1. Honor 8 Lite
Honor has recently launched the lite version its excellent Honor 8, the Honor 8 lite which is priced at Rs14899. The phone is completely glass and metal build which looks surprisingly beautiful for the price its offering it for. In India it comes with 4GB of RAM which makes it a very good competitor in this price segment.
The screen is comparatively small 5.2 inches which is perfect for one handed usage. Its a pleasure to hold the device and use with one hand. It feels premium and cold.
The handset comes with a 3000mAh battery but doesn’t support fast charging. The Honor 8 lite runs Android 7.0 Nougat with a promised update to Android 8.0 . It runs its own custom UI, EMUI 5.0 on top of Android 7.0.
It comes with a 12mp cam on the back and 8mp selfie cam which is good.
The Honor 8 Lite packs the same processor as its mid-range Honor 6X. The octa-core Kirin 655 processor from Huawei isn’t as powerful as one would look for a slightly premium priced smartphone like the Honor 8 Lite. You will not have any issue in any normal day-to-day tasks. The phone works smooth for usual multi-tasking, which means multiple apps running in the background won’t affect the performance.
Price :- Rs 14990
