2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • Flagship-grade design with a beautiful metal unibody
  • Very good fingerprint scanner
  • The 2160p videos are equally good as the still images from the main camera - fluid frame-rate, great detail, nice contrast, colors and dynamic range
  • Beautiful, large, sharp display, with excellent contrast levels
  • eUI on top of Android is a nice, clutter-free, and butter-smooth experience, and has welcome customization options
  • Top-end performance backed by latest, top-end chipset
  • Excellent video player with seamless 4K playback
  • The Le Max 2 camera gets most things right with plenty of detail, contrast, and dynamic range and good HDR and Panorama modes as well
  • Very good loudspeaker
  • Free bundled 1 year LeEco content subscription is a pretty nice value-add
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • You will need to use CDLA compliant USB-C headphones to actually derive the benefit of the lossless audio technology (instead of using standard jack headphones with the bundled USB-C to 3.5mm jack adapter)
  • Battery life is decent, but could have been better
  • You will not be able to charge the phone at the same time as listening to music, which could be an inconvenience
  • Heavy and a bit cumbersome
  • No NFC support
