Huawei P20 Pro: A photographer’s dream

 

Huawei P20 Pro Review, Price and Release Date: How does Huawei's latest flagship compare to the competition? Let's find out.

Fantastic tri-camera ; Plenty of storage and RAM ; Stunning design ; EMUI interface has come a long way

No 3.5mm headphone jack ; There are faster phones ; No wireless charging

The Huawei P20 Pro sports a massive 4000mAh non-removable battery, which is more than enough to see the handset through at least two days of intermediate use – and it did on more than one occasion. I was unhooking the unit at 7:30 am and using it to...

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...

Lumia 1020 vs. Huawei P20 Pro

 

While most makers are coming up with all sorts of different dual camera setups, Huawei figured that's no longer enough and fitted three on the back of the P20 Pro. But 3 is not the number that's captivated us most; rather, it's 40 - the P20 Pro comes...

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 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

 

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: 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 hands on

 

How many lenses do you think is appropriate for a smartphone camera?

Although we only spend a dozen hours or so with the P20 Pro, Huawei’s approach to hardware marks a change from its smartphones of last year, which were centered on their AI capabilities.

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...
