The EMUI dialer shares a common interface with the contacts app. There are no groundbreaking features here, but there isn't anything missing either.
The dual-SIM settings menu lets you rename cards, disable them from software, and select which one does calls or data by default. The interface leads us to believe that while 4G may be limited to just one card, both get 3G connectivity in addition to 2G, which the specs don't indicate.
The interface is not ideal in that dual SIM settings are in one menu, while the mobile networks are in a different one. You may need to do a little bit of back-and-forth to set things up precisely to your liking - say, to limit the primary card to 3G. 'Primary' as in the default card that gets 4G connectivity - you choose that in dual SIM settings. Then in the mobile networks section you get to pick the preferred network type, but only for this primary card - the other one makes do with the rest of the available radios.
Just like the P10 and P9, the P10 Lite has a pretty powerful loudspeaker at its disposal. As expected, the dedicated bottom-mounted speaker turned out to be the quite powerful and produced a Very Good score in our loudspeaker test. It has a clean and rich sound output, and we give Huawei credit where it's due.

Huawei offers a pretty rich default app package. The Health app is great. It tracks steps and calculates calories burnt, but can also supposedly count the number of floors you've climbed.
A neat Compass app is available as well. It has level function and AR mode with live coordinates.
You also have a ton of basic tools preloaded, including a proper file manager, calendar app, notes, weather, sound recorder, and flashlight.
