Huawei slices out a few features from the Mate 20 Pro to make the slightly cheaper Huawei Mate 20, but it's overall an exceptional handset for those on a tighter budget.

The Huawei Mate 20 series will be Huawei's second flagship series for the year and brings plenty of power – both for processing and battery life – into its range of large-screen smartphones.

The non-"Pro" version of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro drops the camera quality, screen display and charging features of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. It's not quite the flagship that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is, but at its price point, it's a superb phone anyway.

Design

  • Teardrop notch
  • Aussies only get the black model
  • Has a headphone jack
  • LCD rather than OLED

Camera

  • Triple camera has been dialled down, but is still very good
  • Good night-shooting capabilities for its price range
  • Camera AI mostly works
  • Portrait lighting remains clunky and daft
  • No monochrome lens

Performance

  • Kirin 980 provides excellent performance
  • Still a shadow over Huawei's benchmark honesty.
  • EMUI is still divisive
  • NM storage card format

Battery life

  • Good battery life, although precisely how good is hard to pin down
  • Fast wired charging
  • Lacks wireless charging

Verdict

  • A very good phone for the asking price
  • A return to more regular pricing form for Huawei
