Huawei Honor 5X for $160 (Unlocked 4G LTE, No Contract)

Mid-range is the new flagship in the world of smartphones these days as technology has advanced to the point where you can have a nice phone without breaking the bank on a flagship (unless you want to or it has must have features or performance).

If you are in the former category, the official NewEgg eBay store is offering the new condition, unlocked with USA warranty, Huawei Honor 5X Metal smartphone (formal name KIW-L24) for $160 with free shipping. You have three colors to pick from (gray, silver or gold) and up to five devices per eBay buyer (NewEgg enforces the limits). Already nearly 900 units got sold as of posting time.

This is a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, with a fingerprint sensor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB on-board storage plus microSD (up to 128GB) and powered by an 8-core Snapdragon. It has two SIM slots, one is nano and the other is micro (adapters are your friends if you need different sizes ~ unless you need two microSIM or larger).

This is an unlocked 4G LTE phone you can use on GSM networks or simply use it as a Wifi-only device. Your choice and you can change your mind at any time. It comes out of the box with Android 5.x and Huawei’s own EMUI skin type thing.

Huawei’s profile in the USA market got a big boost since it was chosen by Google to develop the Nexus 6P, the current Nexus flagship phone. It is an advantage Huaweii can hold over the other big chinese phone makers as they compete for the US market.
