Editors' Review

Weighing just 286KB, the recently released Facebook Lite brings the essential Facebook experience to budget phones with 2G connections.

Pros

Works great on a budget phone: Facebook Lite enables you to check your feed, read and post comments, share photos and updates, message friends, and glance through notifications with ease. It loads quickly, eats little to no system resources, and seems to be bug free.

Fast and smooth: This lite version impresses with its snappy performance, loading images and posts in no time and providing a fluid scrolling experience.

Light as a feather: While the original Facebook app weighs around 27MBs, this lite version weighs just 286KB.

Cons

Not available everywhere: Facebook Lite caters to users in less developed countries, so it's not available in the United States or Western Europe.

Could be prettier: Compared to the original, this app looks a bit like an ugly duckling, having an unappealing icon and a somewhat dull look to it.

Bottom Line

Facebook deserves a big thumbs-up for launching Facebook Lite, a lightweight alternative to its main app that works like a charm and weighs close to nothing. Too bad this app isn't available everywhere, or else many people with powerful smartphones would be tempted to grab it as a replacement to the original Facebook app. If you can download this app in your country, we recommend you try it out.
