We don’t usually expect much from $200 smartphones, which is why we were surprised the first time we took a look at the honor 5X, during CES 2016. It seemed like too much phone for that price, and today you can get it for a little less.

Slick Deals is featuring a nice little deal that will get you a $25 dollar discount on the unlocked, 16 GB honor 5X. Simply use coupon code “MBL160322A” during checkout, when buying the handset from Newegg, and the price will be brought down to $174.99.


Is this a good deal? You can always take a look at our full honor 5X review to see how well it did. Spoiler: it got an 8/10 rating, which is pretty good for a phone that costs only a couple Benjamins.

We had very little to complain about. The software, camera and sound quality were our biggest gripes. Aside from that, the build quality is solid, as is battery life and that responsive fingerprint reader. In terms of performance, it did well considering the specs and price point.

The honor 5X packs a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage (with microSD support), a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front shooter and a 3000 mAh battery. Not too shabby.

Interested? Just head over to Newegg and use coupon code “MBL160322A” to get your $25 off. It’s not that huge of a discount, but keep in mind this is a relatively new handset that already costs very little. And it may be worth it if you are looking for a good phone that won’t break the bank. Who is signing up?
