The Asian manufacturer surprised us by presenting the Huawei Mate 20 Lite, the decaffeinated version of Mate 20, which will be presented very soon. Now we bring you a complete analysis of the Huawei Mate 20 Lite where we shed all the secrets of the new member of the Mate family that stands out for its attractive design and powerful hardware.
We are talking about a phone that arrives on the market to fight to win the first position in the mid-range sector by offering a series of elements, such as its facial recognition system, which sets it apart from its main competitors. Without more, let’s see the analysis of the Huawei Mate 20 Lite.
Huawei Mate 20 Lite: design
As always we will start talking about the design of the new member of the Mate family. In this case we find a phone with fairly restrained dimensions despite the diagonal of its screen. All this is thanks to the 18: 9 aspect of its panel that allows you to take advantage of much of the front thanks to having a few frames.
And is that with 1 5.8 x 7.5 x7.6 mm and a weight of 172 grams, the terminal is quite manageable. Also keep in mind that its finishes in tempered glass and metal provide the Huawei Mate 20 Lite a truly premium look and a very pleasant touch. The terminal is well balanced and held correctly in the hand. Going through the different aspects of the design we will start talking about the right side of the device. At this point we find the button on and off the terminal in addition to the volume control buttons. All these keys offer a more than correct route and a good resistance to pressure.
While the upper and left sides are completely clean, we can see that at the bottom we find three elements: the 3.5 mm jack for connecting headphones, an element that we thank Huawei, the speaker that integrates the terminal and a port USB type C to charge the Huawei Mate 20 Lite. To this we must add a front part occupied mainly by the phone’s screen and that is broken by the huge notch that integrates the device. While it is true that this size is due to the dual front camera system, it breaks the aesthetics of the terminal a bit.
Anyway we can say that in general terms the terminal is very well built with noble materials that give the Huawei Mate 20 Lite a really attractive appearance and that make it one of the best options if you want a fairly cheap Android phone with a design pro.
Huawei Mate 20 Lite: technical characteristics
As for the hardware that mounts the terminal, say it debuts a Kirin 710 processor along with 4 GB of RAM, in some markets will come a model with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. As it could not be otherwise we can expand the memory through its slot for micro SD cards. The new processor of Huawei offers a really good performance, allowing running any game or application without major problems.
We have been testing the terminal and the results have been really good. The phone has performed perfectly so we can rest assured that it will surpass the expectations of any user. The same goes for the Huawei Mate 20 Lite battery, with 3,750 mAh with fast charging system, and that offers a really good autonomy.
To this we must add a surprising connectivity: Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, FM Radio, USB Type C, 3.5mm Jack, in short a very complete phone and you will not miss any element. And what about its screen, consisting of a 6.3-inch IPS panel that offers really good quality. With its panoramic format and an 81 percent frontal on screen, the quality of the content we reproduce will leave a great taste in our mouths. While it is true that the speaker sounds a bit low, we are facing a terminal that will become one of the best options to enjoy multimedia content.
Huawei Mate 20 Lite: camera
Finally we will talk about the section of the Huawei Mate 20 Lite camera. In this regard say that with artificial intelligence the results have disappointed us and, while it is true that the camera without activating AI works better, the results have disappointed us. On paper we have a dual camera system on the back formed by a first lens of 20 + 2 megapixels with focal 1.8 that gives us a very good catch, especially with HDR mode, but that is behind other models, especially if we consider its price.
Especially in poorly lit environments and night photography is where we see that it is a bit behind its competitors. We see how the noise appears in this type of photographs so, although it is a large terminal, we have been a bit disappointed in this aspect. Finally, the front camera has a 24-megapixel dual camera system that achieves pretty good results and will delight those who love selfies.
Ultimately the Huawei Mate 20 Lite is a great terminal, we are disappointed by its AI when taking pictures and the speaker that sounds really low but counting that it costs less and that we will probably get some interesting offer with a telephone operator we have a solution very to take into account within the range in which it is located.
