Huawei P20 Pro review

12 April 2018
Huawei was among the front-runners in the dual-camera race with the P9 and then the Mate 10, so who better to take things to the next level? The Huawei P20 Pro one-ups all current major players and comes with three cameras on its back, each unique in its own right.

Seems a bit pointless arguing over a 5 year old phone.
In any case, the OIS is disabled because the massive issues involved in combining images from 4 lenses was not feasible.

          AnonD-1042141, 22 Jun 2022It has OIS, learn to read and stop spreading misinformationYou should stop spreading misinformation. The P20 Pro did not have OIS according to Huawei. Back then, some journalists just expected that there would be OIS and didn't look at the official specifications. Ifixit only assumed that there is OIS hardware inside. It was speculated that it was disabled by Huawei, if there were really elements of OIS hardware. According to Huawei's official specifications, the main camera did not have OIS.

            Basti, 14 Jan 2022The main camera has OIS. No, that's wrong. The specs from gsmarena are wrong. Huawei's official specs did NOT mention OIS. It was the company ifixit who just assumed (! ! !) that the hardware contains OIS hardware. See

            "In the official Huawei specifications, only the tele-lens with 80mm equivalent focal length is listed as optically stabilized, while the RGB main camera and the the monochrome secondary unit rely on the Kirin chipset's neural processing unit for ensuring sharp images."

            "which makes us wonder if there are plans to activate this hardware via a firmware update at some point in the future."

            Ifixit: "Officially, only the little 8 MP telephoto cam gets hardware OIS"

            So, the P20 Pro main camera does not have OIS. Huawei even never confirmed that there are elements of OIS hardware inside.

                    The P20 Pro main camera didn't have OIS.

                      Been using it for over 2yrs and its still as fast as lightning and battery is still at 93% health after all the usage I have give this phone now that is special.
                      I am still waiting for the latest android up date which is arriving shortly am told, and then I am going to try and get another year or two out of it.
                      Well done Huawei.
