For several months, we've stopped betting comparisons between the famous criteria – software that evaluates device performance. After more than 23 years of reviewing all types of mobile phones, we are convinced that the most important thing is user experience. And en Mate 20 Pro with Kirin 980 processor with dual NPU and RAM of 6 GB; We are confident that it delivers impeccable performance no matter what you use it.
This Huawei smartphone has integrated the latest version of the Huawei octacore star processor – the Kirin 980 (2 x Cortex-A76 2.6 GHz + 2 x Cortex-A76 1.92 GHz + 4 x Cortex-A55 1.8 GHz) processor. It differs with the double NPU (neuron processing unit, translating the acronym in English) provided by the manufacturer, it will positively and obviously affect the overall performance of the device.
After weeks of using it, we worked very hard on weekdays, very often using social networks, video games with multiplayer mode, Livestreaming and others; all in one day.
We pushed the device a little and did not close any application just to see if running a lot of applications in the background, Mate 20 Pro worked the same way as when the device was turned on. And the answer is yes.
The phone offers excellent performance. It's perfect for those whose smartphone is your collaborator (probably because it was named Mate, "companion" to translate it into English). If the good performance of your team is important to your everyday life.
For example, following the path in Cabify, at the same time editing a video that you need to send instantly to Skype in another app at the same time; A good smartphone performance is critical.
In this case, the team provided us with optimal performance whenever we used a variety of applications. Even when switching from one app to another, there was a delay.
The same thing happened with the latest generation of online multiplayer games. We played several shooter-like games. And we even checked the required racing game No Limit, and requires preloaded animations.
Limitations require an optimal reaction rate so that the game is fully used (Come, then it's a racing car game). After successfully playing, we did not constantly see any type of "Lag" that prevented the proper play; even though we inspected this game with the Instagram app.
With a few words.
Take note of the Kirin processor's AI, as well as its dual NPU development, which greatly improved performance and battery performance.
It can not be denied that Huawei has increased the use of the triple camera for smartphones. The Mate 20 Pro (just like the P20 Pro) has the same triple camera system that does not sway the manufacturer. The camera triangle is really exceptional.
40 MP (color) + 20 MP (color) + 8 MP (color), aperture f / 1.8 + f2.2 + f2.4, support autofocus (depth focus, phase focus, precise approach)
24 MP (color), aperture f / 2.0
The Mate 20 Pro has a very wide image capture mode and in some cases offers shooting modes that are definitely exceptional. Let's start with the tools Huwei has already got used to us:
Discovery: The famous bokeh effect with a background of focus.
Night: the best night-time drink (we know).
Portrait: Famous beauty mode that reduces facial features as well as some filters in the front camera.
Photo: here we can use HDR mode and photos with motion.
Video: It is added with a filter, and beauty mode is also active for the video.
A professional where we can make any adjustments that come to mind.
Highlights: Slow motion, panoramic, monochrome, 3D lens with 3D Qmokis, 3D panoramas, submarine, etc.
Do not forget that the HiVision function is integrated, which allows us to scan QR codes, translate texts captured on the camera, identify objects and search online to purchase an object that is most similar to an object being captured or, if necessary, look for similar images.
After the extensive list of features in the MAte 20 Pro, we end up with two of the most unpleasant features: SuperMacro, which allows you to take objects at a minimum distance to capture very small details. It should be noted that this feature has only a few premium equipment.
We also highlight the Telephoto feature, which allows you to zoom in up to 10x. It's not unusual for premium smartphones, but for Mate 20 Pro it's definitely the best telephoto (zoom) smartphone. And yes, it's best with this feature on the 2018 smartphone. Follow only P20 Pro from the same manufacturer.
With a few words.
These smartphone cameras are by far the most complete of all smartphones that were launched in 2018. From Telephoto, SuperMacro, artificial intelligence with landscape recognition, night mode, diaphragm, wide angle, digital monochrome, water shots, just to mention a few; The Mate 20 Pro is a true Swiss Army knife with very useful features.
And, as if it's not enough, each of the functions works pretty well. It does not bother you.
If we were to choose the best smartphone with the best 2018 cameras, this would be exactly what.
PC World Mexican Suggestion
For most consumers, it's not easy to pay $ 21,000 to a smartphone. However, if you are able to buy a phone within this price range, Mate 20 Pro is currently the best choice. With all features, the machine has more than just costs.
In the light of one case, its closest competitors are Note 9, with the price of Best Buy Mexico at $ 25,000. And it has only two main cameras and the battery is less than 4000 mAh.
LG V35 Mexico pays Mexican pesos for $ 22,000, and although it also has 3 major cameras, it has a much lower battery life (3300 mAh). And neither of the two (we know) is loading as fast as Huawei.
Therefore, comparing, we repeat that we Mate 20 Pro are the best option in this year 2018.
