A good smartphone camera is hard to come by in the budget segment. Here, manufacturers usually try to offer the best processors, RAM and storage because specifications stand out. We've seen some smartphones that claim to be camera-focused, such as Xiaomi’s Redmi Y1 (Review), part of its Y series, which didn't turn out to be great when we reviewed it

Honor 9 Lite Summary

The 9 Lite features a compact form factor with a mirror-finish glass back, which looks really striking. The phone is also incredibly lightweight due to the plastic build. The 9 Lite has a FullView 5.65-inch IPS display, which produces punchy colours and good brightness levels. The bezels are also pretty slim. Powering the phone is an octa-core Kirin 659 SoC and you have two RAM and storage combinations to choose from. EMUI 8 is quite polished but isn't as snappy as stock Android or OnePlus' OxygenOS. Both 13-megapixel cameras have accompanying sensors for sensing depth. We found portrait mode to work a bit better on the front camera but overall image quality is pretty average. Battery life could be better as even with the 3000mAh battery, it's a bit tough to go beyond a full day.

  • Awesome gadget within Budget
    rajkar banik (Jun 29, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    this review is after using this gadget for 3 months. Performance :- No lagging between apps switching and gaming even in full screen mode thanks to 3 gb ram and super fast processor. does not get heated up while heavy use. Camera :- Superb in broad daylight and both in front and back but in low light not so satisfactory. Connectivity :- no problem in calls(quality is good and supports VOLTE), net(Superb speed in 4g) , wifi (enhansed option available) or even in Bluetooth device Look :- Absolutely stunning (But careful no gorilla glass and not scratch resistance) will give a premium look in hand. Storage is sufficient 32/64 gb as per your choise with 3/4 gb ram Final verdict for a budget device anyone can g o for it with trusted purchase partner.
