The Honor 6X is a bargain among flagships

01 March 2017 / 12:00GMT

Time was, spending less than £300 on a smartphone meant risking a rough ride through shoddy components and sub-par performance. No more: the Honor 6X (£224, out now) is the latest in a line of pound-friendly phones - and it brings some serious specs to the table. Sure, its design is hardly revolutionary, but there’s no arguing with an octa-core chip, two-day battery life and a dual lens camera setup that should deliver stellar snaps, whatever the weather. It’ll be a boon for the impatient, too, unlocking in just 0.3 seconds via the fingerprint reader. Talk about getting your money’s worth.
