P40 Lite 5G: Huawei follows through

Offers strong hardware with a weak display: The Huawei P40 Lite 5G
Offers strong hardware with a weak display: The Huawei P40 Lite 5G
Despite the forced lack of Google Services, not only does Huawei deliver top smartphones but also devices with a very good price-performance ratio. The latter devices include the P40 Lite 5G smartphone that is available for 400 Euros (~$469).

The selection of 5G smartphones available at a price lower than 500 Euros (~$587) is slowly increasing. The newest devices in this category include the Huawei P40 Lite 5G, which has to make do without Google Services, just like its sibling models. However, users who embark on this changed path, won't miss anything for long.

In the hardware, Huawei also shows that a well-performing SoC does not have to be expensive. The HiSilicon Kirin 820 strikes a good figure in all the benchmarks, significantly raising the performance bar for mid-range smartphones. In addition, there is a good quad-camera system that can score with quite an attractive image quality.

Details mar the overall impression

While the Huawei smartphone convinces with its values inside, the exterior mars the impression of the device. Compared to the earlier "Lite" devices, the materials appear slightly cheap, and the operation of the touchscreen is made more difficult by the bad sliding characteristics of a protective foil. The display is also unable to convince fully, since the contrast ratio as well as the black value remain behind our expectations.

We can only speculate whether some corners were cut here to compensate for the price of the 5G integration. Those who need support for this mobile communication standard now and are content with the rest of the characteristics of the P40 Lite 5G will be rewarded with a good performance and a long battery life. Our review of the Huawei P40 Lite 5G shows what else the 5G smartphone has to offer.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.
