How I rate Huawei P40 Pro after two weeks given the limitations of self-isolation

The story is too old to be commented.

Great review Mark and some fantastic 5x Optical Zoom camera samples! Shame about the lack of Google but some users might actually love it for that reason alone!

There is a small but still sizeable contingent of tech journalists that are happy to have a third option. There are probably quite a few phone and tech hobbyists who would feel the same.

Somewhere in all the debate about this it got forgotten that millions of Apple users survive every day without Google. They use Maps by Apple (more popular in U.S.), Mail, Facetime and Apple Photos. Someone needs to set up a YouTube alternative :-) Google must be worried or they wouldn't have asked Xiaomi and OnePlus to put 'features all the Google apps you know and love' stickers on their new phones.

Thanks John, much appreciated. Somewhere in all the debate about this it got forgotten that millions of Apple users survive every day happily without Google. They use Maps by Apple (more popular in U.S.), Mail, Facetime and Apple Photos. Someone needs to set up a YouTube alternative for Huawei and Apple :-)

It's some feat that the reviews for this are 8 to 9-ish. We don't do scores right now but if we had to, it's definitely around there.

Mate 30 Pro was amazing hardware but Huawei hadn't got anywhere near a usable app environment.
One headline read "The best phone you will never buy" and gave it 3/5.

Agree. I didn't get Mate 30 Pro but Mate 20 Pro was the Don!
