This $250 Smartphone Camera is Incredible

– Hey guys, this is Austin, and this is the brand new Honor 6X So, Honor was cool enough to sponsor this video to give you guys a sneak peek at the phone before it comes out

So this brings dual camera technology down to a smartphone that costs less than $300 So, ooh! I got that in like, one smooth motion We have the actual phone itself The first thing that jumps out to me is that this is a really light phone and I mean that in a good way So even though we have an aluminum build, a 5

5 inch display, and a pretty beefy 3300 milliamp hour battery the phone feels surprisingly small and light in the hand I think a big part of that is the fact that it's got a nice tapered edge on the side which means that when you're holding it it feels like a much smaller and thinner phone than it really is This might be the very first unboxing I've ever done without stupid paperwork Good job, Honor (clapping) even though I'm sure you actually have to put paperwork in the final box, but What I really want to try is the dual lens camera So around back it has a 12 megapixel camera that is backed up by a two megapixel sensor so what this allows you to do is get some additional flexibility after you take a shot So, for example, you can get some additional depth of field, or even change the focus after you take the picture So, if we turn on Wide Aperture mode, how close can we get to the duck and get him in focus? So this actually looks pretty good by itself

So I want to adjust it, I can change the simulated aperture so say I want to close it down to get more stuff in focus I open it up to, say, f/14, the background actually falls away pretty nicely I gotta say, I've tried a couple of, sort of simulated depth of field effects with multiple cameras and usually they're decent, they're kind of okay but I find myself not using them after a while but this might be one of the better implementations This picture looks super clean We have beauty video?! I'm totally going to do that! This is 100% beauty video

Wow, you (laughing) You know what? I need beauty video in my life Can we just shoot, can we turn these cameras to Beauty Video mode? So in addition to having those dual lenses to be able to get some of the cool depth of field effect it also has a solid 12 megapixel camera built in So, if we turn on the Pro Photo mode, so if you get close enough, you can actually get decent depth of field just with the standard camera and I've gotta say, like, the sharpness is really nice Enable Perfect Selfie to make your selfies even more beautiful Oh, we'll see about that

Wha? (laughing) Wow, okay, that's um, that's the perfect selfie I'll give them that I'm not going to say that I take perfect selfies all the time, just most of the time, but this is actually a lot of fun They've done the camera stuff right here There are a lot of modes and they're not super gimmicky, right? So there are some of these things that are really legitimately useful

So, do I have to talk about the phone now, or can I just keep playing with the camera? The 6X is rocking a 55 inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 It's a good panel Color and contrast are both on point and one of the nice things is it actually is a bright display too at around 450 nits Oooh, that's actually really fast

So the 6X also has a fingerprint sensor around back As you can see, it's almost immediate You don't have to press anything, click anything You just rest your finger on the button and (snap) it's unlocked Inside the Honor 6X it's rocking an octa core Kirin 655 processor paired with 3 gigs of memory and 32 gigabytes of storage that you can expand up to 128 gigs if you throw a microSD in

With the efficient processor and big 3340 milliamp hour battery you should be able to get through a full day of use with the 6X, which is really nice considering that it is such a thin phone So, with specs like that the 6X can handle some pretty decent gaming but the real test is going to be, can it handle Train Racing? This sounds incredible Wait, wait, the review: "Good graphics It is very interesting and with good graphics I love this game" I mean, with a review like that, we gotta get some Train Racing in

(Train Racing theme song) Oh, we're moving now! 40, 50, 60, WHOA! 120, 130, oh wait, there's a train, it's a train! No! I didn't see there was a train on the tracks! Okay, so the train life might not be for me however, the Honor 6X can definitely handle Train Simulator 2017, or whatever this game was called So if you want to get your perfect selfie on, the Honor 6X will be available for pre-order starting today for $250 and it will be going on sale on January 15th and of course, all the links you guys need will be in the description of this video So what do you guys think about the 6X? Definitely be sure to let me know in the comments below and I will catch you on the next one
