Honor 10 Lite Smartphone Review

Mike Wobker, 👁 Daniel Schmidt, T. Hinum (translated by Mark Riege), 02/11/2019

Two are better than one. The Honor 10 Lite looks almost exactly like the Huawei P Smart 2019. There are hardly any differences in the specifications either, and even the price is the same. We clarify in our review whether the only improvement users of the Honor 10 Lite can really expect is a better selfie camera.

Honor 10 Lite

Every year, Huawei presents the corresponding counterpart from its Honor sub-brand to its own smartphones. The Huawei P Smart (2019) also receives this treatment, which is not only reflected in the almost identical exterior of the Honor 10 Lite, but also in the almost identical hardware equipment. At first glance, only the selfie camera is better in the 10 Lite than in its direct competitor.

For smooth system operation, Honor has used a HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC with an integrated ARM Mali G51-MP4 graphics unit, 3 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal eMMC flash storage in the 10 Lite. At a price of about 250 Euros (~$283), the Honor 10 Lite is at the same level as the Huawei P Smart (2019) and represents a solid offering in the class of mid-range smartphones.

The competitors not only include in-house smartphones, but also models from other manufacturers. To provide a good overview, we therefore not only select the Huawei P Smart (2019) but also the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018, Xiaomi's Mi 8 Lite, the Umidigi Z2 Pro, and Nokia's 5.1 Plus for our comparison.

Case - A smartphone with a bezel-less display

The case of the Honor 10 Lite is made from acrylic glass and has a metal frame. The workmanship is very high-quality, and the transitions between the materials are hardly noticeable. While all the physical buttons sit tightly in their frames on the right side of the case, all the connections as well as the speaker are on the bottom of the Android smartphone. The fingerprint sensor on the back can be easily reached. Due to its slim bezels and its small dewdrop notch, the front offers a good display-to-surface ratio of more than 90%. Buyers have the choice between Sky Blue, black, and Sapphire Blue colors.

While compared to other smartphones of its class the Honor 10 Lite has a similar size at 6.21-inches, it is not as wide as the competing devices we selected. In addition, with a weight of 162 grams, it places in the lower mid-range of our comparison field.

Equipment - DualSIM smartphone from Honor

The Honor 10 Lite offers a HiSilicon Kirin 710, an integrated ARM Mali-G51 MP4 graphics unit, 3 GB of working memory, and 64 GB of eMMC flash storage to the users. This equipment is comparable to that of other mid-range devices and identical to that of the Huawei P Smart (2019). The internal storage can be expanded via a microSD card, but you will then lose the dualSIM functionality. Both nanoSIM slots support LTE and offer functions such as VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling.

For charging and data transfer, there is a microUSB connection at the bottom of the Honor smartphone. While this is only connected internally via the USB-2.0 standard, it still offers OTG functionality. You can also connect headphones or external speakers to the Android smartphone via a 3.5 mm audio port.

Software - Android Pie and EMUI 9

The Honor 10 Lite offers users a modern Android Pie version 9.0 system with security patches on the level of November 1, 2018. At the time of testing, there was already an update with more current security patches. Huawei's EMUI 9 is used as the user interface, offering a neat arrangement to experienced Android users as well as newcomers. Besides a few apps by the manufacturer, the adjustments are mainly limited to the Settings menu, which has a different structure than pure Android. However, the sorting arrangement is still clear, and important functions can be found quickly.

Honor holds back in terms of installation of third-party apps, and we can only find Facebook, Amazon, and eBay, which can all be uninstalled quickly and without any complications. The AppGallery we already know from Huawei smartphones is also available on the 10 Lite, offering numerous app suggestions to expand the functionality with games, tools, and more. Video-streaming is not available in HD resolution, since the DRM certification is limited to L3.

If you install a microSD card, you can only use it for storage of your own data. You cannot use it to move apps or format it as internal storage - these functions are not available.

Communication and GPS - Slow WLAN in the Honor 10 Lite

You can see the first differences to the Huawei P Smart (2019) in the connectivity. Only two bands each are available for mobile connections to the GSM and UMTS networks. On the other hand, LTE communication is supported in the common bands 1, 3, 7, 8, and 20 with Category 12, allowing download rates of up to 600 Mb/s and upload speeds of up to 100 Mb/s. While at close range, NFC and Bluetooth 4.2 are available to users, they have to make do without fast WLAN in the ac standard, since the Honor 10 Lite only offers the slower 802.11b, g, and n standards here.

In our WLAN test, the results of the Honor smartphone turn out correspondingly low. At about 49 Mb/s while receiving and only little more than 41 Mb/s when sending data, the 10 Lite has to be content with the last place in our comparison field.

GPS Test outdoors

Using the GPS Test app, we evaluate the ability of the Honor 10 Lite to locate itself. Outdoors, locating is possible with an accuracy of up to five meters. However, indoors it is not possible to maintain a satellite connection.

During our mandatory bike tour, we compare the GPS in the Honor 10 Lite with our Garmin Edge 500 reference device. During straight runs, the recorded path is frequently beside the actual path, and often there are also inaccuracies in curves. While the differences to our reference device are not particularly large, the Honor 10 Lite is more suited for simple navigation tasks.

Telephone Functions and Voice Quality - Honor smartphone with good voice quality

The manufacturer's own app is available to users to make phone calls. This offers access to a dial pad and a second tab offers contacts and favorites. During the conversation, the Android smartphone convinces with a clear sound and good voice quality. Both conversation partners are easy to understand and the environment noises are filtered out reliably. The volume is quite high, enabling communication even in noisy surroundings. 

Cameras - Selfie smartphone with a 24 MP front camera

Picture taken with the front camera
Picture taken with the front camera

The Honor 10 Lite offers users a dual camera with 13+2 MP (f/1.8 + f/2.4 aperture) on the back and a 24 MP front camera with an f/2.0 aperture in front. The latter allows you to take portrait pictures with a good quality. Colors are reproduced accurately and fine structures can be recognized. While in close-ups, the transitions between very fine objects become slightly fuzzy, this effect is negligible. The camera app of the Honor 10 Lite offers numerous AI functions that besides beauty effects can also simulate various lighting modes. In addition, the settings menu also offers timer functions, gesture and voice control, a Bokeh mode, and smile recognition. A professional mode is limited to the main camera.

Panorama pictures taken with the main camera will profit from good light conditions. Our test image was taken during a very cloudy day, causing the picture to look too dark, overall. Details and colors are often lost in image areas that are too dark, and brightness differences are not very well balanced. At close-up range, the images turn out significantly better, shining with details and better illumination. Colors are also reproduced well, but the transitions between objects appear slightly fuzzy when you zoom in. While in low-light conditions, the camera of the Honor 10 Lite is able to fully illuminate the selected object, you can hardly see any fine structures, colors, and details anymore. But at least the whole image does not disappear completely in the darkness, only the corners are not illuminated anymore.

In addition to the AI functions we listed above, the app offers a mode with a freely selectable aperture, a night-mode with adjusted shutter speed and ISO values, as well as a professional mode for the main camera. The latter allows you to manually adjust the white balance, shutter speed, focus, surrounding light, and more. In addition, you can select time-lapse, HDR recording, and various color modes.

The video function allows you to make recordings with a similar quality as our test pictures. In 720p mode, you can apply some beauty effects, which are not available anymore in higher resolutions. These are 1080p at 30 FPS, 1080p at 60 FPS, and a 1080p mode that uses the whole display width in the 18.7:9 format. An image stabilizer prevents slight blurriness, but it cannot be turned off.

Using the ColorChecker Passport, we evaluate the color reproduction of the Honor 10 Lite camera. This shows that green, blue, gray, and brown tones are reproduced slightly too bright, and the remaining colors are reproduced rather too dark.

Under controlled light conditions, the camera of the Android smartphone is able to reproduce our test chart well. Colors, as well as fine structures and details are clearly visible. However, there is some clearly visible paleness in the lower corners.

Accessories and warranty - Protective case included

The box of the Honor 10 Lite includes a USB charger with the corresponding microUSB cable, a silicone protective case, and a SIM tool to open the nanoSIM/microSD card slot. In addition, you can purchase a flip cover for the 10 Lite and general smartphone accessories such as power banks, headsets, and more in the online-shop of the manufacturer.

Honor offers a warranty of 24 months for the 10 Lite. Please see our Guarantees, Return policies and Warranties article for country-specific information.

Input Devices and Operation - SwiftKey as the standard keyboard

The SwiftKey keyboard app is available to users for text input. This allows you to input text quickly and without any complications. In addition, you can adjust the appearance through layouts and also adjust the size and arrangement of the keyboard to your individual tastes. The touchscreen transfers any touch directly to the system, but it offers slightly too much resistance to the fingertips during drag-and-drop movements. The position sensor also responds reliably and adjusts the image to the phone orientation with only a slight delay.

To unlock the Honor 10 Lite, you can use the fingerprint sensor on the back, which recognized stored fingerprints very reliably in our test.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9331 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Our measurements attest the Honor 10 Lite with a below-average contrast ratio of 805:1 and an elevated black value of 0.58 cd/m². This prevents colors from appearing clearly separated and adds a visible gray tint to black tones.

By default, the "Vivid, Standard" color profile is activated in the Honor 10 Lite. This offers cool color tones and is marked by a high blue color content and reduced red color content. The "Normal, Standard" color profile will remedy those deviations and offers a more balanced color display. However, users can also adjust the colors to their tastes using a freely adjustable color scale.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
27.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 18.8 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 57 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
49.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise
↘ 27.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 82 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.5 ms).

The brightness of the Honor 10 Lite is sufficient to be able to also see the display content outdoors. However, you should look for a shady place, otherwise reflections of the surrounding objects will hinder your view. Indoors, artificial light sources will also create annoying reflections.

The viewing angles of the IPS panel of the Honor 10 Lite are very stable. You can see content from almost any angle without any distortions or color deviations. As long as there are no reflections of the surrounding objects hindering the view, the Honor 10 Lite can also be used with unusual viewing angles.

Performance - The Honor 10 Lite with a good performance

The HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC and the integrated ARM Mali-G51 MP4 graphics unit in the Honor 10 Lite ensure a smooth system operation. They are supported by 3 GB of working memory and 64 GB of eMMC flash storage. With this, the Android smartphone offers typical mid-range equipment that is well-suited for most of the daily apps and games at medium graphics settings.

The results in the benchmark tests show that the Honor 10 Lite ranges on a level with the Huawei P Smart (2019), which is equipped with identical hardware. However, compared to the rest of the competitors, the values turn out mixed, and overall the Android smartphone places sometimes above and sometimes below the average of the field of our selected comparison devices. Particularly in graphics-heavy tests, the result is often slightly lower than in comparable devices.

The storage performance of the internal eMMC flash storage is at the level of the speeds of comparable devices. Of the 64 GB total storage about 55 GB remains available to the user for storage of apps, their own data, photos, and videos. According to the manufacturer, this can be expanded by up to 512 GB via the internal microSD card reader. However, apps cannot be moved onto the storage card, and it cannot be formatted as internal storage.

Using our Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 reference storage card, the internal card reader achieves read and write rates that are also at the same level as our selected competitors.

Games - Android smartphone for mid-range gaming

In the Honor 10 Lite, an ARM Mali G51-MP4 graphics unit handles the display of image content. While this allows you to play most games smoothly, in very-demanding games you have to select slightly lower graphics settings. In our test, Arena of Valor and Asphalt 9: Legends also ran very smoothly at high graphics settings. The touchscreen transferred input reliably to the corresponding game, and the position sensor also translated our movements to the screen directly.

During our test, the surfaces of the Honor 10 Lite warm up to about 32 °C (90 °F) during idle and up to 34 °C (93 °F) under load. This means that the device merely feels warm but never hot. During the demanding GFXBench ES 2.0 and Manhattan 3.1 tests, it also shows that the performance of the Honor 10 Lite is impacted in the long run. During both runs, the performance dropped by about 15%, so you have to expect some performance limitations during operation.

Speaker

Speaker characteristic
Speaker characteristic

The speaker in the Honor 10 Lite can get relatively loud and offers a sound spectrum that emphasizes the high mids. This causes media content to sound slightly imbalanced, since lower tones are practically not there. While this sound image is suited for the reproduction of voice, you should use headphones or external speakers for the enjoyment of music or video content. Besides using Bluetooth 4.2 to connect these devices, you can also use a 3.5 mm audio port, which accepts the corresponding plugs tightly and does not impact the audio quality.

Battery Life - Mediocre battery life in the Honor 10 Lite

Power Consumption

Our measurements attest the Honor 10 Lite with a power consumption of at least 1 watt during idle and a maximum of 7.7 watts under load. This makes the Android smartphone the device with the highest power consumption out of our test field.

The included 10-watt charger is sufficiently sized to be able to reliably supply the necessary power to the Honor 10 Lite even under load.

Battery Life

The Honor 10 Lite is able to last slightly more than 8 hours in our realistic WLAN test before it has to be reconnected to the charger. With this, the battery life is slightly lower than those of comparable devices, which reach a longer runtime, even with a lower battery capacity in some cases.

The included charger offers no Quick-Charge function and needs about 3 h 20 m to completely recharge the 3400 mAh battery.

Testing the Honor 10 Lite. Test unit provided by notebooksbilliger.de
Testing the Honor 10 Lite. Test unit provided by notebooksbilliger.de

In our test, the Honor 10 Lite presents itself as a well-performing mid-range smartphone with a good selfie camera. The system performance is more than sufficient for most everyday applications and offers sufficient reserves for current games. The storage corresponds to the usual equipment in this price range, and the rest of the features of the Honor smartphone are also competitive. However, interested buyers should also be aware of the low frequency band coverage for GSM and UMTS.

For about 250 Euros (~$283), the Honor 10 Lite offers a good selfie camera and a solid system performance at mid-range level. However, the slow WLAN is unnecessary.

Interested buyers might perhaps ask about the differences to the Huawei P Smart (2019). This offers almost identical hardware equipment and has faster WLAN, which is also the biggest compromise between the two smartphones. Users for whom a good front camera is more important should choose the Honor 10 Lite, and users who prefer a fast WLAN connection will be happier with the Huawei P Smart (2019). Those who cannot decide might like one of the competing devices more.
