When the Huawei P20 Pro was released, it caused a huge stir in the smartphone world. An unexpected release, this device broke all kinds of records - wowing with its insanely high-spec camera offering.
Paired with an ultra-modern design and great specs, it's a fantastic all-rounder too. With Android Oreo also on board, it's pretty much impossible not to love this device on first use. Efficient, speedy, powerful, intelligent and built with the latest technology, Huawei really has knocked it out of the park with the P20 Pro.
P20 Pro Key Features.
Inside and out, the Huawei P20 Pro impresses. The sleek design has been crafted from a durable metal frame that's encased with a glass front and back, and the 6.1-inch OLED FullView HD+ screen is vivid, bright and crystal clear in any light.
You'll find a fingerprint scanner for added security too, while under the hood there's an octa-core processor to ensure a smooth performance. A powerful phone needs a resilient battery too, so Huawei has added a 4,00 mAh battery to the device which can deliver up to 25 hours of talk time with just one charge.
P20 Pro Camera.
The key talking point of the Huawei P20 Pro is the camera. Ranked as the highest rated smartphone camera by DxOMark (the industry standard for image quality), it's safe to say any budding photographer will absolutely love this phone.
On the rear, you'll find a whopping triple-lens camera fuelled by artificial intelligence. Combined, the 40MP RGB sensor, 20MP monochrome sensor and 8MP telephoto lens produce some seriously clear shots - no matter what environment you find yourself in. As for selfies, you'll be working with a huge 24MP. Capturing your good side has never been easier.

Next, open up Menu, tap Settings and select Backup. Once finished, sign in to your Google account on the Huawei P20 Pro and all your files will be ready and waiting for you in a few minutes.
Alternative models to the P20 Pro.
Did you know there are three devices in the Huawei P20 series? If the P20 Pro is out of your budget, or it its advanced features are something you don't need, why not consider the Huawei P20, or even the Huawei P20 Lite?
The P20 still has the same slick design with FullView HD+ technology, but the display is smaller at 5.8-inches. The selfie camera is identical to the P20 Pro too, but the rear camera is a dual-lens rather than a triple-lens. Still an amazing and highly rated camera in its own right, you can expect outstanding results from the 12MP RGB Sensor and 20MP monochrome sensor.
The P20 Lite, meanwhile, is even more purse friendly. Impressively, it uses the same design and 5.8 FullView HD+ display as its bigger brother the P20, and it enjoys a hefty 4GB of RAM. Battery-wise, expect a good 30 hours of talk time, and when it comes to the camera you'll be able to shoot pictures in 16MP - great if you love the design of the P20 Pro, but you're not so fussed about the insanely high-tech shooter.
