Huawei P8 Lite (2017) Price

Two years ago, Huawei built a range of phones that packed powerful specs but didn’t leave your wallet empty.

The P8 lite was one of those first phones to introduce superior performance at value prices. Since then, the world was introduced to a mid-range market that didn’t just settle for mediocre value.

Huawei P8 Lite (2017)

Right off the bat, it trumps its predecessor’s computing and gaming power, and we haven’t even talked about the bigger screen and better resolution yet (5.2 inches from 5 inches, and 1080p from 720p).

The 2017 Edition can also handle more multitasking with its superior 3GB ram, and now also features a fingerprint scanner for better security.

Oddly enough, Huawei decided to go for a 12 MP camera from the 13 MP the original had, but not to worry, the front camera is now 8MP instead of 5MP, which means it’s better for selfies!

Priced at around $257, this smartphone offers a fingerprint scanner, above average specs (RAM, processor and graphics card), and a pair of perfectly proficient front and back cameras.

Top that off with the 5.2 inches 1080 x 1920 IPS LCD display, 16GB internal memory (plus external SD card slot ), and a dual sim card slot, then you have a true successor to the very capable original.
