Huawei Mate 40 Pro review

Expert review

Unfortunately, this phone may not be receiving security updates for much longer - see ‘Should I buy it’ in the full review for more. The Mate 40 Pro is one of Huawei’s best-equipped smartphones, rivalling the likes of Apple and Samsung with its high-resolution display, high-spec camera setup, and staggeringly high price. On paper it certainly has a lot to offer, but, like many Huawei phones, it’s missing Google Mobile Services that underpin many popular apps. Read our full review of this phone to see how the hardware performs.
