Honor 9 Lite : Making a strong case to be the budget king

The Honor 9 Lite isn’t just a low-rent Honor 9 as the name might lead you to think. It’s also a curious title to give to a phone launching this long after the Honor 9. There is, however, one striking similarity: the shiny back.

The color envelopes the entire phone save for the camera cutouts, and the Honor logo squeezed on the front. Often, a manufacturer logo on the front of a phone is part of a huge bezel, but not so here. The Honor 9 Lite has a 5.65-inch, 2160 x 1080 FHD+ display at 18:9 aspect ratio. Or as Honor calls it, FullView. I’m not personally sold yet on these type of displays, but on a phone this size it makes total sense.

It’s still entirely true that EMUI will split opinions, especially among Android purists. It’s still bright and bold, the menu system is blindingly white and by default, there’s no app drawer out front. But you can add an app drawer in settings and there are a bunch of themes you can download from the Play Store to change everything else. I found one that mixes neon app icons with a dark theme throughout the phone’s UI, and it’s much nicer.

The truth is also that EMUI just performs a lot better than it once did. The “WTF” moments are few and far between and it’s just plain fast. The Honor 9 Lite is running the latest EMUI 8.0 on top of Android 8.0 Oreo, which even though we’d expect on any new phone, is still pleasantly surprising on a budget model.

Why have two cameras on your phone when you can have four? The Honor 9 Lite packs a pair of sensors on both sides of the phone, and in both cases the same 13MP + 2MP arrangement. Why is this important? Mostly because it allows the front facing camera to shoot in portrait mode, with Honor opting for a hardware solution to the problem.

It’s no longer remarkable in any way that you can get through a full day comfortably on a single charge. It’s also not particularly shocking that you can go a decent chunk into the following day. I’d probably still recommend charging this phone at night, but you can happily hammer its 3000mAh battery all day and not have to worry about needing a charger before you go home.
