Huawei P30 Pro

No handset is the absolute best at everything, but the Huawei P30 Pro is an exceptional smartphone by many objective metrics.
The Huawei P30 Pro is an excellent high-end smartphone and earns a high rating of 9.6/10. As a relatively expensive phone (~$1200), its value (tech for the price) score isn’t very high (4.5/10), but that’s to be expected in that market segment. Huawei made very sensible choices as it focuses on buyers who want the overall best camera performance (10/10) and battery power (10/10), while the display quality, thinness or weight may not be as high as a priority.
  • Stunning color options and trendy design, water-resistant
  • Excellent AMOLED screen with a tiny notch
  • Fast under-display fingerprint reader
  • Great battery life
  • Flagship-grade performance
  • Class-leading daylight and low-light camera performance
  • Unmatched 5x optical zoom lens
  • Super fast wired and wireless charging
  • No 3.5mm audio port
  • No 4K at 60fps video capture
  • No stereo speakers
  • Selfie camera is fixed-focus
  • Huawei's NM memory cards are still far from mainstream
Camera - 9.6
Display - 10
Battery - 9.1

Huawei has really hit its stride and is once again having the rest of the phone makers playing catch up. It was the maker to make the dual-camera trendy. Then it made the triple-setup cool. The ultra-wide-angle snapper from the Mate 20 series turned out to be way more successful than LG’s and many others are following suit now.

But Huawei has made another jump in mobile photography with the quad-camera setup.

ChinaGadgets verdict

The Huawei P30 Pro not only has an impressive camera, but is also a very good smartphone. But of course it’s not perfect either, so here’s the negative again. The display is even more curved than that of the S10, there is only one mono speaker, EMUI delivers too much bloatware, the memory expansion is only possible via Nano Memory Card and it has no headphone connection.

GsmArena verdict

Huawei is already turning into the cameraphone benchmark for the whole industry. And the Huawei P30 Pro is exactly the next big thing everyone will be looking to beat.

But don’t get us wrong – while photography is the Huawei P30 Pro’s forte, it still excels at everything that you’d need from a modern smartphone – design, screen, performance and gaming, even battery life. It may not be without omissions, but those are much easier to forgive when you have that many strengths.
