Huawei P 20 in the test – performance & display

The Huawei P 20 is the little brother of P 20 Pro , costs around at the time of the test Euro less ( for price comparison ) and is, as far as the housing is concerned, a corner smaller . In terms of performance, Huawei's high-end newcomers of the year 2018 but little. Inside the P 20 the Kirin does – 970 – HiSilicon's chipset does its job. The eight CPU cores, four of which are designed for performance and four for energy-saving efficiency, clock at 2.4 GHz and are powered by a whopping 4 GB of RAM and a Mali-G 72 – GPU accompanied with twelve computing cores. The high performance potential, together with the slim EMUI surface based on Android 8.1, ensures buttery operation without any stutters or annoyances.

The mass storage device is included 128 GByte pretty much opulent, but cannot be expanded using a memory card. Furthermore, Huawei does not offer any memory variants. So if you need more space, for example for videos, photo archives or offline music, you have to retrofit via external storage medium or cloud service. Because the Huawei P 20 has a USB Type-C connection instead of micro USB, the now relatively inexpensive sticks are not a suitable option.

The 5.8-inch display extends almost over the entire front. Only the “Notch” already familiar from the iPhone X breaks through the display design and leaves space for the front camera, speakers and sensors. Information about the mobile network, WLAN and other notifications is usually displayed to the left and right of it. If you want, you can also have black bars loaded there to create a kind of artificial frame.

The technical data and measured values ​​of the IPS-LCD are strong. With a resolution of 1. 080 x 2. 244 pixels the device comes to a pixel density of 429 ppi (pixels per inch). The display brightness (without ambient light) of 445 Candela per square meter is good, but remains visible under top values, such as those achieved by the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus. In addition, the Huawei P 20 no recognizable weaknesses in our measurement results, which is why we attest the display with a very good rating at the time of the test.

Huawei P 20 in the test – camera & mobility

Apart from more or less big differences in equipment or display, the smartphone camera on the back has become one of the most important differentiating criteria in smooth Android -World has become – especially when you look at the high-end faction. The P 20 offers a dual camera on the back, consisting of a combination of 12 – Megapixel RGB Sensor and one 20 – Megapixel monochrome sensor. Theoretically, pictures with 20 Megapixels in the tip possible, however, very good lighting conditions are necessary for good picture quality. Huawei therefore sets the default setting to 12 Megapixels. We generally take our test recordings with the manufacturer's default settings and not with the maximum possible resolution. A double LED flash provides sufficient artificial light if necessary. In camcorder mode, the P 20 Videos with a maximum of 4K resolution. The setup is rounded off by a front camera with full 24 Megapixel maximum resolution. Our experts from the CHIP test laboratory rate the photos taken very well with the grade.

In the battery rating, the P 20 at the time of this test report “only” a good overall rating, however in relation to the other tested models of the smartphone leaderboard . Because the results obtained are very practical in themselves. The capacity of the not easily replaceable battery is 3. 500 mAh on average the direct Android competition. Our measurements show very good 10 hours of runtime in an online scenario, whereby we have a specially developed test page including integrated video all 90 Reload seconds. We use this to map a realistic and up-to-date web surfing scenario on a smartphone. It is also good that Huawei has the P 20 with a quick-charging power supply unit and the full charging time of the battery is therefore tolerable 2 hours. Since the P 20 also only 163 Weighing grams and praisingly slim at 9.1 millimeters, the mobility of this model is generally at a high level.

Note: This smartphone was after the new cell phone test procedure from September 2018 re-tested, the test report has been adjusted.
