pranay, 27 Jul 2019it is third class phone i ever used, phone lagging huge ... moreAgreed. 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.

SP, 10 Sep 2018Yes, amazing phone then 2 years later it is slowing down so... moreBattery degradation => voltage drops => poor performances and lags.
There's not many other reasons a good working phone would "suddenly" lag. People often think their phone is aging but in most cases it's the battery really. That's sad cause we shouldn't buy so much resources hungry phones

it is third class phone i ever used, phone lagging huge
very bad experience

i have been using this phone since Feb 2016. This is the best segment for average use. Snapdragon 616v2 gives decent performance. No lags no other issues. the product is promising. For the spying issue, each and every os/ apps keeping our data. Dont use any internet services to be safe and secure.

I have been using GR5 (Honor 5x) for more than 2 years. The phone is basically ok. However, it has some weird activities, supportive of the allegations that the Huawei phones are spying the world, and transmits data to China. There are times that I am not using any application needing internet data, however I see the phone getting into unauthorized data usage and data transaction using my data connections, especially when I am connected to wi-fi. Sometimes reaching up to 500k/sec. No matter how I try, I cannot figure out which of my application is using that amount of data. Even after I terminate some apps that use data, the rate of data transaction simply does not go down. Is it not weird??

I need 1.5 hour to charge full with 5V~2A charger. Not bad. 0~50% only 40 minute.

I not have lag issue. My OS is marshmellow code name B310.

No battery drain. Smooth,stable. I buy @90 USD, NEW!!.

This is better than mediatek 6753 or 6750.

My antuntu score is 53.000 with antuntu versi 7.0.xx

I have had (recently broke it out of rage, because of how laggy it was) it 1.5 years and it was one of the most excruciating years I have ever had. I paid 250 euros for this crap. Even the loading screen was lagging. I thought the lag might've come from the full storage, but after doing a full factory reset, it worked the same. So overall: too laggy, wouldn't recommend, for the price you could find phones twice, if not thrice, as good.

  • Mark

I've been using this phone for a couple of years now and had have a very good experience so far, It's not the top of the top when it comes to data processing, not recommended for gaming, however for any other activity it does the job, now I'm thinking to get a P line of haweii, but still my currently phone is working and I'm surprised that has not broke after all the falls over hard pave surfaces.. Thumbs up!

Very good phone, it is now more than 2.5 years old and it running as a new.

I will buy a Honor phone again.
Really fan of this brand.

The Honor 5X is my first Honor phone, and it is the best phone i have ever experienced.
