Huawei Honor 6X has budget camera tricks

Phones
When I first saw the Huawei Honor 6X, I was excited about what it could do as a budget phone. At half the price of a mid-ranger, this one still manages to have good things like an all metal build, a fast and accurate fingerprint reader, and two cameras on the back. Two cameras are something that even the Samsung Galaxy S8 doesn't have. So this is a bit of a feather in [UNKNOWN] cap. Why are they there? To help add depth to your photos. One's got a 12 megapixel lens. And the other, a 2-megapixel lens. There's a mode that you can go into to give you more control over the depth of field, and that's an advanced feature you just don't see [UNKNOWN] at all. There are also Pro photo and video modes on here, some really neat editing tools, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for those grinning selfies. But here's the thing, although the Honor 6X has way more photo tools, the Motorola MOTO G5 PLUS takes cleaner, clearer photos all around. In fact, it's simply the better phone all around. The Honor 6X was less comfortable to hold and use. It's battery didn't last as long, it isn't splash proof. It runs an older version of Android. It won't let you make mobile payments. And although it's got a faster processor on benchmark tests it sometimes lags. Both of these phones have micro SD cards support for up to 128 gigabytes, but the Moto G5+ has an option with more storage for a little bit more money. Here's the thing, you can't buy a Moto G5+ everywhere, and that cuts the Honor 6x a break. Because the phone's benefits even out when you match it up to the Moto G5. Neither of those phones has NFC for mobile payments, and the Honor 6X has the abundant camera tools and a larger screen for those who prefer room to roam. So, while the Honor 6X camera tech is definitely on the right track, the phone just doesn't have what it takes, compared to the budget king
