Overview of the Huawei P30 Lite.
The Chinese manufacturer has done a remarkable job of making its very latest smartphone developments available at an affordable price with the launch of the P30 Lite, which carries many of the same features as it's pricier peers and delivers impressive levels of performance without breaking the bank.
It might not be easy to look beyond the head-turning, iridescent dual-glass casing on the P30 Lite, nor its 6.15-inch LTPS LCD display, but once you do you'll find a host of outstanding features lie in wait.
For example, there's a powerful Kirin 710 chipset and octa-core processor that power the Android Pie operating system with EMUI 9.0, and 128GB of storage space that can be expanded by the hybrid micro-SD card slot carried by this versatile smartphone.
The dual SIM port on the P30 Lite comes along with USB Type-C connectivity and there's a trusty 3.5mm jack for your favourite wired headphones to plug into as well.
There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for personalised security, and on the bottom edge of the phone you'll find a loudspeaker that pumps out clear, well-balanced audio whether you're listening to music or putting calls onto speaker.
Huawei P30 Lite Camera.
The main, rear-mounted camera on the P30 Lite is a 48-megapixel monster with an aperture of f/1.8, and this comes alongside an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and two-megapixel depth sensor. The results when shooting with the main camera are highly impressive, colourful, detailed photographs, and the phone's auto-shooting mode helps you make sure you don't miss a moment.
The HD videos you can shoot with the P30 Lite benefit from an 18.7:9 aspect ratio and, by capturing action at 60 frames per second, you can create clips with movie-like quality.
The P30 Lite stands above its peers when it comes to storing videos, as your footage can be recorded in the H.265 video compression format, so your high-quality clips will only take up half of the storage space that they would otherwise occupy.
Huawei P30 Lite Design.
You could be forgiven for mistaking the P30 Lite for one of Huawei's flagship P-series smartphones, given its striking good looks, advanced triple camera and dewdrop notch-enhanced display.
The design of this device is the definition of “stand out”. The plastic frame holds the front and back glass panels – the back panel being a stunning, glossy gradient design which shifts between colours in the light with a curved prism.
Huawei P30 Lite Display.
With a dewdrop notch surrounding the front-facing camera sensor, the display on the P30 Lite runs to the very edges of your device and presents everything you see in warm, vivid colours.
This is an LCD screen that specialises in keeping everything well lit and detailed, and the elongated aspect ratio and 2312x1080 resolution make for a great viewing experience whether you're browsing your photo album or loading up your favourite movies and TV shows.
A broad colour range and contrast ratio of 910:1 give the P30 Lite an impressively sharp, lifelike display, and peak luminance of 416cd/m2 keeps your phone visible even on the sunniest days out.
Huawei P30 Lite Battery.
The P30 will easily keep you going throughout a full day and more of moderate use thanks to its 3,340mAh battery and efficient processing. You won’t be waiting around when it does come to charging time, thanks to the 18W fast charging capabilities on board.
It’s not just the charging that’s fast - when unlocking the P30 Lite using the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, the speed and efficiency with which you're granted access to your phone sets the tone for the rest of its performance.
You can put the phone through its paces by holding the 'recent' key down and activating split-screen mode. Here, you can play a video alongside two further windows running separate applications and the P30 Lite will happily multitask to your heart’s content. Gesture-based navigation is available along with a Phone Manager app that helps you to stay on top of your storage, battery consumption and virus scanning.
The Kirin 710 chipset and octa-core CPU ensure there is no app too demanding for the P30 Lite, and even the most lurid, detailed 3D games run like a dream.
