25 March 2019
With so many leaks we hardly expect a surprise from the launch in Paris.

"According to a leaked specs sheet, the Pro variant will sport a 40 MP f/1.6 main shooter.."

Actually the Pro variant has a New 38MP sensor (Sony IMX607) that has Triple Native ISO.

I think 3D face scanner will be my main feature of my next phone as it have gone quicker than 3.5 audio jack.

VectorR, 26 Mar 2019Yes, you're absolutely right. Everyone is different and... the s... moremaybe... personally i never really prefer apple. gave it try with their x way back then. truth be told, was never comfortable with the experience. i dunno for others but its seems so basic/boring to me. so far the only phones that quite matches my preferences are the ones from samsung and huawei. quite possibly because i also find stock android on pixel and any phone that has stock android a bit dull and boring for my taste. but i dunno for others, what do you think?

So it's basically isolated to Huawei with wide notches like Mate 20 Pro. I won't expect that Huawei will fix it. Just because they don't know how and don't really want to. EMUI is generally an iOS copy. There is no notification system in iOS, you know. I'll try your solution before I sold the phone, thanks.

Everyone loves ...Apple and iPhones, including me who used to have iPhone for a very short time a long time ago. :)

VectorR, 26 Mar 2019I quite like Chinese phone makers but I think they should try ha... more1. Weird about notification issues. I've been using EMUI 5, 8 & now 9 with zero problems. Maybe its a factory settings depends on some countries, but i know theres a way to fix it in settings. Agree about AOD, its so basic and limited. Launcher i'm using Lawnchair V2, with working Google Feed & no bugs glitches on multitasking, & its automatically disable HiSearch, love it. There are various reports that eventhough Pixel 3 using stock android & SD845, its slowdown phones overtime while my old Honor 8 Pro EMUI as fast as day 1 until today.
2. Camera are the best part of the phone. Normal, Wide angle, Super macro, telephoto all are there. While the processing is not as natural as Pixel, its got that Leica dramatic style photography (compare to Leiqa Q & Q2, image processing are identical as Huawei). Yes some blurry image cause by the non existing OIS, plus image stacking are used. In some situation, theres a word 'sharpening the image, hold steady....', u have to hold it about 1-1.5 seconds until the words gone to get clear image (image stacking at work). And no Samsung phones can touch low light quality as Huawei does. I find that Night Mode are better than Night Sight (overbright too much, greens looks unnatural) anddd Bright Sight is a disaster.
3. Agree & agree.
4. U should know it before buying.
5. Agree.
6. It packs with many things, i dont have any complains.

Be it or not, Mate 20 Pro are way cheaper than S10+ in my country, and still a flagship worthy experience.

Dominique, 26 Mar 2019What's your phone before the Mate 20 PRO? If you have not so goo... moreI had Pixel 3 on hands just before I've got Mate 20 Pro. Prior that I had Pixel 2 XL and S9+. I'm waiting for P30 Pro because I'm an optimist. Always hope for better :). And yes, I've put my Mate 20 Pro on sale. It definitely hugely overpriced compared to my "oldie" Pixel 3. The last one worth an every cent I spent on it. I just wish it had a macro and real zoom camera as well... And didn't "play with shadows" too much - didn't had a tendency of taking darker images, exaggerating / crushing shadows and muting colors a bit. Cheers

Try to get this white colour for the video hands on gsm, I want to see this colour!

I know heaps of people who tried to switch from Apple to Android with no success. It must be a reason for that whatever you like it or not :). And... that's how I get new phones (nearly new) much cheaper than their retail price. Just looking for "switchers" :). Huawei P30 Pro won't be different for me. I'll just wait a bit and buy it $300 - $400 cheaper than it costs form the "switchers". They're always keen to get rid of their Android phones ASAP :).

Martin, 25 Mar 2019Extreme ugly Ultra wide, LG V40 destroy camera sh*t!!LOL your LG V40 won't even win a battle with a 2012 Galaxy, so shut!!!

realitychecker, 26 Mar 2019i dunno bout that but here in our country, huawei is way cheaper... moreThat's interesting. Different price policies in different countries. But the thing is that Huawei isn't any better than Samsung or Apple. Feel free to check my Mate 20 Pro complains list few posts below. And the funny thing is that I'm working in the office with mostly Chinese and few Indians people. Everyone except one Chinese guy use iPhones. I asked my Chinese colleagues: "Why Apple, not Huawei?" They said: "Because Apple is better in every way". That's it. End of story. And no patriotic feelings at all :).
