The P30 Lite offers a modern design, a great build quality, and an IPS panel with wide viewing angles and accurate colors. The cameras, particularly the 24 MP front-facing camera, are more than just adequate for its class. However, there are too many often minor shortcomings ruining the overall impression, particularly when taking Huawei's MSRP into consideration.
As it stands, if you place a serious premium on design and imaging go for it. If however value for money is your main motivation, you'd be better off opting for the significantly cheaper Realme 3 Pro or Redmi Note 7.
The P30 Lite is the most affordable of the three P30-series smartphones, which should give it some appeal. Rather than cut back across the board to hit its price target, Huawei has delivered an attractive industrial design and an above-average camera system, at the expense of screen technology and battery capacity. If you're happy with these trade-offs, the Huawei P30 Lite is a good buy.
Disappointingly, Huawei's P30 Lite is a bit of a mixed bag. If you look past its lavish looks and triple camera array, you'll find a phone that doesn't quite match up against its rivals, even if it does represent a significant saving on its P-series stablemates. But the biggest problem for the P30 Lite is that the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is even better and costs just a little bit more
Despite my issues with the battery life and the peculiarities with the Camera, especially in Video mode, it is still a great phone, with a lovely screen, lovely build, takes gorgeous stills and is performant. I still want to get it out and show people because it looks so pretty, it's a conversation starter, and that's cool.
Select 'Pay Monthly' if you're looking to get the Huawei P30 Lite as part of a monthly contract with minutes, data and texts. Alternatively, choose 'No Contract' if you prefer to buy the Huawei P30 Lite SIM Free or on Pay as You Go.
