Anonymous, 30 Mar 2020lol, name one game. i'll waitI mean you can't play heavy games on it because of the sh*tty midrange chip and the even more sh*tty mali GPU..
Just watch Youtube videos where they pit 5 flagships against each other and play games on them - the Huawei phones always loose and end up being the worst.
Huawei is garbage.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2020"Huawei's CEO claimed that Kirin 990 could beat SD 855 Plus and even compete with SD 865. Its ... moreThey say their all in one solution thingy innovation crap
The 5G modem is integrated into the chip. I now tell you that Kirin 990 5G does not even suit to be a competitor of 865,or even 855.
Firstly, it only has A76. Everything that is less powerful, they say it consume less power, just like A77. Then when the new things are very useless, they say its 'innovation', just like NM memory cards.
SECONDLY, it only suits to be the competitor of 765G, A76, integrated 5G, what else you gonna SAY?

i don't know why you like this phone so much but i would rather paying $1000 for Samsung or any other brand than paying $1000 for this phone just to found out it can't even run basic apps.

from what i see, they DO placed above op7tp and below oppo find x2p. are we even looking at the same review?
Ejshin, 27 Mar 2020With no google apps, this phone is a cameraphone less a smartphone. Apps such as messenger, whatssup, viber (3 aps that over 1 bil people are using) u can transfer via phone clone application. U dont even need to install it again. Your whole history of conversations will transfer so u can still find something you need in history.
Why not listing 3.5mm jack under cons of the phone !!! To me this is the reason I'm not buying it in the first place.
If Amazon is already selling Huawei phones, why can't Huawei partner with it for applications too and together they can compete with Google play store.
Dear god, do they really have to put that CE and recycling icons on the back rather than somewhere less visible? There is an actual and literal GARBAGE ICON on the back of this top-of-the-line, expensive device. Why?

But for the measured performance, as I was commenting, there is no competition. SD and Apple's chips beat Exynos and Kirin series hands down. The difference is very big considering we are talking flaghips.. Just take look at the benchmarks. That is a fact, it can be measured and quantified and so it is not about opinion.
But you are so eager to defend Kirin (which I speak nothing bad about), that you are missing my point.. Huawei's CEO claimed that Kirin 990 could beat SD 855 Plus and even compete with SD 865. Its pretty obvious when you look at the benchmarks, that this claim is incorrect.
Highest spec, unfortunately i cant afford
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2020That is what Huawei wants you to believe. The fact is Kirin has never been as fast as Snapdrag... moreI believe on what I experienced. If u take it that way, I could say that Kirin 980 goes against SD845, and it surpass it, Kirin 990 goes against SD855, and it surpass it. U could also says its the other way around, SD 865 goes against Kirin 990, and it surpass it and so on.
Like I said, its a never ending cycle. 20% different in performance at specsheet & benchmark, when in real life usage, its just mili-seconds. You still got flagship performance on both Kirin & SD. The important parts are the rest of the specs, that can be more advantage factors.
Considering that they hyped video dedicated sensor the quality of video is not above & beyond as one might think. It's right there in line with the other flagships of this and previous year.
The lack of actual ultrawide is a huge blow to this phone's usability. Why on earth would you do something like that to a perfectly good phone. What was the product design reasoning? "Let's increase the ultrawide photo quality by narrowing it to the point where it's not ultrawide anymore." Do they smoke crack during working hours?
no GMS,expensive, ugly,worst support. Why should someone buy this instead of great devices of Samsung,Apple & Xiaomi

Look at Samsung Galaxy S20 series with Exynos. Those use the same cores as Kirin 990, and Snapdragon 865 wipes the floor with it. A 20% difference in performance for a flagship SOC is massive.
