Coolsmartphone

Design? Great. Love the look and feel of this. It’s got a quick recharge system and chugs along. I have a long memory, and I still remember phones costing this amount being far worse. A very good budget phone. This is a very good Huawei phone. Heck, it’s a very good phone full stop.

The Huawei P30 Lite is a good phone. It looks striking, has a decent screen and the camera is versatile too. With middling power though, and good, but not great battery life, all combined with a lofty price tag, it isn’t quite a no-brainer.

The P30 Lite is an attractive phone with decent cameras at an affordable price. However, it falls down in other areas which are important. Most notably performance and battery life.

Offers an exceptional lineup of features for the price tag

In terms of value of money, you’d be hard pressed to find something that beats it. Reflecting on the ultimate challenge of shaving the price and maintaining what a P30 is, I think Huawei has done a brilliant job. With such a similar form factor, so many of the same features, it really does feel Huawei engineers cut in the right areas.

Includes a well-featured camera, especially for the price

from Photography Blog

If you’re looking for something affordable to replace your current phone but don’t have the budget - or don’t want to spend big - then the Huawei P30 Lite is definitely worth a look. Particularly for the super wide-angle lens it comes highly recommended.

The P30 Lite offers a modern design, a great build quality, and an IPS panel with wide viewing angles and accurate colors. The cameras, particularly the 24 MP front-facing camera, are more than just adequate for its class. However, there are too many often minor shortcomings ruining the overall impression, particularly when taking Huawei’s MSRP into consideration. Luckily, the Chinese manufacturer proved to be adaptive enough to realize that context-based brightness adjustment might be too much, and has therefore reduced the effect to a minimum.

The Huawei P30 Lite is a very strong mid-ranger overall, with a class-leading camera and a premium design being the main high points. The screen is also decent, if no better than rivals, and there’s lots of storage. Where the phone falls down a bit is in battery life and power – neither are bad, but nor are they as good as we’d like for the money.

The P30 Lite is the most affordable of the three P30-series smartphones, which should give it some appeal. Rather than cut back across the board to hit its price target, Huawei has delivered an attractive industrial design and an above-average camera system, at the expense of screen technology and battery capacity. If you're happy with these trade-offs, the Huawei P30 Lite is a good buy.

The Huawei P30 Lite has some of the flagship P30 magic, but those little sparkles are not enough to light up the fire of excitement. It has a good screen, but it's not an OLED. There is a triple-camera on the back, but it's not even close to what the P30's and the Pro's can do. The lack of excitement doesn't make the P30 Lite a bad phone, on the contrary - it has a lot going on, including game-ready hardware. But it far from being competitive until its price goes down.
