The smartphone has a minijack, which is always an advantage, unfortunately it is not the best. After plugging in earphones the sound is rather quiet and average when it comes to the quality. Using Huawei Histen does not help that much. I have similar feelings towards the external speaker. In addition its location makes it easy to muffle it while holding the smartphone horizontally. The presence of an FM radio can be an advantage for many people.
Photos and video
The main camera consist of three units: the main sensor has 48 Mpx and an f/1.8 lens. It is supported by 8-megapixel camera that offers a wide angle (120 degrees) and a 2-megapixel lens for measuring depth. The main camera offers more megapixels than the rest of flagships from the P30 family – but it is a well-known fact that the number of megapixels not necessarily translates to the quality of photos. Those taken with Huawei P30 Lite look great on the screen of the smartphone, but they lose details when they are viewed on a monitor. However, in its class this is still a good camera, though it cannot hold its ground to the one placed in P30 Pro - even despite the difference in resolution.
The app is simple in usage and it has numerous work modes. There is a dedicated night mode (though effects are not as impressive as in more expensive models, night time photos are rather average or even of a poor quality) and the possibility to use the wide angle (then the resolution is limited to 8 megapixels). The last one will work in good lighting, in night-time photos they lack details, they have a lot of noises and it is best not to show them.
The selfie camera has 32 megapixels and an f/2.0 brightness lens. It is supported by AI, in addition we can use different effects, lighting modes and beautifying. There is a portrait mode with background blurring and AR stickers. The camera does a bit worse when there is a strong light source behind the photographed person. And here are photos taken with it in practice:
The smartphone records videos in the maximum quality of Full HD with 60 frames per second – for many the lack of 4K can be a big disadvantage.
