Honor 9 Lite hands-on review

 

The Honor 9 Lite has four lenses, a glass body, and tiny bezels, all for less money than you'd expect.

Low price ; Strong front and rear cameras ; Android 8.0 ; Small bezels around the screen ; Attractive design

Software performance doesn’t shine ; MicroUSB charger

Honor 9 Lite: Hands-on and first impressions

 

While the highlight of the Honor 9 Lite is that it packs quad cameras, the refined glass design at the back is the first thing you'll notice about the phone.

Honor 9 Lite hands-on review: complete package, competitive price

 

The Honor 9 Lite is a new smartphone with a combination of affordable price, stylish design and just packed with features to catch the eye of young customers. You'd be hard-pressed to find not only one, but two dual cameras available on a budget...

For the price, the Honor 9 Lite offers a convincing overall package, at least at first glance. The smartphone is not the fastest, but it has a chic design, comes with the latest Android version and two dual cameras. On the downside are the old...

Honor 9 Lite

 

Honor 9 Lite review. The Honor 9's stripped-back sibling could be a contender for the best budget smartphone of 2018?

All-screen design for less than £200 ; Crisp 5.65-inch 18:9 display ; Camera reasonably proficient

EMUI doesn’t show Android at its best ; Glass back questionable design decision ; Second camera only partially successful ; No NFC

The Honor 9 Lite’s bezel-light design and twin-lens camera tricks are eye catching, but it’s perhaps too quirky to fully take on the Motorola G-series at the top of the table.

Honor 9 Lite review

 

Could this be the smartphone steal of 2018?

Tempting price ; Expensive-looking design ; 18:9 aspect screen

Performance compromise with high-end games ; Speaker can sound harsh

Cutting-edge design at a price that won’t shred your wallet. Even with its average gaming performance, this is an excellent budget phone

Honor 9 Lite review: Setting a high bar for budget phones

 

In many ways the Honor 9 Lite sets a new standard for sub-£200 phones. Its striking looks are well beyond its asking price, delivering a degree of

Superb design that looks well beyond its asking price ; High-res 18:9 screen ; Well-placed fingerprint scanner for rapid login ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; Quad camera fun

Light on battery life ; Some low-end graphics in gaming ; Touchscreen sometimes lacks responsiveness ; Micro-USB so no fast-charging ; So-so camera performance

In many ways the Honor 9 Lite sets a new standard for sub-£200 phones. Its striking looks are well beyond its asking price, delivering a degree of flagship at an affordable price. That 18:9 screen, too, is of the utmost quality and makes for great...

Honor 9 Lite review

 

A stylish phone at a great price

Premium design ; Excellent 18:9 screen ; Latest version of Android

EMUI is heavy ; Glass back is a fingerprint magnet ; Poor low-light camera performance

Honor has become accomplished at churning out excellent-value smartphones, and the Honor 9 Lite is no exception. It's not perfect, but with a decent quad-camera setup and a very handsome design, it delivers exceptional bang for your buck.
