Cameras

Taking a look at the cameras, the HONOR 10 Lite comes with a total of 2 cameras at the back, and another one that nicely occupies the notch only. The HONOR 10 Lite has two different cutouts at the back for its cameras instead of having a single piece of glass that covers both the cameras. This makes it less prone to breaking – which is something that I absolutely support.

HONOR 10 Lite

The HONOR 10 Lite’s cameras are as such:

  • Rear-facing cameras
    • 13MP f/1.8 with PDAF
    • 2MP depth sensor
  • Selfie camera
    • 24MP f/2.0 fixed focus

As usual, you can check out the full album alongside with all metadata at our Shutterfly album.

Rear-facing cameras

First off, the rear-facing camera actually great for social media posts. It is still a little noisy under direct sunlight, but generally is sitll okay. The white balance is also something that I personally prefer as it got the colors right.

Speaking of colors, take a look at the AI mode. Once again, turning on AI mode will create a much saturated image overall and has HDR turned on. Depending on the situation, it actually looks better with AI turned on.

The depth sensor does a fantastic job in separating the image as well. Take a look at this little plant.

When it comes to indoor shots however, that’s where the quality of the images taken start to take a toll. The images just looks… somewhat fuzzy and blurry overall.

The camera continues to underperform in low-light shots, showing high amounts of noise and fuzziness. If you’re wondering why the image looks purple, that is because of the ISO being raised too high.

Selfie camera

With a 24MP selfie camera but does not have autofocus, the image will never look sharp or pretty enough for a print. However, they are once again very usable for social media.

Camera UI

The camera UI did not change much since the HONOR 8X. Still is the same camera UI here.

The Pro mode on the HONOR 10 Lite can go down to ISO 50 and a shutter speed of 1/4000s to 8 seconds. The shutter speed slider is clunky to say the least – but works.
