Huawei Mate 10 Lite Review: Performance

Performance

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite is powered by the Kirin 659 chipset developed in-houtilize by Huawei's HiSilicon subsidiary. It's a minor step over the Kirin 658, obviously. It has an octa-core Central Processing Units (CPU) with eight A53 cores. Four of those hold the heavy lifting and work at 2.36GHz, while the other four hold care of less power-intensive tasks while ticking at 1.7GHz.

The GPU in charge of graphics is a dual-core Mali-T830, and Huawei also throws in 4 gigs of RAM.


The 659 chip has 10Mega Hertz (MHz) higher clock for the faster Central Processing Units (CPU) quarter and newer Bluetooth 4.2 support when compared to the 658 model. It's dropped the 5Giga Hertz (GHz) Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) connectivity though.

The chip is built on a 16nm fabrication process, which isn't the most power-efficient process used for mid-range chipsets correct now, but not that far behind the widespread 14nm either. So we expect the Kirin 659 to haged the phone rather cool at full throttle.

We kick off our benchimprint routine with some processor torture as usual. A single A53 core can't acquire you very far on Geekbench, but at least its result offers consistent midrange performance results.

The consistent score continues with the high-performance quartet on the multi-core Geekbench test - the Mate 10 Lite is on par with the mid-range competition. The Snapdragon 660-powered R11 have an edge thanks to the Cortex-A72 pair.

The Mali-T830MP2 isn't a powerful GPU, but the series has proven over the past few months to offer balanced graphic performance for the class - nothing over the top, but enough. And our graphic tests confirm that. All competing Adreno GPUs by elegant Qualcomm are obviously better, while the Mate 10 Lite's Mali offers the bare minimum for the class.

Our performance checkup continues with the compound tests - those gauge GPU, CPU, RAM, Web and Operating System (OS) performance. Here the Mate 10 Lite bested most of its competitors with similar chipsets posting some remarkable all-round scores. The Oppo R11 and Honor 9 are obviously better with their premium chips and slashed prices, though.

Huawei Mate 10 Lite is well equipped for the class and won't fail you at any task. It handles organizing tasks hassle-free, and we had no problems playing popular games, though loading takes a while and hiccups do happen. The phone runs cool even at full throttle, so don't expect any heat problems no matter how you utilize it. It isn't a chart topper, sure, not even next to fellow mid-ranges, but the Mate 10 Lite offers balanced performance, and that's enough.
