Firstly I'm happy for getting this mobile. This product from huawei is very good design. Camera and performance is too awesome. Weight less mobile phone fast charging battery, processing also good. One of the best mobile i bought in this year.
Huawei, you have provided good hardware but you might have forgot to refine/optimize the software. Please roll out some OTA patches asap and fix the overall software experience.
1. Camera: Lenses are good but post 'software' processing is not up to the mark. No auto-HDR in 2019 is unacceptable. Videos severely lack in details. Secondary 8MP-Wide lens produces way more stable footage compared to 24MP primary lens. No portrait mode provided with front camera. AI doesn't work as well as it's supposed to, etc. etc.
[ALL IN ALL - HUAWEI NEED TO REFINE THE CAMERA 'SOFTWARE' EXPERIENCE A LOT ON THIS]
2. Processor: If possible, please overclock the processor a little bit so that we could differentiate this device from the cheaper ones like Y9, 8X & 10 Lite.
3. Please unlock NFC for the Indian (MAR-LX2) variant, I know the Chinese (MAR-L21MEA) variant has NFC.
Will keep updating if I find more bugs. I know Huawei doesn't disappoint their customers in terms of software updates.
*** SPOILER: THE BACK IS MADE OUT OF REAL GLASS, IT IS NOT POLYCARBONATE/PLASTIC. SAMSUNG A50 HAS A PLASTIC BACK, NOT THIS ONE.

Very poor quality of product. I bought this product because of very high specification of camera but b but I am very disappointed. Camera quality is very poor. I am bit recommended to by this phone. Very poor response from amazon technical support team. They simply tell to check the performance thro application. This will not solve the issue.
