Still, camera is among best of phablets. But, meh, 155 mm tall... Gigantic shovel for overgrown 2-meter giants.
Cant believe some ppl here think P20p uses all 3 cams same time.
Impossible for 2 cameras with different focal length work together.
These two samples cant be merged.
You can merge rgb and monochrome, not wide + telephoto

The P20 Pro takes many frames at long shutter speeds - the whole photo taking process lasts a few seconds - hence it can in some cases be nearly impossible to remove some of the ghosting.
Isn't the audio adapter actually a Digital to Analog converter and headphone amp in a compact size?
It should therefor be possible to get a better adaptor from some other maker. Any USB-C to 3.5mm should work... Or a proper headphone amp that is class compliant (probably with some other type of USB plug).
The audio output tests, should perhaps be moved from the review, to a separate category, so that users can find the best adaptors.
Built in audio outputs should still be included.

Yes huawei use same methode as the pixel hdr+ and yes its slower because its use 3 sensor and combine them as well at the same time so its could even be 3 times slower and its would still be good.
LG Superfan, 12 Apr 2018I think you forgot to open your eyes check out the night mode pictures its detailed a little l... morefound one shot with similar fov as v30(16mp) and pattern visible in v30 was deformed in p20pro(40mp), in daylight. If its about low light, also found one of xz2 with same fov, same pattern was clear and good in in it, while in p20pro was deformed, with night mode not even visible. Less noise but less detail. You can do the same setting lover resolution in other phone. Also xperia uses one sensor without ois, p20pro uses at least 2 and with brighter aperture and ois. In test shots it clearly loses, seems in real shots too. Monochrome camera alone perform the best, not that I would go back to monochome when taking shots.

They are good at posting high numbers in artificial benchmarks. I think many of you will agree with me on that, and this is where Huawei flagships beats the competition their battery enduarance and perfomance will always get better with long time usage.

The video quality is a dealbreaker for me. The camera is overhyped, and it is safe to assume that 50% of the entire smartphone audience in the world does not need good low light capabilities at the expense of jerky and poor video quality. Combine that with a previous gen chipset and no slo-mo ability , and we begin to see that the P20 Pro is not such a mighty innovation after all.
Dxomark put the p20 pro on top of any high end smartphones with an overall score of 109. S9 Plus scores 99 points.
Long story short, this is a great phone... but the Mate 20 Pro is gonna be even better. Hehehe

I dont know people, except zoom shot quality and good portrait mode, this tripple camera setup is nothing that impressive standing out in stills, and certainly not in video.
Yea, you get superbright lowlight 10mpx shots with that looong exposure, but its a big smudge with no detail or sharpness, and its not looking like lowlight anymore, some nightshots there look actually like a dawn or evening shot, and it should look like its actually night...or not?
Without AI, full res nightshots look just like the rest.
But it you want flag video quality too...its just not that good.
Overall Good, but A bit overhyped camera setup in my opinion.
And then there is the last year SoC inside for the top price too.
Just my 5.3 cents...

Proof them that the AI learn system really works and battery life can be improve more than the battery lab test did. Lol.

2) From 4000 mAh u cant expect more since its kirin 970 inside... on 980 it will be a different story
3) On speaker tests according to this review audio quality is in top 5 (not in loudness but in quality yes)
4) i can't say for sure but i think that they will improve video over updates... it looks like Huawei was focused on photography first. also camera is great. if u turn off AI u will get most natural colors.

Huawei's camera phone using OIS since Mate 9....what it means by AI stabilization is they using the 3 sensors to accomodate 5x zoom steadily, no OIS phone can do it yet, Night mode 4 seconds handheld using OIS+rgb sensor+monochrome sensor also steadily, still no OIS phone can ever do that yet also. Thats why they call it as AI stabilizer, an OIS enabled phone combines with intelligent overlay by various sensors.
