    New Phone: I was messing with the lock screen options and set a pin and finger print options, and now I don't know how to get back to slide to unlock, I disabled the fingerprint option. Thank You

    This might work. It's modified from the 5x manual;

    1 On the home screen, touch Settings.
    2 Under All, touch Screen lock & passwords.
    3 Touch Password > Pattern. Change Pattern to Swipe.

    italics are not in the manual but my contribution.

    Thanks l contacted Honor 5 tech support, they couldn't find a solution either, so I just reset the phone, I should probably learn how to root this phone.

    Well a factory reset usually works for almost everything but I only suggest it as a last resort. Welcome to the Android Forums Railroadertwo.
