The Honor 5X arrives in Europe. All the details, right here.

I’ve got to admire Honor. Yes, they’re “really” a brand from Huawei but that, in a way, just makes them even better in my book. They deliver good phones at good prices and that’s something that you can’t really argue with. The Honor 5X has already appeared in …
