Huawei P20 pro comes with a major innovation.
It is crafted with 3 cameras that produce amazing images with excellent quality and rich colors.
The triple camera setup makes the design unique when viewed from the back.
One downside of the camera is that it’s got a bump. Therefore, the phone will wobble on the table just like some Nokia Android phones.
The device features an all-new design having an all-glass build with a metal frame. This makes it eye-catching, especially in the twilight color. It’s a gorgeous gradient from purple to green.
P20 pro is not only scratch proof, it’s also dust and waterproof.
The screen of Huawei P20 pro is a 6.1-inch AMOLED with a tall 18 by 9 aspect ratio.
It sports a notch that holds the selfie camera and loudspeaker. Should the notch bother you in any way, you can easily make the phone appear “notchless” with just a click.
The display is bright and comes with an auto-mode that gives it a great legibility even under sunlight.

The phone has rounded edges and a curved back glass. It isn’t tapered but it feels thick and sturdy.
Huawei designed the phone with a stereo speaker setup; one speaker is bottom firing and the other doubles as the earpiece. These speakers produce a clear and decently loud sound.
It’s shocking to see that Huawei dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack. Now, you’re left with the option of plugging in a headphone to the USB type-C port or going wireless.
Moving to the front, you’ll find an always-on front-mounted fingerprint scanner that’s just below the screen. It’s fast and responsive to touch.
The good news is that you have an option to use the face unlock if you don’t want to use the fingerprint sensor.
The smartphone runs on a Keren 970 chipset, which delivers an optimum performance in collaboration with the 6GB RAM packed with it.
This chipset’s performance is just about 30% below that of Snapdragon 845 on benchmarks. It’s a good performer that can handle any heavy task effectively.
It is preinstalled with Huawei’s EMUI 8 over Android 8.1 Oreo.
Apps can be stored in the home screen or an app drawer. You can swipe down on the home screen to open an app search bar. This makes it easy to locate any app.
It’s good to know that Huawei is committed to providing a timely Android security update.
The triple camera is the major feature of Huawei P20 pro.
The setup comprises 20MP black and white sensor, 40MP color sensor, and 8MP telephoto lens. The setup uses AI to boost camera performance.
The cameras are amazing as they come with the capability of using 4 different auto-focus technologies. They also detect different modes and tune the settings accordingly.
The phone is capable of shooting super slow-mo videos. And it’s interesting to know that the default camera setting of each camera is 10MP.
Selfie users are not left out in the making of this device. It is packed with a 24MP front-facing camera that provides amazing selfies and can be used to take portrait selfies.

With the powerful 4000mAh battery, you can be sure to enjoy your phone all day long with a single charge.
Charging is pretty fast on this device as it offers up to 46% charge in half an hour. It’s, however, quite disappointing that it doesn’t support wireless charging even though the body is made of glass.

Plenty of Storage Space
You get plenty of storage space of up to 128GB as the internal storage space, but no option of an external memory card. Just like Samsung phones, P20 pro has an IR blaster at the top. This can be used to control supported appliances around the house.
