Everything looks perfect in mate20 pro but i wish its speaker could have to be more louder then atleast p20 pros level
HA!! Huawei claimed that their chips can outmatch the A12 bionic chip from apple but that would be just a dream... but they were great on improving overtime
Gsmarena, could you test the Mate 20 Pro at 54mm equivalent (2x zoom related to the main camera).
I heard that the software is not the final version and Huawei said they'll deliver the update soon. Can you update this review after the final firmware?
LG Superfan, 27 Oct 2018Was expecting alot from Kirin 980 and it disappointed, USB speaker was a bad choice and sound ... moreI'm also waiting on the 20X. I feel like that battery life (especially with the cooling) along with stereo speakers is going to make for an even better phone (and cheaper too).
Kind of surprised the camera's 4K video wasn't that great...that kind of scares me considering I love shooting a good 4K video from time to time...

I can't tell you how much I miss the resolution of the LG, especially when viewing photos. Text also looks more solid and just more real. This is from a foot away.
It's a shame I'll never find a phone with the same resolution as the LG as their g series now uses sub pixel rendering as do all Oleds and the xz premium series render in 1080p.
I've tried the mate 20 pro and I knew it was a pentile screen due to the cross hatch patterns. Even on a 1440p Oled you can still clearly see the pentile artifacts from a foot away.

Abhi Dahiya, 27 Oct 2018From what i see, battery life is still okayish, kirin 980 is disappointing despite being based... moreActually the Mate 20 is much better when it comes to cooling and it has no warm spots or throttling in the benches. There are a few surprises in it battery life, too, but more on that next week :) So, it's not the Kirin's fault per se, not this time anyway. Stay tuned!
Was expecting alot from Kirin 980 and it disappointed, USB speaker was a bad choice and sound worst than last year Mate 10, battery life is ok last year Mate 10 with less efficient LCD display got a bit better score, cameras are same as P20 Pro though wide angle is good (probably the only good thing) overall I'm quite disappointed last year Mate 10 was ahead of competition not this year Mate 20
Hope Gsmarena reviews Mate 20X which seems like a true powerhouse
> "Last year the regular Mate 10 boasted a 1440p screen, while the Pro was limited to 1080p. Well, the Mate 20 lineup rights this wrong..."
- Having 1080p display is NOT wrong! Nobody needs 500+ ppi in just a smartphone. And yes, so called "VR" is firstly just a gimmick, and secondly - not a real virtual reality. Real ones were in "Matrix" and "Sword Art Online".
