A fingerprint sensor is essential in any flagship device. Securing your phone is made easier without the hassles of entering pins or troublesome pattern unlock.

1. Instant Unlocking


The honor 5X uses their newer Fingerprint Identification 2.0 that offers better performance, accuracy and it unlocks in just 0.5 seconds. Unlike other smartphones, setting it up requires only 6 taps.

Unlocking the honor 5x with your finger is incredibly quick and it works with partial touches or with damp fingertips. On top of that, it constantly learns more about your fingerprint and it gets more accurate each time you use it.

2. Selfies made Easy


For a 5.5” smartphone, the honor 5X can be big for those with smaller hands. For those who love to take selfies, you can take the shot using the fingerprint sensor. There’s no need to stretch your thumb, just hold the device securely and tap the sensor gently with your index finger.

3. Fingerprint Dialling


Your favourite contacts is just one touch away. The honor 5X allows you to preset a contact number to a specific fingerprint. Once registered, you can call your friends instantly even while the screen is locked.
