Huawei Mate 20 Review

Score: 79.5 / 100

Huawei Mate 20 is a very complete Android device released in October 2018, including a large 6.5-inches display, a great 2.6 gigahertz Octa-Core CPU, and two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 24 mega-pixels front facing camera. But it's time to get into more details.

About its design materials, this cellphone is mostly built with Glass and Metal . Huawei appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 6.63 ounces phone. This cellphone has a wonderful design, with a thickness of just 0.33". This cellphone is quite a compact cellphone, given that it presents a 6.5" display and it is only 6.23 inches long. Huawei is offering this phone in 16 777 216 color.

This cellphone is equipped with an extremely fast Octa-Core processor speeding at 2.6 gigahertz, included in a HiSilicon Kirin 980 chip and a big 4 GB RAM memory. This device counts with a large 128 GB internal memory and although it doesn't count with a slot for SD memory cards, it is still enough to install lots of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about how much storage capacity is left.

Huawei packed this cellphone with a completely amazing 6.5" display, and a resolution of 1080 x 2244 , which makes all images and videos look brightful and colorful.

This cellphone features two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 24 MP front-facing camera. this phone's back facing camera lens has an aperture of f/1.8 so it can take awesome pictures even in low lighting situations. It is also able to film 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 frames per second, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos up to 960 frames per second. This camera also counts with time lapse video.

This cellphone offers Wi-Fi connection (and it can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A super fast connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a slower 4G variation) and 3G fast internet connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Huawei Mate 20 uses a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This cellphone packs an amazing 4000 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is not replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to lose its charge, although with such a great capacity you will probably discard this phone before it happens.

This device also comes with lots of great features as Fingerprint ID, Facial recognition biometrics, NFC (Near Field Communication), Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Huawei Mate 20 may not be a great choice considering it costs 519 dollars, while many similar cellphones cost less than that. No matter if you want this cellphone to take lots of pictures, want it majorly for social networks and internet browsing, want a gamer cellphone or want this phone for work, this cellphone is the correct choice for you. This device is packed with Type-C Cable, Warranty card , Protective case, 22.5W Huawei charger, Quick Start Guide, 3.5 mm Headset and Eject Tool.
