The P20 Lite is not a new phone – it was released in 2018. Other budget handsets from then weren’t very big. It stretches 5.84 inches across. It’s pretty thin, though. Its dimensions are 148.6 mm x 71.2 mm x 7.4 mm.
It’s lightweight. We’re fans of heavy phones as they feel more premium. It comes in at 145 grams.
It’s ergonomic. You probably don’t need us to tell you this, just take a look at its sides. They are curved well.
You can pick it up in three different colour choices. Our favourite is the Klein Blue – you don’t usually see handsets in this shade.
Looking across its side, you’ll find a microSD slot and 3.5 mm headphone jack. We’ll touch on its expandable storage later on.

There is an IPS LCD panel on its front. If you’ve read our reviews before, you’d know that it isn’t the most vibrant. If the Lite came with a larger screen, its display would be more immersive. Unfortunately, Huawei has disappointed us.
Its screen-to-body ratio isn’t the best, but it’s certainly not bad. You’re getting an 80.5% one. However, it’s decently sharp. How do you feel about a 1080 x 2280 pixel front?
As it’s so thin, it’s no surprise that a large battery wasn’t placed. It has a 3000 mAh unit inside. It is non-removable, which is a shame. To charge it, you’ll be making use of a USB-C port. An 18 W fast charger would have to be placed. The P20 Lite takes around 2 hours to fully charge.
The chipset inside of it is the Kirin 659. It’s a mid range processor. Out of the box, the phone runs Android 8. You can upgrade it to Android 9 but not 10. This is disappointing as Android 11 is just around the corner.
What about ROM? It comes with either 32, 64, or 128 GB of space. RAM wise, it’s good. You can pick it up with 4 GB of memory. The storage variant you choose will influence the price you’ll pay. There is a MicroSD slot, in case you’re wondering. You can expand its storage to almost double the specified amounts.
Let’s talk about its camera. There is a dual set-up on its rear. It consists of a 16 MP primary sensor and a 2 MP depth lens. They don’t take the most vibrant or colour accurate shots. They’re especially not very good in low-light. The final nail in the coffin is the fact that you’re not getting LED flash on its rear.
On its front, a dual set-up is present as well. It consists of 16 MP and 24 MP wide lenses. Unfortunately, they don’t keep you Instagram ready.
Here’s what you came for:
The mobile costs around Rs.42,000 island-wide. Do we think it’s worth the price? Not really.
