The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is solid enough of a phone that it made me switch from the iPhone XS after years on iOS. The last time I tried to switch to Android with a Galaxy S8, I gave up after 2 days.

With a ~60% larger sensor, the camera is amazing with better optical bokeh, way better computational bokeh than the still-ridiculous iPhone portrait mode and way better low light performance. Despite Android phones being traditionally plagued with unreliable camera launch and shutter response times, taking unplanned quick snaps is surprisingly pleasant and usable without edits.
