Score: 10.29/10

Huawei P40 is a very powerful Android phone launched in April, packing a 6.1 inches screen, a high performance Octa-Core processor ticking at 2.86 gigahertz, and 2 cameras, a 50 megapixels back-facing camera and a 32 MP front-facing camera. We will get a better idea about this phone's pros when we get into more details.

Huawei sells the Huawei P40 in a lot of colors like black, blush gold, deep sea blue, ice white and silver frost. The Huawei P40 body design uses Glass and Metal . This cellphone isn't very light comparing to other devices , with a weight of 6.17 oz. This cellphone is slim and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.33". Although this cellphone only has 5.86" long and 2.8 inches wide, it is still able to fit a a 6.1" display.

This cellphone is equipped with a completely amazing 1080 x 2340 6.1-inches screen, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels that compose the screen.

Huawei decided to build this phone using an extremely powerful Octa-Core processor running at 2860 megahertz, bundled in a HiSilicon Kirin 990 system chip and a big 6 GB RAM memory. A key feature of the Huawei P40 is its huge 128 GB internal storage and even though it doesn't include an external memory slot, it it is more than enough to install tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about running out of space at all.

This cellphone features wi-fi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G insanely fast connection type, 4G (LTE-A) super quick connection type and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a lower speed 4G technology) and fast 3G data connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 50 MP back camera and a 32 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Its back camera lens has a maximum f/1.9 aperture so it can shoot sharp photographs even in poorly lit environments. The Huawei P40 also shoots videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 frames per second. Additionally, the camera includes time lapse video.

This phone also includes lots of cool characteristics like Fingerprint ID, Facial recognition biometrics, Wireless charging, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your device close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth and GPS, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone comes with a huge 3800 mAh non-replaceable battery that provides this device a marvelous battery life. An issue to consider is that the Huawei P40's battery is not removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to last shorter, although having 3800 mAh you will probably discard this cellphone before it happens.
