Honor 6X GFXBench, 3DMark And Basemark X Gaming And Graphics Performance

Before moving to the battery life test, we put the Huawei Honor 6X through three graphics benchmarks. The first, GFXBench, is a suite of tests. We chose two tests that run offscreen to avoid issues with v-sync and unsupported display resolutions when comparing phone scores.

3D Graphics Benchmarks: GFXBench, 3DMark, Basemark X

GFXBench T Rex

GFXBench Manhattan

Even Huawei’s Honor 8 smartphone struggled in the graphics benchmarks, thanks at least in part to its Mali-T880 GPU. The lower-priced Honor 6X features a Mali-T830 and it brought up the rear in the GFXBench tests.



Basemark X Game Test

The Honor 6X again had difficulty putting up strong scores in the remaining two tests, though it pulled ahead of the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus in the Basemark X Game Test. The smartphone isn’t a strong gamer, but that’s par for the course with a budget-friendly device. We will note again as well that, in general everyday use, the Honor 6X "feels" plenty responsive, similar to the Moto G4 family of devices. Just set you expectations accordingly with respect to gaming.
