Honor’s £150 budget smartphone is in the house! Later this week I’ll be giving a thorough test of the Honor 4X, and its not-too-shabby 13-megapixel camera. The same week I hope to be taking delivery of Honor’s other new release, the Honor 6 Plus – but more of that another day.

The dual-SIM LTE phone (Cat 4) is powered by a 64-bit octo-core HiSilicon Kirin 620 SoC, with 8GB of internal storage (plus microSDXC expansion), 2GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch 720×1280 pixel display. It comes with Android KitKat but an upgrade to Lollipop is imminent.

On paper that makes it an ideal contender to take on the likes of the 4G Moto G, which is of course exactly one of the comparisons I’ll be making later on.

Meanwhile, here’s a quick look at the phone as I start to get things set up. It’s important to note that is a review model, so the only other contents of the box was a EU charger. No other paperwork, headphones – or anything.

If you have any questions about this phone, please comment below so I can include the answers in my first impressions review.
