Budget Battle: Honor 6X vs XTouch UNIX Pro

April 3, 2017

Looking for an inexpensive yet functional device? Check these two devices that won’t burn a hole in your wallet.

Most flagship devices usually cost more than 2000+ AED, and not everyone is able to shell out that amount of money for a smartphone. Thankfully, cheaper alternatives are already present, including the recently launched XTouch Unix Pro and the Honor 6X.

Both smartphones cost less than 1000 AED, making it fit for users looking for a decent device that won’t break the bank. Let’s check out both smartphones and see how each one compares.

Both the Honor 6X and the XTouch UNIX Pro feature similar design aspects: solid metallic bodies and surround the entirely, along with full glass fronts. The Honor 6X comes in colors of gray, gold and silver while the XTouch Unix Pro comes in gold and black.

From the specifications, the XTouch UNIX Pro clearly leads the way in terms of specifications – offering more RAM and storage compared to the Honor 6X. But that doesn’t mean the Honor 6X is slower, 4 GB of RAM and an octa-core processor is more than enough to run your favorite Android apps.

Speaking of Android, both smartphones run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box – it’s an older operating system, but you can’t expect much from a budget smartphone. No word though if both devices are being planned for an Android Nougat upgrade.

They also have similar price points. The cheaper Honor 6X retails for 919 AED while the XTouch UNIX Pro will set you back 999 AED. The price difference is minimal, but as you can see the specs make up for it.

While the Honor 6X has the backing of Huawei which is now a major global brand, the locally made XTouch UNIX Pro recently has gotten support from Bollywood actress Sunny Leone, who just recently became XTouch’s product ambassador.

If you’re looking for the cheapest option then I’d suggest going with the Honor 6X, else if you want to beef up the specifications a little bit then go for the XTouch UNIX Pro. Both are very capable devices that should be able to handle most of the tasks a premium smartphone can do at less than half the price.
