It’s no surprise that Huawei Mate 20 Pro is an excellent phone. In fact, I will go ahead and say it’s one of the best Android phones of 2018. But is it Rs.1,29,900 good? Well, let’s find out.
Like many of you, I too was hyped about the triple Leica camera design – a 40MP wide-angle lens, a 20MP ultra wide angle lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens. And on top of that, the phone comes with IP68 dust and water resistance. So, you don’t have to worry about taking pictures underwater.
Android Pie along with excellent hardware of the Mate 20 Pro is like a cherry on top of a cake. That’s not all, it houses an in-display fingerprint reader. It’s not as fast as the traditional optical fingerprint reader but still, it’s kind of new and works like intended. The phone is powered by Kirin 980 chipset- the world’s first 7nm process mobile phone SoC.
That’s not all “the first things” the company mentioned in the event. Let’s not get into that for now. Probably will have to save that one for the upcoming article. Let me know in the comment section below if you want an article on “The Kirin 980 chipset”.
One of the feature that is quite innovative is the reverse charging solution that allows charging other phones wirelessly. Inside the box, you receive a 40W charger that will charge the phone from 0 to 70% in just 30 minutes. And in terms of storage, you get a 6GB DDR4X RAM along with 128 GB storage. This simply means that you can take as many pictures and videos as you like. It’s a significant upgrade from the P20 20 PRO. Both the CPU and GPU performance is now faster than ever giving you an enriching experience.
The phone comes with a whopping 4200mAh non-removable battery that lasts a full day of usage for most of the users. If you are a hardcore PUBG fan, then this will be the best phone for you to buy. You can even choose a color that matches your style. Huawei offers Black, Twilight, Emerald Green, and Midnight blue. If you ask me I would prefer the Twilight. There’s something about that colour gradient shift that’s so much intriguing.
Apart from its mindblowing specs, the aesthetics of this device is also pretty good. We all were a big fan of the bluish purple gradient colour that came with the Huawei nova 3 and 3i. Trust me, I am not a big fan of the notch- it’s just not for me. It’s a tradeoff for the 3D face unlock. It would have been cool to see a true bezel-less design from Huawei. Maybe we will get to see that in the upcoming Huawei P30 Pro.
Personally, I think this phone would be a solid buy if it was priced somewhere around the ballpark of the Galaxy Note 9. However, as of now, it’s Rs. 20,000 more expensive than the Note 9. And mind you, the Note 9 goes neck on neck with this phone. As such, it’s kind of difficult to justify the price of this phone.
