Triple cameras? Cool
Twilight color? Cool
Notch? Not cool (Dealbreaker)
Lack of 3.5 mm jack? Not cool (double dealbreaker).
And that 40 MP camera is just gimmick in my opinion. I bet Pixel 2 XL camera is of same quality, if not better. Megapixels are not always determinant whether a camera is good or not.

Most of them will believe the score and this will gradually seed deeply into their subconscious mind. When people talking about Huawei, their will know Huawei phones have great camera...
is it just me, or that AI is too smart and even put a make-up on the faces on every pics?
could it be turned off somehow? because otherwise it has a really good camera.
Whackcar, 27 Mar 2018I'm just happy that we're finally going back to the higher MP era. I hate these 12MP cheap cam... moremany started to use 12MP just because of iphone 6s.
S6 had 16MP, G4 16MP, HTC had 20MP, Motorola 21MP

Needed megapixels are related to human visual accuity, a billboard maybe be printed from a 2.5 MP source but you see it from many meters of distance,on the other hand if you need to read a serial number in a small sticker in a corner of a photo, or sell a photo of a group shot to all the people in the photo,,,
Viyus, 27 Mar 2018Stop this nonsense megapixel count always mattered the quantity works hand in hand with pixel ... moreYour comment is showing 0 knowledge in photography, I can put my DSLRs "humble" 24MP shooting RAW against this P20s 40MP and I bet you'd choose the DSLR blindly any day, phone sensors are tiny! (f1.4 is the aperture, not sensor size BTW!) and can't produce the quality of a decent sensor like DSLRs with less MP than the 40MP for an example, so MP doesn't count! billboards for an example are printed in the equivalent of 2.5 MP (look it up) and people are still using that as an excuse for a lot of MP.
The tiny sensor behind the lenses can't physically capture the depth of the surrounding like a normal size sensor, hence MP is not important, only the sensor and the lens.
P20 Pro do not downsize 40MP to 10MP. Camera takes 10MP photo as default. They have to do this test again with changed camera settings to take 40MP photos.

Have seen my comment anywhere denying ... moreMy logic is that if Sony for example sells you say a 4.5mm high camera module, and you call leica and they can design a 3mm high lens, then you add a camera bump of 2 mm to have more room, put the camera module almost touching the back, and presto?- It's a collaborative effort, but the real work is making the camera module and the lens so thin, then you adapt the phone to that.

Have seen my comment anywhere denying the fact that Huawei doesnt buy different components from other manufacturers?? I don't member even starting such kind of topic!
I'm just happy that we're finally going back to the higher MP era. I hate these 12MP cheap cameras they've been putting on flagships as of late. Hopefully we'll be seeing everyone jumping on the 40MP bandwagon soon.

Assembling that 4000mAh battery and 40mp+20mp+8mp +24mp sensors within 7.8mm is not a joke. Everyone is outsourcing a few components and assemble them with their name. I am not saying that they have built that camera,they needn't. That they have brought us the tech is what you should be happy about. You can hate them for excessive bragging, uninspiring software, irregular updates, but please give credit where it is due. Still not convinced, just wait a few days before you hear every honest reviewers and youtubers sharing their views. This technology is 2-3 generations ahead by Huawei's standards.
Egash Josh, 27 Mar 2018Exactly but still some young babies here won't understand that! One just needs to ask him/hers... moreAnd if you are not a baby, you know that Huawei buys the camera module from another company, be it Sony/Toshiba, Samsung or Omnivision, and pays the same company, or another (Leica) for the lenses in or over such module.

One just needs to ask him/herself how Huawei were able squeeze that wooping 40mp camera in that 7.8mm thin body!!?? And only that will make you appreciate the engineering behind that! But if you always reason with your fanboism you never appreciate any tech.
