Design and Display
In terms of design, Huawei P30 Pro is as sophisticated as it gets. The tall and narrow model boasts a glossy gradient finish and the slimmest bezels. As gorgeous as it is, the large design might not be comfortable for smaller hands and the grip isn’t great either but the case that comes with it helps with that. The top of the screen houses a tiny dewdrop notch for the front camera while the fingerprint scanner is embedded in the screen at the bottom. At the base of the phone, a USB-C port sits between the speaker grill and the SIM tray. The SIM tray can hold two nano SIM cards for you to make the most of P30 Pro’s dual-SIM capabilities or you can use the second spot for a nano SD card for extended storage. The headphone jack is missing, however, there are visible microphone holes. Lastly, Huawei P30 Pro scores an IP68 rating which makes it dust and water-resistant.
Huawei P30 Pro features a stunning 6.47” OLED display with 2340 x 1080 resolution that churns out impressive visuals. Expect vibrant imagery, incredible colour accuracy and pleasant viewing experience. Although 4K videos and graphically heavy and intense games might not do as good as they do on other high-end phones, the results are still fabulous.
Performance and Other Features
Huawei P30 Pro runs on Hisilicon Kirin 980 octa-core processor and 8GB RAM giving it unrivalled power under the hood. It can take any task you throw at it and any app you download. Play power-intensive games like PUBG, Battle Royale or Call of Duty Mobile without any lag or stutter. It supports 128GB storage which can be extended with the nano SD card.
An interesting thing about Huawei P30 Pro is that you won’t find earpiece speakers on top of the screen. There are built into the top portion of the screen instead and putting your ear there will provide you with the audio.
The camera is the most outstanding feature of Huawei P30 Pro. The rear camera packs an astonishing quad-lens system. Huawei P30 Pro works wonders with 40MP main lens, 8MP 5x optical zoom lens, 20MP wide-angle lens and 10x hybrid zoom. The AI efficiently evaluates the frames to produce crisp photos. Even in low-light environments, the camera picks up incredible detail, vibrancy and clarity that might not even be visible to the naked eye. It’s safe to say that the Night Mode of Huawei P30 Pro is even better than Google Pixel 3’s camera. The 40MP main lens and 5x zoom lens make it possible for you to zoom in without ruining the quality of images unless you are likely to import them in graphics-intensive programs like Photoshop.
The battery on Huawei P30 Pro easily lasts a day on a single charge. It packs 4200mAh battery which is larger and more powerful than most of what its competitors pack. The power-saving mode, in particular, can come in handy when you can’t plug your phone in any time soon. It limits background activity, stops auto-syncing the apps and reduces brightness so you can have some juice left. In worse situations, you can also use the ultimate power-saving mode that brings up a monochrome interface and limiting all activity to just a few apps.
Considering all its features, it won’t be wrong to say that Huawei P30 Pro is a phone with superpowers. The quad-lens camera, powerful performance and long-lasting battery are winning points of Huawei P30 Pro. If you want a premium phone to enjoy a luxurious mobile computing experience, this one is the answer.
