Product Description

Huawei P9 has taken the market by storm and is one of the best selling Android phones in New Zealand. Huawei P9 Lite is the budget version in the P9 range. It features many of the same powerful features found on the flagship Huawei P9 model such as a fingerprint sensor. However, it lacks a dual camera. This isn't a big issue for many consumers as the rear 13 MP camera still offers really good value for a budget phone. The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP. In addition, the camera app that accompanies the camera is easy to use and offers loads of useful photo features like automatic face detection, geo tagging, and even HDR touch focus. 

Fans of the Huawei brand will appreciate the look & build of this new P9 Lite model. Despite the promise of ample screen space thanks to its 146.8 mm x 72.6 mm x 7.5 mm dimensions, the P9 Lite has managed to maintain its light weight. At only 147 g, itís still one of the most favourite phones for its sleek design and easy handling. 

As far as Android Smartphones go, the Huawei P9 Lite lives up to its more popular competitors. The phone is completely compatible with the user-friendly Android OS which comes at a standard version of 6.0 (aka the Marshmallow update). The octa-core CPU also makes light work of navigation, making it super easy & fast to use. 

This phone comes with a standard storage of 16GB. That may not be much to start with, but a micro SD card of up to 256 GB will transform your phone into an excellent storage device for photos, videos and work files. Because apps run so smoothly, youíll be tempted to load on a whole bunch. Feel free to do so, because the Huawei P9 Lite functions well off its 3 GB RAM (some models also come with a 2GB RAM). 

Huawei P9 Lite is available in black, white and gold colours and is a definite winner in the world of smartphones. 

A newer model Huawei P10 Lite 4GB 32GB was released in March 2017.
