Our Verdict

The Huawei Honor 6X is definitely a powerful contestant in the budget/performance scene. Realistically though, there are quite a lot of competitors in the market for this price range. Devices such as the Moto G4/G4 Plus currently reign on this category of phones. However, all things considered, the Huawei Honor 6X is definitely worth a shot.
