Metal halide perovskite solar cell (PSC) has successfully distinguished itself in optoelectronic field by virtue of the sharp rise in power conversion efficiency over the past decade. The remarkable efficiency breakthrough at such a fast speed can be mainly attributed to the comprehensive study on film deposition techniques, especially the effective management of surface and interfacial defects in recent works. Herein, we summarized the current trends in performance enhancement for PSCs, with a focus on the generally applicable strategies in high-performance works, involving deposition methods, compositional engineering, additive engineering, crystallization manipulation, charge transport material selection, interfacial passivation, optical coupling effect and constructing tandem solar cells. Promising directions and perspectives are also provided.
