Huawei P20 Display and Design:

Overall, Huawei P20 smartphone looks a lot different than its predecessor with minimum bezels above and below the edge-to-edge display along with a home button in the bottom bezel. While there’s a camera with dual lenses around the back. Likewise all other top flagships, Huawei P20 phone has a glass back and a metal frame.

As far as the display is concerned, Huawei P20 mobile phone is offering 5.7-inch large TFT IPS display with FHD+ resolution. The P20 mobile phone has lots of options for customising the screen display according to your wish. You can initialise ‘natural tone’ that controls color temperature while sensing your environment; toggle between vivid and normal color; choose default, cold or warm colors; turn on the ‘Eye Comfort mode’, and more.

The 18.7:9 aspect ratio offers a tall display, unlike many other phones, with the widest space for content no matter you have the notch ON or OFF. You will get, however, that you require switching some apps by self into ‘fullscreen mode’ at first, as they’re not always manufactured for such a long display.

Huawei P20 RAM and Storage:

When it comes to the RAM, P20 comes with 4GB of RAM, but we were expecting more than this. However, it is good enough to perform multiple tasks at a good pace as well as watching videos. If you need more for extra-smooth and fast multi-media and gaming experience, you should opt for Pro version with 6GB of extended RAM.

Huawei P20 comes with two memory options: 64GB and 128GB. If you want to purchase Huawei P20 128GB mobile phone, you will have to spend more money than Huawei P20 64GB version.

Huawei P20 Camera:

The most prominent selling point of this phone is related to its AI-enabled dual primary camera for providing fantastic photography. The Huawei P20 is loaded with a dual-lens (20MP+12MP) Leica optics camera setup with 2x lossless zoom.

The P20 offers two Leica Summilux lenses on the rear side of the device, as well as an NPU on the Kirin chipset, which delivers the AI utility to the mobile camera app. The manufacturer claims the AI function of the camera will assist you to become a better and efficient photographer while giving suggestions and auto mode-switching.

The P20’s camera also consists of improved low light properties, including an AI-infused version of ‘Super Night Mode’ which is quite efficient in providing amazing night shots without even tripod.

When you come to its front, there is also a large Selfie camera with 24MP lens, which is really the biggest upgrade over the 8MP of Huawei P10’s smartphone device.

Final Words:

Although Huawei P20 doesn’t offer a headphone jack and wireless charging. And you may feel uncomfortable while using it underwater as the device is not water resistant. But still, it is a super-stylish glass packed handset with enough features that you see inside a more than average smartphone. The camera is outstanding with AI features, and you will also get enough stamina in the battery to use it all day long. However, if you need the much better version with up-to-date specs that you see on 2018’s flagships, it’s better to go for its bigger brother, the P20 Pro.
