Huawei P20 Review

Score: 9.33/10

Huawei P20 is a wonderful Android phone released some years ago, in 2018, provisioned with a really big 5.8 inches screen, an extremely powerful 2.36 gigahertz Octa-Core processing unit, and 2 cameras, a 12 MP back side camera and a 24 megapixels front camera. Great! That's it? No, it's only the tip of the iceberg.

About its body materials, the Huawei P20 is manufactured with Glass and Metal . This time, it seems like Huawei forgot about weight optimization in this 5.82 ounces phone. Huawei made the Huawei P20available only in lots of color options, black, blue, gold and pink. This cellphone is extremely thin, being just 0.3 inches thick. While this cellphone is only 5.87 inches long and 2.79" wide, it's able to fit a a 5.8" display.

Huawei sells this phone with a HiSilicon Kirin 970 system chip, backed up by a high speed Octa-Core processor speeding at 2.36 gigahertz and a big 4 GB of RAM memory. The Huawei P20 has a 128 GB awesome internal memory and although it doesn't include an SD memory slot, it it is more than enough to store lots of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 12 MP back camera and a 24 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Its back camera has an aperture of f/1.8 so it can shoot awesome pictures even in poor lighting environments. This phone can also capture videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 960 frames per second. In addition, the camera features time lapse video and auto-focus.

Huawei equipped this cellphone with a great 5.8-inches screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2244 , which makes all images and videos look beautiful and brightful.

This phone uses a high capacity 3400 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that provides this device an incredible battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that the Huawei P20's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to have trouble holding its charge, though with such a big battery you will probably discard this phone before it becomes a real problem.

This cellphone has Wi-Fi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A ultra fast internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a bit slower 4G network) and 3G fast connection type, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone uses 2 Nano SIM cards so it can to work with two different phone lines and even different carriers in the same cellphone.

The Huawei P20 also features many great features like Biometric fingerprint, Face unlock, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth cellphones, computers and accessories) and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone is definitely a great choice for you it doesn't matter whether you will use it as a work device, want it mainly for internet broswing and social networks, want it to take tons of pictures or will use this cellphone for gaming.
