The Honor 9i is the latest phone to be launched under Huawei's online-online brand in India. Also known as the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, Nova 2i and Maigmang 6 in other countries, it is Huawei's first phone with not two or three but four on-board cameras.
The 9i/Mate 10 Lite also capitalizes on another trend in the smartphone market - that of taller displays. Featuring an 18:9 aspect ratio display, the Honor 9i is one of the few phones on the market to feature a taller display in its price range.
Being a budget phone, the 9i is a bit underwhelming in terms of pure specs on paper.
However, we did get to spend some time with the device and see how those specs translated to real world performance and how the phone stacks up against the competition.
