Honor 6X (Swag Phone) has made a complete appearance for us today at an event held at Delhi. The event was as usual a pompous one with some Bollywood faces. The phone has been termed as the swag phone for a good time across all the social media handles. Infact, it has created quite a hype. Or did it not? I’ll quickly take you through the specification of Honor 6X or the swag phone and share my personal thoughts by the end of the post.
Honor 6X Specs Sheet
Honor 6X has the earpiece, front camera and proximity sensors on the front side. There are the usual Android capacitive touch buttons along the lower side of the screen along with the Honor logo. The back panel has the dual camera, LED Flash and fingerprint sensors. The right edge has the Volume Buttons and Power Button. The left edge has the SIM tray only. The lower edge of the phone has a microUSB, speakers and primary mic and the upper edge has the 3.5 mm jack slot and secondary mic.
The dimensions of the swag phone is 150.9 x 76.2 x 8.2 mm and weighs 162 grams. It does not seem to be a bulky phone at all.
Screen and Display
Honor 6X has a 5.5 inch LTPS ISP LCD screen with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (403 PPI). The device has the custom Huawei UI i.e. Emotion UI 4.1. The phone comes with a 2.5 D curved glass and a sleek, high-grade glass body that helps keep scratch off from the phone’s body. The manufacturers claim that the swag phone has inbuilt eye comfort for long duration viewing as well as sunlight display to make the phone viewable outdoors.
The Swag Phone has a HiSilicon Kirin 655 chipset that has 8 core. Out of the 8, 4 cores clock at 2.1 GHz and other 4 cores clock at 1.7 GHz. It has a GPU of Mali-T830MP2. The OS of the phone is Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is planned to get Android 7.0 Nougat soon. Honor 6X comes in 2 variants – 3 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM and 4 GB RAM and 64 GB ROM. The external storage for both the phones are up to 256 GB, but it uses up the SIM 2 slot.The price for both the variants are different.
The swag phone is a dual nano-SIM phone. Other wireless connectivity features are Wi Fi, Wi Fi Direct, hotspot, bluetooth, Infrared port, FM Radio and microUSB port.
This is the most hyped feature of the Honor 6X, probably the reason to be named the Swag Phone. It has dual camera (12 MP 2MP). Other camera features are phase detection auto-focus, LED Flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama and video recording at 1080p. The front camera has 8 MP lens which allows video recording at 1080p.
As mentioned above, the swag phone has a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. Besides, it also has accelerometer, proximity, compass senors.
Honor 6X comes with a non removable battery of capacity of 3340 mAh. There is no fast charging technology in the phone and it might be a serious issue in near future.
Honor 6X has 2 pricing for each variant of the phone. The 3 GB RAM + 32 GB ROM is priced at Rs. 12,999 and 4 GB RAM + 64 GB ROM is priced at Rs. 15,999.

My Take on Honor 6X
Honor 5X is quite a good device. I had my share of high expectations from the Honor 6X. However, I still don’t get the point of Swag Phone yet. What is so swag about the phone? People using the phone says the camera does have a lot of features. There are quite a few filter options but the camera does not perform well in low light condition. Another drawback of the device is the absence of quick charge.
Another point to be noted about the Honor 6X is, only the Rs. 12,999 version has been listed at Amazon. If that is the case, then the phone that is available to us is quite a standard device and there would be other devices in the same range that would be a better option than Honor 6X. We could wait for a couple of days before concluding some more facts.
