Although features and price to the Huawei P8 Lite, the slimmed-down version of the Huawei P8 in the test can not fully convincing.
So much first of all: With the upper-class Smartphone P8 the Lite has seen off model by the name of few similarities – what is no great surprise given the large price difference but. While the P8 only from 450 euro is, you must shell out only 250 euro for the P8 Lite. After all, it is possible the manufacturer strongly reject the design at the top of the range: the two smartphones to the confused look alike at first glance. When taking a closer look, the differences are however abundantly clear. The Cabinet is in the Lite not from a metal unibody, but made of plastic, however very beautifully designed.
The metal finish of the frame looks deceptively real and like the back with a slightly corrugated texture. The processing is top, although the P8 Lite with his plastic frame is not quite as stiff as the more expensive sister model. A positive side effect of the material: 143 x 71 mm and 132 grams in size the P8 Lite is the lightest and most compact representatives in the 5-inch class.
The display is, however, no highlights. While the resolution with 1280 x 720 pixels is typical class and yet sufficiently sharp, the luminosity in the laboratory test with only 354 candela turned out to be below average. Due to a low black value the appearance is still full of contrasts, on a bright summer day, but faster, you get problems with readability as other Smartphone owners. That this better is also in this price class, which demonstrates Xperia M4 Aqua.
Under the display an eight core processor sets the clock, this is an in-house development by Huawei. The HiSilicon Kirin 620 can be found also in other Huawei smartphones, about the honor of 4 c. The cores are clocked relatively slowly with maximum 1.2 GHz, but you must not worry about lack of power reserves. The P8 Lite offers a very good performance in benchmarks, as well as in everyday life what is also because that memory with 2 GB is very lush.
The camera on the back takes photos with a resolution of up to 13 megapixels and turns with maximum full-HD resolution videos. It offers a simple LED Flash, auto focus and a large aperture of f/2.0. Even if moving the quality of images in optimal light conditions at a high level, which differs little from top smartphones like the P8, expect no wonder things from the camera. The class differences are very clear, if little light available because disproportionately increasing noise and blurred the images faster.
Overall, the quality is more than adequate but the price. Liked also gave us the camera’s menu, which is not only very clearly structured, but provides many tools – by adjusting the color saturation possible up to time-lapse footage. In comparison with the P8, actually only the light painting missing function and the Director mode for video recordings.
The operating system was adopted, however, 1:1, the Lite model Android are installed in the latest version 3.1 5 and the Huawei UI EMUI. I like with many useful features and a modern look that is iOS based on Apple’s. Extras include a telephone Manager with memory management, a power saver and a permissions Manager for apps with which you can set which app on how the Internet is allowed to access. The many personalization options that allow for extensive customization of the surface are strong. We missed only an equalizer to adjust the sound.
Dual-SIM or more memory
In Germany, the Huawei P8 Lite with and without dual-SIM is available. The variant with a SIM slot is currently sold by Vodafone, with two you get in free trade or on online platforms such as Amazon. The second slot is also the interface for the micro-SD, the slots for the SIM cards are different sizes (micro-SIM and nano-SIM). This means that no memory expansion is possible, if one wants to use two SIM cards.
As the internal storage with 10 GB turns out not just lush, one should consider himself so well, what is more important. The management of two SIM cards from the settings menu is very well resolved, you can set exactly what card is to assume the tasks. Both slots support all GSM wireless standard LTE.
Conclusion: Reception top, battery low
The radio services are excellent across the Board, in the UMTS network, the P8 Lite manages even the top grade. The voice quality is moving at a good level. Only at maturity, the P8 Lite can not convince, the 2200 mAh battery keeps the Smartphone in the connect using mix only below-average 5:17 hours alive. During normal use, it will be difficult, with the P8 Lite to come over one day. But that is the only big goof, which afford the Smartphone. On the plus side are the chic design, the good facilities and the reasonable price.
