Atish, South Africa. 7 February 2017

This is an excellent handset. The screen protector is already applied. The fingerprint scanner is top notch. Cpu performance is very snappy. Display is 1080. The battery life is surprisingly strong. With moderate use lasts 2.5 days. Cons: no fast charge, dual sim is actually hybrid SD + sim. The Gyroscope is not physical but virtual - games that rely on it won't work so well.

Alastair, South Africa. 6 March 2017

Without being a boffin on cell phones, I think this is a really good phone

Shane, South Africa. 5 March 2017

Great handset. Super value for money when compared to some of the other "higher" brands.
Takes excellent pics. The screen quality is sharp and the response is excellent. The 3 meg RAM is cool.

Prakash, South Africa. 9 December 2016

Quick and reliable

Pieter, South Africa. 1 December 2016

Awesome phone for the price

Hein, South Africa. 6 April 2017

Excellent value for money and the best in its class.

Lesley, South Africa. 11 December 2016

The phone was as advertised, i'm really impressed!

Ferdinand, South Africa. 20 October 2016

Very happy with the quality of this phone. Great dual sim capability and not slow at all. Camera quality also amazing. Absolute value for money!

Brynne, South Africa. 24 March 2017

Happy with purchase, Product works as expected . . . . .

Iqshan, South Africa. 11 November 2016

Nice phone

Tracey, South Africa. 5 December 2016

Bought this for my son. He rates this phone more than his Samsung he had. Really impressed with the phone - and what made it better was the price I bought it at whilst on special at Takealot.

Mitesh, South Africa. 3 January 2017

Awesome phone for this price.
replaced my iPhone 5, very happy with it.

Francois, South Africa. 5 December 2016

Great phone. Please note that this phone is currently (December 2016) not compatible with the Fitbit Charge 2. We found out the hard way...

Krystal, South Africa. 7 December 2016

Amazing Phone

Reeza, South Africa. 28 December 2016

This phone has been great so far. It's easy to use, does everything needed of it, the battery lasts pretty long and hasn't been overheating yet. It was advertised to have 2gb ram, but it actually had 3gb. Also, it came with a free rear protective cover and a screen protector.

Jeanne, South Africa. 11 January 2017

Very cool phone. As with every phone, it requires time and patience to get it personalized. But it is so much better than the Nexus I used to have. Great quality camera too.

thulani, South Africa. 19 December 2016

Amazing phone. I'm very happy with the the phone and the online shopping it's convenient. Sad part with the phone is that you have to choose between two sim cards or memory card.

Edwin, South Africa. 16 December 2016

I ordered a Huawei P9 Lite 16GB LTE - Titanium Grey and received a black phone.

Sam, South Africa. 24 March 2017

Awesome phone. Best value for money!

Dewan, South Africa. 7 March 2017

This is a really good phone for the price point and have had no issues yet. Also, really like the fact that Huawei add a clear cover in the box with the phone...not the most protective cover but more than anyone else is including. The only negative point I have is that the earphones that it come with are not the greatest.

Asif, South Africa. 6 December 2016


Bijo, South Africa. 12 March 2017

Great value for money.

Upgraded from an Iphone 5S and it is definately an upgrade. I also prefer it to my 2015 Samsung A7. The android interface is slicker than the Samsung one, it almost feels like an android ios hybrid. Its a real pleasure to use this phone. Its a well thought out and well put together product. The finger print reader at the back of the phone is ingenious. I am really happy with this phone, it feels like money well spent.

Michael, South Africa. 30 January 2017

Love this phone ......

Jonathan, South Africa. 31 October 2016

Early days, but so far the device is great. Fast and responsive. Advertised as 2gb of RAM but actually has 3gb. Only complaint is that you are not able to to use Afrikaans on Google keyboard and the Huawei keyboard just isn't as good.

Michael, South Africa. 18 January 2017

I am very happy with the phone. It does everything I need and is easy to use. Sound and picture quality both excellent.

Lyn, South Africa. 30 November 2016


Nkosi, South Africa. 26 December 2016

Absolutely love the phone. Fulfills all my needs. Very happy with the overall performance .

Kelly, South Africa. 8 December 2016

Very impressed with this phone! It's easy to use, fast, and has great features. Would recommend it in a heartbeat.

Lynzy, South Africa. 20 March 2017

Love this product

johann, South Africa. 12 March 2017

A good phone for all intended purposes unfortunately its radiation emissions is exceptionally high. For obvious reasons it seems Huawei does not seem to disclose its SAR rating on the internet. I discovered this after using the phone for a month and I just got so fatigued and depressed. I realised the tingling in my hand was much worse when using my previous iphone 5s (which was already on the higher SAR scale by the way), and researched the matter of the P9 lite. very disappointing that Huawei and other manufacturers care more about sales that keeping their customers alive and well!!!

rashid, South Africa. 5 February 2017

awesome phone probably one of the best out there..

Nicolas, South Africa. 27 March 2017

I am really impressed with my P9 lite. The phone works very well. The phone had a screen protector and it came with a free back cover. This was quite useful. Very satisfied customer. P9 Lite definitely gives you more bang for your buck!

Joseph Mpho, South Africa. 3 February 2017

I did not believe there could be a better phone than a samsung or an iPhone until Huawei. this is indeed a great phone.

Jacques, South Africa. 23 January 2017

Awesome phone.

NATHIELLE, South Africa. 13 December 2016

Awesome phone for the price. I have a 13 hour day and the battery lasts me the entire day. Well done on battery life.

Emilio, South Africa. 24 January 2017

Amazing phone, performance is amazing and build quality is great

Jan, South Africa. 1 November 2016

This phone does everything I need to do (and a lot more) efficiently. Battery life is good. Great phone that can be recommended!

kgomotsego, South Africa. 7 December 2016

good product

Zander, South Africa. 31 January 2017

Very impressed with the phone and the speedy delivery! I highly recommend this product!

Sean, South Africa. 9 February 2017

The best phone I have ever bought in this price range

Is actually 3GB ram not 2
User interface is very sleek, similar to iPhone
Multiple theme customization options
Better than expected gaming performance
Good camera in lit conditions
Fingerprint scanner
Good quality speaker for music
Comes factory fitted with a screen cover
Has a phone protective cover in the box

Below average low light photographs
One of the SIM slots is taken up by SD card so you can't have a second data SIM
You need to setup your internet settings yourself,luckily I had done it previously

Overall very happy with product

Helen, South Africa. 4 September 2016

Great device and it comes with case. Enjoying it

Anne, South Africa. 13 August 2016

Comes with a case included, no need to buy it separately!

Teagan, South Africa. 20 March 2017

This is a awesome phone I really recommend it

Christopher, South Africa. 9 November 2016

Love it.

It has the same specs as any top flagship phone (3 gigs of ram and an Octa-core Processor). Battery is amazing, shape and feel is great. The EMUI OS skin for android is fast and clean cut, without most of the usual bloatware than Samsungs full up your device with.

The one and only flaw it has is that there is no Gyroscope, which means that VR is mostly incompatible. There is however a simulated gyroscope, which is better than nothing.

This is arguably the best bang for buck phone on the market. I'm officially changing from being a "SAM-boy" to an "Huawei-boy"!

Ian, South Africa. 19 November 2016

Best value for money on the market. Comes with a very nice case and a fitted screen protector. Sound quality with music absolutely excellent. No more tinny speaker! Excellent graphics, and FHD screen and great camera - I have an LGG3 and this camera is not far behind, I'm fussy about cameras and this one passes.

Suraj, South Africa. 1 January 2017

Worth it!!!

Lindokuhle, South Africa. 2 February 2017

Great phone! Came as advertised :)

Rainer, South Africa. 19 December 2016

Excellent phone, love the quick access to camera, calculator and recording options. Impressive product from China

Matt, South Africa. 30 January 2017

Amazing phone, comes with 3GB of RAM not 2 and does in fact have NFC support. Also comes with phone cover. Hands down best value for money phone on the market right now.

Xenel, South Africa. 4 January 2017

Very impressed with this phone. Its everything I want in a phone. And its excellent quality for a very affordable price. And the fact that you get a free phone cover is an absolute bonus!

Csaba, South Africa. 16 December 2016

A seriously good phone at the price. The octa-core processor, 3GB RAM and Andriod 6 combination makes it very quick. Battery life excellent. Size and weight perfect. Exceptional sound quality from speakers and full HD screen is great. Camera pro-mode a rarity in mid-range phones as is 13MP/8MP rear/front cameras. Only slight downside is dual sim OR single sim/micro SD combination - not both. Highly recommended.

Lucias, South Africa. 7 February 2017

I cannot complain

leon hart, South Africa. 8 December 2016



Denzil, South Africa. 7 February 2017

The phone is losing battery life very quickly. I have to charge the phone ever morning and night. The phone is very slow on downloading.

Gaegomodiwe Wendy, South Africa. 26 January 2017

i want the phone in a gold colour

Kallinicos, South Africa. 4 January 2017

Simple and easy to use. It looks better then most smart phones. Happy with my p9.

rekha, South Africa. 25 December 2016


Nathan, South Africa. 13 January 2017

I am happy with my purchase and the product.

Kereth, South Africa. 30 January 2017

Great phone with better features than the more expensive competitors. Very easy to use and excellent value.

Zakkiyya, South Africa. 3 March 2017

Its amazing...
Very easy to use and I love the color..

GABRIEL, South Africa. 20 March 2017

Good value for money and right up there with the best in terms of performance.

John, South Africa. 10 April 2017

It's early days for me to appreciate its comprehensive range of use but so far it looks a real treat and I look forward to much enjoyment from its use.
