Huawei P20 Lite, a pathetic try to be iPhone XDale Davies ▼ | July 6, 2018
Huawei P20 Lite has some impressive specifications on paper. But it is such an obvious iPhone copycat that it should be banned.
Smartphone We can't believe this...
But it goes further than that. Having a glass back panel does give the P20 Lite a premium look but as is the case with this design aspect, it is a fingerprint magnet. And, of course, the first thing that comes to mind when you mention a glass back is iPhone. But, from here things get even worse: there is a notch on the 5.84-inch display - but there is an option to turn it off. We simply don't know what to say about that.
At the back, there is a vertical dual camera set up along with a fingerprint sensor which works absolutely fine. There’s a hybrid dual-SIM tray on the left of the smartphone whereas the right side sees the power and volume buttons. It is powered by Huawei’s own HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor. There’s 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage expandable via SD card. The smartphone runs Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box skinned by Huawei’s custom EMUI 8.0.
Then there is a face unlock option. You guessed it: By looking at your screen for less than a second you can access your phone. "Built on complex algorithms and facial comparison data, the facial recognition feature ensures high-level security to guard against photo and video intrusion," says Huawei. We say, we don't even have to dig deeper: Huawei P20 Lite is such a pathetic and obvious iPhone wanna-be that it should be banned, that's clear intellectual infringement. ■
