In 2019, Huawei launched a smartphone called P Smart, which is a sequel to the device of the same name that appeared a year earlier. Even then, the device delighted with excellent technical characteristics and an adequate price. This guaranteed its success among consumers. A year later, the model has been updated. The parameters are even better. All the fashionable features are present. Among them are a teardrop-shaped screen notch, cameras with smart modes, a full range of communication capabilities, including an NFC chip.

The dimensions of the model are the usual by modern standards: 155.2 x 73.4 x 7.95 mm. Its weight is 160 grams. In other words, a happy medium!


Many will agree that the drop-shaped notch on the screen looks beautiful. The visual effect for a bezel-less design is definitely a win-win lately.

Performance and memory

The Huawei P Smart smartphone has got 32 GB of internal storage and 3 GB of RAM.

As a processor, the company's HiSilicon Kirin 710 (4x2.2 GHz Cortex-A73 + 4x1.7 GHz Cortex-A53) with 12nm process technology has been used. Graphics is provided by Mali-G51. P Smart 2019 performs excellently for this class of smartphones.


P Smart 2019 features two main cameras. One is a 13-megapixel and the other is a 2-megapixel. The front camera is a 13-megapixel one. For this price group of devices, these are standard modules.

In good and normal light, the quality of photos is excellent. There are details, color, white balance, etc. In the evening and indoors, the algorithms in the software manage to somewhat clean up the noise. The manufacturer has provided a "Night" mode, which we know from the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro models. In this mode, an overlay of several photos is taken.

The Portrait mode will definitely win you over. In it, the second camera is involved with a blur function in the background. The selfie camera is also at a good level. Of course, this is not a flagship. Don't expect perfection!

The P Smart 2019 is capable of shooting video at up to FullHD 60 FPS resolution.
