Huawei’s P9 Lite: the Lightweight champion against the Huawei P9

The Huawei P9 Lite is being marketed as a scaled down (in features not size) model of the original P9 by Huawei, nevertheless this budget friendly handset is still perfectly formed.

With a 5.2 inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, the Full HD display of the P9 lite is identical to the Huawei P9. The only difference is the glass choice, with Huawei replacing the Gorilla Glass 4 of the P9, with the simple glass cover on the lite version. Nevertheless, colour representation and brightness are one of the main criteria for judging a good smartphone display and Huawei have boosted these areas with the P9 lite, allowing it to achieve a credible 450 candelas.

Running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Huawei have also managed to create some additional Android options that wouldn’t necessary come as default. The fingerprint scanner on the rear of the handset not only unlocks your phone but can also be use for other actions, such as accepting calls, taking selfies or swiping through images.

The Huawei P9 Lite also offers NFC and LTE connectivity and is powered by a 1.8GHz/2.5GHz octa-core Kirin 955 Processor and 3GB Ram, which makes the handset a speedy choice.

Camera choices for both handsets differ slightly,  with a more conventional choice for the more budget friendly P9 Lite. Whereas the flagship P9 original offers Leica’s dual camera setup, the P9 Lite is more similar to last year’s Huawei P8, with a single camera set up.
