The best Huawei smartphone of 2018 is here and it’s probably the best one of the best Android smartphone in the market right now and it’s the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The smartphone is first one to be powered by Kirin 980 chipset and it has a focus on AI. So what do I think about the smartphone? Check it out on our first impressions below.
Inside the box
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s box is the unit itself, a free jelly case, a fast charger which made for the Mate 20 Pro, a headphone jack dongle, earphones and a USB-C cable. Well, nothing really special inside the box but the fast charger of the smartphone is really damn fast and they really mean it. It’s the fastest smartphone charger that I’ve tested. EVER.
All I can say is that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the best-looking smartphone that the company has ever released. You might think that the square camera set up at the back is hideous but no, it’s actually pretty cool and it looks good especially with the available colors of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
The one that we got for review is twilight color but the Emerald Green looks better and it feels better due to the special glass texture of the back of the smartphone and it also a grip to the smartphone which is really cool. The design of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is very ergonomic to the hand as the smartphone features a curved glass on the front and the back which makes the smartphone easier to hold. Not only that, but it also adds beauty to the smartphone.
Unfortunately, the smartphone ditches the headphone jack similar to the Huawei P20 series. Instead, they’ve included a headphone jack out of the box which is fine to me as most of my accessories are already wireless.
So far, I like the curved OLED display of the smartphone. yes, it has a bigger notch compared to the Huawei P20 Pro but it does have more sensors which allow me to use the face unlock despite having no light and the bezel is thinner compared to the P20 series thanks to lack of the physical fingerprint scanner below the display. The fingerprint scanner of the smartphone works really and faster well too compared to other smartphones. the curved display definitely adds a lot of sexiness to the smartphone.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro now features a different camera setup as it now features a 40MP RGB lens, 8MP telephoto lens, and a 20MP Leica Ultra wide angle lens. in our experience, we were pretty happy with the results that we got from the camera. The night mode is still amazing and the smartphone is still mind-blowing. But we’ll get down to that once we’re done reviewing the smartphone
We’re not done reviewing the smartphone. The one that we’re reviewing doesn’t have the final software but all I can say is that it’s my favorite smartphone right now. It features everything that I want on a smartphone and the wide-angle lens of the Mate 20 Pro is really amazing.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is now available for Php49,990
