Huawei's P30 Lite is the best mid-range phone everyone



Every year for some the time now Huawei has been releasing a budget version of their flagship devices under the p line up and this year is no different. The p30 lite is now available in stores and is a great choice for those who are not in the market for a $1000 dollar device. Below are  the specs of the lite  version of the p30:

·         Screen 6.15 TFT LCD
·         Memory 4GB Ram + 128GB ROM
·         Triple camera 24MP/8MP/2MP
·         Front camera 32MP
·         Battery 3340maH
·         Fingerprint sensor
·         Android 9.0
       No Water Proofing       

      Colour And Material.

The p 30 lite has the same premium looks that the p30 pro comes with even though it has a significantly lower price. The back is made of glass but instead of the aluminium frame, the p 30 lite is made of a plastic frame but still looks very impressive and appealing to the eye. Despite the plastic frame, the phone does not feel cheap at all. The device has similar colour reflections which make Huawei devices aesthetically superior to other devices. The white version of the device looks very clean and minimalistic but the peacock blue is more aggressive and when light hits it at the right angle, you get a beautiful S wavy reflection which is very appealing to the eye. So it terms of looks you’re not missing much when compared to the p30 pro. There is a little wobbly due to the camera bump so using it on a flat surface is not comfortable but a case can fix that.

Screen


The screen features a 6.15 TFT LCD screen with a 1080p resolution. It also features a waterdrop notch at the top middle of the screen, but the notch can be hidden in the settings so that should not be a problem if you are not a fan of the notch, Content consumption is very decent with the device having  415 PPI with good contrast and colours. Maximum brightness is good but it's not the brightest we have seen. It also has an LED notification light why helps you know when you need to check your device.

Hardware, Software and Storage

The device packs a kirin 710 which provides decent performance comparable with snapdragon 660 with games running smoothly most of the time. It also comes with 4 GB  and 128GB of internal storage with an option for expandable storage. The device also comes with Android pie with Huawei's  EMUI built on top, but can be updated to EMUI 9.1 at least.

Battery

The p30 lite comes with 3399 maH battery which gives very good battery performance. It also has fast charging which can charge from zero to 35% in half an hour.

Camera

Huawei went with a triple camera setup this time with a 48MP main camera,8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP depth sensor for portrait mode. Pictures look great in good light with good colours, detail and dynamic range. No telephoto camera on the p30 lite means zooming is done digitally.

Availability



The Huawei P30 lite is available to purchase at all major retailers including, Carphone, Warehouse, EE,  Amazon and Jumia for less than $300. To buy online, select a retailer either Jumia  or Amazon .

Conclusion

Budget devices have gotten very good in the last few years and at this price the p30 lite ticks all the boxes and if you are planning to get a new device it would be a great choice.
