Huawei Mate 20 Pro Review – Best Of The Best?

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Review – Best Of The Best?

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro was announced back in October and it’s a beast of a phone. This device has more features than you can shake a stick at, but some of the most notable things include triple rear cameras, big 4,200 mAh battery, reverse wireless charging, in-display fingerprint scanner, 40W Super Charge, and so much more. Our friends at Pocketnow published their full 12-minute review video, which you can watch below.

The Mate 20 Pro is one of the most impressive devices we’ve seen in 2018. If you don’t mind Huawei’s EMUI skin, which some people don’t like, this is an excellent phone. It’s not cheap, as you would expect from that spec sheet, but if you want everything a phone can offer, the Mate 20 Pro is your device. Check out the full spec chart below (next to the Mate 20 specs).
