10 May, 2016
Local carrier Rogers has the device in stock, and is selling it for CAD 0 on a regular 2-year contract or CAD 375 outright.

I don't really I understand... Some other people said that GR5 and Honor 5x are no the same product because their pricing is too far different some others said that Honor 5x in the Philippines is the GR5

It's no longer on newegg.ca. Did rogers/huawei force it off the site.

Huawei GR5 (not named as Honor 5X) is also available in the Philippines (shown in the globe telecom Huawei ad).

I saw the price - 375 CAD, which is much more expensive than the Chinese version Honor 5X

The price of the phone + tax + new account charge or transfer charge + other b* charges. and ultimately you are going to end up paying about $500+ for it. Oh and it will have Rogers bloatware on it as well. When it comes to Rogers, its anything but a budget phone.

Then if you want to unlock it, another $20-30 to get unlock code. Its just not worth the hassle.

About time! I got my honor 5x from Newegg.ca, for $268 (shipping included). Do us all a favor and buy it from Newegg. Do not buy from evil Rogers.

Plus, the newegg version comes unlocked.

Australia has a Huawei GR5 too at JB HI-fi... Might be the Honor5X too

The price for this smartphone based on the feature set is shocking. An inexpensive smartphone with basically all the bells and whistles.

Get it cheaper & MOST IMPORTANT: UNLOCKED online. Multiple places selling it for $250 CAD.
