The device is powered by the latest Quad-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC and features a 2GB of RAM. With the new 4X, Honor is taking on the mid-range segment with a well-specced phablet that could get a lot of people to try a larger handset.

The Honor 4X offers a lot more than just latest hardware, it features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen with good viewing angles. The color reproduction is accurate and not overly saturated, hence ensuring minimum eye strain during long duration use.

The 4X is almost exactly the same size as the OnePlus One, but won’t turn any heads with its looks. The front panel is as non-descript as it gets and could easily be mistaken for a cheaper phone like the basic Redmi 2.

The back, however, features a nice textured finish and a neat camera enclosure. The phone is tough enough to use without additional protection, but a case could certainly help glam it up.

As you hold the device, you will discover the smartphone is very ergonomic, even with a 5.5-inch display. The edges are well curved adding much grip-ability to the phone.

The whole design looks well thought out. Small things like the placement of the power key on a raised edge and the machined speaker grill at the bottom shows to go how throughout the design has been.

The 4X supports dual 4G SIM cards, which means you can enjoy high-speed mobile data and keep your cheap messaging plan too. The SIM management tool lets you choose which one to use for data, calls and texts.

There’s a large 3,000 mAh battery that keeps things humming for hours – I got through a whole day of calls, texts and gaming with about 40 percent of juice to spare.
