The Honor 5X, available in a choice of either Gold, Silver or Grey.
Surprisingly good is how I would put it, the primary camera is 13MP with a F2.0 aperture. And it comes with the usual range of filters and features that we have come to expect from Huawei, I mean Honor… The good food mode takes super-macro shots, so perfect for pictures of flowers and food for the instagrammers out there and the ‘perfect selfie’ mode lets you crank up the levels to 10 so all blemishes are smoothened out to make you look as etherial as possible. Sadly, Optical Image Stabilisation has been left out and thats one of the main gripes I have with the phone but the 88-degree angle on the 5-MP front-facing camera almost makes up for it.
