It doesn’t matter if you want to listen to music, take photos of your favorite places, or just watch a video on its sharp display. Huawei P8 Lite will handle all these (and more) impressively.
By the looks of it, graphics card manufacturers are not the only ones to launch the flagship products first, followed by the lesser models. Smartphone makers have made a habit from that, too, and the latest example comes from Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei. After launching the P8 and the P8 Max, the company has decided to offer P8 Lite, a stripped down version of the former ones. The price of the device is also lower than of the flagships, so there are disturbances in the Force with this one.
At the core of the P8 Lite sits a Hisilicon Kirin 620 octa-core CPU running at 1.2GHz. In terms of memory, Huawei equipped this one with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM that can be furthermore expanded by using a microSD card of up to 32GB.
Android M may be just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean that Lollipop’s life is over. The P8 Lite is running the latter, with Huawei’s EMUI 3.1 on top.
While not record-breakingly thin, P8 Lite’s 7.7mm thick body will be very comfortable to hold in hand, and the 5-inch HD display based on a Sharp panel has a lot to contribute to that, too.
In the camera department, the P8 Lite has a 13MP snapper on the back and a 5MP sensor in the front, with all sorts of enhancements for selfies, such as Face Beauty and Smile Capture.
Music playback seems to be among the main strong points of the P8 Lite. An enlarged integrated sound chamber was used for a more powerful output. Besides that, Huawei made use of an audio frequency enhancement technology and HDR noise reduction. According to the manufacturer, sounds played on this smartphone are supposed to be very crisp, and a lot more detailed than what the competition is offering at the same price.
