Huawei P30 Pro: Display, Price, and Specifications in 2019.



 When we look at the flagship phones released by Huawei during the year, we see that the first half of the year is reserved for the P series and the second half for the Mate series. Huawei also shares new technologies and features in these series. When we look at last year's Mate 20 Pro model, we see that the Kirin 980 processor, wireless reverse charging feature, and other such performances and productivity-oriented innovations are presented for the first time with the Mate series. When we go back six months from this phone, we see that the three rear cameras came with the P20 Pro for the first time. When we come to today, we see that the latest members of the P series, which takes its name from the word "photography", are introduced with interesting innovations on the camera side. Probably these camera features and technologies we expect in the fall. We will also see it in the Mate 30 series.
After making such an introduction, let's come to the subject of our article Huawei P30 Pro. Introduced in Paris at the end of March and familiar to us on the spot, the top member of this P30 series comes with mind-blowing camera capabilities. This Android phone, which is offered with features such as four rear cameras, high-resolution selfie cameras, an OLED screen, Kirin 980 processor, high-capacity battery, meets the needs. in this article, we will give you a quick review regarding the P30 Pro. 

Huawei P30 Pro: Display, Price, and Specifications in 2019.


Design & Display.


When we first encountered the Huawei P20 Pro last year, we were impressed by the design of that phone. Indeed, as we mentioned in the Huawei P20 Pro review, this was one of the most impressive Android phones we've experienced so far. The Mate 20 Pro, which we met six months after the Huawei P20 Pro had a design that could be considered as a first for Huawei. It was a first for Huawei with a curved screen, front and back symmetrical body, but it was possible to find other phones on the market that speak this language. Still, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro was a stylish device and was pretty practical to use.
Huawei is also applying the Mate 20 Pro's holding design to the P30 Pro without applying much changes. The curved screen, the front, and back covered with glass, and the body surrounded by metal are also carried to Huawei's first 2019 model flagship phone. If you placed both phones side by side with the screen turned off and looked from the front, it would be quite difficult to distinguish. The bottom and top edges of the phone are straight, not curved. On the other hand, when you turn on the screen, you will see that the P30 Pro has a drop notch on the screen, unlike the Mate 20 Pro.

Huawei continues to maintain a camera look on the back, an icon of the P series. As a matter of fact, photos are taken more upright with smartphones nowadays. Even the videos are mostly shot with the phones held upright, although we don't like it at all. In this case, it is debatable how correct Huawei is to position Leica and its own brand horizontally behind the P30 Pro. Still, if you ask us, we can say that we welcome Huawei not breaking this line in order to preserve the spirit of the camera and remind that the best photos are taken horizontally. On the back, three cameras are lined up in a group, slightly protruding outward. Just below this group is the flash, laser autofocus system, and ToF (time of flight) camera.


When we look at the lower edge of the Huawei P30 Pro, we see the USB-C port, microphone, speaker, and nano-SIM snow tray. The phone has dual line support. At the same time, Huawei's own standard NM memory card is also supported. By sacrificing the second line, you can increase your storage space by purchasing these cards.

Huawei also adds a silicon case to the phone's box. Thanks to this transparent case, it is possible to protect the phone without compromising its elegance and without covering the color. The silicone case fits the phone perfectly. On the other hand, it contributes to the more comfortable use of the phone. Thanks to its slim profile and its structure that curves towards the edges, keeping and using the P30 Pro without a case is not a big problem. However, the cover adds a little more friction, making it easier to use.

As far as display is concerned, Huawei P30 Pro comes with a 6.47  OLED display long from corner to corner. So it has a bigger screen than the Mate 20 Pro. The screen only loses space for the selfie camera at the top.  with the screen-to-body ratio approaching 90 percent, there is not much blank space on the front except the screen. So much so that Huawei did not put a speakerphone on this phone. The sound of the handset speaker is transmitted from the bottom of the screen to the ear by vibration. Although we feel that the loudness is one level lower than a standard speaker, we can easily say that we do not have any trouble hearing the other party in general. The P30 Pro has a 2340 x 1080 resolution with 398 PPI. and 19.5: 9 aspect ratio.

The brightness of the P30 Pro's OLED display is quite high. This provides a more comfortable use outside. Although the resolution is lower than the value on the screens of flagship devices such as the Mate 20 Pro or Galaxy S10 +, it is not possible to understand the difference after looking at it in detail. Even on phones with most ultra-high resolution screens, the screen resolution is initially set to be Full HD or its derivative. Text and graphics are very sharp and clear.

The black color depth of the screen is also high. This further improves color accuracy. The colors look very vibrant. As a result, even when you look at the photos you take with the P30 Pro directly from the device, you will be sufficiently impressed. In addition, we see that the viewing angles of the screen are quite high, and the colors on the screen do not differ much even when you look from the edge.

The drop notch on the top does not cause much trouble when watching videos or viewing photos as it takes up very little space. However, in applications such as Netflix, we see that this drop is not messed with the notch, but is kept as the beginning of the image area of ​​the finish line. Although the notch is small, Huawei offers users the ability to hide it.

The stereo speaker has become the standard in most flagship phones today. That being the case, it's a bit disappointing to see the P30 Pro come with only one speaker. Fortunately, the speaker on the lower edge offers a very high intensity and quality sound output. At the same time, the bass and treble level is balanced, there is also fullness. As a result, it lets you enjoy the sound when watching videos or want to listen to music with friends, without the need for external speakers. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack. Out of the box comes the USB-C headphones that we've seen before coming with the Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro. These headphones are of good quality and the sound output is at a satisfactory level. You may not feel the need for another headset.

There is a second microphone on the upper edge. In addition, Huawei continues its belief in the infrared port on this phone as well. You can use the P30 Pro to control devices such as TVs, home theater systems, air conditioners in your home with the help of the Smart Remote application under the Tools folder that comes installed on the phone. On the right side, the volume and power keys are lined up, positioned slightly higher. The keys are not very deep, though there is not much trouble pressing them. However, it would be better if the volume key was kept a little longer

Operating System Processor


Huawei P30 Pro comes with Kirin 980. This processor is built using a 7nm process for extreme power efficiency, and it also has a neural engine onboard for AI-related tasks.

As for the P30 Pro GPU, Huawei P30 Pro has the Mali-G76 MP10. In Geekbench 5, the CPU scored 3313 for single-core and 9708 for multicores.

According to the operating system, Huawei P30 Pro runs on Android 9 with Huawei famous UI, EMUI 9.1,  With EMUI 9.1, there is not much visual change compared to EMUI 9, which we saw on the Mate 20 Pro for the first time. However, the feature called Huawei Share OneHop, which provides easy content and information sharing with the latest MateBook X Pro, comes with this user interface. Apart from that, the main features such as the Google Assistant to open immediately when the power button is pressed, the automatic video editing feature called Huawei Vlog, which can be accessed from within the Gallery app, and the GPU Turbo 3.0 comes with EMUI 9.1.

On the other hand, Google's AR Core augmented reality platform is also supported by the Huawei P30 Pro along with EMUI 9.1. It is stated that the phone also includes a measurement application called Huawei AR Measure. However, this application is currently not available in our test product. However, we anticipate that AR Measure will arrive over time, just like the 3D Live Maker app on the Mate 20 Pro.

The software-based features you expect from the 2019 model flagship smartphone are available on the Huawei P30 Pro. We got used to Huawei's default user interface without app drawers, although many do not like it, it is useful to us. If you want, you can return to Android's classic, app drawer look. On the other hand, there are many different theme options for those who want to differentiate the appearance on their phone screen.

While Google's applications such as Gmail, Maps, YouTube come loaded, there are useful tools such as Compass, Recorder, Calculator under the Tools folder. In addition, with the help of the infrared port and the Smart Remote application on the top of the phone, it is possible to turn the Huawei P30 Pro into a remote control. By the way, it is interesting that Huawei has added its own Internet browser to its smartphone for the first time with the P30 Pro. You can see the browser application within applications. There's no big difference in experience with Chrome, but Chrome looks a bit richer in terms of menu options.

Security and Ports


For security, The P30 Pro has a fingerprint reader built into the screen, just like the Mate 20 Pro. However, the fingerprint reader has been moved slightly lower than on the other phone. In this way, an experience is closer to that of under-screen physical fingerprint readers that people are used to for a long time. While the new location of the fingerprint reader is not very strange, it is also convenient and fast to use. When the screen is off, you can quickly unlock the screen by touching the fingerprint shape that appears on the screen.

On the other hand, the face recognition feature is also available. However, there is no three-dimensional face recognition system like the Mate 20 Pro. This means that the security level of face recognition is lower than that of Mate 20 Pro and it can be deceived more easily. Still, facial recognition is pretty handy for convenience. It works fast and allows you to bypass the lock screen immediately. The P30 Pro also supports the classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode. 

As of ports, the device supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. The device comes with a USB-C port, which helps in quick charing. It doesn't support a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Battery and Charging


Huawei P30 Pro comprises a powerful Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4200mAh. And it also offers fast charging.

It is possible to charge the phone very quickly with the help of the 40W Huawei SuperCharge fast charging adapter and USB-C cable included in the box. In the tests we carried out, we saw that the occupancy was reached from 0 to 65 percent within half an hour. This means enough power for over a day.

Wireless charging support is also available. Moreover, with 15W, Huawei also offers fast wireless charging. At this point, although it lags behind the Xiaomi Mi 9, which offers 20W wireless charging support, fast charging with 15W is also an improvement that will affect the users' lives in terms of comfort as well as time. Of course, you will need a wireless charging accessory with 15W support to take advantage of this feature.

The wireless reverse charging feature we know with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is also available in the P30 Pro. With this feature, you can charge smartphones or other accessories that support the Qi wireless charging protocol. Although the charging speed is slow, it is nice to be able to use the smartphone to charge accessories or devices other than the P30 Pro when a power bank accessory or suitable cable is not available.

When it comes to the performance of the high-capacity battery such as 4200 mAh, it offers a battery life that can easily exceed one day or even a second day in normal intensity use. Works such as watching videos and playing games will, of course, reduce the working time, but it would not be wrong to say that this phone will easily take out a working day even with very heavy use.

Camera


Huawei P30 Pro has Quad rear cameras, 40MP( wide with f\1.6), 20MP ( ultrawide with f\2.2), 8MP (  periscope telephoto with f\3.5) and ToF 3D for depth.  The cameras with Leica optics dual-LED dual-tone flash, HDR. On the front you see a 32MP camera with f\2.0.

The "default" camera - which is in the middle of the optical island - is capable of capturing photos up to 40 MP but is by default set to 10 MP to do pixel binning and therefore capable of improving technically low light performance.

In broad daylight, the camera defends itself admirably well, even against a Pixel 3. The level of detail is excellent, the contrast also and the sharpness is present. Only small complaint, the white balance could be better controlled, the photo has a very slight tendency to draw towards the blue, which results in a rendering a little less warm than that of the Pixel 3. On the other hand, the P30 Pro benefits from a much better color reproduction. In short, he is one of the very good students with in addition a homogeneous rendering and practically no loss of details at the edges of the image. 

By night too the P30 Pro does an admirable job. The phone manages to ensure an impeccable exposure, to maintain a good level of detail while playing sparingly with the smoothing to erase the grain. Result, we are in front of a very clean image, which competes without too many problems with the Pixel 3. In very low light conditions, the P30 Pro is able to see better than the human eye and almost "turn on the light" by pushing the ISOs - we measured up to ISO 65,000 when the phone "combines" them. three sensors. It is simply stunning, like the night mode of the Pixel 3

But it is obviously the "5x zoom" that Huawei puts forward on this P30 Pro - which is not really one in reality since it is a fixed module equivalent to 135 mm in 24x36. By adopting an arrangement of the lenses in periscope. In practice, this optic makes it possible to frame a subject tightly without resorting to digital zoom. A first on a smartphone. 

Yes, but ... the zoom is finicky. To achieve a shot like the one we are presenting to you, you not only need to have as much light as possible (the lens opens at f / 3.4), but also to remain very stable - optical and software stabilization helps, but is not enough. . We have more than once found ourselves with motion blur indoors in the middle of the day - it must be said that even under a bright sun, the phone tripped at 1/33 s in some cases. The zoom is therefore good, but the conditions for using it are limited.

We have so far carefully avoided talking about what the sensor gave in low light because we simply did not manage to capture an image in these conditions! In fact, as soon as there is no light, the phone switches to the main module and performs a 5x digital zoom in order to favor the exposure to the detriment of the details. Suffice to say that the quality is really, but then really not at the rendezvous.

To conclude this great tour of the sensors, let's take a look at the ultra-wide-angle sensor. The latter can climb up to 20 MP and replicates a 16 mm lens in 24x36. The framing is therefore a little tighter than what we find in the competition, especially Samsung whose lens of the S10 is equivalent to a 13 mm in 24x36.

But on this wide-angle game, the P30 Pro still does better than the Galaxy S10. The textures are better restored, the smoothing less present and the contrast more accentuated. Due to the slightly longer optics, the image is also less distorted. In short, the wide-angle module of the P30 Pro is a success.

At night, however, it is something else. Grain, noise, and chromatic aberrations settle in so comfortably that you hardly notice much. But in its defense, the competition does not do much better to tell the truth. In these conditions, we oscillate from bad to mediocre, whatever the phone.

 Portrait mode. It is also in this mode that the "time-of-flight" camera of which we spoke above is used. Thanks to this module, the phone is able to measure a large number of depths of field and therefore create a more progressive bokeh than what we are used to seeing on mobile. Rather than a Gaussian blur layer around the subject, the P30 Pro manages to create something that comes close to real camera bokeh - without exactly matching it, let's be clear. This results in elegant photos where the subject is well put forward.

 For the selfies, we have the 32 MP front sensor also does a very good job with a nice package of details and a sharp dive. Even in low light, the mobile is doing well.

 In videos, the phone has almost no problem, except for a very slight lag when filming in 4K. Note that the P30 Pro also offers many disengagement options, whether in photo or video.
