It’s pretty obvious that the Xiaomi Mi 6X has the lead on this one, which is actually understandable considering the extra price that you’d be paying to get it. However, that doesn’t mean that the Honor 7X is a lousy competitor.

Honor’s offering still offers a compelling value for the price. It has a 5.93-inch screen with a Full HD+ resolution, probably the best display you can get from a sub-Php10k device. The Honor 7X also runs on a Kirin 659 processor, which is the same chipset found on the more expensive Huawei Nova 2i.

The Honor 7X also has a 3340mAh battery, 330mAh larger than the 3010mAh battery capacity of the Xiaomi Mi 6X. It also has a facial recognition feature, which the Mi 6X lacks.

But then again, the Xiaomi Mi 6X ultimately wins this comparison — at least in the specs sheet. For starters, it runs on the newer Android 8.1 Oreo, in contrast to the 7.0 Nougat of the 7X.

Under the hood, it is powered by the more trusted Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, equipped with a sharper 20-megapixel selfie camera, and better 12-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual rear sensors.

However, you have to pay more to get all those extra features. In the Philippines, the Honor 7X has an official price of Php10,990. On the other hand, the local pricing for the Xiaomi Mi 6X is still unknown. But in China, the Mi 6X starts at CNY1,599, approximately Php13,300 when converted directly Philippine peso before taxes and other dues.

In conclusion, if you want to save that extra cash, go with the Honor 7X. But if you have the means, spending more for the Xiaomi Mi 6X to get better hardware and software is the way to go.

  1. Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo are leading the way, but of all these brands, Xiaomi is the only one that really gives value for money, the rest are typical companies spending so much in advertising and marketing that they are unable to offer value for money. Go figure
