The Huawei P20 Plus features an AI Image Stabilization feature (AIS for short) for its main 40MP camera. This allows the camera to take long exposure shots (useful for low-light conditions) while still maintaining a sharp and details image without image blur.According to the official Huawei.com...

The Ultra Snapshot is such a fantastic feature. As an enthusiast photographer, I like to shoot a lot. However, it happens so many times with my iPhone that I lose a shot because it takes time until I swipe up and push the camera button, and then the app needs to load and then I need to press the...

Zero shutter lag

Zero shutter lag means that there is a minimal delay between the time you press the shutter button and until the image is captured. So less missing shots compared to laggy cameras (like my iPhone 5S).

Bokeh mode affects both front and rear areas

The P20 Pro has a bokeh mode that not just blurs the background, but also areas in front of the area of focus, which translates closer to a real DSLR bokeh effect.

4K video recording option

The Huawei P20 Pro can record videos at 4K UHD video resolution, great for those who have a 4K display and want to enjoy a high-quality viewing experience.

4D Predictive focus

The Huawei P20 Pro features 4D predictive focus which is designed to help the camera to predict the movement of moving subjects and therefore help to lock on them and make sure they are always in focus.

80mm telephoto lens great for portrait shots

The Huawei P20 Pro has a 80mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto zoom lens, which aside from being great for longer-distance shots, it's the perfect focal length for portrait photo framing.

Up to ISO 102400

Class-leading ISO sensitivity range, allowing the main camera to go up to ISO value of 102400, which is suitable when shooting in very dim conditions. So great for low light photography (but expect heavy noise)

The Huawei P20 comes with a 40MP main camera. Although the pixel count might seems too high, the good news is that this camera uses a large 1/1.7-inch sensor (some website provide a more accurate 1/7.3-inch specification). We don't get to see such a larger sensor on mobile phones every day. A...

This triple Leica camera is the key feature of this phone and what makes it so interesting. The Huawei P20 Pro features not less than three different cameras (Tri-lens camera). The first one is a 20MP monochrome camera with an f/1.6 aperture lens, a 40MP RGB-sensor (Bayer) wide-angle camera with an...

Way too many pixels for the selfie camera

I don't know what hides behind the decision going with 24MP front camera. With f/2.0 aperture it definitely going to suffer when shooting selfies in dim light. Who need 24MP selfies anyway?

Limited slo-mo video recording mode

The P20 Pro slow-motion video feature is awkward to use and also allow very short videos (0.2 second which stretches to 6 seconds of video). This limits the creative possibilities of course.

The Huawei P20 Pro comes with a 40-megapixel main camera. Although this camera is capable for using Huawei's "Pixel Fusion" (essentially 2x2 pixel binning) to result in 10MP high-quality low-light shots, when shooting at 40MP, the image quality in dim light won't be that good.The reason for it that...

Slow aperture lens for the tele-camera

The telephoto camera comes with a slow f/2.4 aperture lens. The good news is that the sensor has only 8MP resolution, but it also very small (1/4.4-inch).

Relatively slow F1.8 aperture compared to competition

The Huawei P20 Pro main rear camera has a 27mm f/1.8 aperture lens (35mm equivalent). An f1.8 lens is relatively slow compared to the competition , like f/1.5 of the new Galaxy S9.

The Huawei P20 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM, plenty of RAM to support heavy multi-tasking and its graphics performance.

Lots of internal storage

The Huawei P20 Pro comes with 128GB of internal storage space (ROM), which means plenty of space to store apps, images and videos.

OLED display for vivid colors and deep black

I personally prefer OLED over LCD for its very vivid color rendering and deep blacks, which is great when playing games or watching movies with your phone.

Notch can be disabled

The P20 Pro allows you to "disable" the ugly top notch by applying a dark black background to the upper part of the screen, so the top screen area blends with the notch itself.

Large 6.1-inch display for improved viewing experience

The Huawei P20 Pro comes with a huge 6.1-inch display which helps provide a great viewing experience when watching videos, playing mobile games, browsing the web, viewing images, etc.

Ugly top notch at the top of the screen

The top notch, although can be ""hidden", still makes the phone look less attractive from the front. Until companies will find ways to put all the sensors behind the screen.

The Huawei P20 Pro is waterproof, it's IP67 certified for water and dust. However, it's not as good as the Samsung Galaxy S9+ that carries a IP68 certification. IP67 means that it's dust tight the same as IP68, but the X7 means that it can only be submerged in water up to 1 meter, whether 7 rating...

Smaller top notch compared to iPhone X

The Huawei P20 Pro comes with a much smaller notch compared to the iPhone X. But this is also because it hosts less sensors, something to keep in mind.

Thick bottom bezel

The P20 Pro has relatively thick bottom bezels, at least if we compare it to phones like the Galaxy s9. Not a big deal though.

The Huawei P20 Pro lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack. I personally wish that it would featured one. I have nothing against the USB-C connector, but dropping the 3.5mm jack means that I need to buy a special adapter for it. It's not a huge issue, but it make things so much easier or people who already own...

Front fingerprint sensor

I prefer the front fingerprint sensor solution, because when my phone is on the table, unlike rear fingerprint sensor phones, I don't need to pick it up to unlock it, just put my finger on it.

Higher battery capacity compared to the S9+

The Galaxy S9+ comes with a 3500mAh battery, Huawei P20 Pro tops that with a 4000mAh battery, which means that the battery can last longer.
