We repeat the word Lite a lot in this review because we do not have other choices. This surname, in the case of Huawei, is synonymous with success, despite being, in short, a skimmed version of its flagships. In 2015, the P8 Lite reached the top: it sold more than its big brother and its popularity earned it the best-selling smartphone of the world third-largest manufacturer. So proud of what they launched a P8 Lite 2017 version last year with the P10 Lite and the P10 in the market. Now it’s time to discuss some great specs and features that available on the Mate 10 lite.
When seeing this phone for the first time it is clear that it is from Huawei, since its lines are very recognizable and, in addition, attractive. With restrained dimensions and a weight below 165 grams, this phone is handled quite freely which is especially due to its ergonomics is quite well maintained and Its finish is metallic, by the way.
In the hand, Huawei Mate 10 Lite shows robustness and, curiously, in the back the marks of the fingers are more than we expected. No surprises in the arrangement of buttons and accessories, for example, the fingerprint reader is located in the back (and works like a charm), draws the attention of the front how well used it is – to include two sensors in its camera for selfies.At the back, there is two vertical camera’s and If you are wondering this smartphone is water resistance, the answer is no.
This Huawei Mate 10 Lite comes with a 5.9-inch screen with 1920×2160 resolution with which you can enjoy multimedia content in high quality. The density of pixels per inch reaches 407ppi. Taking into account that the panel of the screen is of IPS type (Still Huawei not Spicy what type of glass used in Lite version), you will obtain the best performance with the minimum usage so that the battery lasts you much more.
It has sharp and vibrant LCD screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and also small bezels on each corner. The phone is more comfortable to hold but you will still have to use both hands to user top of the screen. And if you want to use Lite outside the door then just turn up the brightness.
This phone arrives with two cameras on the rear side, one of 16 megapixels and the other 2 Mpx. It includes PDAF and flash type LED, and the quality that is achieved with the Huawei Mate 10 Lite is better than expected, with good management of dynamic range and definition is remarkable (and, also, when there is little light does not suffer much like other models of the competition). It does not lack portrait mode that, in addition, it is possible to calibrate “live”.
As regards the front camera of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, it is also curious to be dual, which also allows the use of portrait mode. It includes 13 and 2 megapixels and, the truth is that you really liked the selfies that are made of it. And about the video, it allows recording in 1080p up to 30 frames per second.
The two main components of the phone are an eight-core Kirin 659 processor that operates at a frequency of 2.36 GHz and includes a Mali-T830 Mp2 GPU. This is one of the reasons why this is a competent model for day to day and, the truth is that for the mid-range product is adapted as a glove. In what has to do with RAM, the choice is 4 GB with, which is not bad. Altogether, we have obtained a performance with the Apps that we have cataloged as satisfactory.
