Huawei Mate 20 Pro is an awesome smartphone, no doubts. Generally the only problem with it is the price. In the end of the day it's a hugely overpriced Chinese phone. And I'm pretty sure that "old" iPhone X is a way more advanced piece of technology and overall better quality phone for less money right now.
ryballs, 28 Oct 2018Why is everyone saying the M20 Pro has poor battery life when it gets 14 hours while web brows... moreBecause they are always obsessed with Artificial numbers! Every youtube reviewer who has extensively used the Mate 20 pro was amazed by the Mate 20pro battery. Despite that lovely screen and all that tech that mate 20 pro has, still manages to blow most of the flagships! I admit i haven't used Mate 20 pro yet but i can base my facts from many YouTubers who have actually used the Mate 20 pro, and all of them have praised its battery capability.
Why is everyone saying the M20 Pro has poor battery life when it gets 14 hours while web browsing? As web browsing/apps are what people mainly use their phones for nowadays, that's the number I'm mostly interested in. Compare the M20 Pro's 14 hours to other flagships with similar display size: Note9 only gets 12.5 hours and iPhone XS gets even less at 11 hours. Of course M20 Pro gets less battery life than the M10 Pro, it has a bigger screen with higher resolution and many additional features that all eat up the battery life. Considering all that I think the 14 hours web browsing battery life is great. Also to those people complaining about OIS, if the photos are still class leading without it and the video has great EIS, who cares?
Shanti Dope, 28 Oct 2018I've tried the Mate 20 in real life, and I was surprised to see some crazy pixelations even at... moreR5+ display is sharper than Huawei Mate 20 only on paper and just by 22 ppi - no human could tell that difference.
Also, I compared my R5+ to Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) - just the same sharpness of everything, and no imaginary "pentile artifacts".
And no, 500 ppi and QHD resolution are not necessary for any smartphone screens. Not to mention that overwhelming majority of video-content (especially tv series) is in 1080p, if not less. And download speeds had not pumped up that high to provide same time for downloading QHD or UHD.

I haven't seen any "pentile artifacts" on Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) in front of my eyes.

If you happen to know about the trade wars between China and US you will understand what am talking about.

(And meanwhile stick to my beloved device. the Note 9) Until I will find a better alternate. SO FAR. the note answered all my needs. I kinda expect to the 10. but the 3.5mm jack removal worries me.

This only goes to show this pathetic company is all bark and no bite. But i guess it's expected from a desperate company that can't even get into the american market.
Lol this phone is a joke. Huawei boasts of a "large" battery and yet this gimmick has a shorter battery life than its predecessor. So much for 7nm power efficiency. Not worth a penny over $450.
Josh, 28 Oct 2018I just find it odd! Why are you contended with your Note 9 and yet you look so disturbed by Ma... moreI actually do. but I always seek a better device. I have the SM-N960U1. 845/8/512 version.
my ultimate goal is to find the PERFECT smartphone.
I think this Mate 20 is impressive. I owned Mate 10 & P20 Pro and what i can say that both are great. Except that the casing for these phones are hard to find in Malaysia, if you compare with iPhones or Galaxy S or Note. 😅
Siput Sarawak, 28 Oct 2018LG V40 the best choice! Noted! Then stop complaining about Mate 20 pro and get yourself a LG V40, problem solved.
Kiyasuriin, 28 Oct 2018Nope. A fail. 85h on a 4200 mAh battery? My note 9 gets 97h... and WHO PUTS the speaker INSIDE... moreI just find it odd! Why are you contended with your Note 9 and yet you look so disturbed by Mate 20 pro review! That can only mean one thing, you don't even own a Note 9! You the kind of people i call keyboard trolls!!
Whackcar, 28 Oct 2018As expected, the Mate 20 Pro is spectacular all around & arguably the best smartphone of 2... moreYou mean camera? Smartphone is far from to be best. It has very poor ergonomics fit only to 2+ meter tall people.
What's going on with P20 Pro? In original review color reproduction was very good, but in comparison it always fails. Looks like Huawei made P20 Pro camera to work worse with updates to make Mate 20 Pro to look better.
Siput Sarawak, 28 Oct 2018Yeah kind of stupid to put 40mp camera whereas 16mp still seem better.
Also stupid to put 4... moreIts not about mp anyway, all depends on how camera captures that and how its processed. Capturing multiple frames and not adding digital noise is way better than relying on hw to do the job(as certain premium phone does).
Hi res was always good in daylight, with only low light scenarios needing less resolution. So can be done for hdr(as sony using full resolution), so sw was always most important factor for great output(thats how apple survived on 1/3" sensor).
