Huawei P smart 2021 Review

Huawei P Smart 2021 is a mid-range phone that will attract your attention with its large screen, quality camera and a bunch of popular features. In addition, we must mention the large battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh, internal memory - 128 GB, and a mini headphone jack. Against this background, the absence of Google services does not seem obvious.

Design

This Huawei model visually bears the features of many smartphones that came on the market in 2020. It has a large screen with a minimum of thick frames, the back of the device is mirrored with beveled corners, and in the corner we see a massive block with four lenses. It can be said that this is a classic formula for a smartphone.

However, the back of the Huawei P Smart 2021 is not made of glass, although it may seem so at first glance. The material used is plastic. You will be convinced of this when you touch it. The ends are also plastic. Another important element in the device is the fingerprint scanner, which is positioned on the side. Recently, scanners on the back of smartphones are no longer fashionable. In the Huawei P Smart 2021 it is built into a large, flat and slightly protruding button in the body.

Display

Huawei has offered a display with an IPS matrix with a diagonal of 6.67 inches and a resolution of Full HD + (2400 x 1080 pixels). It is similar to the one we know in other models already known on the market - for example POCO X3 NFC and others. The pixel density is not high, but it is enough to enjoy a good picture. Viewing angles are wide. The display has an oleophobic coating and a factory protective layer. It quickly covers with scratches, but fully performs its function in the first few months.

In the Huawei P Smart 2021 you get the typical screen settings, including a dark theme, you can change the font and resolution, adjust the color rendering and adjust the color temperature.

Productivity

This Huawei smartphone works with a simplified version of the HiSilicon Kirin 710 platform - Kirin 710A, which is implemented in a 14-nm process. It consists of four ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. The graphics are loaded with ARM Mali-G51 MP4. There is also a separate processor that deals with operations that are related to machine learning.

Huawei P Smart 2021 is equipped with 4 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.1 flash. There is a separate microSD memory card slot.

Cameras

The smartphone will delight you with its four cameras. Two of them are responsible for shooting from two different angles of view. The third is intended for macro photography, and the fourth is a sensor that measures the depth of the frame to create a bokeh effect.

The main camera of the Huawei P Smart 2021 is a 48-megapixel camera with a Quad Bayer sensor and a lens with a brightness of ƒ/1.8. It is equipped with phase autofocus and an equivalent focal length of 28 mm. The second camera is responsible for the extended viewing angle. It is an 8-megapixel module with a lens with a brightness of ƒ/2.4. There is no autofocus here.

By default, the camera shoots with a resolution of 12 MP, but if you want you can change it to 48-megapixel mode. The third camera is responsible for macro photography. In enough light, your shots will look pretty good. The fourth camera of Huawei P Smart 2021 is a sensor that comes into use in portrait shooting mode. The background blur works well. There are company filters for extra entertainment.

Autonomous work

In Huawei P Smart 2021, as already mentioned, you get a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. Against the background of the simplified hardware platform, it fails to give the model an advantage over direct competitors in the market. However, the smartphone will offer you long enough work before you need to recharge.

Conclusion

The lack of Google services provoked Huawei to look for ways to compensate for this. It can be said that for now it is achieving its goal by offering interesting solutions for consumers. Huawei P Smart 2021 is a combination of a large screen, a large battery, serious camera capabilities and a decent price.

Pros:

  • Large and well-tuned screen
  • Normal battery life and relatively fast charging
  • Excellent quality of photos during the day and night
  • Large internal storage
  • Separate memory card slot
  • Mini jack
  • NFC support

Cons:

  • Google services are missing
  • Large device size
  • There is something to be desired when shooting videos
