For the appearance, the HONOR 7A uses front/back glass and an aluminum frame, from the double-sided 2.5D glass to the stunning layered nano-etched design on its back, the HONOR 9 Lite shines bright with its mirror-like effect. It looks more stylish and modern. But someone may more like the design of the HONOR 7A, because its aluminum body is more crash resistant.

As for the performance, obviously, the HONOR 9 Lite has a faster CPU than the HONOR 7A. In terms of its 2.36 GHz Octa-core CPU, is about 57% faster than the HONOR 7A. It is bound to bring a smoother experience. The HONOR 9 Lite is equipped with the HiSilicon Kirin 659, playing mainstream games, such as Honor of Kings and PUBG, are no problem.

In addition, the HONOR 9 Lite has a much better screen resolution than the HONOR 7A. Its 2160x1080 FHD+ and 18:9 bezel-less display empowers you to multi-task and enjoy a more dynamic visual experience.

And the HONOR 9 Lite adds the dual front camera this time. As it says on the poster, the HONOR 9 Lite’s front camera features an industry leading 13MP + 2MP dual-lens system, delivering crystal images with hardware-level bokeh effects. Moreover, with panorama selfie, gesture control shooting, and built-in effects, enjoy your selfies with more fun. This is really a good function for people who love selfie.

However, the HONOR 7A has a front camera flash allows you to take selfies in low light. And its budget price is really attractive.
