Those improvements are not enough for me to justify upgrading from my Mate 10 Pro to this new Mate 20 Pro. If it has the old good headphone jack then it definitely a good reason to upgrade.
anybody knows when the Huawei mate 20 pro 8gb ram & 256gb will be in the market, so far I can see offering the 6 - 128.

Samsung phones have DACs?
What's an ISP?
Yep They Do.. But Not The Class Leading Quad DAC In The LGs Though.. But It Is Great In It's Own Right
. I Think It's Wolfsen One.. Cuz Last I Heard Cirrus Logic Was Used On Iphones..
Gets hotspots doing benchmarks, I imagine gaming and shooting video results in same thing. The new Kirin is a Chinese Star but is going to be crushed by next Snapdragon. It barely can hold it's own ground gaming against phones costing a little over half of this flash in the pan Mate, lol.
ROG will kill this in sustained performance metrics an yet cost less unless your all about cameras then the Note would be a better choice. Meh this phone is a camera phone with sporty non gaming soc. Even with gimmicks it's going to fall behind once it goes BBQ state. Bah. Going to beat Apple it was, maybe as laughing stock. Buyer's remorse will set in months down the road with this especially at that price.

Obvious the battery test is flawed. It is absurd to say kirin 980 is worse than kirin 970.
And the cpu/GPU test also was not done on performance mode.
I'm not worried Exynos next generation beats kirin 980 as Exynos uses about twice the number of GPU cores and takes it toll on battery life. Snapdragon next generation no doubt will have better GPU as well but consistent performance, battery life, AI will give kirin 980 a lead in real life.
All the speed tests on YouTube show mate 20 pro killing all others including iPhone despite iPhone benchmarks may fool you into believing otherwise.
Not worth to have this phone.
Slow born and fast drain.... Lol

Which is why he's making such a big deal about the 14 vs 15 hours web browsing battery life, since that is the only thing that is better on the Mate 10 Pro..
I have to admit, I feel like this phone was slightly overhyped. Even so, the phone is fantastic and deserves, nay, BELONGS in the same field as Samsung and Apple phones. The latter two better bring their A game next year. Nice review BTW
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2018I really don't care about those features....just sayingYou are paying for these features as well when you got the phone. So why you shouldn't care? Just saying.
I found the phone to have sub par idle battery life but after going through the setting found out why, 1# according to CPU-Z 2 of the lower power cores run at full speed all the time, 2# by default it seems to have data and Wifi always on even if it is a sleep which will be the biggest power drain. Heck my battery on my tablet if wifi is always drains quick.

Shouldnt you include an "AI benchmark" category? Seems like the new trend is brag about how much pictures this or that SoC can analyse.
Inception and Resnet for example.
