    I have a question, sorry I am not very techy. Apple has a lot of iOS updates and it was mentioned that this phone can handle up to five years of updates. Does that mean the Huawei Mate Pro 20 won't last as long (five years) since it doesn't update as often?

    I prefer the aesthetics of the mate 20 pro, the max looks a little cumbersome and is very heavy. But the Mate pro looks extremely modern and sleek. I am very integrated into the Apple Ecosystem and would find it difficult to move over android full time, but if i did move over at this present time, then the 'Mate' would definitely be my phone of choice.

    My next phone is gonna be Huawei. Went from Apple to Samsung and still not satisfied. Picked up a Huawei recently and felt a connection. Apple and Samsung are monopolies who overcharge for their phones because they could…until now! Huawei is honest in their pricing and their innovation. Best bang for the Buck without doubt!

    Why is there a chin. My Xs max has no chin. Why do all androids have chins and iPhones don’t. It annoys so much androids have useless chins. Just why

    I have the Mate 20 Pro and I can say that the face ID doesnt work half the times. so I wouldnt get it if youre in to the whole face unlock thing.


    I absolutely love this phone !!>>> I wasn’t planning on getting it but when I saw it in person and played with it my jaw dropped . Absolutely amazing !! Super easy to use . I thought I wouldn’t get used to not having the home button , the thought scared me but it’s super simple to go back home. The screen is huge! The battery life is super long . Super clear videos , and the pictures WOW Amazing!!!! I love it !!! Best purchase ive made!!

    Apple Phones: Can be sold by trading your apple phone to a new phone in a way cheaper way
    Huawei Phones: Cannot be sold + Must instantly buy the phone with a higher price

    Apple wins this challenge 😀
