I opted for the P30 Pro rather than the smaller handset (I came from Samsung, and had an S8). After reading the reviews, it seemed that battery life was the major selling point alongside the camera.
After using the phone for a while now, the battery is ok...not as impressive as was made out. Watching video is fine - it goes on and on, but web browsing and gaming drains it really fast, and it gets very hot when used for a while. I don't find the standby battery life to be particularly good either - I am losing around 15% battery per night.
I am also a quite disappointed with the camera. The zoom feature is very good, and most shots are very clear. But...colour consistency is not good between the different lenses. You can use the various lenses to take some really nice shots, but the colour is dreadful. The wide angle lens is really saturated - over saturated in many cases, whereas the telephoto lens is really washed out and always blows out the highlights. You can literally take the same image using all three lenses, and you have three completely different colour renditions. I think this is the most disappointing aspect of the phone. The camera was the biggest selling point for me, and although the hardware is impressive, the implementation isn't that good.

top 3 reasons to get the P30 Pro instead of the S10+.
2.Better battery life.
top 3 reasons to get the S10+ instead of the P30 Pro.
1.Has the mammoth 12GB RAM version with 1TB ROM which makes it quite future proof.
2.Has built in screenlock widget.
3.UI is less buggy.
but these points are for ME MYSELF PERSONALLY.i have severe OCD and i dont press my buttons and i take utmost care of my phones.but my experience with my Mate 20 Pro kinda make the P30 Pro a no go as it was not able to lock screen using widgets(i can lock but i cant unlock without entering pin).
not to forget 2 NM Cards failed on my.which i bought for around $150 each.
just not ready to spend more but im considering getting the 8/512 P30 Pro as my second phone to accompany my 12/1 S10+.
Its sad p30 pro dont have led notification 😅😅
Just want to point out my opinion and some facts. The zoom is 4.6x, not 5x. Now the moon mode issue start to appear. Look at the Dxomark, the colour reproduction of S10 is better than P30 Pro. Why NM format?? No headphone jack is quite OK but P30 does not have Bluetooth LDAC. Those Sony headphone users will hate it. Even my Old Samsung S7 have it. EMUI vs OneUI? I think i will prefer OneUI.

A perfect example would be the ghosting/burn-in problem faced by both the LGV10 and the LGV20. Granted, this is might be the wrong venue for asking those types of questions, but he probably just wanted to verify this wasn't the case with the Huawei P30.
Im sad P30pro doesnt have advance face id like mate 20 pro..i prefer it have notch like mate 20pro or p20 pro with face id..dew drop notch just like regular chinese phone like xiaomi etc 😂😂

AimeDuSable, 23 Apr 2019I do not have a 4K phone, unfortunately 1440p only. Kirin is about as good as Exynos, I agree... moreNo Problem at screen even it has 1080p resolution, Screen is sharp and bright is because of HDR screen technology put on P30 pro screen compare with normal full hd without HDR screen technology.... No need quad HD For p30 pro.... the best screen, p30 pro is brighter and crisps screen than s10 plus.... buy and see in you eyes....

Just get the best possible phone you can afford because you can't have everything when it comes to phones! There is no way the S10+ is better than the P30 Pro overall since the S10+ charges much slower, drains much faster (both Exynos and SD has major battery drain issues), takes mediocre photos esp.in low light, and is more expensive. I seriously doubt you'll feel any slower while using a P30 Pro. EMUI is much smoother compared to OneUi period. Display quality advantage for the S10+ for me is negligible since not everyone will consider PPI and resolution.

Why do you care about stereo speakers when its use is only for ringing and alerts?
Who will appreciate your phone stereo speakers when it rings? Nobody.
