The Huawei P20 Pro was easily the best camera phone available in 2018 and it's also a fine handset in its own right.
- Amazing camera
- Good app performance
- Water resistance
- Did we mention the camera?
- No wireless charging
- No headphone jack
- No storage expansion
- EMUI is still a garish mess
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.
- Twilight design really stands out.
- Lacks microSD card slot and headphone jack.
- Triple camera gives immense photographic possibilities.
- Great low-light performance.
- NPU doesn't make an apparent difference to app performance.
- EMUI's styling won't appeal to all.
- 4,000 mAh battery depletes faster than you might think.
- Wireless charging is also MIA.
- 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.
