Why the Huawei P20 Pro Might Dethrone Apple and Samsung
Out of all the contenders in 2018, none are more promising than the Huawei P20 Pro. While the P10 turned heads in 2017, the P20 Pro is preparing to take the industry by storm. Armed with a massive battery and a 40 MP camera, this daring flagship aims to outdo both Apple and Samsung. On top of making users question their favorite brands, the P20 Pro is putting Huawei in the international spotlight. Despite failing to break into the American market, the future looks bright for Huawei.
Even though the Chinese brand has long been viewed as an iPhone knock off, this year they have reinvented themselves.

To showcase how far this company has come, we tested the P20 Pro for days. We realized that this phone may be the best smartphone release in 2018. Discover the reasoning behind these bold claims by diving into our in-depth review. Huawei is changing the game, so don’t miss out on this revolution!
Exploring the Huawei P20 Pro’s Capabilities
When examining the Huawei P20 Pro, it’s impossible not to be reminded of the iPhone X. Like Apple’s most expensive release, it boasts a gorgeous 6.1-inch OLED screen that stretches across the phone. The P20 Pro also has a glass back that sports a slew of interesting colors. All three of the back cameras create a small bump, which makes it hard to balance the phone on a flat surface. This complaint is minor, since the rest of the features are stunning.
While some may complain about the P20 Pro’s notches, they are responsible for great features. These key areas are home to a front facing fingerprint sensor and a 24MP camera. Both offer innovative ways to keep your information secure, since the front camera enables a Face Unlock option. While the finger print sensor is extremely sensitive, the Face Unlock option can analyze your face with the 24MP camera. This depth allows users to unlock their phones by glancing at it in any lighting condition. Even with dim lighting, the Face Unlock feature worked flawlessly for us.
Out of all the features on the P20 Pro, the cameras steals the show. Their 24MP selfie camera is backed up by three rear cameras. These comprise of a 40MP camera with a f/1.8 lens, 20MP f/1.6 monochrome camera and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto camera. In total that’s 92MP that are combined into a 10MP final shot. This impressive array of cameras outdoes what’s available on the Galaxy S9 and iPhone X. All this power is regulated by Master AI, which switches through filters according to what’s being shot.
On top of having an epic camera system, the battery on the P20 Pro is larger than life. While the competition has to conform with a 3,000 to 3,500mAh battery, the P20 Pro boasts a 4,000mAh battery. This allows users to go two days without charging on moderate usage. For solid on-screen time streaming video, the P20 Pro still lasts a whopping 18 hours. This is a blessing, since the P20 Pro doesn’t have wireless charging.
At the end of the day, Huawei went the extra mile with the P20 Pro. With 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, it easily competes against Apple’s and Samsung’s best offerings. After examining its superior camera system and massive battery, it’s clear that Huawei is an industry titan. This release will sweep all the major markets except America, so it will be exciting to see how the industry reacts.
