Honor X5 Plus Price in Nepal, Review, Specs [Updated Price 2024]

Honor X5 Plus Review

The Honor X5 Plus is a wonderful smartphone at about Rs. 15,000. The phone’s main camera is amazing, and it looks gorgeous. The phone’s performance is its one real flaw, though.

Honor introduced the Honor X5 Plus, an entry-level smartphone, and the Honor X6a in Nepal earlier this month. Despite having nearly equal specifications, the Honor X5 Plus costs less than the X6a, at Rs. 15,490 for the only 4/64GB model.

The phone is in competition with the Redmi 12C and Infinix Hot 30i, two other budget smartphones. At the moment, the Redmi 12C is the top phone in Nepal under Rs. 15,000.

Will the Honor X5 Plus succeed in becoming the greatest entry-level phone with its release? In my Honor X5 Plus review, let’s find out.

  • Back: 50 MP (f/1.8) main camera, (f/2.4) depth camera
  • Front: 5 MP (f/2.2)

The X5 Plus from HONOR was carefully designed to be as affordable as possible, and this attitude is carried over into its photography features. A 50-megapixel f/1.8 primary camera and a 2-megapixel f/2.4 depth sensor make up the rear camera configuration. The 5-megapixel f/2.2 selfie camera is hidden away inside the teardrop-shaped notch on the screen.


The performance borders on compromise in certain areas. Although there is a different performance setting, the phone is still a touch slow. Even yet, it’s difficult to overlook the slowness; during my testing, the majority of games and even the user interface crashed a few times. One possible explanation for this could be that the device has a fully functional Magic OS.

I wasn’t prepared for it to be “that” horrible, so this kind of turned off my taste buds. Positively, I had no trouble seeing videos and going through social media.


  • 6.56″ TFT LCD, 16.7 million colors
  • HD+ (720×1612 px), 20.15:9
  • 90Hz refresh rate

The 6.56-inch TFT panel on the Honor X5 Plus has a resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels, making it a reasonably sharp screen considering its pricing. It would have been lovely to have a full HD panel, though, even with that.

Surprisingly large is the chin, but the bezels are acceptable. Still, using this gadget for content viewing is still rather pleasant and acceptable. Furthermore, this may be the first smartphone that offers 90 Hz for less than NPR 15,500.

The screen doesn’t reach the maximum refresh rate very often.

I just gave the X5 Plus a lot of credit for having a 90Hz panel, but the unfortunate fact is that it doesn’t always achieve that. This could be the result of the phone using a low-end chip that isn’t strong enough to push those frames.


  • 163.32×75.07×8.35mm, 188g
  • The fingerprint sensor on the power button

Its design seems to be that of a standard phone. Although the rear camera is the same as every other device I have seen from Redmi, Realme, and other brands, other than that, I wouldn’t say it is poor.

Although the Honor X5 Plus is a somewhat large phone, I’ve never had any problems carrying it around. It weighs less than 190 grams and has a fairly even weight distribution because of its plastic construction. Furthermore, the power button’s fingerprint sensor is fast.


  • MagicOS 7.1 on top of Android 13

Though Honor appears to have attempted to imitate iOS in certain ways, I still think the design of the system apps is good, particularly the control center. Everything about the phone app, notes, and settings is really attractive. With this price range, Honor’s Magic OS appeals to me sufficiently that I would recommend it.


  • 5200mAh LiPo
  • 10W charging

Let’s talk about power: the Honor X5 Plus has a respectable amount of battery life. Even when I had the phone in “Performance” mode all the time, it still lasted me more than a day. But using the 10W adaptor that comes with it to recharge it again takes a very long time about two hours.

Honor X5 Plus: Pros and Cons


  • 90Hz refresh rate
  • Quality OS experience
  • Good battery life


  • Subpar performance
  • Slow charging
  • Mediocre cameras

Honor X5 Plus Review: Conclusion

Here, a good number of concessions are being made. The gadget offers good battery life, a high-quality OS experience, and the best refresh rate available for this price. However, the lack of cameras, slower charging, and sluggish performance eclipse all of this.

The Redmi 12C is a more affordable and superior phone. Better performance and a better camera are offered by this replacement. However, charging is comparable. Also, opt for the Samsung A04 if you want the greatest camera in this price range. But if you can, I would strongly advise spending an additional 2.5k and going all out for the Redmi 12 (review), which beats out everything else and offers a feature-rich bundle at a reasonable cost.
