About Huawei Mate 20 - Review, Specs + more

The Huawei Mate 20 does not have to hide from its bigger brother, the Mate 20 Pro as we firmly believe that in some cases it surpasses the Pro model, with its impressive battery life and cheaper price.  Also in terms of performance, display and camera, it delivers top scores and thus appears very high in the oneCOMPARE mobile leaderboard. Only the equipment is not quite up to the level of the Mate 20 Pro - but you also pay about £150 less, so is it worth opting for the regular Mate 20?

Benefits of the Mate 20:

  • Triple camera with ultra-wide-angle lens
  • Large 6.5 inch LCD display
  • Extremely long battery life
  • Cheaper than the Mate 20 Pro with almost no discernible differences

Huawei Mate 20 - Display

When you first set eyes on the Mate 20 one might think one has been given the Pro model by mistake. In the glass case it looks pretty posh and it's clear immediately that the workmanship is high quality.

The camera on the back looks exactly like the one of the Mate 20 Pro, as it is also symmetrical to the central axis and consists of three lenses. Together with a LED flash, it forms into a square and protrudes minimally out of the case. We agree with this review that it's actually better like this.

One difference with the Mate 20, however, is  that the fingerprint sensor sits below the camera on the back and is - unlike the Pro - not integrated into the display. And a quick word on this now that we're onto that camera: let me tell you that it reacts very quickly (more on this later).

LCD - not OLED

The Mate 20 boasts a 18.7: 9 ratio, but one-handed operation is a little difficult if you have smaller hands. The display is huge and Huawei have done well here. It measures 6.5 inches in diagonal and has at the top of the screen a kind of recessed notch shaped like a droplet . The is a little smaller than the Pro model, since Huawei didn't add any 3D face recognition sensor here to cut costs. The benefit of this is that, aside from price, the display is almost borderless.

Since the Mate 20 does not come with an OLED screen, but a cheaper LCD display, it does not portray rich, deep  colours as strongly as the Mate 20 Pro. To be honest, this is the only real drawback of this model, but the display still covers 132% of the standard RGB colour space.

The resolution can not quite keep up with the Mate 20 Pro, as you would expect, but it is sufficiently sharp with 2,244 x 1,080 pixels (FHD +) and a pixel density of 381 ppi always. At 443 candelas per square metre, it does not emit as much light as the Pro model (565 candelas per square metre) or the iPhone XS (673 candelas per square metre).

Perks and Benefits of the Mate 20

The features of the Huawei Mate 20 are clear, although there are of course a few negatives that Huawei has implemented in the hope that you buy the more expensive Mate 20 Pro model:

The device supports LTE Cat 16, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC. An infrared transmitter for the control of AV devices is also included.

Interested buyers will also be pleased that Huawei continues to rely on the headphone jack connector: Apple, HTC and Google renounced it, and even the Pro model of the Mate 20 has removed it, but the Mate 20 has actually retained it.

Android 9.0 Pie is running on the smartphone at the time of testing under Huawei's user interface EMUI 9.0.
