2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 18+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Eye-catching, premium dual tone design
  • Good ergonomics and nice grip
  • Fast rear-mounted fingerprint sensor
  • Plasticky build
  • Attracts fingerprints
  • Face unlock is not the most accurate

Display

  • Large, colorful, bright, tall display, with a minimal, drew-drop notch

Software

  • EMUI is very customizable and feature-rich
  • The UI doesn't feel as responsive or fluid as it should be - the Kirin 710's CPU is more than capable chipset so it's probably down to not-that-great software optimization (that will hopefully get corrected with updates)
  • Some of the default settings for screen timeout, and other aggressive battery saving measures that kill apps in the background are overdone - and you might need to tweak these manually

Performance

  • Good overall performance backed by a Kirin 710 (similar to Snapdragon 660) - handles gaming and other heavy tasks with ease

Camera

  • Average cameras at the front and rear
  • The rear dual camera setup struggles to offer much in the way of detail or dynamic range - photos can also occasionally suffer from excessive processing that makes their colors look overly saturated
  • Average portrait mode
  • No video stabilization and no 4K video recording

Audio

  • The loudspeaker is loud indeed (although there is distortion at higher volumes)

Connectivity

  • Average bluetooth performance - you will experience the occasional dropouts
  • Uses the old Micro USB port instead of the modern USB-C

Battery

  • Good battery life - with a 3400mAh battery, the phone lasts the day even with heavy use
  • No fast charging support

Verdict

  • The Honor 10 Lite is a decent phone on its own, but will find it tough to compete in this price bracket - you want to instead look at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro (great all-rounder), Honor 8X (extra screen space, the better battery life, and the more consistent camera performance), Xiaomi Mi A2 (Android One programme, much better camera), and the Nokia 7 Plus (Android One programme, better camera, better battery)
