    The Huawei P20 Pro is one of a growing number of mega-phones. We’re not talking about the speakers that protesters chant into, but very expensive phones that incorporate new tech, for those willing to pay big for it.

    Top rivals in this class include the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and iPhone X. Huawei may be the least powerful brand of the three, but the cost is lower too. 

    That said (and perhaps giving away the review verdict a little bit) the P20 Pro performs so well that it's given a pretty high spot in our best smartphone ranking. This isn't just a week into use - we have been using this phone for a month and are still seriously impressed.

    For the Huawei P20 Pro’s price you could only get a 64GB iPhone 8 Plus, not an iPhone X, although there are some quirks to the Huawei design and software to get used to in return. 

    However, the remarkable work done on the camera makes this the most versatile phone photo-shooter out there, regardless of price, whether you're a happy snapper or an amateur enthusiast photographer.

  • ARE NEW ZEALAND OR INTERNATIONAL MODELS DIFFERENT IN ANY WAY?

    International models are brand new, genuine products. You may notice very minor differences when compared with local models, however, all international models are supplied with an Australia/New Zealand compliant generic charger and are perfectly suited for use in Australia or New Zealand

     WHY CHOOSE DIRECT IMPORT?

    By cutting out all the middlemen, we’re often able to sell the world’s biggest and best brands (like Apple, Samsung and Huawei) for significantly cheaper than local retailers.

    WHY ARE PRICES SO LOW?

    Being an online-only retailer allows us to cut unnecessary costs and keep costs down. We’re able to bypass agents, importers, wholesalers and distributors that are usually part of the retail process. By cutting out these expensive middlemen, we can pass the savings onto you, where they belong! It also means that we avoid the many costs involved with running bricks and mortar stores, resulting in even more savings for you.

    WILL DELIVERY TAKE LONGER?

    In most cases, the delivery will be within 2 working days. However, for some models, it can take between 10-14 days. Please always feel free to check with the support team on delivery times if you are unsure.

    DO DIRECT IMPORT PRODUCTS COME WITH A WARRANTY?

     Of course! All of Callcom’s direct import products are backed by a 1 Year Standard Care Warranty for your total shopping confidence and peace of mind.

  •  Design

    ‘Shiny’ is the word that sums up the Huawei P20 Pro's design best. Yes, it’s big. Yes, it has a notch. But sheer reflective spangliness makes this phone stand out.

    It’s two big plates of rounded-off Gorilla Glass with a filling of metal finishing off its sides. This metal is aluminium, but it has a polished rather than anodized finish, and looks more like steel. Unlike the stainless steel iPhone X though, a month into using the P20 Pro, the frame is scratch free, boding well for the phone's durability.

    For the most part you’ll probably see the black and blue versions of the Huawei P20 Pro sold in the UK, but there's also the more eye-catching gradient version. Purple at the top turns smoothly to a greenish-turquoise at the bottom, the sort of finish you see more often on a supercar than a phone.

    This will be a bit of an audience-divider. If you find it a bit much, the other finishes are lower key. All are highly reflective, though. The Huawei P20 Pro is also a little prone to fingerprint smudges and the slightly raised camera housing picks up dust fairly quickly.

    The Huawei P20 Pro has a larger battery than its peers, but you can’t tell from its feel. This phone is actually slimmer and lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus at just 7.8mm thick.

    However, the Samsung does a slightly better job of appearing to be 'all screen' front-on, because the Huawei's screen does not curve around at the sides. Only the glass does, and just the last millimeter or so at that.

    The Huawei P20 Pro - along with the standard Huawei P20 - is also the first Huawei phone with a notch, the display cut-out made famous by the iPhone X. Apple’s excuse for the notch is it is required for all the tech used for the phone’s face unlock feature: a normal camera, an IR camera, a dot projector, proximity sensor and more.

    Huawei doesn’t have quite as good an excuse, as there’s just a high-res camera and speaker on the Huawei P20 Pro’s front. However, the notch is smaller. Notches may end up being a Crocs-grade "what were we thinking" move in hindsight, but they seem to be in fashion right now.

    Display

    Like most other high-end Huawei phones, the P20 Pro does not have the highest display resolution in its class. This is a 1080 x 2244 AMOLED screen.

    The numbers sound unusual, but this is really just a Full HD screen stretched out to an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. That’s right, it’s even 'wider' (or longer) than most other 18:9 screen phones.

    Pixel density of 408ppi isn’t even close to the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus’s 529ppi. The only time you’re likely to notice though is when using a phone-based VR headset. And if that fad isn’t dead, it is at least dormant.

    Okay, if you look close you can see slight evidence of the PenTile fizz that affects Samsung OLEDs that don’t have insane pixel density. This is caused by Samsung OLED’s pixels sharing sub-pixels, reducing perceived resolution a bit.

    The Huawei P20 Pro’s display quality is excellent though. Blacks are perfect, there’s minimal blue cast when the phone is tilted, which affects some less advanced OLED displays.

    You also have a choice of color profiles. Standard color looks a little more saturated than old industry standard sRGB, but offers a fairly natural, relaxed look. Vivid color deepens tones a little, with a slight subtlety trade-off.

    Like other Huawei phones, you can also tune the color temperature to your liking, although the default setting is pleasant.

    The Huawei P20 Pro also has a few more unusual tweaks. Its display can change the color temperature on the fly to suit ambient light conditions and the top part of the screen can be blacked out to completely hide the notch. This looks particularly neat as this little area can still be used for notification icons when blacked out.

    Also worth noting, the P20 Pro ships with a pre-fitted screen protector, giving it the best chance of avoiding scratches possible. That said, this plastic film does attract fingerprints pretty readily, so you may want to swap it for a tempered glass screen protector down the line.

    Processing power

    Under the hood the Honor 7C has a Snapdragon 450 octa-core chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage in the UK, although some countries will get a 4GB/64GB varaint.

    While the chipset is an entry-level offering, paired with the RAM there's enough power to keep things running. There is a slight lag when opening apps, but nothing we wouldn't expect from a phone in the 7C's price bracket.

    That power is tasked with running Android 8 Oreo - the latest version of Google's mobile operating system - although it's not the stock software.

    The Honor 7C comes with parent company Hauwei's EMUI interface overlay, which removes the app drawer and changes the theme of Android.

    While the interface may not be to everyone's taste, it allows Honor to add some additional features. 

    There's a gaming mode that can hide notifications and provides a small pop up for calls during game play, so not to ruin your flow, while synergy music allows you to sync up to nine handsets to play a song through all their speakers and karaoke mode lets you project your singing voice through the phone's speaker.

     

    Camera

    The dual rear facing cameras are one of the main attractions of the Honor 7C, with 13MP and 2MP sensors sitting side by side.

    The 2MP camera is in charge of capturing depth data for the Bokeh mode, allowing you to take photos with a blurred background, while your subject in the foreground is nicely in focus.

    We had a quick play with the camera on the Honor 7C and found it to be generally capable, although it's not going to blow you away with quality. The Bokeh mode worked reasonable well, but the overall image seemed to lack a little bit of definition.

    Round the front the 8MP camera is accompanied by Honor's smart soft light LED, allowing you to illuminate your selfies in low light.

    The LED has three levels of adjustment, allowing you choose just how illuminated you are. We didn't have a particularly dark environment during our hands on time with the phone to try this out, but we'll be sure to put the front and rear cameras to the test in our in-depth review.
