About Huawei Honor 20 Lite - Review, Specs + more What you need to know Mid-range smartphone with triple camera 6.21 inch IPS display Octa-core CPU and 4 GB of RAM The Honor 20 lite is a smartphone from the middle price range, which stands out in particular with its triple camera and the large display with small Notch. This measures 6.21 inches diagonally and resolves to 2340 × 1080 pixels. Visually, this smartphone is beautiful - and feels years ahead of the equivalent iPhone. Great-looking phones at affordable prices is Honor's raison d'etre. If you can't afford a proper flagship, or don't want to pay silly money for a phone, but want similar styling punch and a few of the same features, Honor usually has something for you. That's the idea behind the 20 Lite, a taster of what the brand has in store for its affordable flagship Honor 20. It's got skinny screen bezels, a triple-lens camera (sort of), hardware that punches above its price and a gorgeous colour scheme. The only problem is the P30 Lite. The two phones are nearly identical, except a few features. And the small matter of £80. Time to find out if the Honor is a steal at £250, or whether you should stump up the extra for the Huawei. Like a lot of Honor phones, the 20 Lite is all about faking it until you make it: it looks like a premium handset, with a design that mimics the glass-and-metal sandwich favoured by top-money rivals. Only here things are made from plastic to keep costs down. You'd only know when you pick it up, as from a distance it looks the bee's knees, with a 90% screen-to-body ratio, skinny bezels, and an ultra-shiny rear panel in eye-catching Phantom Blue hues. This phone is all about looks. It has a reassuring heft, despite the plastic build, and isn't so big that small hands will struggle to wield it. The triple camera array sits to one side, bulging out a little but not enough to catch every time you slip it into a pocket. There was even room in the budget for a fingerprint sensor, which is conveniently placed on the back right where your index finger sits. It's quick to unlock, too, giving it the edge over much more expensive (but still early) in-display tech. A few drawbacks Unfortunately, only an IPS and no more economical AMOLED panel is used here. The main camera consists of a main lens with 24 megapixels and 2 additional image sensors with 8 or 2 megapixels. There is a phase-focus (PDAF), but videos are recorded without optical image stabiliser and only in Full HD - slightly disappointing. In addition to the camera technology, the Honor 20 lite impresses with its relatively high system performance. There are 4 GB of RAM and a 2.2 GHz Kirin 710 octa-core processor available. Another advantage is the 128 GB device memory and the comprehensive connectivity. These include WLAN, LTE, Bluetooth, NFC and a memory card reader. However, the 20 Lite is still charged via a microUSB interface and the capacity of the permanently installed battery is only average for a device with a display larger than 6 inches. Verdict - should you buy it? A good alternative is the Samsung Galaxy A50, which scores higher on our scale, with an OLED display and a long battery life - think of it as like a cheaper Galaxy S10 with less features but still a brilliant phone. Which incidentally is where the Honor 20 Lite sites within the Honor range - the Honor 20 and Honor 20 PRO are better phones, but it really depends on what your budget is. The rest of the range is as follows: Honor 20 Honor 20 Pro If you're looking for a cheap, reliable phone with a lot of oomph and looks to kill, then you'll struggle to find better than the Honor 20 Lite - though if it were up to me I'd opt for the regular Honor 20: it's a small premium worth paying over the Lite model, and has a better hand-feel.
