The new one is now available in the local market Mate 20 Lite. Is a smartphone which is named after the top line of mobile phones Huawei but give the size?

One thing is clear: this mobile of the Mate line only bears the name. Don't misunderstand me. I mean that if you expect to find a reduced version of the Mate 20 Pro (a smartphone outstanding), you won't find it. What I know is a mid-range mobile, with cameras that stand out from the competition and with a very good performance in general.

But, as always, let's review first the main characteristics of the Mate 20 Lite, the new smartphoneof Huawei.

IN FAVORThe Mate 20 Lite is not a smartphone big. Despite having a screen of 6.3 allows to handle it without problems with one hand. The screen size is very well used. And on that subject, the screen offers very good performance: very clear and clear images. Despite being only Full HD + LCD, it goes very well and especially in the experience with the games.

As for the design, the Mate 20 Lite It is not so innovative. Curved corners, somewhat wide frames and notch (which may disappear). Nothing new in this smartphone, although all very elegant: metal and glass edges in front and behind.

However, the most interesting thing about this smartphone It is on the back: the rear (glass) area has a glossy finish, but the upper vertical central area (where the two cameras and the fingerprint sensor are) has a different frame, which gives it an interesting touch. All buttons (volume and power controls) are on the right (they feel good to the touch), on the left are the SIM tray and SD memory. Below is the 3.5mm jack, the USB Type-C connector and the speaker (on the top front there is another speaker, but only for phone calls).

As for performance, the smartphone use the Kirin 710 and it goes very well. I felt no problem of lag despite being a mid-range device. On heating issues, the device manages it well. Here is important news for many users: it includes FM RADIO.

Just like other smartphones with higher ranges, this Mate 20 Lite offers a night mode with no negligible results. (Photo: Bruno Ortiz B.)

The cameras of this smartphone They offer a very interesting performance, which may be superior to other devices of a similar range. Forward and back have 2MP secondary cameras that have as main function to give depth to the shots. There are several interesting things in the final results: skin tones are a bit more real and, as always, take full advantage of natural lighting.

The rear camera of the Huawei Mate 20 Lite does a good job with the background blur, especially in well-lit environments. (Photo: Bruno Ortiz B.)

In low light conditions, photos and videos with this smartphone change However the Mate 20 Lite It has a night mode (in the best style of his older brother Mate 20 Pro) that offers pretty good results.

As for the front camera, it has also improved a lot especially with the HDR mode – and handles backlight selfies quite well. The results with both cameras are very good, although not spectacular. HERE A HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS TEAM.

The result of the selfie is remarkable. The Mate 20 Lite takes good pictures with the front camera, although it needs to improve a bit in the definition of the edges when the blur is applied. (Photo: Bruno Ortiz B.)

In video it reacts very well, with a smooth image finish although it denotes a lack of sharpness. It shows no noise in the recordings. East smartphone It has electronic stabilization. An interesting thing is that the camera application has artificial intelligence that recognizes elements and environments. WATCH THE FULL WALL OF PHOTOS AND VIDEOS

The Mate 20 Lite It has a fast charge, although it is not the Super Charge technology of other models of Huawei but it goes hand in hand with the performance of other Premium range chargers from previous years. Its 3,700 mAh battery allows sufficient autonomy for a full day. If the user is measured in its use, it can reach up to a day and a half of battery.


Despite being a good team, it has several features that are extracted. Maybe they mean the smartphone Upload category, but we will mention them anyway. It has no NFC connectivity, does not have wireless charging, nor is it resistant to water or dust. On the subject of audio, his performance is only regular. It has two speakers (one at the top front and one at the bottom), but only the bottom one works to reproduce sounds, in mono. The superior is only for calls.

As for the security layers, unlocking by facial recognition takes a bit. However, the fingerprint sensor works faster in this smartphone. It has front LED indication. S not that there may be problems with some notifications, which can be corrected manually.


The Mate 20 Lite of Huawei is a smartphone mid-range that offers a good performance, which has very interesting features, and that may interest users looking for a cheaper, but very efficient device. Rating: 8.5.
