Is my Honor 6x broken or is it just a bad phone?

I've had an Honor 6x for about 9 months now. It's been fairly rubbish since I got it but I've put up with it because it has a lovely camera and I kind expected to get what I paid for given how cheap it is.

Generally it runs okay, a bit slow, but cheap android slow not anything super out of the ordinary. But when it comes to certain apps: Spotify, Snapchat and the Camera app are the main culprits, it is basically unusable. I have to use spotify in offline mode most of the time just to get it to even vaguely work and even then I often have to restart the phone to make it functional and scrolling past about D in the artists causes the app to crash completely. Snapchat crashes so often that I have just deleted it from my phone because I can't use it, and the native camera app is painfully slow or just altogether doesn't work meaning I've missed a bunch of great photo opportunities.

I just wondered if anyone else has experienced similar problems and it is just a cheap and not that great phone, or if this is unusual and maybe there is an issue with my handset that I need to sort out because I don't want to keep using a phone that takes 10 minutes to play one song on spotify. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My wife has the 6x and does not experience these issues. it's not the quickest device but apps work fine. She has been using the device and a daily driver for almost a year and half. Maybe doing a factory reset, maybe there is something corrupt somewhere or contact Honor, I believe you have a year warranty.
