Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro Hands-on Review

Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro Review

Huawei are given us a first look at the Huawei Mate 20 Lite during ” Eva ” where we got a glimpse of what the Huawei Mate 20 Pro might look like and what features it might have, we are and we’re taking a first look at the Huawei Mate 20 the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Huawei watch GT .

if you look at the Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro you’ll notice one strange thing, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is actually the smaller one with the wider notch .

but there are a few trade-offs here, for starters the pros got a 6.39 inch display with dual curves while the larger Huawei Mate 20 Pro has a bigger 6.35 inch display with a smaller dewdrop notch as Huawei is call it .

the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has an AMOLED screen while the Huawei Mate 20 has an RGBW LCD screen, of course the other main difference is that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro now has proper 3d facial recognition like the iPhones face ID . Read More : Huawei Mate 20 X

complete with an IR camera and flood illuminator unlike Apple though while we did keep the fingerprint scanner, but hid it under the display .

this is called Huawei’s dynamic pressure sensor, it’s quick and reliable but it does require a bit more pressure into the glass, the scanner is right in the lower middle part of the screen and it will briefly flash when you bring your hand towards it .

otherwise lift the phone and the screen will light up telling you where to press, meanwhile the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has the smaller notch which only houses a camera, the normal sensors and a slotted earpiece .

on the right is the return of the red accented power key, which I like more OEM should do this, meanwhile the SIM tray is now on the bottom and the USBC port is right next to it, and on top there’s an IR blaster, mostly seen on Chinese phones these days .

if you’ve noticed there’s a different texture on the blue and green color options, which Huawei it calls hyper optical, it’s got a vinyl record like texture for improved grip and it hides fingerprints a little better than the traditional color options with regular glass .

speaking of glass, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Huawei Mate 20 Pro are compatible with 15 watt wireless charging and Huawei super charge gets an update 240 watt charging on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro . Read More : Huawei Mate 20

Huawei claims it can charge 70% of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s for to 200 milliamps hour battery in half an hour, that’s ridiculously fast, the regular mate 20 uses the current generation Huawei supercharged for its 4000 milliamp hour battery .

one feature though that really blew my mind was reverse wireless charging, this is a first you can use the phone to charge other Qi wireless devices by placing them right on top, keep in mind though, it might take a while before the power actually starts to flow .

moving up the back of the phone is huawei’s new camera square, Huawei arranged its triple camera like this to make the phone stand out among competitors, it wants to square camera layout to be iconic to Huawei, so it’s likely we’ll see this on future Huawei phones .

this triple camera is made up of an 8 megapixel telephoto camera with F/2.4 aperture, a main 40 mega pixel wide camera with a brighter F/1.8 aperture and a new ultra wide 20 megapixel camera .

unlike the Huawei P20 Pro triple camera while we did away with the monochrome sensor in favor of the new ultra wide camera, you can still shoot with a monochrome mode but it isn’t a native monochrome camera anymore .

with this new camera square there are a few new features in the camera for starters there are now 4 shooting modes, aside from 1x, 3x and 5x zoom there’s now a 0.6 X wide camera to shoot . Read More : Huawei Mate X

with this makes things interesting because LG is no longer the only OEM to push the wide-angle camera, thanks to the HiSilicon Kirin 980 (7 nm) new dual NPU the Huawei Mate 20 Pro .

can analyze video in real time, here’s one of the more interesting video filters called color AI, it keeps people in color and leaves everything else in monochrome .

the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will ship with Android Pi out of the box, which means it’ll be running emui 9.0, huawei’s built-in apps are also seeing updated navigation menus along the bottom of the screen to make them easier to reach .

Huawei has cleaned up the general interface and the Settings panel has been simplified by putting advanced tabs in more categories, so you’ll see generally less clutter in the settings .

Huawei sure can now due to new things wirelessly, share files with at PC and print documents, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro supports wireless display as well, so it can now stream a second display Huawei use the main one to control it . Read More : Huawei Mate 9

there’s also the new digital Balance app and this is Huawei’s in-house app for monitoring screen usage and setting time limits for apps .

the company even announced a new Huawei watch GT, it’s actually not a wear OS device but it uses huawei’s own light OS and runs its in-house dual chip solution, it switches between a low and high powered ship, so the high powered ship is only used when actively performing tasks .

so Huawei has done a lot with the mate series and I’m really excited to get better acquainted with it, I’m stoked to check out its new triple camera with the ultra wide-angle lens and I’m also very curious to see how much battery life we can get out of this phone when it’s 4000 mAh battery .

and props to allow it for making a sporty wat super charger for it, I’m also excited to check out the Huawei watch GT so where OS has taken a backseat in the past couple of years and only now as Google started to ramp up its development.

but Huawei has decided that the best way to push forward is to come up with its own operating system and its own chipset platform for the Huawei watch . Read More : Huawei Mate 10

wearables are definitely making a comeback, so please let us know what you think of the huawei mate 20 pro and the watch GT in the comments below .
