Today’s article provides the review of the latest mobile that is called Honor 9 Lite. It has many advantages and disadvantages which will be discussed in this article very soon. After ordering the phone from Flipkart and using it, I can say it is a good phone, but there are some cons. Better mobiles like Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi 5, Mi A1 etc are available in the same price range which Honor 9 Lite falls into. First, I’ll talk about its specifications and then will come to the real pros and Cons that I’ve I seen.
In Honor 9 lite, like other mobiles, it has 18:9 screen ratio and with 5.65-inches Full HD Display and 2.5D curved class which looks so nice. This smartphone by Honor is excellent in looks which is the key reason for the high demand in the market. This phone provides four cameras, two in the front and two in the rear area. This smartphone’s body is made of glass and provides on-screen buttons which could be provided in the space that’s available in the bottom area of the front part of the mobile which helps the usage of the entire screen. It is ok to be in this way, but the suggestions of the customers say that.
Coming to the camera, Huawei Honor 9 Lite boasts of dual front camera of 13 + 2 megapixel and 13 + 2 -megapixel dual rear Camera. It also supports Face Detection and high dynamic range(HDR) imaging. If I talk about the back camera, it is good according to me. I rate it 6 out of 10, and the camera of MI A1 is better than the camera of HONOR 9 LITE. This famous dual camera feature provides “Portrait Mode” where you can focus on something/ object, blurs the background, which looks great. Another feature of the camera is you can click a clear picture of a moving object.
Now, coming to the hardware part, as we all know that the equipment of honor is owned by Huawei. This mobile uses the octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 with GUI of Mali-T830 MP2. If I talk about the memory, it comes in two variants. First one is a variant that provides 4GB RAM with 32GB internal storage, and the other one provides the same 4GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage. Honor 9 lite runs on Android Oreo 8.0 with EMUI 8.0 with great features. The Price of the 32GB variant is Rs. 10,999 and the 64GB variant costs Rs. 14,999. This phone comes in different colors like Glacier Grey, Midnight Black, and Sapphire Blue. The Glacier Grey and Midnight Black are the ones which I like the most.
Some Issues what I faced-
When considering the price and features of the Honor 9 lite, it is good, but we can find many other smartphones better than this in the same price range. Xiaomi, which is a big brand today is the biggest competitor for Honor. This phone has some issues which are discussed below:
- 4K videos are playing slow, for this, I use a very famous media player like MX player pro, VLC etc.
- I already talked about the camera which is that good as MI A1’s camera is.
- Sometimes some lagging problem is being faced but in very rare case. Otherwise, it’s very good.
But the thing is that this Honor mobile doesn’t serve the basic need of user i.e. Camera well. Yes, I told you about the Mi A1’s camera, if you compare with the other smartphones’ cameras it is really good. The whole body of this phone is glass, so be careful users!
The best thing about the Honor 9 Lite is the battery life, it really has a great battery life. I work whole day with data on and do some work. The design is very good. The design is excellent when compared with all the smartphones available in the same price range. The fingerprint is fast, and face detection feature is also available, it works well, but not in low light. The sound quality is loud and excellent. The colour combination of this phone is unique and excellent. When the first sale was on Flipkart, it sold out in a very less time span of 10 seconds and just like that almost 5-6 sale periods of the phone were successful.
