No doubt Huawei did really create a very good camera phone it's expensive that's for sure but at the same time is good to see something different and fresh, a LOT of people in the comment section are hating really hard and as many others have said if you don't like just don't buy it, if you are certain that the phone is "bad" let the people who bought it to raise their voice, is that peoples opinion the one that really matters, not the one of the those just complaining about what's wrong with the phone isn't ?

I like the camera setup, but everything else is unimpressive. YES I know we're riding the wave of the Chinese upstarts here, but no SD card slot on a flagship?
That's the deal breaker right there.
AnonD-145316, 13 Apr 2018So many reviewers and users that have highly rated the camera high are blind??!!No, but they have rather kept their bar pretty low. 40Mpx sensor that makes 10Mpx photos that look ok as 1.5 Mpx unzoomed photos.
And for them Snapseed is considered as a "pro" tool.
vrvly, 13 Apr 2018Sorry, v30 got smaller fov could be wrong about that...xz2 is about the same though. daylight:... moreFor some reason gsmarena does not say anything about p20 pro low light resolution, I think its 40mp sample, p20 real strenght is 10mp samples. P20 Pro samples are abit better as you can see the grass before the building and near the tree which is black out on sony samples
Yup its been confirm, 10mp supersampling resolution with AI turned off produce a very good image, and that night mod shot is jaw-dropping - https://forum.xda-developers.com/huawei-p20-pro/help/camera-t3769720/page11
vrvly, 13 Apr 2018Sorry, v30 got smaller fov could be wrong about that...xz2 is about the same though. daylight:... moreI'm actually very surprised by how well XZ2 performs against P20 Pro despite its inferior optics.Sony definitely has upped their game with XZ2, apparently. However, there are things which have to be said here: First of all XZ2's shot seems to have much worse dynamic range, and you can tell that by looking at highlights and shadows on both phones, XZ2 is clearly overexposing light sources while grass is too dark compared to P20 Pro. And even though it is a fact that XZ2 is capturing more details (20MP vs 10MP image, so it'd better have better details), it also comes at a cost - a lot of noises mixed with heavy sharpening artifacts. Also green glowing letters on the hotel looks better on P20 Pro, despite obvious oversharpening - XZ2 is just not too great at hiding noises and artifacts without messing up with details.
As for daylight shot - I don't consider a comparing normal photos and AI-assisted oversaturated instagram-ready photos as a good idea. I'm not sure if it is going to happen, but I'll wait for GSMArena to publish couple of 10MP shot with Master AI turned off so that a fair comparison can be made. As far as I have seen, AI-assisted shots look far worse than the normal shots not only in terms of dynamic range, but also for details, let alone completely messed up colors and white balance.

Difference is more visible in lowlight, thats 20mp vs. 40mp(or 10mp). Also make sure you see b&w shot, which is better than color output out of both phones.
Not putting a notch on s9 is questionable not the other way around.
Do you enjoy having much of the upper side of the fron face of your phone being lost to a side by side bezel whilst you could comfortably put a "smart bezel" there (notificaition bar that is flash with the notch by virtue of being black as well)?
Never understood the popular opinion on this (that tech sites never fail to reiterate). It downright lacks imagination and is trite and self destructive (it may lead to the return of upper bezel which is frankly useless).
Camera quality looks absolutely horrible even in daylight. No details at all.
your review states fix focus on selfie but ur specs sheets that its an autofocus selfie one...sooooo????

You are the joker here! Do you have any idea how much power the p20 pro requires to complement all that camera tech???

Tell me one phone which is not Huawei P20 Pro that can shoot in all of:
2. Lag-free HDR
3. 3x optical zoom which remains usable even under low-light
4. Night Mode
5. Portrait Mode
6. RAW with 40MP in resolution
7. Super Slow-mo
in addition to the ability to take photos as good as or even better than those from Galaxy S9+ or Pixel 2 in many situations.
