Honor 50 Lite review: Entry-level smartphone with thick 64 MP camera

Future-proof? With the 50 Lite, Honor offers a lower mid-range smartphone that operates in a highly competitive market. It aims to impress with 66-watt fast charging and a 64 MP quad-camera setup, but it also reveals a couple of weaknesses in the test.

The Honor 50 Lite is the first mid-range smartphone since the split from Huawei, nonetheless, it's still very similar to the latter's Nova 8i, but it comes with all Google services and is not subject to any of the restrictions imposed on Huawei by the trade war between China and the US.

The smartphone has a nominal price of just under 300 Euros (~$338) and is only available in Germany with 6 GB of RAM and a generous 128 GB of internal storage.

Case - Stylish colors for the Honor 50 Lite

The Honor 50 Lite is available in the resonant Midnight Black (black) and Deep Sea Blue (blue) colors. Thanks to the large central camera hump at the back, it doesn't wobble back and forth on flat surfaces.

The metal frame provides the Honor smartphone with a certain quality, and the clean workmanship is also impressive. The back is made of plastic, but it still looks high quality. Furthermore, the susceptibility to fingerprints is limited. There is no detailed specification for the display glass, which is additionally protected by a factory-applied film.

The card slot can accommodate two nano SIM cards. There's no special protection against dust or water.

Connectivity - Honor smartphone without a microSD slot

The Honor 50 Lite offers a decent connectivity package. The USB 2.0 port supports OTG. In addition, an audio jack (3.5 mm) is available, and a connected headset serves as an antenna for the FM receiver.

The only thing that's missing is the option to expand storage via a microSD card.

Software - Android 11 with Magic UI 4.2

The Honor 50 Lite ships with Android 11 and the proprietary Magic UI 4.2. At the time of testing, the security patches are from October 1, 2021 and no longer up to date. Honor hasn't revealed the update frequency yet, nor whether there will be an update to Android 12. But since the smartphone doesn't appear on the company's roadmap for this, the situation looks rather bleak.

Honor preinstalls a few third-party apps, but all of them can be uninstalled. However, there is no DRM certification, which means that accordingly protected content can only be consumed in SD quality.

Communication and GNSS - Good positioning and stable Wi-Fi

The Honor 50 Lite can use Wi-Fi 5 (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac) and supports both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz networks. The transfer rates using our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 test router are constant in both directions, but not particularly high.

The Honor smartphone can access mobile Internet via LTE at best - 5G is not supported. The range of frequency bands covered includes the most important bands in Germany, but not much more.

The satellite fix is quite fast outdoors, but a while is needed for our position to be determined more precisely. It's possible to determine the location indoors, but it's not very precise.

The Honor 50 Lite had to face a comparison with the Garmin Venu 2 during a short test drive. Although the smartwatch is even more accurate, the smartphone still offers decent positioning.

Telephone and call quality

The call quality of the Honor 50 Lite is quite good when held to the ear, but as soon as background noise is added, the user's voice becomes a bit constricted and nasal. In general, the ambient noise suppression is rather mediocre. The speaker reverberates slightly, but it has a decent microphone range.

The smartphone has room for two nano SIM cards and supports both VoLTE and WLAN calls.

The Honor 50 Lite's quad-camera setup should be adjusted

Selfie taken with the Honor 50 Lite
Selfie taken with the Honor 50 Lite

The front-facing camera of the Honor 50 Lite is no cause for enthusiasm. Pictures look pale and lack dynamic range. Sharpness and detail accuracy are also rather mediocre.

Despite its 64 megapixels, the main camera isn't quite satisfactory. Color reproduction is slightly reddish, dynamic range is lacking, and fine details are captured in a slightly washed-out manner. An 8x digital magnification is possible when zooming, but again, Honor hardly takes advantage of the sensor's high resolution here. The setup is completed by an ultra wide-angle lens, where the distortion correction should be deactivated, since actual straight edges tend to look curved otherwise. The macro lens as well as the depth lens are nice extras on the spec sheet, but unfortunately, they're nothing more.

Videos can only be recorded in Full HD resolution and at 30 frames per second on both sides.

Accessories and warranty - Powerful charger included in the box

The Honor 50 Lite comes with a 24-month warranty that can't be extended. In addition to the smartphone, a modular 66-watt power adapter is also included. The manufacturer also provides a USB cable, a transparent silicon protective case, and a SIM tool.

Input devices and handling - Fingerprint reader integrated into the power button

The Honor 50 Lite has a capacitive touchscreen that recognizes up to eight touches at a time. Inputs are implemented quickly and precisely. The gliding properties of the protective film that is applied are good, but not comparable with those of glass.

A fingerprint sensor, which is integrated into the power button, is responsible for security. It recognizes stored fingerprints very reliably and is sufficiently fast. Alternatively or additionally, a less secure facial-recognition system that uses the front-facing camera is available as well, and it's much faster.

Display - Flicker-free 60 Hz LCD

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The LC display of the Honor 50 Lite measures 6.67 inches (16.94 cm), and it has a high pixel density due to its Full HD Plus resolution. The brightness of the panel is decent considering the price range, and it's constant both with and without the sensor as well as in the APL50 test.

The black level is quite good and allows for a strong contrast ratio. It only increases slightly to 0.46 cd/m² with evenly distributed bright and dark areas (contrast: 1,044:1).

The low minimum brightness, the flicker-free display, and an optional eye-care mode round off the Honor smartphone nicely.

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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The CalMAN analysis shows that the image is very cool out of the box. The most natural image is only achieved by adjusting the settings. For this purpose, we selected the Normal profile and set the white balance to Standard. If you decide to set the latter to Warm, you will be punished with a slight greenish tint. Overall, however, the display can reproduce colors and grayscales quite accurately.

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
16.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.2 ms rise
↘ 11.6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 26 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
40 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 22 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 49 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

The Honor 50 Lite's display remains legible on cloudy days, but it will reach its limits on sunny days due to its limited brightness.

Viewing-angle stability is good. Content looks warmer at flat viewing angles, and the panel appears a bit dimmer. However, we couldn't detect any screen bleeding or glow effects.

Performance - Snapdragon 662 in the Honor 50 Lite

The Honor 50 Lite is powered by a slightly outdated Snapdragon 662, which has 6 GB of RAM. The system speed is decent, but there are stutters here and there, and the refresh rate of only 60 Hz slows down smooth scrolling.

Compared with the competition, the 50 Lite is equipped with the slowest SoC, but its performance is still satisfactory thanks to the use of the faster UFS storage. Casual games are no problem for the Honor smartphone, but limited frame rates and lower detail levels need to be reckoned with in more demanding games.

Speaker

The mono speaker at the bottom of the Honor 50 Lite offers a good sound that is suitable for occasional videos, games, phone calls, and so on. For prolonged multimedia playback, however, it lacks precision in terms of highs and, as expected, also depth.

Alternatively, a very good audio jack (SNR: 97.79 dBFS) and Bluetooth for wireless transmission are available.
