P30 vs P20

Which one is best for you?

The Huawei P30 is the direct successor to 2018’s P20, and highlights the impressive advances Huawei have made in just a year – particularly in camera tech.

The Chinese giant’s collaboration with Leica continues to bear fruit, as the P20’s quality 20+12-megapixel dual camera gives way to a 40+16+8-megapixel super snapper which takes astonishingly good photographs, even in extremely low light.

The screen has seen an upgrade too, with the P20’s 5.8-inch capacitive LCD screen replaced by a glorious 6.1-inch, edge-to-edge OLED display which renders colours and contrast with vivacity.

The battery is a little larger, and the new Kirin 980 AI processor delivers a faster and smoother performance. So the P30 marks a considerable improvement over an already excellent phone, and cements Huawei’s reputation as the king of the camera phone.
