What’s Your Opinion?
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro has got face to unlock support but still, there’s a fingerprint sensor built into the display for efficient security.
Fueled by a decent 4200mAh battery combined with a regular 66W charger, it can easily last for a day. The Huawei SuperCharge brings it to 100% in just 45 minutes.
However, it’s disappointing to note that there’s no wireless charger.
At €1200, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is an ultimate camera phone. However, one has to learn to live without Google support.
