HTC Desire A17
Release Date: 12/05/2016
This is a Chinese Telecom company which was founded in the year 1997 and has been manufacturing phones since then. It is the largest telecommunication company in the market. Huawei has a range of mobiles and this time around it has come with the Huawei Mate 9 Lite.
The Huawei Mat 9 Lite Dual SIM phone is packed with some decent specs. It has a sporty and easy going outlook to it with a good screen size and display. Not only that, the Huawei Mate 9 Lite camera is also a good one. Overall the Huawei Mate 9 Lite specifications are decent enough.
The Huawei Mate 9 Lite features are good but are they good enough for the Huawei Mate 9 Lite price in India which is 24,999 INR is the big question. This is because the features provided in this phone can be found in a phone priced on the lower scale too. These features packed together by other Chinese brands can be found in phones priced in the range of 10,000 - 20,000 INR.
Design and Body
The Huawei Mate 9 Lite design is very similar to other Chinese phones. It has a very smooth and sleek design and has the fingerprint sensor under the camera on the back. It has been released in Gold, Grey and Silver.
The Huawei Mate 9 Lite body is sized at 5.94 x 3 x 0.32 inches ( 150.90 x 76.20 x 8.20 mm) and weighs at around 162 gms, which is a fairly good weight for the phone of this size and dimensions.
Camera and Storage
The Huawei Mate 9 Lite camera features a 12 MP primary and 8 MP secondary camera. The camera quality is not exemplary but it clicks bright pictures. The shutter speed of the primary camera is measured at 0.3 seconds. Overall, the Huawei Mate 9 Lite camera is good but not great enough.
This phone has an internal storage of 32GB which is fairly a low amount of storage considering the Huawei Mate 9 Lite price. Moreover, there is no option of expandable storage which is expected at the least with an internal memory of 32GB.
The Huawei Mate 9 Lite battery provided is a non-removable 3340mAh battery. This will mostly last you the larger part of the day with basic usage of phone and internet. Even in the battery department a higher powered battery was expected out of a Chinese phone of this price range.
Huawei Mate 9 Lite phone has an Octa-Core processor. This also has been provided with a Kirin 655 chipset and other Huawei Mate 9 Lite specs include connectivity options of Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G. Both the SIM slots are provided to fit in Nano SIMs.
This is a quite a good phone which has all the features in good proportion. But the Huawei Mate 9 Lite price in India is the deciding factor of this phone becoming a hot or a miss!
