High-end smartphones with a 2-3-day battery life that can also wirelessly charge other phones? iT’S TRUE!
Until recently, the only Android game in town belonged to Samsung and Google. But a third Android maker is releasing phones so advanced, it can genuinely claim to be an Android tech leader.
Huawei’s two new flagships, the $1099 Mate 20 and $1599 Mate 20 Pro, deliver crazy battery life despite a feature set that easily matches the top Android competitors.
If you want a phone whose battery easily lasts for a couple of days of regular use, Huawei’s Mate 20 range is your only option. Nothing in the Apple or Android world with similar advanced high-resolution screens, super-fast chips and advanced camera systems even comes close to that.
The Mate 20 comes with a 4000mAh battery, while the Mate 20 Pro has a 4200mAh unit. They’ll last for at least 24 hours of intense use such as calling, emailing, messaging and shooting and uploading videos – the kind of usage that would discharge most smartphones in 4-5 hours. The batteries come with Huawei’s Supercharge tech, which can achieve a charge of up to 70% after just 30 minutes. And if your friend’s phones are running low on juice, you can use your Huawei to wirelessly charge them.
Huawei is also aiming for tech leadership in camera systems, thanks to its partnership with lens manufacturer Leica. The fine detail of photos we took with the Mate 20 Pro’s Leica Triple Camera almost matched that of the iPhone XS and XR series, which are the gold standard in smartphone photography.
With the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, Huawei has made its move into the top tier of smartphone makers.
