DUBAI – Honor has been exceptional in delivering out excellent-value smartphones ever since, and its latest Honor 9 Lite is evidently no exception.
What I like most of it is it bolsters a decent quad-camera setup and a very handsome design. It definitely delivers exceptional bang with affordable price.
Honor 9 Lite has premium design with excellent 18:9 screen and uses aluminium frame and the latest version of Android to name a few.
For the record, it’s the most affordable 18:9 phone currently in the market.
With 5.65-inch screen, it isn’t too big or too small. It hits a sweet-spot size that gives you a generous amount of screen while also being manageable, even for smaller hands.
With 18:9 aspect ratio, it has no physical button resulting in a 75.5% screen-to-bezel ratio.
Its bottom is home to a micro USB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack, along with the single speaker, while the power and volume rocker button are on the right-hand side.
Its screen has a full HD+ resolution of 1080×2160. The resulting images are sharp with a pixel density of 428 pixels per inch.
The screen is an IPS panel that offers great viewing angles and good brightness levels, making it usable in bright conditions.
In terms of sheer quality, the Honor 9 Lite won’t have the punch and depth of the OLED screen on the Samsung Galaxy A5, but with virtually no OLED screens currently available on phones of this price, this screen choice is easily justified.
Honor 9 Lite is not a flagship phone and it has only 32GB of storage in contrast to the 64GB or 128GB found in today’s top-enders.
Honor 9 Lite is priced at AED 849 in the market.
