Product care. Huawei supplements its P9 lineup with the classy mid-range smartphone P9. The 5.2-inch Android handset proved to be a worthy successor of the bestseller P8 Lite in the test.

Huawei P9 Lite and Color Band A1 quick review – a combination that will appeal to anyone
Source: Laptop Media English
In a time when the market for wearable tech is ever growing, one’s ownership of a smart bracelet or watch is becoming a more common thing. However, the price is what draws away many users and they ask the fair question of whether the features of these devices are worth the investment. With the new offer combining a smartphone and a smart bracelet, Huawei is trying to make us think twice. The company has put together the stylish and powerful Huawei P9 lite and the smart bracelet.

Huawei P9 lite review
Source: GSM Arena English
The "diet" label usually comes with a warning: "does not replace an exercise routine." In similar fashion, the Huawei P9 lite has to do the work, it just can't cut back on the sugar and call it a day. And it does deliver. It has a sweet display, the build quality, chipset and battery life proved quite tasty as well. The camera is good if not great while the software is an acquired taste, which some of you may already have.

Low-calorie diet
Source: Pocket Lint English
So while it might be a low calorie take on the P9, sometimes the skimmed option does everything that you want: which is exactly the point of the P9 Lite. Fair price, fair performance and more than fair design lead the way here, the big difference being the shedding of those dual Leica cameras to the rear.

Comment

Model: The Huawei P9 Lite is an Android smartphone claimed to be the successor of the former P8 lite. The chassis is made with an aluminum frame with a polycarbonate back. Although the back is made with plastic, the coating on it gives it a metallic looking experience. It comes pre-installed with Android OS 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, has Kirin650 Quad-Core 2.0 GHz + Quad-Core 1.7 GHZ processor, a Mali-T880MP2 graphic card, 3 GB RAM or 2 GB RAM, and a 16 GB with eMMC flash memory. Thanks to a microSD slot the storage capacity can be expanded by up to 128 GB. The operating system is skinned with EMUI UI instead of a stock Android UI.

Its 5.2-inch IPS screen features Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and delivers good images with strong, accurate colors and good whites and blacks. The 13 MP rear camera features autofocus, a LED flash, geo-tagging, face detection, touch focus, HDR and panorama features. The front camera features a resolution of 8 MP and a LED flash. The smartphone also comes with sensors such as accelerometer, proximity sensor, digital compass and ambient light sensor. It is available in 3 different colors; gold, black and white. It weighs 147 g and its battery life can last for over 10 hours.

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 650: ARM based octa core SoC (8x Cortex-A53). Four cores can be clocked with up to 1.7 GHz (power saving cores) and four with up to 2 GHz (performance cores). The SoC also integrates a Mali-T830 MP2 GPU and an LTE radio. » 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).
84.93%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
