Thank you, I did not know this. Can you cite further references / articles / links?

Agreed. It's just terrible. It wasn't nearly as slow when I first started using it but it was noticeably slower than my LG G3 (which ended up dying because those were just poorly built)

Love my Honor 5x. Recent battery charging issues. Worst system to replace. But need to open up to find out what kind of battery to buy. When purchasing, this issue should be addressed and repair kit offered.
