When the Huawei P30 Lite, introduced in April 2019 and the successor to the P20 Lite, is the little brother of the Huawei P30 and the P30 Pro.

The P30 Lite has a 6.15-inch FullView screen with the Huawei Dewdrop Notch, an inconspicuous notch in which the front camera. With an aspect ratio of 19.3:9 the FullView screen offers a broader perspective, wrapped in a sleek shape.

With 4 GB of RAM and an octa-core Kirin 710 processor run most apps. The smartphone has 128 GB storage and is equipped with a sturdy 3340 mAh battery and Quick Charge. Thanks to AI is the P30 lite also extra careful with his energy, allowing the phone nice long life.

The Huawei P30 lite has a slim 3D-curved design and is available in three iconic colours inspired by nature: Peacock Blue, Pearl White and Midnight Black (£329.99) available from Huawei and Carphone Warehouse and Amazon UK

Cameras
On the back is the Huawei P30 lite equipped with a high-definition 48-megapixel (f/1.8) wide angle lens, an 8MP ultra wide-angle lens (f/2.4) and a 2MP bokeh lens. This allows the P30 lite detailed photos, 120-degree wide angle pictures and portraits with beautiful bokeh effects. The P30 lite also has the handheld Super Night mode, that AI-image stabilization. This is in low light photography improved by combining multiple frames and long exposures, so photos beautiful colours and brightness. Because the main camera has a 48-megapixel resolution can zoom in two times without loss of quality. At the front, you’ll find a 24-Megapixel selfie camera.

Android 9 (or Android 9 Pie) offers a number of improvements over the previous versions. Your apps can still run next to each other. Two apps on smartphones and tablets you can run next to each other in split screen mode. Google has once again paid great attention to the notifications in Android Pie. Whatsapp for example now has the ability to view images and stickers to show in the notifications of the messages. Also, you can now all your active discussions in the notification screen and you get the possibilities for quick responses. Useful is the new app actions.

The P30 Lite has a 3,340mAh battery inside its glass body, which is a little small, truth be told. But the Kirin 710 chipset is a power efficient beast, and we never really had issues when it comes to battery longevity during our time with the P30 Lite.

Huawei’s P30 Lite slots neatly into the mid-range category with its £329 price point. While it’s not as fast as some of its rivals in the same category, the smartphone’s triple cameras are good enough for people looking to dabble in mobile photography.

We like the inclusion of the 3.5mm jack, as well as the USB Type-C port and roomy 128GB storage, things that usually aren’t present in the offerings of other brands in the same price segment.
