Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 9 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • The phone is a stunner - sports a beautiful, premium glass body design - arguably, in this price segment, this is the best-designed phone that money can buy

  • There is no camera bump at the rear of the device which makes the back of this device seamless and comfortable to hold

  • There is also a fingerprint sensor at the back that nicely integrates with the body shell of the phone

  • Good 5.2-inch display - is bright and offers great viewing angles as well

  • Huawei's EMUI is significantly improved from before, and works smoothly - it also has some useful add-ons like floating dock, motion control, and one-handed UI

  • Good, solid performance throughout - has more than enough firepower that you'll need for your daily usage, with no heating issues, or app crashes

  • There is also 4GB RAM on offer and the RAM management on the Honor 8 Lite is better than many of its competitors

  • Decent rear camera - the camera app is easy to use and does offer some great software add-ons like HDR, Document Scan, Panorama, Light Painting, Time-lapse, slow-mo, watermark and Audio Note

  • The front 8-megapixel camera is pretty good too

  • Pretty good battery life - lasts the day even with heavy use

  • Comes with an extended 15 month service warranty, with door pick-up and drop service

What we didn't

  • Comes with a standard micro USB for charging and data transfer, instead of the more modern USB-C protocol on some of it's competitors

  • Doesn't support fast charging, which is again present on some of its competitors
