Huawei P Smart 2019 review

The smartphone screen display on devices has changed recently with new models having innovative ways to reduce the amount of space used up by sensors and camera lenses. In my Huawei P Smart 2019 review I take a look at a smartphone with a dewdrop notch.

Huawei P Smart 2019 design

The distinctive look of the Huaweil P Smart 2019 is thanks to the new design of the camera lens notch. We have seen manufacturers slim the bezels on smartphones to give us more screen. This left the issue of the camera lens and other sensors. A camera notch has been used on various models using up less screen space and now Huawei take it up a notch, ahem, with a dewdrop design.

This small dewdrop at the top of the screen gives you an almost all-screen device which is great for watching videos or gaming. The 6.21-inch FullView screen has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, FHD+ resolution.

A premium touch to this device is the 3D curved unibody design which has a ceramic feel. Available in either Coral Red, Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue or Aurora Blue this stylish phone weighs in at 160g and measures 7.95mm thick.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Features

Striking looks aside, the Huawei P Smart 2019 is packed with some impressive features. Under the hood, there is a Kirin 710 2.2GHx octa-core processor backed up with 3GB RAM. With GPU Turbo as well this phone delivers great performance whether you are gaming or running multiple apps.

You can choose from either a 32GB or 64GB variant with each option including a memory card slot. Security features include the usual fingerprint sensor as well as Face Unlock.

Android 9.0 is on board so you have lots of apps pre-loaded including favourites such as Chrome and YouTube. Huawei has enhanced this with their EMUI 9.0. This UI gives you lots of personalisation options and includes extra features and apps. One of these is AI Smart Shopping, scanning a product or taking a snap of it can take you to shopping websites and comparison sites to find the best prices.

Battery-wise you get a 3,400mAh power pack in the Huawei P Smart 2019. This gives you a decent amount of usage and will get you through the day. This new version also has an increased charging speed improved by 22% compared to the predecessor.

Huawei P Smart 2019 camera

A dual AI camera on the back will help you to create amazing photos and videos. The intelligent software can recognise up to 500 scenes and 22 categories. Settings are adjusted in quick-time as the subject of your photo is recognised and each optmised setting is chosen to give you the best possible image. There is a 13-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. This configuration of lenses allows you to create blurred backgrounds and special bokeh effects in real-time.

Selfie fans can take an AI shot with the 8-megapixel front camera that can recognise different selfie scenes and make you look your best in each take.


The Huawei P Smart adds AI features and faster charging as well as a fantastic camera package when compared to the previous model. If you love your P Smart and you are ready to upgrade this phone is perfect and it won’t break the bank.
