Huawei Mate 10 Lite Review

The trend in modern phones is to provide a large enough screen in a relatively small corpus. This feature applies not only to the flagship models, but also to some cheaper ones, such as the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, which is one of the pioneers in this field.


The Huawei Mate 10 Lite impresses with its screen size - 5.9-inch. Huawei has achieved this by displaying a 2:1 aspect ratio. Its physical dimensions are similar to the OnePlus 5 (5.5-inch) screen but with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Due to its rounded edges, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite is comfortable in the palm of your hand. Its rear panel is made of sturdy aluminum, and the volume and power buttons (on/off) are positioned to the right.


Like the flagship models, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite display occupies much of the front panel. The 5.9-inch screen has a resolution of  2160 x 1080 Full HD +, 18:9 aspect ratio. The image is not as bright as with AMOLED technology, but it is clear and bright enough. The maximum brightness reaches about 500 nits, which allows the user to easily read information from the screen of the phone even in sunny weather.


Huawei Mate 10 Lite runs smoothly, applications open quickly. Under its corpus is an 8-core Huawei processor - Kirin 659 with four Cortex-A53 2.36 GHz + 4 Cortex-A53 1.7GHz cores) combined with 4 GB of RAM. This is a mid-range processor with similar Snapdragon 625 performance.

The Mate 10 Lite comes with 64GB of internal storage, with actual user availability of around 48GB. There is enough memory for this price range. It can also be expanded with a hybrid SIM card slot.


The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has a dual rear and front camera. It's on the panel back the duo 16 MP + 2 MP (f /2.2) and the front - 13 MP + 2 MP (f /2.0). In either case, the optional camera is used to take selfies and achieve a bokeh effect. This function works normally in good light.

The camera application works with standard settings - timer, network, smile capture, mute option, object tracking and more.

Video quality with the Huawei Mate 10 Lite is at the level of this class of devices. The videos have a bit less detail. The backlight is blurred.

Battery life

This Huawei smartphone comes with a 3340mAh battery. With moderate use, the device provides all-day battery life. A more intense mode will drain the battery faster. Recharging up to 100% takes about 2.5 hours.


The Huawei Mate 10 Lite is really an interesting phone. It looks cute, runs smoothly and helps with different functions in daily use. Using the settings in the camera app, the user can achieve good daylight shots. Selfies are worthy of posting on social networks. The fingerprint scanner is fast and accurate. The video is not of excellent quality. The manufacturer has not provided wireless charging technology, there is no protection against water and moisture. Don't expect NFC. However, the Mate 10 Lite comes with plenty of memory!
