Talking about the competition in this price range of around 14K, the real competitors of this smartphone are Redmi Note 6 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, Honor 8X and Mi A2. So, the competition in this price range is very high.
If compared with the competition, the smartphone is offering the latest Kirin 710 SoC, 25MP Front Camera and other decent specifications whereas others are offering processor like Snapdragon 660, Snapdragon 636. But that doesn’t mean Kirin 710 is weak or slow, it is a great processor. On the other hand, Honor 10 Lite is offering tons of features that comes with EMUI 9.0.
Overall, We recommend Honor 10 Lite to buy in this price range. However, at the time of writing this article, our first recommendation will be Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 (Flash Review).
