Short description Huawei P20

This is a smartphone on Android 8.1 Oreo with a very fast and productive processor, with a large touchscreen size, with a great camera that has 2 modules (12 MP Wide, 20 MP B/W), and the front camera here turned out to be very high quality, which can make beautiful selfies. And Huawei P20 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

In March 2018 was announced smartphone Huawei P20. It is located in the series Huawei P among many others smartphones Huawei.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Huawei P20 works on Android 8.1 Oreo, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2018. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Huawei P20, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Huawei P20 works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. It so happened that Huawei P20 does not have support for fifth-generation networks and cannot provide you with super-fast Internet at a speed of up to 100 Mb/s. If this is important for you, we recommend that you go to the catalog page, which contains all 5G-smartphones on Android.

Screen, body and battery

The case Huawei P20 has got interesting features: cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors.

The screen Huawei P20 is made using the LTPS IPS LCD technology, has a diagonal 5.8 inches. Such a large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 7.7 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 3 400 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 24 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment good cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got several modules (dual camera smartphones): 12 MP Wide + 20 MP B/W, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very good cameras. You can buy this smartphone. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone received 8-core processor HiSilicon Kirin 970. If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Huawei P20 received 4 GB of RAM.

Only one version of the built-in memory in the smartphone is on the market — 128 GB. .

Price for Huawei P20: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is not the model you are looking for. If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is exactly what you were looking for. Do not pass by Huawei P20, you should like it.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Huawei P20 will begin in April 2018 at a price of $850. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
