For most people out there, the Honor 10 Lite easily stands out with its real glass finish combined with gradient hue design. Up front, both are thin in bezels to provide a premium look.

When it comes to performance, both SoCs are based on the 12nm process allowing for better efficiency. We still have to test it out as to how each compares in real-world usage.

Moving to the camera, it’s a toss-up for the dual main camera setup of each as well as the selfie cameras — the main highlight of both phones — with 25MP for the Realme U1 and 24MP for the Honor 10 Lite.

Battery-wise, you might have slightly better runtime on the Realme U1 with its slightly larger 3500mAh battery as opposed to the 3400mAh of the Honor 10 Lite.

For the 4GB/64GB, both phones are priced at Php11,990. Whichever of the two you get, it’s a good daily driver overall. But if the budget is too tight, the 3GB/32GB of the Realme U1 is a compelling buy especially when the majority of your time is spent taking selfies.
