Huawei Mate 20 Pro Review

With Huawei, which is now firmly rooted as one of the world's finest phone makers (Apple has moved as the second largest shipment of equipment earlier this year), the Chinese company is really convinced to meet this new fact.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro (and its less powerful brother, Mate 20) are the latest flagship of the company that is trying to create its place at the top of the market. Huawei has shed hundreds of millions of dollars in research and development over the past few years because it seems to create something really strange, so could this last device be?

Like the next step along the Huawei flagship, Mate 20 Pro has been inspired by past versions of the company and its competitors to avoid the crowd.

Just like its predecessor, Mate 20 has a glass back and screen – although this device comes with a much larger cut, which is Huawei's latest P20 Pro logo, whose display now resembles the Apple iPhone X display.

On its front display 6.39 there is also a much more pronounced curve. Despite the fact that it sounded bigger, Huawei cut the outline around the display to a minimum, especially on the screen side, where applications and websites are overflowing so exploitation is so fun.

Larger screen also means a more detailed view of 1440 x 3120 pixels, making Mate 20 Pro clear and detailed – although it also turns out to be an incredible fingerprint magnet, and our screen quickly blurs.

This is quite a problem, as Huawei puts the fingerprint reader for the first time in the display – which means that the initial piercing of the sensor can be triggered and the polishing of greasy fingerprints can be triggered.

What stands out for Mate 20 Pro from the crowd is the back of the device, where you'll find the latest innovations in design – the Leica with three lenses. An amazing arrangement places three lenses and lightning into a square formation in a unique design that's pretty nice – but we'll come later.

At 189g, Mate 20 Pro is slightly heavier than the P20 Pro, but this small gain is incredible due to the larger display and larger battery. It's still quite a hood, but it comfortably fits into your pocket.

As with its predecessor, the glass back panel means that Mate 20 Pro is somewhat slippery to hold, and we would be reluctant to get a briefcase for this extraordinary level of safety.

Together with enhanced imaging and design, Huawei has once again tried to deploy its latest flagship device with state-of-the-art and state-of-the-art hardware.

Mate 20 Pro is powered by Huawei's latest chip, Kirin 980, which is said to be the world's first 7nm AI chipset, as well as the first Cortex A-76 CPU. It includes a new dual NPU layout that helps increase the AI's performance on the device, one unit takes care of tasks such as image recognition, and the other deals with more complex tasks such as video streaming, along with a 6 GB memory and internal 128 GB storage space

All this combines to make the Mate 20 Pro a seamless experience right from the start of a device that runs in seconds. Browsing menus and applications has been smooth and fast, thanks to the fact that Mate 20 Pro is able to easily handle multiple applications and services at once without overheating or signs of delay.

Power is delivered through a huge 4200 mAh battery (420 mAh on the P20 Pro) that Huawei says can easily deliver two days of life, which we have seen regularly in the weeks spent using this device.

Mate 20 Pro also offers the latest version of Huawei's SuperCharge service, which is now able to deliver 70% battery life from just 30 minutes of charging – a potential savior if you're out and exhausting juice.

We touched the striking appearance of the camera with four lenses above, and Leica continued her relationship with Huawei for Mate 20 Pro.

Included in the square shape is a new 20 MP ultra-wide angle sensor that lets you get even more in your photos, along with a large 8MP close-up telephoto lens and a 40MP main sensor combining to get super-detailed pictures even in low light .

In short, Mate 20 Pro has everything you need for a great smartphone experience – especially from the inside.

Mate 20 Pro can be strong on isnide and a great look – but how does it work in everyday use?

Again, the device runs on Android 9.0 with Huawei EMUI, and there are a few more questions. It is clear that Huawei is trying to grow a strong user base independent of the Google Android ecosystem, but Mate 20 Pro is preloaded with a large number of tools and applications that are simply unnecessary or simply unnecessary.

The company deserves recognition for trying to go its own way with services such as health surveillance and proprietary music and video platforms but will most likely be quickly included in a separate folder. Fortunately, Huawei has provided a wide range of customization options that enable users not only to create folders and to move files easily, but also to customize the appearance of displays through Themes.

Otherwise, however, all of Google's usual services are offered, which are immediately synchronized with G Suite and Google Assistant, and provide you with quick access to all of your files.

In a similar fashion, the fingerprint reader in the Mate 20 Pro device proved to be relatively inaccurate, and on several occasions responded slowly, often with two or three attempts to uncover and unlock the device. Because most of us will want to unlock quickly and access the phone ten times a day, this is a fundamental mistake – but the face recognition alternative worked smoothly and could be a viable alternative.

As mentioned above, using Mate 20 Pro on a daily basis (once it is unlocked) is a smooth and fast experience and many other manufacturers can learn.

Operative part

There is no doubt that Huawei Mate 20 Pro is a fantastic device – in fact, there are more than a few convincing arguments that say it is the best Android device in today's market.

With an elegant and slim design that is compatible with great hardware and all-day battery life, it's a very impressive device and that if you get into your hands, you should.

However, the high price (£ 899 without SIM) and the proprietary memory system, as well as EMUI problems and unreliable fingerprint scanning are undeniable – as well as the nasty idea that the Huawei P20 Pro offers much the same assertion, but probably at a lower price.

There are still questions about the overall offer, but if you're looking for a versatile titanium smartphone, then Huawei Mate 20 Pro is for you.
