WATCH: Sneak peak of the Honor X5 Plus

The Honor X5 Plus is finally in the country after being launched in scintilating fashion last week. The 5200mAh battery lithium polymer battery powered new arrival has quite the potential, but is it a contender?

What’s inside?

The Honor X5 Plus comes in two interesting colours, a Cyan lake and midnight black.  If you asked me what Cyan Lake looks like, we would lose our shot at winning Who Want’s to Be a Millionnaire.

Back to the serious contender the Honor X5 Plus.  Weighing 188g, at a height of 163.32mm, this latest arrival into the country seems budget friendly with features that make the X5 seem as though it were the main attraction.

The Design

Looking at the Honor X5 Plus, users gain a sense that the device brings a prestigious look and feel.  The glistening starlit inspired design is compelling but the glistening solid square frame around the camera sparkles just right enough to give the elusion of premium, and who are we to complain?

Lets looks at the camera.

A 50 MP camera is among two lenses on the rear alongside a sensor. We can solidly expect the Honor X5 Plus to deliver a solid bokeh effect alongside a decent time lapse video.

Let’s do this, the minute we have it in our clutches we’ll go even further on what other smart features users can enjoy using the latest Honor X5 Pro.

A 6.56 inch fullView panel display  ensures an immersive screen which seems like a solid trade off when considering the device is only entry level.

We see the battery is one of the largest for smartphone devices at 5200mAh which translates to more than 16 hours of non stop video playback.

It does run on MagicOS 7.1 coupled with Android 13 and has a Helio G36 chipset. We see a 4GB+64GB memory, a 5MP seflie camera and a MediaTek Helio G36 processor.
