Don't buy the older lites, they use outdated 659. 710 is much much better(a bit better than snapdragon636). Even budget phones should have big cores in 2018.
Got this baby for my wife the other day. It's a gorgeous device. I'm really impressed with the camera setup, both front and back for this price. The SOC is plenty powerful for her needs (gpu is weak but she doesn't play games). Superb mid-ranger all around.
thisgu, 20 Sep 2018so....wheres the review?? that was just a specs list...When they say "in for review", it means they just got the phone and are working on the review, which will be published in a few days or weeks. Kind of a baitclick i guess..but still nice to know the review is coming soon

Why support a 2-3 year old flagship still relevant today and competitively priced, when folks will rather buy underpowered mid range with substantially inferior camera instead because it's a new release?

I tried this on *dozens* of YouTube videos, [each and] all of which had 1080p as one of the options and/or that I know [for a fact] the video was filmed in 1080p.
And sadly, the result was always the same. [The menu-option for changing the resolution of the YouTube-video, did not have "1080p" as one of the optiond, in the phone that had the notch.]
Trying to decide (I did this test a few months ago) between the Huawei Mate 10 Lite and the Huawei P20 Lite (which a friend recommended to me) and the Huawei Mate 20 Lite (which I'd have to wait for until it's released), I decided to do a test. I know that the notch covers [part of] full-screen videos (that's a given), but I wanted to see how much it changes the resolution of full-screen videos, (especially, those you are seeing on the YouTube app and/or on the Mobile-version of the YouTube.com website).
I went to the YouTube app and I opened a YouTube-video that I *know* is in 1080p (and that I know you can change the resolution on the video to its maximum of 1080p, not just on a friend's Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace, but also, on a friend's iPhone 6S Plus, a different friend's iPhone 7 Plus, a different friend's iPhone 7S Plus, a different friend's latest-version-of-the "Google Pixel" cellphone, a cousin's Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime, a 1080p-resolution-screen circa-2016 laptop computer, a circa-2018 [4K-resolution-screen with top-of-the-line dedicated graphics-card] Graphic-Design build-it-yourself (what in the 90s was called a "clone" [desktop computer]) desktop computer, on a Huawei Mate 10 Lite (which I *know* the resolution is *beyond* 1080p), and on a Huawei P20 Lite (which I *know* the resolution is *beyond* 1080p).
The result was: the Huawei P20 Lite, in the menu [of the YouTube-video] for changing the resolution, did not have "1080p" as one of the options.
All the other devices had "1080p" as one of the options in the menu [of the YouTube-video] for changing the resolution. (Even on the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, all the Samsung Galaxy cellphones, all the iPhones, and the latest-version-of-the "Google Pixel" cellphone). And each of every one of all the devices had all the latest software[/firmware] updates etcetera etcetera. (In case you were wondering).
Wonder does this have the night mode like honor8x, the cameras have same specs.
I've handled it in a store: the display was unevenly illuminated, not very bright at max and the Mate 20 lite does not support the Bluetooth LDAC codec, despite Oreo.

It is up to personal preference though, since I'm mainly a guy who likes flagships and upper midrange smartphones
So true! That's why I opted for a LG V20 over a Samsung Galaxy a8 2018
thisgu, 20 Sep 2018so....wheres the review?? that was just a specs list...Yeah not sure the point of this artlce..
If your budget is limited, then i would recommend you to buy 1-2 year old flagships rather than the latest mid-ranger. You see, flagships are feature-packed & don't miss out on any features & have the best cameras. Mid-rangers often miss out on some things & usually have mediocre cameras. Just my opinion.
