The camera is suppose to be good but the image turn out to be quite bad. Immediately sold it away. Disappointing phone.
Alexandra, 04 Sep 2018Before Huawei P9 lite, I had another smarthphone, which had 4000 ma battery and 2 gb ram. Even... moreBefore my P9 Lite 2/16 I've used Sam's Galaxy S4 9515 Value Edition. I must confirm that P9 Lite system performance is much below Galaxy :( It freezes to death when loaded with only 3 apps: Google Maps, Skype & Yanosik (some local trafic monitor used in eastern EU). I can see messages of dyig MAPS or other applications which are unable to work on tjis sytem like it was 1 CPU old crappy tablet from 8 years based on Allwiner A13!!! It's even much worse than my wife's Doogee X5 Pro 2/16. But this is nothing compared to constant lack of FLASH mem. This crappy device has 16GB only on paper... I've installed only 383MB! of apps and I use 16GB SD card for all my stuff (photo, app data & etc). This rubbish device is nearly as low as 1GB (ONE GB!!!) free space left from 16GB!!! This is amazingly crappy system design. Its hard to imagine how such a good HW can be messed up with a really BAD system implementation.
Before Huawei P9 lite, I had another smarthphone, which had 4000 ma battery and 2 gb ram. Even though Huawei P9 lite has 3 gb ram, you can't feel it, it works worse than the old one. The battery lasts less than a day, even without wifi, internet or any applications. The display has faded colors and the luminosity practically inexistent. The pictures and videos where I use flash appear as though the light reflects in something. I gave up any applications, because the battery would last a few hours tops. And even so, I have to charge it by the evening. On the old phone,the battery would last 2 days with wifi and internet permanently on, music, apps, games, you name it. Not impressed with it, really dissapointed.
This is by far the best budget phone I have ever had. The camera has astounding quality, the display is very bright and clear, battery life is decent enough and the phone itself is very beautiful and thin. The hardware's speed is incredible even after two years of owning the phone and I would suggest it to anyone
Worst phone I ever had. It's too thin, not ergonomic, some apps freeze or just force close (though I have the newest updates and keep it clean). GPS is sometimes not working and sometimes it deletes my offline maps in Google Maps.
Also, sometimes it can't recognize some Wi-Fi networks or the signal is too weak. My old G630 would have full Wi-Fi signal working perfectly, while this one would have just one line of signal. Wi-Fi would work very slow. Both phones were at the same place catching the same signal.
I fortunately broke it today and don't even feel bad for it. Going to buy something better.
Please, has anyone heard the P9 lite 2016 is likely to receive upgrade to Oreo? Already the 2017 model has been receiving upgrades. I hope they do.
In AnTuTu, specification on my phone is for CPU:
Snapdragon 617.... how, i think is a Kirin 650 ??? What is this, what is correct ?
