    About the Phone

    If you aren’t smitten with the elegant tear-drop designed screen of the Mate 20, then it is for the high-end performance that is worth buying the phone for. However, it also comes with a few shortcomings. Here’s a detailed list of the pros and the cons:

     

    Pros:

    • Superb battery life
    • Great performance
    • Fully featured camera
    • Enhanced viewing experience

     

    Cons:

    • No wireless charging
    • Not too secure facial recognition
    • Not water or dust resistant

     

    Overall, it can easily be said that the Huawei Mate 20 is a perfect choice for those who seek excellence in performance and design without being too much in the spotlight like its sibling – Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

     

    The Huawei Mate 20 comes with a sleek body design and having a dimension of 2244 x 1080 pixels in a 6.53 inches phone with a 2K curved OLED screen. It also features a

    40MP primary camera sensor and a 24MP front camera with Dual LED flash. This device comes with a 2.6 GHz; Octa-Core Processor clocked at 6GB RAM that makes the usability run at ease. The 4,000mAh Li-ion battery does its job seriously and provides a full day of battery life even after excessive usage.

     

    Saving the best for the last, this device is integrated with a beautiful teardrop notch in the front that adds just the perfect charm to this phone. With 381 pixel-per-inch density, the display comes out crisp and refined at the asking price of INR 55,167/-

    Having a dimension of 158.2 x 77.2 x 8.3 mm and weighing 188 grams, the Huawei Mate 20 comes in a super shiny glass rear and curvy edged screen that gathers a lot of attention. And of course, the teardrop notch beats its celebrity sibling (Huawei Mate 20 Pro) when it comes to the overall charm of the phone. The minimalist bezels and 88% screen to body ratio helps the phone to make the most of its display. While the face unlocks feature can get a little complicated and can be tweaked, the fingerprint scanner works pretty fast and accurate all the time. With the headphone jack placed right on the top of the phone, this phone comes with a standard USB-C port.

     

    The 6.53-inch stellar screen with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2244 pixels and AMOLED colours, makes it have that oomph in its viewing experience. The customizations are innumerable and can be adjusted according to your needs.

    The Mate 20 comes with an in-house Kirin 980 processor paired with 6GB of RAM and works as fast as a snap. From multitasking to gaming and waking up to notifications, everything ran smooth and sleek on this phone.

     

    This device comes with a set of 12MP + 16MP + 8MP cameras in the rear and 24MP selfie camera this can be used for many angles and views that make it a package of enhanced features and modes. To some, the entire array of cameras seem too much, but honestly, it isn’t anything lesser than telephoto lenses while delivering the same quality image clarity and colours.

    And if you don’t want to make such a fuss about all the predefined filters in this phone, you can always use the automated HDR in the Master AI setup to get some excellent output without having to do much about it. The front camera is excellent at taking selfies with some delightful productions, even in low light.

    The 4,000mAh non-removable battery comes with enhanced battery life and thanks to the Kirin processor; it absorbs lesser juice than otherwise required to keep the power long-lasting.

    Also, there are two main battery saving options where:

     

    • Either you can lower the phone’s current settings – like turning the GPS off and downgrading the display.
    • Or you can crank that Kirin 980 to the max limit for enhanced performance.

    In the end, it can be said that the Mate 20 provides some compelling features, outstanding performance, excellent battery life and a stunning display with some minor compromises that can almost be neglected. With such high bars set, this phone makes its presence felt even to the biggies like OnePlus 3T.
