Camera Overview

Huawei Honor 6X, has a Dual camera of 12+2 MP as the primary one and an 8 MP camera as the secondary one. It possesses all the features, which photo fanatics would definitely love. Features like, beauty video, time-lapse, pro photo, pro video, night shot, light painting, HDR, slow motion and more.

By sliding right you get settings page as well, where you can adjust the shutter sound and image saturation according to your needs. Plus, shutter and autofocus speed is quick and satisfying.


Outdoor images turned out to be well balanced in terms of colors with good shutter speed as well as image processing and autofocus. Artificial light images are also good and color balanced, but pictures taken in low light seem to carry noise and grains in them. Overall, it has a good camera, which can exceed your expectation in outdoor and natural light conditions but will be just satisfactory in low light conditions.



Gaming Overview

Huawei Honor 6X, with its 3 GB RAM and Octa-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz, gives great gaming experience. We played Modern Combat for 30 minutes, we did not experience frame drops or lags at all but battery performed at an average rate by dropping from 36% to 23%. Plus, phone got a little warm as well.


Huawei Honor 6X is a good smartphone and a good competition for this segment’s phones. With its premium build, dual-camera and decent performance, it can surely be a good competitor for existing smartphones in the same price segment.
