The new Huawei P20 Pro

The new Huawei P20 Pro

The P20 Pro is making our life so much easier (and more Instagrammable!)

Like most people, I was a loyal iPhone user. I got one when they first came out years ago, and diligently got an upgrade as each new version was released. Like a cliché millennial sheep, I just upgraded and upgraded without much thought. iPhones were the best phones on the market (or so I believed), they were easy to use and I knew where I stood with them. I didn’t really give it much headspace beyond that. Sure they were expensive, but isn't that just what you pay for a high-spec phone? Well, not really as it turns out.

Recently I headed to Paris to hear about the new release from Huawei - the P20 Pro. Having not much interest in tech, and being obliviously content with my iPhone, I wasn’t expecting much. I was just happy to be strolling around Paris and not sitting in the office to be honest. But OH MY GOD was I wrong. 

The Camera

What got me first was the camera. Being that I mostly use my phone for Instagram, I was blown away by the technology. This level of camera just hasn't been used in a phone before. It's professional level quality, a Leica triple camera to be exact, and it fits in your hand. I honestly wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't tried it either. It took me a few days to get to grips with all the features but the difference in the quality of my pictures already is astounding. The screen is huge too, as it covers the entire front of the phone. 

I was a little worried about how user friendly the phone would be, having been so used to what I was using. But after the initial few hours it felt completely normal. And let's face it, the phone is just slick. It's so thin and just feels nice to hold. 

A new phone is always going to set you back a bit, but expect to pay a good chunk less for this phone than you would for something comparable from another brand. And yet it's a genuinely better phone. The stats don't lie, it is the most advanced phone currently on the market, scoring higher in every category it was measured in. So if you're in the market for a new phone and are ready for something news, check it out.
