Huawei P20 Pro review: The best phone you'll never buy

 

Huawei is dealing with its fair share of trouble in the US, but that doesn't mean it forgot how to make a great phone. From build quality to design to camera performance, the P20 Pro is every bit a first-rate flagship smartphone. That doesn't mean it...

Stunning design and build quality ; 2+ day battery life ; Impressive Leica triple camera system ; Solid performance

Not for sale in the US ; The notch will bug some people ; No headphone jack ; Camera’s Master AI can be overzealous

Chris is Engadget's senior mobile editor and moonlights as a professional moment ruiner. His early years were spent taking apart Sega consoles and writing awful fan fiction. That passion for electronics and words would eventually lead him to covering...

Huawei P20 Pro review

 

Huawei was among the front-runners in the dual-camera race with the P9 and then the Mate 10, so who better to take things to the next level? The Huawei P20 Pro one-ups all current major players and comes with three cameras on its back, each unique in...

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

 

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: style and substance from an unlikely source

 

If you've been waiting for a phone that can upset the Apple-Samsung duopoly, this is it

Epic battery life ; Lovely, sophisticated design ; Exceptional camera system ; High-quality display

Software adaptations to the notch could be better ; No headphone jack ; Master AI image processing isn’t perfectly consistent ; No wireless charging

Instead of gimmicks and gaudiness, the Huawei P20 Pro delivers refinement and efficiency. That’s a major change for Huawei, which could previously be relied upon to be the fastest iPhone copycat in the East. With Huawei’s rapid improvement, Apple and...

The Huawei P20 & P20 Pro Review: Great Battery Life & Even Better Night Vision

 

For me, Huawei holds a special place among device manufacturers, as the Honor 6 and Mate 7 were the two first reviews I had written on AnandTech. This was back before Huawei found wide-spread success both in China as well as western markets, so it...

Overall I think it’s going to be a very subjective decision based on what the buyer wants to prioritise, especially when it comes to battery life and camera experience. If you value battery life over everything else, then the P20’s are your go-to...

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

 

What with all the attention the Huawei P20 Pro has captured lately, you'd think the company would be having a good year. Then again, high-profile criticism by the US government hasn't exactly done wonders for the Chinese phone-maker's sales, nor its...

Well-constructed and great color options ; Triple camera system is legitimately impressive ; Display is bright and has great viewing angles ; Two day battery life is class-leading

No official US availability ; EMUI atop Android Oreo still feels unnecessary ; No support for wireless charging ; Camera AI can be heavy-handed with its processing

Huawei P20 & P20 Pro Review

 

The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro come with a new design (with a notch!) and with an exciting new camera system with high aspirations...

Excellent camera on P20 Pro, especially for night photos ; Beautiful gradient glass back ; High quality OLED display on P20 Pro ; Great loudspeaker quality ; Plentiful 128GB storage

Blatant Apple copy ; EMUI custom interface has dated looks, glitchy ; Pricey for what it is ; No wireless charging

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 Review

 

Huawei has very lofty ambitions, and considering it has to take on the behemoths that are Samsung and Apple (as well as that other little known company, Google), it has to pull out all the stops when it comes to the camera/s provided.
