What customers say about "Display"
Huawei P Smart SIM-Free Smartphone
  • Good quality photos, screen quality is HD and reasonable quality.
  • Nice screen and display, no excess of bloatware.
  • The display is very bright and pictures (and videos) look sharp and well detailed with accurate colour reproduction.
  • Fantastic screen that is easily seen even in bright sunshine, the automatic brightness works like a charm, so this is a first for me of the many smartphones I have struggled to see outside.
  • The screen is bright clear and large, ideal for my massive hands, there are lots of preloaded apps.
Honor 9 Lite Dual SIM, 32 GB Smartphone
  • Display looks dead in colours, I don't know why may be quality of display or some sort of film which is between glass and LCD itself.
  • Great display, battery, performance and camera is pretty decent for the price.
  • Crisp sharp display play my games by rockstar so good nick for the price.
  • I'm not a heavy gamer on phones. For my needs it's perfect. Quick, responsive. Very beautiful display.
  • This would have been a great phone if the display didn't start to discolour down the lefthand side after only a few months, phone has been kept in a case and never dropped.

What customers say about "Processor"
Huawei P Smart SIM-Free Smartphone
  • It is also quite light and processor is fast, with loads of phone memory for apps.

  • The 3GB RAM combined with the kirin 659 octa core processor contributed to a smooth performance.

  • A month later, the processor began to get very hot when opening any application.

What customers say about "Camera"
Huawei P Smart SIM-Free Smartphone
  • You could easily get a printable photo and as long as there is enough light, the quality of the pictures should suffice.
  • The 13 megapixel camera is quick and pictures look great too.
  • Camera is good, it really quick in response to open up the up and downloading stuff.
  • The camera is really good and straightforward to use and very similar to the iPhone.
  • Yes, it does have 2 outer cameras, but at 13MP and 2MP, it will be hard to get good quality shots.
Honor 9 Lite Dual SIM, 32 GB Smartphone
  • Camera - very impressed with the back camera (13M) and AMAZED at the ability to control it in "pro" mode. You can set everything from ISO, to shutter speed of 8 seconds! Incredible.
  • The camera is better than you'd expect at this price, it has all the features you could conceivably want etc.
  • The camera so far hasn't let me down and has produced some good quality shots.
  • Camera in some situation it's not sharp enough.
  • Terrible camera, don’t get this phone if you care about your photo quality. Absolutely terrible in indoor lighting.

What customers say about "Features"
Huawei P Smart SIM-Free Smartphone
  • Good battery can last all day even in constant FB use.
  • Decent call quality and apps. Responsive and easy to use phone. Has security features with finger print scanner. The built in step feature is a useful app.
  • Has the latest android operating system. If you are looking for reasonably priced Android phone that has most of the features of the premium ranges then this is def worth a look at.
  • Incredibly fast, touch system very accurate, same as finger print reader.
  • Dual SIM only works if no micro SD card is used at the same time.
  • The voice assistant, like in many phones, doesn’t work very well, sometimes it doesn’t understand what you want.
Honor 9 Lite Dual SIM, 32 GB Smartphone
  • The phone has now received the android Oreo 8.0 update and is working great!
  • Very pleased with the product. This phone gives the option of face and fingerprint recognition.
  • Fingerprint recognition is first class, always gets it right.
  • The only bad thing up to now is that instead of a push button on the back it is a fingerprint touch pad and can't be used as an easy control for the torch which was brilliant on dark nights.
  • Only complaint would be the fingerprint sensor is very sensitive. A sweaty finger won't work to unlock it.

What customers say about "Power"
Huawei P Smart SIM-Free Smartphone
  • I found myself getting 2 days easily from this phone. With Oreo’s recent battery management tools, it is now super easy to keep track of high power consuming apps to close them.
  • However the battery life is really very good, however I don't use my phone for social media or watching videos, except on the bbc news.
  • The battery life is poor. There is however, a power save mode which seems quite effective.
  • The battery can last her over two days and it has still yet to give her any problems.
  • While the battery size was ideal, I was slightly disappointed that there was no quick charge functionality included here.
Honor 9 Lite Dual SIM, 32 GB Smartphone
  • I'm not the biggest phone users, but it's 9pm and the battery is at 61%.
  • I love super battery saving mode as I am not a huge internet user with the phone so I find it last approx three day after a full charge.
  • Battery life gets about 2 days with normal use (using auto brightness has really helped) I watch a lot of Netflix and Youtube etc and chrome cast it.
  • Long lasting charge with micro USB charger - was very satisfied with how long battery lasted despite +++ use.
  • Battery life is good - I charge mine every second night (but I'm not permanently glued to my phone like many people are!).
