    Default Huawei P8 Lite 2017 vs P Smart

    Hi all you geniuses and tech gurus!

    Just a quick one.

    Need a phone, just something budget, but not super budget.

    Came across these 2 phones, both seem fine for what I need.

    P8 Lite 2017 is a bit cheaper than the P Smart, but is the extra pay in on the P Smart worth it?

    Thanks all!

    My SO is having the same decision to make, but between the P10 lite and the P smart. According to gsmarena, the P10 lite and the P smart are very similar, the Smart having a bigger screen (5.65" vs 5.2), slightly better resolution and a dual rear camera. My choice on specs would probably be the Smart.

    Yeah i'm inclined to go with the P Smart as well. Actually went into a store that had them side by side, played around with both and the Smart is definitely a little bit nicer looking. Just wondering if it's worth the extra bit. I think Vodacom has the P8 Lite for R179pm and the P Smart at R249pm.

    This guy has a really nice review of p8 lite : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G19ZwxIAwA4
    *Spolier alert: "Don't buy it"

    Apparently, emui isn't optimised for this phone, screen doesn't have any oleophobic coating, and the refresh rate of the screen is tad lower than average.

    Coming from an iPhone 6s, P8 lite 2017 is not a bad phone.
    It is way beta than my ooold LG G3 with Lineage OS.
    I took it because of the extra benefits. I was spending on prepaid over R200 for data and calls to other networks, I'm on Telkom mobile.
    Two simcards in one phone is another extra for me.
