One of the best phones, high specs. with very reasonable price, I got it 460 USD ,
Does smart launcher or any other launcher works flawlessly on emui? I never had huawei phones so im asking thanks
hard to say no to this phone, I wanted to jump ships to s10 or something else. But for its price, its a top notch phone. Got it for 275 USD on a telco deal. So I cannot really jump anywhere. 128gb 8gb ram. Its just crazy pricing i got.
for those who have doubts. here are some 6 months experience points
Design: 10/10 top notch solid built, color options are great, elegant looks
Size: 9/10 almost perfect for one handed use with 6.1 inch( wish it was 5.9)
Screen: 9/10 very bright and clear even with 50% brightness, has options for HD and FHD. flat screen allows you to install tempered glass easily.
Sound: Don't be fooled with the single setup, its damn loud and clear with details for any music format. High quality stuff in there. Only loses to samsung dual stereo in a minor way
Connectivity: Never fails, pulls every signal that is available from wifi to 4g even at weak areas.
Back Camera: nothing beats this apart from well known models like perhaps Apple ,s10, note 10, p30 pro, mate20 pro etc.. otherwise its a damn good camera.
Front Camera: better than decent, nothing to brag about. no physical flash.
Software: Boring but fluid, no lags or stutter. But seriously, its just old school looks. Manages the ram and apps very well with no effort. Wait for Android 10 and EMUI 10 which will solve most of the problem. Looks better too. 1 department huawei still lacking.
UDFP: seriously handy, dont want physical scanner anymore lol. And this one never failed since the day I bought it. works every time perfectly.
Battery: Meh.. its the same old story. but I used zznfone max pro m2 before with 5k mah. Its about the same. Lasts you 1 1/2 days with moderate usage. Charges fast enough within 1 1 1/2 hours. lets hope there are changes after the update.
Battery life could have been better perhaps 4.2k mah would have been nice
no notification light, you need to depend on the screen
boring UI and themes
proprietary nm card which is expensive
usb C charger slot is a bit loose, maybe only my phone has the problem. idk.
Value for money : 9/10 , mid rangers or so called flagship killers can scuk on this over every aspect, Huawei is Huawei, P30 is P30. For moderate people who does not want overkill specs, this is for you. You can skip every mid range phone easily and invest on this. Its future proof and has 3.5mm jack as well.
Too bad this phone is not friendly to get it rooted (as most of Huawei phones for that matter - at least what i investigated so far), otherwise this is basically the perfect phone for 2019, a bit smaller so it fits hand better, at least some IP rating, dual GPS.
I guess i will either break my buck and get S10 or settle with OnePlus 7.
Would like to know whether google supports this model and will there be android upgrades for this phone . I really loved this phone and wish to use it for long but little afraid
mariohmax, 15 Oct 2019I'd like to buy this phone, but when I think about google, I am afraid of getting in problems.No problem with google as its excluded from ban, already use this brand for 4 months
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2019Which one would be better? p30 or mi9?i'll go for p30
mariohmax, 15 Oct 2019I'd like to buy this phone, but when I think about google, I am afraid of getting in problems.Im using this phone for more than a month.. so far so good better quality and has a smooth performance specialy ML.
Unknown, 11 Oct 2019If only it is lcd type and not oled I will buy itWhy would you want lcd? oled is much better. It's brighter, uses less battery, better in sunlight, more vivid colours, can use aod...
Planning to upgrade from Mate 10 Pro, is it worthy upgrade or no?P30 is now 465$ in my location.
mariohmax, 15 Oct 2019I'd like to buy this phone, but when I think about google, I am afraid of getting in problems.P30 or other Huawei phones before it are not affected by Google ban. I am using this phone and it's working well with the usual updates of all Google apps.

TM, 22 Sep 2019Huawei P30 or Samsung Note9 ?P30 if you love small phones. Note 9 if you need bigger screen and stylush. I use both of them, but P30 is in my hand most of the time since i bought it.
Bought p30 2 weeks ago, everything is great, speed specially, battery life is great IF you are not a heavy gamer, camera has many options, speaker has full sound but not very loud
Unknown, 11 Oct 2019If only it is lcd type and not oled I will buy itWhat's wrong with oled?
Unknown, 11 Oct 2019If only it is lcd type and not oled I will buy itI bought it because it has OLED. I won't buy if it's screen is just LCD.
