Honor 6X review: Amped up
A proper gallery
With in increasing number of devices defaulting to Google Photos for their image browsing duties, folks have been vocal about preferring a proper gallery that allows easier navigation of albums and folders.
Luckily, the stock photo gallery in the Honor 6X delivers on these points and offers the traditional way of browsing photos on an Android phone. You can view all photos chronologically, or you can view your photos by album. You can also dig into the settings and find an option to hide albums from clogging up the directory.
Open a single image, and you'll be given a host of sharing and editing options. The info icon can show you a quick glimpse of the image, and includes a histogram.
The built-in editor is quite capable as well. There are options for exposure adjustments, rotation and cropping tools, collage tools, lots of filters, beauty enhancements, color splash, image levels, even shadows, and highlights.
The included video player is quite basic, but it works. It even has a pop-out window mode so you can watch a floating video window while you perform other tasks.
The Honore 6x has a stylish Music app pre-installed. It offers four default playlists - songs, artists, albums, folders. You can create your playlists, too. The background of the app changes dynamically to match the album art, which is a nice little touch.
The Now Playing screen is pretty standard, it offers album art and lyrics. If you're especially into lyrics, you can have them overlayed on top the homescreen.
Audio quality doesn’t disappoint
The Huawei Honor 6X had decent clarity in both parts of our audio quality test. When hooked up to an active external amplifier it got mostly excellent scores. While the frequency response was a bit shakier than usual, it’s not something you’d notice in your daily usage.
Plugging in a pair of headphones caused an average increase in stereo crosstalk and a bit of extra damage to the frequency response but the overall result was still very decent.
The Honor 6X also really impressed with its loudness, posting high scores on both occasions, rounding up a very solid overall performance.
Anyway, here go the results so you can do your own comparisons.

I'm using it for more than a year now so far I have never experienced that issue. It's working so well for me.
