With the Huawei Honor 4x smartphone coming soon, another dual-SIM LTE model on the market. The XL display is 5.5 inches and dissolves with HD on. The price is not yet announced offizill only in US dollars, with $ 299th What does the model? We looked at the Honor 4x closer.

display

Nice large, but technically middle class: On the screen with rich 5.5-inch screen brings Huawei just under 1280 x 720 pixels. Can you in everyday life with particularly bright, the resolution does not act. But this fits into the picture: For Huawei Honor brings the series so as a kind of cheap second brand. Therefore, one is looking at the case of 4x the brand names also in vain. Instead stands tall “Honor” on the back.Advantageously: The touch keys for Home, etc. are integrated into the housing frame below the screen and thereby take any scene away.

operating system

The Honor 4x is provided by Huawei with Android 4.4. The control of the two SIM cards is integrated directly into the usual menus and functions without mystery. Select a SIM card for mobile internet, preset numbers for outgoing calls or individually select before phoning – everything works quickly.

Dual-SIM

It is a so-called standby dual SIM model. This means that while making calls or SMS messages can communicate only one of the two cards with their respective network. As long as we speak to either of the two, but both phones are accessible. This is not to complain about the standard.

Honor 4x from the side

In Honor 4x Test the flat for a phablet construction stands out: only 8.65 mm depth (height: 15.3 cm, width: 7.7 cm).

Incomprehensible, however, is that it is not a quad-band phone, which was supposed to be self-evident.

This means that of the four GSM frequencies this country dominates the Honor 4x only three of the four UMTS bands even just two. Where only one of the other frequency bands are available, it therefore has no reception.

The two SIM slots of Honor 4x are easily accessible in the test. The battery is replaceable.

Mobile Internet

Highlight of Honor is clearly the LTE support for both SIM cards. . Thus, it is one of the first dual-SIM devices that enable mobile surfing on the 4G standard
During a show on LTE (or UMTS) access, each other can also be online – but only in significantly slower 2G standard.

But is also crucial, which frequencies are available. And this is where the Honor 4x unfortunately weaknesses. At least in the previously announced by Huawei specifications.Because with LTE and UMTS only 2 of the 3 or 4 frequencies used in Germany are supported.
Whether there will be a customized version for Europe or Germany, it is currently unclear.

SIM 1

  • GSM: 900/1800 / 1900MHz
  • UMTS: 900/2100
  • LTE (FDD): 1800/2100 MHz

SIM 2

  • GSM: 900/1800 / 1900MHz
  • UMTS: 900/2100 MHz
  • LTE (FDD): 1800/2100 MHz

Honor 4x Test Camera

The back is pleasantly simple, but looks elegant. Striking: The Brand Name Huawei missing, “Honor” is all about focus.Above the 13-megapixel camera.

The current standard provides the Honor 4x even with the two cameras. 13 megapixels on the back and 5 megapixels for selfies read like the manual, how to make a smartphone today must at least provide, if you’re not playing in the entry-level segment.

power

With the 1.2GHz quad-core MSM8916 processor which is 4x easy fast enough for everything that needs to be done on the smartphone normally. With apps and games it can keep up with, but also the Adreno 306 GPU provides. Good 2G RAM and low 8G ROM – enough for smooth images in the most popular applications.

But Graphically too complicated the games should not be. Gaming freaks who are on a low-priced Huawei Phone, should there rather to Honor 6 access. Lots of storage not also the microSD slot: Indicated a maximum storage capacity of 32GB.

Conclusion

Good approaches, but also some weaknesses: The Honor 4x scores first with a huge display, elegant housing and LTE on SIM 1 and 2. But in detail, there are some suggestions for improvement.

The higher resolution is still negligible – but the lack of frequency bands are a real shortcoming. Unless one uses his smartphone anyway always only where the supported GSM, UMTS and LTE frequencies are available. This must be so weigh yourself.

Optical and price makes the Honor 4x last but not least a good impression. The smartphone will soon appear in a gold and a white version. The launch is certain not exactly – the group called Q2, 2015.
