Here we can see the P20’s main attraction – the new nearly-full screen display. The Huawei P20 comes with a 18.7:9 aspect ratio display with 5.8-inches diagonal. It has an LTPS IPS LCD display with 1080p resolution. With that aspect ratio, that means the screen is actually 2240×1080 in resolution.
First thing’s for sure – the color looks good on the P20. It’s not too vivid and definitely creates pleasing colors for the eyes. That’s because even though the white balance is slightly to the warm side. It’s great for everyday use.
However, as for the brightness, I can say for sure that it’s a bit too bright. Yes, the adjustment range is very huge here but the auto brightness option is a bit too aggressive. Make sure you set the brightness offset to prevent sudden light attack.
Though, with this display, I do realize that there are some software issues with buttons at the center. Take Instagram for example where there’s an auto-tune button around where the notch it. For some reason, the button didn’t reposition itself and the notch just ate away part of the button.
However, the notch can be “hidden” by having the entire strip at the top to become black. That way, the buttons can be shifted downwards.
