        Huawei Honor 5X looks like a good device from what I see in the specs, but I don`t understand why this compeion with Lenovo K4 Note. Is true that Huawei Honor 5X has a good CPU, but also Lenovo. From a simple comparison I could see that Lenovo K4 Note has more battery power (3300mAh vs 3000mAh), faster CPU clock speed, more RAM memory, specs which are more important then it`s design. You can check my comparison here:
