Huawei P10 Lite Review

It is quite logical that when a flagship device is released on the market, a so-called "lightweight" version will come out after a while. This is exactly the case with the Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Lite. The latter in itself is not bad. The build quality is good, the design is cute, and the specs are satisfactory - metal, glass, 8-core processor, high-resolution screen matrix, decent camera and adequate battery. 


The Huawei P10 Lite has a not quite standard design for the Lite series. If earlier the devices had a more similar look with the flagships, then with the P10 Lite we have more similarities with Honor products. On its back, you'll find the fingerprint scanner. 

The smartphone comes in four color options: white, black, sky blue and gold. 


A 5.2-inch diagonal screen is used in this model. Its physical dimensions are 64 x 116 mm. The bezel is 14 mm at the top and 16 mm at the bottom. On the left and right - 3.5 mm. 

The display resolution is FullHD, i.e. 1080 x 1920 pixels. The aspect ratio is 16:9, density - 423 pixels per inch. The matrix is IPS. 

The maximum brightness of white colour is 450 cd/m2, and of black colour - 0.5 cd/m2. The contrast is 900:1.

Huawei P10 Lite has a vision protection mode that lowers the level of ultraviolet radiation on the screen and thus does not tire the user's eyes when using the smartphone for a long time. 


True to itself, Huawei has put in the Huawei P10 Lite a chip of its own production - HiSilicon Kirin 658: 64 bits, 8 cores - four with a clock speed of 2.36 GHz Cortex-A53 and another four with 1.7 GHz Cortex-A53). The graphics is assigned to the Mali-T830.  

The device behaves well and runs fast. Considering its average price, the result the user gets is more than satisfactory. 

Huawei P10 Lite comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The latter can be expanded with a memory card up to 128 GB. 


The main camera of the Huawei P10 Lite is a 12-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture, while the front camera is an 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0. In almost all conditions, the smartphone's camera does its job well. Strangely enough, it's even on par with the flagship Huawei P10. The front camera will amaze you with quality portrait shots. 

With this smartphone, you will be able to record videos in FullHD resolution at 30 frames per second. 

Autonomous operation 

A non-removable Li-Pol battery with a capacity of 3000 mAh is used in this model. It provides at 3-4 hours of screen glow with automatic brightness adjustment about 12-14 hours of continuous operation. If you choose to watch video continuously, you will need to recharge the battery after 6 hours. Games "melt" the charge in about 5 hours. 

The manufacturer has claimed support for fast charging technology. 


Looking for a comfortable device in a metal body and a glass back? Then the Huawei P10 Lite is the solution you need. This smartphone looks attractive and will also delight you with a bright screen, fast processor, presence of NFC chip and excellent quality cameras. 

The Huawei P10 Lite will appeal to the frugal user with a taste for fancy design.
