Huawei P30 Pro Review



Our Huawei P30 Pro full review takes a close look at this most premium of Huawei’s latest flagship smartphones, to see how it compares with rivals such as Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus and the Pixel 3 XL. Following the excellent Mate 20 Pro, is the P30 Pro another essential mobile thanks to its updated camera tech and excellent EMUI 9 software?

Like pretty much every other phone launched in 2019, the Huawei P30 Pro is an absolute beast – personally we prefer the feel of the more compact P30, but this Pro model (I reviewed the Breathing Crystal version) boasts that 5x optical zoom, a larger battery, wireless charging support and a few other upgrades.

I’ve been testing out the P30 Pro for a while now and I would happily use it as my full-time handset, if I didn’t have to review loads of other devices in the meantime. Huawei has definitely crafted one of the very best camera phones of 2019, and the rest of the phone is very enjoyable too, helped along by the excellent EMUI 9.1 overlay.

    For a long time I have had an irrational loathing of Huawei products but I admit that the P30 and P30 Pro are changing that view. I would consider buying one if my OnePlus 6 met an untimely demise.

    I was going to get S10 as always used Galaxy's but think I will wait for the Mate 30 later this year. My S8 isn't that bad to force me to swap immediately.

    Adore my P30 Pro, battery, camera, screen…all immense. Big photography fan and it just ticks a huge number of boxes. Huawei have been doing it right since the P20 Pro.

    Just too expensive, esp if video is jank. If you only need a great still photo shooter buy a used Pixel 2 for 200 bucks and carry on (pixel 2 still runs fast and is getting updates).

    I just took delivery of the 512GB Amber Sunrise model yesterday. I'm loving it. Battery life is so much better than the Galaxy S8 it replaced. EMUI is not that bad, and I've been using Samsung One UI. I prefer the swipe navigation on EMUI and the face unlock is blazing fast. The fingerprint reader is also very good as well, I can rotate my finger 180 degrees and it still unlocks.
