    I'm going to buy a new phone but I'm undecided on which one to choose.
    In your opinion is better the Moto G4 or the Huawei Honor 5x?
    Please can you tell me why you think so and the pluses for both phones?
    Thanks in advance

    I would get the honor 5x. It looks better, and has great custom rom support. no major differeces between the two.

    I own 2 Lenovo Moto G4 (Black and the other White)
    To be honest, if i would buy again int that price segment, i would go for the Huawei Honor X5

    Moto 4G lacks compass (a feature is used to use once and awhile, (i missed this in my lookup before i bought it)
    When calling sometimes (not always), the screen goes fully black, only way to get screen back is hold the power button a few seconds

    I don't know how it is on the Honor x5, but on the Moto G4 you can use Dual Sims (both Micro) + MicroSD
    On my other older phones with Dual Sim, it was OR Dual sims and no SD, OR 1 sim + SD
    I love the almost fully stock android on my G4's (No bloatware)

    Anyway, the Moto G4 is a great phone for a great price, but since Lenove took over, lacks a few things
    The Honor X5 is on paper better then the Moto G4 for almost the same price, but i don't like there GUI over Android (but thats easy to solve (other launcher/custom rom)

    Side note to op:
    The honor 5x has a lot of great custom roms, and even official cyanogenmod builds!

    i have the honor 5x its great i got it on sale for $120 though i havent seen it compared to other phones
    i really do not like the moto g4 it feels kinda cheap and the moto experience is just not enjoyable
