In other countries we met him as the Honor 6 x. Our region reached as a sort of younger brother of Huawei Mate 9 but no, this is a team that is able to defend itself by itself only within its range, with its pro and its against, knows Excel in areas where other manufacturers are not resolved.
First, the guts of the team:
Specifications 9 Matt Huawei Lite
- Screen of 5.5 inch 1080 p
- Processor Kirin 655
- 3 GB of RAM (there is a variant with 4)
- 32 GB of storage (the version with 4 GB of RAM has 64 GB of storage) expandable via microSD
- EMUI 4.1 based on Android Marshmallow
- Dual 12 megapixel camera / 2 megapixel
- 8-megapixel front camera
- 3340mAh battery
A design that feels coherent
Huawei Mate 9 Lite features a unibody aluminum that feels quite substantial and consistent design. It has some plastic, like the Chin and forehead parts in the rear, but it means where the antennas are housed. The volume and power buttons are also plastic, but do a good job getting overlooked in the rest of the metal of the team.
Its industrial design lines are deeply consistent with what has been done Huawei in its latest releases, rounded lines and a circular harmony with respect to that concept. It hard to find aggressive angles on the computer. Their side bezels are perhaps the only thing drastic, but at first sight failing to break with the design of the equipment.
Your fingerprint reader, comfortably besieged in the rear, makes an extraordinary work, although you will not be novel if you are using a Huawei launched in recent years. Alongside Lenovo have given Chair how to manufacture and deploy biometric recognition at its terminals. Quick animations of the operating system also help feel instantaneity in the Act of unlocking.
Good performance, little graceful operating system
As I have said on other occasions, when a brand manufactured its own engine, the performance tends to be better than normal. It is in this case no exception, its processor Kirin 655 meets everyday applications of perfect form and even the most demanding games did not show me a problem.
Huawei Android, EMUI 4.1 layer goes quite well, is strong, quick and does not suffer from crashes or delays, still will not let me call the attention all the guidelines of design and functionality based on Apple’s iOS. This has sweet and bitter things, on the one hand less “traumatic” gives a welcome from a team of Apple users, but on the other hand far away from the glory of clean and pure Android. Even so, seeing the result of the following EMUI updates based on Android Nougat, we know that it begins to close enough to something Android as should be.
Something that bothers me deeply, and I will not ever repeat in a review, is when I’m with a team loaded with bloatware. Simply I can tolerate that by default you have to have installed an application of “mirror”, TripAdvisor, Booking, TOP GAMES!, MakeupPlus and more “Tools” and “utilities” that I will never use and don’t want to be.
In an appearance where Excel, but not without a “but” it is the battery. Its duration has been so good in my test unit that I tend to believe that I had a blessed team. 7 hours average on screen, what gives me almost two days of use really intense do “bad? your charger is microUSB. Long not playing me a team with this technology to this point starts to feel a little ancient. Still, I understand that it is the absolute general standard to this day, but anyway it’s time to start to demand USB-C in all ranges, without excuse.
High-end to mid-range price camera
It is this aspect that most caught my attention from the team. I feel that your camera performs better than some teams that cost literally three times in the market. Its dual camera does a good job capturing depth of field, but honestly is a trick that I remembered and used frequently. On only the main sensor defends himself by way of exception. Perhaps the post processing tends to saturate some images, but that is something that when done well does not bother me. In low-light scenarios, the results are very good and had touched me something in this age of value.
9 Matt Huawei Lite
The aspect of video in my opinion is bad enough. The attempt of stabilization by software is poorly managed and only in moments of perfect light is achieved something really decent. You can that you are talking about in any case, from bad habit that caused me the good that the pictures were. For a person who is not looking for professional results of insurance not the video section will disturb you.
Watch on YouTube
The front camera is good, your wide-angle helps a lot to have best results when you’re with other people and his classic “beauty mode” is not as aggressive and strikes a balance between a small touch-up and the real.
I am so me
If you were in search of a team in the range of two hundred account, three hundred thousand in Chile, this would be my choice without thinking it over. Isn’t it only meets and fill almost all the boxes, also highlights deep in several aspects, which is a tall order. In addition the theme that Huawei is beginning to consolidate in Chile, along with the promise of the brand shops, say me an after-sales service at least present. Something that not many Chinese manufacturers can offer in our lands.
In Chile the official price, prepaid is CLP $259.990. In Mexico still is there official about its availability and price, only information that Telcel said bring it sometime in the next.
The good thing
- Nice design
- Battery life
- Exceptional photos for price
- Fast fingerprint reader
- Layer of customization that feels outdated
- Not very good videos
- Micro USB instead of USB-C
