    I'm interested in the P20 Pro because it still has an ir blaster, a fav of mine. Anybody know if it has an led for multicolor led notifications? That's my other favorite feature lacking in most new phones. I assume this will not work on Verizon? How about Tmobile?

    it has a multi-colour led indicator for notifications but I've only seen a couple of apps that offer the ability to assign specific colours.

    For the US you will want the international version. Do a search online for frequencies but I don't think it's 100% with Verizon or T-Mobile.

    Yes and no real warranty in US either apparently. The Mate 20 Pro just released looks even BETTER. I finally find a phone with every feature I want and they aren't officially made for ANY US provider. Just my luck.

    Well, I stand corrected on my thoughts about Huawei abandoning their hardware. While, their track record is not the best, they have improved greatly over the last couple of years. I sold my Mate 9 before the Oreo update, so I didn't realize they had kept up with that phone.
    This morning, to my surprise, my Honor Note 8 got the Oreo update. I never thought that would happen. Hopefully, Huawei will continue their support improvements in the future.

    Really great hardware. I love my Mate 9.
    Their take on Android is very similar to The iPhone OS look and feel.
    They tend to abandon their phones pretty early, regrading updates. They have gotten better with them recently, but they're update track record is still pretty bad overall.
    No idea what you're talking about, plenty of updates for my P20 Pro+previous Mate 10 Pro and Mate 9 backup phone just got an update last week. Great hardware+software and support overall, OP you won't regret going with Huawei esp. the Mate 20 series that just came out absolutely killer.

    All of those phones that you mentioned were released within the past two years. If you look back at their track record of keeping their phones up to date, especially security updates, you'll see that they've been pretty spotty, at best. But, like I said, they've gotten a lot better.

    Get the Mate 20 Pro, Face ID like facial recognition (but even more secure) in screen fingerprint sensor, 7nm SOC, Cat 21 LTE, 1.7Gbps Wifi, fast wireless charging, device to device wireless charging (your phone can charge other phones/smartwatches/earphones wirelessly) 40W Supercharge gets you to 70% in 30 min., improved triple cameras with new wide angle lens, wireless Desktop mode, etc. etc. In short this is the phone of the year and the one to get, it has it all, everything & more.

    You specifically mentioned Mate 9, my Mate 9 has had plenty of updates is on Oreo and just got an update last week so really if you get anything released after the Mate 9 support isn't an issue.

    Plenty of contracts available with my provider EE, plus if you act quickly you get a Huawei GT watch and wireless charger for free but I think the offer only runs til the 25th of October.

    Yeah, I know. I had a Mate 9 a while back. Sold it before it was updated to Oreo. I didn't realize that they havd kept it updated. I corrected myself above. I hope they continue to keep their phones updated. They make some really nice hardware.

    I think I'd order one a day or two before, just to make sure as your phone needs to be "pre ordered" to qualify for the freebies... You can actually order at any time beforehand but your new contract won't start til the day of delivery.. HTH, David.

    I know! I could either:
    1 Pay myself out of my existing contract.
    2 Buy the phone outright (minus the freebies) or
    3 Wait until May when my contract ends to get a new phone.
