Huawei P30 Pro Quick Review
Huawei has opted for a sharp 6.47-inch display with this P30 Pro. The screen uses OLED technology, so colours are beautifully displayed and black is really black! This Pro has the perfect screen for movies, series or a video game!
The OLED display is large, but the thin and rounded edges make the P30 Pro very comfortable to hold. Both the front and back consist of a strong glass plate, this material feels and looks very premium.
On the back of the P30 Pro, you will find four cameras, including the 40-megapixel main camera that captures every detail. The 20-megapixel wide-angle lens shoots photos with a larger viewing angle so that even more fits on the photo! The 3D TOF sensor measures depth, which makes every portrait photo look good.
And then you have the periscopic zoom lens of 8 megapixels, this is the most special lens of all. With this lens with Hybrid Zoom, you can zoom in 10x, ideal if you only want to get a clear picture of the facade of a historic building!
The front camera is equipped with face recognition, one view into the camera and your device is unlocked! The fingerprint scanner is a safer alternative. This sensor is hidden under the display and ensures that you have access to your photos, files and messages in an instant!
Huawei has equipped the P30 Pro with the Kirin 980 processor. This chip is lightning fast in everything it does and thereby saves on the battery. With this smartphone, you can effortlessly play 3D games, edit photos or multitask and expect a good battery life!
On the road with an empty smartphone is the last thing you have to worry about with the P30 Pro. The phone has a hefty 4200mAh battery that you can easily power all day, and maybe two!
Is your battery low? Then you can recharge it super-fast thanks to the 40W Watt fast-charging function! Are you not a fan of cables? You can also charge your P30 Pro wirelessly, simply place your smartphone on a separately available charging station to quickly re-energize your device!
This Huawei smartphone has 6GB or 8GB with internal storage variants of 128GB, 256GB and 512MB respectively. This is already a considerable amount where you can store a lot of photos, apps and music. Are you still short? Then you can easily expand the capacity by inserting an NM memory card up to 256GB in your device!
Huawei delivers the Huawei P30 Pro with Android 9 Pie. Huawei does make a number of changes, including the EMUI 9.1 shell. This gives you a real Huawei interface with accompanying icons and apps. You can still get started with services from Android, such as the Play Store packed with apps and games!
