Huawei P30 vs P20 | Side-by-side comparison

Comparing the new Huawei P30 versus last year’s P20 smartphone, to see what’s been upgraded – we’ve got all-new camera hardware (including a full tri-lens setup), faster performance, a boosted battery and updates to other specs too. Here’s our hands-on, side-by-side look at all of the best new bits.

The P30 may not be quite as premium as that Pro model, but it’s still looking like one of the best 2019 smartphones around. With ultra-wide and a new periscope telephoto option, Huawei’s camera tech is more flexible than ever. You also get the new Super Spectrum tech, which captures brighter, more detailed photos and video.

And while this new phone sports a similar design versus the older P20, the specs have been boosted in comparison. The new Huawei P30 is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset, with 6GB of RAM. You get a bigger OLED display rather than a RGBW LCD panel, although resolution stays the same.

    I have the P20 and I'm definitely tempted to upgrade to the P30… but that price! I can get £200 for my P20 bringing the P30 down to £499… but I just don't think the P30 is quite worth it.

    An interesting fact is that 'IPX3' doesn't constitute a splash proof device, although devices carrying IPX3 resistance are marketed as such. IPX4 would constitute a splash proof device, IPX3 is essentially 'spray proof'… which I don't think is really acceptable for a device costing £699, especially given that Huawei's warranty for its IPX3 rated devices doesn't cover water damage.

    Got a P20, not due an upgrade for a year, dunno if it's worth taking an extra line for the P30 or just wait to upgrade to the P40 next year. From what I saw in the vid, the P30 does definitely improve on some of the P20's aspects but the P20 still runs nice and mine has Android Pie too so not sure if it's worth "spunking" the extra outlay ?

    Thanks for the video. Could you please do a comparison between P20 Pro and P30? It seems to me that P20 is not a rival to P30. I think P30 beats P20 pro: better cameras, better design, improved software.
