Huawei P9 Lite overview
Packed up inside an alluring metallic frame and an embedded square fingerprint slot on its back, P9 Lite has got a good aesthetics, the same aesthetics as its pricier sibling P9. However, the sibling surpassed this device in many respects. Bearing a Leica’s 12.3 MP dual camera on its back when this device remains stuck with 13MP Sony IMX 214 f/2.0 camera is the premium. Huawei’s in-house SoC, HiSilicon Kirin 650 powers the device, which is an octa-core processor. The octa-core chipset has an inbuilt four cores of Cortex A53 that works at 2.0 GHz speed and another four cores Cortex A53 that works on 1.7 GHz speed. On the display, Huawei P9 Lite inherits a 5.2” IPS LCD screen, which supports Full HD resolutions. Packed with a pixel density of 424 PPI, the display looks great. However, the lack of screen protection has made the device crack-prone and scratch-prone.
