#8. Honor 10 lite

Honor 10 Lite comes with a 6.21-inch display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels. The display has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a waterdrop notch. It is a bright and colorful IPS LCD panel. Inside, the phone is powered by the Kirin 710 processor. This is the same processor found in phones like the Honor 8X or the Huawei Nova 3i. This processor is combined with 3GB RAM. So, performance won’t be an issue for normal tasks like calling, texting, surfing the web etc. You can also game with this device a little. Just don’t expect the highest frame rates at high graphics settings.Honor 10 lite has a dual camera setup at the back – 13 MP, f/1.8 PDAF & 2 MP, f/2.4, depth sensor. The primary wide lens seems like a step down from the 20MP f/1.8 one of the Honor 8X. At the front, Honor 10 Lite comes rocking a 24MP single selfie camera. This looks like a step up from the Honor 8X’s 16MP sensor. But these are just numbers, we will have to use this phone in real life to see if this difference makes any difference to the photos.
