Huawei P20 Pro review: hiding SLR in mobile phone

ByDarell Cummings 2020-01-07 959

Before the release of the HUAWEI P20 Pro, it seems that no one will believe that Chinese mobile phones will be at the top of the DxO list. However, HUAWEI P20 Pro did it, taking the top spot while completely changing the way people play in the field of mobile photography. Finally, Huawei became the one who set the rules.

As the new flagship of the 2018 P-Series, the HUAWEI P20 Pro has undoubtedly brought unimaginable performance. So what is the charm of this product? I think it can be summed up by two characteristics-the unique photography and the stunning design.

Outstanding camera performance

Today's society is becoming more and more impetuous, the communication between people has shifted from face-to-face to screen-to-screen, the small mobile phone screen carries the joys and sorrows of countless people, and photos, as the best way to express their emotions, are also popular.

In terms of hardware parameters, the three-lens design of 40 million pixel color + 20 million pixel black and white + 8 million pixel telephoto, together with a large f/1.8+f/1.6+f/2.4 aperture, presents a unique top configuration combination. It must be mentioned that the HUAWEI P20 Pro is also the only phone on the market that achieves a 1.7inch image sensor.

In addition, the HUAWEI P20 Pro benefits from its large area sensor, with a maximum sensitivity of ISO 102400! This also means that in the same environment, the HUAWEI P20 Pro can take photos with less noise and higher brightness, even in the face of the former iPhone X. this advantage is still extremely obvious.



When the HUAWEI P20 Pro does not turn on the night view mode, the advantage of the outsole has been shown. The clearer picture visible to the naked eye and the color that can please the eyeball make the main body of the picture look more advanced.

In the face of strong background light, the HUAWEI P20 Pro is superior in picture performance because of its high sensitivity.



When shooting in a pure dark light environment, in order to expose the words of the main body of the foreground, the focus is set on the light source, and the surroundings are completely darkened. In contrast, when the HUAWEI P20 Pro turns on the night scene mode, not only the front and rear scenes can be highlighted and evenly exposed, but even close-up shots that are invisible to the naked eye can also be clearly seen.



The most common urban night scene is the environment with uniform light and moderate brightness, at this time, there is no need for super night scene mode, the color adjustment advantage of HUAWEI P20 Pro is still prominent incisively and vividly. For example, in the picture below, there is plenty of light, and there is not much difference in the exposure quality between the two phones. If you take a closer look, HUAWEI P20 Pro is still dominant in dim light detail retention, but this does not affect the performance of iPhone X. But in contrast to the color level, the "virtue" jointly trained by HUAWEI P20 series mobile phones and Leica is coming, full of "oil painting" texture.



The above sample is a comparison between HUAWEI P20 Pro and iPhone X in the same scene at the same time. It is obvious that the effect of the two films is quite different in terms of picture performance. In normal times, thanks to Kirin 970 and AI technology, the HUAWEI P20 Pro can automatically recognize 19 shooting types and up to 500 scenes, and the camera can intelligently select and recommend the most suitable shooting mode according to the scene.

Stylish design

In addition to taking pictures, the amazing design is also an attractive capital for the HUAWEI P20 Pro. .

As a senior editor who has handled hundreds of models, he was attracted by the streamer on his back as soon as he got the HUAWEI P20 Pro.


The word "design" is not only reflected in color matching, the three-camera lens and two-color temperature flash are arranged vertically on the left side of the back, while the LEICA/ lens parameters and Huawei logo also extend downward in this way.


The 6.1in OLED screen and the 2240x1080 resolution are particularly outstanding in terms of look and feel. The newly added natural color display function in the system can intelligently adjust the screen color according to the ambient light to maintain consistency, ensuring the user's experience of reading for a long time.


The process is often reflected in the details, the connection between the four-curved glass and the metal frame is very fine, in addition, the width of the whole machine is not different, there is no ash accumulation and no stabbing, these three items are enough to reflect the quality of HUAWEI P20 Pro.


The bottom entity Home key combined with tapping back, long pressing back to the desktop, and swiping left and right to activate multitasking control will greatly reduce the cost of learning / adaptation, and the vibration feedback in place also gives me the feel of some permissible pressing entity buttons.

Bottom line

All in all, the HUAWEI P20 Pro is almost perfect, and it's almost unmistakable whether it's designed or photographed.
