Something I never cease to be amazed by however is the fact that, on Amazon right now, the Mate 10 Pro is £380 and the P20 Pro is £799! These are both sold and delivered by Amazon too, so it's not...

That pic makes it look a lot like dull paint from sanding so perhaps they just had some combination of filler/glaze/wax over the top covering it up. What kind of repair did it have done exactly? Does...
