Huawei P Smart review: Overshadowed by its budget-brand stablemate


The Huawei P Smart is a budget 5.65-inch Android handset that's exclusive to Vodafone in the UK. It bears a strong physical and functional resemblance to the Honor 9 Lite , which we recently judged to have set a new benchmark for £200 smartphones. The...

Dual rear cameras ; High-quality metal chassis ; 18:9 aspect ratio screen ; FM radio

No fast charging ; Fewer features and more expensive than its Honor 9 Lite stablemate

Huawei P Smart


Huawei P Smart Review: Huawei's edge-to-edge display toting phone offers some serious power and features for the minimal price-tag.

Great 18:9 display ; Plenty of value ; Slick design

Annoying EMUI software ; No fast-charging ; Some issues with build quality

A fantastic budget smartphone that’s bound to impress.

Vodafone Smart


Can a phone be too cheap for its own good?

Dead cheap ; Capacitive touchscreen

Small, low-res screen ; Low-end processor ; Rubbish camera

Like almost all budget smartphones, the selection of sockets and buttons on its sides features the basics only. There's a volume rocker on the right edge, the power and headphone jack up top and the microUSB charge/transfer socket on its bottom. The...

Huawei P Smart review


The P Smart offers an 18:9 screen for the budget buyer

Smart looks at the right price ; Background blur for both cameras ; Large 18:9 screen

Uses micro USB not USB-C ; Camera poor at night ; Occasional performance blips

The Huawei P Smart is a smart choice if you're after an affordable handset with a big 18:9 display, but you can get better performance and photos elsewhere.

Huawei P Smart review: Price cuts makes the P Smart a budget bargain


The P Smart isn't a bad phone ­– but its sibling, the Honor 9 Lite, offers more and costs less

Impressive 18:9 display ; Good build quality and design ; Inexpensive

Mediocre performance ; No dual-lens selfie camera ; Poor battery life

Unfortunately, Huawei seems to have shot itself in the foot by putting it up against the Honor 9 Lite. That phone – made by Huawei’s own subsidiary company – has a better selfie camera, plus a longer-lasting battery. It’s also arguably prettier, and...

Great all-rounder


I bought this phone a week ago to replace my old samsung s6 and what can I say?! It is a fantastic runner for competition against samsung. At nearly a seventh of the cost of the new S8, this PSmart does all I need and it does it well. It's fast and...
