Performance and hardware
Despite being called “Lite”, which distincts it from Huawei flagships, this is no pushover in terms of processing power. The Kirin 650 octoprocessor is clocked at 2.0GHz and is made in new 16nm technology. In combination with 3 GB RAM memory, this ensures fast operation and low power consumption, which improves overall the battery life.
Thanks to HiSilicon Hi6402 chipset and integrated HiFi speaker, sound quality is very good, so it is certainly smartphone for audiophiles. The fast fingerprint reader is controlled by a specialized ARZ TrustZone chip technology, which allows instant access and the highest level of data security. The 3000 mAh battery allows about one and a half days of work. While it’s not that bad, it’s not the best result either, especially considering that screen isn’t as power hungry as in bezel-less six inchers.
Display and camera
The 5.2-inch touch screen will certainly appeal to people who prefer smaller and slimmer phones that will fit in your pocket and that can be easily operated with one hand. At this size the display definitely strikes good balance between ease of use and visibility and you can conveniently watch videos or surf the web on P9 Lite. With a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 px, you get a crystal clear image with a good contrast, providing great visual experience.
13.0MP rear camera with autofocus makes beautiful photos with highly saturated colors. There is no double lens here, but the sensor quality makes both portrait pictures and landscape photos look really nice, even in low light. Fast autofocus ensures that you can easily take pictures in the motion or from a fast moving cam. The 8.0MP front camera makes a nice selfies and is intended mostly for video conferencing. Additional slo-mo, time lapse modes and photo retouching features provide even more options for an aspiring photographer.
