I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review.
When I first got this phone I was amazed at how good it looked. It’s light and thin and definitely looks like a premium device despite being a fraction of the price of the latest flagships. I used the stock app launcher for a few days but decided that EMUI was not my thing. A quick install of a third-party launcher from the Play Store and I was back to loving the device. The camera is very impressive and takes great photos. The camera app has lots of features including the usual portrait and panorama but also others like Light painting and Time-lapse modes which are good fun to use. There’s even a document scanning mode meaning there’s no need to install a separate app just to get digital copies of documents.
Unfortunately, due to the low price there are some features that aren’t great. It still uses a Micro-USB connection and doesn’t support fast charging. These are things that you can expect on the latest flagship devices but as this costs considerably less there have to be some compromises. I think Huawei have picked the correct areas to focus on and sacrificed the less important aspects meaning the phone is incredible value for money.
All in all the Huawei P Smart is a fantastic phone and one i’m happy to be seen using.
