The P40 lite compares well against other handsets in the same price point. However, the Honor 30S really does stand out of the crowd when comparing front cameras.

The selfie camera on the higher priced model is a solid effort from Huawei. Comparing the Huawei P40 lite's 16 mega pixel selfie camera to the much more expensive iPhone 11's £699, 12 megapixel selfie camera shows Huawei are leading the way in photography. Lets look at how they compare to other cheaper smartphones.

Huawei havent given enough of a push on the selfie camera to stand out. Its still a good selfie camera but Samsungs clever camera rotation system makes it a better selfie taker by far.

Huawei dont just push their camera as their main feature, battery life is now a consideration for anyone purchasing a smartphone.

For the non battery enthusiasts amongst us. The bigger the number the better when it comes to charging your phone quicker and having a longer battery life.

The Verdict


The P40 Pro and Pro Plus standout due to the advancement in the camera technology and the speed they can charge. However when looking at value for money the P40 lite standsout in comparison with the other Huawei P40 devices.

Comparing the P40 lite to other similar priced smartphones its not an outright winner. The selfie camera needs a bit of work and the Honor 30S's 64 megapixel camera is considerably better, at only £23 the Honor 30S really does out-spec the reasonably priced Huawei P40 lite.
