Check these 5 heavily discounted phones on Gearbest [Sponsored]

Black Friday has arrived and Gearbest is also getting in on the discounted festivities, offering deals on a variety of gadgets.

Gearbest offers a variety of eclectic brands, but what if you’re looking for a big discount on popular smartphones? Here are some of the better discounts you should check out.

Huawei Honor 6X (from $244 to $190)

The Honor range is renowned for being cheaper than Huawei’s standard phones anyway. But the brand new Honor 6X sees an even bigger discount.

Opt for this phone and you’re essentially getting a turbocharged version of the P8 Lite 2017. It’s got the same Kirin 655 processor and a full HD screen, but adds 4GB of RAM, a 3340mAh battery and a 12MP+2MP dual-camera layout.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 (from $303 to $230)

The Mi Max 2 offers a massive 6.4-inch full HD screen, power-efficient Snapdragon 625 chip, mammoth 5300mAh battery, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. You can also expect a 12MP main camera and 5MP front-facing camera.

The Zenfone 4 Max Plus offers a mid-range MTK6750 processor, 5.5-inch 720p screen, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The addition of a 13MP+8MP dual camera and large 5000mAh battery and you’ve got a solid combination.
