Honor presented some pronounced smartphones in the year 2018 and tackled brilliantly the likes of Oppo and Xiaomi smartphones globally. From budget to affordable flagships, Honor displayed its skills by offering one of the best smartphones in every segment.
Recently the company launched Honor 10 lite, a mid-range mobile phone, in Pakistan. Its predecessor Honor 9 lite introduced quad cameras very first time in any mid-range smartphone while its elder sibling Honor 10 is admired due to its flagship performance.
We got our hands on Honor 10 Lite, and here we are presenting the unboxing and first impressions of the device.
What Comes Out of the Box?
Honor 10 lite comes with all the usual accessories which we see along most of the Chinese phones. You have got a power charger, power cable, and a handsfree. A quality silicone case is also provided in the box with a sim ejector tool and some manuals.
Design and Display
The company did an excellent job with Honor 8X, and now they have impressed us more with the design language of Honor 10 lite.
It adorns a plastic body which is polished to give you a premium look.
The premium glittering body comes at a cost. Honor 10 lite catches a lot of smudges and fingerprints, so you need to put the silicon cover on your device so that it doesn’t look dirty.
It has a 6.21-inch display which features a dew drop notch, which we have seen in the flagships Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 20X. Its the first time that any honor device has come up with such a minimalistic notch.
Honor 10 lite has a stupendous screen to body ratio of 91% as per the company’s claim. Again, there are very few devices who supports such a ratio which surely enhances the media consumption experience.
Honor 10 lite inevitably grabs the attention and is one of those devices that are spectacular and premium to hold.
Performance and Battery
Honor 10 lite has a 3,400 mAh of battery power which seems less if we compared it to the likes of Huawei Y9 2019 and Vivo Y95. However, we have learned from our real-life tests that having the less mAhs’not necessarily means that it will underperform. Wait for the full review, to get a final verdict regarding the battery capabilities.
Honor 10 lite has an attractive spec sheet. It runs on Android pie with EMUI 9. As far as the performance is concerned, the device has got a Kirin 710 octa-core CPU with 3GB of RAM and 64 of internal storage. Honor 10 lite is not showing any lags in my initial usage, however, wait for the in-depth testing of the device.
Although the camera was never a selling point of honor phones, the company has improved a lot in its camera section of smartphones. We have a lot of hopes with Honor 10 lite which packs a dual camera unit of 13MP + 2MP lenses at the rear. The front camera has got a mammoth 24MP Sony IMX 576 sensor which will undoubtedly produce some extraordinary results.
AI feature is given in both the cameras. Honor 10 lite can automatically customize according to the scene we are shooting. Let’s say if you are clicking a landscape, it can alter its setting and can give you better results. Wait for camera results in our upcoming review of the device.
Honor 10 lite has a legacy. No doubt the device looks stunning and is very comfortable to hold. It’s a kind of smartphone which enhances your style statement. Although the specs sheet of the phone tell us that it is here to impress, wait for our final review and then take an informed decision.
