Specs Comparison: Huawei P9 Lite vs P10 Lite

After launching the flagship smartphones P10 and P10 Plus, Huawei has officially announced the toned down version called the P10 Lite. This release was not surprising as the company did the same approach last year with the P9 Lite. For today’s comparison, we take a quick look at the side-by-side comparison between the two handsets.

Huawei P10 Lite Advantages:

  • Better CPU
  • Bigger RAM
  • Bigger storage
  • Dual LED Flash
  • Dual-band Wi-Fi
  • Slightly slimmer
  • Android 7.0 OS
  • Fast charging

The Huawei P10 Lite is definitely an upgrade over the P9 Lite in terms of specs alone. The only things carried over from last year’s Lite handset are the display size and resolution, front camera, and battery capacity — although the P10 Lite still has advantage in this aspect due to its fast charging feature. It still doesn’t have Leica-certified optics which is the main point of it being a toned down model.

The P9 Lite was still a decent performer thanks to the combination of its internals, but with the P10 Lite around, we do expect better performance.

      a LOT better. mabuti sana kung ginawa narin nilang dual-cam ala GR5 2017 ung p10 lite, pero for everything else, mas value for money ang GR5. heck, mas okay pa nga ang P9 lite kasi mas mura siya kesa sa P10 lite while being almost the same
