It’s always a good idea to check out battery life of a prospective purchase, and Fone Arena has conducted its usual array of battery performance testing on the Huawei Honor 5X. The four categories of testing were Talk Time, 3G Browsing, WiFi Browsing, and Video Playback. The Honor 5X battery life results were then placed on charts comparing the performance with several other popular smartphones. As well as the Moto G 3rd gen and OnePlus X, just some of the others included are the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note, Lenovo Vibe P1m, and Samsung Galaxy On5.
For Talk Time (see image directly below) the Huawei Honor 5X managed a time of 25 hours and 2 minutes, putting it in equal second spot alongside the Moto G 3rd gen and Samsung Galaxy On5. The OnePlus X took top spot on 33 hours and 19 minutes, while out of ten phones the Kult 10 was at the bottom of the table on just 11 hours and 7 minutes.
The Honor 5X attained a time of 5 hours and 31 minutes for 3G Browsing, putting it firmly mid-table. The OnePlus X was above it in third place with 5 hours and 33 minutes while the Moto G 3rd gen was nearer to the bottom on 5 hours exactly. This time the Lenovo Vibe P1m was at the top of the table with 6 hours and 10 minutes while the Kult 10 was last again with 3 hours and 50 minutes.
Moving on to WiFi Browsing the Honor 5X managed to last for 6 hours and 11 minutes (image below.) This time that placed it close to the bottom of the chart. The Moto G 3rd gen and OnePlus X were both above it on 6 hours and 40 minutes and 6 hours and 39 minutes respectively. The Lenovo Vibe P1m was first again on a time of 14 hours and 38 minutes, while the Xolo Black 1X was languishing behind on a lowly 5 hours.
For the final category of Video Playback the winner was once again the Vibe P1m with a time of 16 hours and 5 minutes, although we should bear in mind that this phone has a 4000 mAh battery. As you can see in the image below, the Honor 5X gained a respectable third place with 12 hours and 29 minutes. The Moto G 3rd gen was in seventh position with 10 hours, and perhaps surprisingly the OnePlus X was at the very bottom of the table on 6 hours and 39 minutes.
