Huawei P20 Lite Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Nice finish – only a shame about the ageing processor

Premium, lightweight design ; Great battery life ; Rich feature set

Ageing processor ; Smudge magnet ; Older software

The Huawei P20 Lite has some of the nicest fit and finish in the mid-range space, plus some powerful features that set it apart from the competition – but an older processor means its days are numbered.

Huawei crams impressive features into a $300 phone

 

The Moto G6 has nothing on the P20 Lite's classy looks.

The Huawei P20 Lite looks more expensive than it is, has dual cameras and is very affordable.

Its battery life and performance are just OK.

If $500 feels like too much for a phone, Huawei’s P20 Lite is a solid sub-$300 option.

Huawei Nova 3e review

 

Huawei's mid-range supernova is brilliant and attainable

Modern design ; Premium without the hefty price ; Crisp, expansive display ; Face unlock works

Fierce mid-range competition

If you're looking for that glass-backed, notch-toting aesthetic, then the Huawei Nova 3e offers up many of the premium features, functions and feelings of its contemporaneous peers, but at a severely reduced cost. At the Nova 3e's Australian price...

HUAWEI nova 3e review

 

Huawei ups the ante for a mid-ranged handset.

Notched design ; Good performance ; Good Pricing

Notched design ; Camera struggles in low-light

Huawei pushes boundaries of what mid-end phones can offer with the nova 3e offering a futuristic design and specs that keep it running smoothly.

Huawei Nova 3e: Full, in-depth review

 

Huawei have packed a ton of value into the Nova 3e. However, they're not the only brand packing a lot of value into that $200-$400 space anymore - and that leaves the Nova 3e outgunned on a few choice fronts.

Great value ; Surprisingly adept camera

Uneven performance ; Weak speaker

Huawei P20 Lite: Good-looking smartphone with an average camera and bloated software

 

With more manufacturers paying attention to the mid-range with a focus on better performance, the Huawei P20 Lite falls short when it comes to just that.

While the Huawei P20 Lite looks attractive, it’s the stuff on the inside, which holds it back. A weak SoC coupled with bloated software feels more of a budget smartphone experience like on the Honor 9 Lite.

Huawei P20 Lite Smartphone Review

 

Mid-range P20 The Huawei P20 Lite is overshadowed by its big brothers and its competition is also well positioned at this price-performance ratio. Our review shows that buyers of this mid-range smartphone receive a good device regardless.

16+2 MP dual-camera ; 16 MP front camera ; fast internal storage ; appealing design ; nearly borderless display

battery life unnecessarily short ; unbalanced speakers ; moderate benchmark results

The Huawei P20 Lite presents itself as a solid mid-range smartphone in our Review, but it is not able to differentiate itself from its competition in terms of performance. The 16 MP dual-camera takes good pictures and the system as a whole runs...

Huawei P20 Lite Review: Easy on the wallet

 

The Huawei P20 Lite is a more budget-friendly version of the standard P20 flagship phone, offering stripped-back specs and a couple of surprise bonus features. Here's our full Huawei P20 Lite review.

Funky design ; Face unlock ; Expandable storage

Seen it all before ; Cheaper Honors offer a similar experience

Although the P20 Lite sports a similar look to the fully-fledged P20 flagship, there are tons of differences between the two. The display isn’t as customisable, the dual-lens camera lacks that wow factor and battery life isn’t quite as strong..

Huawei P20 Lite

 

The P20 Lite is Huawei's latest mid-range smartphone. It means you can get the design and some of the specs from the impressive flagship phones at a much more budget friendly price of £329.

Huawei P20 Lite Review

 

The Huawei P20 Lite has a lot of flagship features, including a great screen, a high-end build and a dual-lens camera, but some rivals offer similar or more and it feels a bit underpowered.

The Huawei P20 Lite is a decent distillation of many of the core Huawei P20 features. It lacks for power, but packs in an impressive screen and dual-lens camera, alongside a fairly high-end build and multiple biometric security options.
