Huawei Mate 20 Pro review | Trusted Reviews

 

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review, features, price and release date: The Mate 20 Pro packs a ludicrous amount of stuff inside its svelte body.

Great display ; Very fast charging ; Plenty of clever tricks such as in-display fingerprint and reverse wireless charging ; Battery life is fantastic

Huawei’s software remains a weakness

Huawei’s phones just keep on getting better. The Mate 20 Pro is full of great features and offers up an excellent alternative to any other flagship phone on the market right now.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: a rapid, stunning, and feature-packed flagship that you'll simply fall in love with

 

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is one of, if not the, best smartphones ever made, delivering an experience that leaves nothing to be desired. Read T3's official Huawei Mate 20 Pro review now…

Gorgeous, premium design ; Bright and vivid OLED, HDR display ; Kirin 980 CPU is insanely fast ; Leica-made camera system is superb ; Futuristic in-display fingerprint reader ; Capacious 4,200 mAh battery ; Android 9.0 Pie out of the box

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: The Pro you'll want to know

 

Gorgeous design outshines even the Galaxy S9+ ; In-screen fingerprint scanner is the best of its kind ; Triple rear camera arrangement offers the best capabilities on the market ; Huge battery capacity that lasts for an age ; Fast-charging (40W) and Qi...

Square camera arrangement isn't pretty ; EMUI software hiccups - audible 'click' in silent mode and notifications issues for some apps ; No 3.5mm jack ; Some AI camera features are overzealous ; No Qi wireless charger in the box

By combining the highest quality design, arguably the best cameras in any smartphone, and future-facing features such as an in-screen fingerprint scanner, the Mate 20 Pro asserts that it's among the top flagship phones of 2018. Divisive software with...

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review

 

Meet our new best Mate

Surprising compact design ; Incredible camera versatility ; Jam packed with tech

No headphone jack ; GPU not as impressive as CPU ; Speaker could be louder

A phone with more tech per square inch than any other. A smartphone marvel

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: Bursting at the seams with features

 

An improvement on the P20 and packed with clever features, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is a serious contender for best smartphone of the year

Fantastic camera quality ; Fast performance ; Good battery life

Kirin 980 not optimised for all games yet ; Expensive

The question that remains is whether or not punters are going to be willing to stump up this much for a phone that doesn’t come from the stable of one of the more established names. In my opinion, they absolutely should because the Huawei Mate 20 Pro...
