About Huawei P20 Lite - Review, Specs + more With the P20 Lite, Huawei is trying to tempt users that are not happy with high-end alternatives from Apple and Samsung. The 4G/LTE smartphone has a bright display and compared to its predecessor an improved camera. You can use it comfortably. It's a little smaller and lesser-powered than the regular P20 - but does that necessarily mean 'worse'? Let's find out... Leica lenses galore One of the highlights of the Lite is the rear camera with 12- and 20-megapixel lenses from Leica. According to our reviewer, it produces sharp, colourful and detailed pictures. It is even better than the cameras of the top market leaders like the Galaxy S9 Plus and iPhone X. Only the Google Pixel 2 makes even better photos. Positive: Compared to the predecessor P10, there is significantly less noise. Instead, you get bright and high-contrast shots. The front camera offers a whopping 24 megapixels, but has to contend with edge blur and distorted colours. For this, the user has many camera functions including an artificial intelligence (AI) available. In addition, the system detects if any movements will occur soon automatically and this contributes to better image stabilisation — for example in 4K video recordings. Bright, sharp display The 5.8-inch Full HD display is almost frameless and comes with the notch known from the iPhone X. If you want truly notch-less then the P30 Pro is the way to go. This black strip at the top houses the front camera, speakers and sensors. With the fingerprint reader on the front or via face recognition you can unlock the IPS display. Ib terms of brightness, this phone sits well within the sector of middle-level phones, but remains behind top models. Compared to the P20 Pro it is 100 candela per square meter brighter, which makes it easier to read in the sun. The optics are characterised by a stainless steel frame and a polished glass back. To avoid fingerprints and slipping out of the hand, you can use the enclosed protective cover. Alternatives to the P20 Lite Technically, the P20 positions itself below the others in the P20 range, so therefore it's the cheapest. If you're looking for a budget Huawei then this is the way to go - it has most of the features you would expect, although users with a bit more to spend will want to opt for the new P30 Lite.
