Bottom Line

Although it is a significant depth lower in the spec-scale than the Huawei P8, the P8 lite is still a premium-looking device that offers more than is acceptable for its price.

The Huawei P8 Lite is a 2015 5-inch Android smartphone that was released to be the less pricey sidekick to their flagship, the Huawei P8. Reviewers were very happy with the fact that despite its purpose in the world being only to be a cheaper alternative, Huawei still endowed it with a thin, light, attractive and solid build that give it the same premium look its pricier big brother has. The sharp 13MP camera and dual-SIM capabilities were also met with positive reviews. On the other hand, critics threw jabs at the heavy-handed Android skin, the shaky battery life and the questionable display quality. The Huawei P8 Lite is an adequately capable device whose friendly price tag makes it very compelling.

    At first glance, the Huawei P8 Lite looks almost identical to its flagship counterpart. However, coming in at $249 in the US and £199 in the UK, some sacrifices have been made. Gone is the metal body for a plastic faux metal frame, and the screen is slightly smaller at five inches. It's also a bit thicker at 7.7mm, though does weigh about half an ounce less at 4.62 ounces.
