ZDNet's Sandra Vogel recently published her full review of the Huawei P20 Pro[1], which I also have in hand and am using to test out its imaging prowess. Over the last week and a half I have also been using the Huawei P20[2] that offers much of the same as the P20 Pro for EUR250 less.

Apple usually perfects features and technology that is first seen in Android smartphones, but last year's iPhone X launched with a display that extended to all four edges of the front with a notch for sensors, a speaker, and the front-facing camera. In 2018, we are seeing Android manufacturers (and Google with Android P) embrace the notch. Huawei's new P20 and P20 Pro devices are some of the first to launch with the notch.

The P20 is the successor to the P10[3] with some design changes, including a glass back, removal of the 3.5mm headset jack and microSD card slot, and an expansive front display with a notch. It retains the lower front oblong fingerprint scanner, dual rear cameras with Leica branding, and more.
