    Might wait for the Chinese version for lower price. Fantastic Phone though, beat samsung note9

    •  

      what Chinese version?

      •  

        I assume he means Chinese ROM, Grey Import.

      •  

        This phone will make a debut later on 25th Oct in China and will be priced cheaper than anywhere else.

        •  

          I suggest everyone to resist the urge and hold out until it comes out in Hong Kong as I've heard its gonna be around the HK$7000 mark which is ~AU$1250.

    •  

      How? I can't see how this is going to be better for a business user who uses the pen and other productivity tools. Cameras should be almost the same in many situations. Same display as well. Battery life of note is quite good.

    •  

      Will you be able to flash a global rom if the bootloader is permanently locked?

      I owned Chinese version of Huawei Mate 9 Pro and now I'm using the Honor 10. There are few issues so far I think You might need to think before get the Chinese version of Huawei phones.

      NFC seems have issue with Google pay, I only successfully paid once, then the NFC pay won't go through. Although phone app shows the pay animation but the EFTPOS would show fail. Google pay only can use for everyday rewards at moment.

      Doesn't support Google location history, also means you can't use Google fitness app and Google find my phone.

      The phone can't be locked remotely through find my phone. Huawei hicloud's find my phone seem can't be activated outside of China, and only Chinese Hicloud account supports find my phone, I tried to switch to Australian and that option just disappear. So basically you can't locate where it is if you lost, that's how I lost my Mate 9 Pro…

      Lack of the DRM that allows you play streaming services in HD like Netflix, Stan. OnePlus had this issue, but I don't think Chinese version of Huawei would get further update to fix that.

      Play store won't update itself.

      Can't set Google assistant as default assistant app. The built voice assistant is useless and can't be removed.

    How does this phone go against the pixel 3xl? I was pretty much sold on the pixel but this looks quite good as well

      Pixel is no where close to this beast.

        yeah mate, I just looked up some reviews and this phone looks incredible.

        It's fairly close in terms of camera. Unfortunately Huawei image processing sucks so they kind of wasted their top notch triple camera setup. For such overkill hardware I would expect them to leave Apple and Google in dust but in reality it's not. Just their main camera sensor size alone is huge compared to competitor, in theory it should be much better.

        • +11 votes

          Have a look at Dx0 or buy one to see for yourself. Huawei's camera absolutly outperforms any others including Apple, Samsung and Google. Unless Apple and Google stops being arrogant and using a tiny bit of the huge prpfit they make to buy some actual flagship cmos, Huawei refleshed its own record. Unlike Pixel, Huawei has some real stuff in its notch as well as the bumped cameras. There is no doubt that Huawei is the best in terms of camera. It's other specs are incredible as well. 7nm Kirin 980, 4200mah battery, inscreen fingerprint and 40w quick charge. And apple is still giving out 5w charger while google is still keeping that huge chin and notch. I must say, Huawei brings out more sincerity producing this phone.

            @lplsz: There's a big difference between what DXO says and what is actually better in real life… DXO has been a compromised rating system for a while now. Pixel 2 still stomps over everything less than a pixel 3 irl. I'm not a fanboy but I am a photographer who has had the best samsung and apple cameras and still go back to the ol pixel 2.

          •  

            @lplsz: I actually look at DXOmark and Xs Max is extremely close to P20 Pro in terms of grading. Pixel 2 is the same in terms of still photography.

            In fact I tested P20 Pro and Pixel 2 before buying Pixel 2 because yuck, P20 Pro managed to make the photos look worse with its impressive hardware. Huawei seriously need to improve its software. Pixel photo is usually truer to life in term of processing.

            I would say it's the same story with NOKIA Zeiss camera sensor. Impressive hardware (for the price) but sucky result due to software. There's a reason why Google still selling single main camera phone. Someone need to break Google monopoly on its advanced software. We would have much better result if Google do a triple camera setup or even more.

        •  

          We need comparison between the three phones LG V40, mate 20 pro and Pixel 3 XL

          •  

            @neonlight: DXOMARKS just released the LG G7's camera rating. You might want to check it out. I found it shocking because LG used to make amazing cameras for mobiles, but 83 points vs P20 pro's 109…

        •  

          The closest to a comparison with this phone is the P20 Pro which really kills most of the competition (including the Samsung 8/9 series, Apple iPhone X's AND the Pixel 2/3). I bought one for my dad and shots in comparison to my Note 8 is on another level especially in low light. It gets most of the shots right but there has been some occasions where the "AI Camera" fails to detect and optimise the colouring for a scene or situation and having to turn that feature off (the picture is still good without the optimisations). In those circumstances, it comes out rather funny in colours.

      •  

        In what respect though? Calling it a beast but no reason provided - you've got me convinced!

      •  

        The 20Pro is like the best phone camera since the Lumia 1020. For the casual every day user that just shoots in Auto most of these flagships are as good as each other. Even my old Lumia 950XL can capture nice photos.

    •  

      Better rams management if you like to game on your mobile

    •  

      The hardware specs for this beats pixel 3xl hands down. Hardware > software. Google needs to step up their game.

  •  

    I think this is the one that comes with a proprietary NanoSD storage?

    •  

      True, you can see it as a bonus as not MUch phone is providing tf card slot, ptherwise it can be a sim slot

    •  

      Hi JaxSantiago,
      Yes, the 2nd SIM slot for the Mate 20 Pro can be used as a NanoSD storage slot.

      •  

        So they now control the supply and pricing of memory cards that can be used in the phone. Nice way to make lots of money, or lose potential and return customers.

    • +1 vote

      Uses the same slot as second SIM and in a non standard Memory card size. Biggest killer.

      Why can't they make dual Sim with seperate MicroSD slot like Motorola G6?

  • +19 votes

    Why people buy phones for over $1,500.00 is beyond me :/

    • +3 votes

      Same question come up when people buy samsung and iphone

    • +35 votes

      Probably because they can replace $500 cameras, $500 ipods, $250 playstation portables all in one and get more daily / hourly usage than $1500 laptops etc?

      Gotta think of the overall time/usage/utility of things like this against other tech and $1500 starts to seem reasonable (as long as you're keeping it 3 years or so)

      • +3 votes

        Wow, gotta love the fervent downvoting for pointing out something completely logical and reasonable…

      •  

        So, doing the maths, let's say the phone costs (conservatively) $300 to manufacture. I am no marketer, but let's add $150 to cover marketing, packaging, distribution, etc and we're at $450.

        A comparable P&S camera would cost around $400 and that would likely lack the convenience features of being able to directly upload to OneDrive, Google Photos, etc.

        A PMP with that screen, access to the latest streaming services doesn't exist for under ~$200 (guessing)

        Car Navigation units are around $120

        And if you game, there's more money.

        It's really not that bad when you factor in everything, despite the mark-up on the manufacturing cost. It does replace a lot of devices, and I use my phone way more than anything else.

        • +4 votes

          Problem with trying to justify a $1500 phone by doing a shopping list of features is it doesn't account for the fact that a phone 1/3 or even 1/2 the price can also do those things probably close to if not as good (in some cases). Chances are many of those cheaper non-phone devices offer better experiences and in many case would outlive what one would expect a phone to do.

          Frankly as an iPhone X owner, its because I had the money and liked the device and felt it delivered a good experience. Just like no one needs a Ferrari or could live with a wardrobe of $5 shirts, sometimes purchases aren't all about maximising the dollar spent. While some people struggle with it, I can enjoy a device that gives a good experience even if the value is relatively poor from a dollar to feature ratio compared to what I can possibly get elsewhere. Ultimately when it comes to those $1500+ phones I think the ultimate answer will usually be "because I can" for most cases. I'm not sure phones in this price bracket are good value when there are great ones at much lower price points, but if you're happy to spend twice as more for something thats perceived as 20 or 30% better than the competition then go nuts. No different to most other markets that have diminishing returns on higher end goods be it electronics all the way down to your weekly groceries.

            You don't always carry your DSLR/Camera, GPS unit, Laptop replacement, <insert the device> with you on the street on when you are on holidays. Most people carry their phones with them most times. Those other devices are useless if they aren't on you when you need them (eg. capture the moment on a good camera). I went on holidays for 3 weeks and the only thing I carried was my $1400 Note 8 which did majority of the things I wanted to do including some damn good photo shots along with even working on documents and phone conferences overseas.

            •  

              @bchliu: I get that, but sub $1000 phones can do those things too and in many cases close to as well as the $1500-$2000 ones.

              •  

                @Smigit: But the Sub $1000 phones are no different to buying an entry level Canon DLSR 3000D vs the top end 1D. Both take pictures, but one just takes it much better. The Huawei is very much the best camera phone on the market right now and it's up to the customers to decide on average quality or the best quality that you can buy in 2018..

        It cannot replace my DSLR, Switch or PS4, and I don't need a iPod. I don't want a laptop neither therefore it's expensive for me

        •  

          Do you carry all of those out with you when you go out? Oh.. you carry your phone though right?

          Go ahead and have a budget one, dont even check out the flagships, they are not for you

      I think it's just not the competition that drives the prices of these gadgets over the roof. Inflation plays a heavy part as well and parts is not getting cheaper anyway. I know labour doesn't cost much especially in China so we can factor that but not as much.

        I didn't neg you but if I did, it would be your generalisation. Labour in China is NOT cheap anymore along with a relatively strong Chinese Yuan against the other currencies. Cost of Living in their capital cities is not far off Australia now to be honest. Hence you can't relate "Chinese = Cheap" anymore.

      1) I spend ~3-4 hours daily on my phone

        Cmon, let's be honest. #3 is debatable ;)

          The bigger the screen, the easier it is to read all the bargains on ozbargain and in turn buy more stuff you dont really need for a good price :)

        •  

          Apparently p0rn makes people happy therefore meets all 4 points and not productive

          Bigger screen means better viewing of details, and spending 3-4 hours is not health bro lol

          •  

            @neonlight: I know it's not, but sadly long commutes on the train makes it necessary. I also read/study on my phone so to me a bigger screen is better without resorting to carrying a separate device for this.

      I even mis-read the title as $151.80, didn't realise it until I saw this comment… my brain just couldn't process a phone that costs three times more than my first car :)

    •  

      may be because all in one?
      Decent Camera
      portable gaming device
      portable window 10 that you can connect to monitor; wireless projection
      powerbank wirelessly share your power with other
      3D scanning and 3D face unlock feature
      inscreen fingerprint
      AI translator
      fast charging

      but for $1500 phone, it does not come with headphone jack, how ridiculous.
      it does comes with wireless headphone during preorder i think.
      i wonder if the phone can recharge those wireless headphone.

      10 years ago when we all used our phones to only make calls and play Snake (god I love that game), I'd agree with you.

      Today, we basically do everything with our phones except the odd real life connection at home with the people we share a roof with.

      RRP. We don't pay RRP so why are you complaining ;)

      It can be sold?

    Hi Op, can you do some deal on Mate 10 pro, they were $670 around last few weeks. Thanks

    anyone knows where I can get my hands on a display set?

    Biggest omission is the 128 GB storage for this price with Dual Sim capability. My note 9 DUOS model has 512 GB with Dual Sim. I give Huawei prop for the other fantastic hardware features.
