We instantly fell in love with the Huawei P8 Lite upon seeing it for the first time out of the box. It is a beautiful, well-crafted device. Although made in plastic, it looks and feels very premium. It seems Huawei has done a great job building this phone.

Now let’s check the button and port placements – the volume rocker, power button, and SIM trays are all located on the right side of the device while the 3.5mm earphone jack is at the top and USB charging port and speakers are at the bottom.

Overall the phone is extremely light and slim which is very delightful to hold. It is such a looker! The display is decent while operation and navigating the device is smooth. We have not installed anything yet on this device and we will reserve the rest of our judgement on the full review. 🙂
