Honor 10X Lite review: Honor Latest Smartphone Price in Pakistan 2021
Honor 10X Lite price in Pakistan is 34,000
For today’s smartphone market, six months without a new model in the lineup is a long time. However, Honor has released a sequel to its popular budget 9X Lite device – the Honor 10X Lite. There are not many differences between them, but they are all important. In the 10X Lite, Honor has added two more new cameras, a USB-C connector with faster charging, and a significantly longer battery life. However, the rest of the new budget smartphone Honor raises many questions. With them, I tried to figure it out in the review.
Design and appearance
The Honor 10X Lite has a very memorable design, in this it does not lag behind modern trends. The body is made entirely of plastic and immediately makes it clear that the smartphone does not belong to the premium segment. The bezels around the screen are noticeable but acceptable. At the front, in the center of the top, there is a hole for the front camera. The body has three colors: “Emerald green”, “Icelandic frost” and “Midnight darkness” (green, blue and black).
The main module with cameras protrudes slightly above the rear panel, but not much. The three cameras are positioned vertically on top of each other, with an LED flash underneath. Near the top, you can see the depth sensor. Since there is an LCD screen, there is no question of a fingerprint scanner underneath. Rear-facing scanners are falling out of fashion, so the 10X Lite handles fingerprint reading through the power button.
It is located on the right side, just above it there are volume keys. On the left is a slot for two nano-SIM and one microSD card. On the bottom side in the middle is the USB-C connector. To the right of it is the speaker, and to the left is the microphone and 3.5mm headphone jack. Above you can find another microphone. Unfortunately, there is no IrDA here.
Display and security
The Honor 10X Lite has a fairly large 6.67-inch display. It is noticeably larger than the 6.5-inch 9X Lite screen. The new model uses an LCD panel with a resolution of 2400 × 1080 and an aspect ratio of 20: 9. The pixel density is 395 ppi when the maximum brightness is 430 nits. In adaptive mode, this indicator remains almost the same. The default color profile has an average delta E of 5.4 – the shades are clearly shifted towards blue. The “Warm” profile has even worse indicators: the deviation is 5.9. However, with manual tuning, I managed to improve this figure to 2.9. Alas, the 10X Lite display lacks HDR support. Face unlocking is carried out using a camera, which is not the safest method. It is better to do this using the fingerprint scanner located in the power button.
Honor 10X Lite cameras
The back of the 10X Lite houses a quad camera system. But. as is often the case on inexpensive smartphones, there are two “real” cameras. A 48MP Quad Bayer sensor is used as the main one, below it is an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera. Honor has added a 2MP macro lens and a depth sensor for the same 2MP here. The shooting app is the same as on all the latest Huawei smartphones.
There is a Pro mode that works just like on flagships. You can adjust ISO (50 to 3200), shutter speed (1/4000 sec. To 30 sec.), Exposure compensation (-4 to +4 EV in 1/3 steps) and white balance. Focus selection is also available. If you adjust the exposure incorrectly, the smartphone will alert you to this. The quality of the main camera of the Honor 10X Lite is not the best. Even in daylight, sharpness and detail are lacking. On the other hand, colors have high saturation, although the dynamic range is not the widest. In low light, it’s best to switch to Night Mode right away.
True, the resolution of the final photos will be only 8 MP. But, the detail remains relatively high, as does the saturation. It’s a pity that only the main camera has this mode. The ultra wide-angle lens is surprisingly good. It’s fine with detail, so the 8MP shots seem very pleasing. However, the Poco X3 has a much better 13MP lens. Macro lens captures low quality images at 2MP resolution.
But sometimes the results look quite good. Given the poor quality of the main sensor, the 10X Lite macro camera can be useful in some situations. The 8MP front camera isn’t impressive. There is a lot of noise in the pictures, colors are pale, and the bokeh effect is a little unstable – part of the face may appear blurred.
Since Honor owns Huawei, there are no Google services on the Honor 10X Lite. The Android operating system works without access to Google Play and all associated software (software). Here we get Android 10 with a Magic UI 3.1 wrapper stretched over it. In this version of the interface, the “Today” page has replaced the “Google Feed”. On the left-most screen, you’ll find a search bar, shortcuts to your favorite contacts, photos, and more.
There will also be news in the feed. There are two navigation methods to choose from. The first is the classic virtual buttons on the screen. The second is gestures. Swipe up performs the function “Home”, up with a stop opens the list of running applications, diagonally from the lower right or left corner – “Back”.
It is difficult to find reasons why I should safely recommend Honor 10X Lite for purchase and vice versa. The smartphone does not have the most powerful hardware, and the cameras are average. But, there is a large display and an autonomous battery. Google services, of course, do not, unlike other manufacturers’ models, although this is not a problem if you are a follower of the brand.
