A Week with the P30 Pro

  • Published: 11 April 2019
  • Dave2D review of Huawei P30 and P30 Pro. The night camera is lit, the 50X zoom is gimmicky. Solid phone but i dunno if it beats the Samsung Galaxy S10 devices

    Fast phones with amazing cameras are made by every single company but are the P30 and P30 Pro enough to compete? The kirin processor feels very fast but the software needs some work still.

      P30 Pro for me. Better battery life and I'm just bored of Samsung phones. I don't think you can go wrong with either device though - they're both equally great but for different reasons.

    The phone is nothing short of excellent. I have a Note 9 too and it makes the Note seem slightly outdated with some of its capabilities (which it obviously will be given the relative age of each of them). My wife has an S10 and I think the P30 Pro is better. Agree about the 50x zoom though ;)

                I think your reviews are generally objective. But for this one, try using Samsung for 6 months with a lot of apps installed then you'll see why people move to Huawei. Samsung would be a better choice if it doesn't turn unbearably slow after a while.

                            I got my s10 2 days ago. I´m returning that shit, because the battery life is absolutely pathetic and the fingerprint scanner is a piece of shit. I rescanned my thumb maybe 5 times and this shit won´t ever unlock on first try. Getting P30 PRO.

                              Aside from Samsung Galaxy S10, all other Android phones are too focused on promoting certain hardware and neglecting the overall performance of the phone through better software

                                And maybe could you help me, which one is better sounding with the same headphone? S10e or P30?

                                P30 Pro still the king...The camera is superior. OIS , better aperture, better wide angle lens (add to that the longer zoom).
                                I do hate the curved screen on the P30 Pro and that's the main reason I don't buy it.

                                          I have a mate20 pro and a galaxy s9. I use my mate more and if i had to chose i would chose the mate 100 time out of 100. If you like talking photos huawei is the way to go. But i also love my superior video and slow mo video on my galaxy.

                                                  P30 is better on paper and S10 is better on payment.

Decades ago, someone told me that Fuji 35mm film was more targeted at the Asian market. I asked our company’s graphic artist about the comment and he said he worked with Japanese colleagues who could tell subtle differences between pearls due to the way their eyes worked, as opposed to other nationalities. Thanks for the review.

Let's wait for mate 30 pro later this year.....hope Huawei will change optical fingerprint sensor to something similar to Samsung, it does not work very well at low light environment and apparently you cannot use face ID at that condition too, it's frustrating to keep pressing the sensor....other than that, I love my mate 20 pro!

Nearly all high-end features as gimmicky. For most people... you don't need the high-resolution screens, the latest processors, any of these cameras, etc. For the vast majority of people, you'd be fine with a mid-ranged device. If you are looking at a flagship device... it is because some feature is important to you and you want the device to last several years.

                                                                              So... you pick those features which are best of you. That could be the camera, or battery life, or fast charging, or reverse charging, or desktop/docking experience on the P30 Pro. It could be the higher resolution screen, headphone jack, or software on the S10. It's up to each person. If none of those are killer features for you... get a mid-ranged device.

I called Apply (took me More than an hour), they repaired it, I costs me about $100 . You wouldn't believe iPhone X hardware is so poor. I wonder how many iPhone X have the same quality issue. At least I reported one to you.

                                                                                        The camera sensors have more yellow pixels, because those absorb something like double the light. Perhaps that has something to do with the tinting.
