Reviews for the Huawei P20

90.8% Huawei P20 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Insider tip? The Huawei P20 is 250 Euros cheaper than its sibling Huawei P20 Pro, but its Leica dual-camera is basically on par and the hardware is just as powerful. How does the 5.8-inch device compete with other high-end rivals?

The follow-up to the P10 has plenty of high points, not least the camera and hardware, but the Huawei P20 doesn’t quite have enough to compete with 2018’s best flagships. It seems the much better P20 Pro is doing that instead.

Checking out Vodafone’s best selling plan for the Huawei P20 reveal that the smartphone was available for £36 per month following an initial £10 upfront payment. For this you get 4GB of Data plus unlimited minutes and text. Also included is Vodafone Global Roaming and three months free trial of Internet security software, namely Vodafone Secure Net. This latter feature will then be available for £1 per month. The Huawei P20 is well worth considering.

First Impressions: A weekend with the Huawei P20

After these first few days, using the Huawei P20 has shown me that it is an excellent phone. Naturally, Huawei focused more on the Pro version, but this standard version can beneficially support many consumers. I can already tell I will be enjoying this phone, especially after I can spend a whole day personalizing it without having work interrupt me. Our full review will be available in a couple of weeks, and other articles may arrive soon as well. See you soon.

The Huawei P20 Series is a leap forward from an Industrial Design point of view, and the P20 Pro is an excellent representative of the new family. The new design is elegant, but packs an impressive battery capacity at the same time. The thinness comes at the expense of an internal wireless charging system, but we can overlook this because it charges so fast over USB-C.

If you have a deep interest in photography, the tri-camera-packing Huawei P20 Pro is the smartphone for you. But, if like most customers, you’re after a handset that offers fantastic build quality and high-end performance for a price that compared to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone X won’t break the bank, then look no further than the Huawei P20. It certainly won’t disappoint.

While the Huawei P20 can't beat its bigger brother, it has much to offer.

The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro are hard to judge in terms of overall devices. Compared to last year’s P10 series, we see upgrades across the board in terms of design, performance, battery and camera. But what matters is the comparison to the competing devices as well, and there things are a little less evident.

Huawei P20 review - Slimmer, sleeker and smarter cameraphone
Source: Tech Nave English
If you like taking photos but don’t need the water resistance or triple rear cameras of the Huawei P20 Pro, then the Huawei P20 is an excellent cameraphone by itself. In fact, it feels like how the 1st Kirin 970 smartphone should have been due to its sleek, compact and more easy to hold design, stunning looks and great performance. The AI-assisted still shots and other AI features make the P20 worth a lot more than the parts themselves and practically everything (gaming, design, battery, calls, connectivity, etc.) works superbly.

So as much as the P20 is a phone with an admirable screen, camera and all-round performance, it doesn’t distinguish itself enough to go toe-to-toe with them. Hence it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than the iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S9 and company when bought on contract. If you’d prefer the spare cash in your pocket to a more innovative phone, then the Huawei P20 is well worth your consideration.

Source: Zdnet.com English
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a long lasting solid smartphone and the P20 brings all of those experiences in a slightly smaller form factor. However, the Mate 10 Pro has that excellent rear fingerprint sensor and a larger battery so it may be a better choice for the enterprise. In either case, you can pick up an excellent competitor to Samsung for $650 to 750.

The Huawei P20 comes from a well-established flagship breed, which has never disappointed us. The focus on the camera this year didn't tip the scales against other features such as design and display. The P20 is as stunningly beautiful as it is powerful. And while the notched screen isn't everybody's favorite, it is the top pick of the season, and we can't argue with people's choice.

The Huawei P20 is a brilliant flagship blower, offering sleek design work paired with some really clever hardware and software.

Le Huawei P20 n'est pas le meilleur smartphone de la marque. Le Huawei P20 Pro endosse ce rôle. Le P20 n'est pas non plus le meilleur smartphone haut de gamme du marché. Le Galaxy S9 ou l'iPhone X sont plus complets sur plusieurs critère. En revanche, le Huawei P20 est la meilleure proposition du marché à l'heure actuelle. Le chinois réussit à intégrer tout ce qui fait permet à un smartphone de porter l'étiquette "haut de gamme" : le Huawei P20 est puissant, endurant, son design est travaillé, son interface est fluide et surtout son appareil photo est au top.

Comment

Model: The Huawei P20 introduces the all-new Leica Dual Camera. It is inspired by the luminous waves of light energy that fill our cosmos. Its curved glass body juxtaposes the concepts of strength and light for a truly illuminating smartphone design. The Twilight and Midnight Blue Huawei P20 have a high-gloss finish made via a 'high-hardness' vacuum protective coating and nano-vacuum optical gradient coating. This surface is just as robust as those on other Huawei products, but its high gloss sheen can show slight signs of wear over time. The quality of the screen is good. The Huawei P20 doesn’t use an OLED panel like its sibling the P20 Pro. It’s a 1,080 x 2,244, IPS RGBW panel instead, but it’s perfectly bright and colorful. There’s plenty of brightness (456 cd/m2), ensuring decent readability in the bright ambient light. It even has some nice extra features, including the ability to automatically set the white balance of the screen depending on the ambient light, just like on an iPhone or an iPad. A user can switch between normal (sRGB) and vivid (DCI P3) modes. The P20 is a camera-led handset. However, while the Huawei P20 Pro includes a triple rear camera, the P20 has to make do with two on the back and one on the front. The camera app has the typical Huawei raft of modes, but what’s different is that the phone will switch between them based on what it thinks a user is trying to accomplish. The AI enhancements generally do make for a better photo.

When the user aims the camera at people, it switches into Portrait mode, and the shots came out well. The bokeh effect is noticeable and adds a professional vibe. There’s also plenty to play with on the video side. Rather than OIS or EIS, the P20 calls its image stabilization AIS, which gives Artificial Intelligence/Image Stabilisation. Besides that, the front-facing camera offers a very generous 24 MP at f/2.0. Powering the P20 is the octa-core 2.4GHz HiSilicon Kirin 970 chip as found in the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and this is backed up by 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It’s a quick phone, although not quite the fastest. The P20 is fast and responsive in all the right ways, and this extends across all the phone’s functions. The P20 comes with EMUI version 8.1, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. EMUI, which is what Huawei calls its ‘Emotion’ overlay for Android, now looks more like the stock version of Android than ever, with a few extras. The P20 also includes Face Unlock. It is quick and effective, and it recognized people both with and without makeup and glasses. The P20 is a flagship like device but it lacks the main feature that was featured in Huawei’s marketing campaign – the triple camera setup. The triple camera setup makes the P20 Pro a whole new device but without it, the regular P20 doesn’t seem like a worthy upgrade to the P10.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Huawei: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. is a Chinese company founded in 1987 with focus on telecommunications hardware and 170000 employees. In the first quarter of 2016, Huawei had a market share of 8.2% in the smartphone market, making it the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world.

There are a lot of reviews on Huawei phones with slightly above average ratings (as of 2016).
82.56%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
