Reviews for the Huawei Nova Lite

Huawei Nova Lite: NZ$400 Android alternative
Source: Bill Bennett English
I was pleasantly surprised by the Nova Lite. It may not have all the features of a premium Android, but all the essentials are here. If you are on a tight budget, or have better things to do with your money, this is a good choice. It would be a good phone to buy a teenager or if you buy phones for your employees.

ARM Mali-T830 MP2: Integrated graphics card for smartphones and tablets with two clusters (MP2) supporting OpenGL ES 3.2. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Kirin 655: ARM-based octa-core-SoC (8x ARM Cortex-A83 cores with 4x max 1.7 power saving cores and 4x max 2.1 GHz performance cores).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

Huawei: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. is a Chinese company founded in 1987 with focus on telecommunications hardware and 170000 employees. In the first quarter of 2016, Huawei had a market share of 8.2% in the smartphone market, making it the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Compared to the same quarter of 2015, Huawei increased its market share by more than 58%.
In 2014, Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. The name Huawei is usually not listed for these products.
There are a lot of reviews on Huawei phones with slightly above average ratings (as of 2016).
76%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
