hi all, i dont want to create a new thread

p smart or p20 lite

i see the only difference is the camera ..p20 lite has a better camera
I’ve used both and P20 Lite feels better made and has a better screen, P Smart is a nice phone though. Personally I would pay the extra for the P20 lite.

P20 Lite is also more internal storage iirc, at least the one I had was 64GB versus 32GB on the P Smart, though that could be market dependent.

Cant get that on contract

Cash price is around R3k and after buying airtime and bla bla works out to the same as a p smart on contract
Ah yes I only buy prepaid. R50 free airtime from Meandyou mobile and 250mb free data from Afrihost p/m is enough for me.

yeah they are much cheaper than gearbest as well . Thanks Dave
I would only buy from them if it was possible to pay with PayPal (for non-delivery protection) as there’s enough people complaining about non-delivery for it to be a problem.

Edit, and don’t forget there are China firmware versions of those phones, some come without the Play Store and others with a dodgy “global” ROM that didn’t come direct from Huawei.

p10 is going for R300 a month...is that a much better phone than the p20 lite ?
P10 is last year's flagship while the P20 lite is a mid range phone.

Personally I would take the P10, you going to get gorilla glass protection and a nice metal Unibody construction, also the camera is still better.

Add R99 extra per month for Mate 10 Pro @ Vodacom. So total R399 p/m. Much better specs and features. If you don't mind spending the extra R99 p/m

no thats too much and with voda it can get very bad ..

TM has the p10 for 299

so going to consider between that and the p20 lite
I have a xiaomi at the moment and its decent for the job . Not much into the camera and stuff but if im going to get a good phone better last a while

I'd say p10 over P20 lite, I have both, use the p10 daily and the P20 while nice isn't flagship. However it boils down to what you want out of it. 299 for a p10 is good value.
