I use a combination of MP3, FLAC and hi Res FLAC.
I have never used Bluetooth headphones as I am awaiting delivery of my first set so hopefully very soon.
The phone is a flagship and general most high end phones have 5.0, at £799 I hope to keep the P20 pro two to three years, the question for me is will it become an issue and have they included hardware for future firmware update.
Also unfortunately have to limit FLAC files especially hi-res due to not having a micro SD slot. Can't moan as I knew this when I ordered.
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2018People who say things like you are just trying to validate their own purchase that they wasted... moreThere is what the ecosystem of market revolves. Someone sells and someone has to buy it is either expensive or cheap it does not matter. So there is no problem to people who tend to buy a very expensive thing like new launched phone and etc because the market just need them to keep them rolling. Instead of giving thoughtful thoughts, you mislead because of your personal orientation. We need open mind no political inclination a pure opinion because unarguably P10 plus is currently at the tip of the phone industry.

Where did you get you music my friend? What container does you music have, Mp3 of Flac?
Lolzzzz I can't stop myself luaghed over people who are saying that they need removable batteries
My dear fellows now SOCs work on 10nm structure and soon there will be 7nm based SOCs which are way friendly with power consumption
If your mobile Screen on time is below 4 hours then we can understand but if it's above 6 and in this particular case it's touching 7 hours or near to it then you don't need any spare battery at all
Secondly I will always go with a better battery performance rather than fooling myself with removable batteries that last just for 3 hours or a bit above that and then again charging is so ridiculously fats on this thing that we don't need removable batteries at all with Huawei super charge and winning combination of 4000 mah battery
Now I would like to tell some thing to this site reviewer as well they always argue about the Camera app in mobiles other than apple and Google and they say iPhone app and Pixel app is bla bla bla simple and at the same time they wish that iOS 1# should bring manual mode to their app and about Pixel they have same kind of feeling
Now thing is when you had packed so much hardware in the Camera you need supporting software for it as well, and the options can't be displayed on the screen for every feature other wise there would be nothing in view finder apart from icon and their functions that's why it's a bit complicated and I will take optimistic approach and will say it's feature rich app with plenty of features but if you don't want it then auto mode is always there, that's it
Now getting back to our multi talented reviewers commenting here so for you guys now smartphone market is jam packed we get almost 2 to 3 flagship cycles from almost 10 OEMs so better buy any of the flagship and it will serve you more than satisfactory way but
And a huge but as far as current breed of mobiles are concerned this thing is a pinnacle yet to be answered.
Peace from UAE
What a shame Huawei did not include either a micro SD card support or headphone jack. Noted on lots of reviews. It really would have been there on top of the pile for the money if they had included them.
Just typing this on the P20 pro and it really is great. However what is not mentioned alot is the lack of Bluetooth 5. Is this going to be an issue over time and is this phone going to get updated in the future? Thinking HTC 11, that did received the Bluetooth update as the hardware was there!
Home button in the bottom put me off buying it, as I think it looks outdated with it and it's useless except fingerprint scanner which could be in the back. Rest of the phone is super cool.
Had the phone only a few days now, but so far so good.
back of case feels grippy in hand and unlikely to slip/fall.
However, the flip side of this is its always covered in fingerprints and needing cleaned.
Box comes with USBC cable/plug also USBC/3.5mm adapted the best surprise was the usbc headphones in the box, super.
UK buyers also get to claim back free wireless headphones , so will see if they arrive once claimed.
Overall a good start from Huawei after the disaster that was a Moto-Z only lasted 11 months before dying, with awful support from Motorola, still trying to get my refund paid, 13 weeks after sending them my phone.
King Jay Kay , 14 Apr 2018Okay okay I got it I don't understand what does people want if you want everything then go... moreThose individual that are complaining are the most ignorant techie I've ever heard and if not, they simply doesn't know anything so they don't deserve our answers a waste of time.
LubenZz7, 14 Apr 2018Yes we need a removable battery cause for some people it's still 2005! goooooooood
Yes we need a removable battery cause for some people it's still 2005!
The earphones of the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 pro are the free earphones of the Huawei P20 Lite?

Learn how to open up the phone and change it. I have changed it on several phones now, my current phone is 3 years old, battery performance is still the same. Maybe it does not overcharge and hence such long lasting.
BMW760, 13 Apr 2018Nice phone but a massive flaw. NON REMOVABLE BATTERY kills it for me aha! Also, price a ripof... moreHuawei's batteries are good quality, I have the G7plus since january 2016 and never had problem with the battery life! My next phone is the P20pro for sure, it is the best phone on the market
Okay okay I got it
I don't understand what does people want if you want everything then go with Samsung because S9 plus is only device that ticks every every box like literally every box
But i can see such silly comments that I can't stop my self to answer them once and for all
Thing is this phone is just perfect people are saying no expansion and headphone jack dedicated one , since how many time you had used your phone while charging it and listening to music and if you are so much I to music that can't stop your self for just 15 mins then you must be an audiophile and I don't think so you don't have Bluetooth head gears
Secondly just name a single OEM that provides so generous headphones that you don't need proper high end head gears, like seriously I don't understand what's wrong with you all who are complaining it's 2018 now things are going towards minimalist edge, just see the screen to body ratios and other stuff
About notch so apple used it from essential phone and provided us with face id which they claim is more secure than touch id which I don't want to argue with cause they better know their tech but purpose of face id is to unlock phone and authorise access for payments etc and in this phone you have way fast face unlocking and for security measures you already have tried and tested always active touch id, and no one complained it before about apples touch Id even.though it was also a bit stretch to use.
As far as wireless charging is concerned so you get 17% charge with 30 mins charge on iPhone and 20 25% with Samsung and this thing charges to 58% within half hour which is good and bad at the same time but practically it's better option because the massive battery will serve you better and you won't need to charge it within the day and if you want to charge it then means either you don't leave your mobile for a second away using it or you.missed to charge it at first
Now getting to cameras like again seriously people don't know any thing about cameras and start complaining again in day light nowadays every single flagship will do the job of any OEM it's the night photography where mobiles cameras struggle and they solved it for you yes front facing camera is on softer side and no AIS on 4k is a kind of bummer but still who records stuff normally in 4k it's a gimmick that's all even S9+ limits you to 10 mins max and it needs a hell of space in storage and it's really hard to share as well and 1080p is enough and really it's enough with 60 FPS, when did you saw any movie online in 4k like it doesn't need to suck itself every time
What's else i am missing
The main focus of the phone is Display which is good Camera which is excellent Battery which is again excellent charging time is among top two i.e Huawei super charge and Oppo Dash charging is fastest in the market storage is decent 128gb is enough storage, platform is Android so you can mess with it in every way, performance wise I can assure you it will last longer than any android mobile except Pixel because I am using mate nine since October 2016 and it is still standing strong, then there is high DAC audio for audiophile who prefer wireless head gears plenty of pixels in cameras and the features and option the camera provide is mile ahead than the competition
Design is also good if not the best speakers are great build quality is simple awesome
Now it provides plenty of features in hard ware and software that other lacks
IR blaster, bigger battery, Fast charging, 3X optical zoom, 40mp main camera which can be used in daylight for pixel peeping, monochrome camera for artistic looks, PC mode, machine learning algorithms, Neural Processing CPU, Audio DAC for wireless, Dual SIM support,128gb bass storage, Stereo Hybrid speakers, fastest Face unlock, front finger print scanner, customisable notch, customisable navigation buttons, organic display and list goes on and I can argue every single comment here who are bashing this piece of ART
Kudos to Huawei for bringing this game changer and those who does not know any thing about technology please go away reviews are expert opinions by experts for above average users rest average consumer just see his pocket and buy among two brands that's Samsung and iPhone but this time P20 pro is here and showing a massive middle FINGER to other OEMS that how one can bring balance between software and hardware without breaking a sweat.
