So this smartphone has better screen , faster wireless charging , better zoom than p40 pro
It has the most versatile camera right now but i wouldn't give it 4.5 because it lacks stereo speakers which is disappointing , headphones jack and bad video quality it is not flagship level
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2020"All-round connectivity, though no 3.5mm jack." this actually is a pros ? wtf and bad video r... moreExactly. Thank you. Unfortunately I can't think of other examples who went through some harsh treatment (well, more recently the Xperia 1 II with only 4.3), but I still remember the ROG 2 with only lack of SD (but 1 TB storage), 244 grams weight, and non-flagship camera experience as negatives, everything else insanely positive, getting 4.4 rating. What a joke.
CompactPhones5ever, 10 Jun 2020Not a fan of Huawei at all, but hot damn, they're on a different level with the camera. It... moreNot really. Huawei have recognised the importance of photography on smartphones for a long time now (it's partnership with Leica dates back years for example). This phone was developed and designed before the American trade issues were brought to the fore. Huawei have had consistently good cameras for a while now, look at the Mate 20 Pro (2018) and the P30 Pro (2019) which can still cut it with todays flagships. They're not "overcompensating" due to lack of GMS, they're carrying on as they were. Don't forget the bulk of income from these phones comes from their own domestic market, which don't depend on GMS at all.
sad..really sad that goole maps,youtube and all thouse not work it,so is usuable.
but,im not impressed it.
This is the only cell in the market with full G5 bands
implemented from 700Mhz to over 5GHz, correct ?
Samsung releases 100x zoom camera - turns out to be 4x optical zoom.
Huawei releases 10x optical zoom camera - turns out to be 8.5x optical zoom
At least it's closer to the truth.
Proprietary memory cards are a complete deal breaker for me. I don't get why Huawei insists on this.

I heard that if there is one then you can activate the AI 50MP by tapping it, and the icon will turn red to indicate that it is enabled. The AI 50MP mode is nothing to do with Master AI, it works more like a AI 48MP Ultra Clarity mode on Honor View 20 that combines several full res images to get the highest amount of details, so it's definitely worth trying out (unless your unit still hasn't received the firmware update, of course).
That price, though, is batshit crazy! There’s nothing that warrants such a high price besides *maybe* the camera. Besides that, ot does not have the best display / SoC / Speakers / etc. yet, it’s one of the most expensive phones out there. Oh, and the lack of GMS makes it an even less attractive offer.

One more thing - the samples in this review are all shot with Master AI on. I've switched it off for some of the shots and found no difference.
Whackcar, 10 Jun 2020Best set of cameras on any phone to date. Also, the rest of the phone is top-notch as well.
... moreTrump had to stop Huawei from destroying Apple sales in the US. Huawei was becoming more and more of threat to Apple. Their phones are top notch and people were recognizing their quality more and more so Trump had to stop the bleeding because probably "Tim Apple" talked to him and explained the situation was becoming serious.
But it's just a matter of time. Either US opens again to Huawei or probably China will block the iPhone in China as a retaliation and China is a HUGE market. So tough choice.

I'm just wondering, are you going to add photos taken in AI 50MP mode into the sample gallery? Apparently it takes much higher quality photos than both auto and the regular 50MP mode do, and I'd like to see it in action because nobody talks about it. Thanks.

I used binoculars to see the actual texture - looked the same, then moved my finger around the camera to see of it's some sort of real-time image shopping or not - it looked like the real deal. That's why it is not as "perfect" as the ones from the P30 Pro - not using the database. Or, at least, in this case.
