Every Android phone should have this HUAWEI P20 Pro feature

The HUAWEI P20 Pro is here bringing a whole range of new features and while most have been revealed, this is one feature we think every Android smartphone should have! Which is it? Find out here!

Essential, Sharp, and Apple all have something in common. They were the first companies to adopt the notch, carving out an extra sliver of screen real estate and popularizing  the design in current smartphones. Like it or not, the notch is here to stay. Companies like OnePlus already revealed it’ll offer a notch in its upcoming OnePlus 6.

The notch is a little like Marmite — you either love it or you hate it. I’ve used the iPhone X for a few months and can safely say I’m not the biggest fan of it. To my dismay, the HUAWEI P20 Pro also brings the notch, but you can turn it off.

The phone’s display settings menu includes options for the notch. Here you can actually turn it off, disabling the extra pixels above the regular display and rounding the corners to make it look like a regular phone screen.

Personally, I like the look of it both ways. Over the last few days, I’ve alternated between having the notch and disabling it (as we work on our full HUAWEI P20 Pro review). What is most apparent, however, is that there’s no reason not to have this feature. The notch is a polarizing and contentious topic amongst Android smartphone fans. A software feature like this could be the simplest solution to serve both parts of the market.
