Unboxing The Huawei P9 Lite, The Lightest Smartphone Ever Reviewed! — 360-degree View Included

Have you ever held a phone in your hand and the first thing that comes to mind is:
I thought the same thing when I first held the Huawei P9 Lite. Before jumping the gun, how about a quick look at its specs:

SCREEN SIZE 5.2-inches
WEIGHT 147 grams
OS Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
REAR CAMERA 13-megapixel
FRONT CAMERA 8-megapixel
PROCESSOR 1.7GHz/2.0GHz octa-core Kirin 650
STORAGE 16GB. Expandable via microSD up to 128GB



The P9 Lite’s package doesn’t come with any extravaganza, just a simple white box:


The earphones were the only accessory that caught my eye. I love how pretty it looks:


Notice any similarities??

 Other accessories remain the same, nothing new here:


Note: This is a 360-degree view, you can rotate the angles or zoom them yourself.

Do you remember this song?
Of course, if you are a Nigerian, there is no way you won’t remember Davido’s Gobe. The song perfectly describes my first impression with the Huawei P9 Lite.
While the 5.2-inch front view of the device might look boring to some:
The Back view is definitely a killer.


The phone is only 7.5 mm slim, but somehow it feels incredibly light in my hand. Here is a comparison with the Galaxy S7.
As you can see, even though the S7 has got all the curves, the Huawei P9 Lite still slays with its slim body — combine that with the weight:
… Then you’d see why this Mamacita has sneaked its way into my heart.


I got the gold variant of the P9 Lite, one thing that caught my eyes is the fact that the camera is placed on a separate color plate from the rest of the back — a design element common to the P series — this, in turn, gives the device a premium look and feel
By the way, the P9 Lite comes with metallic frame along with a satin-finish polycarbonate back. There is the presence of a fingerprint sensor which is fast becoming a norm on devices today and the 13-megapixel camera with  LED flash
Flipping the phone over, let’s you see the 8MP selfie camera, proximity, ambient light sensors and a notification LED (a tiny dot in the top right corner).
The Huawei P9 doesn’t come with physical buttons. Instead, you get on-screen buttons.


You have all the buttons to the right; these include the Power button and the Volume rocker.


While the Hybrid SIM card tray is on the left.


Yes, the Huawei P9 Lite does come with an SD card slot, but this means you’d have to sacrifice a second SIM.


On the top of the device seats the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The mic and mono-speaker backed by a 9 V Smart Amp are placed below.
Finally, the Huawei P9 Lite comes bearing some obvious letterings; there is one in front.
… And another on the back.


A song that describes my first impression with the Huawei P9 Lite


It’s true.


By the looks of it, the P9 Lite looks stylish and slim all over.  It’s also the phone that fits my hands the best, at least for now! Of course, this is just first impression talk, so stay glued as I put the P9 Lite to hardcore test.
As always, your thoughts?

    Lol. Misstechy already unboxed all

  16. Danny says:

    Looking at the and reading the review, all I see is Infinix Hot S. It would have been better if they’d gone for 400mAh rather than the 3k.
    All the same, it’s cool having similar devices from different companies all one needs do is choose the company you feel you can trust.
    Nice review as always by missyTechy

  17. Kemi Oguntayo says:

    So after reading this, I made a promise to buy this device should the review come out excellently. So misstechy I am really waiting for the review. Biko

  19. Harrie says:

    Umm the specs are quite touching, down to the design, just one flaw, battery.. Recent times, even Little devices gets a whooping 4000mah, #JustSaying, why stoop any lower..

  23. Blazerwap says:

    Nice and attractive phone

  24. KingAbsolute says:

    The p9 lite is beautiful, Huawei can make awesome phones. But I think the battery is lacking, with the specs, they should have raised the bar there, maybe to 4000mAh

  25. Chuks says:

    It is beautiful. No MTK! I have loved Huawei device. I hope the price be lesser.

  28. Ojo Stephen says:

    Yes Misstechy, I noticed a similiarity in the earpiece. It was designed like the Apple Airpods! I hope I’m correct 😉
