Given the huge difference between normal and performance mode, you should run the battery test in performance mode as well.

by the way there are a lot of other costs (rather than the "unit production cost") that must be included in the final MSRP:
* marketing cost
* warehouse/distribution costs
* indirect sales costs
* local/foreign taxes
so when you say that this "almost perfect piece of hardware" can be selled at $700 price range tells me you don't know too much about economics...
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2020Despite never used iPhone myself, but, the fact Huawei's own store is practically useless... moreYou haven't used an iPhone and clearly you haven't used a Huawei either. Huawei has its own Appgallery and whatever you can't there you can search for it with Petal search. It'll find your app and install it. You can also install other appstores if you wish. Maybe you think that's too hard but it's on about the same level as using the Playstore.

If the huawei had the google stuff..clearly it gonna be the winner among the other smartphone...
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2020Those that want Youtube without side loading, look into Youtube Vanced.Huawei App comes with Youtube Vanced?? Last time I check, the Author does not have any offical repo list on any store... If Huawei added themself without permission... Well...
Otherwise, it still count as side-load.

1. You obviously live in China to be able to live without it;
2. You such a fanboy that you can ignore and sideline the fact that it is inconvenient for a Android phone without Playstore and contempt with side-load or 3rd party store that still have outdated unreliable updating mechanism.
Either way, you no better than the so called US government believer, but a Chinese one... How is that better? It just the same, different side of the compass.

But you obviously, like GSMArena, trying to avoid the fact that out of the box, the default store is near non-usable for the western market. Yes, it the app and easy of access to the apps I'm talking about, if you cannot comprehend from my list of point.
You try and let your parent or grandparent buy a Huawei, and explain them over the phone, they need to install 3rd party store or side-load simple daily use apps to keep in contract with rest of the family such as Whatsapp or facebook. Not to mention most 3rd party store mechanism of software update is no way near convenient as the default store.
Phone of the year 2020, and people here are deflecting from that fact with US lies and nonsense. Face it, these phones are head and shoulders above iRubbish.

Sont worry much , if you work for the government with sensitive DATA , no phone is allowed to be used for work . only laptops.

Just roll this phone for $700 and it will steal all the market and people wont care about google anymore.
and big no , it is not $500 for Google , because the phone is overpriced . and I dont care about Apple Pricing .. companies are overpricing their phones because Apple is overpricing their phone.
The cost of making this phone wont be more than $350 and can be sold for $700
Those that want Youtube without side loading, look into Youtube Vanced.
Naah,okay phone,but ni google apzz.
Truth is that its so important,also many security apz cant install bciz ban from usa.
Example i cant use any bank accoubt apzz...thats crucial.
Huawei phones are good not better than best ones but bciz many usefyll apzx and inportant security options not work,cant see why i buy it.
Im sure yhat huawei doing something wrong from spying things,so many coutries denied it...i mean so many cant be wrong..
Anyway,i wait alot huawei 30 pro phones..but i must say,big dissapointment.
Only camera was good,but if camera is like galaxy s7 edge level,it is enoug 99% users..really..i mean fast focus,great pics.
Bad and sad for huawei...i dont buy huawei phone bfore its have all right and can use goigle appz.

Although I'm about to drop a few to Huawei, 1st I'd still tip my hat and respect that they still have the balls to put out another updated flagship. Because:- well obviously they're still being victimized by this Trumpian idiocy of a no Google ban and they're running of other partners due to said ban.
But getting back to the topic which is the phone, there's a few missed opportunities. 1st that hideous notch. ZTE already proved that an under display front cam can be done and Huawei of all Chinese OEMs imho are still capable enough. They should have waited just a bit longer and figure out an improved solution. Especially when/if you're not really in a good position to "keep up" to a "normal" annual model refreshes because of the ban.
Secondly there's still a legitimate loophole that Huawei themselves were dumb enough to have overlooked; official bootloader unlocking. This would allow users who choose to unlock, to then proceed and flash AOSP based custom ROMs so that they'll gain back the core GMS. Legitimate because this only applies to the international users and not all. Maybe a maximum of 10% but a very very important 10%. That's 10% "goodwill" that you can't measure with just money. This 10% mobile tech nerds if/when they talk, spread the word and assure about a product their friends and audience listens. If they say that this is the real flagship to slay the Pixels due to better hardware, people listen. But for them to do exactly that, they'll need the code/software/firmware freedom to back that up.
