Huawei P30 Pro: Design, Display and Camera
Huawei P30 Pro brings smartphone photography to a new era. How about the rest of the terminal? Answer in this test. When Huawei first spoke about the P30 Pro’s 4-sensor rear photo video configuration, we didn’t believe a word about it. Then I used Let me tell you right now, this smartphone takes pictures with zoom and low light that we have never seen with a smartphone. Surpassing the Galaxy S10+ and Pixel 3 in this area, the combination of elegant design and impressive autonomy makes the P30 Pro one of the best smartphones on the market.
First off, the P30 Pro stands out in an unprecedented way. The way the sky blue is mixed with pink in the “purple” model is fascinating and thus gives the product a certain character. It also has a pretty green-blue color or a more serious black color. Like the previous Galaxy S10 or P20 Pro, materials made of glass and metal are of good quality. On the other hand, for Huawei’s 192g, it has more weight than the 175g Galaxy S10+, and this feels in the hand. The thickness is also 8.41mm and Hangul 7.8 is the same. It could be a glitch in the impressive photo module. Overall, the product is pretty, but the S10+ is more stylish and classy.
The 6.47-inch screen extends almost to the border of the phone and the sides are bent, giving the terminal a bit of personality. There is only a thin chin and a small notch “drop” at the top. In between or you have to choose the punch of the S10. We are rather supporters of the punch and it’s a matter of taste. The screen definition is 2,340 x 1,080 pixels. It’s slightly lower than Samsung’s maximum resolution of 3,040 x 1,440 pixels, but you won’t notice it unless two phones play the same video side by side in HD and look at the screen very closely. But what’s the point of the job? Every day, the P30 Pro’s resolution is enough to highlight YouTube videos, and the bright colors are great for gaming.
Now let’s take a look at the photo part which is the advantage of this P30 Pro. This is for the least wealthy because it consists of 4 sensors (three optics) and the last said “ToF” (time of flight) that measures the distance between the subject and better implements the bokeh effect.
- 40MP 27mm f/1.6 OIS (default)
- 20MP 16mm f/2.4 (ultra wide angle)
- 8MP 125mm f / 3.4 OIS (Zoom X5)
- TOF sensor
So what sets the P30 Pro apart from its competitors is that it has this 8MP sensor, especially offering a 5x zoom or a 125mm focal length equivalent to 35mm. It’s the first smartphone to have such an optical zoom, and that’s enough to say right now. That’s impressive. Better than the 5x, Huawei adds a fascinating 10x hybrid zoom. Huawei makes the perfect copy here. In low light, the “125mm” optical device has more problems on the one hand, but has problems with the color management of shots that tend to turn green at times. This is the only drawback of the “zoom” part, not Huawei’s only innovation. This brand is very strong even in low light.
