Huawei P9 Lite – review, specifications, prices, reviews

Appearance and ergonomics

Matte textured plastic adorns the back of the Huawei P9 Light, which looks quite stylish. There is a side metal frame. At the same time, all the corners of the body are rounded and the edges are beveled. The smartphone is thin and attractive, but somewhat spoils the appearance of the semi-transparent insert on the back, which is why it is glossy.

The fingerprint scanner is located on the back, it is implemented in the form of a square. The memory card slot is already habitually combined with the second SIM, and the volume control buttons are made of plastic. The device does not fatigue the hand at all, it is really pleasant to use. Moreover, thanks to the excellent ergonomics and compact size, the gadget will fit in any palm. Dimensions P9 Lite: height – 146.8 mm, thickness – 7.5 mm, width – 72.6 mm, weight – 147 g. The color – silver, gold, black and white.

Display at

The smartphone has got a 5.2-inch screen of optimal dimensions. The viewing angles of this IPS matrix are very good, and the Full HD resolution only adds to the believability. The picture is rich and moderately juicy. But the brightness is a little lacking, especially noticeable in the sun. Such a display is covered with 2.5D glass, which looks really impressive.

Hardware and performance

Since the P9 Lite seems to be a mid-range device, the processor is appropriate here. We are talking about the Kirin 650 chip, which is made using the latest 16nm process technology. The processor with eight cores can be overclocked to a frequency of 2000 MHz, and the Mali-T830 MP2 video chip is designed to accelerate the graphics.

In games, certain problems can only be observed in very demanding projects. If you slightly reduce the level of graphics, then even the coolest toys will go perfectly smoothly.


P9 Lite is equipped with a 13-megapixel camera. The user will be able to find a variety of shooting modes, where there are even professional tools. Not a bad level of photo detail is complemented by good color reproduction. Very fast focusing instantly finds the object in the frame. The device has a flash, but at night the pictures are somewhat noisy. Thanks to the capabilities of the 8-megapixel front camera you can always experiment with self-portraits.

  • Not enough memory.
