The Kirin 620 version of the Huawei P8 Lite is now on sale, and at US$230, the product looks like an interesting buy.
The Huawei P8 Lite is, as the name states, the ‘lite’ version of the P8. While the P8 comes with a more powerful Kirin 930/935 SoC, the P8 Lite runs on the Kirin 620. To go with the SoC, the P8 Lite has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM on-board, so the phone is pretty much a mid-range device for those that don’t need the extra grunt of a 2015 flagship.
A 5-inch 1280 x 720 pixel screen adorns the front along with a 5 mega-pixel camera, while the rear has a 13 mega-pixel main shooter. Lastly, the P8 Lite has a 2200mAh battery, while Android 5.0 takes charge of the software department.
There’s many other Chinese phones available at US$230 and under, but there’s always a trade off that the makers make between quality and price. With this device, you might not get the specifications of say, a Ulefone Be Touch 2, but you’ll get the reassurance of Huawei manufacture.
