About Mate 20 Lite - Review, Specs + more

Huawei offers you with the Mate 20 Lite a visually striking and very extensively equipped smartphone for high demands. It's an often overlooked smartphone compared to the other Huawei models, but is it worth considering? Let's find out...

What you need to know:

  • Kirin 710 2.2GHz 8-core processor
  • Hybrid slot for 2nd SIM or memory card
  • 3750 mAh battery

With the Mate 20 Lite, the Chinese continue to build on the strengths of their predecessors and show what is possible in terms of features in this price segment. The battery life is just an outstanding feature.

Also camera and operation were optimised and extended by interesting AI elements. This is joined by a current operating system and a fast processor. Many reviews praise the huge display, the excellent battery life and the intuitive, AI-based user guidance.

AI camera

  • AI-powered dual-lens rear camera
  • Dual-lens camera on the front too
  • Iffy AR effects

Huawei’s big push with the Mate 20 Lite is the fact that it’s an "AI powered smartphone" like the full-fat Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro, but with a significantly lower price tag.

Before you start imagining a next-level Alexa-like assistant attending to your every whim, the company’s modest AI push mainly operates in conjunction with the camera. We’ll get into the nitty-gritty of camera performance in the relevant section, but the AI enhancements are worth focusing on up front.

Opening the camera app and pointing at a subject, the Huawei Mate 20 Lite will read the scene and adjust to the appropriate setting automatically. If it’s an overcast day, it will decipher this and inform you that it has made the necessary changes. The same applies if you’re indoors, or taking a photo of your dog.

There is criticism of some of features. In the LTE and GSM network, the Mate 20 Lite showed weaknesses. . Workmanship and appearance are very well received by both testers. The hottest competitor is probably the Samsung Galaxy S8, which is a bit more expensive.

Verdict

However overall it's obvious that the Chinese manufacturers are no longer playing catch-up, and actually innovating. If I were Apple I would be very afraid - the way that these companies have come on in leaps-and-bounds in a very short space of time, should worry them deeply. It is a bit like the Korean car manufacturers - only 10 years ago, nobody wanted a KIA, and now they're everywhere.

So should you buy a Mate 20 Lite? Our gut feeling is actually - maybe not, if you want newer features. Opt for one of the newer models as they are not that much more expensive, and they blow the equivalent Apple or Samsung out of the water in terms of price.

Not sure which Mobile network to go for?

OneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Huawei Mate 20 Lite ee contract or a Huawei Mate 20 Lite Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - OneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Huawei Mate 20 Lite contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signal across all major mobile networks across the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, In their latest research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 5787 Huawei Mate 20 Lite deals, our cheapest Huawei Mate 20 Lite deal over the entire life of the contract is £288.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

We have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile Networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Huawei Mate 20 Lite SIM free phone would cost, this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront. The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile Networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Huawei Mate 20 Lite handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Huawei Mate 20 Lite Contract.

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contract is to consider purchasing a pre owned Huawei Mate 20 Lite phone from the likes of Music Magpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
