Huawei P20 lite (2019) and Huawei P30 size comparison. Which to choose?

The size of the body has a big influence on the ease of carrying and one-handed operation. The narrower the width, the easier it is to firmly grasp and hold, but you also have to take into account the device's thickness. Also, if the width and height are smaller, its easier to operate one-handed since its easier to extend your fingers. On the contrary, if the width and height are large, it's difficult to fit in your pocket and is bulky even when put in a bag, and portability is impaired.

The Huawei P20 lite (2019) has a width of 29.9 in (75.9 mm), a length of 62.6 in (159.1 mm), and a thickness of 3.3 in (8.3 mm).Also, the Huawei P30 has a width of 28.1 in (71.4 mm), a length of 58.7 in (149.1 mm), and a thickness of 3.0 in (7.6 mm).
