Huawei lite 2017 P9 is a refreshed version presented last year, Huawei P9 lite. The manufacturer redesigned the design and components listed so that the new device has to fight this year's mid-range smartphones. Thank you for lending your smartphone for testing the shop komputronik.pl Huawei Phone P9 lite 2017 buy in komputronik.pl . But this is obviously not the only cool product in our offer – just waiting for you up to 574 interesting and noteworthy smartphones . 🙂
Housing and appearance
Huawei P9 lite 2017 cost about 1300 zł, but the designers decided to use better material than plastic. Thanks to this year's P9 lite closer to premium devices, although you have to bear in mind that Huawei is not the only manufacturer that has recently improved the design of devices.On the front and back panel glass was used 2.5D, and the edges are gently rounded. This simple, but effective treatment has made smartphone looks good from every angle. Workmanship is at a very good level – the fittings are properly mated with each other, and the phone is great in the hand and is well balanced. There is no question of the gaps or clearances. It is a unibody design – you can not replace the battery yourself. Design deserves praise, but the phone also has drawbacks – the glass on both panels becomes very palcuje, which smartphone gets dirty quickly and loses its charm. Cleaning Cloth seems in the case of this device an essential accessory. The front panel is kept in a minimalist tone; we do not find it unnecessary elements – only display, placed under the manufacturer's logo and a camera, ambient light sensor, a speaker to talk and LED notifications, which are located over it. On the back we find well integrated into the design of the rear camera lens, accompanied by LED Illuminates LED. Below, was placed round recessed fingerprint reader gently into the housing, and even below the manufacturer's logo, and we will find some information about your phone. beam switch and volume control located on the right side of the phone. On the left there while the drawer. The lower rim was occupied by the multimedia speaker, microUSB port (standard 2.0), as well as a microphone. On the upper edge while we headphone mini-jack 3.5 mm and a secondary microphone. This is the standard arrangement of the buttons and connectors – no frills. In summary, the smartphone was made solidly and with due diligence, and attention to detail. Gently rounded rear panels improve the grip and the edges of development shows that the manufacturer has created a device carefully designed according to current trends in the mobile market.
The refreshed version of Huawei lite P9 was used battery 3000 mAh, and therefore the same capacity as in the model of 2016 years.With moderate use, the battery charger will reach an average of one and a half every day, and gently reducing the intensity of use, this time can extend to a maximum of two days. This is a standard among smartphones with a mid-priced, although Huawei P9 lite 2017 lags behind the Galaxy A5 (2017), or ZenFone 3 (ZE520KL). This is confirmed, moreover, battery test results. [Wptab style = "4" title = "Normal operation"] [test slug = "accumulator" order = "desc" selected = "22214" virtual = "PCMark-work-2" type = "single" product_id = "22214, 22154,22002,21966,21968,21910 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" Games "] [slug test =" accumulator "order =" desc "selected =" 22214 "virtual =" battery? manhattan-3 "type =" single "product_id =" 22214,22154,22002,21966,21968,21772,21752,21912,21910 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" charging time "] [ test slug = "battery" virtual = "load-ac" order = "ASC" selected = "22214" type = "single" product_id = "22214,22154,22002,21966,21968,21630,21772,21752,2191221910"] [/ wptab] [wptab_end] the battery is not also makes a fast charge time, as supplement power from zero to 100%, it takes more than three hours (188 minutes). It's a really long time – for comparison, the aforementioned Galaxy A5 (2017) are charged half the time. If during the day run out of energy in the battery, after 15 minutes of charging, the battery will recover to 11% of the energy, and after a quarter of an hour, this value increased to 20% if zechcielibyście extend the life of, in settings, see Manager battery, which can be selected one of the available modes. Opting for maximum power saving mode selection and an ultra-efficient, available to receive basic functions.
P9 lite 2017 is equipped with an optimal (in my opinion) for the smartphone screen – equipment characterized by a diagonal of 5.2 "and a resolution of Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels). So there is no question of jagged fonts and blurry image. The display is large enough to allow comfortable viewing content, as well as watching movies and playing.The panel was made in IPS technology therefore offers decent viewing angles and accurate color reproduction – can be attached only to the color black, which flows gently in the shade of gray, and white is gently zażółcony. There is, however, wonder – sRGB coverage is at 85.4%, while the Adobe RGB color palette is 61.8%. So we are dealing here with a worse display than even a lot cheaper Huawei Y6 II. The matrix in terms of parameters deviates too strongly from smartphones series nova. Strong side of the screen is a maximum brightness, which is up to 584 cd / m2. Such a high reading indicated using the calibrator shows that the use of the smartphone in full sun should not pose any problem. To minimum brightness I have no major reservations – is 7 cd / m2, and so is higher than competing smartphones, but it allows you to consume content after dark without tiring your eyes.

It is worth mentioning that the screen recognizes ten touch points. During testing noticed however, that the protective material display (of unknown origin was going) is a strange feel. I feel that puts a strong resistance, which glides a finger is not as freely as it should. I would add, however, that this impression you get used to – after a few hours I felt no longer dyskorfontu using P9 lite 2017. Among the settings we can find reduction function of blue light by adjusting chroma yellow – useful during prolonged staring at the screen, so when you read electronic books. We can also independently control the intensity of the yellow color. There are several other modes that improve the color scheme, among other things.
Main camera – characteristics, the quality of photos and videos
The user has a camera 12 MP (of single pixel size 1.25 .mu.m, lens aperture F / 2.2, autofocus based on the phase detection PDAF, the sharpening of 0.3 seconds) and a single LED. On the "paper" this set looks decent. And how is it in practice? Pictures taken in daylight look good and please the eye. They are characterized by great detail. This is due to the good operation of the automatic mode, which skillfully manages white balance, contrast, and sharpness. It is worth noting that the colors in the photographs are slightly boosted software. For some it will be a defect, for others an advantage. I just count myself to the second group. Photographs taken after dark does not impress. Then decreases the amount of detail recorded, there are the ubiquitous noise. It's a shame that it was decided to use optical image stabilization, which significantly affect the improvement of photography after dark. Despite this, I am of the opinion that the manufacturer offers a very good set, which in its class can win with more than one smartphone. >>> See sample photos at full resolution will record videos at a maximum Full HD (1080p) at 30 frames per second. They keep the same high level as photographs. In addition to the standard FHD, we also have available a lower resolution – HD, VGA, and QVGA format for MMS. It is even possible to record in slow motion. And as far as the above recording modes I have no objections, it leaves a lot to be desired. Heavily disappointing resolution – suddenly VGA (640 x 480) through which the detail is miserable level. Enjoys while recording video with sound.
Front camera – characteristics, the quality of photos and videos
Selfie was dedicated 8-megapixel front camera lens with aperture F / 2.0. It is not as impressive as the main camera, but pretty good detail and low noise make the pictures can safely show your friends or share on social networks. The same applies to video materials, which are recorded in FHD resolution. Of course, the producer gave us a range of effects and shooting modes, including face beautification. Fortunately, the machine is switched off.
The application for taking pictures
Huawei proposes an intuitive application to take pictures, which offers a lot of possibilities, including quite well developed manual mode. We can also set the length of exposure, among others, object, adjust light sensitivity (ISO to 1600 from Auto), brightness, as well as to choose the lighting conditions (even manually adjust the temperature in Kelvin). Available to obtain the effect of the panorama, beautifying, HDR time-lapse mode, and even scan documents. Advanced mode can also be found in the case of video. Huawei also provides powerful image editor, which in addition to standard photo processing, among others, can blur the background, beautify photographed person, and also make black and white background with a colored object.

Huawei (like Samsung) on the mobile system is self-contained and therefore at every opportunity gives know about it by implementing the SoC family Hisilicon Kirin. This is also the case P9 2017 lite, wherein the computing power is provided Hisilicon Kirin 655 (x4 ARM Cortex-A53 clocked at 2.1 GHz + 4x ARM Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.7 GHz). Added to this is the layout of the ARM Mali-T830MP2 and support from 3 GB of RAM type LPDDR3. It's a good set that will meet the expectations set by most users. Of course, the most demanding customers should keep in mind that this is a solid model, and therefore by definition less efficient than a full-fledged flagship. However, during daily use during the tests I did not feel disappointed – usually a smartphone running smoothly, and the slowdown can be captured only when run more demanding programs and the use of multi-tasking. However, there is much of a problem with switching between applications, or when using the two applications on a split screen.dedicated graphics chip ARM Mali-T830MP2 cope decently with most games available on Google, although it should be borne in mind that not all titles run smoothly on the highest detail. But I had no major problems with Mortal Kombat X, or Real Racing 3 (the proposed settings). I welcome the fact that Huawei P9 lite 2017 does not suffer from excessive heating of the housing. The rear panel is slightly warmer at the top, but it does not affect comfort. [Wptab style = "4" title = "PC Mark"] [test slug = "PCMark android" order = "desc" selected = "22214" virtual = "PCMark android-work" type = "single" product_id = " 22214,21718,22154,22002,21966,21968,21630,21772,21752,21844,21422 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" AnTuTu "] [slug test =" android-6-antutu "order =" desc "selected =" 22214 "virtual =" antutu-total-6 "type =" single "product_id =" 22214,21718,22154,22002,21966,21968,21630,21772,21752,21844,21422 " ] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "3D Mark"] [test slug = "3dmark" order = "desc" selected = "22214" virtual = "3dmark-ice-storm-unlimited-total" type = "single" product_id = "22214,21718,22154,22002,21966,21968,21630,21772,21752,21844,21422"] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "T-Rex"] [test slug = "gfxbench-fps" order = "desc" selected = "22214" type = "single" virtual = "t-rex-3-onscreen" product_id = "22214,22154,22002,21966,21968,21630,21772. 21752.21844 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" Manhattan "] [slug test =" gfxbench-fps "order =" desc "selected =" 22214 "type =" single "virtual =" manhattan -3-o nScreen "product_id =" 22214,22154,22002,21966,21968,21630,21772,21752,21844 "] [/ wptab] [wptab_end] Synthetic tests only reinforces the belief that we are dealing with a smartphone mid-priced, whom far to the flagship models, and even sometimes competing in the same segment. I think, however, that no digit count most here, and the real work of the smartphone, which – once again, let me mention – is the proper level.
System and interface
As the Huawei P9 solid 2017 is presented in this year, out of the box working system based on Android 7.0 Nougat. But this is not a clean OS, because the manufacturer has applied proprietary graphical interface EMUI 5.0, which makes me very happy.cap system is clear and transparent – find it in every – even people who have first contact with the device running Android under control. Standard for Chinese manufacturers became enabling the user to personalize, among others, by changing the theme. Huawei In addition to installing the most needed applications for Google, also offers its programs and third parties. The default interface has been deprived app drawer, and therefore everything that is thrown will be installed directly on the desktop. Applications can of course be grouped in folders. However, if one of you regrets the lack of the App Drawer (as I used to), then there is nothing to prevent the Settings choose classic style screen, which will restore the application drawer. If the interface proves to be too powerful for someone, or most of the functions will not be used, it is still simple mode. Because of that we have on board one of the newest systems of Google, P9 2017 lite mode offers two windows. This function allows you to use two applications at the same time. To activate it simply move two fingers from the bottom of the screen upwards. Of course not all applications run in this mode due to system limitations, but the most necessary and yes.
Communications facilities Huawei P9 lite 2017 would have been perfect if not for one snag – The single wireless module Wi-Fi (802.11b / g / n, 2.4 GHz). I have no objections to his actions, because the exercises properly and is stable even after changing stories, but in 2017 it became the standard to implement a dual-mode smartphones prayers. Equipped with Bluetooth 4.1 does not run out. The manufacturer has put on hybrid slot SIM card, so that the user determines whether to use support for dual SIM cards (NanoSIM + NanoSIM – Dual Standby / microSD + nanosim), or give up one for the memory expansion capabilities for additional gigabytes through microSD card. In the case of two SIM cards, only one slot, you can use the full capabilities of data transmission (2G / 3G / 4G), when the second sheet is only 2G. The phone also has a GPS (with A-GPS support and GLONASS), which is doing well – so that does not require support from the cellular network. Search signal does not last long. Wireless communications facilities also includes NFC and FM radio.
Built-in memory, OTG
Huawei is not tried in terms of built-in memory, because it offers us a solid model P9 2017 suddenly 16 GB, and therefore the same as in P9 with lte 2016 years. Nowadays, it is only at a minimum. The more so that the user remains at the disposal of a little over 7.5GB. Install the necessary applications and some games will make the run out of space for music, videos and photographs. Fortunately, you can use the expandable memory through the use of a microSD card reader that can handle cards with a capacity of 128GB. On board equipment also debuted a microUSB 2.0 port with support for OTG. This makes it possible to connect other devices such as a mouse, or memory stick. Interestingly, P9 lite launched in 2017 even 2.5-inch disk (without their own power supply) and was able to read the contents of the NTFS file system.
Speaker calls and handset
Multimedia speaker located on the bottom rim is loud, but the sound quality coming out is not very good. The sound is flat and at maximum volume becomes disruptive. The speaker works for the signaling of incoming calls and notifications. The included headset should remain in the box, if you plan to use at his music. This traditional flea wired remote control, which are suitable only for interviewing. When you connect other handsets, it appears that Huawei used by the sound transducer is able to extract clean and pleasant-sounding tone. A bad word I can not write about the speaker and microphones responsible for conversation – the sound is clean, but with two microphones that collect good voice and reduces background noise, the conversation is seamless.
Regarding the biometric sensor for Huawei can always count on. The model was used in version 4.0, which works flawlessly and quickly. I'm not afraid to say that Huawei devices can find the best of this type of biometric security. It is assigned to up to five fingerprints that are used to unlock the screen, receiving a call or provide access to locked content that has been placed in the safe. Due to the fact that the sensor supports gestures, you can also eject / hide the notification bar, view photos in Gallery, take a photo, answer a call or stop the alarm. It should be borne in mind that you do not need to pre-define the footprint of the abbreviations used.
Summary and evaluation
Huawei once again proves that he knows on the production of smartphones. P9 lite 2017 smartphone is a great mid-priced, which finds many happy buyers. I think if I was standing in front of the middle good choice, this model would be my favorite in the price range up to 1300 dollars.Huawei P9 lite 2017 has many advantages, including an elegant (but not original) design, camera being able to take good pictures and record video footage nice, and well optimized battery. Importantly, smartphone without the slightest difficulty is able to keep up with you for more than a day on one battery charge. Before I get to what Huawei P9 lite 2017 was underdeveloped, yet would like to commend the manufacturer for functional system with a great pad that enhances your use of the device. For complete happiness I ran next to the 16GB built-in memory data (so you can be without major problems installing the necessary applications) and better quality headphones in the sales package Because sporadic downtime P9 lite 2017'm willing to accept.
