Huawei P20 Pro battery life

Huawei P20 Pro comes packed with a 4000mAh battery capacity with a fast charge which can fill it up to 100% in 1 hour 25 minutes. The fast charge stamina matches that of Mate 10Pro. The battery has a massive 500mAh past Samsung Galaxy S9+ which has a 35 00mAh power capacity.

When buying smartphones, most people put great considerations on battery, and on this regard, the Huawei P20 Pro battery life is a great answer.

The battery can easily ride you through the day, surfing the web, using social media profiles like Facebook, Twitter etc. You can even go for 2 days if you are using it normally.

After using it for about 8 hours, from 6 am to 2 pm, the battery was still at 70%, using YouTube, browsing the internet, social media. After a day, I had 45% battery power, which was a nice experience for me. It takes me about half an hour to fill up the battery to 100%, thumbs up to Huawei’s supercharge technology.

I usually use Samsung Note 8, and honestly, I could hardly spend a solid day with a single charge. Most of the time I had to reduce screen brightness and background activity to save power. With the Huawei P20 pro, it seems a thing of the past.

However, the only gruesome issue about the battery is the absence of wireless charging. Considering the popularity of the feature and the reason that most of the latest Android phones have this feature makes its absence a big minus for Huawei’s latest flagship.

The Huawei P20 pro battery capacity equals to Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which also has a staggering 4000mAh power capacity.

So many reviews have given Huawei’s P20 Pro top marks than it’s rivals and the biggest advantage Huawei P20 Pro has had, is an excellent battery life.

To make this clear, the team at Tom’s Guide carried out a battery test. The test by the team tried to set out the same conditions to all the phone that were involved in the test

The test, among other things, was the continuous surfing of the web. Smartphones involved were, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, OnePlus 6, Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone X, LG G7 ThinQ etc

To make sure things were fair Tom’s Guide says that:

To ensure consistency, we run all of our phone battery tests on T-Mobile’s network, and we ensure that the phones have full signal strength by using a signal booster called the T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot.

After the test, Huawei P20 Pro topped the list with the most hours of battery life of 14 hours and 13 minutes, on the second position was Google Pixel 2 XL which had 12 hours and 09 minutes, followed by Galaxy Note 9, with 11 hours and 16 minutes.

The remainder smartphones including iPhone X was on average of 7 to 10 hours of battery life

Huawei P20 Pro memory

The Huawei P20 Pro has a staggering 128GB/256 internal memory. This is a huge amount of storage space for an ordinary phone user and even for a Pro.

However, the Huawei’s flagship doesn’t have a memory card slot. Yes, you heard me right, it has no place for an expandable memory. I really wonder why Huawei did that, it’s absolutely a big minus to the phone considering almost all smartphones released nowadays have an expandable memory.

So if you have any serious amount of photos or videos in your phone, you may need to take a minute to look into one or two methods of storing your data safely online or else you may constantly need to free up space when the need arises by deleting unwanted data.

It is a very common feature and its absence is unjustifiable. The latest Galaxy Note 9 has a staggering 512GB of expandable memory, and Huawei must look into that in order to keep up with the competition.

DesignHuawei P20 Pro

Huawei P20 Pro has one of the immaculate smartphone design in 2018 many are dying to have in their hands. The smartphone migrated from its predecessor, the Huawei P20, with a larger 6.1-inch screen accompanied by an ~82.0% screen to body ratio.

The flagship inherited most of the positives and negatives from its siblings. P20 Pro has notable grayish areas which include;

  • The absence of expandable memory
  • No radio
  • No headphone jack

But it has managed to bring a super shiny phone which feels really great in your hands, it comes in a range of awesome colors. It is built in a metal frame with a hardened glass body.

With the weight at 180g and the body mainly made of glass and aluminum, the phone is super light. You can not, of course, expect a razor-thin phone from such a big flagship, but still, Huawei tried it’s best in keeping thickness and weight commendably well up to standard.

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 having 201g and a screen size of 6.4 inches, if you opt for a more light smartphone with an excellent performance, then the Huawei Pro is the one.

Huawei p20 pro cameraHuawei P20 Pro

The Huawei P20 Pro have 3 cameras arranged behind its back that produce super awesome results.

  • Have an incredible 3* optical zoom.
  • Outstanding low light Night mode and.
  • Al scene mode mat.

The main camera has a 40MP ultra-high resolution and is helped by the 20MP black and white sensor, a great camera feature that helps in processing and soothing your images to a fine tune. It helps in decreasing noise and in dynamic range improvement.

The 3rd camera has a 3* zooming lens that also helps in zooming scenes, with this camera, you will never mind the use of digital zoom.

The addition of a triple camera makes it possible to add DSLR-style to the photos you shoot. You can shoot 3* optical zoom as well as optical zoom. 1.6 aperture makes it easy to shoot photos in low light. Setting it to low light night mode will enable you to produce super high-quality photos even in the darkest scenes.

With its artificial technology, the Al scene mode can detect scenes to produce best of quality pictures. It can automatically detect scenes and colors like blue, green flowers, pets etc.

  1. Hello and thanks for sharing. This is a good review on this phone. The features on this phone is great. I love smart phones for what they can do and I believe that anyone should have one of them. Great review. I am sure that your readers will love what you are sharing about this phone.

  2. More than once had crossed my mind to buy a Huawei in the past but for one or the other reason I never did. The P20 Pro looks like a beast so until I decide to change my smartphone price will definitely become more affordable for purchasing. Nice review, I will definitely add this to the list of potential replacements.

  3. This is a very informative post, you have given me all the details i need for this phone. Now I am equiped with all the knowledge i needed to go and make my next purchase. Thank you helping.

  4. It’s always nice to see a meaningful review for something other than Samsung and Apple.  These phones are definitely making waves in the industry, and that storage is hefty.  128GB in 2018?  That’s something there.  With streaming the way it is, a lot of manufacturers are stripping back the storage, so I think they are going after a very targeted market there, those folks that still like to carry real files on their phone and not use data all the time to stream everything under the sun.  It’s an interesting offering.  Like the review.

  5. This is a great review of the cell phone that I want to buy soon.

    Normally my cell phone I use is for what it is, calls and messages and work on my blog, now I have a samsung galaxy s7 edge and the truth is that I´m disappointed, at first it worked quite well and had no big problem, but after some months of use became somewhat slow when I´m surfing the internet or simply using the applications that the cell phone has and the system is constantly locked and is very slow, sometimes it goes blank or turns off, when my cell phone has enough memory free and the internet that I use is pretty good.

    Ultimately I want to change it as soon as possible, and the huawei p20 pro has caught my attention completely, I just wonder if it is a good option to work my blog in that cellphone?

    Thanks for the info.

  6. Hey there! This phone looks awesome! I’ve been looking for a good Android phone and I really like this one. Its charge rate is really fast too. I am just wondering, what does mAH?

    Thanks for taking the time to write this very in depth and detailed review. It has really helped me in my search for a better phone and I will be bookmarking this page for later on when I’m ready to purchase one.

    1. You are welcome  Melinda, mAh mean “mili ampere hour”, it represents the amount of power stored in a battery. Usually a higher mAh mean a battery can take long without drainimg all its power.

  7. Of late I have noticed that Huawei is a popular choice for a new cell phone, especially amongst the younger generation. About a year ago everyone had only iPhone and Samsung, but now it looks as though the wheels are turning again.

    I think the massive amount of storage on the device at more affordable prices will make its popularity rise even more, not to mention the battery life, which Apple and Samsung at the moment can’t seem to beat.

    Maybe it’s time for Huawei to have its time to shine now.

  8. I have been closely watching this phone for some time now. Although on the costlier side, this is getting rave reviews in my country, India. And of the Diwali sales here (Diwali is the biggest Indian festival), Amazon will be offering nearly 25% discount on it. Cool, no? The battery is a big advantage but I think I’ll like the camera. But seriously, does it have no headphones jack? Now that’s a bummer, isn’t it? But boy! The phone looks good. Good review.

  9. Dear Ngonidzashe,

    Thanks a lot for the review post on Huawei P20. Your post is well detailed and very helpful.

    I am currently using Xaoimi MI3 I purchased it 3 years before and I am thinking of purchasing a new mobile phone. Since my mobile is causing a few problems (Getting slow).

    Yes indeed, 128GB is quite a lot I am currently using just 16GB (MI 3) and the battery also seems awesome. This phone sounds great and for sure its on my list.

    Thanks again for the thorough and comprehensive review. You saved us a lot of time via your review post.

    Wishing you great success!

    Paul

  10. Good afternoon Ngonidzashe,

    It is very good I have come across your detailed report of the Huawei P20Pro. I must be honest as I am not very knowledgeable on mobile phones. I think my better half beats me there. I will have to pass your post on to him so he is informed about the latest models on the market.

    I did see that this phone has a very good battery capacity. I think he will like that as his phone is on all the time. You also mentioned that the included camera is first class. That does also interest me. We both love photography so a good camera is on top of the list. Thank you for all the information, now let us see he thinks about it.

  11. Hi, I have never heard of Huawei before. The company’s website says they are  #79 on Forbes most valuable brands list.  I looked at the list and they rank above Adobe! Crazy I’ve never heard of them, but I do tend to stick with Samsung so far. I can’t believe the battery life on this phone! I have a Samsung s7 and I need to recharge before lunch sometimes. It really is a bummer that it doesn’t have wireless charging. That’s a big deal to me. I have never found the SD card in my Samsung all that useful, so it’s lack of one doesn’t bother me. Like the 40x zoom! Thanks for the review!

  12. i’ve always been a fan of huawei phones. Currently im using one of the lower end huawei honors.

    One issue I have with it though is that it tends to heat up, will the huawei p20 have this problem? I can stand most things but heating really annoys me haha

    Else the rest of the features are pretty good considering that it is priced fairly reasonably.

  13. The battery life really sounds so good, it can really get irritating when I have to keep monitoring my phone battery when in use. On days of heavy usage, I may have to charge my phone 2 times a day! I think I can still live without wireless charging, as I usually charge only when I’m at home. 

    Thank you for this comprehensive review of the Huawei p20 pro.

  14. I have had a lot of phones but Huawei is one I’ve never had – not for any reasons other than it was pretty new when I was considering switching away from Samsung.  Does it have the ability to download free music from MP3 sites?  That’s one thing that I miss about my old Samsung.  I now have a Iphone but I am looking at switching to something different as these new phones seem to have a lot of great features.

    Great review.  You have definitely given me a lot to think about when I go to get a new phone.

  15. Hi Ngonidzashe,

    I can appreciate a smart phone with very important features that stand out in your review by the way very professional. In my case, I love two characteristics that make it unique for me. The first is that using it with a lot of daily activity, the incredible capacity of your battery can OK two days quietly.

    The other is the quality of the photos, has a spectacular optical zoom of 3, outstanding in night mode in low light. I like very much to take clear photos. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Hi, I am using a Huawei phone but a small version, as it only have one camera, but I see your review is about Hua p20 pro, with 3 cameras, but you said no radio or memory slot. 

    To tell the truth as based on your review I think the Huawei phones are great, I bought mine because one recommended the brand and I have no regret so far except with the camera,it takes time to click making it difficult for snap shots. 

    The batter power life and charging is great, It lasts longer and I like the Save power mode, and also the automatic brightness control mode. It works perfectly without you lifting a finger. 

    Yes, you have talked about the p20 version which is different from mine, the point here is that based on your review and my own experience, I think all Huawei phones are a great piece though not 100%  Mine has a memory card slot, headphone and radio. May be is only the bigger version probably may be due to the three cameras.

  17. What an interesting review of the Hauwei P20 Pro. Good to the see the pros and the cons when comparing it to the Samsung Note 9, Apple iphone XS and others, especially the battery life. Hauwei P20 Pro coming up trumps on that score.

    It is a pity there is no memory card slot or wireless charging. These seem a strange things to leave out on such an updated phone.

    I absolutely love the idea of the three cameras, especially with the zoom. Should be able to take some wonderful photos with it.

  18. The Huawei P20 sure sounds like a beast for operating time.  That is one headache with my IPhone, any high power usage results in a battery that dies out before the day is over.  That 14 hour result shown in testing is really sweet. 

    Do you think they don’t have expandable memory because they assume that people will be uploading to the cloud virtually concurrently with picture taking/videos and such?

    If have decide to switch to an android I’ll definitely have to seriously consider this phone. 

  19. I have never had an android, but the next time I upgrade, I think I will try the Huawei P20 Pro.  I like to take lots of pictures with my phone, but I am just a novice at it.  How difficult is the Huawei P20 Pro to use for simple photos?  A friend of mine made it sound really difficult, and I am really not a tech savvy person.  Will this phone work with the Verizon Network, or will I have to switch?  Thank you for any advice you can give me.   Clay

  20. Hey Ngonidzashe, nice post. I love how informative your article was about that particular android phone; it’s so hard to find a good review on an android phone. 

    Also, I love how you listed all of the features; it’s definitely giving me something to think about when considering upgrading my android phone. I’ve had mine for a little while and I love it. 

    All I can say is that your review of the phone was awesome. Great job!

  21. I love Huawei phones. They are really good. 

    I tried my luck with the Samsung last, but will go back to Huawei. 

    It looks really great and the size is just right. Not to big and not too small. You can watch videos without losing the sight of the detail.

    However, the lack of expandable memory worries me. Do you think they are trying to push their users to move towards saving their stuff online? 

    Very happy to hear the battery can last a whole day! I use my phone a lot and need this. 

    Thank you for the thorough review. I’ll head over and read some more.

    1. No, I don’t think it’s a way of pushing customers to store their data online though, I think it was just a poor consideration by Huawei on that aspect. Hope they will look into that on their next flagship

  22. Great review, very thorough. I also read your reviews on Samsung. Which phone do you think would be best for gaming? My problem is I want to use my phone for usual activities, watching movies, and gaming, but I NEVER have enough battery life for a day! Any suggestions?

    1. There are two things to consider here, battery and performance. Huawei P20 pro has a very strong battery than the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but when it comes to performance the Huawei P20 Pro Kirim 970 chip accompanied by a 6GBRAM, surely is a force to be reckoned but the Galaxy Note 9 Exynos 9810 chip, sets the benchmark on Android phones performance as of now.
