When we see an annotation added to a brand name such as the Honor X6 and Honor X6a, I am sure most of us would immediately have the idea that it is either a slight improvement or downgrade of the said brand of smartphone. In the case of Honor X6 and Honor X6a, both are budget smartphones with minor differences among them that you have to bear in mind. If you are torn between the two units, then the short but informative blog I prepared for today will serve your purposes. In this blog, I will share with you the differences and important features of Honor X6 and Honor X6a to help you determine which of them best suits your preferences and budget as well. So without any further delays, let’s get right into today’s discussion…
HONOR X6 was recently released and made available to the public. The aim of the company is to develop a smartphone that is functional and has loads of features that accommodate the budget of the general masses. And yes, for the price point of the Honor X6, you will get a chance to own a premium-like smart device without having to spend thousands of dollars, so to speak. The following are just of the best features of the Honor X6 that you have to take note of—
What you’ll initially observe about the Honor X6 is its elegant design that is reminiscent of popular phone brands. In fact, it doesn’t appear to be a budget smartphone at all. Its LCD display has over 90% screen-to-body ratio that gives you more mobility in playing your games and a much-improved way of watching streams or videos from your storage files.
For the price point of the smart device, you can now enjoy the fast and efficient MediaTek Helio G25 which is a known gaming microprocessor. With this being said–the device is excellent for both casual and mid-level gamers because it can load and run some popular gaming titles like PUBG and Mobile Legends. It is also equipped with Android 12 which means that it can run newly-released mobile applications.
Probably the best feature of the Honor X6 is its triple camera which includes a 50 main camera and micro and depth angle which is excellent for taking stunning photos and videos perfect for social media publications. However, the front-facing camera only has 5 MP resolution. Nevertheless, it is still a good value for your money considering the price of the unit.
Honor X6a was released only a few months after the Honor X6. And if you compare both devices, they almost have the same price. And this is because they only have a very few differences. In any case, the following are the features that make the Honor X6a stand out from the rest of the competing budget smartphones—
First and foremost, the design of the Honor X6a has similar characteristics to its predecessor, the Honor X6. The only difference between them is that Honor X6a has a more matte finish that makes them sleek and more elegant.
The Honor X6a model uses the same Android 13 Magic UI software. The Honor X6a has a more powerful version of MediaTek hardware which is the Helio G36 microprocessor chipset. What this means is that it is slightly more capable of loading certain games with higher system requirements.
The camera and video resolution of the Honor X6a are also the same as the Honor X6. The main camera of the unit is also 50 MP which is accompanied by an LED flash. The front-facing camera also provides you only 5 MP of video and camera resolution for selfies and video calls.
If you ask my opinion, you can never go wrong if you choose either Honor X6 or Honor X6a. Although Honor X6a has the hardware advantage, you would hardly notice any dissimilarity between the two models if you are playing your favorite games. Both Honor X6 and Honor X6a run popular games smoothly under medium settings. But the Honor X6a is an obvious option if you want that extra kick when you are running certain applications with high system demands. In addition, both of them are budget phones and the prices are not that far off as well. But if you are particularly conscious about the amount you are going to save from the purchase, then you have to check out Honor X6. As mentioned, they are almost the same with minor differences that you won’t even notice when it comes to overall performance.
