hey guys,

so the wifes phone not working anymore (don't ask why...it fell in the toilet pot..lol), so I am looking for a new phone for her.

Ive narrowed my choice down to the A70 over the A50. i am happy with that.

now i need to decide between the A70 or the huawei P20 pro. one thing that might make me reconsider NOT going with the P20 is the lack of the headphone jack. i am hoping that someone who has used both can tell me which one is better.

my wife, like all females (im guessing) loves to snap pictures, so that will definitely be a deal maker or deal breaker. which phone takes the best pics?

Also is it wise to get a Huawei with what happened withe happened with donald trump and china and how it affected google apps on chinese phones? will it mean that whatsapp and any google app cant be installed on it?

thanks all

The P20 Pro comes with a USB C headphone jack converter, so no worries on that score.

P20 Pro has a fantastic camera with 5x optical zoom, takes amazing photos.

P20 Pro has full access to the Google Play Store and services.

Mums got the P20 pro and i have the P20, fantastic phones. P20 pro's camera is crazy good even especially in night mode.

Some advice, dont use the fast charger as it can degrade the battery over time. A 1-2 amp charger is what I recommend as a slow charge is always better than a fast one.

i gave my wife the choice, and shes been a samsung user, so she went with the Samsung A70 over the P20 pro.

cant wait till i get my next phone..... ASUS ROG2! or a XIAOMI! love xiaomi, which is what i have now. more features on my old xiaomi than on my wifes new phone. but just something about the ASUS that does it for me.

looks like something i stole from the Predator!
