On the camera side of things, the Honor 5X sports a 13MP rear shooter and a 5MP front camera to allow you to take great selfies with the device.

The highlight of the phone is the Fingerprint sensor that it packs. The Honor 5X has a fingerprint reader at the back of the device, just under the camera module. The fingerprint reader is a second generation frame-free sensor that offers astonishing performance and accuracy. The fingerprint reader can unlock your phone in 0.5sec. The sensor is an adaptive sensor, wherein you can configure different fingers to launch different tasks or apps on your phone. The sensor is also called an adaptive sensor, which learns as you use it. This capability allows it to be surprisingly fast and detect your fingerprint at any angle that you place your finger at. The fingerprint sensor also features ARM chip level security and you can securely store up to 5 fingerprints on the device. One last feature that the fingerprint sensor boasts is that you can even unlock the device when your hands are wet, which might be a great inclusion for a lot of people.
