Huawei P8 Lite in Review: good design and quality photos in the smallest of the family

At the bottom of the barrel, every year, is Huawei, which always launches quality devices. This year he has shown us his new Huawei P8 family, the flagship with the same name, which we have already analyzed, the Huawei P8 Max, a huge phablet, and the Huawei P8 Lite, the smallest of the family. And precisely, the latter is our protagonist today.

Because today is the analysis of the Huawei P8 Lite, a more than interesting mid-range, which of course follows the line of its older brothers with a beautiful design, and other characteristics that make it a more than interesting option within this segment, without further ado, we leave you with the review of the Huawei P8 Lite, go ahead!

Characteristics and technical specifications

In the aforementioned analysis of the Huawei P8, we have a delicious taste in the mouth in the design and materials section. Although this Huawei P8 Lite does not use materials of the same quality, since it uses plastic throughout its chassis, it follows us, offering very successful finishes and an attractive physical appearance.

How could it be otherwise? The Huawei P8 Lite mounts an 8-core processor of the house, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM. For storage, we have 16 GB that we can expand via microSD. As for the software, it includes Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, along with the Emotion UI customization layer in version 3.1

Video analysis


The Huawei P8 Lite is a good terminal in general, strong in almost all important sections such as performance, connectivity, and cameras, as well as software, with a fairly updated version of Android, and a layer of personalization that although we don’t like it excessively, the truth is that it behaves correctly. The screen, without being a marvel, is acceptable.

We have not liked another aspect so much, such as the battery, which we consider too short at this point.

Positive points

  • Physical appearance: It retains the design line of the Huawei P8, so it continues to have a meticulous and ultimately beautiful physical appearance.
  • Camera: It is not usual for the mid-range to have good cameras, but this time they do. Good quality with both the front and rear cameras, and a very complete and comfortable application to use.

Bad points

  • Battery: Only 2200 milliamps of capacity, which is scarce, so we squeeze the terminal a bit.
