2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 12+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Premium, good looking design, with nice rounded corners, and a glass back
  • Light-weight at just 145g
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint scanner at the back

Display

  • Good, tall, 5.84 inch 'bezel-less' display with a notch at the top

Software

  • EMUI is now one of the better Android skins around, and has a lot of useful customizations
  • EMUI is getting better with time, but is still a little cluttered

Performance

  • Decent performance similar to phones with the Snapdragon 625 processors - both regular use and casual games will be smooth and lag-free
  • While performance is decent for most use cases, there are many better performing phones in this price bracket

Camera

  • Good set of dual rear cameras, with a nice bokeh effect, and bright colors (especially in daylight) - comparable to the other very good camera phone in this price bracket, the Redmi Note 5 Pro
  • The front camera has a 16Mp sensor and is pretty good too

Audio

  • Average loudspeaker

Battery

  • Battery life is average - with light to medium use, you will found yourself reaching for the charger by 7-8pm each day
  • Although the phone does theoretically support quick charging, a quick charging adapter is not included with the phone (will have to be purchased separately)

More

  • Supports facial recognition too (and it works well)
  • On the whole, while the P20 Lite is a good looking phone with a good display and good cameras, it's let down by performance and battery to some extent - it will find it difficult to compete on value with the likes of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max M1 Pro, Honor 7X, and Honor 9i

  3. If you want a modern-looking phone with a great display, the Huawei P20 Lite is a good choice....However,the Redmi Note 5 Pro is hard to beat as an all-rounder, and costs quite a bit less

  7. The Huawei P20 Lite has some of the nicest fit and finish in the mid-range space, plus some powerful features that set it apart from the competition – but an older processor means its days are numbered
