Huawei P40 Lite is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless The design is nice. Phone feels comfortable. Battery life is stellar. I have the green version! But the phone is useless. For making and receiving calls it's ok but apart from that you should look elsewhere. The app gallery is horrible. Hardly any apps. I don't understand why they could not include google apps on it. It's supposed to be an Android (google) phone but with no google apps. Money wasted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful experience so far I'm sorry but this phone is awful. I'm returning it as soon as I can. NONE of my mobile banking apps work. NONE! It's so tedious having to log in via the browser each and every time just to do something as simple as checking my balance. All other phones give access to mobile banking apps. This is such a let down. The same with YouTube. It can only be used via the browser. This is awful. The sound quality through the speaker is tinny. The camera is ok for photographs but videos are god awful. Very bad quality and jittery/jerking, unstable. Battery life is great though, but that isn't enough to keep me with this phone. No access to google is driving me mad. Half of the apps/games manually downloaded from the other app stores don't even work half of the time, especially the games. Someone in the previous reviews mentioned no gyroscope, and it's true. There isn't one, so you can forget about the games that might require it. For the £279.99 price tag, it is not worth the hassle, because that's what this phone is. Hassle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Huawei phone Just swapped my p20 lite to p40 lite, honestly way better than I thought. The battery really suprised me still remaining 53% after using a whole day. Also it's easy to switch to my new phone by an app called phone clone, just around 15 mins transfer process migrated all of my data. Most of the apps can be copied and work well. I can't stop watching social media and streaming videos with it for all day. Brilliant phone for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, Great Price Recently, I have brought the P40 lite. With a budget of around £300, I had to find something with a good camera, as I’m an avid Instagram and TikTok user, and something that can last me the day and night. I was very split between the Samsung A51 and the Huawei P40 lite as they’re both good looking devices for the price. After a lot of review reading, I finally decided on the Huawei P40 lite. It had a fast charge, charging to 40% in 15 minutes which means I can get ready in the morning and it’ll be fully charged. Plus, it was £40 cheaper than the Samsung. With all my requirements met at a cheaper price, it was an easy choice. I wasn’t too worried that I wouldn’t have google on my phone, as long as I get the apps I needed. In the end, I read a great article on how to get all the apps I wanted by using MoreApps and the Huawei AppGallery already has TikTok so I’m happy. The camera is of great quality and I love how it can take great pictures even in the dark. Plus, the battery does last me the entire day and night. Overall, perfect purchase! I’m glad I made the right choice.
