Model: The Huawei P Smart Plus (2018) is a new mid-range smartphone from Huawei. In some markets, it’s known as Nova 3i. Equipped with Kirin 710 processor, facial recognition or camera AI, Huawei has reissued its flagship phone in the mid-range to compete against other brands, especially against Xiaomi, who stomps in this segment. With this P Smart Plus, Huawei repeats the successful design, and it is a success. Although it is also available in black and white, without a doubt the star of the party is the model with the gradient. Turning it around, the other key detail is striking, which is its notch or eyebrow. This notch is in virtually all phones that have facial recognition, as is the case. It is a beautiful mobile, which fits perfectly in one hand and weighs relatively little at 169 grams. The design is one of its strengths without a doubt. The 6.3-inch FHD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is such a beauty to behold, it has a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and 409 pixels per inch density. It has 85 % NTSC, 19:9 aspect ratio and stretches up to 82.48 % screen-to-body ratio. The viewing angles are good, as is the brightness. It looks perfectly outdoors and in full sunlight.
The phone has a dual camera. The main module has a resolution of 16 megapixels and f/2.2 aperture, and the second one is 2 megapixels. The second module is needed to create a bokeh effect. The camera also relies heavily on AI. The front camera main module is at 24 megapixels (f/2.0) and the second at 2 megapixels. The video quality is 1080p. The selfie camera is decent, with nice tonal improvements and filters. With the selfies camera, users can also activate the AR Lens, which allows users to add effects in real time to the photos and even create 3D emojis. Powering up the device is the new HiSilicon Kirin 710 chip from Huawei which was built on a 12 nm process technology. It has an octa-core processor clocking at 2.2 GHz. The ARM Mali-G51 MP4 graphics processor comes with four cores and clocks 767 MHz. Multitasking shouldn't be a problem since there's 4GB of RAM space available to handle all apps. Users also get 64 GB storage space ready to accommodate all files and apps. The P Smart Plus runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Emotion 8.2 UI. The headphone jack is present, and that's good news. It is located in the lower area next to the microUSB connector and speaker. As a conclusion, the Huawei P Smart Plus is a smartphone with excellent performance, worthy of the best mid-range. It also combines pretty good design and autonomy of more than a day.

ARM Mali-G51 MP4: Integrated mid range graphics card with 4 clusters. Beware the results in the Mate 20 Lite, that detects benchmarks and boosts the performance.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Kirin 710: ARM based octa-core SoC containing four Cortex-A73 cores for performance tasks (up to 2.2 GHz) and four Cortex-A53 cores (up to 1.7 GHz) to save power. Furthermore, the SoC integrates an LTE radio (600 MBps down) and a ARM Mali-G51MP4 GPU. The SoC is manufactured at TSMC in 12nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
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.
