The P40 is a flagship phone in almost every way, although if you're after a bit more performance in the camera department, and a sexier curved display, you'll need to look towards the P40 Pro, or the even newer P40 Pro+.
The P40 is a great affordable flagship phone in most respects. It has the best camera available at its price, outperforming the pricier iPhone 11 when it comes to versatility in particular, and its hardware and software come together better than we expected them to.
On the one hand, the P40's hardware innovations break new ground of what's expected of a flagship release. On the other hand, imposing a restriction on which apps you can and can't download ultimately weighs down an otherwise flawless handset.
I remain quite optimistic for Huawei and I'm sincerely looking forward to seeing its interface, as well as its app store, come to maturity. But as it stands, the Huawei P40 is not a smartphone that I would advise the average consumer to buy.
