Comment

Model: Budget devices are taking over the market. Since we reached a technical point where every device started to look similar, I guess this was inevitable. What would you focus on if every 8 devices out of 10 looks very similar in technical terms? One is haptics of how it looks and it feels and the other is price. Haptics is now the main norm for flagships if you ask me. Price is important for budget devices.

The Honor 10i is in the latter. In some markets you can find it as Honor 20 Lite as well. It was just recently launched in the last months, so it is fairly new. Compared to other budget devices on the market, what Honor does differently than its competitors is to push what can be done as much as they can. For instance, if you don’t have a sleek case or in this case a plastic case to be honest and don’t provide a USB C port still, what would be your selling point? The Kirin 710 SoC is not the best in class. 4 GB of RAM or other internal things are not the selling points here. What helps the Honor 10i stand out is its triple camera set up. In this price range it is quite hard to find something that works kinda well.

Supported with software triple camera setup helps you take decent shots. Also with a decent battery, you can use your phone for almost a whole day. It comes with Android 9, so we can say you are up to date.

Coming back to the selling point: triple camera setup. This is literally “the” selling point I see. Besides that, it is just as good as other smartphones. So as a customer, what you need to do is decide on your requirements. What matters most to you? Is it camera, case, or battery? If your choice is cameras and you are low on budget, you should definitely check out the Honor 10i.

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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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

Kirin 710: 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.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Honor:

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).


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
