Huawei Honor 5X receives ‘sweet and fluffy’ Marshmallow update stateside

A sleeper hit like few other, the ultra-low-cost, upper mid-range Honor 5X seems to get better with age, like a fine French wine, thanks to amazing discounts and relatively timely software updates.

Hopefully, you were wise and quick to snap up the metal-clad 5.5-incher at $160 a couple of months back, as it’s nowadays available again for around $40 more. Even at $200 though, this is basically a steal, especially after leaving Android 5.1 Lollipop behind to jump on the 6.0 Marshmallow bandwagon.

That’s going down as we speak in the US, only a couple of weeks on the heels of an international rollout start, with proud American Huawei Honor 5X owners treated to the full range of performance, stability, accessibility and security enhancements.

You got Google Now on Tap assistance to look forward to, plus beefed-up voice interaction support across various apps, Doze Mode battery life optimizations, advanced and simplified volume control settings, and a redesigned open apps menu.

Then there’s EMUI 4.0, the latest iteration of Huawei’s proprietary Android skin, which brings neat stuff to the table also, including motion control, drag actions, and one-hand mode. You know the drill – free up sufficient storage space, fill up the tank, connect to Wi-Fi, check for updates, wait and enjoy.
