Both the OnePlus X and Huawei Honor 5X have been released back in November 2015 and they’re budget friendly smartphones with a premium design and decent specifications. We must specify that the first device is a mid-tier, while the other is a phablet and below we’ll talk about their screens, processors, cameras and batteries.
The OnePlus X measures 140x69x6.9mm and has a weight of 138 grams. Its back is made of zirconia ceramic, being available in two colors: Onyx (black) and Champagne (white), and the body is surrounded by a metal frame composed of a brushed anodized aluminum with chamfered edges. On the other hand, the Huawei Honor 5X measures 151.3×76.3×8.2mm and weights 158 grams, but its body is made entirely of aluminum and has a fingerprint scanner below the camera.
The OnePlus X comes with an AMOLED display of 5-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 441 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Huawei Honor 5X has an IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports the same resolution, but which results in a lower pixel density of 401 ppi.
Procesors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The OnePlus X features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, a quad-core Krait 400 CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, an Adreno 330 graphics card and 3GB of RAM. The Huawei Honor 5X has a Qualcomm MSM8939v2 Snapdragon 616 chipset, an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.5GHz, an Adreno 405 graphics card and it comes in two RAM variants of 2GB and 3GB.
Both devices have been released with an internal memory of 16GB, which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.
The OnePlus X sports a primary camera of 13MP that offers LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, HDR, panorama, face detection and a secondary camera of 8MP. The Huawei Honor 5X has also a primary camera of 13MP with LED flash, autofocus, face detection, geo-tagging and panorama, but the front camera is weaker at 5MP.
Both devices have non-removable batteries, but the OnePlus X is smaller and doesn’t have too much room for a gigantic battery, so its capacity is 2525 mAh, while the Huawei Honor 5X houses a 3000 mAh cell.
