Huawei P20: a review of the flagship at the price of the average budget

Last spring, Huawei introduced its flagship line of three P20 smartphones, its Pro version, and

modification with Porsche design.Of course, the main attention was paid to the middle model, that is, the PRO version, since Porsche Design, with the same technical characteristics, cost incredible money, and the basic version did not have a triple main camera module, which was simply a novelty then. In the meantime, the P20 is officially presented on our market, and its price tag is very affordable - around 28 thousand rubles.


The color range of the P20 has five options,including Twilight or iridescent twilight. In our market, only blue and black are represented. The case of the device is made of metal and glass; the protective glass covers the whole case; on the front panel there is also a protective film. The control buttons on the standard ground, fingers all reach for. On the power button is visible red risk. But the main beauty of the front panel. A small recess at the top accommodates a 24-megapixel sensor camera, dynamic and all sensors. Below, cleanly, without a cut, the butt is even and straight, under the fingerprint scanner there is still an indentation. Integrated into the touch button, with home, back and last open function.


Screen diagonal 5.8 inches, IPS matrix has a resolution of 2244x1080. The technology of building pixels here is somewhat different from the standard IPS. Here is one extra subpixel of white color, designed to enhance the brightness of the image and the screen. At one time, for the first time such a panel was installed on Sony's Xperia P. Then there were problems with the picture, the color rendition was unnatural. Now this disease has won. But the brightness of the screen is simply amazing, even in direct sunlight, the picture on the display is not lost anywhere, everything is clearly visible. The viewing angles on such a panel are maximum, even black is very deep here, great for hiding the cut.


The manufacturer went to this line in the footstepsCupertino, who so differentiated models by seniority. The youngest received less camera modules. There is still one less. The main camera has two modules, one got a 12 megapixel sensor, and works with full color, an auxiliary module with a 20 megapixel sensor in monochrome gets more detail, adds sharpness and clarity. However, without an auxiliary module (closing with a finger) the difference in the quality of images is not so significant.

But the main innovation is the camera software and model.neural networks. The camera automatically recognizes the script, and sets the optimal parameters. This is a neural network, it needs to learn, so at first the work of AI is not impressive. Sometimes even in the bizarre bark of a tree he finds a human face and tries to make a portrait with a bokeh effect. In addition, automatic algorithms are too trying to change the quality of the picture, turn up the saturation and contrast. The picture is as if it were a cartoon on the AMOLED-matrix. Detailing is excellent, in general, it is one of the best cameras in the mobile segment.


The processor of the smartphone brand Kirin 970,He first appeared in Mate 10. In fact, for the flagship is somewhat ashamed to have last year's processor. It is necessary to somehow adapt, coordinate with their units, so that the new flagship will be with the new processor. Onboard 4 gigabytes of random access memory, the drive on 128 gigabytes. A good volume of the drive, since SD cards are not supported, the receiver contains only two SIM cards of the nano size. The performance of such a bundle is enough for all applications that exist today, you can play the heaviest mobile games with high settings, everything will be quickly and smoothly.


Autonomy provides a 3400 mAh battery, the results are very good. In the standard scenario, the smartphone lasts for two days, the video playback at maximum brightness eats up the charge in 10 hours.
