Huawei P Smart Pro: Quick Review

Huawei P Smart Pro is one of the successful examples of modern mid-segment phones. The prominent features of the P Smart Pro are its long battery life and its screen without any notches or cuts.

Huawei is one of the recent rising stars of the smartphone market. The Chinese manufacturer even managed to complete 2019, which was tough for itself due to the US sanctions. The company has added a large number of smartphones to its portfolio over the past year. One of these phones was the P Smart Pro. In this article, we will give you a quick review regarding the Huawei P Smart Pro.


Huawei P Smart Pro: Quick Review

 Design & Display.

  When looking at the Huawei P Smart Pro from the front, the Y9 Prime 2019, another phone that the company released in the same year, comes to mind. Indeed, the P Smart Pro and Y9 Prime 2019 has pretty much the same design except for a few minor differences. There are also other hardware differences between the two phones. However, we will address these differences later in our review.

The P Smart Pro also has a design language that reflects the modern preferences in the smartphone market. 84.7 percent of the front panel of the smartphone is covered by the 6.59-inch screen. The absence of any notch on this screen enables a seamless and holistic experience. Still, it can be said that the P Smart Pro's bezels seem a bit bold compared to a screen without a notch.

There are no keys or inputs on the left side of the Huawei P Smart Pro. On the right side, there is the power button and volume control keys, which also work as a fingerprint scanner. We will talk about the operation of the fingerprint scanner later in the article.

The upper edge of the Huawei P Smart Pro can be described as "crowded" compared to other phones on the market. Here, from left to right, there is the front camera mechanism that opens, respectively, the slot that houses the dual nano-SIM and microSD card tray and the second microphone. On the lower edge, 3.5 mm, which can be defined as an "endangered" element. the headphone jack crashes. To the right of this jack, the microphone, USB-C jack and speaker grille are lined up.

The back panel of the Huawei P Smart Pro is quite eye-catching. The sky blue back panel, which the company calls "Breathing Crystal", takes on a different look depending on the light and shade. It can be said that the back panel covering made of plastic and glass adds an air to the P Smart Pro close to high-class devices.

In the upper left corner of the rear panel is a vertically arranged three-sensor camera system. Just below this system is a LED flash. The Huawei logo is another element that completes the back panel.

It has to be said that the material quality of the Huawei P Smart Pro is quite good. The phone, which fits comfortably in the hand, does not create a feeling of heaviness. There is no problem navigating the big screen with one hand.

 As far as display is concerned, Huawei P Smart Pro has a 6.59-inch screen as we mentioned earlier. This IPS LCD panel with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 offers a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. There is no notch on the screen.

Although the maximum screen resolution of the Huawei P Smart Pro is 2340 x 1080 pixels, it is possible for users to change this setting. Those who want to reduce battery consumption can also change the screen resolution to HD + (1560 x 720 pixels). This change is made automatically when the "smart resolution" feature is activated.

While HD + resolution is beneficial for battery life, it can be troublesome while watching things on the Huawei P Smart Pro. For this reason, it is useful to switch to FHD + resolution for multimedia content consumption. Although the FHD + resolution is more than sufficient in terms of sharpness, it may be a bit lacking in contrast.

Covering 84.7 percent of the front panel, the screen without a notch provides a significant advantage for multimedia content as well as gaming experience. The absence of any cutouts on the screen makes it easier for Huawei P Smart Pro users to concentrate on games.

The screen of the Huawei P Smart Pro promises users wide viewing angles. For the color mode, users are offered two options, Normal and Vivid. Colors become cooler when Vivid mode is selected. In normal mode, warm colors are preferred. However, in both modes, the color temperature can be determined manually according to the users' own eyes.

The brightness level of the screen in the Huawei P Smart Pro can be adjusted automatically according to the brightness of the environment. Eye comfort features can now be used to activate or timing the blue light filter found in every phone.

 Operating System and Process.

 The phone offers extremely fast and powerful processors.  Huawei P Smart Pro offers a good processor for daily use. The Huawei P Smart Pro is powered by Huawei's own Kirin 710F  processor. It can be said that the basic technical hardware of the Huawei P Smart Pro is more than enough to meet the basic needs of the average user. There is no problem in the operation of standard social media, multimedia, e-mail applications, and internet browsers on the phone.

Thanks to the presence of 6 GB of RAM, the phone can easily carry out multitasking. There is no problem in starting applications on the phone, where the interface works smoothly. Things get faster when the phone is switched to performance mode through the battery settings. However, the high performance pulls down the battery life, as can be expected. We will mention this effect further in our article.

The Huawei P Smart Pro is not the kind of device that can be described as a "gaming phone". However, many games can be played easily on the phone. High-performance games can be experienced with medium or high graphics settings without any trouble. However, it can be said that in order to have the best experience in games, it is necessary not to stick to the "ultra-high" graphics settings.

 Regarding the GPU, Huawei P Smart Pro has the Mali-G51 MP4.

  In Geekbench 5, the CPU scored 318 for single-core and 1299 for multicores.

 According to the operating system, the Huawei P Smart Pro runs on Android 9 operating system. Complementing this operating system is Huawei's EMUI 9.1 user interface.

Although EMUI heavily commented on the standard Android experience; This situation does not pose a difficult situation for users.

In the standard startup screen setting of the Huawei P Smart Pro, all apps are shown here. Those who find this situation irregular can activate the drawer view through the "Start screen style" section in the settings menu.

The expected simplicity is also achieved when the drawer view is switched. On the main screen, only the applications and tools that are preloaded on the phone are shown. When the drawer is switched, the applications appear in alphabetical order to the users. At the top of the screen, recently used applications are shown as "Recommended". At the top of this section, there is a search box that allows you to access the application searched by shortcuts. In addition, applications can be accessed quickly through the letters on the side.

The Huawei P Smart Pro also has a simple mode option, which we have seen on other company's phones before. Thanks to this mode, it becomes a little easier for older people to use the phone. When simple mode is activated, the icons and text on the screen grow larger; the interface is simplified. In this way, the possibility of confusion is reduced.

The Themes application, available on all Huawei phones, also welcomes users in the P Smart Pro. Thanks to this application, which includes both paid and free theme options, it is also easier to make the Huawei P Smart Pro looks different and personal.

The state of the relationship between Huawei and Google can still be described as "mixed". Although the Chinese manufacturer has taken important steps towards creating its own mobile service ecosystem, the P Smart Pro is among the phones that the company offers the full Android experience. In short, both Google's Android apps and Play Store are available on the Huawei P Smart Pro.

In the Google folder on the home screen of the Huawei P Smart Pro, there are applications such as Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Photos. In addition, some applications from Google are also offered as the default solution in the Huawei P Smart Pro. For example, the Android Messages app takes over as the default messaging tool on the phone. Chrome is also the only internet browser pre-loaded on the phone. In applications such as e-mail and gallery, Huawei's own solutions are used.

The app store App Gallery, in which Huawei has invested heavily, is also available in the P Smart Pro. It is worth noting that the Chinese manufacturer regularly increases the number of applications here.

The Twin App feature, which has now become a standard part of almost all Android phones, is also part of the P Smart Pro. With this feature, users can create a copy of applications that do not support multiple accounts and activate their second accounts on the phone.

The Tools folder of the Huawei P Smart Pro contains tools that users can use in daily life. The device's calculator, recorder, FM radio, and weather application are accessed through this folder, while the Phone Clone application, located in the same folder, helps users transfer their data from their old devices to the Huawei P Smart Pro as quickly as possible.

Huawei P Smart Pro also has a tool that helps users manage the storage space of their devices. The Storage tab in the Settings menu shows how much space each content category occupies on the device. By tapping the Clean option at the bottom of the page, users can find suggestions on things they can delete from the device and put these suggestions into practice with a single tap.

 Storage, Price, and available colors.

  Huawei P Smart Pro price depends on the selected variant. The basic and the only variant of the Huawei P Smart Pro with 6GB RAM and 128GB variant, unfortunately, we have no idea how much it might cost.  It supports either 2 SIM cards or 1 SD card up to 512GB. It is available in Midnight Black, and Breathing Crystal colors.

 Security and Ports.

  On the security side, Huawei P Smart Pro has a fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button as a biometric authentication solution. It can be easily said that the performance of this fingerprint scanner is extremely good. Easily accessible with the fingers of both hands, the scanner unlocks the phone's screen in a very short time after detecting the fingerprint. The sensor, which can recognize more than one finger, manages to show the same speed on each finger. The phone also supports classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode.

  As for ports, the device supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. It also has support for a 3.5mm headphone jack like the Realme 6 Pro.

 Battery and charging.

 Huawei P Smart Pro provides a powerful Li-Po 4000mAh battery.  And the phone offers fast charging.

This battery is more than enough for the smartphone to spend a day without charging. Even in scenarios where the screen is on for quite a long time, there is no need to charge the phone for about 1.5 days.

It would not be wrong to say that Huawei's hardware and software preferences were effective in the emergence of this situation. One of the most important features of the Kirin 710F processor is that it works very efficiently. In addition, Huawei's EMUI 9.1 user interface also helps the system to perform without clogging and to keep the battery consumption at a reasonable level.

According to the values ​​given by Huawei; Thanks to the 4000 mAh battery, it is possible to make calls with the phone for 40 hours, listen to music for 80 hours and watch videos for 9 hours. In current usage, we encountered a picture similar to that indicated by Huawei. Even in a moving scene where you can listen to music on Spotify, browse social media applications, surf the internet, check e-mails, make a few phone calls, watch videos on YouTube and Netflix, play games; P Smart Pro takes the day off easily. It even manages to allocate enough energy for a part of the next day.

Fast charging feature is not available on Huawei P Smart Pro. With the 5V 2A charger included in the box of the smartphone, the 4000 mAh capacity battery can be fully charged in about two hours.

There are also different modes in the Huawei P Smart Pro that give users more possibilities in battery management. For example, the phone works faster when switched to performance mode. However, the battery life is also shortened by about two hours at 100 percent. In the same conditions, the power saving mode provides an increase of close to 5 hours. In super power-saving mode where only basic needs are met, a battery life of up to 140 hours is promised.

Huawei P Smart Pro has a- dual-camera on the rear as clarified: 48MP ( wide with f\1.8), 12Mp ( ultrawide with f\1.9), 2MP( for depth). Huawei P Smart Pro has a single front-facing camera, 16MP ( Motorized pop-up ). The cameras come with LED flash, AI support, and HDR. HDR technology will help you when there's sunlight behind you. HDR will edit the photo and balance the brightness. 

Although 48-megapixel photos can be taken with the P Smart Pro's rear camera system, Huawei recommends 12 megapixels as the default resolution for photos. Users can increase the resolution to 48 megapixels from the camera settings menu if they wish. However, the daily standard should be said that this is not needed much.

There is no noticeable difference in detail density between 12-megapixel photos and 48-megapixel photos. However, the file sizes of 48-megapixel photos are doubled or tripled. For this reason, 48-megapixel resolution photos being the standard choice causes an unnecessary waste of space.

The Huawei P Smart Pro's main camera captures really good quality photos if the ambient conditions are also good. Colors are reflected naturally in photos with a high level of detail. In an environment where the environment is illuminated at an average level, clear frames can be obtained thanks to the noise reduction system.

The worsening of environmental conditions also affects the camera performance of the Huawei P Smart Pro. The noise effect can be felt heavily in the pictures taken at sunset or in the evening in standard mode. The special night mode on the Huawei P Smart Pro's camera allows us to increase the amount of detail in photos taken in dark environments. However, in these photos, the excessive noise in the darker regions is still not overlooked.

The ultra-wide-angle camera sensor of the Huawei P Smart Pro has some problems that may be familiar from other phones. The difference in white balance, the lack of autofocus, and the decrease in performance indoors and in low light conditions stand out as important problems. However, if shooting in an environment with good lighting conditions, there is no problem.

There is no obvious problem in the performance of the portrait mode of the P Smart Pro supported by artificial intelligence. The AI ​​mode of the P Smart Pro's camera can also successfully detect different scenes and make appropriate optimizations according to the scene in the shot.

The front camera of the P Smart Pro, which comes out of the opening mechanism, has a resolution of 16 megapixels. The front camera, supported by facial beautification and effects, also gets help from artificial intelligence. Shots made with this camera are generally enough to meet user expectations.

1080p video can be recorded with the rear camera system of the Huawei P Smart Pro. Super wide 1080p video recording is also among the capabilities of the camera. It can be said that the overall video quality of the camera, whose electronic stabilization system functions well, is at an average level.

 Although Huawei has made a name for itself with its flagship smartphones in recent years, mid-segment phones also have an important place in the company's strategy. P Smart Pro, one of the most up-to-date members added to this group, offers a very satisfying experience at an affordable price according to today's standards.

The Kirin 710F and 6 GB RAM duo help the P Smart Pro to easily perform daily standard tasks. On the phone, which does not have any difficulties in multitasking experience, home screen transitions, and application startups are also performed smoothly.

Most smartphones these days come with notched or camera punched screens. This situation disturbs some users. In the Huawei P Smart Pro, there is no need for a notch or camera hole thanks to the opening front camera mechanism. This provides a more holistic view while watching videos or playing games.

Having a 4000 mAh battery can be considered as one of the important advantages of the Huawei P Smart Pro. The P Smart Pro does not need to be charged for more than a day, even in a heavy use scenario. It is worth noting that the fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button also works very quickly.

The Huawei P Smart Pro is among the options that those looking for a new phone can consider with its large screen, technical equipment that allows you to handle daily tasks smoothly, and long battery life.
