On the camera function, HONOR 9 lite has dual camera and dual front camera while HONOR 7S hasn’t. Dual camera is useful in enhancing certain effects like blur, zoom and wide angle photos. Pairing with a rear 13MP+2MP dual-lens camera and PDAF fast focus, HONOR 9 Lite takes pictures that look more natural and lively. Featuring an industry leading 13MP + 2MP dual-lens system, HONOR 9 Lite’s front camera delivers crystal images with hardware-level bokeh effects.

However, the most important element of user experience is the phone performance. HONOR 9 Lite is equipped with the Kirin 659 Octa-core processor, fabricated in a cutting-edge 16-nanometer process. With a CPU that runs as fast as 2.36GHz and 3GB of high-speed memory, the possibilities are endless for users, whether they’re running multiple apps at once or playing high-performance games. Obviously, more cores and faster CPU HONOR Lite has than HONOR 7S, which means HONOR 9 Lite will bring more smooth experience.

What’s more, HONOR 9 Lite provides more storage capacity than HONOR 7S, which allows you to store more songs, videos, photos and install more applications. It seems to be more in line with the current demand for large capacity. By the way, the screen resolution of HONOR 9 Lite is 1080 x 2160 pixels, which is about 125% more pixels than Huawei HONOR 7S. More resolution means sharper and crisper screen.

According to the comparison above, it’s obvious why a lot of people think HONOR 9 Lite is more cost-effective than HONOR 7S?
