    so changed from 7 plus too 8 plus late Feb Ever since had issues uploading VR tracks to social hiking app .if I do 10m and 3000ft ascent it records that but when it’s uoloaded it’s now 10.3 and 6775ft. Tried every thing and everybody the mighty apple too

    So son has found a deal that at next to no cost will get me a Huawei p20 pro. Thoughts on this model anyone been using one. I am reluctant as I use an iPad and air book ? ( small Apple labtop thing). But I can’t get this resolved

    So thoughts please

    Love mine. Only had it 3 days. Not sure about the apple thing as I'm a Windows guy.

    Night shot on the camera is epic. Battery excellent.

    Both handheld 4 second exposures. Not really played with raw files yet on the 40mb sensor.

    I'm just about to buy one I think, TBH, purely for the camera ability. Being able to shoot Raw on an F1.8 lens really appeals.

    Just waiting to see what prospective deals are going to be coming out and whether the new Mate 20 Pro (out in Oct) will be a significant step up in terms of battery life.

    Hi Pete ref battery I read this one has a 4000 meh battery are saying the mate 20 pro is bigger still ?

    Apparently, yes. There's some leaked info about....also has some better cell saving software. Bigger screen, curved edges (that I don't really like TBH) higher def screen, which may offset the new bigger battery. Don't know if the camera will be changed at all.

    Some of the cell saver tech is good on these phones.

    My Ulefone Power 3 in flight mode with GPS tracking did 9 days with battery (6000mah - so not meh Pete) and went down to 22% battery left.

    My S7 manages a day and a bit (3000mah)

    I vowed never to go back to a contract phone but the camera made me do it. Nothing wrong with my power 2 other than the camera is a bit meh (see what i did there) :D

    Power is now relegated to order checking when working as my daughter refused it as a handmedown as she wants a Huawei too. Shes in for a long wait lol

    I had the mate 10 pro but could not get on with the 18:9 screen size. Their H/W ratio is different to others formats and I found many apps/pages did not fill the screen properly.
    Hopefully that is something they have sorted for the P20.

    It akso felt too big for my pockets which I am now confused by as it appears to be pretty much the same size as the power 5 I replaced it with.

    Camera was superb though.

    You have a power 5? What do you think of it?

    its still long and thin but i love it. can get my thumb all the way over the screen which i couldnt do with the power without slightly tilting in my hand. Native camera aspect is still 4:3 though which is the same as my main camera preference. Apps display perfectly though. mine is identical in size ish with the power 2 so im not noticing much difference other than easier thumb reach lol
