Huawei P20 Pro review: Three rear cameras, and a lot more

 

Huawei's new P20 and P20 Pro are this year's updates to the well-received P10 and P10 Plus . The main pre-launch talking point about the P20 Pro was its three-camera setup at the rear which, along with AI features, delivers exceptional photography...

Excellent triple-camera system ; 128GB of internal storage ; Dual SIM ; 4,000mAh battery

Awkwardly located fingerprint sensor ; No MicroSD expansion ; USB-C or Bluetooth for headset connection

Huawei P20 Pro

 

The Huawei P20 Pro one-ups the camera phone competition by adding a third telephoto sensor, giving you improved long-distance firepower.

Unique tri-lens camera. 5x lossless hybrid zoom is seriously impressive. AI chip offers improved photo scene recognition.

Not officially available in the US. Expensive. Glass body attracts smudges. Notched screen will not be to everyone's liking.

In the UK, the P20 Pro is available to buy on contract now. In the US, your best bet is to order it through a reliable importer and you can expect to pay north of $1,100. That's a hefty premium over the Galaxy S9+, which starts at $840, and even the...

Huawei P20 Pro review

 

The Huawei P20 Pro is the best Android smartphone we've used this year

Astonishingly capable camera ; Great design with eye-catching twilight color scheme ; Long-lasting battery ; Fast, capable performance ; Helpful artificial intelligence features

Not available in the U.S. ; No wireless charging

The Huawei P20 Pro is the best Android smartphone we’ve used this year, with an exciting, fun camera, a gutsy battery, and drop-dead good looks. It’s a damn shame you (ridiculously) can’t officially buy one if you live in the U.S.

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The Best Phone You Can’t Buy

 

Huawei set out to build the best smartphone camera in the world with the P20 Pro. And while the company didn't completely succeed, it managed a solution to a problem that has dogged the likes of Apple, Google and Samsung for the better part of a...

14-hour battery life ; Amazing low-light performance ; Android 8.1 Oreo ; Great performance ; Eye-catching design

No U.S. availability ; Expensive ; AI camera filters hit or miss

Huawei's triple-camera marvel takes stunning low-light shots, but it’s not quite a replacement for the Galaxy S9 or iPhone X overall.

Huawei P20 Pro review: the three-eyed monster

 

Huawei has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence in recent years, and it should continue like this. But after the P10, which was a rather modest development, an impressive new flagship is needed. This is exactly what the Huawei P20 Pro, the top model of...

High-quality, modern finish ; Very good camera ; Powerful Battery ; Current operating system ; Dual SIM with LTE ; Exellent call quality

No wireless charging ; Material is slippery ; Memory isn't expandable

The test shows it clearly: Huawei moves with the P20 Pro on about the same level as Samsung with the Galaxy S9 or Apple with the latest iPhone. In many cases, this luxury class smartphone decides on the personal taste or a single feature that is...

Huawei P20 review: a beautiful phone, but we miss the P20 Pro's camera

 

The P20 is a beautiful phone, but it doesn't have the innovative camera found in the P20 Pro, and that's a shame

Premium design ; A pretty decent camera ; Improved software ; Perfect size

Unoriginal design ; No triple camera system ; UI isn't perfect

Huawei P20 Pro review

 

Taking Huawei phones to the next level

Great battery life ; Ultra-flexible camera ; Beautiful Design

No wireless charging ; OLED screen could be better ; EMUI needs to improve

A great battery life, top specs and the most compelling use of computational photography seen in a phone yet make the Huawei P20 Pro one of the most interesting phones available.

Huawei P20 Pro review: A new phone camera king is born

 

Huawei has arguably produced the best phone of 2018 in the P20 Pro. It looks great, lasts an age per charge, the camera is a top-ranking effort, and

Stunning design with superb colour finishes ; Excellent battery life ; A camera that genuinely matches the best in class ; Impressive sound quality ; All the power and performance you’ll need

No wireless charging ; Face Unlock still miles behind Apple’s equivalent ; The notch (can be software hidden ; Though) ; ‘Portrait’ bokeh still off the mark ; Some software foibles

Huawei's product output has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs over the last couple of years. But those software lows in the P8 and screen issues in the P10 have been used as educational stepping stones. Sure, some may still struggle to get over the...

Huawei P20 Pro review: Is three cameras the magic number?

 

This premium Android phone has an iPhone X-style notch and not one, not two, but three rear cameras!

Premium design ; Triple camera system ; Improved software ; Great battery life

Design lacks originality ; UI still isn't perfect

Huawei P20 Pro initial review: Shooting for the camera phone crown

 

Huawei has skipped from P10 to P20 for the nomenclature of its new phones. When asked, the company confirmed to us that this was because it was a huge

The Huawei P20 Pro is certainly an exciting phone. The design might feel like it follows the iPhone, but grab yourself the Twilight version and you've got a great-looking handset. The Pro is very much trying to live up to that name and give you...
