Huawei P smart 2019

I will tell you two things in this article:

  1. Why this phone is actually called the Huawei P Smart, 2019
  2. What improvements and upgrades have been made from the Huawei P Smart 2019, which was and still is a very popular budget smartphone.

It is the 2019 version since, well it was released in 2019, that should go without say. The first P Smart smartphone was the P Smart that was released in 2018 and proved to be a solid smartphone all round so it should be safe to say that we can only hope for better things here. As to why it is the Smart smartphone I will tell you in a few, stay tuned.

Design and build

Okay real quick let us talk about that design. It is a phone with a plastic back, plastic that has a glass illusion. In that without touching it one would very easily think it is glass. It reflects light just the way a glass panel would, it is plastic anyway- and one that attracts finger smudges for that matter- again just like glass. I love the sapphire blue version, it looks really great and it is no wonder Huawei uses it to advertise. On the back we also see a fingerprint scanner and on the top quarter and in the middle while every other thing is on the right hand side, camera on the top right and Huawei branding on the bottom.

That front part has a dew drop notch that probably will be the first thing you will notice about it. And of course it houses the selfie camera. Before I go any further it is important I mention that the back paned is curved and transitions seamlessly to the sides. Moving on, there is an LED notification light at a strange place on this phone, the bottom part of the edge of its display. More on that you will find out as you use this phone. Speaker grill in on the bottom left and there is that micro USB 2.0 port (seriously Huawei?) as well. Volume and power button(s) are on the right hand side as you would expect.

It weighs about 160 grams the P Smart 2019 and is approximately 8mm thick, or slim.


I think I have already mentioned that LED light feature. So that aside, we get a 6.21 inches facing you and on 94.7 cm2 surface area. That is quite some estate if you ask me, and with ~83.1% screen-to-body ratio you will enjoy interacting with it. It is an LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that supports 16M colors. With a 1080 x 2340 pixels resolutions images will be just as splendid. Also to mention is its ~415 ppi density.

A decent display, I always say good viewing angles and outdoor visibility are key, and both are a hot here. It doesn’t get so bright though but with the right display tweaks you will find a way around it. These are found under settings > display.


Hey, some people just love a phone because it comes with a good camera, and selfie shooter as well.

  • Primary camera
  • 13 MP, f/1.8, PDAF
  • 2 MP, depth sensor
  • LED flash, HDR, panorama
  • 1080p@30/60fps
  • Selfie camera:
  • 16 MP or 8 MP, f/2.0
  • HDR
  • 1080p@30fps

This are my remarks on the cameras of the Huawei P Smart. They are excellent. So this is why this smartphone is the P SMART, it comes with this high end and even in some cases flagship feature that would automatically identify objects you focus on and recommend a few stores online where you could buy it. Smart right? I think I have seen this on Samsung flagships- the S line to be specific, but guess what- you don’t need an S smartphone for that anymore, P smart 2019 got you covered. It is a feature Huawei attributes to its AI camera(s). There also is another feature called “HiVision” (unsure how it is spelt) that works some magic too as you will experience. So be on the lookout for such details.

Performance and platform

It comes running on Android 9.0 (Pie) with EMUI 9 (Impressive), has Huawei’s very own mid-range Hisilicon Kirin 710 (12 nm) chipset, an Octa-core (4×2.2 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4×1.7 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU and a Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. Performance here is good and it holds up well enough to handle a number of tasks at a go.


Get a 32/64 GB version of the Huawei P Smart both run on 3 GB RAM and can be expanded using a Micro SD up to 512 GB (uses SIM 2 slot).


That non-removable Li-Ion 3400 mAh battery seems like a low capacity on paper considering that screen size, but looking at its platform stats one would easily think it will hold up just okay. Well, here is what- it does. It scores an endurance rating of 82 hours, that’s not something you get from all other batteries. How it has been customized only Huawei can tell.
