Lu, 20 Jul 2018Yes, it seems that the "long-term" review is written by somebody who simulated the "long-term"... moreAgree to your points and also the use of glass without wireless charging is pointless. All for the looks without added functional benefits.
My sim card tray got stuck twice on the P20 pro. Huawei repair shop said I didn't place the sim in tray. Well as it turns out, I took the sim card out and there no sim card in side. The string inside is defective but Huawei refuses to admit it and wanted to change the motherboard .... thanks but no thanks! Be warned.
I have been using it for 2 months now. I'm just loving it. Great phone from HUAWEI.
Samsung and Apple fans are so jealous it's fun to watch....this triple camera setup is only thing that is new on any flagship phone this year.......kudos to Huawei.
One of most overrated phone till date.
Daylight photos aren't spectacular.
AI is pretty bad. It oversaturates the photos, which make them unnatural.
960 slo mo looks bad.
Videos camera is a horrible mess.
Great camera when using pro mode. Great battery life time and fast phone for editing pictures better than the crappy ai. But my 2 p20 pros was the worst phones I ever had, since Samsung galaxy s6. Ui lags, like we know from Samsung. Random crashes and reboots on my phones. My wife's p20 pro has none of the flaws mine had. The ai is ok, but overdoes the edit. Even when turning off the master ai, the ai still screws with the standard point and shoot. P10 plus was the best point and shoot phone ever. P20 pro is the best manual shooter.
It's great unless you use Android Auto in your car... then good luck, Huawei I would pay $1000 if you would just fix this issue with all your phones...

...? Photos from P20 Pro's using its Portrait Mode are all very natural with almost no noise reduction or sharpening applied. I think you're confused with those from selfie camera which can look soft when you're using the default shooting mode (which is also called Portrait Mode, oddly enough).
MA21, 21 Jul 2018Exactly. Others justify it as okay as long as you aren't pixel-peeping. Aside from the paintin... morePortrait Mode on P20 Pro is excellent though, with all the preserved details and textures, much better than crappy ones from iPhone. For slow-mo it has its upside (like it's usable in low-light unlike the slow-mo on XZ2/S9) though I agree that use of a DRAM-integrated sensor would've been nicer.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2018Personally, I thought the dxo shots, particularly bokeh, were awful.the skin tones looked like... moreExactly. Others justify it as okay as long as you aren't pixel-peeping. Aside from the painting-like photos, there's also the fake super-slowmo that is obviously just software processing compared to the hardware solution used by Sony and Samsung. There's a video that compares the Huawei super-slowmo to Sony and Samsung, and it's particularly awful to look at the blades looking disintegrated in the super-slowmo of the P20 pro.
The Huwaei is very active in mobile industry nowadays and launching amazing smartphones these days. No doubt, the company stand toughs in the competition with Xiaomi, Samsung and other brands that comes into this price segment. If you look towards to sell your old phone, this brand gives you a high resale price.
Huawei did this thing great, but I'm still going for Sony if they do the same.
Look how much better Sony made the monochrome sensor to work than Huawei has ever did. It didn't make that much sense until Sony showed its effectivity.
And with the 40MP 1/1.7" sensor of the P20 Pro being a Sony IMX one, I'm definitely sure Sony would also make their own, maybe an even better one, 'cause there's no reason for them to sell better sensors to other OEMs than the ones that they use on their own products
