Not the best 12/27/2017 10:52:34 AM

Pros: It worked just fine for the price.

Cons: Can't really run games without them lagging.
Not water resistant.

Overall Review: I would look at newer options. Shucks even the 6x (which i also bought) is a lot better than this one.

Very nice inexpensive handset 6/29/2017 5:51:29 PM

Pros: Design features. Screen size, brightness, resolution, & clarity. Dual SIM plus microSD. Fabulous fingerprint scanner. Adequate++ camera. The included accessory film-type screen protector (perfectly applied at the factory). BATTERY LIFE! Price.

Cons: No hardware gyro :-(

Overall Review: I needed a relative inexpensive 'Droid for helping my Android-using clients set up emails & troubleshoot issues (my preferred phone is currently a Lumia 950). I saw this on sale at Newegg for $140, and after a bit of googling, bought one. What a very pleasant surprise. If Huawei made a Windows version, I'd buy one in an instant. Excellent cellular and WiFi connectivity. Bluetooth works fine. The dual SIM setup works great (cellular connections via FreedomPop via AT&T and TPO via T-Mobile ...I use the phone infrequently, so free-to-very-cheap plans are de rigueur), and it's simple to switch back-and-forth between phone numbers).

I actually quite like the Huawei EMUI skin (and adore the ease of using their battery extension app really does work). I appreciated their emulation of the iOS UI ...and the relative lack of odd bloatware that I'd never need. In testing, I found it can several days in standby mode (and weeks if it's turned off) without needing charged; with light use, I generally get a couple of days with it.

I accessorized it with one of the thin Nillkin hard covers (I've used those since my Nexus 4 days). And though I bought a tempered glass screen protector, I've never installed it, since the flawlessly installed factory film protector does a more-than-adequate (if fingerprint magnet-y) job. I also added a wireless QI adaptor which fits fine - and is basically unnoticeable - under the Nillkin, and gives me wireless charging.

For most uses, by most people, I'd unhesitatingly recommend the Honor 5X (and have! lol).

Actually, my Lumia is getting pretty long in the tooth, and if Microsoft doesn't get off their tush and do something, I'm going to be forced to move off Windows mobile ...and precisely due to my experience with the 5X, Huawei has moved VERY far up the list of makers I'd consider buying from. I've been quite favorably impressed with my experience with this phone. Kudos Huawei.

People can't hear me when I am using headset with this phone 6/2/2017 1:56:28 PM

Pros: Just received this phone, setup is easy.

Cons: People can't hear me when I am making calls with headset. I have tried a few Apple headset, B&O headset, all have the same issue.

Overall Review: Called customer service. I was told to use Huawei headset since the phone maybe incompatible with other headset. That's very surprising since I never heard this before. Besides, why should I buy Huawei headset for this phone since I have so many headset around the house.

The do offer to have the phone ship back to them but they will test it with Huawei headset only. If there is no trouble found, they will ship it back to me. I am returning it since I don't know to stuck with a phone that I can't use with any other headset.

Hello Cheng,

Thank you so much for your feedback .

We will be more than glad to assist you with your concern. Let me provide you the following information.
There are three major headset standards: CTIA, OMTP, and TRS (three sections). CTIA headsets can be used normally with Huawei phones, as Huawei headsets are designed to the CTIA standard. But OMTP or TRS headsets are not compatible with Huawei phones. If a non-Huawei headset does not work with your phone, it could be an OMTP headset, or it has a different internal design to a Huawei headset. For superior audio quality and wired control, use the headset that came with your Huawei phone.

Maybe that's the reason of why you were unable to use other brands headsets

We really hope that you can give us a second chance in the future. BG

An Average Rating borne of competing extremes 5/5/2017 1:10:47 AM

Pros: The pros are pretty self evident: price, materials, fingerprint scanner (and an accurate one at that), dual sim, etc. But for every great thing about this phone there is an equal amount of huge pitfalls. To be fair though, the screen is great (albeit not Gorilla glass) but more than adequate for media.

Cons: To start with a con that follows a pro: the second SIM card can only access 2G (which is terrible now that ATT has discontinued support for 2G towers and other carriers will begin doing the same).

Now to the worst cons:

1. EMUI. The lack of an app drawer, and the knockoff iOS feel may make you want to install a launcher but beware of

2. Installing 3rd party launchers will make your phone lag worse than a Windows 95 tower on dialup trying to download torrents and stream Netflix. I tried Nova, Go, etc... The only launcher that won't make this phone go catatonic is its native Huawei. Which really boils down to a major hardware design flaw which would have been super cheap to avoid:

3. RAM. I cannot think of any rational excuse for only including 2gb of ram on a phone whose UI and hardware demand a bare minimum of 4gb to function properly. This would be the equivalent of trying to run Windows 10 on a brand new MOBO/unlocked i7 CPU but with only an old 256mb DDR RAM stick from the turn of the millennium. At least they could have made the ram expandable, right?

Overall Review: Really, there are a lot of little design perks you discover as you go with this model, and I don't want to minimize them - but there are an equal amount of infuriating design flaws where something SHOULD work great with all the bells and whistles that this device has - but is hindered by the laziness or shortsightedness of one particular flaw holding everything back and bottlenecking the overall performance. I lost count of how many thousands of times this phone has completely lagged into being frozen during extremely light use. You have to be completely anal retentive about closing background tasks and apps due to this. But if you know what to do, and you have the correct tools -and maybe a soldering iron for upgrading the ram - this can be a great phone.

Way-to-Go, Huawei! 5/2/2017 7:59:14 AM

Pros: Fast, Capable, User-Friendly

Cons: None

Overall Review: I would recommend this phone a thousand times over. 60-year-old Smartphone holdout (yep - that's me!). Learned to use this overnight on a forced-march for a contract requiring 2FA - was a cakewalk! Has enough tools, simple menus, intuitive shortcuts (I know - most of this is just Android, but the integration by Huawei HELPS!). Cost was superior. Call holding is AWESOME - we hold calls that our IPhone 6 & 7 friends are dropping in the same areas! Same for Data networks - we Geocache, and are often in fringe areas - VERY "fringe", like...hey, was that an Armadillo? (we're in KY) - and most often can get some coverage.

But there is a downside - now I want an Honor 8 for some more power, better camera...guess I'm hooked 8-D BUT, I'm staying with my 5X - it gets everything done, is paid for, and costs me $43.50/month (total) on a GoPhone Unlimited.
