Honor is perhaps most well known for its lineup of low-cost, high-end smartphones, and that’s not changing any time soon.
At CES 2018, Honor announced that it would bring the Honor 7X, one of the best inexpensive Android phones out there, to the United States for just $199.99. With a big 5.93-inch, 18:9 display, a powerful Kirin 659 SoC, and a long-lasting 3,340 mAh battery, the 7X certainly gives other budget-friendly phones a run for their money.
The company also revealed that it would bring the Honor View 10 (aka Honor V10) to the U.S. sometime in 2018. Pricing for that region has not been announced yet, but we’re expecting it to launch for under $500. For less than five Benjamins, you’re getting a 5.99-inch, 18:9 display, the latest Kirin 970 chipset, 4/6 GB of RAM, and 64/128 GB of storage. This will be the OnePlus 5T’s biggest competitor in the States.
Before the View 10 arrived, the Honor 9 was the new hotness. One of the prettiest phones the company has ever made, the Honor 9 offers solid performance, impressive dual cameras, and plenty of extras like an IR blaster and expandable storage. The Honor 9 isn’t officially available in the U.S., though you can grab one from an Amazon seller for $469.99. It’s also available in the U.K. for £349.99. For that price, we think the 9 is still an incredible value.
Finally, we have the Honor 9 Lite. Announced in December 2017, this device offers a familiar design, a Full HD+ 18:9 display, and dual cameras at a very affordable price point. This one isn’t making its way to the U.S. either, but it is quite affordable elsewhere. The Honor 9 Lite with 3 GB of RAM/32 GB of storage is priced at ₹10,999 ($172), while the 4 GB/64 GB variant is priced at ₹14,999 ($235).
So, which one do you think offers the best bang for your buck? We’d have to say the Honor 7X wins by a landslide. What about you? Cast your vote in the poll below, and speak up in the comments if there’s anything you’d like to add. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!
