I have used this phone for awhile now.. it has a fantastic camera etc.. the battery drains a little to fast fro my liking with small to above average use it will require daily charging. The emui is a little bit annoying, updates are not as quick as first advertised but all round this is a great phone for someone who loves good photos with a high(ish) spec device in their pocket..
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2019Is it ok to replace my iPhone 7 to this Huawei p20 on 2020? I going to change my iPhone 7 star... moreYes. I'm an owner of both, it's ok , if you like Android..bigger screen and battery
This is the email i wrote to huawei support:
Why are you locking bootloader and not let user to choose? Is your mind ok? Or some ilness?
Would you buy a computer that can run only MS-DOS? It Is the same with your phones.... Please, close the mobile division, you do a big favor to whole world.... The P20 model is really funny, it is almost apple in other coat xD You can not thinks something new yourselves? and not only to copy from the others? I thought i bought an Android Huawei phone, but it's more similar to Iphone
Is it ok to replace my iPhone 7 to this Huawei p20 on 2020? I going to change my iPhone 7 starting 1Q 2020.
After used many different brands I buy a Huawei p20 and the watch GT. Now after two weeks I am so surprised about the quality from these amazing phone that instal automatisch Android pie by the first power on. The phone is very quick and she make me really happy with the gorgeous camera's. Never I have see better camera's in a phone than by the p20. After many problems with sd cards in the past I decide with buying the p20 that I want in the future only phones with enough intern memory because everything works smoother.
I sent for repairs, they replaced the fingerprint scanner. So for a high end phone parts are falling apart in 6 month. Shame on you Huawei. As i noticed it came back with Emui 9 and Android 9. And before i was not able to update. So another glitch.
Otherwise it is working fine. Fast easy to use and set it up. But......???
So, I managed to push EMUI 9 update to my L29 in Croatia.
Try it, maybe it will work for you.
Go to HiCare app and in settings change your region to UK. Then, in HiCare app click on Update. It will show update but it will also show some error.
After that change region to USA. Again, search for update within HiCare app. It will show update and it will be downloadable.
After that, change region again. This time to your default region. For me it's Croatia. Update is here and I'm downloading it now.

Something else is a reason to abandon of this jack, and I would like to hear credible explanation from manufactures. Apple abandon this jack because they can't credit any patent on it, for them everything is related to patents.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2018Does anyone find swiftkey and gboard that are already installed on p20 too small? I make tons ... moreI have the same problem. P20 keyboard is crap. Both swiftkey and gboard are way too small and I make so many mistakes that typing on this piece of crap is totally useless. If I knew a good android phone with 20mp selfie camera and a keyboard you can type comfortably on I would return this huawei p20 asap and buy a decent keyboard phone.

"After your phone is updated, the system is optimised within a period of time (within 24 hours) based on your usage habits. During the optimisation, power consumption increases. After the optimisation is complete, power consumption is restored to normal"
DexterHR, 23 Jan 2019Still no Pie for P20 dual sim in Croatia...No update in Canada too, no Emui 9, no Android pie , but left with a phone with fingerprint sensor that is not working. All is ok except that. Hiawei support responded but no luck on troubleshooting . Ufff
My p20 fingerprint sensor is not working. Another crap Chinese phone
Got OTA update to Pie EMUI on on 23.01.2019. Antutu score is much less and battery fell like lest durable. Bought in France and used in Macedonia. Sorry but for me the update is nothing special. Fells like other brand, not Huawei. I liked emui 8.1 more.
