Huawei’s Honor sub-brand hits the U.S. this year with the arrival of the Honor 5X, a new, affordable handset that delivers capable smartphone hardware features like a 1080p display, a metal chassis and a 13-megapixel camera with LED flash. On the software side it’s still packing Android 5.1 Lollipop, but the Honor 5X has a lot to offer in other areas. The phone will launch Jan. 31 for $199.99 unlocked on Huawei’s hihonor.com as well Amazon.

Phil had quite a lot of good things to say in his hands-on with the Honor 5X, noting that the new phone brings a lot to the table and it just so happens to also not cost a whole lot of money. Pretty awesome!

Nexus Imprint still hasn’t learned anything from me

Google’s got some ‘splaining to do.

A particularly stupid move on my part over the weekend left the tip of my right index finger sliced open. Not enough to need a trip to the hospital, but enough that I’m reminded of its existence every time my finger drifts across a rough surface. And the cut is just enough to get in the way of unlocking my Nexus 6P the way I typically unlock it, which means I have to shift my finger just a bit to confirm the unlock and move on with the rest of my interaction. No big deal, there’s plenty of finger there for the sensor to grab and I’ve got other fingers stored if it becomes a problem.

Only it shouldn’t have been a problem at all, remember? My phone is supposed to be learning as I use it, and I don’t think that has been happening.
