Shui8, 02 Nov 2018See? Vanilla Mate 20 is a great choice. Excellent review! Everything is on spot and as i su... moreIf it is sold by one of the telco in malaysia then the phone comes with the global firmware? If you can get one with the global firmware this phone is a good buy....
Pinoy, 04 Nov 2018Made in ChinaSo the same build quality as iPhones!
"Unfortunately, volume was only average", my... problem is that volume is almost always too loud even on the lowest volume level, especially in a quiet environment!
Only two questions. Does it support wireless charging and the camera quality it is better than P20 Pro?
qqq, 03 Nov 2018Does this device have notification led? Yes, there is a small led light inside the notch.
To fix the standby battery drain, go to Settings>battery>app launch>untick manage app automatically.
damn, 03 Nov 2018Everytime I look at a review of a Huawei phone it reminds me how bad Huawei is at UI design. C... moreUI is a personal preference, & i get that. But there are hundreds of themes to choose from in EMUI, even can be customized. May i know what is your favourite UI/icon/interface theme? I'm looking on new themes for my phone. Any ideas?
Everytime I look at a review of a Huawei phone it reminds me how bad Huawei is at UI design. Color palette, homescreen, icons, toggles, grid, etc... everything looks so dated it hurts. Like using Android Gingerbread. The only one with similar ugly design is LG.
Is this considered a flagship with no water protection?
And the Kirin chip is only top of the line for the Kirin Chips, Different than the A12 and SD845 chips. You really can't compare.
Aside from the lack of an IP68 rating this is a nice phone, even with the water drop notch as it seems relatively small. Not sure if I could go back to a flat screen after my edge as it just fells nice in the hands.
Nice honest pro / con list though.
one thing is certain...if you want good camera on phone Huawei is your mate.
-Nice design with flat front and grippy glass back
-Bright display with great contrast, small notch
-Dependable battery with SuperCharge support
-Top of the line Kirin 980 chipset with AI
-All-round camera experience with great daylight and night shots
-Excellent video stabilization
-3.5mm jack as STANDARD. sounds like music to our ears
-Waterdrop NOTCH, well still better than the FUGLY NOTCH on Mate 20 Pro, right?
-No water resistance
-Low-quality top speaker
-NM cards only! What is Huawei doing?! Huawei could have made the new slot compatible with microsd card!
-No autofocus on the selfie camera
-Abysmal low-light performance of the ultra-wide-angle camera
-The 4K video quality could have been better
-Display could have looked much BETTER WITHOUT NOTCH.
There, editor, fixed it for you.
Now I'm waiting on the 20X. And this phone has LTE compatibility in a variety of markets
"The custom Exynos chipset is as fast as the latest Kirin"
Whackcar, 02 Nov 2018That's ok then. I should remind you though, that there is also the Mate 20 X, which has the sa... moreThe X is too big for me.
This Mate 20 sounds big as well at 6.5" size, but when compare with my older Honor 8 pro 5.7" screen side by side, it has almost the same size body footprint! I love it and i think its the maximum size that i can hold & accept.
