Huawei's P20 Pro named "Best Smartphone of 2018" ~ Android Coliseum

Huawei's P20 Pro named "Best Smartphone of 2018"

So the day before my birthday I got a nice surprise from Huawei, the new P20 Pro.


My first camera with Leica glass that I had been coveting since I first picked up a camera.  Neat.

It's been a couple days since I've made it my daily driver, so I don't have a fully formed opinion of it yet, but the European Hardware Association apparently has.  They just named it the "Best Smartphone of 2018".

How you can say best of a year that's barely half over is beyond me, but I can see where they're coming from.  Based on other new phones from the year this stands above, especially because of that camera (still highest rated by DxO currently).

Camera aside, it's been a pretty kick ass phone so far.  Great screen, cool features (IR, IR, IR!!!).

I'll have a full review hopefully readied up by the weekend, but if you have any questions for me on why this group thought it was the best of 2018, just drop me a line.
