Facebook Lite Login Page

Facebook Lite Login Page, Early today, Facebook published a new, lost weight version of their app dubbed Facebook Lite to the Google Play Shop. Targeted at low-end gadgets in emerging markets where cellular information is a little slower, we have to confess, we were plenty excited at the prospect of a 2G-friendly variation of the normally bloated Facebook app.

Right after setup, our optimism was met cold difficult truth-- this app was little more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's almost identical to checking out m.facebook.com). Okay, so there are some key differences. There's no videos (like, at all) and unlike opening Facebook in your phone's web browser, Facebook Lite will supply you with push alerts on your Android device, convenient if you're awaiting an important message and wish to stay up to date with friends without having to refresh the internet browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is promoted as less than 1MB (252KB), but really used up 1.16 MB after installation-- demands a fair amount of permissions from your Android device, much like the complete fledged 114MB (after installation) routine variation of the app (just without the place data). Oh, did we discuss it's sluggish?

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

We believe Facebook actually had something here and were really hoping for a quicker, lighter, less feature heavy, Facebook app for those of who don't require all the frill of sticker stores and so forth. Sadly, Facebook Lite truly just does not cut it.

Facebook Lite is currently 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 elsewhere who 'd still prefer to offer it a shot, you can download it from us through the link listed below.
