The latest trend that the smartphone companies are following is the dual camera. The latest to join the queue is the Huawei Honor 6X smartphone. The last gadget with dual camera feature that we talked about here at on our blog was Coolpad Cool1. Latest gadget that we have got with us to review and share our first hand experience is from the world-renowned smartphone company Huawei’s sub-brand – Honor.
Honor 6X rolled out at CES 2017 was first showcased in China in October 2016. The phone comes in 2 variants with the difference in their internal storage and RAM – 3GB RAM + 32 GB internal storage and other with 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage.
The very first thing I do when I get to review the gadget is that I check out its design and looks followed by clicking few pictures from it to see the picture quality. Then I start checking out the specs and other features. Today, I’ll be sharing my first hands-on experience of Honor 6X and its camera performance. So, without wasting much time further, have a look at Honor 6X first impressions and camera samples to know more about the product.
Design and Display
Huawei Honor 6X comes with a metallic body and curved edges which makes it easier for the user to hold the gadget comfortably. I found the phone handy and ergonomically smart.
The unit I have with me is white in colour with silver back. There are two minimal cameras and flashlight at the back. Along with it there is a fingerprint sensor that is placed just below the camera.
The phone has 5.5 IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The display is sharp and colors lays no stress on the eyes of the users. The ambient light sensors, outdoor visibility and abrupt light condition are the additional factors that together work in favor of the unit.
The phone doesn’t at all feel slippery even though there is a non-removable metallic back with plastic caps on top and bottom.
Look wise, I find the unit quite appealing and its sleek design is what I like. The smartphone will surely make you feel happy about having owned the unit if you decide to go for the device.
The highlight of Honor 6x is its 12-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel secondary camera present on the phone helps in creating depth of field or blur the background that is its USP. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel shooter. Camera of the unit is another thing that made me drool over.
The pictures clicked from this smartphone is of high quality. What else a person obsessed with clicking the pictures here and there could have asked for?
Personally, I find the bokeh effects that dual-camera creates are awesome. Honor 6X gives DSLR-like bokeh effects and the fact is that the phone is not expensive when we compare it to other cameras. Actually, Honor 6X can be called as the most cheapest dual-camera smartphone right now in the market.
Not only macro shots, Honor 6X is capable of shooting portrait pictures with same blurred backgrounds that make the subject clear and sharper.
The features that photo fanatics like me are sure to appreciate are time-lapse, beauty video, pro video, night shot, light painting, pro photo, HDR, slow motion likewise.
On sliding to the right, I found the settings page with all the options to adjust the shutter sound and image saturation according to my needs.
To check the camera of any device and its picture quality, I make sure to shoot outdoor images and videos. In the case of Honor 6x good shutter speed, image processing and autofocus worked well and the results were quite good. Not just that, the artificial light images are nice.
In the dark where light is low, the pictures don’t turn out to be that satisfactory, but then the camera is not highly disappointing. I will definitely give it good ratings when it comes to outdoor and natural light conditions with satisfactory in low light conditions.
