Honor 5X - Metal body, Fingerprint sensor, 5.5 Inch, 1080p FHD Display, 4G LTE, Unlocked GSM Smartphone - USA Warranty - 16 GB Silver
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This phone is sleek, sexy, and as thin as the modern iPhones.its gots a nice 5.5"HD display. My favorite is the fingerprint sensor, i can finally be at ease knowing that my kids wont be able to unlock it but the sensor can also be set for other things like answering a call or to open an app. the phone has 16GB of internal memory but it can be expanded, this phone can read up to 128GB. it also comes with Android 5.1 (Lollipop) and it has 2 SIM card slots 1 NanoSIM and the other is a MicroSIM, the phone can support both SIM cards at the same time and it supports 4G LTE and all this for only 200 bucks!

Cons: the phones Wi-Fi is extremely slow by that i mean imagine you got cable at your house and you go to a friend or relative's house that gots DSL and you notice a big difference in speed when surfing the net, when i bought the phone i knew surfing through wi-fi would be a lil slower than my LG Optimus F6 since the phone can only connect to 2.4Ghz networks, just didn't expect it to be this slow, i mean i still have my Samsung Galaxy Y that i bought back in June of 2012 that also connects to only 2.4Ghz networks and its alot faster than the honor 5X when it comes to streaming youtube, surfing the net or loading apps that require internet such as a banking app or the newegg app, you're better off using your networks 4G LTE than the Wi-Fi. this phone also cannot do Wi-Fi calling, this may not be an issue for everybody but for me this is a MAJOR issue because i live in the basement of the house and i get no cellular signal, maybe a bar or 2 when the phone is idle, but then the bars drop the minute i open the phone. there's also a program installed called "Preloaded Widget" by Martin Wei that gots a 2.7 rating but you wont see it anywhere on the phone, but if you open the play store and tap on your account and than tap on apps and games, you'll see it in the list and it says "installed" and it cannot be removed, maybe if the phone was rooted you might be able to uninstall it i never tried it yet and i dont plan to because i don't want to take any risks for just 1 app. also the phone only gots a 1-year manufacturers warranty and you can't purchase any warranty from newegg either, at least i wasn't able to when i bought the phone

Other Thoughts: honestly, if the 4 cons that i listed aren't really much of an issue to you (no wi-fi calling, slow surfing with 2.4Ghz networks, unremovable app, and can't purchase warranty) than honestly i'd say buy it since you wont find that many nice looking unlocked phones with Android Lollipop with a fingerprint sensor like this for only $200

TP-LINK Archer C5 AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router, 2.4 GHz 300 Mbps+5 GHz 867 Mbps, 2 USB Ports, IPv6, Guest Network

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: the router is very easy to setup

Cons: the router didnt have very good range on my Xbox one or my PC and there is only about 15ft between my PC and the router on the same floor with only one wall between my systems and the router and i only would have 2/5 bars on my PC, and my Xbox would have 2/4 bars, when i connect to my ISP's gateway i would have 4/5 bars on my PC and 3/4 bars on my Xbox one. i dont know why, i've kept the firmware up to date, and yet still no improvment

the routers wireless started to go bad about 2-3 months after i bought it and now its not working at all even though the light for it is blinking like it should but neither of my systems are able to connect to it, i'm stuck using my ISP's gateway until i find another more reliable router

Pros: worked great, before the minor connection issues, read cons

Cons: tends to disconnect alot for a few milliseconds here and there.to some this may not seem much of an issue until their games or their video streaming starts to glitch
