Here comes the major flagship smartphone from Huawei – the P20. It was launched at Paris at the end of March, and was launched in Malaysian market about a week after that. And a few days after, we actually got a hold of the brand new Huawei P20.
With Huawei’s brand new hardware and especially the AI camera, can the Huawei P20 actually stand out from what it can already do before? Let’s find out in this in-depth review where we take a look at everything from the box, the P20’s design, all the way till its camera and even battery charging and discharging curves.
Let’s start off with the unboxing here. The P20’s box is a lot more understated compared to its predecessor’s packaging. The new one just has a lid which slides open from the top and reveals the phone itself. Behind the box, there’s absolutely nothing.
The Huawei P20 comes with a screen protector pre-installed like its predecessor, by the way. That red tab only removes the protective film that protects the screen protector (if that makes sense), so make sure you don’t rip both of them apart.
Underneath the Huawei P20 is a pedestal made out of recyclable material – very eco-friendly. From my guess, even the cardboard box that holds the accessories and documentations are made out of recycled paper.
In terms of accessories, the Huawei P20 comes with a Huawei SuperCharge charger, a USB-C cable with purple connectors like last time, a USB-C to 3.5mm audio jack converter, and a USB-C earphone. Remember – the Huawei P20 doesn’t have an audio jack, and I praise Huawei for including a converter in the box.
