This smartphone is perfectly fine as an everyday blower, even up to the challenges of online gaming and capturing good-looking photos of your wretched offspring. The main problem is that it’s not really much different to a whole load of recent Honor handsets.

Common Questions


Huawei released the P20 Lite on March 21, 2018.


The P20 Lite price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Huawei P20 Lite prices from around the web here on The Informr.


Huawei backs up the P20 Lite with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your P20 Lite has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Huawei support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Huawei's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop. You can also connect with others in The Informr Community Forum to find and share answers to questions.

A nice design and rather good specs

from Tech Advisor

Huawei’s P20 Lite is a good mid range smartphone. We like how lightweight and elegant it is, and has a very similar premium design to its more expensive P20 siblings. Plus, thanks to its facial recognition feature you can unlock the phone in one instant, another example of a high end feature making its way into the mid-range.
