What about the rest of the iron

For several years, Honor has released so many smartphone models that some of them have undeservedly faded into the shadows, not having time to be tried by users. From the very beginning, the company focused on devices with advanced photo capabilities and experimented with mobile sensors. The success of Honor’s developments in this direction confirmed the DxOMark rating of camera phones, which in 2022 sensationally led the flagship Magic 4 Ultimate.

Among the Honor products of past years, there are real gems that have now fallen in price. The HONOR 10 Lite attracted attention with an unusual set of cameras: its 24 MP front camera is almost twice the resolution of the main sensor. The smartphone was conceived as the perfect selfie gadget. At the time of release, it was a fast and productive device with an advanced selfie camera, excellent in terms of price-technology-quality ratio. Despite the fact that the HONOR 10 Lite is already an old man by the standards of the mobile world, its characteristics are quite working until today. Its body is elegant and thin, the edges are finished with metal, and the back surface consists of 8 layers. A small device with a diagonal of 6.21 inches will appeal to lovers of compact devices.

HONOR 10 Lite equipped with FHD IPS matrix of excellent quality with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 and a pixel density of 415 PPI. The smartphone intelligently manages the resolution and automatically downgrades to 1560 x 720 when needed to save power. You have to take care of energy saving, because the battery is set to 3400 mAh, which is already unusual. 4/64 GB of memory is quite viable, besides there is a separate slot for an SD card. And in HONOR 10 Lite there is an NFC module, dual-band WiFi and a 3.5 mm minijack. All this is controlled by an octa-core Hisilicon Kirin 710 processor, which has 4 Cortex A-73 cores at 2.2 GHz and 4 Cortex-A53 cores at 1.7 GHz. The chipset showed itself well in practice, it was later used in more expensive models.

Paying only 10 thousand for such a device seems to be a very attractive option. That’s how much you can buy a selfie smartphone on Yandex.Market. Price HONOR 10 Lite 4/64 GB is equal to 9 999 rubles. by this link. The same smartphone with 6/64 GB memory will cost exactly a thousand more and will amount to 11,000 rubles. These are the minimum prices in the entire history of sales of the device – once they asked for 35 thousand for it. The fact that HONOR 10 Lite is still being sold (and bought!) speaks of its relevance, despite its venerable age.
