Huawei P Smart 2020 review
A good all-rounder with Google apps
Our UK Huawei P Smart 2020 review finds a great looking phone that you can pick up from £14.50 per month, on a 24-month contract. The phone gives you what you want with an excellent screen, dual camera, and the traditional set of Google apps.
The Huawei P Smart 2020 has a perfectly-sized 6.21” dewdrop IPS display with Full HD resolution (2,340x 1,080 pixels). The number of pixels is a great win for this phone, and you instantly notice how sharp text is and how good the action looks when playing games.

Huawei achieves the 89% screen to body ratio by using the small notch at the top of the screen for the selfie camera. This notch gives you an almost uninterrupted viewing platform that fills the front of the phone.
3D curved body
The smooth 3D curved body of the Huawei P Smart 2020 looks incredible and has a ceramic-like textured finish. The Midnight Black and Emerald Green colour options have a full and deep hue. The Aurora Blue colour option gets special attention with an 8-layer colour gradient that gives the phone an eye-catching look.

This Huawei mobile phone is 8.2mm thin and weighs 163g. The weight is light compared to many other phones, so this is an excellent phone for the pocket or bag.
Phone Set Up
We love a phone with a decent wedge of memory. The 128GB internal storage will let you bring over all your photos, apps, contacts, and documents, and give you plenty of room to spare. There is a memory card slot for up 512GB micro-SD cards, although only extreme users will need to take advantage of this.
Just because you are not spending £50 or more each month on your smartphone doesn’t mean you should get shorted on features. The Huawei P Smart 2020 does not let us down here with cutting-edge face unlock that works in an instance.
If you feel you want to do a little more than glance at your phone to unlock it, you can use the fingerprint sensor mounted on the rear. The sensor is slightly recessed, which makes it easy to slide your finger across the back of the phone and find the spot that unlocks the phone.
The Huawei P Smart 2020 will be one of your last chances to get Google apps on a Huawei phone. Google apps alone make the P Smart 2020 a good buy, and it makes sense to snap one up straight away.

The phone runs on Google’s Android 9 operating system, and this gives you apps such as Google Maps, YouTube, and the Play Store, where you can download apps and games. Huawei overlays its EMUI 9.1 user interface, which gives the phone character with unique themes, app icons, and Huawei apps.
The Kirin 710 octa-core 2.2GHz processor with 4GB RAM is high-speed and efficient. Everything works seamlessly, from playing racing games and shoot-em-ups to streaming FHD movies and TV shows.
Camera & Video
Our UK Huawei P Smart 2020 review finds a dual camera that delivers results that far outshine single-lens camera phones. The primary camera has a 13MP ultra-clear lens that captures sharp, colourful, and detailed pictures. The main lens gets assistance from a 2MP depth camera. The depth camera ensures that landscape shots look accurate and will allow you to blur the background on portrait shots and create beautiful bokeh results.
The 8MP front camera is no ordinary shooter because it uses the power of artificial intelligence. With AI, the camera recognises humans and automatically retouches the results to ensure your selfies are faultless.
A full day of power
The 3,400mAh capacity battery in the Huawei P Smart 2020 will keep you up and running throughout the day. When it comes to charging time, you have a USB Type-C charger, and the connection is symmetrical, so it is far easier to insert.
Huawei P Smart 2020 opinion: This Huawei smartphone is perfect for anyone who wants an Android phone without spending a lot of money. The screen and camera work well and make you think you are using a much more expensive phone. The P Smart 2020 is good-looking with an excellent all-round performance.
