You can’t ignore Huawei any more. With increasingly premium smartphones on the market, the Chinese company is having a very good go at challenging Samsung, LG and Sony. In fact, it now outsells Apple globally.

Exactly what the future holds for the company now that its been put on the US trade blocklist, and that Google and chip makers such as Intel and Qualcomm have pulled support, is unclear. The good news is that none of the phones in this round-up is affected outside the US, and existing Huawei phones will continue to get access to security updates, Google apps and services.

The company has flagship devices in its P and Mate lines that are among the best smartphones out there. The P series is slightly more mainstream thinking, while the Mates are often photo-minded phablets but the lines are beginning to blur. Luckily, we are left with excellent phones either way.

But a Huawei phone doesn’t have to be brand new to market. The older P10 models are still excellent phones, even if the P20 is very impressive. And now there’s a new P30 and P30 Pro, sitting atop of this very round up.

We also love the four versions of the Mate 20 series – each with different price, design and features.

The P Smart is a cheaper way into the Huawei world, and you may even want to look at an older P-series phone to save a lot of money. It depends if you like Huawei’s EMUI Android skin, as it changes the stock experience quite dramatically.

We are fans though – these days anyway – and Huawei has come from being a network equipment provider to a coveted consumer electronics brand in a matter of years. Mind you, it’s not short on cash.
