About the Phone
The robustness of the Huawei P Smart can come as a surprise for a lot of people, but many other features in it can make eyebrows rise:
– Sufficient storage – 50GB out of 64GB
– Android 9 Compatible
– Decent Cameras with (13MP+2MP) back camera and (8MP) Fixed-Focus Front Face camera in the notch
– Plastic, yet Pricy
– Mono Speaker
– Easy scratches
Overall, the Huawei P Smart is a good phone with some handy features and its unique transition colour design. But, it is not worth buying if you’re looking for something that gives you more for less! And, if you’re looking for the same features of the Huawei P Smart in a phone, you can get hold of the Honor 10 Lite at a much better deal!
The Huawei P Smartphone has a 6.21-inch 1080 x 2340 screen with a pixel density of 415 pixels per inch. It also features a tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio, a prominent notch at the top and a narrow bezel below the screen. This gives the phone a sleek look, but not the best of it! The plastic case has a high-gloss and transition, but it still feels like plastic making it lack the oomph in its overall design. But it has more to it than what appears from the outside; the Huawei P Smart has generous gross storage of 64GB out of which 50GB is available for the people to use. Also, this phone has a battery power of 3400mAh units, which can further be optimized.
The fact that this could have been a great phone five years ago when the Honor 10 Lite didn’t exist is something that makes this phone a mid-ranger now with a Kirin 710 chipset coupled with 3GB RAM – something essential but again easily forgettable!
The P Smart has an 8mm thickness and 162g (significantly lighter) body specs that are also lighter on the bezels and can be easily managed with one hand. There are a lot of colour options present for the phone (like the Midnight Blue, Aurora Blue and Turquoise Blue) – quite distinct gradient colour finish at the ends; it makes an excellent overall appeal. The notification led is housed below the screen, and then at the bottom of the phone, there’s a mono speaker, a micro USB and a headphone jack. Because of its glossy rear, the Huawei P Smart can gain easy smudges and fingerprints from a moment’s handling. And since this phone
doesn’t come with a case in its package so, it’s better if you get one immediately as you buy the phone to preserve the susceptibility of the phone’s rear surface.
The P Smart has a 6.21 inches IPS LCD with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 which is long but not as wide as it would have been if the traditional standards of the 16:9 aspect ratio was kept unaltered.
The quality of display has a 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ panel and delivers 85 per cent of the NTSC colour gamut. The settings are set to the ‘vivid’ mode in default but can be manually adjusted according to the comfort of the user. The phone lacks a bit of contrast as the blacks can look more like dark greys or even lighter when the phone is viewed at the off-axis – which can be a bit annoying.
Having a TÜV Rheinland-certified Eye Comfort that can shift the colour temperature to warm for easy viewing in low light and the contrary when out in the sun is another feature that most of the phones do not possess at this price range.
The Kirin 710 processor is perfectly equipped to deliver your daily needs on your smartphone and more like natural responsiveness and navigation. For those who love to play 3D games and others, the Kirin 710 doesn’t break a sweat if you do so for anything lesser than an hour. But for the hardcore gamers, the P Smart lacks the core strength in its processor for the longer and smoother gaming experience. According to reports, the P Smart registers an average amount of 21fps in the levelling 1080p Manhattan output.
The P Smart offers an excellent call clarity, but because of the slim bezel and notch, the earpiece placement had to be placed against the top of the P Smart’s frame that makes the incoming sound seem to emerge from the back or head of the phone; rather than directly into the ear.
The P Smart brings decent hardware and a large battery (in this case 3400mAh) under one roof and has improved longevity compared to that of the last year’s P Smart. The battery could last for 12 hours 16 mins straight without charging – this still can be a manageable deal since what it loses in the battery life section, it makes up in its performance features.
Hands-down the Huawei P Smart was one of the most-awaited handsets that you can get at 16,500/- till the Honor 10 Lite was released. The P Smart has a few features that can be a right choice for people who are looking for a decent, lag-free yet stylish smartphone; but can prove to be a deal breaker because of its higher price range than that of the similarly featured smartphones.
