Huawei first released the Huawei P8 with its lower cost sibling, the Huawei P8 Lite in 2015. However, the Chinese firm decided to revive the P8 Lite by releasing an upgraded and more powerful 2017 version of the smartphone. What does the 2017 edition of the P8 Lite offer to its users? Over the years, Huawei has proven that they are able to produce good-quality smartphones and the P8 Lite 2017 is no exception. The new version is an aesthetically-pleasing mid-range device. The P8 Lite’s matte edges give way to a shiny glass rear which enhances the smartphone’s appearance, making it stand out from the other plastic options in its price category.
The device has a 5.2-inch Full HD 1080p x 1920p display screen which leads to crisp and rich visuals, great for gaming and movie bingeing. Visibility under direct sunlight is also commendable, allowing users to work and play outdoors without any issue. The addition of an “eye comfort” mode by Huawei filters unnecessary blue light so that users can see the screen comfortably at night.
The P8 Lite 2017 smartphone runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. Moreover, Huawei has installed the latest version of its feature-filled Emotion UI, EMUI 5.0, on the P8 Lite 2017. In short, the new UI adds bonus customization and resource management tools to Android such as one-handed functionality and gesture support activation.
Besides the features mentioned above, other highlights include an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 655 chipset with 3GB of RAM which guarantees a smooth performance, 16GB internal storage that can be expanded to 256GB via a microSD memory card for users to store their favourite multimedia files, and battery life that can last up two days of use per charge even after demanding usage.
