Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Huawei P Smart Z

Huawei P Smart Z's size

The Huawei P Smart Z is 3.0 inches (77.3 mm) wide, 6.4 inches (163.5 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (8.8 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 P Smart Z, it weighs about 196.8 oz (196.8 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

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

Huawei P Smart Z's screen

The Huawei P Smart Z has a 6.59 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 P Smart Z is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of Huawei P Smart Z

The Huawei P Smart Z has an extremely high processing power of 2.2GHz+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 P Smart Z 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 P Smart Z 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 P Smart Z's storage capacity

The Huawei P Smart Z 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 P Smart Z 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.

The camera function of Huawei P Smart Z

The Huawei P Smart Z 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 P Smart Z is equipped with a rather powerful 16 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 P Smart Z

The Huawei P Smart Z has a battery with a quite large capacity of 4000 mAh. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Huawei P Smart Z is very good and will no doubt satisfy all your needs. You won't have to worry about the battery even when you use the phone to watch videos or play games for hours on end.

Overall assessment of Huawei P Smart Z

The Huawei P Smart Z is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
