Huawei P40 Lite Review

Score: 79.5 / 100

Huawei P40 Lite is an incredible phone launched back in the year 2020, including a great Octa-Core processing unit running at 2.27 GHz, a large 6.4" display, a 48 MP back facing camera and a 16 mega-pixels front-facing camera. We will get a better understanding of this cellphone's pros when we get into deeper details.

The Huawei P40 Lite design uses Plastic and Plastic . Huawei offers this device in three different colors: crush green, midnight black and sakura pink. The Huawei P40 Lite is much lighter than what you would expect from a phone this size. The Huawei P40 Lite is extremely slim and good-looking, being just 0.34 inches thick. This phone is only 6.27" long, but it still manages to hold a 6.4 inches screen.

This phone includes a great 1080 x 2310 6.4" screen, which makes everything look brightful and colorful.

Huawei decided to build this cellphone with a high performance 2270 MHz Octa-Core processor, packed into the HiSilicon Kirin 810 system chip with a huge 6 GB of RAM. The Huawei P40 Lite counts with a large 128 GB internal storage and whereas it doesn't count with an external SD slot, it it is more than enough to store tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without worrying about filling the cellphone.

The Huawei P40 Lite includes Wi-Fi connectivity (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G high speed connection type and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a slower 4G type) and fast 3G connectivity, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Huawei P40 Lite uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 48 MP back facing camera and a 16 MP front facing camera. Its back facing camera lens has a F1.8 aperture so it can shoot excellent photographs even in dark environments. The Huawei P40 Lite also shoots videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. To complete the camera, it also has time lapse video.

The Huawei P40 Lite packs a 4200 mAh long lasting Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this phone running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to get older, whereas with such a great capacity you will probably discard this phone before that becomes a real problem.

This phone also comes with lots of interesting characteristics like Fingerprint ID, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone costs around 244 dollars, which is quite close to other same level cellphones. No matter whether you will use it to play games, are an amateur photographer, will use it as a social cellphone or are looking for a work cellphone, this device is a great option for you.
