There are several actions that could trigger this block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data. With a choice of an ultra-wide, a conventionally wide, and a telephoto camera, the Mate 20 Pro is rich on creative flexibility. I'm probably nitpicking here, but it can slow down your shooting by a few seconds -- which, in a critical moment, might mean the difference between getting the shot or missing it.

With the Mate 20 Pro, Huawei set itself the goal of beating the Galaxy Note 9, and I’m a little surprised to conclude that Huawei has succeeded. The Verge similarly praised its design for having many subtle details and a "satisfying sense of density that only Apple's iPhone X can match". The Mate 20 Pro is one of the first phones we've seen to use an in-screen fingerprint scanner, which is exactly what it sounds like.It doesn’t quite have the same dynamic range in challenging lighting conditions as the Pixel 3, but its low-light performance was great and it’s dedicated night mode is very impressive. It recognised my fingerprint as quickly and accurately as almost any other fingerprint scanner I've used and Huawei says it's just as secure. The cameras were noted as having similar quality to the P20 Pro and a macro mode, but the removal of the monochrome sensor was lamented, and the cameras were panned for overly aggressive AI enhancements and a sometimes "crunchy" appearance due to excessive sharpness.

CNET was similarly positive, noting that the Mate 20 Pro "not only has a spec list that's the equal of any flagship phone out there, but it comes with enough new features to make it a truly exciting phone", and was less aggressive in its use of color saturation on photos than the P20 Pro, but panned Huawei's switch to a proprietary memory card format due to pricing and availability not having yet been announced.The loss of detail is more noticeable at this extra level of digital zoom, but even so, the shots are still crisp enough for a Facebook or Instagram post.

The company says it’ll issue a retail version update soon, and we’ll update this review if there are any changes observed as a result.I’m really not sure whether these downsides overwhelm the upside of the Kirin 980 processor’s quickness and efficiency. If you want, you can even downgrade the Mate 20 Pro resolution to full HD or lower, which reduces battery drain, though that feels like a Harrison Bergeron-level injustice.

It’s a powerful smartphone with three rear cameras and a distinct yet reserved style, but its bold signature is a handful of neat tricks (like an in-screen fingerprint sensor) that are finally coming to mainstream phones. We and our partners also use cookies that allow us to measure traffic and show you personalised content and ads rather than basic shiz. But the ultra wide-angle replacement brings some nice bonuses that elevate the Mate 20 Pro over the P20 Pro. The main camera is 40 megapixels, the ultra-wide is 20-megapixels and there’s a third eight-megapixel telephoto camera.But the Mate 20 Pro is quite a bit more expensive than Samsung’s phone today, so that complicates matters. While it's no longer the newest Huawei phone on the market, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has enough premium features to keep up with recent flagships.
