The Huawei P20 Pro is easily the best camera phone available today and it's also a fine handset in its own right.

  • Amazing camera

The bad

  • No wireless charging
  • No headphone jack
  • No storage expansion
  • EMUI is still a garish mess

Huawei P20 Pro at a glance
When did the Huawei P20 Pro come out? Available in Australia from 18 May 2018.
What’s new about the Huawei P20 Pro? Triple cameras, notch display, water resistance, Kirin 970 processor.
How much does the Huawei P20 Pro cost? $1099 outright.

The Huawei P20 Pro's best selling point is its exceptional camera, making it the phone to buy for keen mobile photographers.

Huawei's P-series phones have always been its "style" play, where the Mate phones occupy the more serious space. As the flagship phone for Huawei for 2018, at least until the Mate 10 Pro's successor arrives, the Huawei P20 Pro has some serious competition in front of it.


Design

  • Twilight design really stands out.
  • Lacks microSD card slot and headphone jack.

Camera

  • Triple camera gives immense photographic possibilities.
  • Great low-light performance.

Performance

  • NPU doesn't make an apparent difference to app performance.
  • EMUI's styling won't appeal to all.

Battery life

  • 4,000 mAh battery depletes faster than you might think.
  • Wireless charging is also MIA.

Verdict

  • That amazing camera is the reason you'd buy the P20 Pro.
  • Good price for a premium handset, but still plenty of room for improvement.
