Huawei P20/P20 PRO – A new mobile MONSTER and THAT’S WHY

The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro has debuted on March 27. Performance wasn’t so much in focus as the Kirin 970 and three lenses camera. With a total of three camera lenses on the back, the Huawei P20 Pro undoubtedly deserves your attention. A triple-camera array is an industry first for photography, but Huawei also crams the P20 Pro with the same super slow motion video you see on the Samsung Galaxy S9, extreme zoom and a feature that promises to take exceptionally even night shots.

Huawei P20 release date and price

The P20 costs 649 euros for 4GB of memory and 128GB of storage. The P20 Pro is 899 euros for 6GB of memory and 128GB of storage. In some countries you can buy it right now. Important: the phone won’t be available directly in the US.

Huawei P20 and P20 Plus: any difference?

The Huawei P20 is a bit smaller and cheaper than the Huawei P20 Pro. The Pro version packs a triple-sensor camera system, OLED display, water-resistance rating alongside more RAM and a larger battery. It’s just the better, more interesting phone.

Huawei P20 main competitors

The main competitors of Huawei P20 can be:

  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • One Plus 6
  • iPhone X
  • Google Pixel 2 XL

As we know the Pixel 2 XL is widely believed to be the best smartphone camera on the market. But if you believe the DxOMark Score, the Huawei P20 Pro is significantly better. As to the Galaxy S9 Plus and iPhone X, they both achieve similar scores to the Pixel 2 XL. It’s a little weird.

DxOMark posted its camera test results for the new Huawei P20 and P20 Plus, and both phones now top its overall list.

The Huawei P20 Pro scored a total 109 rating, the highest ever for a mobile phone on the site.

The Huawei P20 looks to be a great phone you’ll love if you’re upgrading from a two-year-old handset.
