Although the performance of the two smartphones is almost the same, there are still some differences among other sides
Design: The big difference between the HONOR 7X and the HONOR 9 Lite is their boy. The 9 Lite’s fuselage is glass, which is more good-looking and modern. The body of HONOR 7X is aluminum, which is more classic and sturdy. In addition, as the more fashionable phone, the HONOR 9 Lite introduces more colors.
Display: The HONOR 7X’screen is bigger than the HONOR 9 Lite. With the same pixels, the images on the 7X is bit clearer, because it has more ppi density. But their clarity differences may not be great. However, if you want a big smartphone, I will suggest that you should buy the HONOR 9 Lite.
Camera: The camera of 7X is much stronger than that of HONOR 9 Lite. Because it has more mega pixels (MP) than the HONOR 9 Lite. More resolution generally means better picture quality. If you have high requirements for photographing, the HONOR 7X is better for you.
Battery: The HONOR 7X has a bigger battery than the HONOR 9 Lite. It seems that the HONOR 7X can last more time, but the bigger screen and the larger body size perhaps makes it cost more in electricity.
Overall, both the HONOR 9 Lite and the HONOR 7X have their own characteristics. Which mobile phone is better depends on your needs.
