Huawei P8 Lite review

 

Lite in both the name and benefits

Quick camera access ; Good battery life

Over skinned-UI ; No Android Lollipop ; Touchscreen requires too much force ; Earpiece too quiet

At $249 (£199), the P8 Lite leaves more to be desired with comparatively priced smartphones one-upping Huawei.

Обзор смартфона Huawei P8 Lite

 

Упрощенная версия флагманской модели Huawei P8 с менее презентабельными материалами, более слабым процессором, но с симпатичным внешним видом и качественной камерой

Качество связи в моем семпле было не на высоте, иногда до меня не могли дозвониться. Скорее всего, дело в тестовом устройстве. Виброзвонок, несмотря на компактные габариты, мощный: без проблем можно почувствовать звонок в осенней куртке.

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...

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...

Huawei P8 lite review

 

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

The Huawei P8 Lite Review

 

Although many consumers are not familiar with Huawei, they are a company that has been selling smartphones for quite some time now. In the earliest days of the smaller Canadian carriers Huawei was one of the few companies that had smartphones available...

Ultimately, there are no bad phones, just bad prices. The P8 Lite wouldn't be a bad recommendation if it was priced a bit lower and received an update to Lollipop. While I don't know if it would be possible for Huawei to reach a price of $150, I would...

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) review: Though cheap, it lags behind competitors

 

Without a carrier to subsidize their prices, unlocked phones can get expensive. Not so with the Huawei P8 Lite, however. At $250, £180 or AU$300, it's incredibly affordable -- it costs about the same as some high-end devices with a contract. In the US,...
