Huawei P30 Lite: 48 megapixel camera phone for £329

Huawei P30 Lite

There is a new baby brother to the Huawei P30 Pro - a smartphone that currently gets our vote as the best camera phone. But the new P30 Lite offers a lot more than you might imagine for what you might have thought for a budget version of the clan - and particularly so as far as photographers are concerned.

The Huawei P30 Lite does not have the four cameras of the P30 Pro - but it does have a very respectable triple-lens set-up on the rear.  But the surprising thing is that the main camera actually offers a higher resolution than the P30 Pro - offering a resolution of 48 megapixels (compared with 40MP on the Pro).
