had this phone for over a month now. at first i was considering the pro however cant bare the notch coming from an iphone x and xr user. anyway, phone is great so far so good. dont take alot of pics so camera is not a problem. mediocre speaker, very good battery life though. overall, experience using this as my daily is awesome. can recommend this phone to anyone who is not looking for a clean android experience.

Ahmed Ragab Hamed, 16 Jan 2019even in camera images results ??
Yup it is.
Front camera - Both device quality are average. Mate 20 got advantage because has HDR features (less blown background).
Rear camera - Daylight pretty much the same quality. But in low lights, Mate 20 a lot better even not using Night Mod. When using Night Mod, S9 got no answer. U cant beat physic, Mate 20 camera sensor 1/2.3Â”, S9 1/2.55Â”.
When talking about versatility, Mate 20 hands down. Super macro, Ultra wide angle, 2x optical zoom with adjustable aperture affects, dedicated Night Mod.
960fps video are better on S9+ though.
Shui8, 15 Jan 2019Mate 20 better in all aspect, except IP rating & sd card storage.even in camera images results ??
Ahmed Ragab Hamed, 13 Jan 2019Which one is better s9 + 64-6 GB or mate 20 128-6 Gb? Mate 20 better in all aspect, except IP rating & sd card storage.
HYDROID, 11 Jan 2019Using mate 20 for a week now upgrading from mate 9:
Great design and color (midnight blue), s... moreAgree with the awesome design, average speaker, great camera, great battery life, average screen (note 8 use OLED anyway) but the didnt like list are based on preference:-
- The dewdrop notch are nicer than wider notch. U can get great bezelles screen. U can hide it in settings anyway, if u dont like it
- Doesnt it has virtual hd call? Called VoLTE
- Huawei messaging can be installed, search it on XDA Forum
To be neutral and unbiased.One of the most complete high ends smartphone of 2018 with reference to its excellent review,specifications and gsmArena disclaimer.Only FM radio RDS recording hasn't been mentioned that maybe fixed through OTA ! Price is ultra reach that in 2019 maybe decreased hopefully.Anyway it belongs to the high end VIP but not absolute majority of people unlike view 20 with $ extraordinary $ 125 for all walks of life....Thanks for gsmArena complete review....Good luck.
Using mate 20 for a week now upgrading from mate 9:
Great design and color (midnight blue), stunning camera performance, nice screen resolution but not as good as my galaxy note 8, long life battery comparing to mate 9 even both are 4000mAh, 128 GB enough memory no need for sd cards.
But the things i didn't like:
-The screen notch
-Stereo speakers are not good as mate 9 in quality and loudness
-no virtual hd call option
-no huawei messaging app which is much better than google's one
Gelo, 09 Jan 2019Anyone experiencing screen bleeding at the bottom display. Mate 20 user. Yup, mine has it too, at the bottom. But its very minimal & appear sometimes on certain color background (not as bad as Poco F1 bleed earlier).
Actually its a normal thing on big LCD display causing by the backlit technology. Its not bother me that much.

Anonymous, 08 Jan 2019Planning to buy a new phone. So, between mate 20 and p20 pro, which one is the best?Mate 20. Same dilemma as me before, but Mate 20 is the better buy.
Mate 20 vs Nova 4, which one is better, for overall?
- Play game sometime
- Love to take photos
- Prefer the one with save more battery power in usage (it looks the same to me but not sure)
- Prefer more durable (hardware & software)
- Flexible budget (not really care about budget, but If can pay less then less)
** Seek opinions for these 2 phones only. Sorry and Thanks.
