Huawei P8 lite Smartphone Review

 

Lite-product? Shortly after the flagship device from Huawei, the P8, we now get the smaller sibling with the addition "lite," which sounds like a slimmed-down version. Not only is the price reduced but also the battery runtime. The device could,...

Dual-SIM feature with LTE, very good voice quality, microSD slot, NFC and Bluetooth, strong WLAN performance, smooth operation, design and quality impression, decent display, good pictures, but

video compression too high, inaccurate GPS, below-average battery runtime, display could be brighter, headset sound is average, only 2.4 GHz WiFi, battery integrated

Buyers of the P8 lite get a solid device that convinces with a smooth operation, good voice quality and a decent screen in practice. The chassis leaves a good and pretty sophisticated impression in general as well, even though the build quality reveals...

Huawei P8 Lite Review

 

Already available in Europe, the sleek and affordable Huawei P8 lite was announced in London on April 15, 2015 alongside its high-end sibling the Huawei P8. The P8 lite has now been officially intr...

The Huawei P8 lite offers an impressive product design for its affordable price point, and the Chinese manufacturer made clever material choices to make the build-quality look high-end. The ultra-thin and elegant body packages good performance that...

The P8 Lite's surprisingly good camera doesn't quite make up for average performance and a disappointing display.

Huawei P8 Lite black

 

Along with its low price, the device has some decent specs and features that make it a respectable mid-tier performer. It has a slim construction, a 13-megapixel camera that takes sharp photos, and its 5-inch display is clear and responsive.

The Huawei P8 Lite has a low price, a lightweight design, a sharp camera and dual-SIM capabilities.

The handset runs the rather dated Android KitKat OS, and its camera settings don't rotate when the phone is held in landscape mode.

The Huawei P8 Lite's affordable unlocked price is compelling, but the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is a much better deal.

Huawei P8 Lite (Unlocked)

 

The Huawei P8 Lite is a classy, well-equipped Android smartphone and an outstanding value, but competition on the unlocked market is fierce.

Thin, light, and solid build. Attractive. Affordable

Heavy-handed Android skin. Disappointing camera performance

The P8 Lite is to the Huawei P8 what Apple's iPhone 5c was to the iPhone 5s. The core experiences are largely comparable, with some performance concessions and design tweaks in the name of affordability. Unlike its fancier sibling, the P8 Lite is fully...

Huawei P8 Lite Review: A Budget Phone With Some Non-Budget Features

 

Huawei isn't necessarily a household name in the US smartphone environment quite yet. They've been making a stronger push to get into the US market recently, but they've been a leader in the Global market for some time, as their #3 global ranking in...

Huawei's Emotion UI isn't obtrusive, provides some nice customization options for an older version of Android. Good price. Nice camera options

I had some issues with reception, and a bump up in display on this phone would be great

For $250 you're really getting a good price to features ratio. The Huawei P8 Lite definitely isn't a flagship-type device, but for a budget friendly phone it will be more than enough for most people.

Huawei P8 Lite Review

 

The war in the 'premium' mid-range segment is ongoing and constantly heating up, as more and more companies are pushing out devices that seem to be vying for notoriety in this new, competitive space. Asus and Alcatel have been victorious in what...

Reasonable value at $249.99 outright ; All-plastic construction feels sturdy ; Camera can produce some nice looking photos ; Good call quality

Poor battery life ; Sluggish performance with even the simple stuff ; Lackluster 1080p video recording quality ; Shrill sounding internal speaker ; Poorly calibrated display

Huawei has been in the US market for quite some time now, slowly infiltrating the space with its line of entry to mid-range phones.

Huawei P8 Lite review

 

The Huawei P8 Lite is a cheaper version of the P8. It's still an attractive phone, but with a plastic case instead of aluminium. It has a lower specification than the P8, with a 5-inch 294ppi display, a more modest 1.2GHz 8-core processor, and a...

The Huawei P8 phone got a 5-star rating from us here at S21, but the cheaper P8 Lite doesn't offer quite the same winning combination of low cost and high spec. It's less of a style icon, with a plastic finish, and thicker than the P8, although still...

Huawei P8 lite Smartphone

 

While Huawei may not be a name you're familiar with in the US, they make some very nice devices. Take the Nexus 6P, it's from Huawei. The P8 lite is a smaller sibling and it combines a smaller form factor with Huawei's Emotion UI Android skin. This...
