Chinese company Huawei has just launched the duo Huawei P8 and Huawei P8 Lite and although the Lite variant of the phone isn’t officially out yet, you can already pre-order it on GearBest. If you’re eyeing this mid-range smartphone that boasts with a neat metal design and good specs, there’s a good chance that you can get a pretty discount on it. When pre-ordering the Huawei P8 Lite on GearBest, just use coupon code P8LITE to be able to get the phone for only $206.99. That’s more than $30 off of the original pre-sale price of $240 on GearBest.
The Huawei P8 Lite is not the flagship device from the company this year, it is the smaller variant designed for those that prefer maneuverability on a smaller phone and a premium design. Under the hood, the Huawei P8 Lite comes with an octa core 1.2 GHz HiSilicon Kirin 620 64 bit CPU, backed by 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, with a microSD card slot available for additional expansion if necessary.
The display of the Huawei P8 Lite measures just 5 inches and comes with a resolution of 1280*720, but the screen has great brightness settings and it will be visible even in bright outdoor lights. Don’t expect a miracle, but the display that Huawei slapped on the P8 is pretty good for a mid-ranger.
The camera setup of the Huawei P8 Lite comprises of a 13 MP camera on the rear with an LED flash and a 5 MP selfie-camera on the front of the device. The rear camera can shoot 1080p video at 30 fps, and has a few software features built-in that will help with beautifying and editing shots. The smartphone gets a 2200 mAh battery and runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. 4G LTE completes the package and if add the metal design to the mix, the Huawei P8 Lite already looks like a great bargain, especially with a discount.
The pros of the Huawei P8 Lite are that it runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, has 4G LTE, an octa core processor and a pretty good camera. We can’t speak of battery life just yet, but sources say it’s is going to make it through two days of light use, which means we should expect the phone to conk out after a day of power usage, so to speak. Nonetheless, the Huawei P8 Lite seems like a great mid-ranger that is balanced and well-built and will offer a premium experience for anyone interested, even though the specs aren’t at flagship levels.
