The software looks outdated? It surely doesn’t. EMUI looks pretty good, I don’t see anything outdated about it. Sure, it runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but it runs great, no need for nougat. Marshmallow is fine, and Android 7 Nougat is just around the corner. I think it’s better to wait a few months for them to release perfectly optimised and bug free software than to have everything as soon as possible, but with bugs. Just take a look at Google’s own Nexus 6 & 6P, they had Nougat as one of the first devices on the market, but they had their fair amount of bugs when Android 7 was released.

Also, since when is the lack of an apps menu a sign of a low budget device? If you don’t like the stock launcher, you put another launcher instead of it, no big deal.

And lastly, why you need 4K video on a $250 device? Putting a lack of 4K video as the main complaint about the camera of a budget smartphone is stupid.

first

Chris Sparks says:

WTF is he talking about?? The lack of an App drawer shows us how budget the device actually is?? Does this guy know anything about phones?? What happened to the normal guy, because this guy sucks at reviews hard core!!! Someone needs to inform Apple that their $1,000 phones are Budget Firendly now according to this guy who Pretends like he knows things about phones, when in actuality, my 98 year old blind grandma could do a better phone review than this guy can. Bring back the normal guy, because this dude is garbage. Definitely THE WORST Honor 6X review I’ve seen…….And I’ve seen tons!!!

Stephen Granville says:

“Lack of a proper app drawer just reminds you of how budget this smartphone really is”…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………what? Is that a thing now? Like do you buy a new lg device and rush into settings to show the app drawer so people dont think your phone is budget friendly? Would you consider the iphone to be running budget software? lol

Aleen Baruah says:

The only thing that turns me off from any smartphone regardless of how awesome it is.. Is branding on the front of the device!!! Hate it

It'sXyron says:

It’s aluminum and plastic not just full aluminum body. The top and bottom are plastic including the buttons. : )

Gagandeep Singh Sokhey says:

i heard, one wont receive calls on 4g lte network. stepping down to 3g will enable. is that a bug ?

J Brandon says:

Can you use this on T-Mobile network ?

Ron Brown says:

he actually said the fact is has no app drawer, shows its budget nature.. half way through the video and already unimpressed

Ryan Hromada says:

Go ahead take a razor blade and scrape some off #RESEARCH

Clayton E. says:

emui is not as bad as you make it sound… albeit, I do have now launcher on my Honor 8. but that’s just because it’s my preferred launcher regardless of the phone. I will actually miss some of the layout and features of 4.1 when 5.0 comes…. and I was a staunch vanilla Android guy before I bought this phone. thus far I’ve enjoyed my Honor phone more than the Nexus phones and OnePlus phones I owned before it.

Dave Knight says:

I just want an updated Honor 8, I love the front of the 6x’s design, would like something like that for the updated Honor 8.

William Parker-Rivera says:

I like the BLU life One X 2

Kosta Zivic says:

Nokia 6 is the best budget today…

Buckeye Imaging says:

I really like my Honor 6x!

Clous von says:

just another cheap forgettable phone

DazM33 says:

I got the Honor 5c and sold it withing a week, not because it lagged or i was not happy with the feel of the device but because of the software, the video and music apps wanted to use the phone and the phonebook or it would not work, then the calendar wanted that permission, and the most crazy thing was and the very first time this ever happened it did ring out! behind my back! I also complained to Honor about the drab camera, and the keyboard was a nightmare, and I can see similarities with the 6X, my advice is to stay away and use that money on getting a decent handset that can be trusted!

piu Das says:

What about moto g4 plus camera??

World Wide Entertainment WWE says:

can it support dual sim card and micro sd card simultaneously

sic22l says:

The lack of App Drawer has nothing to do with the price – Huawei P9 doesn’t have one as well (not to mention all iPhones). Does it look old? Where? Nougat based EMUI 5 looks pretty much the same.
You want to know what a terrible software is? Stock Android. Ugly, dreadful, unfunctional piece of…

Umair Babar says:

Where is Beau HD ? 😀

Martin Ivanov says:

Why on Earth are you comparing a budget phone to a flagship as the iPhone 7? I think it would be more appropriate if you compared it with devices in the same price range or at least his predecessor 5x.

SwagGod 22 says:

no usb c no NFC do if have all the sensors

mboiko says:

If you’re getting a brightness of only 350 nits clearly something is very wrong…there’s a good chance your Honor 6X’s display is broken. Most other reviewers are getting 450-500 nits of brightness.

Ranger W says:

Would this be a noticable upgrade from my LG G4?

Jeff Embry says:

Thinking of replacing my Nexus 6p, which phone would you recommend, price doesn’t matter.

Anthony Capone says:

The answer to the question you asked in you video tittle is no.

af1rs2jl says:

Jesus how many bloatware apps out of the box did this phone come with? I saw like 4 pages of swipes.

Marcel Smit says:

realy, I’m so tired of that emui bashing, just spend some time with it instead of mimicking what other reviewers say!. No I know why I unsubscribed years ago. Just miss the good old days with Aaron.

Tracks Darren says:

I got a Galaxy Note 4 for the same price
Not regrets

Jay Bugatti says:

What song was that in the beginning?

EthericWings says:

love your reviews marco

Abhyuday Krishna says:

Why the frack is the 6x priced so high in the us? It’s only like $185 in India and China.

allpha marine says:

How can I auto call record with out third party app?

Creuss Drey says:

*OnePlus 3’s wallpaper*

Ryan Hromada says:

Wrong the top and bottom of the aluminum is plastic

Jay Bugatti says:

It’s an interesting phone. Great for it’s price.

allpha marine says:

In honor 6x

Indigo Violet says:

For $250,if you don’t care about owning a brand new phone just buy a used iPhone or Samsung Galaxy on ebay.This phone looks like a waste of money.

Yugendran N says:

Redmi Note 4 and Moto G4 are the best budget smartphones..

BeatsAtRank1dotcom says:

this is a $149 phone in china. 249 too much

Val Halla says:

videos only limited to 1080p? Seriously? What other phone for $250 can record video greater than 1080p? its a budget phone please review it as such.

Ain'tMyself says:

Honor marketing at it again. There are way better phones at this price, honor phones are really bad software wise.
