Review of Huawei P40

Huawei's flagship P-series is one of the most popular worldwide. The devices have been winning more and more fans for a generation now, and there's a reason why. The models are excellent camera phones with maximum performance. Although Google services are absent in the Huawei P40, the latter can be compensated by downloading identical ones from Huawei's own App Gallery store. 

Design

In 2020, Huawei's designers have gone with the recently popular massive black rectangle that houses the main camera unit. We see a similar solution here. However, that's not all. Now the front cameras are cut into the screen. Forget about the 2019 "drop".
