Huawei Mate 20 Pro – 4.8/5
Probably the smartest phone of 2018.
You may have watched Huawei’s recent commercial of its flagship smartphone, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Perhaps what was most notable was the “ET” moment when the two phones connected. That is the newest and likely to be the coolest feature of 2018: Reverse Wireless Charging. It may not seem like a very practical feature on the first impression, but having a sizable battery (4200mAH) in the Mate 20 Pro definitely justifies it as a radical feature, especially in times of a Mobile Legends game… emergencies.
Guidesify would crown the Huawei Mate 20 Pro as the smartest phone to have this season. And here is why we think it is.

Since change is inevitable and nothing is constant, our views on the product may also change from time to time, especially when reverse wireless charging has only just begun and we are unaware of the full potential of this new tech.
Reverse Wireless Charging
Wireless charging has been increasingly popular in recent years. It’s convenient; you just need to put your phone onto the charging pad and your device will start charging. However, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro goes one step further and comes with Reverse Wireless Charging.
All you have to do is to enable the option in the settings then place any phone that supports Qi wireless charging against the back of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The other phone will start charging immediately. To be honest, don’t expect the charging to be fast and you probably won’t be using it frequently. However, it’s definitely going to come in handy the next time your friend’s phone runs out of juice.
On-screen Fingerprint Sensor
There were many complaints when Apple removed TouchID and replaced it with FaceID for the release of iPhone X. Many questioned: why not embed the TouchID onto the screen or just move it to the back? The Huawei Mate 20 Pro offers this exact solution. The fingerprint scanner quietly hides in your screen. It unlocks your phones quickly and also securely protects your phone from any unauthorised users.
Superb Image Quality
Another notable feature of the Mate 20 Pro is its marvellous camera. It comes with 3 sensors (40MP, 20MP and 8MP), and the Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens. This wide angle lens not only allows you to take wide-angle photos but also records videos up to a resolution of 21:9. It is also equipped with a powerful AI which helps to process your photos after capturing it. Now, anyone can capture a good photo with just a Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
Following The New Headphone Jack Standards
Huawei Mate 20 Pro has also adopted the new headphone jack standard. With this bold move, you can now enjoy your music by inserting a USB-C to 3.5mm audio jack adapter or simply connect it to a high-quality Bluetooth headset.
As each generation of devices gets released, some of the old school technology either gets smaller or becomes obsolete. The SIM card has transformed from the Micro-SIM to Nano-SIM to E-SIM. Now, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro supports the Nano-Memory Card. Things work just like before, you can store your files and pictures on your memory card, just that the physical size is smaller.
Get Supercharged in just 30 minutes
Fast charging is nothing new yet it is definitely one of the best features we all appreciate. We have all been in the situation where we forgot to charge our phone before going to bed and we are left with a drained phone the next day. Or sometimes we just our phone more than usual which drains the battery fasters. Say goodbye to these worries. In 30 minutes, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is able to be charged up to 70%. And take note, the phone comes with a 4,200 mAH battery. It will definitely be able to power you through the rest of your day.
