Huawei P8 Lite


The Design

You are certain to fall in love with the design of the Huawei P8 Lite on the first look. The phone flaunts a unibody design featuring plastic material and comes in at just 7.7mm thick.

It has straight sides with curved corners and a cool metallic-looking back panel. The device is designed to fit nicely and comfortably into your hand.

Display and Camera

The Huawei P8 Lite sports a 5-inch display with a 720p HD resolution. The screen is protected by rugged Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to prevent it from cracking easily when dropped accidentally. Huawei provides an impressive image shooting capacity with a combo of 13-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

The cameras boast some nice features for capturing great images, including HDR, Panorama mode and what the Chinese phone maker calls “All-focus”. The rear camera has Full HD (1080p) video recording ability, while the selfie shooter can be used to record HD (720p) videos.

Power and Performance

Armed with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, the P8 Lite is designed for high responsiveness and seamless multitasking. The 64-bit processor, which is backed by 2GB of RAM and boasts processing speed clocked at 1.5 GHz, will chew through most of the tasks you will be doing on this phone with ease.

However, the Huawei P8 Lite runs on Android 4.4 KitKat operating system overlaid with Emotion UI 3.0 – a bit of disappointment given how cool and recent the phone is.

Other Interesting Features

The Huawei P8 Lite packs a 2200mAh battery, which is non-removable. Inbuilt storage is 16 GB and extra storage memory of up to 32 GB can be added with a microSD card. The phone supports dual-SIM feature as well as blazing-fast 4G LTE connectivity.

It is engineered to heighten the fun when listening to music with a powerful speaker featuring HDR noise reduction and multiple audio frequency enhancement technology.

Pricing and availability

Huawei P8 Lite is not yet available in Nigeria. You can buy original Huawei phones from leading online stores in Nigeria. Huawei P8 Lite Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N50,000 to N75,000, depending on your location.
