Huawei Honor 6XAs you might expect from a phone with scaled-back hardware, the Honor 6X doesn’t benchmark particularly well.
The Honor 6X is 6 x 3 in., just a touch bigger than the samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and 0.2 oz.
Rather than running the latest Huawei EMUI on the latest Android, the Honor 6X runs EMUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0.
But here’s why to consider the Honor 6X: It costs $250 unlocked.
Yet that’s just what Huawei is doing with the Mate 9 and Honor 6X, two phones that represent good-to-excellent value but would otherwise not set the world on fire.

The Mate 9, like previous Huawei phones, includes several enhancements to help apps launch faster and keep the system feeling more responsive.
The Mate 9’s CPU cores reach higher peak frequencies than those in the Mate 8 too, but the differences are small.
Mate 8 (bottom) and Mate 9 (top)Perhaps the biggest criticism of past Kirin SoCs were their seemingly underpowered GPUs.
Both the Mate 9 Pro (128GB) and Mate 9 Porsche Design (256GB) come with additional storage, and all three Mate 9 versions have a slot for a microSD card to expand storage further.
The four ARM Cortex-A72 CPUs in the Mate 8’s Kirin 950 have been replaced by four of ARM’s latest Cortex-A73 CPUs.
