2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Gorgeous design - the iridescent, colour gradient finish is stunning - looks just as good as it's senior (and much more expensive) cousin, the P30 Pro - in fact, this is one of the most expensive/premium looking phones you can get at the price
  • Fantastic glass and metal build
  • The 3D curved glass rear is comfortable to hold
  • Decent fingerprint sensor on the back
  • Speedy face unlock
  • Nice, modern display, with a water-drop notch and skinny bezels - and bright enough for good sunlight legibility
  • EMUI is fast, theme-able, and has lots of custom features
  • Snappy performance with a Kirin 710 processor (similar to Snapdragon 660) - everything from day-to-day use to games is smooth
  • Very good triple camera setup at the rear - the main camera is a massive 48-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/1.8, which is reinforced by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensing unit which helps to capture more efficient blurred-background portrait photos
  • The quality of images is rather good - images are filled with detail, colours are accurately represented, and there doesn’t seem to be too much visual noise when used in low-light environments
  • Portrait mode is very good too
  • Decent video recording quality too
  • Decent 24MP selfie camera too
  • Fast charging support
  • In its own right, the P30 Lite is a very good phone, with 2 main strengths: a lavish design, and a good triple camera setup

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • As is often the case with these lavish-looking, glossy slabs of aluminium, the phone does pick up smudges rather easily
  • Having said that, the performance is definitely a couple of notches below it's main competition, the Poco F1 with the flagship Snapdragon 845 (which of course blows every other phone out of the water in this price bracket)
  • Battery life is decent with a 3340mAh battery - the phone will last you the day with moderate use - but it could have been better - especially given the competition
  • It will however face tough competition from the Poco F1 (flagship Snapdragon 845), and Nokia 8.1 (simple stock Android UI), in this price bracket
