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.

Mate 20: What's the cheapest monthly deal?

The cheapest monthly cost for the Mate 20 currently is £10.50 a month. Although this varies depending on how much upfront you want to pay - if you are looking to spend about £100 upfront then there are a number of deals on the Huawei Mate 20 available right now via pay monthly.

Mate 20 deals: How long does delivery take?

If your device is in stock with the retailer, then most orders will be shipped by them within 24 hours so you could have your phone tomorrow morning. If it's a pre-order then we will let you know the approximate delivery date

Is SIM Only better for Mate 20?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Huawei Mate 20, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Huawei Mate 20 ee contract or a Huawei Mate 20 Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Huawei Mate 20 contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 942 Huawei Mate 20 deals, our cheapest Huawei Mate 20 deal over the entire life of the contract is £811.99, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Huawei Mate 20 SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Huawei Mate 20 handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Huawei Mate 20 Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Huawei Mate 20 phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
