A Quick Overview of the Huawei P20 Pro

Huawei is a company which has been making waves in recent years.  While originally popular with the Asian marketplace, innovative technological solutions combined with cutting-edge features are allowing their smartphones to quickly gain ground within the western marketplace.  Let’s take a look at the P20 Pro model in order to appreciate what users can enjoy as well as to better understand any potential drawbacks.

All About the Camera

While the functionality of this model from a hardware point of view is impressive, it is critical to mention that the main feature of the P20 which stands out is its triple lens camera.  There are three separate lenses situated in a vertical fashion.   These include a 40-megapixel RGB colour unit, an 8-megapixel telephoto version and a 20-megapixel monochrome variant.  The end result is that this could very well be the perfect phone for those who are keep photographers or who simply enjoy snapping images on a regular basis.  However, this is only the beginning.

Software and Screen

The P20 Pro is powered by Android 8.1 Oreo technology and this is said to be one of the most popular systems for Android users.  Many of the user warnings in regards to battery life have been removed and experts agree that this streamlined update should prove to be quite popular.  It is equipped with an octa-core 970 processor along with six gigabytes of RAM and an additional 128 gigabytes of internal storage capacity.  In other words, there are few issues in regards to the performance of its applications.  This power is then enhanced thanks to a new and improve 4,000 mAh battery; offering a greater lifespan when compared to previous models.

The OLED screen is nothing to necessarily brag about, but it is still in the middle of its class for a phone of this size and value.  The colour balance is impressive and its contrast levels are excellent; not a coincidence considering the time that developers put into the triple lens camera.  While some might have slight issues with viewing the screen during daylight hours, it is nonetheless excellent for viewing videos and images.

Any Potential Drawbacks?

One of the only issues (and quite a major one at that) is that the Huawei P20 Pro does NOT currently offer wireless charging capabilities.  This is a bit frustrating, as similar phones of its class now provide this option as a standard feature. We have to wonder if this was sacrificed in favour of the massively advanced camera.  If so, will consumers look past this downside or could it be a deal breaker?  Considering the host of other features associated with this model, it may be argued that wireless charging is not as important as it would have otherwise been.

Reasonably priced, employed an advanced Android operating system and offering a top-of-the-line camera, the Huawei P20 Pro is certainly worth a closer look.
