The camera specifications look all good for competing against the mid-range budget busters. Honor 8 Lite boasts a 12 MP f/2.2 camera on the rear side and an 8 MP f/2.0 camera on the front side. The camera doesn’t support optical image stabilization and 4K videos which might seem to be a drawback of the camera, but we all know Honor 8 had the same issue.
We tried to capture a few shots from the rear camera in the daylight and the images appear to be as good for this budget. The image quality somehow seems close to the Honor 6X camera. The Honor 8 Lite is available for ₹17,999 while the 64 GB variant of Honor 6X with dual cameras is available for ₹15,999. The level of detailing and the color reproduction are satisfactory. Honor 8 Lite could catch up with the competition somehow.
Honor’s Camera interface is loaded with the camera features. It offers features including Pro mode, Panorama, Light Painting, Slow Motion videos, and Time-lapse. Due to the single camera, it lacks the depth of field feature that creates bookeh effect.
