Huawei Mate 20 Pro review | Trusted Reviews

 

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review, features, price and release date: The Mate 20 Pro packs a ludicrous amount of stuff inside its svelte body.

Great display ; Very fast charging ; Plenty of clever tricks such as in-display fingerprint and reverse wireless charging ; Battery life is fantastic

Huawei’s software remains a weakness

Huawei’s phones just keep on getting better. The Mate 20 Pro is full of great features and offers up an excellent alternative to any other flagship phone on the market right now.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: Surprisingly, almost perfect

 

There's no such thing as the perfect smartphone, but the Mate 20 Pro is arguably as close as you can get right now. The Huawei device is unmatched in camera versatility, and on top of that it has every premium feature imaginable, like an in-screen...

Incredible cameras ; Plenty of premium features like an in-screen fingerprint reader ; Large high-resolution display ; Long battery life ; That Twilight finish

Easily scuffed screen ; Only takes proprietary storage cards ; EMUI looks dated ; No US availability

And Chevrolet's electric drag racer.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: a rapid, stunning, and feature-packed flagship that you'll simply fall in love with

 

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is one of, if not the, best smartphones ever made, delivering an experience that leaves nothing to be desired. Read T3's official Huawei Mate 20 Pro review now…

Gorgeous, premium design ; Bright and vivid OLED, HDR display ; Kirin 980 CPU is insanely fast ; Leica-made camera system is superb ; Futuristic in-display fingerprint reader ; Capacious 4,200 mAh battery ; Android 9.0 Pie out of the box

None of note

Want a powerhouse phone that'll turn heads? Try this

 

Want to carry the best tech you can fit in your pocket? Get this phone.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro goes above and beyond with exciting new features and an eye-catching design.

You can't use microSD cards to expand the storage. The main loudspeaker hidden in the charging port is muffled when you plug the phone in.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro's impressive list of features puts it unquestionably among the top phones of the year. Shame you can't buy it in the US.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro

 

Packed full of innovative features that challenge more conventional Android phones, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is one of the best phablets the US will never see.

Fast performance. Powerful camera. Back-to-back charging. Sleek design. Big battery.

No headphone jack. Huawei bloatware.

Every new Android phone has its gimmicks, but few employ them as well as Mate 20 Pro does. It's commendable to see Huawei push the envelope of hardware features without breaking £1000. The fact that its price tag undercuts the Galaxy Note 9, while...

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: the best phone America can’t get

 

Huge battery, slick design, and a superb processor, constrained by bad software and international relations

Battery lasts and lasts ; Blistering performance ; Gorgeous display ; 3D face unlock is fast and reliable ; Textured rear glass improves grip, resists scratches and fingerprints

Camera lacks the dynamic range of the Google Pixel ; Master AI image processing isn’t yet consistent enough to be trusted ; Some software bugs and annoyances

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: The Pro you'll want to know

 

Gorgeous design outshines even the Galaxy S9+ ; In-screen fingerprint scanner is the best of its kind ; Triple rear camera arrangement offers the best capabilities on the market ; Huge battery capacity that lasts for an age ; Fast-charging (40W) and Qi...

Square camera arrangement isn't pretty ; EMUI software hiccups - audible 'click' in silent mode and notifications issues for some apps ; No 3.5mm jack ; Some AI camera features are overzealous ; No Qi wireless charger in the box

By combining the highest quality design, arguably the best cameras in any smartphone, and future-facing features such as an in-screen fingerprint scanner, the Mate 20 Pro asserts that it's among the top flagship phones of 2018. Divisive software with...

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review

 

Meet our new best Mate

Surprising compact design ; Incredible camera versatility ; Jam packed with tech

No headphone jack ; GPU not as impressive as CPU ; Speaker could be louder

A phone with more tech per square inch than any other. A smartphone marvel

Excellent industrial design ; Exceptional battery capabilities ; Extremely Fast battery charging ; Overall Most Powerful Camera Features

Not officially available in the U.S ; No 3.5mm audio port ; Android EMUI layer is different

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: you’ll wish you could get one

 

2018 is perhaps one of Huawei's most exciting years yet. Almost like the script for a Hollywood blockbuster, the year began with a tragedy that seemed like a death sentence for the protagonist. It left its hero in a period of limbo, its future...

Top notch cameras with impressive Night Mode ; Quirky two-way wireless charging has potential ; Beautiful design, manageable size and weight ; Impressive performance and battery life

USB-C “speaker” can get blocked by charger ; Not available in the US
