for sure if Honor 6X is a real upgrade to Honor 5X with some key factors like upgradable to Nougat with EMUI 5.0 vs the Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1, 3GB vs 2GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory vs the 16 GB internal memory, improved 16nm architecture vs the traditional SD 616 processor, increased 2.1 GHz and 1.7 GHz processor speed vs the 1.5GHz and 1.2 GHz respectively, 3340 mAh battery vs 3000 mAh battery, dual rear camera with improved 8 MP front camera vs the single 13 MP camera with 5 MP front camera, additional 2.5 D glass design vs a regular design and out of the box VOLTE and OTG support. Only thing that is missing here is the dedicated SD card slot from Honor 5X which gives you the luxury of expanding the external memory with dual sim support but thats not a shows stopper here as 32 GB internal memory will fill the gaps.

There are many other aspects to compare which can definitely get the Honor 6X a real win win situation here over Honor last years mid budget flagship Honor 5X but that’s how the smartphone technology evolves year on year.

Please post your thoughts on the same in the comment section below.
