OUR VERDICT

The Honor 8 Lite is a decent mid-range smartphone that gets major things right. The design looks stunning and Honor has majorly imroved on its weakness of software UI. The phone comes with latest Android 7.0 Nougat and the EMUI 5.0 is mostly stock. However, the phone is not a great perfromer as one would expect. The biggest competitor for Honor 8 Lite is the Lenovo Z2 Plus, which gets Snapdragon 820 with 4GB RAM at Rs. 17,499. Read our full verdict on the last page.
