Unlocking (rooting)[edit]


The performance of the Mate 20 models with identical CPU and GPU and clock frequencies, are very close. Theoretically, due to its lower screen resolution, the Mate 20 has a slight advantage especially in graphics intensive applications. The performance of the Mate 20 Lite likely falls far below that of the flagship models with an older CPU and GPU.


The Mate 20 series' major competitors include the OnePlus 6T and Xiaomi Mi 8 in China. Other rivals globally include the Apple iPhone XS Max, Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as well as the Google Pixel 3 XL.


The Pro variant was the most widely reviewed of the Mate 20 series. The Pro variant of the Mate 20 series received mostly positive reviews. The Verge praised the battery life, performance, display, design and facial recognition. The rear camera system was described as being on par with other flagship smartphones. However, the phone's software was criticized; Savov complained about the numerous bugs of the EMUI 9 operating system.[6] CNET also reviewed the unit favorably.[7]
