The Internet connection is made through a fast WLAN network that works in the 802.11ac standard in 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies, and through LTE as well (on both SIM cards). In addition, the smartphone has Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, FM radio, ably working navigation module… From physical sockets we have USB type C and the 3.5mm minijack.
The smartphone supports two SIM cards in the hybrid solution and it allows using LTE on both of them. With using the mobile network operator services we can set switching calls between cards. The quality itself is impeccable, but we cannot record calls.
Memory and efficiency
The smartphone has only one version of a built-in memory – 128GB. The user is left with around 104GB, the rest is taken by the system and preinstalled apps. By removing one SIM card we can place a memory drive – the smartphone supports microSD cards with a maximum capacity of 512GB.
Kirin 710 is responsible for the efficiency – this is a characteristic CPU placed in the middle-price shelf offer of the manufacturer. We can find it in numerous smartphones – very often in those that cost a hundred euro less… The CPU has four Cortex-A73 cores with 2.2GHz frequency and four Cortex-A53 cores with 1.7GHz frequency. The CPU is made in the 12 nm technology – and when it comes to power saving it is far from Kirin 980 (7 nm). The ARM Mali G51 GPU is responsible for graphics, in addition we receive 4GB of RAM. How does the smartphone work with such hardware? The system works fast, smooth and without any delays. Sometimes we can see some small lags, we need to wait for the keyboard to pop-up occasionally or when there are many apps working in the background. It does not have a tendency to heating up – it can have a slightly higher temperature while gaming, but it does not exceed 37 degrees. Its efficiency is more than enough for playing simple 2D and 3D games, it can deal with more demanding ones (with lower graphics settings). It does not change the fact that Huawei P30 Lite is not the most efficient model in its shelf price - Pocophone F1 has a 200% more power…
