The processor has 4GB of Low-Power DDR3 RAM to operate and you get 64GB of storage by default. The internal storage can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card slot if the default storage size isn’t adequate for your needs.

Battery

The Honor 8 Lite packs a 3000mAh battery without fast charging technology. The smartphone would last for more than half a day with this battery capacity, but without fast charge, you might need to charge it for about two hours to get it to 100% from ground zero.
