Huawei P30 Lite

The Huawei P30 Lite has the style of its bigger siblings, but not much else to recommend it.

The good

  • Design looks nice in blue.
  • Range of camera lenses
  • Headphone jack
  • MicroSD expansion

The bad

  • Poor battery performance
  • No NFC
  • EMUI is messy
  • Huawei's Android future is still unclear


Amidst its ongoing fight with the US government, Huawei Australia launched the low-cost Huawei P30 Lite into the country. As the name suggests, it's a lower-cost alternative to the company's excellent Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 phones, with much of the style but toned-down camera and processor features.

Within the mid-range space, it's a fair phone, but its lacklustre battery life is a real problem.

Design

  • Available in black or blue finishes
  • Plastic body, but comfortable to hold
  • LCD screen is a step down from the P30's OLED
  • Headphone jack, but weirdly offset at the base

Camera

  • Triple lenses are good for this price bracket
  • Good range of shooting modes
  • Video quality is still a weak point for Huawei

Performance

  • Kirin 710 is resolutely mid-range
  • 128GB of memory and microSD support returns
  • Lacks NFC support
  • Android 9, but the upgrade path is anything but clear

Battery life

  • 3,340mAh battery delivers way lower battery endurance than expected
  • Fast wired charging

Verdict

  • Reasonable value but not a standout the way Huawei's other P-series handsets have been
  • Worth waiting until the Google situation becomes more apparent
