What you get in the box:

I the box there is – the phone, an earphone (with a microphone), a charger (which supports quick charging) and we also got a back cover.

Design:

P30 lite is a very glossy phone. It comes in 3 colors: Black (Midnight black), White (Pearl white), Blue (Peacock Blue). The Peacock blue looks awesome, the other 2 colors also look very good. The back of the phone is very glossy and catches fingerprints pretty easily.

Back is made of glass, but the sides are plastic. On the left we have volume control and power button, there is nothing on the right side.

On the bottom, there is Speaker, Microphone, USB Type-C port, and Headphone Jack.

Sim trey is on the top, which also contains an SD card slot.

Display:

P30 lite has a 6.15 inch LTPS IPS LCD display. Resolution is1080 x 2312 px. It is a full-screen edge to edge display, with a very small bezel.

On top, there is a Waterdrop notch. The display is very bright and looks good.

 

Camera:

It has a decent camera. Nothing to shout about.

The front camera is 24MP, f/2.0 and rear camera is 48MP, f/1.8, 27mm, PDAF (Ultra-wide: 8MP, f/2.4, 17mm, fixed-focus. Depth sensor: 2MP, f/2.4. Video: [email protected]/60fps capture, EIS)

Performance:

Performance is ok, in general. But while using it daily we noticed some lag. The fingerprint scanner works ok.

Final Thoughts:

So, Should you buy a P30 lite?

Well, it is a decent phone and the pricing is satisfactory. In the price range, this is a good phone, so you can buy this. It gets the job done, but don’t expect anything more than that.

There are lots of phones from other companies in this price range. But, one thing we have to agree that, this phone looks really good.

So, a good looking phone with decent performance and good value for money.
