Nowadays budget-friendly phones are in trend as they attract a lot of customers. All the companies are making budget-friendly phones now. Today the Chinese giant Huawei is following this path and announced the Huawei P8 lite, a younger brother to the Huawei P8.
The term “budget-friendly” does not mean that the phone`s specifications are low-end. It offers pretty good specifications for its price point. The Phone sports a plastic body as compared to P8 which sports a full Metal-body. It has the same rectangular design surrounded by the chrome frame. The power and volume buttons are on the right side and are easily reachable. All the ports are at their regular positions, 3.5 mm headphone jack on top and micro-USB on the bottom along with single speaker and microphone.
The phone also has Qualcomm`s tru-octa core Snapdragon 615 processor paired with 2GB RAM as most of the budget-friendly phones are consisting of these days. The phone has 16GB onboard storage which can be further expanded via a micro-SD card up to 32GB. The battery is a 2200 mAh non – removable which can be a down-side for some people. The Screen is a 5- inch 720p display resulting in a pixel density of 294ppi. The phone is running Android Kitkat with Emotion-UI on top, even after several months of Android Lollipop’s launch. In optics department the phone consists of a 13-megapixel rear facing camera and a 5-megapixel camera for Selfie lovers. Huawei P8 is priced at $250 and is available at all the retail stores as well as Huawei’s own website.
In my opinion, the phone boasts pretty decent specifications for its price but for me KitKat is now old and there are other choices available in the market which offer better specs. For people who want to consider their choices they can look into Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 and Asus Zenfone 2.
