Huawei P Smart
Over the year Huawei has built a reputation as one of the most innovative and original smartphone manufacturers to hit the industry, and they’ve done such a good job that they’re now widely regarded as one of the world’s largest mobile communications brands.
While they are recognised for delivering some of the most high tech and complex flagship handsets, they also develop impressive mid-range smartphones that are much more affordable.
One such release is the Huawei P Smart, which was released earlier this year to rave reviews. The P Smart is smart by name, smart by nature, and combines a premium design with some intelligent internal hardware without costing the earth. With the Huawei P Smart you may be paying less than you might think, but you are, by no means, compromising on performance.
Huawei P Smart Design & Display
Despite the fact that the Huawei P Smart is one of 2018s most affordable smartphone releases, it has an extremely premium design which wouldn’t look too out of place next to some of the most recent high-end launches.
The rear panel of the P Smart is crafted from aluminium with two anodised aluminium antenna strips and plastic caps. This gives the phone a decidedly minimal feel which is matched around the front with a panel that is almost completely screen.
The fingerprint scanner is conveniently located on the rear of the phone and we have found it to be extremely responsive.
The Huawei P Smart is just 7.5mm and slightly narrower than other handsets of this size, making it extremely comfortable to use. While there’s no water resistance on this handset (we wouldn’t really expect it for the price), it does feel extremely durable.
The P Smart uses a micro-USB cable as opposed to a USB-C one, but this doesn’t bother many, and it retains the use of a headphone jack will we’re sure will make many traditionalists happy.
The display is a 5.65 inch IPS LED panel with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 1080 x 2160, Full HD+ resolution. It balances colour, sharpness and contrast extremely well and tones tend to be delivered natural and saturated, but not overly so.
For anyone that does find that the colours aren’t to their liking, there is a handy colour temperature control, so you can edit them to be either warmer and colour based on your own preference.
Huawei P Smart Audio
As we’ve already mentioned, the Huawei P Smart has bucked the trend and gone against the grain by including the headphone jack in its design. While some may think of this as a dated feature, there’s no denying that it makes listening to music on your handset a little easier as you don’t need to worry about investing in a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones.
The Huawei P Smart uses just one speaker, which has become the norm for more affordable smartphones, but it still delivers a decent audio experience.
There aren’t any internal apps included on the handset, so you will have to download your own, Spotify for instance. We have to admit that we prefer it this way, as it can be slightly annoying when a new handset is already bloated by hefty internal software, we prefer to choose our own.
Huawei P Smart Camera
The camera setup on the Huawei P Smart is extremely impressive for the price. It combines a dual rear camera and a powerful front shooter for a fantastic smartphone photography experience all around.
On the back of the handset are a 13MP and 2MP dual setup that delivers fantastic shots in good lighting. The secondary 2MP lens is for wide aperture shooting and is a great sidekick to the larger sensor.
While the camera doesn’t perform as well in low lighting, we can’t really say that we were expecting it to on such an affordable handset, but the P Smart does conveniently apply post processing to any scenes with awkward brightness levels, so the phone is doing its best to give you that winning shot.
Round the front is brilliant 8MP selfie camera that delivers great shots. One serious advantage that the P Smart has over other mid-range phones is that it gives you the choice to apply background blue to both your selfies and your normal photographs. When you consider that of all the Apple handsets only the iPhone X can do this, you know you’re in for a good deal.
Huawei P Smart Features & Performance
The Huawei P Smart runs on Android 8.0 straight out of the box and uses Huawei’s EMUI 8.0 alongside it for the interface. If you’re not a fan of this you can amend it to your preferred look. As with the majority of Android phones, the P Smart will be upgradeable as and when new versions are released.
If you’re a gaming enthusiast then you’ll be happy to know that the P Smart delivers a solid gaming experience, with decent graphics and a speedy user experience.
The P Smart runs on Huawei’s very own HiSillicon Kirin 659 chipset, to deliver a responsive smartphone experience with little delay. On top of that, there’s a 3000mAh battery that will easily see you through a day with heavy use. Unfortunately, there’s no wireless or fast charging compatibility, but we wouldn’t let that put you off.
When it comes to storage the P Smart had 3GB of RAM on board as well as 32GB of internal storage. In all honesty, we feel that this plenty of space for all of your favourite apps, but if you are looking for a little more space then you can easily expand on the 32GB with the help of a micro-SD card.
If you’re looking for an affordable smartphone with a premium feel then the Huawei P Smart is a great choice. It’s perfect for personal or professional use and won’t let you down.
It features the stunning, expensive looking design that we’re used to getting from Huawei, with minimalist features and an appearance that attempts to give you as much screen as possible per inch.
The display is perfect for a phone of this price; it handles all colours well and gives users the option to amend it in settings should they wish to.
The audio experience is decent, and there’s no annoying, bulky music software on board so that users can choose their favourite when setting up the P Smart.
We were really impressed with the camera on the P Smart. We appreciated the dual lens on the rear and the powerful 8MP front shooter, as well as Bokeh effect which applies to both lenses.
The Kirin chipset delivers a fast and responsive smartphone experience and the large battery will easily see users through a full day of use.
