March saw the release of the Huawei P20 phone. The latest device boasts an incredible 3 cameras and has been labelled as one of the best Android phones.
Like with most phone’s there’s a larger and smaller version of each device being released. It seems Huawei has decided to create a huge difference between the devices to really justify the price. The pro features a number of upgrades including three cameras in comparison to two in most phones.
The new device also comes in a range of colours; black, midnight blue, champagne and gold with the addition of twilight and pink gold for the P20.
While other Android phones on the market have begun moving the fingerprint sensor to the back of the device, Huawei has decided to keep theirs at the front.
With over 800 million users on Instagram, it’s no surprise the latest phone is packed full of features related to photography…
The P20 Pro has 3 camera sensors featuring a 40-megapixel lens, 20-megapixels and 8-megapixels. These are all designed to help you zoom, take stunning portrait photos and shoot super slow-motion videos.
Think that’s smart? The camera automatically detects objects and scenes to adjust its settings; this means you can take perfect selfies or holiday photos with just a point and click.
If you’re not willing to splash out on the P20 Pro, the P20 is a little more modest with its 2 cameras.
The only negative we can see about the devices are the incredible features seen on the P20 Pro aren’t available on the standard device. Unfortunately, if you’re looking to ditch a bulky camera and replace it with this device; you’ll have to get used to a larger phone screen. The features seen on the P20 are only available with the larger of the two devices, so if you’re used to the 5.8-inch screen it’s something you will have to adjust to.
Phone screens have come a long way in recent years and it feels like something that’s purely down to personal preference. Samsung users are notorious for loving the vivid colour which causes photos to look like they have been through Photoshop; while iPhone users prefer a more natural look.
The P20 features an LCD screen while the P20 Pro has an OLED screen; the only major difference you’ll notice is the contrast in black levels.
Overall we love this device, especially the camera features on the pro. If you’re looking to swap to an Android device but don’t want to spend a fortune the P20 Pro is £799.00 while the P20 is a very reasonable £599.00
If you’re considering upgrading your phone, don’t forget you can sell your old mobile to cash in your gadgets.
