Our long term review of Huawei’s brilliant P20 Pro shows how this tri-camera smartphone has aged over in 2019 – months after the Mate 20 Pro’s launch, is the P20 still worth picking up? Well, I’ve been using Huawei’s flagship mobile full-time again to see if I still love it, ahead of the EMUI 9 update and the imminent UK release of the P30 Pro.
First up, that camera tech hasn’t aged at all. Besides the shonky image stabilisation at 4K level, the P20 Pro still captures incredible-looking results. Night snaps are of course its highlight, but this phone is a wonder for parents too.
Performance and battery life haven’t suffered in the long term either. A full year on, Huawei’s Kirin 970 chipset still does the job, helped by GPU Turbo for PubG Mobile. And while we’re still waiting on Huawei’s latest Emotion UI update, the P20 Pro offers a feature-packed experience.
Check out my review to see what I think of Huawei’s flagship in 2019, and stay tuned for my full coverage of the P30 smartphones!
