    Chris of Phandroid just published his review of the Honor 5X and says there is "insane value" in the device. He really enjoys the build quality, the fingerprint sensor, battery life and the display.

    Chris felt the performance isn't very good, but he admits that it is more than likely a perspective issue since he is so used to using devices like the Huawei Mate 8.

    It's available for $159. I'm fighting my budget if I make the move. :D I currently have an LG G Stylo on Marshmallow Rooted. I love my MetroPCS service and my Stylo is running beautifully but that Honor 5x is really at a good price.

    Decisions, decisions.:thinking::p:D

    I'd say its a steal @ $159. I think there is even CM available for it, but I think the fingerprint scanner doesn't work yet. :(

    Fingerprint scanner in the CM ROM or stock Honor 5x?

    Stock works fine. It is to the point that I'm lost when I pick up a phone without the scanner.

    As long as the fingerprint scanner works stock, I'm good. Thanks for the tip

    I think at this price point, I might be able to convince the Mrs. to dump her old S3. :)

    If you ar going from an S3 this is a huuuge jump. My wife went from an S3 to the P8 Lite to the Huawei GX8 (nearly identical phone to the 5X) and loves it.
