Huawei Fanboy, 18 Mar 2023This has to be one of the last, best phones from them in a compact form factor. Good main came... moreYes, I am really disappointed with this giant P60. :(
I don't know if I will find something to replace my P40...
This has to be one of the last, best phones from them in a compact form factor. Good main camera, decent rest of the cameras, front has 4k, and IR, flat screen, good performance, and best of all, the last generation of Kirin available to all, gonna exclude the mythical 9000 one cause its super rare
This phone has the capability to take great photos but it needs your expertise for it to take those great photos. Anything than that, it's just a phone with good dynamic range.
Hi, are p40 5 G users going to get android 13 on it. Today I got another security update but m looking for software update. Anyone any idea or if no further software version update then any other rom like the one on p50. Thanks
im using p40 since it launch, this phone is very durable. light,and slim.
Nik, 08 Aug 2022One question for all, Huawei p40 or Huawei nova 9? If am being honest, p40 vs nova 9
66w supercharger makes the Nova 9 the best choice
One question for all, Huawei p40 or Huawei nova 9?
Hi all, my p40 does not turn off while charging the battery. I have unchecked stay awake while charging in Developer Options. Is it hardware or software issue. Or its system made. Does it reduce battery life. Thanks
How can I swipe down the notification panel down like Samsung. If u swipe ur finger down notification panel comes down/opens up but in all the huawie fones it opens recently used apps. Any app which can help me.
Using this mobile, an excellent mobile. One feels slight defficulty in getting used to of apps from huawie and Google apps from third party. Great battery great fine. Recommended.
Nikola19, 02 Jul 2022It's still on Android 10, with EMUI 13 expected android 12 or 13Now Huawei using harmonyOs 2
MrNice, 08 Apr 2022Great phone. There is Android 11 (EMUI 12) available now.It's still on Android 10, with EMUI 13 expected android 12 or 13
The size of this phone is ideal, there really isn't anything stopping Huawei from adding and IR blaster, 4000mah battery and IP68 to make this phone perfect. Given the speed of wireless charging, I don't really care for it
Nekomimi, 12 Mar 2022Hello, can any of this phone owner give me honest review? Im planning to switch from my mate 2... moreI've just changed from a Mate 20 Pro and I don't recommend the phone.
The camera is better on the p40, it does 4K @60fps, the 32x speed slowmo is available at 1080p not limited to 720p or lower.
The battery is smaller and doesn't fast charge as fast. But my 3 year old Mate 20 pro was getting a bit worn battery wise so the newer phone feels like it lasts a bit longer.
But the main issue and reason I don't recommend it is the lack of Google Mobile Services.
Without access to all the apps on the play store, including ones I've paid for, it isn't as useful.
I can't use my banking app, authenticator plus app, intervalometer app for taking time-lapse of the stars in the light painting star trail mode. So many things are not available to me anymore.
The Gspace app might be all you need, but it runs the apps in a virtual machine and doesn't support a Google Apps paid domain account like I use. Probably fine for a basic Gmail account.
I've tried a few attempts at getting Google Play, Gmail and the like installed "natively" but at the moment the phone isn't supported by TWRP and doesn't look easy.
So in conclusion. A great camera and phone but without Google Services I wouldn't recommend it.
*Great camera *Battery
*Design *A few games
*Compact size *90% apps will work but if you
would need 1 includeed
in this 10% it doesn't
My note 7,5/10
I've been using this phone for a year and I chose it as a conscious customer. The most important things for me are good camera and fluency. Huawei p40 has both of that things. I don't use many apps but it was no problem for me to download my bank's app and use NFC, my favourites shops apps, post apps, newspappers, energy and phone operators' apps. I downloaded gspace so I can use YT, gmail, whatsapp, everything I need. The only thing i wish there could be more good quality games. Huawei's phones are not good phones for gamers. Battery is rather medium I have to charge during the day. All in all if you are standard user who call, use internet, want good photos and use standard, basical apps its a good phone. Moreover I dropped phone into the canal and it was under the water for 30 minutes. I had to only change microphone and clean device from mud and its still works great.
