Review Huawei P30 Pro
Huawei P30 Pro got a camera that in some ways is out of this world and in general it’s just an awesome phone and a clear contender as the best phone 2019. It is an impressive piece of a machinery that performs great in almost all categories – especially: The camera have unprescented quality on some functions and the phone also sets new standards for how fast you can charge a phone battery. For the price its simply an amazing phone – but if this phone for some reason is not the right one for you.
But first – P30 Pro. A great looking phone build in glass and aluminium and with some pretty stupid colour naming but still eye popping colours.
Its a fairly big phone with 6,47 inch screen but the 19,5:9 ratio makes it slim so its actually pretty easy to use with one hand.
User interface and battery
The user interface is heavily customized but mostly for the better. It’s fast, it’s easy to use and it got some great ad-ons that makes it better and more user friendly.
The battery is powerfull: 4.200 milli amp hours which is great for a phone. The battery life easily last for two days with moderate use. If you are a heavy user you will be happy to know that the charger in the box can charge the phone from 0-70 percent in just about 30 minutes and to 100 percent in just under an hour. That is just outstanding.
So – the camera. What makes it so special? Well, the zoom function for example. 5 times optical zoom combined with 10 times hybrid zoom is just outstanding on this phone. You can zoom in ways never before seen on a phone and that with out loosing picture quality. Some call this the “creep mode”. Even with 50 times digital zoom you get okay picture quality.
Pictures taken in the dark also shows that there is some kind of magic going on in P30 Pro. The camera can simply take pictures of stuff that the human eye and most phones can’t see. In general the picture quality from this phone is outstanding.
The price for P30 Pro is around 850 dollars or about 700 euros. For a phone like this that’s a great price and there is hardly any big negative stuff to say about the phone. But there are som minor stuff.
- There is no headphone jack for your favorite headset.
- There is room for a memory card but only Huaweis own nano memory which can only be bought in limited stores.
- The sar value is higher than on Mate 20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10+ to mention some – that could cause some problems in areas with poor network coverage – but it’s better than on iPhone.
- The selfie camera is with fix focus which is not optimal for great selfies and finally I do miss stereo speakers – that is just better for gaming or when you play music or listen to podcast directly on the phone.
Great display, design and user interface – maybe the best when it comes to battery life and camera – If you are still not sure this is the right phone for you then check out these three great alternatives.
- Samsung Galaxy S10+
- Sony Xperia 1
- Motorola Moto G7 Plus
When you combine quality and price this is the phone to go for, the P30 Pro from Huawei. It’s not only a great phone for the price – it’s a great phone also compared to the very best and way more expensive phones on the market.
