Reviews for the Honor 10X Lite

75.6% Honor 10X Lite Smartphone Review - Modern cell phone with problems | Notebookcheck
The Honor 10X Lite wants to stir up the lower middle class and brings along a large battery and a lot of memory. The more modern case pleases, but apart from the missing Google services, there are other weak points that we found in the test.
85% Honor 10X Lite review: A great value package despite its limitations
Source: Neowin English
The Honor 10X Lite isn't a terribly exciting phone, and that's pretty obvious just looking at its price tag, but it's nothing to scoff at, either. It offers pretty great performance and battery life for its price point, plus it has a decent camera, display, and sound, in addition to some niceties like 22.5W fast charging. It's an all-around enjoyable experience that doesn't carry a lot of compromises you get on other phones in this price range.

It does, however, miss the mark in key areas. The camera turns out average or below average results, the chipset ranks at the bottom in the phone's price bracket, the display is neither impressively bright nor has a high refresh rate. None of these is a dealbreaker, but competitors outclass the Honor in some or all of these areas without breaking the bank.

If we could judge a phone only on its hardware, then the Honor 10X Lite would probably be the best handset under £200. The reality though is for most users, enrolling on Huawei’s Mobile Services is likely to be a bridge too far unless Honor and Huawei comes with a killer app or feature.

Source: Neowin English
We go hands-on with the brand-new Honor 10X Lite, featuring a Kirin 710A chipset, 5,000mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. It has a quad camera setup on the back, a fingerprint sensor on the power button, and a punch-hole display cutout for the front-facing camera.

ARM Mali-G51 MP4: Integrated mid range graphics card with 4 clusters. Beware the results in the Mate 20 Lite, that detects benchmarks and boosts the performance.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Kirin 710A: ARM based octa-core SoC containing four Cortex-A73 cores for performance tasks (up to 2.2 GHz) and four Cortex-A53 cores (up to 1.7 GHz) to save power. Furthermore, the SoC integrates an LTE radio (600 MBps down) and a ARM Mali-G51MP4 GPU. The SoC is manufactured at TSMC in 12nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).

76.43%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
