Huawei Mate 20 review: Say hi to the ‘Dewdrop’ notch | Trusted Reviews

 

Huawei Mate 20 review, price, specs: Huawei's Mate 20 sits below the Mate 20 Pro, but offers a couple of different design ideas

Great performance ; Fully featured camera ; Tidy notched design

EMUI is a bit ugly ; Facial recognition isn’t secure ; Too many gimmicky camera modes

The Huawei Mate 20 offers lightning-fast performance and a comprehensive list of features, with a clever bill of compromises to help meet its £500 price tag. It’s a genuine OnePlus 6T rival.

Huawei Mate 20 X 5G review

 

Goodbye headphone jack, hello 5G

Big, immersive, quality display ; Great camera system ; Zippy performance

Will be too big for most ; Screen could be sharper ; 5G coverage is sparse (Aug 2019)

A niche phone just got more niche - but if you know you want 5G and the biggest screen in town, the Mate 20 X 5G won’t disappoint

Huawei Mate 20 review

 

Can a stripped-back flagship really capture enough of the real thing to stand out?

Flagship-grade performance ; Latest version of Android ; Capable, flexible cameras ; Actually has a headphone jack

Outshone by the Mate 20 Pro in almost every way ; Proprietary expandable memory format frustrating ; Limiting choice between models is anti-customer

The Mate 20 does a lot of what makes the Pro so great - but not enough. Unless you're unlucky enough to live somewhere Huawei has deemed the Mate 20 Pro to be off-limits, this isn't the version to buy.

Huawei Mate 20 initial review: Does bigger mean better?

 

The largest Mate 20 offers flagship specs with more conventional features than the Mate 20 Pro. Does it make best sense as the flagship phone to buy?

Triple rear camera arrangement arguably best capabilities on the market ; Huge battery capacity with fast-charge and Qi wireless charging ; Heaps of power on tap for a solid flagship experience

Square camera arrangement doesn't look great ; EMUI software still divides opinion ; Some AI camera features are overzealous or flawed ; We find it too wide in the hand

The standard Mate delivers a strong innings, but the Pro model outshines it in every department. When it comes to future-facing features the Pro is the way to go.

Huawei Mate 20 review

 

It's Mating season!

Excellent battery life ; Incredible power for the price ; Versatile stills and video camera

Full HD+ screen resolution is low ; IPS screen inferior to flagship AMOLEDs ; No IP68 water and dust resistance

The Huawei Mate 20 distills much of what makes the Mate 20 Pro an excellent phone into something that’s different, though not necessarily inferior. It costs less, offers more screen and has a headphone jack. If you crave the cutting-edge bells and...

Huawei Mate 20 Smartphone Review

 

Insider tip. The Huawei Mate 20 is largely identical to its 200-Euro (~$225) more expensive sibling, the Mate 20 Pro. Read on to find out whether the Mate 20 is worth the money and its differences from the Mate 20 Pro.

well-built ; accurate and fast location services ; LTE Cat.16 ; MIMO Wi-Fi ; 3.5 mm jack ; Android 9.0 Pie ; decent call quality ; dual VoLTE ; impressive triple rear-facing cameras ; bright IPS display ; flagship SoC ; long battery life ; quicker...

only IP53-certified ; no wireless charging ; no IR facial recognition ; PWM flicker ; nano-memory card instead of microSD card

The Huawei Mate 20 is a premium flagship just like its more-expensive sibling, the Mate 20 Pro. Huawei has equipped the Mate 20 with its Kirin 980 SoC, which makes the device as powerful as the Pro model. Moreover, the former’s lower resolution display...

Huawei Mate 20 X 5G review: Huawei Mate 20X 5G review: Is this the 5G phone you’ve been looking for?

 

A huge smartphone with a 7.2in display and 5G – impractical and also very expensive

Fast 5G connectivity ; Big screen is great for watching movies and gaming ; Top quality triple camera

Too big for most ; Far too pricey ; 5G coverage is patchy

If you’re still straining at the leash for some 5G action, however, I’d advise choosing the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G instead. It works out significantly cheaper, plus it’s a much more enticing phone overall.

Huawei Mate 20 review: Hands on with the bigger but less sophisticated Mate 20

 

Cut-down Mate 20 Pro gets a slightly under-specified triple camera but a bigger screen

But for canny internet buyers who may not be able to afford the Mate 20 Pro, the Mate 20 looks like it could provide a tempting, more affordable alternative. All we need now is for Huawei to change its mind and launch it officially in the UK.

Huawei Mate 20 Review

 

The Mate 20, Huawei's other, more affordable flagship, comes with the same fast, 7nm chip as the Pro version and has most of the tricks of its sibling…

Incredible, 2-day battery life ; Android’s most advanced 7nm chip ; Plentiful 128GB internal storage

Pricey for what it is ; LCD screen is not quite as great as some AMOLEDs ; Camera is just decent, not on par with the best ; Unclear future software update situation ; Gesture navigation is not perfectly polished ; Loudspeaker is too quiet
