Huawei P Smart 2019 review
A display stunner
In our Huawei P Smart 2019 review, we find a true stunner where the display notch has been reduced to a simple dewdrop. The dewdrop notch gives this Huawei phone a unique and premium look, yet it is far from the most expensive phone on the market.
The Huawei P Smart 2019 has a 6.21” FullView Display with FHD+ resolution. FHD+ equates to 1,080x 2,340 pixels (415 pixels per inch), which shows off even the smallest of details.

The display has a small notch for the camera lens and this dewdrop style is made possible by moving the earpiece to just above the display. There is also a certified Eye Comfort mode that takes the strain out of long smartphone sessions in the evening.
Ceramic-like texture and GPU Turbo
A 3D curved unibody with a glossy ceramic-like texture makes the Huawei P Smart 2019 a pleasure to hold. It also looks good in either Coral Red, Aurora Blue, Sapphire Blue or Midnight Black. This mobile is very light at 160g and has an average thickness at 7.95mm.
There is good news in the performance department with a Hisilicon Kirin 710 2.2GHz octa-core processor with 3GB RAM. Coupled with GPU Turbo tech, this phone brings gaming-grade performance with lowered power consumption.

Phone Set Up
The Huawei P Smart 2019 makes unlocking easy with Face Unlock. You can, in addition, or instead of Face Unlock, use the fingerprint sensor, which is position on the back. The fingerprint sensor is easy to find with your index finger and it is useful to have in situations where Face Unlock doesn’t work, such as in the dark.
Two models are on offer with one having a 32GB memory and the other having a 64GB memory. Both memory options offer plenty to get started with and you can expand the memory by up to another 512GB, by inserting a memory card.
The EMUI 9.0 user interface enhances the Android 9 Pie operating system and adds a few extra apps and features that you might enjoy. One such feature is AI Smart Shopping.
With AI Smart Shopping you can scan any product or long press on it when the camera is open. When you do either of these actions you will get links to e-commerce shopping websites, where you can buy the product or compare prices online.
Camera & Video
Dual AI Camera
The Huawei P Smart 2019 has a dual AI camera that assists you with AI real-time scene recognition of 22 categories and 500 scenarios. Shooting photos in AI mode sees the camera changing the settings automatically and you would probably struggle to get a photo of the same quality by tinkering around in pro mode.

The main camera has a 13MP lens and a 2MP lens and these can work together to capture natural-looking bokeh effects. On the opposite side, there is an 8MP AI Selfie camera that recognises eight different selfie scenes.
