After hearing that Huawei would manufacture the new Nexus 6 several months ago I decided that I had to get my hands on something they had created. The P8 Lite was obvious because of the price point. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to Unbox this device and give my initial impressions. I have had a few weeks to use the phone now so I would like to share some more fleshed out opinions with you here.
For such an affordable price this phone really feels premium when compared to other Chinese smartphones! The sides of the phone could easily be mistaken for metal. The display is covered with Gorilla Glass 3 which is pretty sweet for a phone at this price point. The back of the phone is plastic but has a brushed metal finish which looks really classy. The phone is less than 1 millimeter thicker than the Galaxy S6! The Power button is slightly above center on the right side (perfect placement for right thumb) and the volume rocker is just above that. Buttons are nice and tacky. They aren’t like the cheap inset buttons covered by the backplate like you will find on many cheap Chinese handsets. The 3.5mm headphone jack rests on the top of the phone (i actually prefer it on the bottom since i normally slide my phone in my pocket bottom up). Sim and card slots can also be found on the right side of the device under the power button. The speaker grills are placed on either side of the micro usb 2.0 charge port. These speakers actually get pretty loud and do sound good. Of course the camera is on the back and is placed in the top left corner. There is no camera bump! The phone is super light! It is 12 grams lighter than the Iphone 6s.
