We've conducted a detailed review of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Huawei Mate 10 Lite

Huawei Mate 10 Lite's size

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite is 3.0 inches (75.2 mm) wide, 6.1 inches (156.2 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (7.5 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, it weighs about 164 oz (164 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of Huawei Mate 10 Lite

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has an extremely high processing power of 2.36GHz+1.7GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Huawei Mate 10 Lite's storage capacity

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Huawei Mate 10 Lite is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Huawei Mate 10 Lite's screen

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has a 5.9 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of Huawei Mate 10 Lite

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite is equipped with a rather powerful 13 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

The battery performance of Huawei Mate 10 Lite

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has a relatively large battery with 3340 mAh. The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of Huawei Mate 10 Lite

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
