Another nice new phone with a feeble battery
Voted hot due to affordability, but think I like the Honor 9 lite more for the same price.

Another nice new phone with a feeble battery


3000mah is not too bad, though there's quite a few that beat it these days. How Huawei manage that capacity is key though.
... Is it just me, but I can't take a "dual camera" seriously as a prospect when the auxiliary camera is 2mp. Can't help feeling that Huawei keep adding a Christmas Cracker cameras on their phones to make them "dual camera". How much can 2mp really help the final picture?

Exactly, the way I see it is, I'm using the pixel 2 xl, and it has an amazing camera, probably one of the best, this has a single lens and it does everything I need it too. Period

The pixel xl2 is one of the best according to many sites. I'm not against a dual camera, or even a triple one. But 2mp is a poor excuse for anything since about 2001, and I can't really see how it would add anything of any value other than the ability to market it as a dual camera phone. Adding a half decent mp lens can work, whether mono to add more light, or a tele to give more flexibility, or a wide angle lens if you're an estate agent and need to photograph lots of rooms!

The second camera is for depth of field, it doesn't need to be high resolution.

It kind of does if it's going to do it at all well. Otherwise you're not actually going to have the optical information to work with and it will just be software mainly. The camera reviews l've seen of the Huaweis/Honors with a similar set-up to this so far bear this out too.

Yep sounds like that to me too.

Mr Switch or Mrs Witch (can’t figure it out) posts every phone deal (s)he can find and not all of them are good. (S)he wants to become known here as a phone deal expert, as far as I can tell. Perhaps the deals are because she or he has children or some such but I don’t know it’s just hard to see the point in this deal.

The comments above are all off putting.

I'm no phone deal expert, or phone expert, I just see something of good value (in my eyes, maybe not yours) and I post it.

I just like finding deals and I post them.

I posted this because its unreleased and am making people aware huawei have ANOTHER new phone on the way, which is good value even though you and @ElgyVeeten think it should be under £100, doesn't mean other people do.

I do have two wonderful children yes, and I dont see what that has got to do with it. They are 4 and 1!

To be fair, I've posted a few stinkers, but I've also posted a fair few good/great ones imho.

I don't understand the criticism, are you not on here for the same reason as me, that being to find deals for your fellow hukd'ers?

This seems to be good. Dual sim and the memory card too. Many dual sims now only have the second sim or memory card option, not both.

I recently had the Honor 9 Lite with the same camera set-up. The bokeh effects created by the cameras were much, much worse than what my supposedly inferior Nokia 5 can produce with its single lens, using the Google Camera app (it is a bit slow though).

One big problem for me on the Honor 9 Lite (and I'm assuming the same for the 7A and 7C) is that it doesn't support Barclays Mobile Banking, the app states that it "doesn't support rooted devices" despite not being rooted. I contacted Barclays about the issue and they simply stated that they no longer support Huawei devices.

Either you had a dodgy 1+ or the low light performance is just better in the 6x miraculously somehow, but the auxilliary 2mp camera won't be responsible for helping that, it's just for (fake) "bokeh" as several other posts mention.
Why do Huawei/Honor fart out so many different-but-not-really-different phones? Do they just have designers that would otherwise be sat around with nothing to do? I can’t see why anyone would suddenly jump and say ‘I must have this’ who hasn’t already bought an Honor 9 Lite/P Smart/Honor 7X/Whatever else.

Maybe the case Jazz. Will never know. Maybe all OP3's aren't great in low light?

All I can say is the Huawei claim it does help with low light and that appears to be the case. I would have expected the OP3 to be better all round but the 6X is deffo better in low light.

I don't think Huawei claims the secondary camera on the 6X (and things like the P Smart) help with low light, as all they're there for is to act as depth sensors. They don't actually contribute any image data.

The P20 Pro and Mate 10 Pro do use both sensors to help process a better image but their secondary (and tertiary) cameras are full-on sensors which can also be used to take photos in their own right. The monochrome sensor on the P9 also supposedly helped in low light because a true monochrome sensor can absorb photons better than a colour sensor, so they used the image data for both to create better dynamic range. In practice I didn't think the P9 took particularly great colour photos, but the B&W sensor was certainly fun to use.

I've never been wowed by an Huawei phone in the camera stakes - my most recent P Smart camera is an absolute joke - and when I've looked at P20 Pro image comparisons online I haven't felt as enamoured by the output as some people. It seems everyone is overusing the handheld night mode to create dynamic looking shots but to me they look like they've just been processed in Snapseed's HDR Scape tool. I'm yet to see a mobile phone camera produce as good an auto shot as the Pixel 2 to be honest - I don't even feel that the iPhone X is a particularly big step-up from the 7 in terms of its handling of contrast and its dynamic range and low light performance. The S9 still exhibits Samsung's 'milky' image processing and obsessive noise smearing algorithm.

I'm going off on a tangent now

Your probably correct in everything you say Misterleoni, and it probably means my OP3 low light pictures are really poor as the 6X is better. I wasn't expecting the Mrs's 6X to match my more expensive OP3 but the results were clearly better and we made damn sure the shots were identically taken.

"According to Honor, this dual-lens setup will also improve the pixel resolution of an image even in low light." was said in this review.

In Huawei's case it's probably just BS as they're known to exaggerate. I haven't owned a OnePlus since the 2 so I'm not sure what their performance is like in the camera stakes, but I'm part of a big tech crowd and the consensus seems to be that they don't have the best imagining team and I'd imagine the sensor is quite lowly. Companies like Apple and Samsung (and Google now) tend to use better camera components and employ large teams of specialists, where teams like OnePlus are cheaper for a reason - there has to be some skimping somewhere. If you haven't tried sideloading the Pixel camera APK though I'd suggest doing so - it will make a huge difference.
Thanks for the suggestion Misterleoni.

Next time I'm comparing I will also take a low light show with the old Nokia N86, (with Variable Aperture.) Will probably take a better shot than the 6X or OP3.

You may be right, but the old sensor on the N86 might have worse dynamic range and the ISP in that old 400mhz processor won't really compete with modern inequivalents in terms of processing capabilities. The maximum aperture on the N86 was a lot narrower too, and I don't think the sensor was particularly large (VS the N8, which really did have a decent sized sensor). If the N86 takes better photos than a modern smartphone then it's pretty shameful for those modern smartphone manufacturers (unless we are talking about super-budget phones).

The big downside to older phones - even ones as recent as the Lumia 1020 - is that while the optics and the sensors might be great, the shot to shot time and ability to cope with contrast and backlit subjects is so bad that you invariably end up with a bad shot half the time.

It's OK Misterleoni, I was only pulling your leg. The N86 was awesome in its day but focusing took forever and it used to eat batteries. (There was a bug in the software that Nokia never fixed which meant the camera app wouldn't close down properly.)
