Design

Huawei P20

Now, the design itself. The Huawei P20 is a big step-up in terms of design. The P9 and P10 looks pretty much similar in some aspects – but the P20 takes a big leap compared to before. It looks familiar, yes.

Even though with this high screen to body ratio, Huawei retained the fingerprint scanner in front – which I personally prefer it to be at the back. The fingerprint scanner is squished at the bottom and it’s quite difficult to reach for. However, thanks to Huawei’s NPU and new algorithms, this issue can actually be mitigated. More on this later.

A peek to see what camera we’re using here at Nasi Lemak Tech.

At the back of the Huawei P20, we can see the ultra-reflective glass back. I think many will find it nice to look at – myself included. Still waiting for that Twilight edition though. In whichever case, the Huawei P20 is difficult to maintain in terms of its aesthetics. The glass back is a fingerprint and dust magnet for sure. Slipperiness is another thing too, but getting a phone case will solve this issue.

As for the buttons, they’re all on the right side once again but now Huawei has removed the mesh texture on the power button and replaced it with a slit instead. Much more subtle in terms of aesthetics and feeling on the fingertip.

Left is the microphone, right is the speaker.

At the bottom we can see a symmetrical design here where the left side is for the microphone and the right side is the speaker. Unfortunately, Huawei still didn’t make the change to include stereo speakers.
