Rogers told me they dont carry twilight, however their website says they do so not sure what's going on.

Does anyone know where I can buy the twilight version in Toronto?

Also Does anyone know if the p20 pro will work well in a house indoors with poor lighting?
I saw a video where they took a picture in a pitch black room and the photo still turned out pretty good!

Edit:
here's the video

Around 3:30 he tests in poor lit room and pitch black

Got my P20 Pro last weekend! Loving it so far, Definitely suggest checking out Nova Launcher and Power Shade to give it a stock android feel with more customization.

I got mine yesterday. I have Nova Launcher installed. I didn't know about Power Shade. Thanks for the suggestion

Edit. So after installing Power Shade I noticed that my off-screen navigation button (ie using the home button instead of the virtual buttons) for navigation stopped working. After uninstalling Power Shade, the button works correctly again. So unfortunately I cannot use this app.

How much more does the Mate 20 Pro cost over P20 Pro? It outlasted another cell used as a stopwatch in a battery screen on time test.

IIRC from Rogers the outright price is $1,299.

So $300 more.

For me, Videotron wanted $300 more for the Mate on contract. The Mate did come with the free watch - so I suppose I could have sold it and recouped most of the $300 difference. Oh well.

I experienced this exact same problem. It seems to mess with the fingerprint settings when the Accessibility permission is granted. I even paid for the pro version before I found out the issue. Great app, but not good compatibility when used with the off-screen navigation setting.

After seeing the recent #gluegate issues with the Mate 20 Pro, I'm going to happily stick with my P20 Pro.

I did not believe it so I did the same thing in my furnace room lights off. The photo does show some noise (obviously) but the detail is incredible. And no, I did not have to hold the phone steady for 4 sec.

You don't need to hold the camera steady because night mode is not taking a 4-second exposure. Instead, its taking a series of photos at different exposures and merging them together.

FYI to anyone who bought the P20 or P20 Pro recently on Virgin Mobile, they now come with the Huawei Watch 2... just like the Mate 20 Pro.

I basically spent $400 on a $55 plan and got the excellent P20 Pro and a watch along with it. Good deal.
