Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei’s smartphones are known to have some of the best cameras in the business, and with their new flagships they’re set to take things to the next level, we are nasphones.com and this is our Huawei P30 Pro Review .

Huawei P30 Pro

the Huawei P30 Pro comes with a new and updated design, it’s still all glass with an aluminum frame, but with this large curved screen it looks like it could be from huawei’s mate series instead .

Huawei P30 Pro Review

it’s a bit different from the regular Huawei P30 which has a flat screen and a smaller battery, the Huawei P30 Pro is also missing the pro models ip68 waterproofing and brings a different camera setup .

Huawei P30 Pro Review1

but both phones have awesome color schemes that really catch the eye, Huawei P30 Pro is just the traditional black but it still looks quite stunning, of course it does collect fingerprints quite easily .

Huawei P30 Pro Review3

with those curves and tapered edges the phone says comfortably in the hand and doesn’t feel clunky, it really is slippery though, so be careful .

Huawei P30 Pro Review3

with it I have to mention that the camera bump is quite big and way off center, if you enjoy using your phone on a desk you might want to put a case on .

Huawei P30 Pro Review4

it the Huawei P30 Pro curved screen is the largest we’ve seen on the P series so far even bigger than the Huawei Mate 20 pro’s, it’s a 6.5 inch AMOLED with a 1080p resolution and it looks gorgeous .

Huawei P30 Pro Review5

Huawei has gone to some effort to minimize the round notch cut out for the selfie cam, it’s much smaller than last year, but you still have the option to mask it with a black bar .

Huawei P30 Pro Review6

to minimize the bezel above the notch Huawei has replaced the traditional earpiece with some new tech called acoustic display, the sound is produced by vibrations under the display and it actually sounds pretty good regardless of where your ear is placed .

Huawei P30 Pro Review7

we didn’t notice much sound leakage either, the drawback of this system is that they had to do away with the stereo speakers this year, you only get a bottom firing one, it’s a bummer, but it’s still scored an excellent mark now loudness test and the sound quality is rich and crisp .

Huawei P30 Pro Review8

another sacrifice for the notches sake is that they’ve done away with the advanced sensors for face unlock, with only the selfie cam it is much less security use .

Huawei P30 Pro Review9

but the result of all of this is that you have more screen space and watching content on the Huawei P30 Pro is quite satisfying, the picture is pretty sharp at 400 PPI and it spills around the edges of the screen .

Huawei P30 Pro Review11

Plus as an AMOLED you get those nice deep blacks, colors are decently accurate as well, brightness is quite impressive 517 nits in manual mode and up to 605 nits in auto mode and bright conditions . Read More : Huawei Mate 20 Lite

Huawei P30 Pro Review11

legibility out in the Sun is excellent, you can’t enable an always-on display too, so you never be left wondering about the time or notifications .

Huawei P30 Pro Review12

this year you have an under display fingerprint scanner at the bottom, it isn’t always on, you need to either tap the screen or live the phone to show the sensor icon .

but is really quite fast and reliable even faster than the Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s, there’s no headphone jack on the Huawei P30 Pro so to plug in you’ll need a USBC dongle .

Huawei P30 Pro Review13

unfortunately we didn’t get an official adapter with the phone so we couldn’t test the quality, but when I plugged in with another dongle it sounded pretty good .

Huawei P30 Pro Review14

you get a lot of onboard storage here either 128 or 256 gigs, it is expandable through the hybrid slot if you have one of Huawei’s proprietary nano memory cards but these are still kind of hard to come by .

Huawei P30 Pro Review15

the interface of the Huawei P30 Pro is Huawei’s new emui 9.1 over android 9 PI, with version 9.1 emui has a new file system, it increases the speed that files can be read and reduces the storage taken up by system files . Read More : Huawei watch GT

the benefits aren’t so clear when you’re using the phone but tests show a noticeable increase in storage speed, since the Huawei P30 Pro has an IR blaster you can control appliances through the smart remote app .

Huawei P30 Pro Review18

and if you offer gesture navigation is the same as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s swipe up and hold for the task switcher, swipe from the left or right edge of the screen to go back and swipe up to go home .

Huawei P30 Pro Review19

keep in mind that with Google Apps, the back gesture replaces actions that you normally get by swiping from the edge, not always ideal .

Huawei P30 Pro Review20

just like the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei P30 Pro runs on the kirin 980 chipset, you can also choose between 6 or 8 gigs of ram, performance overall is awesome and like other recent volley phones the Huawei P30 Pro comes with GPU turbo 2.0, which optimizes performance and smoothes out frame rates for a few supported games .

Huawei P30 Pro Review21

the Huawei P30 Pro has a large 4200 mAh battery, the same capacity as the May 20 pro, battery life however is better as scored an endurance rating of a hundred hours now proprietary tests .

Huawei P30 Pro Review22

may be due to a more power efficient screen and don’t worry this large battery doesn’t take long to charge thanks to the 40 watt super charging, the bundled charger got us from 0 up to 70% in 30 minutes, awesome .

Huawei P30 Pro Review23

there’s also support for 15 watt fast wireless charging and with the reverse wireless charging feature, you can use the Huawei P30 Pro to top-up other devices, even another phone one . Read More : Huawei P smart 2019

Huawei P30 Pro Review24

of the key features of the Huawei P30 Pro is the all-new quad camera setup on the back, the top one is the 20 megapixel ultra wide-angle cam, in the middle is a 40 megapixel main cam, which has OIS and a new color filter, in the third is an 8 megapixel periscope telephoto cam with OIS, off to the side is a tof camera for depth sensing .

Huawei P30 Pro Review25

the periscope camera is quite cool and the square you see isn’t the actual sensor, is part of the mirror setup which are fracks light to the sensor, which this off to the right, this allows for an extra long zoom lens without making the phone too thick .

Huawei P30 Pro Review26

even though the main cam is 40 megapixels since it uses quad Bayer technology the default output is 10 megapixels, there is a very high level of detail even in complex areas, exceptional dynamic range, accurate colors, superb contrast, great corner sharpness and overall excellent rendition .

Huawei P30 Pro Review27

if you want you can shoot in 40 megapixels, the photos look mostly upscaled so expect them to be soft, but sometimes you will actually get more resolution .

Huawei P30 Pro Review28

20 megapixel shots from the ultra wide-angle camera look good, improved over the Mate 20 Pro, there is some corner softness but there is enough resolve detail, true to life colors, low noise levels and great dynamic range .

Huawei P30 Pro Review29

and since it has autofocus, you can use the ultra webcam to shoot in super macro mode, for subjects as close as 2.5 centimeters, pretty neat . Read More : Huawei Mate 10

Huawei P30 Pro Review30

let’s check out some 10 megapixel shots from the telephoto cam, at 5 times optical zoom the results are spectacular, they match the high quality of the main camera and you get excellent optical stabilization .

Huawei P30 Pro Review31

switch to the 10 times zoom and you start to lose some detail, it seems mostly digital, about the same as if you zoom and crop to 5 times photo .

Huawei P30 Pro 1

you can go up to a total of 50 times digital zoom here and while these don’t look all that great you can use the future to spy on the neighbors or something .

Huawei P30 Pro Review33

portrait shots have taken with the main cam and the tof sensor, these are some of the best portraits we’ve seen from a phone, huawei nailed the subject separation and the resolved detail is excellent .

low-light image quality is about the same as on the Huawei Mate 20X, however due to the brighter exposure the Huawei P30 Pro is able to achieve the same exposure level with a higher shutter speed, this means it’s a lot less likely to ruin a shot due to camera shake .

Huawei P30 Pro Review34

the photos we took have an even exposure well-preserved highlights and overall great dynamic range, noise was never an issue even in the shadows and nighttime colors were preserved very well .

you can even shoot with the 5 times zoom camera in low-light, the results are not as bad as you’d expect with a smaller aperture .

night mode is really one of the key selling points of Huawei’s cameras, it works just like before, producing bright handheld nighttime photos .

Huawei P30 Pro Review35

it captures several photos with different exposures and stacks them, to produce a more evenly lit scene and in the process is able to combine the sharpest areas of those photos .

it improves image quality regardless of which of the three cameras you use but the difference is most striking with the ultra wide-angle cam .

for selfies you have a 32 megapixel F/2.0 front-facing cam, there’s no autofocus on this one, but it still does a very good job, dynamic range is excellent and there’s good sharpness, nice colors and more than enough detail . Read More : Huawei Mate 9

Huawei P30 Pro Review36

for video recording you can shoot in up to 4k@30fps, no 60fps here, the main cam has both oh is NDIS, and is the most stable option if you’re moving .

4k footage from the main camera is very good the dynamic range is stellar, the colors are true-to-life and contrast is excellent, there’s plenty of resolve detail too, though we’ve seen flagships do a bit better .

if you shoot with the ultra wide cam there’s no optical stabilization, you only have eis which is always on, looks pretty smooth here in 4k, quality wise the ultra wide 4k footage isn’t quite as good .

Huawei P30 Pro Review37

the picture has less resolved detail, the dynamic range is average and the colors are a bit oversaturated, the telephoto cam has only OIS which works great for following a subject .

if you try walking however it will be jerky, 4k videos from the telephoto camera have the same great dynamic range, colors and contrast as the main cam and the zoom is really quite impressive, but the videos have only an average amount of resolved detail .

finally let’s take a look at some night time video taken with the main cam, the results are fantastic easily comparable to the high quality of night time still shots, there’s a lot of resolved detail, low noise even exposure and brilliant colors .

Huawei P30 Pro Review38

so that’s the Huawei P30 Pro, overall it brings what most people are looking for from a flagship phone, a large AMOLED display, good-looking and waterproof build, top-notch performance excellent battery life and a versatile set of cameras, they’re probably the best cameras you can buy right now in a smartphone and a great choice to bring on a vacation .

Huawei P30 Pro Review39

as for downsides it’s tough to say, Huawei to take away the advanced face ID and the stereo speakers that we had last year, and there’s no headphone jack, but we weren’t really expecting one here anyway . Read More : Huawei Mate 20

Huawei P30 Pro Review40

if you’re looking for the phone that has it all well that would be hard to find, but this right here it’s pretty darn close, if you’re looking for a top flagship but you’re not afraid to spend a few bucks, the Huawei P30 Pro definitely deserves a recommendation .
