Huawei P smart Review

The Huawei P Smart is distinguished from its predecessor by its elongated, high-resolution FullView screen with a 5.65-inch diagonal. The bezels around its display are satisfyingly thin. Moreover, the device comes with an upgraded camera, hardware and software platform. 


This Huawei model is available in the market in several colors - black, dark blue and light "gold". Its body is metallic, with only a few minor plastic details at the top and bottom. The front panel is finished in black for the dark models and white for the gold. 

The touchscreen takes up a large part of the front panel. There you will also see the camera lens and the Huawei lettering. On the back is the fingerprint scanner, above it the lenses of the main camera protrude slightly. Next to them is the flash. 

Huawei P Smart is quality made, has no sharp edges and is comfortable to use. With his thumb, the user can easily reach the buttons on the screen, as well as the physical lock button. 


The Huawei P Smart houses an IPS matrix protected by glass with a quality oleophobic coating. The resolution is 1080×2160 pixels (FullHD+) at a diagonal of 5.65 inches. The pixel density per inch is 427. The aspect ratio is 18:9. 

The interface allows in the settings to downgrade the resolution to HD+ to improve the smartphone's performance and charge saving. 

The Huawei P Smart's display is bright, it has an auto adjust that works fast. You can adjust the screen temperature if you wish. Good news is the presence of a blue light filter, its intensity, etc. The user can comfortably use Huawei P Smart both in the dark and outdoors on a sunny day. 


Huawei P Smart is based on a power-efficient 8-core Kirin 659 processor with a maximum clock speed of 2.36 GHz. We know it from models like the Honor 7X and Huawei Nova 2. It's coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, which you can increase if needed using a microSD memory card. 

The fingerprint scanner works fast. NFC is supported. The interface is responsive, with Facebook-type apps behaving normally. There's no slowing down of the device. 


The smartphone works with dual main cameras - the main module is a 13-megapixel one and the auxiliary is a 2-megapixel one. The latter is used only for creating photos with imitation wide-open aperture and portrait mode. 

Huawei has not provided optical stabilization. In a good light level, the user can count on not bad photos. In the dark and indoors, the photos are characterized by noise. The camera works quite fast in each mode. 

The front camera is 8-megapixel. 

Autonomous operation

There is a 3000 mAh battery in the smartphone. The manufacturer has provided a proprietary power-saving technology that guarantees a full day of autonomous operation. No fast charging technology is provided.


Huawei has prepared a worthy replacement for the popular P8 lite 2017. For about a low price, you can get a cute and fast smartphone with dual cameras, an excellent elongated display and a fresh operating system. 

The Huawei P Smart presents itself as smart, elegant and fast, even fashionable. 


  • Excellent screen;
  • Fast fingerprint scanner;
  • Quality daytime photos.
