Focus on battery
A standout feature across the P55 series is the focus on battery life. The P55 4G and P55 Plus pack a 5000mAh battery with AI Power Master, while the P55T and P55 5G boast an even larger 6000mAh battery. This promises extended usage for everyday tasks and entertainment, a key selling point for budget users.
However, when it comes to charging, the P55, P55T, and the P55 5G are given an 18W fast charger. The P55 Plus on the other hand gets a larger 45W fast charger.
Consistent display across all models:
The P55 series also prioritizes display quality. All models feature a 6.6-inch HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate, delivering a smooth and enjoyable experience for watching videos, gaming, or browsing the web.
It is worth noting however, that while the P55 4G, P55T, and the P55T come with a center-punch notch, the P55 5G uses a dewdrop display giving it a slightly different look from its siblings.
