SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition)

honor 9 Lite

Of the two honor smartphones on this list, the honor 9 Lite is the more selfie-centric one because it has a 13MP + 2MP dual camera system in both the front and back of the smartphone. This allows you to take portrait mode photos and get blurry backgrounds to make your selfies pop.

It is also the more affordable honor handset but you do get less smartphone. Its screen, for example, is smaller, measuring just 5.65 inches but it still pushes a resolution of Full HD+, which is nice. The honor 9 Lite is also powered by a Kirin 659 processor, but it gets just 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. You’re also getting a smaller 3,000 mAh battery similar to the Huawei Nova 2 Lite.

UPDATE: Good news! We have updated and published a brand new Best smartphones under RM1,200 guide! It includes the new devices that have launched since this guide was published as well as the new discounted prices thanks to zero-rated GST. You can check it out here.
