Lisa Gade reviews the Huawei P8 lite, an affordable GSM unlocked Android smartphone for the US market that sells for $249 full retail unlocked. The P8 lite is very slim at 0.3” and it weighs 4.76 ounces.
It has dual SIM card slots and it supports 4G LTE on AT&T and T-Mobile in the US (along with smaller GSM carriers that piggyback off those networks). It is not compatible with Sprint or Verizon since those carriers use CDMA rather than GSM. The phone has a 5” LTPS 1280 x 720 display with Gorilla Glass 3, a 2200 mAh battery that’s sealed inside and single band WiFi 802.11n plus Bluetooth 4.0.
It runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Huawei’s EMUI 3.0 UI on the 1.5 GHz Snapdragon 615 with Adreno 405 graphics. It has a 5MP front camera and 13MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording.
