2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Premium, good looking design, with nice rounded corners, and a glass back
  • Light-weight at just 145g
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint scanner at the back
  • Supports facial recognition too (and it works well)
  • Good, tall, 5.84 inch 'bezel-less' display with a notch at the top
  • EMUI is now one of the better Android skins around, and has a lot of useful customizations
  • Good, solid performance similar to phones with the Snapdragon 625 processors - both regular use and casual games will be smooth and lag-free
  • Good set of dual rear cameras, with a nice bokeh effect, and bright colors (especially in daylight)
  • The front camera has a 16Mp sensor and is pretty good too
  • The P20 Lite has a headphone jack (unlike its senior cousin, the P20 Pro) which is always appreciated
