well-built ; accurate and fast location services ; LTE Cat.16 ; MIMO Wi-Fi ; 3.5 mm jack ; Android 9.0 Pie ; decent call quality ; dual VoLTE ; impressive triple rear-facing cameras ; bright IPS display ; flagship SoC ; long battery life ; quicker...

only IP53-certified ; no wireless charging ; no IR facial recognition ; PWM flicker ; nano-memory card instead of microSD card

The Huawei Mate 20 is a premium flagship just like its more-expensive sibling, the Mate 20 Pro. Huawei has equipped the Mate 20 with its Kirin 980 SoC, which makes the device as powerful as the Pro model. Moreover, the former’s lower resolution display...

Huawei Mate 20 Review

 

The Mate 20, Huawei's other, more affordable flagship, comes with the same fast, 7nm chip as the Pro version and has most of the tricks of its sibling…

Incredible, 2-day battery life ; Android’s most advanced 7nm chip ; Plentiful 128GB internal storage

Pricey for what it is ; LCD screen is not quite as great as some AMOLEDs ; Camera is just decent, not on par with the best ; Unclear future software update situation ; Gesture navigation is not perfectly polished ; Loudspeaker is too quiet

Huawei Mate 20 review: Not as good as the Mate 20 Pro and a bit too wide for comfort Review | ZDNet

 

The Mate 20 Pro is an outstanding flagship, but for €150 less you can pick up a less capable Mate 20. It's a bit too wide and has an LCD screen, but still has a headphone jack and three rear cameras.

Gorgeous fit, finish, and design ; Outstanding battery life ; Perfectly placed fingerprint scanner ; 3.5mm headset jack, FM radio, and IR receiver

Minimal level of dust/water resistance ; No support for wireless charging ; Proprietary nano memory card format

Huawei Mate 20 review: everything you need... in XXL | AndroidPIT

 

Huawei has introduced three new additions to its Mate series, and the Mate 20 is in the middle ground between the Lite and Pro models. But that doesn't mean the device is mediocre, since it still has a lot to offer. We tested the Mate 20 and we'll tell...

I'm not going to beat around the bush: when I like something, I really like it. The Huawei Mate 20 has been an extension of my hand for several weeks now. And I won't trade it in for another device anytime soon. It's dazzled me from the beginning to...

Huawei's Mate 20 Pro Is a Technical Marvel

 

If we judged the new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro like Olympic figure skaters, they'd no doubt earn 10s across the board for technical merit. That's because even though they don't have a built-in stylus, Huawei's new flagship phone duo offers almost every...

Gorgeous color options, great battery life, triple rear cams, more features than any other phone on the market

Huawei Mate 20 Hands-on Review: A Notch Above

 

The Huawei Mate 20 proves that you can have a notch and make it look good. The triple cameras and 7-nanometer Kirin 980 CPU look good, too.

Huawei Mate 20 with Kirin 980 processor in the works?

 

Huawei's new with a triple camera system is a pretty impressive looking device, but it packs the same Kirin 970 processor as last year's smartphones.

Huawei develops the Kirin line of processors in-house, and rumor has it that the new Kirin 980 chip will be manufactured using TSMC’s 7nm technology and feature ARM Cortex-A75 CPU cores, Bluetooth 5.0, and an updated version of Huawei’s NPU, or neural...

Huawei Mate 20 review: Say hi to the ‘Dewdrop’ notch | Trusted Reviews

 

Huawei Mate 20 review, price, specs: Huawei's Mate 20 sits below the Mate 20 Pro, but offers a couple of different design ideas

Great performance ; Fully featured camera ; Tidy notched design

EMUI is a bit ugly ; Facial recognition isn’t secure ; Too many gimmicky camera modes

The Huawei Mate 20 offers lightning-fast performance and a comprehensive list of features, with a clever bill of compromises to help meet its £500 price tag. It’s a genuine OnePlus 6T rival.
