Huawei Honor 6X Camera Samples

For testing camera on Huawei Honor 6X, we took some pictures of our usual objects and some selfies as well. Let us take a look at the quality of samples.

Wide Aperture Mode


HDR Image


Low Light (Without Flash)


Front Camera Samples

We used three parameters, on which we took selfies and reviewed the front camera quality. Below are the pictures that we clicked in natural, artificial and low light conditions. Selfies taken in flow of the sunlight came out to be quite good with vibrant colors and sharp details. It clicked a darker image when turned against the sun. In artificial light condition, camera seems to work well, but when zoomed in; it shows a minimal amount of noise in the picture. We tested low light quality by clicking selfies, with and without screen flash. With flash, it captures average image with little noise visibility. It got a bit difficult to identify the subject and any light without using screen flash.

Rear Camera Samples

Primary camera on Huawei Honor 6X, is equipped with 12+2 MP capabilities with LED flash. Below are the samples clicked in natural, artificial and low light.

Artificial Light

We came across a smooth imaging process, where we didn’t find any problem with the shutter speed and autofocus. Images seem to be pretty natural and good as per the artificial light conditions.

Natural Light

Camera performance went above satisfactory level as images taken in natural light are of great detail.

Autofocus was fast and image processing was at a blink. As seen in the images, colors are vibrant and look close to natural. This type of rear camera deliverance is quite impressive, keeping competitive phones in mind.

Low Light

Low light performance is decent, which is pretty common in this price segment. Images are easy for eyes to catch the subjects. The lower the light goes, the more noise visibility is encountered.
