Everything new is well forgotten old. In the case of Huawei yet not quite, and not all forgotten. The company was inspired by the success of his first P8 Lite announced in 2015.
Was inspired and decided to try the light version of the flagship. Though not invented a new name for her. See, forgot or did not want. Anyway, please welcome the bestseller of the reincarnation of 2017 – Huawei P8 Lite 2017.

Resolution reaches 1920 x 1080 pixels (423 ppi), which is also the average for such diagonal. 4K is for the flagships. However, if the manufacturer has presented such an elegant solution Huawei P8 Lite 2017, would suffer autonomy. Because Full HD is a perfectly reasonable choice. This is the best option.
Viewing angles are wide, color reproduction is correct. It’s not AMOLED technology with acid colors. If desired, you can adjust the color temperature in the settings. However, in the extreme points the image goes blue. But it is not critical.
The screen is bright. There is a stock of brightness.
One disadvantage of the screen – there is no oleophobic coating. Will survive?

In addition, the smartphone brings on Board co-processor Sensor Hub i5. He is responsible for background tasks: from the work of the player from the lock device to the light sensor. The presence Sensor Hub+i5 should extend the battery life of the device.

The most notable innovation left in the smartphone from the “bare” Android is the ability to reply to messages from the notification bar. Note and updated as notifications for software support 7.0 Nougat.

Shell adapts to the user. No, it’s not artificial intelligence, just machine learning. The device will instantly launch frequently used applications.
Note also the appearance of the keys of fast action oval shape, is located at the bottom of the on-screen system keys. And it is also a convenient innovation. The manufacturer is sure that many actions are now performed in a couple of clicks, and the interface EMUI 5.0 is one of the most beautiful and comfortable. Can agree with him.

With an eye on the price of the smartphone shoots quite well.
Smartphone video writes in Full HD quality at 30 frames per second. About 4K, favorite flagships, of speech, of course not, but Full HD is quite decent.
Battery and work offline smartphone
The battery has 3000 mAh (non-removable). This is sufficient for two days operation at a typical load.
On average, the device lasts 5-7 hours of active screen. Just a pity that he was not lucky with support for fast charging. But as to charge the smartphone it is necessary not so often (like Android background), it is possible not to get upset.
Huawei P8 lite 2017 smartphone interesting. And it has all the modern user (and new names for him and not important: important is the point).
First, stylish design. Well, that wasn’t weird. Despite the lack of metal casing, the phone looks pretty decent, especially if you watch his appearance, removing from the housing the fingerprints.
Secondly, good performance, not to spoil the owner’s nerves. Hardware model is closer to Huawei Lite P9 than P8 Lite.
Thirdly, long battery life, not to live electrical outlet.
Fourth, a good camera to capture myself and the world around them.
Fifth, adequate price tag that the user is still life left.
Of course, not without drawbacks. For example, disappointing that there is no oleophobic coating, so it tries to fall out of the hands: the body slippery. But it will help, for example, the use of the protective film and case, which, incidentally, can also be very stylish. And mobile – excellent, especially for their 6,5 thousand hryvnias.
