Which is a better buy between the Honor 10 Lite and Oppo A7?
At a glance, there’s not much of a difference but turn around both devices and the Honor 10 Lite has a much striking appeal due to its gradient hue backing.
In terms of media consumption, the Honor 10 Lite is crisper in detail as it comes at 1080p resolution.
The Honor 10 Lite takes it once again when it comes to performance due to a mid-range tier Kirin 710 as opposed to the entry-level Snapdragon 450 of the Oppo A7.
While the camera is usually the bread and butter of Oppo, unfortunately, it’s a dead tie for the dual main camera setup (at least on paper). It doesn’t favor well too for Oppo A7 with the selfie camera as the Honor 10 Lite wipes the dust with its 24MP sensor.
Perhaps where the Oppo A7 only shines is the large 4230mAh battery that can last a day especially with a lower 720p resolution to display.
Despite the huge lead in battery, the Oppo A7’s Php13,990 price tag is a tough pill to swallow when you have the Honor 10 Lite selling for only Php11,900 along with true midrange specification.
