Huawei P20 Pro: Pros or Reasons to buy


  • Rear Camera: The triple Rear Camera Setup has a main 40 MP (f/1.8) with OIS, 20 MP (f/1.6) Monochrome sensor also with OIS and an 8MP (f/2.4) telephoto lens. Starting with the shots, the huge sensors of the phone make the captured shot look pretty good with accurate colours, ample amount of details and even nice dynamic range. The wide lens allows more light to enter and thus, with the help of the AI the processed image seems really good. The AI also can recognize the colour of the object you are about to capture and adjusts the colour of the image accordingly. The camera of the Huawei P20 Pro is so excellent that it has scored the highest on the charts of DXOMARK. And, yeah! the triple camera setup captures one of the greatest portrait shots. Summing up, in terms of the camera the Huawei P20 Pro leaves behind one of the best flagships phone out there like Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, Google Pixel 2XL and the iPhone X.

  • Front camera: The 24 MP front facing camera performs really well too. It offers shots with a good amount of details and the colour reproduction done is nicely done. Even In low lit situations, the camera manages to capture good selfies and as HDR mode helps in colouring the extra darker areas in.
  • You can record a standard 1080p video with OIS. However, 4K is also supported but you can’t record videos in 4K with OIS.Huawei P20 front camera setup
  • Like most of the other Flagship Smartphones, the Huawei P20 Pro also has the Face unlock feature, which works really well even in a dark room.
  • The beautiful 6.1-inch display is an AMOLED Display which has a beautiful colour contrast. The viewing angles on the Huawei P20 is amazing, the colour and brightness remain consistent when viewed from any angle. The physical buttons present on the sides of the Huawei P20 Pro feels tactile also, the overall look and feel of the phone are good and premium.

Huawei P20 Futuristic display

  •  The phone has a metal body with a glossy and mirror finish. Trust me, the twilight colour of the Huawei P20 Pro is absolutely gorgeous (check the image below), it feels amazing in hand and the colour of the phone shifts when you look at it from different angles.

  • The beautiful notch style and the 19:9 aspect ratio screen gives the Huawei P20 Pro a futuristic and Smart look.

  • The Huawei P20 Pro is packed with some important sensors like Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor and a Gyroscope sensor that let you enjoy Videos and Games in VR. Also, there is an IR blaster place on top of the phone which lets you control your IR supported devices like the TV or your AC right away from your phone.
  • Huawei has placed the fingerprint on the front- bottom chin bezel of the phone. The fingerprint sensor is surprisingly super fast and unlocks the phone in a split-second.
  • The box of the phone includes a transparent case included which is supposed to keep the Smartphone fingerprint and smudge resistant.
  • The Kirin processor paired with the huge 6RAM offers smooth multitasking and at the same times lets you play some heavy games like Asphalt 8 and PUBG mobile with no noticeable lag.
  • The speakers’ Audio output is loud and clear and does not tends to change its pitch when used at Max volume.
  • The Huawei P20 Pro runs on Huawei custom EMUI based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Love it differently the EMUI offers some really cool features like dual apps or freedom to customize your own Phone.
  • The Huawei P20 Pro comes with a USB-C which allows quicker data transfer. The one more thing that is cool about the Huawei P20 Pro is it’s insanely fast charging. Huawei P20 fast charging

Huwaei P20 Pro: Cons or Reasons not to buy


  • Although the  Kirin processor is a powerful enough chip, It sure can record videos in 4K but the chip is not powerful enough to use OIS for 4K videos resulting in a video with a lot of Jitters.
  • However, we can all agree on the fact that the Huawei P20 Pro is great for capturing Images. But what about Videos? The answer is “not so much” as HuaweiP20 Pro can’t record 4K videos using the front-facing camera.
  • The glass and glossy back finish of the HuaweiP20 Pro are indeed eye-catching but at the same time, it attracts a lot of fingerprint and smudges to its surface. We would recommend using the transparent case provided in the box.
  • After so many good things about this Smartphone, it was disappointing to see the absence of a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Instead, you are provided with an earphone converter.

Surely, if you’re a person who loves taking pictures then you should definitely go for the Huawei P20 Pro as it has scored the highest score on the charts of DXOMARK. The Huawei P20 Pro has nothing to prove to its competitors in term of its camera performance. But, a few of its cons might be a major issue for some people, some people might not appreciate the lack of the headphones jack or the lack of OIS while shooting a 4K videos. Besides that, the Huawei P20 Pro is a device packed features, stylish look and a great camera.
