Huawei Honor 6X

Huawei Honor 6X starts getting Android Nougat update in India

While the Honor 8 Lite's design is worth appreciating, its display was underwhelming. The handset has a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display, a combination that is used widely across multiple smartphones in the mid-segment. The display is coated with 2.5D curved glass. Although we like the curved glass coating, it also means easy picking up of minor scratches on the display from the corners.

The display is bright and crisp but not the best one seen in the smartphone in a given price range. Like other mid-rangers, this too has a Blue Light filter, which you can activate manually or set a schedule for. Some of the other options that shouldn't come as a surprise for you are the font size change, themes, text style options, screen saver and colour temperature adjustment. The smartphone's screen manages to make itself readable under bright daylight situations.

However, one of the drawbacks is the omission of the oleophobic coating, which makes it vulnerable to even slightest of smudges and fingerprints. We would prefer you to apply a screen guard on the Honor 8 Lite. Besides this minor issue in the screen, it is decent.

Performance and camera
Performance is one of the departments where the Honor 8 Lite falls short of impressing us. Although it is the same processor (Kirin 655) that powered the Honor 6X, which was an impressive handset in itself, it fails to make the Honor 8 Lite run fluently. We encountered lags in certain places while playing heavy games and multitasking. For instance, we tried the newly-launched graphic-heavy Injustice 2 and the device hanged every single time. Playing full-HD videos from the storage was no problem per say.
