    7:00 Surprised that the RAW functionality for photos is almost never mentioned. The produced JPGs lose a lot of the details and sharpness due to heavy denoising. You can load up the RAW files into Lightroom or RawTherapee and get photos with all the details in surfaces and sharpness right down to the single pixels. I never use the JPGs produced, they are shit against what you can do with the RAW image data.

    Normally, on Huawei, if you double tap the open tabs button it goes to the second newest app, that's easier and faster 😊

    Is the internal microphone really bad? I'm a musician and use my phone a lot for recording ideas (guitar and vocals mostly) and a bad sounding mic would be a deal breaker. Is that the case?

    Hey! I have my mate 20 pro for more than 8 months and I never had that bug when I tried to open the most recent app with one tap. If it was a bug, it was corrected early one...
    Ps. I am waiting for the mate 30 pro review 😉

      It wont have GAPPS. It's probably going to be somewhat unusable in western markets.

    Hi there. Question for those who are more experienced in this area. I can get a new Mate Pro for like 480 bucks. Do you think, it's still worth it, especially at this price? Greets.

      Maybe I'm the odd one out then. If I don't have a Bluetooth speaker or my Sonos available I'd rather not listen to music.

      @Rasmus B it has 40mp camera. Even if it had lower resolution, it's not important, resolution is kinda useless

      @Andrei Reginatto the p30 pro has lower resolution then the mate 20 pro.

      With you are OK with importing it, with you find for a lower price than p30 pro, go with it. Otherwise, go with p30 pro

    emui9.1 is really good on the Mate 20 Pro. It now has 30x zoom, gestures are very useful compared with Samsung ONE UI.
    The only part I don't like is the Game launcher not being able to record only the game sound when I use earphones.

  • Justyburger
    Justyburger 2 months ago

    I actually like the speaker under the charge port, because it makes dual use of the same space. Also most of the time, the phone is not on charge anyway. I think my next phone is going to be a Huawei. They are just too good for the price.

    What IS up guys...
    Now, generally the phrase is what's up. Obviously. Everyone knows this.
    Until TheXvid!!!!
    Then, to cap things off, a piece of inanimate tech is a 'guy'

    All within a couple of seconds.

    This is unacceptable really. Is there an unwritten law of annoying vocal tics that every TheXvidr must subscribe to or something???

    For the multitasking bug, I would recommend double tapping the multitasking button to switch to ur second most-recently-used app. Works on my LG v20 running Android 8.0.0
