Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: Surprisingly, almost perfect


There's no such thing as the perfect smartphone, but the Mate 20 Pro is arguably as close as you can get right now. The Huawei device is unmatched in camera versatility, and on top of that it has every premium feature imaginable, like an in-screen...

Incredible cameras ; Plenty of premium features like an in-screen fingerprint reader ; Large high-resolution display ; Long battery life ; That Twilight finish

Easily scuffed screen ; Only takes proprietary storage cards ; EMUI looks dated ; No US availability

And Chevrolet's electric drag racer.

Want a powerhouse phone that'll turn heads? Try this


Want to carry the best tech you can fit in your pocket? Get this phone.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro goes above and beyond with exciting new features and an eye-catching design.

You can't use microSD cards to expand the storage. The main loudspeaker hidden in the charging port is muffled when you plug the phone in.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro's impressive list of features puts it unquestionably among the top phones of the year. Shame you can't buy it in the US.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro


Packed full of innovative features that challenge more conventional Android phones, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is one of the best phablets the US will never see.

Fast performance. Powerful camera. Back-to-back charging. Sleek design. Big battery.

No headphone jack. Huawei bloatware.

Every new Android phone has its gimmicks, but few employ them as well as Mate 20 Pro does. It's commendable to see Huawei push the envelope of hardware features without breaking £1000. The fact that its price tag undercuts the Galaxy Note 9, while...

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: the best phone America can’t get


Huge battery, slick design, and a superb processor, constrained by bad software and international relations

Battery lasts and lasts ; Blistering performance ; Gorgeous display ; 3D face unlock is fast and reliable ; Textured rear glass improves grip, resists scratches and fingerprints

Camera lacks the dynamic range of the Google Pixel ; Master AI image processing isn’t yet consistent enough to be trusted ; Some software bugs and annoyances

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: you’ll wish you could get one


2018 is perhaps one of Huawei's most exciting years yet. Almost like the script for a Hollywood blockbuster, the year began with a tragedy that seemed like a death sentence for the protagonist. It left its hero in a period of limbo, its future...

Top notch cameras with impressive Night Mode ; Quirky two-way wireless charging has potential ; Beautiful design, manageable size and weight ; Impressive performance and battery life

USB-C “speaker” can get blocked by charger ; Not available in the US

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Smartphone Review


Strong piece - The Huawei Mate 20 Pro's spec sheet is littered with flagship-level hardware, including the new Kirin 980 SoC, the currently fastest LTE modem in a consumer smartphone, reverse wireless charging and a fingerprint sensor underneath its...

high quality craftsmanship with great colour options ; first-class OLED display ; great triple camera ; fast MIMO Wi-Fi ; LTE Cat. 21 ; IP68-certified ; solid call quality ; precise GPS ; rapid SuperCharge and wireless charging ; dual VoLTE ; powerful SoC

nano memory card is a questionable choice ; sub-optimal main speaker placement ; only hybrid dual-SIM

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is a great smartphone that packs all kinds of flagship-level hardware. The device is the first that we have tested with the new Kirin 980 SoC and offers a more refined version of the P20 Pro’s already great triple rear-facing...

Our Huawei Mate 20 Pro review takes a look at this flagship device from the Chinese company which, while not easily found in the U.S., is readily available in Canada.

Slick design ; Fantastic performance ; Great battery life ; Great camera ; Includes clear protective case

Sound is somewhat lacking ; As with most flagships, on the pricey side ; Have to manually change from 40MP camera to take advantage of some features

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: the best flagship smartphone that you can’t get in the U.S.


Huawei recently launched their Mate 20 Pro in London. With regards to its hardware, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro's all-new all-glass design is a drastic change from its predecessor, the Mate 10 Pro. The Mate Huawei recently launched their Mate 20 Pro in...

Beautiful ergonomic design and form factor ; Brilliant curved OLED display ; In-screen fingerprint reader ; Excellent camera ; Long battery life ; Superb performance ; Feature-rich

Not available in the U.S. ; Software is a bit buggy

The Mate 20 Pro sets a new bar for flagships.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Review


The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is an all-out premium phone packed with the latest technology including a futuristic in-screen finger scanner, and a 3D face recognition system, an ambitious triple-camera, and a fast-charging battery, all encased in a beautiful...

Stylish design ; Beautiful OLED screen ; Generally fast performance ; Fast 40-watt charging ; Solid battery life ; Fast and reliable 3D face recognition ; New ultra-wide camera is nice to have ; Nice-sounding stereo speakers ; Support for wireless...

Pricey ; Gesture navigation is not perfectly polished ; New nanoSD cards required here are hard to come by ; In-screen fingerprint scanner is futuristic and cool, but also a bit fiddly ; Video quality is not quite great
