About Huawei P20 Pro - Review, Specs + more

The Huawei P20 Pro launched with much fanfare from the tech press with its 3 smartphone cameras. The trio improves your pictures in bad light and shows its strong side when zooming, but is it just a novelty in the smartphone world to have this many cameras, and what else besides this makes the P20 Pro worth having over the regular P20 model? Let's find out...

 3 lenses are better than 2

So, back to that camera set-up. Professional photographers will especially like the triple camera system with 8, 20 and 40 megapixels on the back. Here, compared to lower cost devices, the photo quality is noticeable, particularly in bad light - thanks to the 40 megapixels and the black and white sensor with 20 megapixels.

And best yet, the 8-megapixel telephoto lens comes with 3x optical zoom. iPhone X and Galaxy S9+ "only" have a double zoom - and if you've read oneCOMPARE's review of those products you'll know that our reviewer thought the zoom functions were a real letdown in otherwise great handsets. The camera setup on the P20 Pro represents the pinnacle of digital photography, all nicely wrapped into a smartphone.

With the 40 megapixel lens, photo details become more pronounced, but saving them does take longer as this review found. To reach their full potential, the default 10 megapixels must be changed in the settings up to the maximum - so it isn't clear if many people will actually use the full 40 megapixels.

Thanks to KI-supported hardware, the system automatically recognises subjects and illuminates them accordingly.

High contrast, colourful screen

With an RRP of £899, this smartphone is not exactly a bargain, but comes with numerous technical refinements. So you can connect it to a TV or projector to watch presentations or videos in large format. In addition, the front camera features face recognition to unlock the display using only your face.

Alternatively, you can use the fingerprint sensor with gesture control, to do the same. And the display measures 6.1 inches and offers full HD + resolution so it's easy to do.

Unlike the lesser LCD display of the Huawei P20, here it is built with OLED technology — thus truly capturing bright colours and a much stronger contrast, but makes the screen appear darker.

Powerful battery, no upgradeable memory

Another difference to the "normal" P20, that is rather noticeable, is the glass-aluminum housing. Here it is dustproof and waterproof to IP67 standards, and somewhere deep inside there sits a rather large battery. It has 4000 mAh instead of 3400 mAh, is built-in and can be charged by fast charging technology. In our private tests, we managed a whopping 16 hours and 20 minutes of intensive use.

The P20 Pro proved to be able to hold its breath longer than the batteries found in iPhone X (9 hours) and the Galaxy S9+ (13 hours). But, compared to both of those, you cannot charge it wirelessly.

The RAM is sufficient with 6 GB of RAM, an increase on the non-Pro (4 GB). The internal memory at 128 GB is also more than adequate for all but the most intensive users, which is just as well as it cannot be upgraded.

On top of that the P20 lacks k the jack socket for headphones. Instead P20 connects you via the included adapter.

oneCOMPARE verdict - the P20 Pro

Huawei's P20 Pro has a very good camera, a very durable battery and a vivid screen. Especially with low light and when zooming the shots shine and stand far aprt from other models. You have to do without the ability to upgrade your interal hard-drive and stick with what Huawei has given you, and forget about listening to music via a 3. mm jack. All in all it's a great package.

If you can do without the third camera lens and can get by with less memory, the P20 Lite offers a cheaper alternative.

What's the price of a P20 Pro?

Currently it retails at about £350 in the UK. Or you can buy it on a monthly contract from £17/month - this is through Sky, but other providers also have a lot of deals on the P20 Pro to compare.
