Many people have been fascinated by the Huawei P30 Pro, including me, since the beginning. After 100 days with the Huawei P30 Pro, the day of the verdict arrived. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this smartphone? Here's what you need to know about Huawija's latest leading boat after that time together.
Benefits of Huawei P30 Pro
A versatile camera
P30 Pro once again confirms the promises of the day in the photo. Above the numbers (there are four rear sensor sensors: 40MP Super Spectrum, 20MP wide angle, 8MP periscope, ToF field depth sensor), the P30 Pro offers an intuitive, quick and easy application. use. Portrait, night shots and zoomes are no problem at all, but are the strong side of this smartphone. At the zoom level, the best results in terms of detail and no noise were obtained in 5x, but even with 10x photos taken at all are not bad at all … At P30 Pro, there is then a wide angle, which after Mate 20 Pro, finally reaches P series and this makes the photographic experience even more complete. I've always enjoyed the presence of a wide-angle lens on LG V smart phones, and finding the P30 Pro is a pleasure to me.
Compared to the P20 Pro, you can turn AI off and off by clicking, a function that I find very practical, especially in some landscapes such as green meadows (with similar colors that AI takes too much). I suggest that you look at the function that allows you to choose between standard colors, sharp and delicate (by opening the camera application you will find the icon in the upper left corner of the general settings).
The P30 Pro is a great day-to-day companion. The 4200 mAh battery never fails before the end of the day. I usually charge the Huawei P30 Pro next night at the office, and in some cases the smartphone still offers 30% of the billing.
Fast charging up to 40 W provides an additional boost when you need to turn on the smartphone just before you go. The P30 Pro also supports wireless charging up to 12 W and reverse charge, a feature I've never used before and which can be useful to help some friends.
With such a display, the P30 Pro offers a very good experience. The 6.47 "AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels is remarkable in terms of color, contrast and viewing angle, and even with sunglasses, you will not have a reading problem.
With a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio and a comma to reduce, the P30 Pro is perfect for playing and watching multimedia thanks to HDR10 and DCI-P3 color scales. adjust the temperature and color intensity, activate eye protection, and display a permanent, practical alternative to LED notifications that are not present on the P30 Pro. The screen is protected by the gorilla of glass 6, but I recommend using a protective film against possible scratches, my already shows …
Disadvantages of the Huawei P30 Pro
Facial recognition does not work in the dark
Identifying Face P30 Pro is not a problem. Unfortunately, Huawei has decided not to integrate a 3D Face Detection System, meaning you can not unlock the device in the dark, as is the case with Mate 20 Pro. I do not know about you, but I often want to unlock my smartphone face while I watch Netflix on my couch at home tonight. And in such situations, I'm sorry for the lack of 3D Face Detection Unlock …
An alternative is to unlock the fingerprint reader below the screen. This last method works smoothly, unless you have wet hands, but I personally think it's the best experience that 3D Face Detection offers. Too bad ….
Smartphone that suffers from heat
Made of glass and metal, it's easy to imagine how the P30 Pro can withstand high temperatures. Chassis and especially metal become very hot when the temperature rises. In those incredibly hot summer days when the temperature was above 30 ° C, my P30 Pro was hot even when it was hidden in the bag. Imagine the beach …
The ban imposed on the Huawei group can only cause some doubt when purchasing this smartphone. Main concern concerns software updates: P30 Pro will receive Android Q? The Android R?
Updates taken for granted for the lead ship launched in 2019, but for now we do not know how this story will end. The latest rumors raise the mood of those who already own the P30 Pro and those who plan to buy it: Huawei is working hard to secure the release of Android Q on its 11 devices, including the P30 Pro. For the time being, it is only certain that the P30 Pro will continue to receive monthly security updates and Android Q, but for larger ones the question remains.
After these 100 days together, I can say that I'm happy with the Huawei P30 Pro because, surprisingly, it's a smart phone that's nice to watch and perform (in our test you'll find more performance information). I would prefer a slightly more compact format, as if Mate 20 Pro or P20 Pro, but during those three months, I got used to its size, and even manipulating it on one hand is not a big deal.
If you decide to buy, you can be sure that you put in your pocket a smart phone that will allow you more than one day without worry, with Netflix and YouTube, and be able to capture the best of your unforgettable moments.
Of course, the question remains the question of USA / Huawei. Investing in top-of-the-range devices such as P30 Pro means long-term security on the update side, and there is currently no certainty about this side despite the manufacturer's promises. Personally I hope this situation will soon be unblocked because it would be a pity to deprive our market and users of a generally similar device. It will probably take some time in August to find out more, but if you still decide which product to buy, look at our list of the best smartphones on the market today:
