857

We have already given you the impressions and opinions of Huawei P20 Pro and the Huawei P20 Lite But what about the name of this family? We could also spend some time with the “middle of the Chichos”, as the song of Estopa said … and the truth is that if many times it is said that virtue is in the middle, our opinion of the Huawei P20 we already told you that although It’s a very interesting phone, it’s something decaffeinated.

And it is very difficult to make three phones of the same series and all three with an overwhelming personality. He Huawei P20 Pro has it and the P20 Lite also … but the Huawei P20, the one that carries the name “to dry” not so much. And the reason is not another that does not become neither one nor the other. We will explain throughout this report why we think this.

Characteristics of the Huawei P20

Design of the Huawei P20, sober, interesting but not exciting

And we are not going to stop comparing this terminal with its other two generation partners. He Huawei P20 is a very interesting terminal , not in vain offers 5.8 inches of FullHD + screen in a comfortable and ergonomic format for the hand. But here comes the first “but”, it does not have the AMOLED screen of the Huawei P20 Pro and repeat the display that we can also enjoy in the P20 Lite. It is clear that the Chinese brand wanted to differentiate the most complete mobile from its “twin”, but we must say that He did it better with Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro than with this generation of P20 Lite.

We are, therefore, with a design that traces the Huawei P20 Pro ahead, but behind, with the exception of the fingerprint sensor, would go through the P20 Lite if it were not because the camera can read clearly Leica. What’s more, repeat the colors of the Lite model (pink, blue and black) and does not benefit from the Twilight which remains as exclusive for the Pro model.

Do not misunderstand us, the design, we repeat, is very interesting. Sober, with soft lines and something more compact than the top model, but when we’re talking about 18: 9 screens , the truth, the difference between 6 and 5.8 inches is not so much noticed – and if enough that one has OLED and the other LCD -. By the way, it does not have IP67 resistance either, so if you enjoy the Pro model.

Camera Leica, again great features … but it’s not the triple

And is that if we said before that the P20 Pro has remained a color for him only, he also stays with the triple camera. The Huawei P20 is also really powerful … but it turns out that it’s going to be the same as we have seen in the Mate 10 . Very complete, interesting, also enhanced by the Kirin 970 and his AI.

You can not say anything that has not already been said about what is, according to DXoMark, one of the five best cameras of the moment in the world of smartphones. But is that the existence of the P20 Pro makes us stay with a bittersweet taste and think that there will be someone who does not step and take the other model to have the latter?

First level performance (as in the Huawei P20 Pro, Mate 10 …)

In that if we can say they are the same. As we just mentioned, the two phones have the Kirin 970, the processor with Artificial Intelligence that premiered the Mate 10, that without being a novelty, is all a portento. You will learn about the user’s habits and customs and, in addition, apply all this “intelligence” to help us take the best photos with the automatic mode, which most users use.

Conclusions and opinion: the Huawei P20 is good … but it is at a crossroads

Both the Huawei P20 Pro and the P20 Lite have enchanted us. We believe that it has many more successes and virtues than black spots, especially if we think that public are focused on each of them . However, we can not say that the Huawei P20 shines in such a way.

It is very difficult to draw a series with three products and that all three have the same personality. There is always one that is eclipsed by the other two . The Huawei P20 is “almost” a Huawei P20 Pro, but it steals the spotlight from above. And below, the Huawei P20 Lite is almost like the Huawei P20, with huge differences that if in processor and camera, but with a much better value for money.

He Huawei P20 is at a crossroads . If someone looks up you can think “why not spend a little more and have the best?” And if you look down because you do not want the Pro, “and why spend so much if the Lite is very similar but less? powerful? “We do not deny that he has his audience but, we believe that he will have a difficult time to stand out among the two titans he has as brothers.
