Huawei Honor 9 Lite First Impressions Review: Seems Good For The Price

5 months ago admin Comments Off on Huawei Honor 9 Lite First Impressions Review: Seems Good For The Price
The Honor 9 Lite is the latest smartphone from Huawei aiming to gain traction in the budget segment. Given the intense competition in the price range of Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000, smartphone brands have opted for “more the better for less money” strategy for quite some time. And the brand Honor is simply going the ‘Xiaomi-way’ to offer a spec-loaded phone for a competitive price. The only exception here is that the design of the Honor 9 Lite is way better than what other competitors are offering.

The device will be available in two variants, 3GB RAM/ 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage for Rs 10,999 and Rs 14,999 respectively. After spending some time with the Honor 9 Lite, here are our initial impressions.

What’s with the look?

The Honor 9 Lite looks unique and will remind you of the older flagship Honor 8. For the price of Rs 10,999, the Honor 9 Lite is great looking smartphone. It’s an all-glass smartphone and looks ways more shinny than any other handset. So, if you don’t like a phone which is too shiny and reflective then the Honor 9 Lite might not be the phone for you. This is because the rear of the phone is literally a mirror. However, the front of the smartphone looks good with the almost bezel-less design. Being an all-glass device, it attracts a lot of fingerprints and you will have to be a bit careful as it is slippery. Overall, it is a well-built smartphone and feels good in the hands as well.

It features a 5.65-inch Full HD+ FullView display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 2160×1080 pixel resolution. It is powered by Honor’s own HiSilicon Kirin 659 octa-core SoC, with four cores clocked at 2.36 GHz and four at 1.7GHz. It runs Honor’s own UI – EMUI 8.0 based on Android Oreo 8.0.
