Reviews for the Huawei P30 Lite

The best-selling smartphone as of Q3/2018 gets yet another reincarnation. Huawei dubs the P30 Lite a photography masterpiece featuring a "revolutionary" triple-camera. Find out whether or not this 48 MP camera is capable of redefining mid-range smartphone photography in our extensive Huawei P30 Lite review.
65% Huawei P30 Lite (2019) review

The Huawei P30 Lite is a basically competent mid-tier offering with a somewhat-powerful triple-lens camera and above-average battery life. However, the design doesn’t do much to endear itself and the software side of the equation isn’t much better. If you’re looking to settle for a pretty cheap phone that can do the basic things you expect a phone to be able to do, it’ll be a good fit. If you’re looking for the best cheap phone, I’m a little more hesitant to recommend it. There are many superior options out there.

OK, the bad points. The fingerprint-magnet screen, the LCD display, the lack of NFC. These are going to be my major concerns. However, when I say, “major”, for sub-£270 they’re really not that major. The wide-angle shots I took on this weer impressive, as were the normal shots. The phone design itself, the processor, the storage, the addition of two SIM slots (or one slot and a microSD card) ticked some big boxes for me and, I have to say, Huawei have done it again – a very well-made phone which features a lot of kit for the budget.

Source: Mobile Syrup English
Sure maybe it’s missing Huawei's zoom lens or wireless charging, but am I really willing to pay over $500 more dollars for features like that when the P30 Lite can get me through each day without issue? If you’re looking to buy a new phone this summer consider the P30 Lite because while it may not be cutting edge, it doesn't have a ton of issues holding it back either.

Huawei P30 Lite Long-term Review: Still The Prettiest Mid-range You Can Get Today
Source: Unbox English
Huawei will still be able to provide updates to the phone if the Americans totally cut off access to Google, and the P30 Lite will continue to have access to all essential apps like Google Play, Facebook and others throughout its life.

The Huawei P30 Lite is a good phone. It looks striking, has a decent screen and the camera is versatile too. With middling power though, and good, but not great battery life, all combined with a lofty price tag, it isn’t quite a no-brainer.

Huawei P30 Lite review
Source: PC Advisor English
Huawei has done a decent job of retaining the attractive design and excellent camera performance of the P30 flagships into a much more affordable phone. On that basis, the P30 Lite is a decent buy. However, when you compare to some similarly priced rivals there are better options to choose from. We're disappointed by the P30 Lite's lacklustre battery life and laggy performance, which should really be a thing of the past. The display isn't as good as rivals either. So we'd recommend checking out the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 and Google Pixel 3a as more well-rounded devices. Or even go cheaper with the Motorola One Vision or Honor 20 Lite.

If you want class and some high-end surface thrills at a sensible price, the Huawei P30 Lite is one of the best phones you can buy. I enjoyed using it a lot. It’s not too big, feels great and looks like a cutting-edge phone.

The Huawei P30 Lite has some of the flagship P30 magic, but those little sparkles are not enough to light up the fire of excitement. It has a good screen, but it's not an OLED. There is a triple-camera on the back, but it's not even close to what the P30's and the Pro's can do. The lack of excitement doesn't make the P30 Lite a bad phone, on the contrary - it has a lot going on, including game-ready hardware. But it far from being competitive until its price goes down. Not that the Lite is expensive, but there are cheaper phones that are simply better.

The P30 Lite does a great job of distilling the bits we loved about the P30 and making them available at a more manageable price. Now that flagship phones are regularly shattering the £1000 mark, cut-price versions like this are only going to get more popular. Still, it does feel a bit like this is a phone riding on the coattails of a more in-demand bigger brother - were it called something different there's every chance Huawei would have charged less for it.

The P30 Lite sheds a lot of what makes its higher-end siblings stand out but manages to deliver premium design and a versatile triple camera setup on a budget. Middling battery and chipset aside, Huawei might have another budget hit on their hands.

Huawei P30 Lite Review: Meet Huawei’s New Mid-Range Champion
Source: Unbox English
Huawei’s P30 Lite slots neatly into the mid-range category with its Php 16,990 price point. While it’s not as fast as some of its rivals in the same category, the smartphone’s triple cameras are good enough for people looking to dabble in mobile photography. We like the inclusion of the 3.5mm jack, as well as the USB Type-C port and roomy 128GB storage, things that usually aren’t present in the offerings of other brands in the same price segment.

While the P30 Lite is pretty much just the Huawei Nova 4e under a different name, it’s still worthy of being tagged as the affordable device under the P30 line-up. The device has an excellent design and quite a decent performance. If you aren’t seriously into smartphone photography but still want something that offers quality photos, you might want to take a look at this device. The Huawei P30 Lite is priced at PHP 16,990.

This new mid-range phone from Huawei has many of the same design cues as its more expensive brothers, though gets by without the power of Leica’s branding. Is this your new mid-range phone?

Comment

Model: Following the current trend of releasing a “lite” version of flagships, Huawei has released its P30 Lite the same time as the other two from the P30 series. Despite being cheaper, the phone looks pretty much the same as its two other bigger brothers. It is also thinner at just 7.4 mm and lighter at 159 grams. This is mainly due to its mostly plastic construction as opposed to the aluminium body on the other two. The screen is a 6.15-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,312 pixels, bringing the pixel count to 415 pixels per inch. The bezels are reduced as much as possible and a water drop notch is added to achieve this. This brings the screen-to-body ratio to 84.2 percent; pretty high for a phone in this price range but not as good as the P30 Pro at 88.6 %. Despite the LCD panel, the display still looks stunning and displays images with sharp and vibrant colors. However, there are some complaints about the narrow viewing angles and color shifting when the phone is viewed from different angles. Unlike its bigger brothers, it is shipped with Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 which is based on Android 9.0 (pie). The other two are shipped with EMUI 9.1. As for the hardware, the P30 Lite features a mid-range Kirin 710 octa-core processor coupled with a Mali-G51 MP4 graphics unit. It can be obtained with 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. Huawei have gone for the traditional micro SD slot to expand the memory of this phone compared to the Nano Memory slot on the P30 and P30 Pro.

The P30 Lite gets a triple camera setup for its main, rear camera. The first is a 48 MP f/1.8 wide angle camera, the second is an 8 MP ultrawide camera and the third is a 2 MP f/2.4. depth sensor for taking better portraits. Combining all three gives very good images with lots of details. However, on the portrait side, things can improve as the software tends to fail in drawing out the background clearly. This can be improved with a software update. Elsewhere, it does quite well for a phone in this price range. It can’t match the P30s Leica optics and 5x optical zoom though. On the front, there is a massive 32 MP selfie camera. Sadly both rear and front cameras can record videos at only Full HD resolution. The Lite version has also been skimped in the details. The Bluetooth version is the older 4.2 compared to the 5.0 on the P30 and P30 Pro. It also lacks the infrared port that is available on the Pro and the charging port is a 2.0 Type-C compared to the 3.1 on the other two. The fingerprint scanner is mounted at the back of the phone and there is no fancy under-display scanner here. The P30 Lite is shipped with a 3,340 mAh battery capable of fast charging at a slower 18 W compared to the 40W unit in the other two, which can give up to 70 % of the battery life in just 30 minutes. The P30 Lite is one of the rare flagships with a 3.5 mm earphone jack. It comes in 3 colors, which are Peacock Blue, Midnight Black and the series standard Pearl White, which is the most unique one. The P30 Lite might lack some of the latest and best specs available in the smartphone industry but for less than half the price of the regular P30, this phone is a definite bang for buck.
