About Huawei P20 - Review, Specs + more

With the P20, Huawei offers a high-end alternative to Apple and Samsung top dogs. This 4G smartphone has a bright display and — compared to its predecessor — a much improved camera. You can use it comfortably even with smaller hands. We're big fans here at oneCompare, so let's get reviewing...

P20: Leica lenses and great AI

The highlight of the P20 is most definitely the rear camera with 12- and 20 megapixel lenses from Leica. According to TechRadar the cameras produces sharp, colourful and detailed pictures and they reckon it is even better than the cameras of the much more expensive Galaxy S9 and even iPhone X.

Only the Google Pixel 3A takes even better pictures.

Staying on the camera: compared to its predecessor (naturally called the P10, now out of production), the P20 has significantly less photographic noise. Instead, you get bright and high-contrast photos that'll make you look like a pro. The front camera has a whopping 24 megapixels, but has to fight with edge blur and distorted colours. For this, the user has many camera functions including an artificial intelligence (AI) available.

Motifs are automatically detected and placed in one of 19 scenarios. In addition, the system detects which movements will be executed soon. This contributes to better image stabilisation with 4K video recordings.

P20: Bright, sharp display

The 5.8-inch Full HD display is almost frameless and comes with the notch that was famously removed from the iPhone X. This black hole at the top houses the front camera, speakers and sensors.

With the fingerprint reader on the front or via face recognition you can unlock the IPS display. It is in terms of brightness extremely good, but still remains behind top models like the P30 Pro.

Compared to the P20 Pro, the screen is 100 candela per square metre brighter, which makes it easier to read in the sun. The optics are characterised by a stainless steel frame and a polished glass back. To avoid fingerprints and slipping out of the hand, you can use the enclosed protective cover - if you don't then be warned, this casing attracts fingerprints!

What are the alternatives to the P20?

The P20 technically positions itself between the slimmed-down version P20 Lite and the more expensive P20 Pro.

Compared to the Lite version, it has a larger internal memory of 128 GB, instead of 64 GB , and greater battery capacity - which by the way holds 3400 mAh, making it 400 mAh more than the Lite model and with the inclusive fast charging technology this recharges it completely within 90 minutes. However, wireless charging has curiously been omitted.

The Pro version has a larger screen (6.1 inches), 6GB of RAM instead of 4GB and a 4000mAh battery.

Huawei P20 Price in UK

The Huawei P20 has an RRP of £349 placing it close to the upper price range. It is however much cheaper than the Pro premium model and has a first-class camera, simple operating concept, good display

Our tester found several negatives: it comes with no memory expansion and there is no headphone socket here, sadly. Our verdict would be to opt for the P30 which improves on this phone in significant ways.

Alternative to consider: iPhone X
