I have this phone for about a month.After a month of usage I have to say that phone is realy great,camera is ok and battery life is amazing BUT i have two problems.One is "SD card error" message from time to time.Second more anoying is "ghost keyboard" on my screen after I use it for a while and "ghost" of previous application I used in the next one.Those "ghosts" last for about 10-20 minutes and after that they dissapear and everything is normal again.I dont know why is this happening because it is an LCD display so it is not "screen burning".It is "display retention" but I ont know how to solve this.It is not permanent,it is temporary and I dont want to give my phone to service because I dont want they to open my phone and change my display because of that minor issue.Anyone had the same problem?Advice?
This phone is the best I have ever had. Stunning display, beautiful colors, fast, responsive, no lag. I have the 4GB RAM version and its more than enough for me. I will give my phone to my sister for a few days so I did a backup and a factory reset.
Never trust your sister ha ha :DD
I bought my phone for 2/3 of the original price for my TV, internet and mobile 4G subscription and they gave this price.
I recommend this phone to everyone..
Update: SD card now works perfectly and doesn't fail any more (touch wood). There was no phone update or anything but for some reason its OK now. I'm happy now :)
Otherwise i still like the phone. Works really well, is fast, has nice big screen, camera is good enough for me, battery is super good (2 days +), has most current features of other flagships (face unlock for example).
There are however couple of bad points: face unlock doesn't always work as i would want it to work and can be annoying; charging takes ages (almost 3 hours to full capacity), but i guess its no big deal if you just charge it at night; occasional crash in google feed; beauty mode is annoying to me and I cant see where to turn it off permanently; still on Android 8 and unknown when will be updated; glass on the phone is not Gorilla glass (I believe) so can get damaged quite easily; no case or screen protector included in the box.
In addition I didn't get a case for it at first and its more slippery than I expected and I already dropped it and slightly damaged the screen. So if you do get the phone - get a case for it straight away!!!
Dario202, 13 Feb 2019Huawei mate 20 lite or honor 8x? Who has better camera?Imo same quality only difference is that M20Lite have eis in 1080p video. Keep in mind also that M20Lite have usb type C. At least to me, very important.
Suffers from screen dimming like many other Huawei phones. Camera is not that good. Maybe software idk but... Still on Oreo. Sometimes gives sd card error. When Bluetooth is on wi-fi didnt work. Sometimes ghost images, more often keyboard one, appears.
No development at all. Huawei phones are like forbidden for developers. That mean after year, when from Huawei stop doing updates for him, this phone will die. That'sbad thing's.
Good everyday speed. Apps works fine. Good battery life. More than 7hrs screen on. If you're not that demanding camera is ok. On day/bright conditions. Big screen, easy to watch videos, web etc. Nice feel in hand. Feels like premium phone. The good ones.
I just bought this phone - Great performance and even better value.
I also have this phone, and I´m not getting issues with it. I think it's perfect to me.
So, for now I'm waiting for Android P. I have high expectations when my phone will run the new Android OS.

On Firmware Finder appear 150 which is 9.0 Pie. I think soon they will start to update all the regions.

If the price is close, better to take Mate 20 Lite. Yesterday i playing with one Nokia 7.1 and must say its a gorgeous phone also. Pure android and decent display. You may consider it too. Same value.
My sd card give error very often. Its a phone problem because i insert it on my wife phone(Xiaomi Mi8) for a month and dont give any errors. Put it again on my Mate 20 Lite and on first week give that "corrupted sd card" error. Huawei must solve that issue.
I'm supossed o buy a phone this friday and i dont know which one, Huawei mate 20 lite, Samsung Galaxy J8 2019 or a Honor 8X, which one is better and why or do they all have errors?
Had it only for a week, but i must say i am impressed with it. Look and feel is great, takes good photos, amazing battery life, not flagship but still is very fast and never struggles with any tasks. The only bad points I can say is that video is not that great. Also my inserted memory card keeps on failing in the phone even though it never failed inside HTC M9. otherwise its a great phone. Lots of quality phone for not that much of money!!
