The Honor 10 Lite is finally out in the Philippine market. This new device from Honor aims to target consumers who like taking selfie with its 24MP AI-powered front camera. It also features a new gradient color and some scaled-down specifications from the flagship Honor 10.
Is the Honor 10 Lite the one you are looking for? Let’s find out!
In terms of physical appearance, the Honor 10 Lite got some looks here. It is actually one of the most affordable smartphones under 11K with this kind of design.
The all plastic body doesn’t make the Honor 10 Lite look cheap at all. It has this beautiful gradient color with a glossy finish. The one that we have is the Sky Blue color but there’s also a Midnight Black version if you want a more classy look.
The volume rockers and the power button are located on the right side. On the bottom part is where you’ll find the speaker grill, micro USB port, a microphone, and the 3.5 audio jack port. The SIM and microSD card tray was located on the top part along with the secondary microphone.
The Honor 10 Lite has a 6.21-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. We noticed that the display is thinner that most smartphones with this screen size which then results to better hand grip specially when using the device with your one hand.
When it comes to viewing experience, the Honor 10 Lite’s display produces vivid colors, good viewing angles, and acceptable brightness level for outdoor use.
This device might have a “lite” on its name but its performance and gaming capabilities are better than what we expected. Multi-tasking is on breeze thanks to its 3GB of RAM and HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor which was also found on the Honor 8X, Huawei Nova 3i, and Huawei Y9 2019.
It can also run some popular games like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, PUBG, Asphalt 9, and Ragnarok M. Device heating is still present
*We do not have benchmark samples as of this time because the unit that we have is an engineering sample only.
The Honor 10 Lite was equipped with a 13MP + 2MP rear cameras. The image quality are pretty decent and becomes vivid when the AI was turned ON. Thankfully, you can still disable the AI after taking the shot if you prefer a more natural-looking photo.
The more exciting part about this smartphone is the huge 24MP selfie camera. It is actually one of the biggest front camera pixel that you can find on its price tag. The selfie camera was also AI-powered and there are a lot of creative things that you can play with it.
Here are some of our sample photo:
The Honor 10 Lite carries the same 3,400mAh battery capacity with its bigger sibling – the Honor 10. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have wireless charging support. As for the battery efficiency, it actually performs pretty well. We are able to use the device the whole day on an average usage with few bars left during the night.
The Honor 10 Lite offers a lot of good features for the price of under 11K. It has a beautiful design, immersive display, powerful Kirin 710 processor, and a whopping 25MP AI-powered selfie camera. It’s not just a lite version of the Honor 10 but also a good alternative for the Honor 8X and Huawei Nova 3i if you are on a tight budget.
