  1. I’m using honor 8pro. Great phone compared to op5 in both vfm and spec… Honor view 10 with kirin 970 and first dual 4g jio network mobile with affordable price 30k kills every mobile under 40k… Xiomi and OP RIP…

  3. Yet another **** from honor…no custom roms..no updates.. ugly emui..and oh crappy soc..keep that **** with u

    1. Yet another **** from honor, ugly emui – yet this **** will kill your Xiaomi, who buys bulky Xiaomi & Moto phones these days in 2018 when one gets bezel less phones from Honor at 12k-13k even with Oreo.

      MARK MY WORDS – Honor will kill Xiaomi, Xiaomi still do not have any mid-range bezel less 18:9 phone, 16:9 phones looks bulky & ugly, anyone who have used 18:9 bezel less phone will never use a 16:9 phone. Xiaomi is too late, January 2018, still no bezel less phones in mid-range. Honor has 3 (9i,7x & 9 Lite),even Oppo,Vivo,LG has bezel less mid-range phones. Xiaomi has ‘BIG ZERO’. Xiaomi will die in the market without 18:9 bezel less phones.

    2. Lets wait for few days/weeks , after launch of both 9 lite and redmi 5 plus then only we will come to know who wins ?!?.
      But As per first impressions done by reviewers of honor 9 lite – it is very good 18:9 display phone with quad cameras .
      But Soc is Not equal to Redmi 5+ sd625( Gogi’s Benchmark was 76k ).
      But Redmi 5 plus has only single rear cam and honor 9 lite has dual cam.
      I think if they launch 9 lite @11000 -12k 3GB variant then it will be surely hit.

  5. Xiaomi used to offer excellent VFM phones but after their extraordinary success in short time they became greedy. They started increasing the price while no significant change in specifications. Basically old wine in not so new bottle.
    Not everyone in this world wants to change his or her phone every 6 months or every year. Huawei Honor in affordable range and LG in premium range have stated to price their phone sensibly and they may pose a serious threat to Xiaomi/OnePlus and Samsung respectively in times to come.

  7. Was waiting for Xiaomi to actually launch phone with Quad camera, but its Honor.

    4GB & 64GB makes sense, better battery would have been worth.

    1. Xiaomi is born to lose, Huawei/Honor is born to win. Bezel less Honor 7x & 9i looks like Oneplus 5T(33k) while 9 Lite looks like LG G7 (32k). Honor is providing bezel less phones for masses. There is no other company other than Huawei/Honor which has so many bezel less phones – Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Lite/Honor 9i, Honor 7x, Honor 9 Lite, Honor View 10/ V10, Huawei Nova 2s. Next month they will be launching Huawei P11, P12, P20, P20+, P20 Pro – all of this phones will be bezel less. 2018 will be all about bezel less phones. Huawei will kill Sammy, Apple, LG, Google Pixel, Sony, HTC while Honor will kill Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo & Vivo. Huawei/Honor will become the No.1 smartphone brand in India in 2019 & in the entire world by mid 2020.

        1. Bhai break Laga, ye kuchh jyada hi ho gya… Samsung has very good hold in offline market which at present no other company can take over unless and until Huwei bring these bezzeless/18:9 aspect ratio phones in offline market, they cannot be No.1… There are many people who like to buy phones thru local markets…

          1. Bro, Do you even watch YOUTUBE videos? I have seen Kirin 659 handsomely defeating SD625 in 80% of those videos.

      1. U r ryt bro.. I hav used honor 5c,5x,6x,7x n now 9i..just awesome… Rich ui experience like mi…. N camera is far far btr thn redmi phones.

        1. Kabir bro, Xiaomi still has no mid-range bezel less phones (we are not counting Mix 2 & View 10 since they are high end). Honor is giving Indian people lots of cheap bezel less phones. First comes design & display, then comes camera & processor. When you flaunt your phones in malls & movie halls, everyone first notice the design & display, they do not notice the camera & processor.

  8. Vilte is not supported in any Honor phone. Its deal breaking for some person like me. Which processor is better sd 625 or kirin 659 ?

  9. Going to be a good budget phone, but problem is with flipkart flash sales..
    Expected price is 11999₹ & 13999₹ for 3/32gb & 4/64gb versions.

  11. There is no point launching such phones in mid range segment..unless the price is also really “Lite”.

    1. Honor 9 Lite Price – 3GB/32GB – Rs 11499, 4GB/32GB – Rs 13499, 4GB/64GB – Rs 16499. Honor will kill Xiaomi this year in India. Mark my words. Xiaomi will lose from nowadays due to lack of bezel less mid range phones. Honor has 3 bezel less mid range phones – 9i, 7x & 9 Lite. Xiaomi has zero bezel less mid range phone(not counting View 10 & Mix 2 as they are high end). 2018 will be all about bezel less phones from Samsung, Apple, LG, Oneplus & Huawei/Honor.

  13. If camera is good, this may be my next phone!!
    Just worried about the back glass though!

    1. Honor 9 Lite Price – 3GB/32GB – Rs 11499, 4GB/32GB – Rs 13499, 4GB/64GB – Rs 16499

  14. It comes with oreo out of the box.. What’s your opinion gogi ji.. Honor 7x or honor 9lite,
    Maybe its a plastic body… I guess and from 16mp they have gone with 13 mp…. But front has upgraded… And design looks more better…

    1. 659 is good bro, its powerful as snapdragons 600series… And using it in my 7x and there’s no problem, games runs smoothly, amazing graphics and all….

      1. @milan, how is the camera and battery back up of 7x and also let me know if there is double tap to wake function in it.

        1. Yup its there… And camera is awesome, well in update it will get even better… As honor is working on camera… And you’ll see more features in honor’s emui 8

  18. Gogi Sir,
    What is the difference between infinity display and full view display? Plz.clear

    Jitendra Jain

    1. No difference…. both are 18:9 ratio displays….Those are just marketing words used by the companies….!

    2. They are same Jitendra bro, Samsung calls Infinity, LG calls ‘FullVision’ while Huawei/Honor calls ‘FullView’, same things diffrent brands call it different. There is slight difference though – Samsung uses 18.5:9 display while LG, Oneplus,Google Pixel,HTC, Huawei/Honor, Oppo, Vivo uses 18:9 display

  19. There is almost no difference between Kirin 658 and Kirin 659.. therefore in the graphics front this will not be powerful.. however this will be best device for daily use..
    best screen size, best resolution, honor tag, 16nm chipset and 4 cameras go best in its class… it clearly outperform Xiaomi Redmi 5’s if not used for extensive gaming.

  20. REDMI 5 PLUS competitor is here. Or should i say “5 PLUS KILLER”. Lets see who launches their phones 1st. !!!!!!

    1. Honor will kill Xiaomi, Honor has 3 mid range bezelless phones – 7x, 9i & now 9 Lite, Xiaomi has no mid range bezelless phone
