Our review of the Huawei P20 pro mobile phone.

Review: Huawei P20 Pro

When Huawei P20 Pro was released, it was Huawei’s most powerful phone at the time. It was known for its fantastic front and rear cameras and its high-speed processors. Huawei has released more phones that do follow in the Huawei P20 Pro footsteps like the P30 Pro and the P40 Pro. However, the Huawei P20 Pro is still worth considering to purchase.

This phone does rival the likes of the iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, but these two devices are more expensive even when these phones are second hand. So does this mean you should reconsider buying the iPhone X second hand and the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus second hand.

Key Features

Now if the Huawei P20 Pro has caught your eye, it is because of the cameras that it features. There are three rear cameras at the back of the phone; one is a 40MP primary sensor, one is a 20 MP black and white camera, and the final one is an 8MP 3xzoom camera for macro photography.

The great feature that these cameras have is that they are high in low light. It has a feature where you can capture more dynamic pictures in these low light situations.

Design

This phone has been designed in a way that it catches your eye no matter what. It has two rounded Gorilla Glass sheets that are covering an aluminium body. The metal inside the phone has been polished rather than an anodized. This has made the metal look more like steel. This is also how the phone can get this first colour gradient.

The primary eye-catching colour is the purple that merges into the green colour. Don’t worry if this doesn’t seem to get your attention, there are other colours that you can choose from, but they are quite reflective.

Display

On this Huawei phone, you receive a 1080 x 2244 AMOLED display. Just by looking at the numbers, it does sound like this phone is a strange shape, but this display is a Full HC stretched screen. It is broader and longer than most phones on the market, but the only thing about this phone’s show is the pixel density.

You will find that the pixel density is 408ppi which is lower than the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. However, you are not able to notice this unless you are using a VR Headset.

What do we think?

For an Andriod phone, this phone is a cheaper alternative to a Samsung. It doesn’t stand out from the crowd when you compare it to its competitors, but you can see why people would purchase this phone. Overall it is a high-end phone, and now you can buy this phone second hand it is much easier to get your hands on.

If you want everything that the Samsung S9 Plus has to offer but don’t want to pay for the extensive price that it is being sold for, then this is the perfect phone for you.
