Review of the compact flagship Huawei P20

Not so long ago, we published a detailed review of Huawei P20 Pro, the flagship smartphone of the Chinese company, on our website. The main emphasis in this model was placed on cameras, since for the first time in the mobile industry a device with three main cameras went on mass sale.

Today we will talk about P20 - a simplified version of the older model P20 Pro. In short, the mini-flagship has lost two stereo speakers, IP67 protection and an additional third camera. The difference in price was exactly 10,000 rubles, that is, Huawei P20 is sold for 45,000 rubles.

The new Huawei P20 will appeal to those who choose a top Android device with a high-quality dual camera and relatively compact dimensions.

Design, dimensions, controls

In previous reviews of Huawei devices, I have already said that smartphones are very similar to each other: that Honor 10, that Huawei P20, that Huawei P20 Lite have Free classifieds in Muleba same design. Yes, there are differences, of course, but they are minimal.

Huawei P20

From the front side, the phone looks typical of almost any Android device. On the reverse, it kind of resembles the Apple iPhone X in a dark color: a glass surface, the location of the cameras, the shape of the body and smoothed corners around the perimeter. By the way, tactilely the same sensations.

There are three colors for the P20: black, blue and pink. I prefer the blue device, because there are not so many bright colors on our market. Black is unisex, and pink is closer to the weaker half of humanity.

Huawei P20 measures 149x70x7.65 mm and weighs 165 grams. Compared to the P20 Pro, it measures 155x73x7.8mm and weighs 180 grams. The second one feels more cumbersome. This is due not only to the increased weight, but also to the shape of the back cover: it is more sloping, and it seems that the case is thick. And in the "twenty" the panel is flat.

In general, using the Huawei P20 is much more convenient than the P20 Pro and even the Apple iPhone X, which is also kind of plump and massive.

The front and back sides are glass, the frame is made of metal. I managed to “plant” a deep scratch on the P20 Pro in a couple of weeks, although I used the phone very carefully. I think the same will be taken into account for the case and the younger version. The transition from the glass on the frontal plane to the metal side is smooth, it’s nice to make swipe actions.

There is an oleophobic coating, the quality is good: the finger slides easily, the prints are removed without difficulty. On the reverse side, the “oleophobic” is of poor quality: prints are visible better, and are difficult to remove. In the hand, the body feels a bit slippery. As always, everything is decided by installing a cover or bumper. As far as I know, a large number of accessories have been released for the new P series.

As in the case of the P20 Pro, in the upper part (in the “monobrow”) they placed an indicator of missed events (a tiny LED), light and proximity sensors, a camera and a speaker. It is very loud, bassist, the interlocutor can be heard clearly and legibly.

Under the display, Huawei decided to install an elongated fingerprint scanner. Recognition accuracy is high. By the way, the scanner works even if your hands are wet. In extreme cases, there is face recognition (from 20 to 150 cm). Works faster than iPhone X, but can't see you in the dark.

At the bottom are: a microphone, USB Type-C and a speakerphone. Unfortunately, unlike the P20 Pro, there is no pairing of two speakers for stereo sound transmission.

The power button with a red insert and the volume rocker key (metal, thin) are on the right, and on the left are a sled (with a rubber seal) for two nano SIM cards. There is a second microphone on the top end. The older model still has an IR transmitter.

On the reverse side, on the left, there is a module with two lenses. It protrudes above the body by a couple of millimeters. A little lower is a laser focusing system and a dual two-tone LED flash.
