HONOR 10 Lite Gaming Performance + Verdict

Benchmark Notes

For some odd reason, recent HONOR review samples (like the Honor 8X) appear to disable the installation of PCMark and AnTuTu. This prevents us from testing its work, as well as battery performance.

With that in mind, we would counsel that you take the 3DMark gaming performance results with a pinch of salt. We cannot be sure if this review sample is using the same firmware as an actual retail unit.

Gaming Performance – 3DMark

Here is the HONOR 10 Lite’s score running 3DMark, using the Ice Storm Unlimited test.

The Kirin 710 appears to have a slight 7.5% performance advantage over its rival, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710, which powers the OPPO R17 Pro.

A closer examination of the results will show that its ARM Mali-G51 GPU is faster than the Snapdragon 710’s Adreno 616 GPU. On the other hand, it has a slower CPU.

Our Verdict

At first glance, the HONOR 10 Lite is hardly a notable smartphone. Those of us who are used to flagship devices will dismiss it. In fact, we would naturally favour the Honor 10 over it.

But we are not its target market. The HONOR 10 Lite (Price Check) is designed for the lower mid-range market, against rivals like the Realme 2 and Realme 2 Pro. In that regard, it is a formidable competitor.

HONOR 10 Lite in hand

The HONOR 10 Lite offers a large dewdrop display with a new processor in an elegant package, and a great price point. It also boasts a dual-lens camera with very bright f/1.8 lens.

Unfortunately, we are unable to give you a complete verdict because we are unable to test its work and battery performance. But we hope we have provided you with enough information in this review to make an informed decision if this is the right smartphone for you.

Where To Buy The HONOR 10 Lite

The HONOR 10 Lite is available in two variants, at the following price points :

  • 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage : RM 749 / ~US$ 182 / ~£143

The 64 GB model, on the other hand, will be available for sale at a later date, in Sapphire Blue and Shiny Red colour options.
