The Huawei Mate 20 Pro | Why I made the switch

For my critics that say I have little influence in the tech gadget industry, dig this. In the same week I announce I'm migrating over to Huawei, another monolithic phone brand has its biggest dip in share price in over five years. Coincidence? I'll let you decide. 

It's true, I'm now playing for the other team. And before all you ladies start asking 'what's the point in living?' I mean I've now switched over to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. (Blackadder gag). 

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro

The highly anticipated Huawei Mate 20 Pro is now available in the UK, introducing a new level of highly intelligent performance to consumers with the world’s first Dual-AI powered smartphone.

The handset is more intelligent and efficient than any other Android Smartphone on the market. But why did I make the switch? 

A perfect fit for me

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro offers more versatility with the Leica triple camera and an ultra-wide-angle lens, meaning the phone has the most detailed macro shots available.

Part of my job is to attend a lot of press events. Many of them in the evening on a weekday, inside a bar or pop-up space. The lighting is always low and I'm always anxious that the light will diminish the quality of the shot. 

The Leica triple camera works brilliantly in the low light. There is a special night time mode that brings your nightlife pics to life! I'm enjoying playing around with the Pro Mode that enables you to change the ISO's and the Shutter Speed etc. 

The Battery Life! 

However, I'm burying the lead here. The truly remarkable feature I've found is the battery life. It can go for 2 days with no charge. With moderate to low use it can go all week. 

I was getting very tired of schlepping the extra battery pack around for my previous phone, knowing it wouldn't last the course of the day. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro even has a unique wireless reverse charging feature that shares Huawei battery performance with others that own non-Huawei devices – a feature only available the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

It can go from 0 to 70% battery life with 30 minutes of charge time. I know! This is like something that Phillip K. Dick would dream up. 

Should you make the switch? 

I've only just scraped the surface with this phone but I can't recommend it enough. The battery life, the quality of camera, not to mention the sleek slimline design, advanced waterproofing. 

If you're coming to the end of your contract, maybe disenchanted with your current smartphone and its overall performance, look into the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. I'm happy to answer any questions on my Instagram or in the comments below if you need further guidance.
