Expert review by : Jessica Dolcourt (cnet.com.au)

Huawei's Honor 8 Lite skips the dual camera

 

This is one Honor phone that sticks to a traditional single camera.

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

Love it!

 

It has great looking and easy to use. It has twin cameras which is great in low-light condition. The response of the finger print sensor is extremely fast and it is even faster than iphone 6s.
