Our Huawei Mate 20 Review

After the staggering success of the P20 Pro, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has managed to hit it out of the park once again with the Mate 20. Streaming and gaming both look incredible thanks to that huge 6.53-inch display, a first-rate camera is capable of capturing all kinds of high-quality images and performance is excellent.


The Mate 20’s sizeable 6.53-inch display boasts an impressive 88% screen-to-body ratio and a small, unobtrusive dewdrop notch, which rather than boxing in your content makes the whole experience feel much more immersive, meaning it’s the perfect device for anyone who enjoys lots of streaming or mobile gaming. 

A significantly cheaper price tag has resulted in the glossy OLED panel and Quad HD resolution of the P20 Pro being swapped out for LCD and Full HD+ but they still manage to pack quite a punch and ensure everything looks fantastically sharp with lovely rich colours. 


As with the P20 Pro, the Mate 20 comes equipped with three high-quality Leica branded rear camera lenses, the standard 12MP, ultrawide 16MP and telephoto at 8MP. It’s an incredibly versatile set-up, allowing you to take all kinds of amazing shots, from arty bokeh to richly detailed macros, that look wonderfully clean with barely any noise.

Huawei’s Master 2.0 camera AI is excellent too, capable of recognising a huge 1500 scenes and adjusting your settings accordingly with a high degree of accuracy. A dedicated Night mode effectively takes a five-second exposure shot to let in as much light as possible and real object recognition cleverly keeps fast moving subjects in crystal clear focus. 


The Mate 20 sports a tough all-glass body with an incredibly attractive high gloss finish that’s held together by a band of shiny aluminum. It’s quite a wide smartphone, 3.3mm wider than the P20 Pro at 8.3mm, but is a lot lighter than expected and not as thick as a lot of the competition so thankfully never feels too unwieldy or uncomfortable to hold. 

As the front is mostly taken up by that fantastic screen, a responsive fingerprint scanner sits instead on the device’s smoothly curved back just under the small camera bump. Unfortunately it’s only IP53 dust and splash resistant but does, unlike a lot of other devices these days, conveniently feature a headphone jack on the bottom. 


An octa-core Kirin 980 CPU and 6GB of RAM makes for a powerful combination, offering a top-of-the-range performance where load times are kept to an absolute minimum, opening and closing apps is blazingly fast and even the most graphically-intensive games barely ever stutter. 

Battery life on the Mate 20 is equally solid and after a standard day spent streaming music, sending emails and messaging on Whatsapp you should easily be left with quite a bit to spare. 


The Mate 20 runs Android 9 Pie with Huawei’s custom EMUI interface laid over the top. Although it’s quite a noticeable departure from stock Android, compared to previous iterations it possesses a much cleaner looking interface and is very intuitive to use. Big Android fans will also be happy to know that although it’s not included right out of the box, the app drawer can be added back in. 

As to be expected, it’ll arrive with a handful of average stock Huawei apps which most users will instantly dismiss for Google’s own set and although they do feel a bit gimmicky, the iPhone X-like gestures do work quite well enabling you to launch features like Google Assistance in a flash. 

How much is the Huawei Mate 20?

With a price tag of around £600, buying the Mate 20 outright is definitely an option if that’s what you’d prefer to do. But, for the majority of people the much more manageable cost and massive variety in the pay monthly contract will be the vastly attractive option. 

Huawei Mate 20: Our Verdict

The Huawei Mate 20 is an absolutely stunning device that ticks all the right boxes for the modern smartphone users. The 6.3-inch Full HD+ screen is nothing short of amazing, performance is blazingly fast and Huawei’s EMUI interface continues to improve, here feeling enjoyably slick and smooth to use. 

While the camera isn’t quite as good as the one on the P20 Pro, it’s still a truly fantastic snapper in its own right that produces some seriously impressive photos.
