Just received:

 

 

Vodafone is today urging customers to get in quick to pick up an amazing offer on the HUAWEI P20  Series superphones which deliver next-generation AI, connectivity and photography. 

 

Vodafone’s Head of Terminals Todd Hardie said the release of the HUAWEI P20 series is highly-anticipated, as it has the power to make every Kiwi a professional photographer.  

 

“The HUAWEI P20 features an all new Leica dual camera, while the HUAWEI P20 Pro features the world’s first Leica triple camera. Both devices include unprecedented AI advances, combining technology and art to bring to life a ground-breaking smartphone experience. 

 

“The HUAWEI P20 is available in Vodafone stores today, while the HUAWEI P20 Pro will be available for pre-order from this afternoon at https://www.vodafone.co.nz/huaweiand in stores on Friday 4th May.  Customers have been waiting for the HUAWEI P20 series and they won’t be disappointed,” Todd said.

 

The HUAWEI P20 series is available in Sleek Black from Vodafone with amazing value for customers with $200 Off Interest Free over a 24 month period for either model when purchased with a $59.99 per month (or above) plan and a $49 deposit, plus all customers purchasing by 31st of May get FREE Social Data for 90 days.

 

“The HUAWEI P20 Series delivers AI which makes capturing professional quality images an effortless experience for all “Selfie Masters”.

 

“With real-time scene and object recognition the 24 MP superphone recognises specific photographic scenarios and automatically adjusts for optimal shots. Every P20 selfie is a winner,” Todd added.

I had a look at both a P20 and P20 Pro in store. The size difference is less than I thought, there's not that much between both phones. The P20 is quite a bit taller than my Galaxy S7.

 

Hardware is very nice, they definitely look and feel very premium.

 

Still not sure I like EMUI, no 3.5 headphone jack, and I really like the size of my S7, so not sure if I will pull the pin. But they are very nice.

Hmmm. Also I was told I have to talk to them to get an OS update for this unit.

Here's an interesting thing: I (used to) have a Semble SIM card. Even though the service doesn't exist anymore, the SIM still performed its functions of connecting my device to the network. It worked on a series of Huawei phones (P9, P10, Mate 8, Mate 9, Mate 10), Nokia 8 and OnePlus 5T. It didn't work on this Huawei P20 Pro. I tested with my daughter's SIM and all was fine. I then went to a Vodafone store and had the SIM swapped so that the P20 Pro could work.

 

Just interesting to know.

Yep, that's why. Had to get demo units and review units into market ASAP and the single SIM variant arrives later.

Haven't tried my primary SIM in the P20 Pro, it's a Semble SIM too, curious to see if I experience the same issue.

It won't be ranged here to my knowledge. Between Nova 2i and Nova 2 Lite that bracket is pretty well covered.

I spent quite a bit of time with P20 in store yesterday. The hardware feels absolute quality and I warmed to EMUI as well - there are a lot of well thought out optimisation/customisation options.

 

However, the one thing that bugged me was the display. Colours looked flat and screen brightness felt dimmer than other LCDs. The whole thing just looked a little washed out. It's a real pity they didn't drop an OLED into this phone as with the Pro.
