The design

The phone boasts curved edges with a screen that is slick to the touch and has a front and rear glass panel in an aluminium frame.

The Mate Pro 20 also has a sure-grip back panel that still feels sleek but makes it harder to drop. The power button is located within reach, under the volume rocker.

The display

The display is short, bright and vivid and has a feature called Natural Tone mode, similar to Apple’s True Tone, to give “a paper-like viewing experience.”

The curved sides are similar to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7, which causes a slight distortion when a video is being watched in landscape mode.

The camera

The device has three rear cameras and one front-facing camera because the more, the better, right? The image sensors adds sharpness to your photos while still maintaining the detail.
The three rear cameras offer the option of ultra-wide which is the equivalent of a 16mm focal length, with a wide and telephoto to boot. The macro feature works well and distortion is eliminated during processing.

Battery

The battery goes on and on, and even two hours of constant gaming won’t drop more than 25 to 30 per cent. The  percentage hardly drops while the phone is in idle mode.

It could be said the Huawei took inspiration for the Mate 20 Pro from other manufacturers but has implemented the changes in such a way that it outclasses many of its rivals.
