On October 26th, the Huawei Mate 20 series finally met with domestic consumers. They were Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X and Mate 20 RS Porsche. As one of the most watched flagships of the year, the Huawei Mate 20 series uses a number of innovative black technology blessings and is praised by foreign media as “the best mobile phone of 2018”.

Among them, the star single product Huawei Mate 20 Pro is highly praised. This time we got the Huawei Mate 20 Pro for the first time. After a period of experience, we will bring you the in-depth evaluation of Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Have a first-hand experience about it.

Technology and humanity integration, excellent appearance and excellent hand feel

When Huawei Mate 20 Pro was released overseas, the first time I saw it on the Internet, the author was not as cold as the majority, but even disappointed, but when I really got the real machine, it was still deep. Deep and amazing.

After getting the hand, the first look is the slender body, the front is the design of the bangs + curved screen, using a 6.39-inch 2K-level OLED screen, the overall screen ratio is about 86.9%, the resolution is reached 3120 * 1440 pixels, screen pixel density: 538 PPI, in the current mainstream flagship, its screen quality is still at the top level.

The left and right borders of the mobile phone are comprehensive in structure, and the presence of the border is almost invisible. The eight-curve design of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro makes the fuselage simple and elegant.

On the back, it is commonly known as the "extra-running eye" design. In addition, there are no other extra elements in the back, and the whole is very simple and atmospheric.

The bright black version we got, the back looks a bit low-key, and the fingerprint collection problem is more obvious. So needless to say, it is highly recommended that you buy the Mate 20 Pro's main 翡 翠 翠 or Aurora color version, according to the introduction, it uses a micro-dimensional depth texture, combined with the micro-scale glare texture attached to the back of the glass, forming a unique The ultra-optical structure pattern is a collision between technological innovation and literary classics across time and space.

Of course, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the most impressive and excellent grip. The relatively slim body of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, combined with the hyperboloid glass, allows most girls with small hands to easily hold one hand. In detail, the front and back arcs are symmetrical, and the curved transition effects on both sides are also good. The curvature of the curved surface is just right, and it does not cause the wrong feeling and the squeaky feeling caused by the thinness of the middle frame. The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is better.

In terms of details, we also found some bold changes. Huawei Mate 20 Pro also canceled the 3.5mm headphone jack, canceled the speaker opening, and replaced it directly from the handset and T-ype C interface, but this minimalist design, There are also some problems. When the T-ype C interface is plugged in, it does have some impact on the sound quality and stereo effect, but the problem is not big. The power button has also been specially treated with red ripples. The SIM card slot has also been moved to the bottom of the phone. In the minimalist design, the Camera is centered, centered, and symmetrical. It reflects the consistent aesthetics of the Mate series.

Kirin 980 AI processor with strong performance brings endless possibilities

Huawei Mate 20 series is equipped with Huawei's first 7nm mobile phone chip - Kirin 980, 7nm process technology, big step leading industry dual-core NPU design, new CPU + GPU lineup, making Kirin 980 a new generation of excellent artificial smart phone chip .

Based on the Kirin 980, the Huawei Mate 20 series has achieved dual-card dual 4G dual VoLTE breakthroughs, that is, two SIM cards remain connected at the same time. When the card 1 calls, it will not affect the incoming call or data traffic of the card 2. For example, when you are in the office, the Huawei Mate 20 series can use the mobile phone to check the information while you are on the phone. When the team calls the game, when another card calls, the Huawei Mate 20 series will not be disconnected and turned into a pig teammate.

At the same time, Kirin 980 has made great efforts in user communication connection security. In response to the emerging pseudo base station attack mode, it has further added security mechanisms at the chip level, and comprehensively upgraded the technology for identifying 2G pseudo base stations. At the same time, the industry is the first to support the identification of 4G pseudo base stations. Improve the security of users under the mobile communication network, greatly reduce the probability of fraud, and protect the security of users' property and information.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro retains a 40 megapixel wide-angle camera and an 8 megapixel telephoto lens that provides 3x optical zoom for the P20 Pro, but replaces the 20 megapixel black and white lens with a Leica ultra-wide-angle 20 megapixel lens. Compared with the Huawei P20 Pro, the black-and-white camera has a slight impact on the overall image quality, and the details of the partial zoom section have a slight impact.

Zoom in twice the detail of the night scene

The addition of the telephoto lens also enabled the Huawei mobile phone to successfully realize the 5X hybrid zoom function, which in turn enables zooming directly when shooting close-up objects at a distance, bringing a lossless image quality experience for close-up shooting at a distance.

In-screen fingerprint, 3D face unlocking, two kinds of biometric unlocking new gameplay

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro 8+128GB (UD) version we got, combines the fingerprint and 3D face biometric technologies into one, providing users with a more comprehensive and secure unlocking method. Thoroughly let Huawei Mate 20 Pro get rid of the front fingerprint recognition module, making its screen ratio higher.

In the actual experience, you only need to touch the screen fingerprint module to unlock the second. In the state of the information screen, Huawei Mate 20 Pro further optimizes the unlocking speed, unlocking rate and hovering perception function, and can intelligently perceive the existence of the owner. The owner of the machine is fully spiritual. When the finger is within 1.5cm of the screen, the fingerprint pattern on the screen will automatically light up.
