P30 vs P20 lite

Which one is best for you?

The P20 lite was Huawei’s mid-range offering in 2018, and has an impressive feature set for such a reasonably-priced smartphone. Released a year later, the P30 represents a significant advance across the board, and is very much a premium device.

The P20 lite features an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch Full HD+ LCD screen with a notch to house the selfie camera. The P30’s screen is in another league – a sumptuous 6.1-inch OLED display with sharp contrasts and vibrant colours that will enrich your viewing and gaming experience, the front camera hidden behind a tiny dewdrop notch.

The P20 lite features a 16+2-megapixel dual lens Leica camera that would be impressive on a more premium smartphone. The P30 benefits from Huawei and Leica’s continued partnership, with one of the best phone cameras money can buy – a versatile 40+16+8-megapixel triple snapper with an ultra-wide angle lens, a telephoto lens, and a depth sensor that makes sure you’ll get pin-sharp photos every time.

Aimed at different pockets, the P20 lite is a great phone for the money, while the P30 is a top-end smartphone with all the latest bells and whistles.
