            With the Honor 9 Lite, the Huawei subsidiary brings a price crash to the German market. For 229 euros, there is a well-equipped smartphone with four cameras in a glass housing. What else the Honor 9 Lite can do and whether the purchase is worthwhile, shows the review of TechStage.
Honor 9 Lite: Scope of delivery
In addition to the actual smartphone, buyers receive a charging cable and the corresponding power supply. Inferior quality headphones, such as the identical Huawei P Smart (review), there is not. That protects the environment, because these things really nobody needs. A jack plug in the 3.5 mm standard is available, so any headset can be connected.
The supplied charger does not have a quick charge function; It supplies a voltage of 5 volts and a maximum current of 2 amperes. The power consumption when charging the Honor 9 Lite is a maximum of 13.9 watts, on average, the meter displays a value of 10.2 watts. Fully charging the 3000 mAh battery takes 2 hours and 50 minutes.
        MicroUSB port on the Honor 9 Lite
    For a limited time there is an offer: When purchasing the Honor 9 Lite a 64 GB microSD card is included. The action applies nationwide at all dealers, while stocks last. However, none of our test equipment, which was provided to us directly by Huawei Germany, was included.
Honor 9 Lite: design and workmanship
The Honor 9 Lite is 7.6 mm thin and weighs 149 grams. This makes it feel relatively easy. The phone has a slim design. With a width of 71.9 millimeters, it is comfortable in the hand. However, due to the length of 151 mm, it is too long for one-hand operation with a medium-sized hand.
        Design of the Honor 9 Lite
    The Honor 9 Lite is mainly made of glass. Both the back and the front have a slightly curved glass layer, which comes from the brand manufacturer Corning ("Gorilla Glass"). The frame of the device is made of metal and stabilizes the construction. The processing looks solid overall; the whole construct looks very high quality. Unequal gaps or creaking sounds do not exist. However, the Honor 9 Lite is not dustproof or waterproof, so be careful in wet and rainy weather.
Honor 9 Lite: Hardware
The Honor 9 Lite features a Kirin 659; There are 3 GB of RAM. The eight-core processor is produced by Huawei's subsidiary HiSilicon Technologies and operates at a clock frequency of 2.36 GHz, just like in the Huawei Mate 10 lite (test report) or in the Huawei P Smart (test report). In the usual benchmarks, the smartphone achieved an average result, in Antutu it is 63,000 points. To give an idea of ​​the feasible: Current smartphones of the high-end class reach in the same test 195,000 to 220,000 points.
But as impressive as these numbers may be, the performance of the Honor 9 Lite is quite sufficient for everyday use. Except for a few places, for example, when rotating the display in the camera app, the smartphone hardly jerky and runs smoothly.
The memory of the Honor 9 Lite has a size of 32 GB. After deducting the unusually much factory-installed software, the user has 23 GB available for saving files. The memory can be expanded by microSDXC by up to 2 TB, current memory cards are up to 512 GB. Which memory card is the best for an Android smartphone, you can read in our buying guide.
Just like the Huawei P Smart also supports the almost identical Honor 9 Lite dual SIM. The slide for the SIM cards takes either two nano-SIMs or a SIM and a microSD card. The first SIM dominates 4G LTE in all frequency bands relevant for Germany (B3, B7 and B20). The SIM number two supports only the slow data standard 2G with 9.6 kBit / s on Quadband frequency (850, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz).
        Fingerprint sensor on the Honor 9 Lite
    In the Honor 9 Lite sits a user-replaceable battery with a nominal charge of 3000 mAh. The capacity is above average compared to other devices. The operating time is correspondingly long: 1.5 days with moderate use and 9 hours with intensive and active use. Charging the battery runs wired over the meanwhile come in the years Micro-USB port. At this point, the two-sided useable USB Type C would have been desirable. Wireless charging is not on board, but is not self-evident in this price range.
Smartphones from Huawei and the subsidiary brand Honor control a key feature very well: phoning. We tested the Honor 9 Lite in Greater Hamburg with Vodafone and o2 Telefónica Germany. The call quality and the reception are excellent. Less positive is the quality of the built-in speaker, the volume of which is too low and sounds already from a volume setting of 75 percent tinny sounds.
What else is there? FM radio, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2 and n-standard Wi-Fi. Current ac-WLAN with dual-band radio is not integrated.

Honor 9 Lite: Display
        Display on the Honor 9 Lite
    The Honor 9 Lite has a 18: 9 respectively 2: 1 display. It has thin edges and makes the display slim.
"In the future, we will only obstruct such screens," explain Honor Germany representatives at the launch of the smartphone. The display has a diagonal of 5.65 inches – it is the same display panel as in the Huawei P Smart. In the future, the manufacturer wants to focus more on composite effects and install components that are as identical as possible in many different devices in order to benefit from purchasing and development advantages.
The ad has Full HD + resolution, which is 2160 × 1080 pixels. A total of 2.1 million pixels are displayed, which provide an absolutely sufficient sharpness. The LC display shows excellent colors and, despite the low device price, is not dependent on the viewing angle. The brightness is high.
Honor 9 Lite: Camera
        Dual camera of the Honor 9 Lite
    The Honor 9 Lite is the manufacturer's first smartphone with four cameras. Both the front and the back have the same setup: one dual camera each with 13 and 2 megapixels. Due to the distance between the camera lenses, the device determines depth information in the image. On request, the software of the cameras calculates a bokeh effect, which equals a large aperture of f / 0.95. Images with a blurred background can thus not only the rear, but also on the directed camera. The quality of both cams is identical.
"This puts you and your world perfectly in scene. More likes, shares and followers guaranteed! "Says the product page of Honor Deutschland. We can not promise a guarantee for more "likes", but yes: the picture quality of the cameras is extremely good, and this is especially true for the front camera. Not because she's better than the other, but she's not any worse – and that's a peculiarity. In low light, the camera reaches its limits, on the whole it delivers good and detailed results with great clarity
The camera app on the Honor 9 Lite offers extensive features. In addition to an automatic, it also controls the manual control for photo and video recordings in a maximum possible resolution of Full HD (1080p). In addition, there are functions such as time lapse, long exposure, high contrast (HDR) and moving pictures.
Honor 9 Lite: Software
For the software we have praise and criticism at the same time. The good thing first: The interface is Huawei's EMUI 8.0, based on the current Android version OS 8.0 Oreo. The firmware is up to date, as well as the security patch from Google from Monday, January 1, 2018.
On the Honor 9 Lite, however, a lot of garbage in the form of bloatware is installed. These are apps and games that hardly a user wants. Games include Puzzle Pets, Kingoms, Dragon Mania, travel apps like booking.com or eBay. The apps cost memory, but luckily they can be removed from system memory. Nevertheless, the Honor 9 Lite seems to be heavily subsidized if nine whole apps are offered as an inclusive package.

Not everything is bad: The operating instructions and further information about the device can be found in the service app HiCare. The application designs provide access to a wide selection of looks that transform and customize the look of the software.

Buy Honor 9 Lite?
For the price of 230 euros, the Honor 9 Lite offers a lot: good display, strong battery, two cameras front and rear, a stylish glass case and the latest Android. Hardly anything speaks against a purchase. The manufacturer could have put on USB Type C and WLAN with 5 GHz. The many apps are annoying, but can be uninstall.
If you are looking for a new smartphone with an excellent price-performance ratio, you can use the Honor 9 Lite.
