HONOR 90 Lite 5G Unboxing and First Impressions: A Budget-Friendly Camera Powerhouse

In a world where smartphone users are constantly on the lookout for devices that offer exceptional camera capabilities without breaking the bank, HONOR steps up to the plate with its latest release, the HONOR 90 Lite 5G. With a staggering 100MP primary camera, this smartphone promises to deliver stunning photography experiences while remaining budget-conscious. Let's dive into our first impressions and unboxing experience to see what this device has to offer.

Unboxing Experience of the HONOR 90 Lite 5G

The HONOR 90 Lite 5G arrives in a sleek and eco-friendly plastic casing that immediately sets a tone of sophistication, much like its big brother, the HONOR 90 5G. As you unbox this device, you'll find that HONOR has thoughtfully included all that you can think of as necessities to enjoy this device.

You get the phone itself up top, then the Accessory Box beneath the smartphone,which houses your essentials like:

  • SIM Ejector Tool
  • Silicone Case: A complimentary silicone case to protect your new device.
  • User Manuals and Documentation: Detailed guides to help you get started quickly and make the most of your HONOR 90 Lite 5G.
  • USB-A to USB-C Cable
  • HONOR SuperCharge Wall Charger
  • And a very convenient 3.5mm Audio Jack to Type-C Adapter: For those like me who prefer wired headphones, HONOR has you covered.

First Impressions on the HONOR 90 Lite 5G

The HONOR 90 Lite 5G immediately impresses with its design and build quality. Its elegant form factor and premium feel make it a device you'd be proud to show off. I personally love the matte feel on the sides as well as the design at the back, as it holds off fingerprints(a definite win for me). 

If you would look at it from the front and side, you can see traces of the minimalist aesthetic that we all love with recent iPhone releases, but without the bulk as it stands at a comfortable and slender build, measuring just 7.48mm thick and weighing a mere 179g. 

The rear camera module is positioned in the upper left corner. It features a unique Dual Ring Camera Design that houses the triple camera configuration. Below, you'll notice the "100MP" text, and nearby, the flash is accompanied by the "ULTRA CAMERA" insignia. Simultaneously, the brand logo is elegantly displayed in the lower left corner, while regulatory information is found at the lower right.

Personally, I would have loved it if it was just the brand logo in the lower left corner, and everything else written to be not there. But that's just the minimalist in me talking.

The smartphone's eco-friendly packaging also aligns with HONOR's commitment to sustainability, which is a nice touch for environmentally-conscious consumers.

Display and TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification

As you power on the device, you're greeted by a vibrant and expansive 6.7-inch LTPS LCD display. The Full HD+ resolution, coupled with a 90Hz refresh rate, promises a visually pleasing and smooth user experience. The TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification is a nod to the device's focus on user comfort and eye protection.

Under the hood, the MediaTek Dimensity 6020 5G processor, along with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, sets the stage for a powerful performance. Whether you're multitasking or gaming, the HONOR 90 Lite 5G seems poised to handle it all with ease.

100 MP Ultra Camera

The real star of the show, of course, is the 100MP primary camera. With a wide range of features, including AI enhancements and multi-video recording, this device is tailor-made for photography enthusiasts who demand exceptional photo quality. The front 16MP selfie camera is no slouch either and promises to deliver stunning self-portraits.

Below are some sample shots:

With a 4500mAh Super Battery and a 22.5W SuperCharge Wall charger, this model offers a battery capacity of around 2 days without charging for me. It features WiFi 5 and Dual 5G capabilities, running on MagicOS 7.1 based on Android 13.
