The Honor 5X is a very particular phone that many wouldn't like. Its size alone makes it a phablet and it's on the cheaper end that some people might not like.
But there are so many other phones out there that now offer high-end spec but don't charge lots of money for it. It's not all about the iPhone 6S Plus.
Here is my selection of phones I think might be worth your interest.
Huawei Mate 8
If you're looking for something a little like the Honor 5X, but with a slightly more premium feel – the Huawei Mate 8 is the ultimate choice. Produced by Honor's parent company, this the Honor 5X is quite clearly based upon this 6-inch phablet, and is not embarrassed to show it.
The Huawei Mate 8 does come with a slightly higher spec though such as the 32GB of internal storage, 8MP front facing camera and 4GB of RAM.
But you pay for that a little with the extra PRICE. That said, you still compare this to the iPhone 6S Plus or the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and this phone looks cheap for a phablet.

The indie darling of the Chinese phone market released its latest large screen device in July last year in the form of the OnePlus 2. At the time it didn't garner the critical acclaim that the original phone did, but the OnePlus 2 does have a lot to love.
You can now only buy the 64GB version of the OnePlus 2, but the controversial invite system has been dropped making it much easier to just jump online and buy one.
You won't have NFC support on this phone, and it's missing a few of the internal bands you'd want if you need signal everywhere you go – but it's pretty hard to go wrong with these phones.

Moto X Style
Then there's one of the latest phones from Motorola that once again offers up high-end spec without going for a large price. It features a slightly larger screen than the Honor 5X at 5.7-inches.
The camera is a real highlight on the Moto X Style with a huge 21MP sensor on the back with phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash and auto-HDR technology.
There's a strong 3000mAh battery inside that means you're going to get some good life and a selection of different storage types as well as microSD support.
If you're looking for something a little sturdier than the Honor 5X, I'd recommend grabbing a hold of a Moto X Style. It's thicker design can be a big selling point compared to the light Honor 5X, but it's up to you to what you'd like in your pocket.
