• Huawei P40 Pro+ vs. Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra: battle of the super phones

    14 days ago - By Pocket-lint

    2020 is clearly the year of the ultra-premium super phone, with more than one manufacturer now offering a big, spec beast of a device that's also quite a lot more expensive than the traditional premium flagship. For Samsung, that beast is the S20 Ultra. For Huawei, it's the new P40 Pro+. Unfortunate naming perhaps, but one that makes sure we know it's not just Pro , it's extra Pro. With a spec sheet that reads like a tech nerds wish list, can Huawei's latest all-singing all-dancing smartphone compete with the best? Design
    S20 Ultra: 166.9 x 76 x 8.8 mm

    Huawei P40 initial review: the compact almost-flagship?

    14 days ago - By Pocket-lint

    To say Huawei has had a tumultuous year would be something of a gross understatement. Having spent a good number of years building its reputation globally as one of the big name smartphone makers, even working its way into the top three manufacturers, and then having its ability to partner with Google taken away from it, was a little like getting the rug pulled from under its feet. Since May last year, Huawei has doubled down on its own platform, and started trying to build up an ecosystem for itself while it still waits to be able to work with Google officially again. That's meant for the...

    Huawei P40 release date, price, news and everything you need to know

    14 days ago - By TechRadar

    Huawei has had a tumultuous six months since the unveiling of the Huawei P30 series, but it is now showing off its next top-end flagship phone in the form of the Huawei P40. The Huawei P40 family features three different devices; the Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro and, a new addition to the line-up for 2020, the Huawei P40 Pro Plus. These three handsets feature top-end specs to try and combat the Samsung Galaxy S20 , Google Pixel 4 , and devices like the upcoming iPhone 12 and OnePlus 8. But keep in mind that Huawei's app selection is lacking compared to those alternatives. Below we've...

    Huawei announces the P40 and tries to stay relevant without Google

    14 days ago - By TechCrunch

    Huawei has unveiled new flagship phones today, the P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro+. These are beautiful phones with great specs. But it would only take you a few minutes to realize that there's something odd with them. There is no Gmail, no Google Maps and no Google Play Store.
    Last year, the U.S. government restricted U.S. firms from maintaining a business relationship with Huawei. Even though Huawei can only release Google-free phones, the company isn't standing still. It is still releasing flagship phones at a normal pace. Some day, Huawei might be able to leverage Google's services again...

    It's that time of the year again - Huawei and its partner Leica are starting a new chapter in smartphone photography. The smartphone manufacturer also did much to improve the hardware on the front of its P40 flagships and it hit a new milestone in wireless charging speeds.
    Huawei P40 Pro
    The Huawei P40 Pro takes inspiration from both the P30 and Mate 30, but surpasses them both in terms of features. Huawei's usual drive to perfect the camera is as strong as ever, but this year the company did much to improve the screen as well.

    Huawei isn't letting the lack of Google services get in the way of a great phone.
    The last 12 months have been tumultuous for Huawei. The Chinese manufacturer was put on the U.S. Entity List over a year ago , effectively preventing U.S. organizations from dealing with the device maker.
    Huawei plugged away nevertheless, launching the Mate 30 series without Google Mobile Services, instead offering its own alternative - Huawei Mobile Services. That turned out to be a poor substitute for the lack of services like Gmail, Chrome, YouTube, and others, Huawei is positioning its AppGallery as a...

    Huawei's best phone ever tries to win back the West without Google services.
    It's a strange time. The world isn't really paying attention to the machinations of tech companies, or at least beyond how they can all contribute to the distribution of medical equipment and help save lives.
    Here at home, I've been stuck mostly inside going on two weeks, trying to be careful about where I go, whom I talk to, and what surfaces I touch. And more than ever, my phone is my lifeline, the thing I cling to like a physical manifestation of my anxiety. It needs to work - it needs to do everything I need...

  • The Royole Flexpai 2 is a true flagship foldable smartphone

    14 days ago - By AndroidPhoneFans

    When all the fuss was surrounding Samsung and Huawei's foldable phones, a company going by the name Royole actually beat everyone to the punch with the launch of the Royole Flexpai, the first company to launch a foldable smartphone. While the device was not particularly well-received amongst those who got their hands on it, the company is back with a second attempt.
    Dubbed the Royole Flexpai 2, this is the company's second attempt at making a foldable smartphone, which they claim to have improved upon by using a third-gen Cicada Wing design that offers a smaller crease in the display and...

    Outside China, Android isn't Android without Google

    14 days ago - By The Verge

    Illustration by William Joel / The Verge
    The tech story that made the biggest impact on me yesterday was Sam Byford's “ Living a Google-free life with a Huawei phone .” In the run up to the launch of Huawei's new flagship P40 line, he got himself a Mate 30 Pro and used it to see what Android is like sans Google. This is, of course, something untold millions of people in China do every day, but outside China Huawei falls in a weird zone where it doesn't have its local China services nor Google services.
    The result, as Sam writes, is weird. But what struck me the most is how essential Google...
