Choosing the perfect smartphone for yourself is sometimes easier said than done.
You want all the best features out there on the smartphone, but you know your bank account will not like you for it. Likewise, if you only have a certain budget to spend, you can’t expect groundbreaking features.
So, if you’re one of those poor souls who are stuck with this conundrum, we’ve found the perfect smartphone out there in terms of tech and price tag: the Huawei Mate 20 Pro
The Mate 20 Pro is packed to the brim with the latest features and hardware: running on the industry-leading Kirin 980 chipset with up to 8GB of RAM, the smartphone was also the first one in the market to feature three rear cameras co-engineered with famous camera brand Leica.
Recently, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro was named the ‘Best Smartphone’ at the World Mobile Congress 2019 in recognition of its powerful performance, outstanding camera system, long battery life, innovative charging solutions and striking design.
This coveted accolade serves as an Oscars award in the technology scene, proving Huawei’s leading technologies and its commitment to delivering the best products and user experiences to consumers around the world.
On top of the brilliant design, breakthrough technologies and attractive price tag here are four other features that set it apart from other smartphones in the market:
#1 Wirelessly charge your friend’s phone
We’ve heard about fast charging (actually, the Mate 20 Pro has that too with the 40 W5 HUAWEI SuperCharge function), but there’s nothing like the Mate 20 Pro’s wireless reverse charging feature.
The feature works like how it sounds: you can use the Mate 20 Pro to charge other smartphones that support wireless charging. The Mate 20 Pro boasts a massive 4,200 mAh battery, so when activated, the Mate 20 Pro works like a wireless charging pad. All you need to do is to turn the function on, place another smartphone on the Mate 20 Pro’s back and voila, it charges the phone like a power bank.
We now know who will be everyone’s favourite friend during mamak sessions (yes, it’s you!).
#2 Unlock your phone without a physical button
Face unlock is so 2016, right? The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is one of the first few smartphone models that sport the in-screen fingerprint scanner.
Gone are the days where you would need to move your thumb around a physical button or clean your fingers because the sensor can’t detect your fingerprint; with the Mate 20 Pro’s Dynamic Pressure Sensing technology, you just need to lift your finger, touch the screen and the screen unlocks almost instantaneously.
Welcome to the future, boys and girls!
#3 Take extremely beautiful pictures – at night!
If the three cameras at the back – a 40 MP main RGB lens, an 8 MP telephoto lens, and the whole new 20 MP Leica Ultra Wide-Angle Lens – don’t scream “Best pictures ever!”, we don’t know what will.
With its trio of cameras on the rear, one killer feature that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro possesses that often gets overlooked is its night photography prowess. Powered by an advanced AI Image Stabilisation feature, the Night mode will shoot blur-free and focused handheld photos in low-light.
On top of that, it also balances high-contrast scenes to present incredible images in every setting. So, it doesn’t matter what time of day it is, you can take tonnes of beautiful pictures.
#4 Use the phone as a projector
Ever wanted to show your friend a cute cat video, but your phone screen is a little bit too small? Well, you won’t have that problem with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
With its Easy Projection Wireless mode, you could turn your smartphone into a projector – without the need for wires. This feature allows you to project presentations or videos to a larger screen. Even better, you could turn your mobile game into a TV game.
Here’s the best part: in this mode, you are still able to send messages or make phone calls independently with your privacy well-protected.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro (6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage) goes for RM3,599
and the 256GB model (with 8GB of RAM) goes for RM3,999
, a pretty reasonable price for a features-packed smartphone, if you ask us.
