Paying this much for a Huawei phone may seem a tough sell. But great battery life, top specs and some of the most compelling use of computational photography seen in a phone make the Huawei P20 Pro one of the most interesting handsets available.
As the Huawei P20 Pro shows, Huawei is no longer here to simply make up the numbers. It’s ready to go toe-to-toe with the very best in the smartphone world.
It doesn’t come cheap, but as the year has gone on its price has dropped, putting it below the most expensive flagships out there – the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and the iPhone XS (though it’s worth noting they’re more powerful too) – TechRadar.com
