How does the Honor 5X stack up against its big brother?
With the announcement of the Honor 5C, the Huawei-owned brand brings its best affordable phone yet to market. But it's been a mere six months since the arrival of the Honor 5X, a similarly specced handset at a comparable price point. The main differences on the surface: A larger 5.5-inch screen from the 5X, a faster, more efficient CPU in the 5X, and the bonus of NFC capability in the 5C.
Check below for a quick breakdown of how the two compare, and some side-by-side pics for good measure.
