Reviews for the Honor 50 Lite

76.9% Honor 50 Lite review: Entry-level smartphone with thick 64 MP camera | Notebookcheck
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.
60% Honor 50 Lite review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The 50 Lite has a build quality that could be expected from larger models both at a glance and in hand. It’s difficult to fault Honor for some of the design choices it has made with this build and the few faults it does have can be easy to overlook. The main camera will provide adequate use for simple, hands-on photography but the increasing trend of quantity over quality when it comes to camera rings has let Honor down in this respect. While it can be outperformed against competing models at a similar price point, the 50 Lite is a commendable effort to bring Honor’s emphasis on full Android support to its devices since parting from Huawei. This is helped in part by its large display. Anyone hoping to find a ‘large’ phone at a markedly lower price point will find plenty to like here. Combine this with a battery that can keep up with heavy use most users will immediately reap the benefits straight out of the box.

Honor 50 Lite Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Honor 50 Lite smartphone appeals to the masses looking for a decent mid-range phone that brings decent features and specs according to current market needs. Plus, you’re getting decent battery life, better camera quality, and ample storage. However, there are some flaws, such as the company not informing about the processor, nor the screen offering exceptional features. It looks like everything has been invested in the battery section and there’s nothing left for performance and screen. All in all, the Honor 50 Lite is an unbalanced phone without 5G support, and if you’re just looking for decent battery life then you should definitely take a look at this phone. However, it would be difficult for us to recommend this phone to a user who is looking for a decent experience in general. Instead, you can check for the Vivo iQOO Z5x smartphone as an alternative option.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

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.


SD 662: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2 GHz Cortex-A73 cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in a 11 nm LPP process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.67":

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.


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).


70.81%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
