We got 4.5 to 5 Hours of Sot( Screen on time) on using Mobile data which is good. you will get above 5.5hr Battery life if you use on WiFi. The ideal drain of Honor 10 lite is very low as Honor 9 lite. it takes about 2 hours 27 min to to completely charge the Battery.

EMUI Operating System :

EMUI present on the
Honor 10 lite is very fast & so fluid, No lags were noticed. it comes with lot of bloatware those apps are majorly from Unknown Developers. we Un-install those apps if needed. There are some extra features like Dual Apps, Direct video calling feature make this UI special.

Camera: 

Coming to the Camera Department, Galaxy M30 features a dual Camera setup on the back of the device and a single camera on the front of the device. they work perfectly in Honor 10 lite . let’sdivide the cameras and look at the performance of them

1. Main Camera: the 13MP main Camera is Awesome and features a Fixed Aperture of F/1.8. the daylight pictures are very good and contain very good details. Exposure is in control with decent Dynamic range to take good photos in good lighting Conditions. in low light Conditions, the pictures had a bit noisy which is not to see in this price range

2. Depth Camera: the 2MP Depth lens on Honor 10 lite works does a good job in good lighting conditions. it gives excellent bokeh in good lighting conditions. in low lighting conditions, the 2MP camera does not make a mark due to more noise.

Here Google Camera App makes Diffrence and captures Good pictures in good lighting conditions with Perfect Exposure and dynamic range. we can also access the features of Pixel camera app in this Device by installing app which is good to see.

Video recording can be done up to 1080p @60fps .the video footage has awesome Colours with great sharpness and decent dynamic range. Stabilization is a good in 1080p @60fps And 1080p FHD recording. the video quality in the low night conditions is very poor. Honor can fix this a bit with the software update

This single camera can be used to take portraits images from the front with the Help of Artifical Intelligence.I

Widevine L1 support:

  Honor 10 lite NO has Widevine L1 support to stream HD videos from Amazon Prime or NetFlix. this a feature which we can see in a budget to midrange Smartphone .

All Sensors : 

this
Honor 10 lite has all sensors like proximity, Fingerprint, gyroscope, and sensors. Honor missed the light sensor which is not nice to see.

CONS

the Build quality on Honor 10 lite was not that great it is directly made with back poly carbonate material.

updates on Honor Smartphones are very slow.
