I think the answer is more than obvious, given the fact that the innovative 40MP camera module from the P20 Pro is not present on the P20.

The p20 pro has better battery life and a better camera. What's more important than battery life anyway?!

The Pixel 2's or Galaxy S9's are great for AR and they support Google's ARCore. The V30's are great too. The new Sony XZ2's also support ARCore as well.

1. Does it 'spy' on you? 2. Do you agree with DxOMark's rating? 3. Is it worth it to go for the so called 'Pro' variant instead of vanilla? 4. Do you love the notch? 5. Do you hate the notch? 6. Do you wish it had no notch? 7. Am I starting to annoy you? Fret not; I'm about to say; G'Day!

The difference isn't all that huge in daytime. Night is a tad better but will excellent.

Why is the gaming experience so poor on the P20 Pro? The touch input lag is terrible. The digitizer is not accurate either, with finger movement after a touch having to move 3-4mm before it registers the finger movement.. Did Huawei go for a low quality digitizer?

Do you notice the Notch while using the "hide notch option" or is it hard to notice?

1) is it properly supported on t-mobile's network? 2) can you suggest an accessory to use the HDMI desktop mode that will also charge the phone? 3) does using Huawei Share make the phones files visible over wifi on a Mac? 4) is there any hope for Daydream compatibility? 5) how is the included universal remote app for the IR Blaster? 6) how does Huawei's fast charging compare to quick charge, dash charge, etc 7) US availability and any warranty options?

Hi, mate! How can I turn off the POCKET MODE? I already tried pressing the power button and the volume button. I tried it in many ways, but it did not work. How is that?
