Huawei P40 Lite 5G Smartphone Review: 5G for 400 Euros (~$469)

P40 Lite with IPS and quad-camera setup. With the P40 Lite 5G, Huawei introduces something more than only another sprout of the P40 Lite into the market. The "5G" designation only marks one of the novelties. Our test will show what else distinguishes the P40 Lite 5G from its sibling models.

Huawei P40 Lite 5G

Even if 5G is only spreading at a snail's pace in Germany, smartphone manufacturers have already pushed this technology into the more affordable price segments. Since Huawei naturally also wants to be part of the early adopters, the Chinese manufacturer is offering the 5G-capable P40 Lite 5G, which is available for about 400 Euros (~$469). This will not only get you the newest mobile communication standard but also a quad-camera system.

With this and more features, the Huawei P40 Lite 5G has to face the comparison devices listed below in our test. In addition to the listed devices, you can also add more devices from our database to the comparison underneath each segment.

Case - Three colors for the P40 Lite 5G

Huawei has manufactured the P40 Lite 5G with a metal frame and a back made of plastic. In terms of colors, "Midnight Black," "Space Silver," and "Crush Green" are available. With a 6.5-inch display diagonal, the size turned out slightly larger than that of the regular Huawei P40 Lite, and at 189 grams (~6.7 oz), the weight is also slightly higher. However, compared to the rest of our test field, the Huawei P40 Lite 5G is at the same level as the competitors.

Equipment - A 5G smartphone with a dual-SIM slot

The P40 Lite 5G is run by a HiSilicon Kirin 820 SoC and an ARM Mali-G57 graphics unit. In addition, there is 6 GB of working memory and 128 GB of UFS storage. According to the spec sheet, the latter can be expanded by up to 256 GB using an NM card, but then one of the two nanoSIM slots will be occupied. Both slots support LTE and 5G, but the latter is impossible with both slots at the same time. VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling are also available.

For wired data transfer, there is a USB Type-C port, which is connected internally via the USB-2.0 standard. The Camera2 API is available in "Limited" form, and DRM Widevine L1 is unsupported. There is also no notification LED, but on the other hand, the P40 Lite 5G does offer a 3.5-mm audio port.

Software - EMUI 10.1 without Google

Users of the P40 Lite 5G will be greeted by the manufacturer's own EMUI-10.1 interface, which is based on Android 10 and easy to learn even for newcomers. Since Huawei has to make do without Google Services, the manufacturer has installed its own apps to replace the missing services. One of them is the Huawei App Gallery, which offers a very extensive amount of apps. However, some apps and games, such as PUBG Mobile, for example, are not available there. Here Amazon's App Store, which offers many popular apps, can bring some relief.

In addition, at this point there is also the "Petal Search" service on board, which allows you to easily install apps outside of the App Gallery.

At the time of our testing, an update offering the security patches from May 1, 2020 is available.

Communication and GPS - Accurate locating is possible

The Huawei P40 Lite 5G is able to connect to the GSM, 3G, LTE, and 5G mobile networks. Using LTE Cat. 21, it can achieve download speeds up to 1400 Mb/s and upload speeds up to 300 Mb/s. In the 5G area, mainly the large bandwidth stands out. Even in some 5G flagships this turns out lower in parts. At close range, NFC, Bluetooth 5.1, and Wi-Fi 5 are available.

In the WLAN test with our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router, the Huawei smartphone achieves speeds of 333 Mb/s on average when receiving and 255 Mb/s on average when transferring data.

The Huawei P40 Lite 5G is able to determine its location using GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and Galileo, as well as QZSS. Using the GPS Test app, we achieve a very good accuracy of one meter outdoors. However, it was not possible to determine our location indoors.

On our mandatory bike tour, the Android smartphone records our route with a similar accuracy as our Garmin Edge 500 reference device.

Telephone Functions and Voice Quality - A clear connection

The phone app of the P40 Lite 5G offers direct access to the dial pad, and two additional tabs also give access to the contact list and stored favorites. During the conversation, the phone produces a good volume and transfers the voices of both conversation partners clearly and understandably. Additional noises are filtered out reliably.

Cameras - Good images with natural colors

Picture taken with the front camera
Picture taken with the front camera

Huawei has equipped the P40 Lite 5G with a quad-camera system. The 64-MP main sensor is accompanied by one 8-MP and two 2-MP sensors. With its 16-MP sensor, the front camera produces sharp portrait pictures that score with their natural colors. Details and fine structures are reproduced well, but objects in the background are depicted with some slight graininess. Users are able to select among various beauty and AI effects in the camera app, but the professional mode is limited to the main camera.

This also succeeds in taking photos that are rich in detail and have natural colors. Those also show up in 5x zoom photos, but you can already see some slight blurriness in the regular view. This is also present in photos taken with the wide-angle lens, where the colors also appear slightly paler than they should be. In low-light photos, our test object still remains easily recognizable without the night mode being activated, merely the colors are distorted slightly and details are missing. In the camera app, users can adjust the result with a Pro mode, which allows them to adjust the values for ISO, exposure, shutter speed, white balance, and the focus.

Video-recordings offer a similar image quality as our test photos. An image stabilizer remedies blurriness when the camera is not held stably. However, when changing quickly between light and dark areas, the camera needs a moment to adjust the image to the changed light conditions. As resolutions, 4K, 1080p, and 720p are available in the 16:9 format, and you can also select 1080p as full screen. In the menu, the only available frame-rate adjustments are "Automatic" and "30 fps".

Accessories and Warranty - Headset included

The box of the Huawei smartphone also contains a USB charger with the corresponding USB Type-C cable, a wired headset with a 3.5-mm jack, and a SIM tool.

Huawei offers buyers a warranty period of 24 months.

Input Devices and Operation - The protective foil cover hinders swipe movements

Huawei uses the SwiftKey keyboard app, which allows fast text input and can be adjusted in numerous ways. While the touchscreen of the P40 Lite 5G responds to touch very directly, it offers some resistance to the fingertips during drag-and-drop and swipe movements that is slightly too much. 

In addition to PIN or pattern input, face recognition or the fingerprint sensor on the side can also be used to unlock the smartphone. During our test, the recognition of stored faces as well as fingerprints worked very well.

The display of the Huawei P40 Lite 5G consists of a 6.5-inch IPS panel that offers a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels in the 20:9 format. At 457 cd/m², the average brightness is lower than that of the competing devices with an OLED display in our test field. The same goes for the brightness distribution of 91%.

However, the measured values can still be considered good for the display technology used. With the brightness sensor activated, the P40 Lite 5G achieves a maximum brightness of 463 cd/m², and we measure up to 452 cd/m² in the APL50 test. The lowest brightness setting is 1.12 cd/m².

Our measurements also show that the Huawei smartphone does not use PWM for brightness control.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17893 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

With a contrast ratio of 764:1 and a black value of 0.61, the display of the P40 Lite 5G ends up last in our test field. Users can adjust the color reproduction in the settings menu with the available modes being "Normal" and "Vibrant" and the color temperatures "Standard," "Warm," and "Cold." There is also a freely adjustable scale. The "Normal, Standard" combination shows a very balanced color spectrum in the sRGB color space, while the "Vibrant, Standard" combination shows a blue tint in the P3 color space.

Performance - The Kirin 820 shines in the benchmarks

The hardware of the Huawei P40 Lite 5G places the Android smartphone in the mid-range and thus targets users who are looking for a well-performing phone for everyday tasks but also need some performance reserves for gaming, for example. In combination with 6 GB of RAM, the HiSilicon Kirin 820 used here ensures a smooth system operation.

The benchmarks were run in the performance mode of the P40 Lite 5G, resulting in the Huawei phone placing at the top of our test field in most disciplines. Only in Android PCMark did the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G of the realme 6 Pro fare slightly better. In addition, the storage performance in the Basemark OS II memory test was also only sufficient for second place in this single discipline.

* ... smaller is better

Huawei has equipped the P40 Lite 5G with 128 GB of UFS-2.1 storage. This achieves good values that are sufficient for second place in our test field in the storage benchmarks. To expand the storage, only Huawei's own NanoMemory cards can be used. With those, the card reader achieves similarly good values as the other smartphones that use our Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 reference storage card.

Gaming - Suitable for gaming despite some small frame drops

An ARM Mali-G57 MP6 handles the display of image content in the P40 Lite 5G. While this graphics unit is also suited for games with medium-level demands, you should slightly lower the graphics settings for very demanding games.

In the games we tested using GameBench, the Huawei smartphone was able to offer smooth game operation, even though it suffered from occasional frame rate drops. In addition, the unusually low frame rate in the "Smooth" setting of PUBG Mobile, which was limited to 20 fps, stands out. Control via the touchscreen was slightly obstructed by the protective foil on the display, which offers slightly too much resistance to the fingertips.

Under load, the Huawei P40 Lite 5G warms up to a maximum of 34.7 °C (94.5 °F). With this, it never feels hot and can always be held in the hand without any problems. While the temperatures turn out moderate on the exterior, the demanding GFXBench Manhattan 3.1 constant load test shows a significant drop in the performance, even though the value it levels out at is still very good. However, the slightly older GFXBench ES 2.0 shows almost no variations in the performance. So users only have to expect a drop in the performance of the Huawei P40 Lite 5G in very demanding applications.

With the P40 Lite 5G, Huawei delivers a 5G smartphone at a price of less than 400 Euros (~$469). Aside from the support of the new mobile communication standard, the rest of the equipment is also relatively good, allowing the Android smartphone to best most of the competitors. The camera as well as the system performance are exemplary in this price range.

With the P40 Lite 5G, Huawei offers a 5G smartphone at a budget price, which unfortunately also has an effect on the quality in other places.

However, the P40 Lite 5G also shows some weaknesses in some rather unexpected places. For example, the display comes with a high black value and a relatively low contrast ratio. Some significantly more affordable smartphones do better here. Requiring the use of Huawei's NM cards is also hard to understand, since they practically offer no advantage over microSD cards in everyday usage. The fact that they also occupy one of the dual-SIM slots is also a negative point.

I made my first IT walking attempts on a 386 with 4 MB of RAM. After that followed various PCs and notebooks, which I looked after and repaired in my circle of friends and acquaintances. After an apprenticeship as a telecommunications systems engineer and several years of professional experience, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering. Today I live out my fascination for IT, technology and mobile devices by writing test reports. In my free time I like to devote myself to vegan cooking and spend time with my family, which includes a whole range of animal roommates.
