I've been using this phone for 2 months and it is great. I do have an issue with some of the apps, but it is fast as a flagship!! I use the phone 6+ hours a day and I charge the phone once in 2 days so that is a huuuge +. The camera is great. All in all I love this phone and I do recommend it.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2020for the P40 can't you download google and play store and so forth? or just clone the app... moreNo. Bummer. Im sending my P40 Lite back. Just got it today. Had no idea that couldn't get Google on it. What a crock. My old P20 was crushed under the car, so there is now no way to get my contacts and apps ported across as I'd used Google drive to back up. Total blow out. Fix this problem Huawei!

And after you manage to install it, it is working just perfectly. You doesn't avoid your garantion, no need for rooting it. And the OTA updates is working just perfectly. The only downside is that after factory restore you will have to go through the same process to get the play services back.
The phone is a no. Comes without Google apps, constantly makes it hard to alternatively install them. Also disables you to unlock or root. The phone is okay hardware wise but thats just about it, do not buy this or any future Huawei phone.

I've used both the Kirin 810 and the SD 765g.
In my opinion, the Kirin 810 is way more refined and efficient. I'm not sure if it is to do with optimization, but I've used 765g handsets (specifically oppo and realme and oneplus) and they stutter and lag sometimes and aren't very refined.
The Kirin 810 in my P40 lite/7i has yet to experience any issues and I prefer using it. Every thing is so smooth and stable.
Numlox, 23 Dec 2020hey guys,i was thinking on P40 Lite, P Smart 2021 or A51. Which one should i buy. Thanks :)Do yourself a favour and DO NOT get a Huawei with the Huawei App Gallery.
HUAWEI P40 Lite is a useless frustrating phone to use.
an absolute waste of money

Pics are blurry and you need to spend a good couple minutes before you find the correct angle for light.
On the whole - a useless frustrating phone to use.
an absolute waste of money

What is the an Android phone with no GOOGLE on it? Install a store app that doesn't have even 80% of Android apps available on Google play?? And your only alternative is to run essential Google apps via browser? Hell no!
If you wanna buy this phone... Go for it! It's a wonderful device crafted from the very finest materials for your pleasure. The camera is a light defying beast whose magnificence is only matched by the ease of use. The screen, though not amoled, feels like a portal into a long lost world of bliss. The network and connectivity of the device boast of remarkable download speeds and simply unbelievable upload speeds. The UX feels like it was handcrafted by UI gods for mankind to relish in. Truly... This whole phone is a bleeding edge tech at a price point that simply isn't fair on the manufacturer!
Utterly brilliant take on the modern smartphone by Huawei... The p40 lite doesn't feel lite at all, besides the times when it's floating effortlessly above the A31, A51, A71 and other comparable devices.
It's only a fair stretch to consider for a moment that Huawei have achieved something monumental with this device - this could very well be the turn of a new page for tech, heralded only by a fitting lineup such as this gem of a phone.
It's absolutely killing me that nothing works on Google. It may have a good camera, but it really makes no difference if I can't install the apps I need!
I HATE IT!\

Omar, 30 Dec 2020Please what is men's no Google services ?It means that the phone does not come with Google services installed. For example Google Play, Google Maps etc.
gymi, 26 Dec 2020Dipends if you need google Services. Please what is men's no Google services ?
Which one should I buy huawei p30 or p40 lite. I do not care about Google services, the main and selfie camera quality are the most important things. I heard that selfies on p30 sometimes are blurry. Are there blurry on p40 lite too?

i need an advice plus can i use a gmail on p40liteyes, definitely, you can add your gmail email accounts as IMAP, normally. 100% no problem.
the problem is with installing and running some google tools, like youtube, google keep,... as an "application" (if you install them, they don't work). but easily you can use them in browser.
I bought 64GB version a few days a go, and I am very pleased, it is very fast with excellent battery. The unavailability of google service is not a big deal, even for me as a computer engineer. I used Huawei store, and I almost could find anything I want. For exceptions, like whatsup, I could find installable file everywhere on internet, and manually install it. I don't live in Iran, but as far as I know, GooglePlay already is not available in Iran, and they have invented a counter part of it "cafebazaar.ir". You can use it too (like GooglePlay , it also provide you updating, when new version is available).
For some services like google map, there are many better options, like Yandex map. I found it a good opportunity to try disconnect my dependency to google. I even replaced "Google Keep" noting tool, with "Huawei notes", Google contacts with Huawei contacts.
very good! anyway future belongs to those Chinese and it is time to get ready!
