Been hunting around for deals for the Huawei P20 Pro and came across this.

I'm aware the prices at a EE store are cheaper however I phoned around 20 stores within a 100 mile radius to myself and non have it in stock and are a 3 week waiting peroid for one however if you want it quicker this is definitely the best option.

You have to purchase this phone with a sim 30 day plan the cheapest one is ;

All-In-One 10 Add-on.
Get 3000 texts and 3000 minutes plus 1GB of internet for just £10. This comes preloaded to your SIM and will last 30 days.

The total cost of it works out to £664.99

Brilliant phone, brilliant price!


Average phone, bad price. Yes, this phone looks good on paper but it really isn’t that great and not worth this money.
It can’t stream Netflix in HD, will have limited support for updates (nothing beyond a year) and the camera, despite the hype is no better than any other flagship. This should be £500 at the very most

The camera is the best on any smartphone to date, as said by almost every review, and the performance is on par with most flagships bar perhaps the top 1-2 phones. While I agree with your £500 statement (UK phones are stupidly expensive) a bezel less phone with triple 40MP cameras, 4000mA battery, the latest Kirin processor and 6GB RAM is not an average phone.

Won't comment on updates and don't know what Huawei are like for patching
I can assure anyone who has doubts about how good this phone is, its the real deal.

I have owned galaxy phones up to now, but the S9 just didn't seem worth paying for. This phone is the excellent alternative I was looking for. Its cheaper than a S9 plus, the battery like trumps any other on the market. Its super quick, and the camera is without doubt the best camera ive ever owned. The speakers are excellent, beaten only by forward facing phone speakers.

If you wanted a s9+ but aren't willing to spend as much, this Is the "at worst" equivilent. Although I think it is better.

Brilliant phone, average price? There have been both PAYG and contract deals that are way better value than this.

I know OP you mentioned the EE post, but unless you are dying for this in the next week or so, just wait and save £150? Seems a bit silly.
Does anyone know what the deal with twilight colours is? Is it region exclusive or will they delay them to increase sales further on down the line? Can't seem to find them anywhere

From where i've been looking I.E Carphone Warehouse & Very usual stores the normal price appears to be £799 with a slight discount on contracts and cashbacks and such however i'm not sure if it was cheaper and is more expensive due to demand or something?

Sure it's more than the EE store but if you look online it's still quite a good price I haven't seen a retailer online that offers it at this price as posted or better, even EE you have to go into store to get it for that price also noting you won't get it straight away you'll be waiting around 3/4 weeks for it so I see it personally as a £150 ish saving if you include cashback from a RRP.

I think Huawei has removed twilight version on the UK website, meaning they have no twilight to sell in the UK?
Will just use this thread to ask: is a P20 (non-pro) for £350 worth it?
Anyone know why this would be chosen over the OnePlus 5T? I cant really see any reasons
Can only see contract plans on the EE site for this phone. Anyone got a link to the phone only page please?

I moved from the Oneplus 5 to the P20 pro. Main difference is that the camera is a LOT better. Night and day difference. Secondly, the battery life is far better and the form factor is a lot cooler. Front facing speakers also make a huge difference and the HDR-supporting display is a great addition.
Just posted a contract deal for this which works out about £220 more than this with a 4GB SIM, 2 year's Spotify Premium and of course the same phone, so paying this for the phone alone seems to make little sense to me, unless you have a SIM deal that gives you a very good package for 8-9 quid a month
I just dont see how a few features can justify the way higher price of a OnPlus 5T

What you'll find is OnePlus cheap out on certain things to keep the costs down....

As examples;

- Modem (The latest OnePlus 5T is only Cat 12) - Samsung are on Cat 16.

- Software (they quite happily allow you to flash the O/S and under some circumstances will replace it if it is damaged in the process they are known to do this)

Yea I have no doubt, but the OnePlus 5T can be bought for £350 while this as a deal is £665. I just personally dont think the added extras are worth the £315 asking price. and for that I can neither vote hot or cold im afraid.

The camera is not that great and in day to day situations with the camera set to auto you’d get better results with a Pixel 2, iPhone 8/X or S9.
The Kirin processor is quite capable but not as good as snapdragon equivalent and the inability to display HD content in Netflix, Amazon prime etc in unforgivable on a phone at this price point

It honestly depends on the user requirements the end user at the end of the day will be losing certain features such as durability, design, performance etc..

I believe the 40MP camera and the software is the main selling point for this device as it lacks features from higher end smartphones as such S9+ (Screen Resolution, Processor (Performance), and even RAM as you said other devices have more)

Generally speaking when a phone costs more there's usually a reason for this as a example...

Apple devices cost more than normal android handsets because their chips are more powerful (At least in benchmark scores) they also use bigger and more expensive pieces of silicon whilst I respect it doesn't affect everyday use or slightly does there's still a performance difference between Apple/Qualcomm that is quite noticeable still to this date (It's also worth noting that Apple have more experience in this department as they were first to launch a 64bit CPU in a smartphone to the public, they also tend to use more premium materials in their handsets as apposed to many android devices they also make their internals look absolutely fantastic (And no i'm not a Apple Fan Boy, but I do love how Apple design their handsets interior and exterior) It's also worth mentioning although Samsung produce their display it's actually quite a expensive display especially on their iPhone X. To cut a long story short Apple don't cheap out as much as many android phones do, they usually spend a decent amount on parts that go into the handset, also regarding Apple many people fail to realise you're paying also for Stores (Rent, Electric, Gas), Employees Salaries, Research and design of their chips, Cloud services they will have a data centre for iCloud that needs paying for etc...

Are you sure it is still at that price in EE? Was told it was 799 when I went in and they looked and showed me on the system
I havent seen this on the Three site, checked on chat and they said it was stock based and they generally get new stock every Monday. Did however confirm the price at 'around £650'
A notch and a chin. Yeah, well done Huawei...
Don't forget this would also be the dual sim version compared to the EE version which is single sim.
Is it worth the extra money? Depends on you...

I completely agree with you. No Huawei phone should me more than £500! The whole point of these kind of Brands are there to compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple at lower prices. This is ridiculously priced!

Sorry have to disagree about the phone. I'm finding it a revelation compared to an s7 and my wife s iPhone. But each to their own.

Phone looks nice, camera seems better in some scenarios but almost never in auto VS the Pixel 2 as far as I could tell - eg to get the (admittedly great) low light landscape feature you have to go into settings and switch it on for that given scene.

Saw a lot of reviews on this but with any phone review I tend to trust the more negative ones a bit more than the excessively positive ones, as Huawei have been known to (shall we say) obfuscate reality somewhat with their claims and they certainly treated those 24 hour reviewers in Paris well.

As with every new device it pays to wait a few weeks after launch for the reality to hit home. The Supersaf and Matthew Moniz comparisons I watched seemed to show the camera's dynamic range is not the best VS the Pixel and Samsung S9 Plus - certainly in auto. Obviously this had a lot of Huawei fans seething in anger that the reviewers didn't use a particular mode or setting to make the Huawei look better, but this is fine by me as I never use manual settings or even change scene modes - I have a camera for that. To me a phone camera needs to be the best quality it can with the least amount of effort.

All of the above, coupled with the notoriously iffy updates and Marmite software on Huawei devices (I have a P Smart) puts me off spending this amount. Particularly given how quickly they tend to drop in price.
why is there a Bose Headphone in the photo? Is this included?

All depends what you want. For me its the location of the finger print scanner is important. After having an s8 for about 9 months I've had enough of the face unlock as its crap and so slow. Ive also learnt from this phone i cant stand the fp scanner on the back of the phone.

So i'm looking for a phone with very good screen estate but also has a fp on the front. I was hoping for a under screen fp scanner to be for sale this year but doesn't look like thats happening. So i think for me the compromise of the p20 pro with good screen estate and scanner at the bottom is very attractive to me.

Depends on your requirements I guess. I could never go for a OnePlus 5T as the camera is my first priority (and yes, I have a DSLR as well). I would definitely pay a couple of hundred extra to get the best camera. Sounds like it's not that important to you so obviously it wouldn't be worth your while upgrading.

I would prioritise camera over screen resolution any day. But each to their own.

1080p is actually more than enough. I once compared my LG G4 (ultra high res screen) to my LG G2 (1080p) and to my Moto G (720p)

I first noticed there is no advantage what so ever in terms of realestate, the same amount of info os displayed. Also could not notice any difference in clarity, the screen looked just as sharp on all of them.

The Huawei 20 Pro has no 3.5 jack, which is a deal breaker for me.

We need to apply soe common sense and let manugmfactures know about it too.

Edge display? Why why in the world? Glass on the back of the phone? Why why... Just to hide them in a leather case to protect the huge investment?

What about the cost of a replacement screen for edge displays?

We should ask for sdcard slots, dual sim and not hibrid dual sim functionality, replacable batteries and increased battery life even if this would make the phone 1mm taller...

Otherwise manufactures produce products that benefit them not the consumer
Bet the p20 pro goes back up to RRP when they gets them in stock
