Here is the review of the newly announced Honor 10 Lite priced at £199.99 available from HiHonor UK and at selected retailers.

Honor 10 lite is no exception but the 3D glare gradient design on the back, Running on Kirin 710 with its own GPU Turbo 2.0 is also sufficient to provide users with a smooth experience.

The Honor 10 Lite comes in three colours of Sky Blue, Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black. The back uses a high-precision 3D lithography. The Honor 10 Lite uses a 6.21-inch pearl screen, which accounts for 90% of the front panel. It has added Eye Protection Mode 2.0 to effectively filter blue light.

In the drop area, the Honor 10 Lite has a number of components and sensors. But what’s more interesting, is that the brand has managed to put a 24MP camera there. The chin uses COF packaging process, which is mainly seen in the flagship models. That’s why the chin is narrow enough.

This notch on this is known as U-Notch display which is first used by Essential Phone a year back.

At the bottom of the fuselage, there are speakers, a micro-USB interface, a microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Starting way back from Honor 8 this line is considered to be great among others. The Honor 10 Lite is the qualified successor of this series. Actually, it has a number of advantages that can’t be ignored.

With this good specs and design plus camera, this will be the first budget phone of 2019.

With battery life on the Honor 10 Lite is amazing that will keep you going for a whole working day and still have more all because of the 3400mAh. Good cameras on both front and back and with a read fingerprint sensor as well. It may be Lite in name but not Lite in features. With games like PUBG that can be played on the Honor 10 Lite with good framerates but sadly not Fortnite just yet maybe soon.

Verdict

Pros

  • Good camera with plenty of features
  • Competitive price
  • Solid performance and battery life

Cons

  • Still using micro USB in 2019
