2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 8 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • 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
  • As is often the case with these lavish-looking, glossy slabs of aluminium, the phone does pick up smudges rather easily

Display

  • Nice, modern display, with a water-drop notch and skinny bezels - and bright enough for good sunlight legibility

Software

  • EMUI is fast, theme-able, and has lots of custom features

Performance

  • Snappy performance with a Kirin 710 processor (similar to Snapdragon 660) - everything from day-to-day use to games is smooth
  • 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)

Camera

  • 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

Battery

  • Fast charging support
  • 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

Verdict

  • 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
  • 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
