The all metal Snapdragon powered Honor 5X is available today for $200

Huawei wowed us at CES 2016 with its all metal, $199.99 priced, full featured Android Lollipop smartphone named the Honor 5X. Huawei is looking to bust the budget category wide open with a device that can serve all of your needs while carrying an amazing build at the same time. With smartphones under $200 we have become used to sub par displays, but the 5X comes with a full HD 1080p display found on higher end counterparts.

It comes in silver, grey and black and can be found at three outlets – Amazon.com, Newegg.com, and HiHonor.com. Keep in mind the Honor 5X is designed to work with networks such as T-Mobile, Cricket Wireless, and AT&T.
