Huawei Mate 20 Lite Smartphone Review

 

The fast Phablet. The arrival of the Mate 20 Lite heralds the next generation of Huawei's elite-performance smartphones. Huawei has equipped the device with the brand-new HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC, which integrates an ARM Mali-G51 MP4 among other...

large display ; long battery life ; quick internal storage speeds ; good cameras

Bluetooth 4.2 ; only USB 2.0 ; comparatively slow Wi-Fi performance ; low-contrast display

The Mate 20 Lite is a high-performance smartphone, which impresses with its large display. Performance is on par with other mid-range Android smartphones, but Huawei has brought nothing innovative to the party. In short, the Mate 20 Lite is little more...

Mate 20 Lite: Huawei means business with fresh look and AI

 

The Huawei Mate 20 will likely come out in the autumn, most probably in October. In the meantime, however, the lighter member of the family is already official, after quietly being made available in Poland and Germany on August 27th. But what does it...

Elegant design ; USB Type-C port ; 64 GB internal memory expandable to 256 GB ; AI button in the camera app ; Dual SIM ; NFC ; Battery life

The frame looks detached ; Protruding camera lenses ; Photo quality is low lighting ; Price

So what’s the Huawei Mate 20 Lite all about? It’s a good mid-range phone that offers several new features in comparison to the previous generation, but that maintains good autonomy. It’s more elegant than the Mate 10 Lite and equipped with new...

Huawei Mate 20 Lite Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The first of the Mate 20 line - the Huawei Mate 20 Lite boasts large 6.3-inch display and is the first phone with the company's new Kirin 710 processor.

Big, sharp screen ; Great selfie camera ; Solid rear camera ; Decent real-world battery life

Honor alternatives are better value ; CPU is distinctly mid-range ; Overly aggressive power management

A solid, long-lasting mid-range Android but competition from sister-brand Honor is strong.

Huawei Mate 20 Lite review: A Mate that won't make many friends

 

One look at the Mate 20 Lite's neat and tidy exterior design would suggest it's a great phone. But it's let down by context: the Honor Play is £100

Solid design brings big screen in a small footprint ; Significant battery life ; Dual cameras front and rear

Honor Play is more powerful and £100 less ; Shonky software is a step back for Huawei ; Lite isn't a logical device in the Mate series

Huawei Mate 20 Lite review

 

A starter before the main event - but one that'll leave you hungry

Properly premium look and feel ; Camera copes well for the cash ; An honest-to-goodness headphone jack. In 2018!

Specs a bit meh once you get beyond the gloss ; Huawei's own sub-brand does better for less money

A design step up isn't enough when both rivals and rangemates offer better specs for less. A misstep for the Mate sub-brand

Huawei Mate 20 Lite review

 

A stylish mid-range phablet, but not the best value

Nice sleek design ; Strong 6.3-inch screen ; Decent AI-enhanced camera

AI camera feels a little gimmicky ; Chipset a bit of a drawback ; You can get more for less

The Huawei Mate 20 Lite is a handsome phablet with an attractive and all-encompassing display and some impressive dual-camera tricks. However, its performance is only alright, and there are some tantalizing alternatives for similar or even less money.

Huawei Mate 20 Lite review: Shining Lite

 

The Huawei Mate 20 Lite is an extremely competent all-round performer with cuts mostly in the right places

Looks great ; Excellent camera

Camera AI falls flat ; Battery is disappointing

Still, buyers of the Huawei Mate 20 Lite are unlikely to be disappointed. This is another solid effort and a reminder of just why Huawei is now the second biggest smartphone maker on the planet.

Huawei gives us a sneak peek of the upcoming Mate line with the new Mate 20 Lite, revealed at IFA 2018. Here's what we think after testing it out in person.

Huawei beats its own phone to the punch with the Mate 20 Lite

 

It's unveiled the Lite version of its Mate 20 handset before the actual Mate 20 proper. Go figure.

Huawei Mate 20 Lite Review

 

Following on from the success of Huawei's P20 series, the Chinese smartphone giant made the unusual It's the first phone from the new Mate 20 series – is it worth buying today?

Lovely design and build.

ASUS ZenFone 5 has a slightly better camera configuration.

The Mate 20 Lite is a decent mid-range phone from Huawei. It isn’t going to blow your socks off, but it generally does everything fairly well.
