I am currently on a nexus 6 and just ordered a 5x. I love the nexus but it's just too big. Will I miss much by changing phones? I will be running nova launcher from the start. I figured for 200$ is worth a chance. Can anyone comment on the in hand feel of the 5x vs the N6?

That is the move I made.... Size wise the honor 5x is much better ergonomically. Buildl quality is just as good or better.

Performance is obviously SLOWER! Hopefully they'll have some custom roms out soon to help with that.

Glad to hear that is going good for you. I am watching XDA for a custom ROM. With better software this phone will be really nice.

The h5x is substantially easier to hold in the hand than the n6.

As said above, performance on the h5x is not very good,relative to the nexus 6. A custom kernel should help a bit though, when available.

Just so you know, the h5x is heavily skinned,compared to stock Google like the n6. Nova can help some but things are still different. Not necessarily bad though, depending on what you want.
