Anonymous, 18 Feb 2019That's BS. You don't need freaking 4K or even 2K on a 5.5 inch device. I've "downgraded" from ... moreWhat phone were you using before iPhone XR? If it's something like OnePlus 5 then obviously you wouldn't notice the difference since the effective resolution is very similar on both due to the pentile subpixel arrangement on typical OLED panels. And maybe you don't notice the jaggedness of the display, but I do.
Yes I agree. A 2k or 4k screen would be nice. But ifs power hungry. And to be honest the P20 pro screen is crisp enough. But I would like to see a higher res screen on P30
Who are we?, 18 Feb 2019Huawei phones are banned from sale by phone companies in the US - AT&T wanted to sell the ... moreCarriers in the USA don't officially carry Huawei phones due to pressure from the govt. But it's still possible to buy unlocked Huawei phones from Amazon, Newegg and Ebay. I'm currently using Mate 20 Lite on the tmobile network and it works well. Updates are a bit difficult to get (no carrier support) but overall it's great performance for the price (only ~$275).

reddwarf2300282, 18 Feb 2019Resolution is poor. It is deal breaker for me.That's BS. You don't need freaking 4K or even 2K on a 5.5 inch device. I've "downgraded" from 1080p phone to "Liquid Retina" on iPhone XR and frankly, I can't really tell a difference. I also used 720p mode on my Huawei that was 1080p and you could again hardly tell a difference. On 10 inch tablets, sure. But on phones, this chasing for ridiculously spec'd screens is just absurd and unnecessary.
FHD on company's 2019 flagship phone? For me that's hard to pass unless the phone comes with top-in-the-industry battery life, camera and speaker quality. With that said I wouldn't mind having a FHD display on my phone if it DOESN'T uses diamond pentile pixel arrangement. The OLED display on my Mate 10 Pro is great, it has a really good color accuracy, brightness and contrast - But honestly I wish it had QHD resolution instead as it doesn't look that crisp compared to other flagships' displays.
I sincerely hope that this leak is only about P30 Lite and the regular P30, not the pro. Also Huawei shouldn't rely on LG as their display supplier ever again, no more green display issue thank you.
Vasra, 17 Feb 2019The restrictions apply only to Network components, not phones.Huawei phones are banned from sale by phone companies in the US - AT&T wanted to sell the P20 Pro at CES in 2018, but was prevented by the US government.
You can import to the phone to the US but try going into a store and buying one, very hard to find it at retail!

I had all the Galaxy S series due to high screen resolution. Got myself a p20 pro this year. I am in a position where i say i prefer to pay more for more camera options rather than having a 2k or a 4k screen. + have a battery that truly last a day of usage and the p20 pro give me all that. Not a single samsung phone i owned gave me that. Only a gorgeous screen with vivid colors that got burn in issues after some months of usage.

If pro device has low screen resolution then it is a deal breaker whether they give big gifts along with.
While most Mate series debut a new Kirin CPU these days the P9 and P9 Plus debuted a newer Kirin than the Mate 8. EVEN if it wasn't a major upgrade...it still was an upgrade.

Chrsjns, 17 Feb 2019Kirin 980 bridged the gap, it is not much slower than SD855, but it still hard to swallow the ... moreKirin 980 and SD855 have same CPU. 4 cores of Cortex A76 (branded Kryo 485 in SD) and 4 cores of Cortex A55 (branded Kryo 385 in SD). Kirin 980 A76 only working on much lower clocks giving far longer battery time.
Memory controllers have same capabilities.
Real difference comes in GPU. Adreno 640 in SD855 is much performer than Mali-G76MP10. And it's capable of stable 2160p60 record. While Mali-G76MP10 is incapable even of stable 2160p30. Hopefully this would be addressed in Kirin 985.
