Huawei Mate 20 Lite vs Huawei P20 Lite

We compare the new Huawei Mate 20 Lite with the older P20 Lite to help you decide which phone to buy.

PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • £379 (about $500)
Though flagship phones get all the attention, they’re not necessarily the ones you actually want to buy. That’s probably one reason Huawei has launched the Mate 20 Lite ahead of the Pro version.


But is this newcomer right for you? Here we explain how it differs from Huawei’s similar, but older, P20 Lite so you can make a decision between the two.

PRICE
There’s £50 separating these handsets, with the older phone costing £329 and the Mate 20 Lite £379.

They’re both available from Carphone Warehouse, the Mate 20 Lite here and the P20 Lite here.

If you prefer not to pay for a monthly contract, then the Mate 20 Lite starts at £23 (with a £29.99 up front cost) and the P20 Lite costs £18, with no other fees.

Of course, these may not be the only phones you’re considering and the Honor 10 is currently £359 from Carphone Warehouse and benefits from the more powerful Kirin 970 processor, has 128GB of storage and is dual-SIM to boot. It’s great value at this price.

You can read our full P20 Lite review as well as our hands-on review of the Mate 20 Lite.

FEATURES & SPECS
These are very similar phones, not only in looks, but also in their specifications. The Mate 20 has a few notable differences:

  • Bigger 6.3in screen
  • Bigger battery (lasts up to 2.5 days)
  • Twin selfie cameras
Both phones are firmly in the mid-range bracket: they lack the Kirin 970 processor you’ll find in the surprisingly affordable Honor 10.

That may not be a concern to you, but understand that this limits more than just general speed and responsiveness. For example, neither can shoot 4K video and though they have decent-sounding slo-mo modes, at 120fps (P20) and 480fps (Mate 20), they’re at lower resolutions than you might expect.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that the pair offer no water-resistance (and neither does the Honor 10), but they do have standard headphone jacks.

Here’s a table comparing the specs of the Huawei Mate 20 Lite and the P20 Lite:

In terms of software, both phones come with Huawei’s EMUI which tends to divide opinion. It’s a far cry from stock Android and is more iOS-like than anything. Fortunately, there’s plenty to like about it, including the ‘born fast, stays fast’ feature which isn’t just marketing fluff: it actually works.

The Mate 20 Lite’s dual front-facing cameras aren’t just there for selfies with blurred-out backgrounds. Because the 2Mp camera is dedicated to depth detection, it means you can unlock the phone with your face, and this also works if you hold the phone sideways.

Plus, like quite a few other recent phones, that depth sensing camera allows you to turn your face into an animated emoji. Huawei calls this Qmoji, and it’s much like Apple’s Animoji and Samsung’s AR Emoji. You might think this is a gimmick, but then again, it might be another reason to go for the Mate 20 Lite instead of the P20 Lite.
