Huawei P8 Lite review

 Review: April 2016  
 

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: 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 smaller battery. The camera is good, with a 13 megapixel sensor, and capable of capturing 1080p HD video.

Best buy: Huawei P8 Lite from iD Mobile (£0.00)



 

Review

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 slim and good-looking compared with most phones in this price range. It's available in a choice of Black, White, or Gold.

Its capabilities have been significantly scaled back, with a smaller HD display, a less capable 1.2GHz Kirin 620 processor, and a smaller battery. The processor is fast enough to get the job done without too much lag, but it lacks the responsiveness of the P8. It still comes with 16GB of memory however, plus the ability to upgrade this by adding a microSD memory card. The camera performs well too.

The P8 Lite is good value at around the £150 mark on Pay as you Go, but there are other choices that you should consider at this price point - Huawei's own Honor 5X, and Samsung's Galaxy A3 or Samsung J5 models.
