Facebook Lite Login Page

Facebook Lite Login Page, Early today, Facebook uploaded a new, slimmed down variation of their app called Facebook Lite to the Google Play Shop. Focused on low-end gadgets in emerging markets where cellular data is a little slower, we need to admit, we were plenty delighted at the prospect of a 2G-friendly version of the generally bloated Facebook app.

Not long after setup, our optimism was consulted with cold tough reality-- this app was little more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's nearly identical to checking out m.facebook.com). Okay, so there are some crucial differences. There's no videos (like, at all) and unlike opening Facebook in your phone's web internet browser, Facebook Lite will provide you with push alerts on your Android gadget, convenient if you're waiting on a crucial message and wish to keep up with good friends without having to revitalize the browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is advertised as less than 1MB (252KB), however actually took up 1.16 MB after setup-- requests a reasonable amount of consents from your Android gadget, similar to the complete fledged 114MB (after setup) routine version of the app (just without the area data). Oh, did we mention it's sluggish?



Even on WiFi, the app is slow to load, slow to scroll, and slow to change between News Feed, your messages, and alerts. Even with a high-end Snapdragon 801 equipped Android gadget, the "app" directly up seems like molasses. But as we discussed, you do get direct access to your messages without having to set up Facebook Messenger, so there's that.

We think Facebook really had something here and were really expecting a quicker, lighter, less feature heavy, Facebook app for those of who do not need all the frill of sticker shops and so on. Unfortunately, Facebook Lite truly simply does not cut it.

Facebook Lite is presently readily available for all Android 2.2+ gadgets in Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, or Zimbabwe via the Play Store. Those living somewhere else who had actually still want to offer it a shot, you can download it from us through the link listed below.
