It’s been talked about for a few weeks now, and the day is finally here. Huawei’s first U.S.-bound honor smartphone, the honor 5X, is now available for purchase from various online retailers. For just $199.99, you’ll not only snag one of the best cheap Android smartphones out there, but also one of the best dual-SIM handsets on the market. As of now it looks like all three color variants – Dark Grey, Daybreak Silver and Sunset Gold – are available from Amazon, Newegg and from honor’s website. And if you choose to buy from Newegg, the retailer with throw in a free 32GB microSD card for a limited time.

If you need a refresher, the honor 5X comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 616 processor, a 13MP rear camera and a 3000mAh battery. What makes this device so special is that for the price, you’ll be hard pressed to find a smartphone that feels this premium. It’s made of a metallic chassis and also sports a fingerprint sensor. The software may not be for everyone out there, but honor says it’s working to push out more timely updates to its phones. For more detailed coverage, be sure to check out our full review.
