Honor 5X has the USB OTG compatibility as per the information available on review sites. But the feature seems to be disabled by default.
You will need to activate the same from settings.

Yes, Honor 5X comes with USB OTG functionality but it not supported by default file explorer which a flaw in the UI of this smartphone.

You can download ES File Explorer which is also the best file explorer out for Android. It comes with many features such as Hidden Files, etc. and will solve your OTG cable issue as well.

Honor 5X officially does support the OTG cable. This can be confirmed from the specifications. However the OTG support by UI is limited. And this is indeed Android ROM issue. The custom ROM inside the honor limits the support. It may in future get fixed. And in the meantime you're forced to use alternate file explorer apps.

Read the specifications to confirm the OTG support:

Yes, going through the specifications and officials Honor 5X supports OTG but there are some issues regarding this. To counter this, you can use OTG file manager apps in play store and with the use of them, you can connect your OTG.
