Nice
Same price at Carphone Warehouse or the Honor UK site but with BT heaphones also
I've just took receipt of this, I bought it off aliexpress, it's the white version, lovely looking phone to be fair, haven't tried it yet, got it for a steal at £135, has Chinese branding on it, but only one line of writing which you wouldn't even notice once I put one of the two free cases I also received, also sent me the UK adapter plug, and didn't get charged customs. Overall really impressed with the aliexpress service.
Very sell this phone as well, so if you're one of these people that get regular emails with discount codes then it will be a little bit cheaper + you can put it on 0% credit.
"Massive 3000mAh"
"Allowing you to go a whole day on a single charge" - Wow, amazing!

Good price, but it's not the biggest or best battery life around.

I would say though definitely use the case in the box cos this phone isn't very robust. I have seen drop tests of this phone and the glass cracked both sides on first drop. Also contrary to what some say the sides are not aluminium it is plastic. These are areas where Honor cuts costs

I've currently got a 20% off anything on the very website code, but I'm waiting for one of the more expensive phones to go on sale. I could have the honor view 10 for £360, but a bit too much to spend for me.

"Clocking in at a massive 3000mAh"


Crap battery...I'll stick with my Maze Alpha (4000Mah, Octoacore, 6Gb Ram, 64Gb Rom) until the Lenovo P3 appears later this year.

3000Mah is average at best....certainly not "Massive" and lasting "a whole day on a single charge' really is nothing to shout about.

Not if you're an iphone user


haha..that is a fair point. I spend a LOT of time travelling, often stuck in airports for long periods...whenever there is a charge point somewhere you can guarantee that every single phone plugged in is an iphone.

But after spending a year with a Lenovo P2 (5100Mah battery, quadcore, 4gb ram £199) that lasted 3 whole days between charges and now using a 4000Mah Maze Alpha that lasts an easy 2 days between charges I just think 3000Mah batteries in smarphones are a poor effort by the manufacturer when a little more though into the phone design will allow a more generous battery.

all the bezeless screens, dual cameras and 4k screens are pretty useless when the phone battery is flat....

Compare the spec of this phone against the £150 Maze Alpha with its 4000Mah battery and it really doesn't seem to offer a lot.

Don't want to burst your bubble but looking online the maze alpha battery life is pretty poor for that size battery.

I get two days of fairly heavy use from mine....sure there are better optimised devices out there with SoC's with better power saving but £ for £ I can't find much better right now.

When the Lenovo P3 rolls out though it will be worth a look. If it wasn't for the camera on the Lenovo P2 I'd still be using that though

Why not try the new Energizer phone being announced at MWC this weekend?? It features a massive 16, 000mAh battery

How are the cameras on this, it's got 4 for Pete's sake, any of them any good? the Chinese phone makers don't look like they care how bad their cameras are, they are just stuffing them with cheap low quality cameras. Seen YouTube and that, but rather have a honest review from someone here, especially low light performance basically when it's dark out and we have the lights (yellow not blue) on inside.

They are decent you know, considering it's a "£200" phone. I'm currently using the zte axon 7 full size version, and the 9lite seems to take better photos to my eye.
I'm no photographer and I couldn't tell you exact specifics, but just for a random comparison they seem better.
Low light isn't as good, but the shots on the honor seem a lot crisper, maybe that's because this is a brand new phone with dual cameras, and the zte is 18 months old now.
FYI, my wife has the honor 7x and that has a good camera aswell, I'm not sure if they are the same camera however.

They are keeping very quiet about the dimensions though so I suspect that sadly it will be very chunky and more than a little weighty....
I've got this phone and it's not bad but i think xiaomi offer more for your money. The biggest gripe i have is with EMUI 8, the bloody thing locks most things down and insists on being the default launcher. Not much interest yet on xda for this device either, and that's surprising considering its supposed to support project treble. I'll probably keep it as a second phone but can't in all honesty say I'm pleased or would recommend anyone drop 200 smackers on it.

They say the front cameras on this are better than the rear cameras. Honor and Huawei make great cameras but often their budget ones are not so good

For best lowlight shots use a tripod and manual mode. Honor and Huawei make great night shots with manual mode but not auto

It's not great if it only lasts a day, would expect a couple of days at least.
