Huawei P20 Pro Complete Review 2019

Smartphone manufacturers take flagships very seriously, primarily because these devices represent their full potential. HUAWEI’s P series has always been a pioneer of smartphone photography. Now the HUAWEI P20 Pro is once again leading the way with the revolutionary Leica Triple Camera, where aesthetic vision meets an advanced camera system that shines a light on intelligent photography. The P20 Pro is covered in smooth, curved glass with chrome-coated sides. Two of the phone’s color choices – twilight and pink gold – have an ombré-style rear, with the color gradient subtly changing from top to bottom. The other two colors – champagne gold and black – aren’t quite as fancy.

Aside from the camera, the biggest change over the Huawei P10 lies in the P20 Pro’s improved physical appearance, which is uncannily iPhone X-like in design. Heck, it’s 18.7:9 display even has a notch eating away at the screen at the top – although it’s roughly a third the size of Apple’s version – and the vertical camera arrangement on the rear has a ring of similarity about it as well.
