Time to go Pro?
We’ve been waiting some time for Huawei’s P20 Pro to come along. This is a young upstart with the potential to waltz into the throne room Samsung and Apple have been squabbling over and turf them both out with glee – a properly exciting smartphone in almost every respect.
Get to know the P20 Pro and there’s no doubting it lives up to that ultra-high standard. Why? Rather than aiming for parity with the status quo, this phone has the gumption to go one better – with a dazzling tinted glass design, a whopping great battery and that ridiculous triple-lens camera that’s been slapped on its backside. Yup, it might scream ‘gimmick’ louder than the bloke dressed as a ninja-clown at your local bingo hall’s wrestling night, but this phone is the real deal when it comes to photography.
Crucially, it’s also very good value indeed when bought on a contract, costing less than both the iphone X and the Galaxy S9 by quite some margin. If your latest upgrade is due any time soon, then getting the P20 Pro is almost a no-brainer. At the very least, there are going to be a few jealous faces turned your way once people catch on to just how good this thing is.
Considering Huawei’s previous phones have never come close to this calibre of finesse, we’d be lying if we said we foresaw this one pushing so hard for the top spot in our rankings. But we’ve rarely been so delighted to be proved wrong.
Huawei’s EMUI take on Android has a bad rep, but it’s fairly uncluttered here. Delve around in the settings menu and you’ll get things to your liking in no time.
