2020 is the year that many of us will make the move to work from home. Not only will this change where we work, but how we work.
You can expect mobile devices to play a larger role — from receiving calls to uploading documents and keeping track of emails.
Here are several reasons the Huawei P40 lite makes the perfect work-from-home device…
Battery life that keeps you going
If you’re using your smartphone to keep track of emails, messages, and calls, you need a device that you won’t have to charge midway through the day.
The P40 lite comes with an impressive 4200mAh battery that lasts through the day.
You can run multiple apps, get on calls, and keep up-to-date without worrying about your battery running empty.
Top up your P40 lite battery in minutes
Meanwhile, the affordability of the P40 lite doesn’t mean that you have to give up perks like fast charging. The smartphone comes with 40W SuperCharge support.
If you forget to charge your phone before your work day begins, you can top your phone’s battery in minutes — up to 70% in just 30 minutes, in fact.
Multitask seamlessly thanks to ample RAM
The P40 lite carries 6GB of RAM, making it easy to multitask across apps and enjoy the benefits of the phone’s productivity software.
You don’t have to worry about whether the phone can handle switching between documents and running multiple apps. Thanks to its RAM and processor, it will handle these tasks with ease.
MeeTime: Video call quality you can be proud of
With so many remote meetings and interviews, we’re getting used to seeing calls with low-quality video.
But with the P40 lite and MeeTime, you can hold video calls you can be proud of.
The P40 lite is set to get EMUI 10.1 when the update rolls out globally, which will bring MeeTime to the device.
The software lets you enjoy HD voice and video calls to other devices with MeeTime. You can even enable a beauty filter if you’re feeling self-conscious.
Easy sharing between your phone and PC
Huawei’s Mobile Cloud makes it easy to backup your files and access them on your PC.
But what if you want to share and print files wirelessly? Huawei Share lets you do this easily with devices on the same network as your phone.
You can also project your phone’s screen to any display with Miracast support with Cast+. Simply switch on Wireless Projection in your status bar. This lets you control your phone from a computer without needing additional apps or mirroring tools.
With EMUI 10.1, these capabilities will be even further enhanced with multi-screen collaboration. The feature lets you connect to your PC with a simple tap — allowing you to edit files or open web pages from your phone using PC applications.
Switching to desktop mode gives you the familiar feel of a PC interface. So if a laptop is out of your budget, you can turn your P40 lite into a portable computer with a small Bluetooth display and wireless keyboard – no phone dock needed.
Sync email accounts to one central app
With Huawei’s Email app, you don’t have to worry about setting up forwarding or fiddling with configuration settings to set up your email.
If you have an Outlook, Gmail, or Hotmail address for work, you can simply log into the account with the Email app and authorise it.
You can then receive and send emails from one central app.
P40 lite: An affordable phone for both work and home
The P40 lite is not only a perfect device for working from home, it’s an affordable device that you can enjoy using every day.
When you’re not at your desk, the P40 lite provides a great camera, responsive UI, and seamless multitasking. It’s a premium experience on a mid-range device.
