Huawei Mate 20 Pro: A Small Exact

Huawei Mate 20 Pro: A Small Exact

Huawei Mate 20 Pro is a phone that is attracting a lot of attention because of two factors:

  • Its features
  • Its prices

Available from today, this phone is beating many others in most capacities (in the same price range).

Two things that stand out about Huawei’s new phone are its specs and camera.

What About Huawei Mate 20 Pro

One thing that stands out about the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is that it has 3 cameras at the back.

Each of these cameras has a different focal length to boast. The phone comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor just as the Vivo Nex.

Another feature of the new Mate 20 Pro is that it has a 3D face unlock feature that offers secure authentication. This feature is also found in the Oppo Find X and iPhone X.

What Else?

Furthermore, the phone also has a high-resolution display of 6.4 inches and an OLED screen. This bears similarity to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as well.

It seems like Huawei is trying to beat the Note 9 with its new phone. Huawei has also stressed that it has a better Android software on board than Samsung, offering 22% higher stability in gaming and more.

The company claims that it is also more power efficient (14% higher) than Note 9.

Wireless Charging And More

This is not it as the Mate 20 Pro also comes with fast wireless charging just like Samsung.

However, it also features reverse wireless charging compatible with Qi devices.

Confused what reverse charging is?

Well, with your Mate 20 Pro, you can charge (wirelessly) Note 9 or iPhone X/XS.

It is being said that the phone has a Hyper Optical Pattern that minimizes fingerprints. Also, it has a soft texture that allows easy grip.

The phone has a 4200 mAh battery. Height wise, it is the same as the Pixel 2 Xl.

You can still use the phone with one hand. It also has an IP68 rating for water/dust resistance. Therefore, the phone comes with an additional layer of protection.

The Mate 20 Pro has 7nm Kirin 980 processor. Furthermore, it will also have a faster LTE combined with a Cat.21 model that supports high speeds of 1.4Gbps. It also has the capacity of processing tons of AI.

You can start getting the Mate 20 Pro for €1,049 for the 6GB RAM and 128 GB Storage phone.

Face ID/Fingerprint Sensor, Camera And Details

Moreover, the Mate 20 Pro has Facial ID recognition, which is similar to the iPhone. Apart from that, it has also incorporated a fingerprint sensor.

The Mate 20 Pro comes with multiple cameras. It has gotten rid of the monochrome sensor and is using better sensors instead.

The company is now incorporating three different focal lengths and a 20 mp camera for better shots.

There is also a 40 MP camera for conventional wide angle plus an 8-megapixel camera for telephoto.

iPhone XR Review

Our Honest iPhone XR Review

Our Honest iPhone XR Review

Tech giant Apple revealed its latest products at the Apple event in September. One of the products it revealed was a ‘cheaper iPhone’, called the iPhone XR.

See:

The iPhone XR is a model Apple phone but it is cheap which makes it a catch.

However, if you are going to buy the phone or considering it, you might want to know what it has to offer.

Today, I am going to make it easy for you to decide whether you want to go with the phone or not in this Closest to Real iPhone XR Review.

iPhone XR : Review-digital trends

Price

The unique selling point of the iPhone XR is that it is available for $749 or £749. It is priced at $1229 (Australian dollars), the 64 GB model. For the 128 GB model, users will have to pay $799 or £799. Lastly, the 256 GB model will cost you $899, £899 or $1479 (Australian dollars).

It’s not that bad, if you ask me because the iPhone X, the basic model, was available for more than the price of the XR’s 256 GB model.

It’s worth getting!

Release Date

The iPhone XR will be available via pre-orders from October 19 onwards. It will be on Apple stores from October 26 onwards.

While the pre-orders of the new phone are just two days away, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will both be available for pre-orders before that.

The Screen

Now we come to the other main parts of the phone… it’s screen.

Well, the new iPhoneXR has a 6.1-inch screen and thick bezels. It uses the new Liquid Retina display. If you look at the screen on the whole, it is sort of lower quality than the other models or what new phones have to boast but it’s still not that bad.

We can trust Apple for its screens that I know and can say.

So:

Last year when newer screens and technology was available, Apple stuck to its ground roots and delivered something that was quite impressive.

This time, Apple is still favoring it with the Apple iPhone XR and trust me, it isn’t that bad.

The iPhone XR, however, has a screen ratio close to 18:9 which is different than the regular 16:9; therefore, it may take some time for users to get used to it.

The Feel

You know, the feel of holding a phone is a very important factor for users. Honestly, I felt that the phone is a little bigger so it does feel big in hands. You do feel it is a plus size phone but it doesn’t seem out of ordinary.

It is sleek like other Apple phones or sleeker, but seriously, it feels comfortable in your hands.

Camera

As far as the camera on the device goes, it is safe to say that iPhone XR’s camera is the weakest amongst the three phones by the company. It has just one sensor than two, especially for portrait mode. However, not sure if this is too bad in comparison or not. It, however, doesn’t have a second lens but it isn’t pathetic quality.

The iPhone XR’s camera has a 12MP sensor on its rear. The front has a TrueDepth camera that is used for selfies and unlocking facial features. It also has a Smart HDR that allows the phone to capture good elements of a picture.

Pictures from the XR model aren’t going to be very low quality, in fact, when we tested it, they came out to be sharp and colorful.

Battery Life

The iPhone XR might have a better battery life than expected. There is less power and a more efficient engine on board. Moreover, the screen resolution is also a little less which means that it won’t take up much battery.

Honestly, the iPhone XR isn’t bad. It is the cheaper phone so people might just be a little skeptical about it but on the whole, it is a decent phone for its price tag. Capturing elements of the iPhone X, the XR does have a lot to offer for budget-friendly users.

Verdict

We rank it a 7.5/10. We think it could’ve been better but if it was, wouldn’t it be equal to the pricier versions of the iPhone X?
