Why tho? Doesn't the p20 have stronger performance and still a good camera?

I guess it depends on what you're wanting to do. Pixel 3a has OLED screen, headphone jack and still the best rated camera and google software. Huawei P20 is 2 years old now and will be out of OS update soon. You're stuck with EMUI (which isn't terrible since I'm on a P20 Pro right now) and you can't root it. I really actually hate the front fingerprint reader placement (it's too low) and prefer reader on the back. I doubt in a day to day basis you'll notice the performance difference (admittedly the P20 probably will boot apps faster), but if you play video games then you might want to consider a OnePlus7 from aliexpress or something.

EMUI has the nasty habit of killing apps when you don't want it to though.

It's a nice phone, with a great camera - but it could be had for less than a quarter of this price last year at Black Friday via Koodo. ($305 tab, minus $150 in bill credits).

Is the camera on the non-pro that good though? I've heard the AI software is too aggressive, resulting in kind of artificial looking photos.

Not sure - it was the pro that I was referring to. Great camera.

Oops, sorry. I got confused.
