On the other end, the Honor 6X is one of the best budget flagships in 2017 offering dual cameras, long battery life, and a sturdy metal build. Here is how we can compare both these mid-range handsets, so as to know which is the best device to pick up.

While the Honor 6X features the resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels.
