Yeah. I've currently got one on each ear!
Great phone and great price! Headphone jack, decent battery and probably one of the best LCD screens I have used in years. The zoom on the camera is pretty great as well.

The big problem is that so far, there's not been a single update from Honor.

I heard it has very weird shadowing on the bottom of the screen and around the cut-out
Love my view 20. To be honest I'd say it's as good as my P30 Pro minus the zoom I'll rarely use and wireless charging.

Where was it bought from please, & Is it locked to a particular network?

What's the full current firmware version, its date & model number of the phone (PCT-???).

Been waiting for the Mate 10 Pro (came out in 2017 October) to fall to that kind of price, but still hasn't - that is for a brand new one.

Mine got updated last week.
Huawei are becoming a bit too much like Apple, Samsung with the extortionate prices. Miss the days when i had Huawei mate 9 for a fraction of other premium phones.
Honor is like the new Huawei. Top specs at half price.
This or the mate 20 ( not pro)

I'd go this personally, but I think they're underpinned by the same basic specs. Iirc
Zameen07/04/2019 13:51

I think the rear cameras will be better on the Mate 20 & there's also an additional one in the latter. The Mate 20 has an additional card slot to add storage as well, nano-memory though (not the regular type). Mate 20 has stereo speakers vs a single speaker on this. Mate 20 also has dust & splash resistance vs none on this. Rest of the specs are pretty close as Mrswitch says, but the Mate 20 will have a more premium build & feel I think & better front glass protection (from past comparisons of Huawei vs Honor phones) - specs comparison: gsmarena.com/com…367

Visual size & physical differences (view side by side on the desktop site for the best effect): phonearena.com/pho…925

In short, I'm going to plump for the Mate 20, even though it's ~£50 costlier. I'd go for this if it was £100 cheaper than the Mate 20.

Got this near-brand new deal, now expired

hotukdeals.com/dea…665

...but picked up recently P20 on Music Magpie so kinda got excess Huawei.

Mate 10 Pro updated to Pie, pretty good but doesn't feel as premium as its peer, Pixel 2 XL (even beating it in some areas like battery life)

P20 on the contrary, does feel as good as S9 = Huawei's great leap forward

It's there, not gonna lie, but it's honestly not bad at all, you would forget about it pretty quickly unless you're very easily annoyed by that kinda thing.

I'm sure it will be with you within the next week so I wouldn't worry too much. Was a decent patch, makes improvements to the super night mode. I could definitely tell a difference after the patch. Also said improvements to touch screen and general stability.

I think the shadowing around the cutout is a known limitation. It's why I'm a little hesitant but buy a phone with a cutout, think I prefer the notch
