Is it worth to get the Huawei Mate 20 Pro in Singapore?

29 October 2018 | Jillian Cheong

Huawei has risen to the top as one of the best smartphone brands, not only in Asia but the rest of the world. With its competitors releasing brand new phones in October, the Chinese brand doesn’t fall behind thanks to their brand new flagship - the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Recently unveiled to the public last October 16, the Mate 20 Pro may just be one of the best phones of 2018. If you’ve been dying for an upgrade, this might just be the phone you’re looking for.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Design

Today, more and more brands are adapting to “trends” currently set by big brands like Apple as well as Samsung. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro design, on the other hand, is sort of a combination of the two. The Mate 20 Pro has an “edge” like screen which is attributed to many current Samsung S and Note series, with a wide notch - a trend set by the current iPhones. It has a power button on the right side along with the volume controls with the sim tray at the bottom next to the USB-C jack which means it won’t have a standard 3.5mm one. Although it is a big disappointment, more and more phones are adapting to this trend so you’ll probably see more models without headphone jacks in the future.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Camera

Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is its camera. Although it is not the first phone to have a triple-lens, the brand’s success with the Huawei P20 Pro is clearly evident on this phone. Continuing their partnership with Leica, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro features a triple-lens camera system with 40MP+20MP+8MP sensors. As with the Huawei P20 Pro, the Mate 20 Pro also shows great performance in low-light conditions. While these are pretty impressive numbers, what makes this phone different from the Huawei P20 Pro is its use of artificial intelligence to capture photos.

The phone will be able to tell you the best settings for a particular photo as well as determine the subject of your photo. Furthermore, it would also allow you to translate text on camera as well as provide shopping recommendations to users. There’s also a bonus camera feature that would help you count calories on the food you’re trying to capture. Besides that, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has also upgraded their beautifying effect and also included a face unlock similar to other flagship phones in the market.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Internal Specs

Under the hood, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro features a largely upgraded processor - the Kirin 980. It is said to be one of the most advanced processors as it is not only fast but ultra high-performing. While the Huawei Mate 10 Pro offers 4GB or 6GB RAM, along with either 64GB or 128GB of storage, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro only offers 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. Nevertheless, it is expandable up to 256GB with a nano memory card. Do expect a longer battery-life on the phone thanks to the 4,200mAH battery. There are various ways you can charge up your phone as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro offers wireless charging support as well as the 40W Super Charge 2.0, which is able to charge the phone to 70% within 30 minutes.

Verdict
