No need to write the same thing over and over again. And I am never going to buy Apple products. I had an iPhone once, never again.

This device will get emui 11 and there is support app too.
At least this is better than xiaomi for customer support, or you may end up paying so much for something like Apple Care.
Great mobile, btw all apps from the old mobile was transferred to p40 pro and the only Netflix was not working, but after installing from another market is working perfectly.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2021I don't get notifications for WhatsApp unless I go in physicallyMine as well. But it only happens for the first few days. After less than a week, push notification working as normal. Same goes to every other apps.
Maybe its AI chip learning our usage pattern when using it first time (for battery optimizing purpose), after a while it goes to normal.
So my wife has transitioned from P30 Pro to P40 Pro earlier this week and the change was more straightforeward than we expected.
Phone clone took less than 20 mins.
Of the apps that were copied access only Wear OS failed to work - some complained about google play services not being available but worked anyhow.
Petal maps was not installed by default but now seems to work ok.
The device received 3 software updates totalling around 8gb - ending up with EMUI 11.
Setting the Huawei ID was a little awkward.
So off to a good start, less adverts it seems.
Amazing device. Great battery life, very good screen, amazing cameras and photo quality. I did not have any trouble with update and quality of photos. Lack of GMS is a flaw, but it can be bypassed by a lot of apps, and little bit of work around. I have had a Android One phone, before this, and didnt have any trouble changing the OS
Guys I'm experiencing heavy battery drainage on Xperia XZ I just bought it is 2nd hand and they upgraded it to Oreo eish can someone assist me here? Another problem is its battery is non replaceble
Excellent device. Best camera in the world and excellent hardware. I dont need google.
Alex, 12 Jan 2021Being confused with N1 cameraphone 2020 nomination I was going through the cameraphone reviews... moreWhat about the camera pictures and videos quality after the software update? Everybody is complaining about that. I currently have the P20 Pro and i am suffering from the same issue.
Being confused with N1 cameraphone 2020 nomination I was going through the cameraphone reviews and seeing nothing but disappointment. Until reaching P40 Pro. (And I'm a mainstream user, not planning to get Huawei in a foreseen future). It truly deserves #1 spot in cameraphones:
- All three cameras are excellent during daylight.
- Ultrawide cam quality is unreachable by the competitors, both day and night.
- Main and tele night shots are acceptable, not much worse than from the nightshot leaders.
I can admit that Night Mode is bad. But how often you have still scenery to use it for?
As a side note, P30 Pro had a little better main and tele cameras. But its ultrawide is as bad as everyone's else.

I had Oneplus but back when it was 1+1, after that I had Sammy, LG, Motorola etc, never iPhone. I don't get what's the point of ruinning something that works very well ? Anyway... if you don't forget about this post, keep me update if they fixed the problem. Like I said before, my P40 Pro is it's in own box, never going to use it again until they fix the apps problem.

Worst quality after every major update (newer Android) and they never bother to fix it. Same things goes to Oneplus, iphone (after long term of updates) & other company. Happens to my older Mate 20 as well, but then its been fixed on next update.
This is their first stable EMUI 11 update. Lets wait another one or two OTA update. If they still not fixing it, then they deserves to be mocked.

In my region there is no sign of EMUI 11(not that I care too much now since the phone is rutting in it's own box)... I am super disappointed with Huawei for this trash they are doing plus what I have discussed with the other dude, you will never find out from customer support center. You can only find out from people that are not biased to a brand like myself and the other dude. In the past I felt sorry for what they are going thru but now they deserve the things that are happening to them. Worthless company that scams their loyal customers.

(After bought, directly update). Still better quality than my older Mate 20 though (bigger sensor, duh)
Got notification about EMUI 11 update, then bump to this issue of yours. Luckily u gave feedback on this thread, good community job u have done here. Well I guess just have to stick with 10.1 at the moment, until newer EMUI 11 fix those issue.

Photog... moreI feel like both photo and video specially in lower light situation has got decreased by time as new updates has come. I have older pictures taken by Huawei P40 Pro on my hdd as I have had this device multiple times and my fiance has P40 Pro too these days with newest EMUI11 and her pictures looks like painting when zoomed in vs my old july 2020 EMUI10 10.1.0.147 running P40 Pro takes so much better pictures and videos in common. Videos taken in the dark looks so foggy and muzzy with EMUI11 and they feels like taking video from 10 years old phone as my old LG G4 captures more details. I just don't know why as I have always thought P40 Pro has one of the best cameras around as having 1/1.28" sensor but these days any midrange can kill this phone photo/video quality if running newest EMUI's..

I feel like battery is better too in earlier firmware version. Changing roms is fun but in this situation it's better to sell the phone away and think something else than Huawei if they threat us customers like this and does not admit that there is something wrong in the camera software. It's just hard to think that you buy top-end model from X company and they make it bad in a year but i think it's just making more money if it makes customers to buy every year their latest products. This is proof that sometimes updates makes the product worse than it was, from better to worse. I usually follow my heart but my brain says that I should give up on this one and find more stable product as I bought this one for a great camera and it just don't tick that box anymore like it used to. And not all the apps even I used to have on my phone. I might just get some other phone and leave this P40 Pro to get some dust until Huawei rolls out Harmony OS and fix the camera like it should be.

Gone are the days when I changed roms on my phone, now I passed those moments and they will not return. I have other interests now. If I put my mind to it, I can do it for sure and it will all come back to me but like I said, I don't do this anymore and it's too much trouble. Plus, I need a phone that works 100% out of the box since I use my phone heavy and I don't have time to test different roms to settle upon one. And this is a temporary solution, it would fix the problem. And least but not least, I know that in todays world, updates ruin everything most of the time, I have seen it on my own products way to many times.
Livius, 11 Jan 2021It's too much really. I already have limited time and to spend my free time doings hacks ... moreYeah dude I understand you 100%. For me I have flashed custom roms since young boy so its some normal thing to understand that updates always won't make your experience better. I have always told about windows 10 too how bad it is for real and wish I could install windows 7 back but its impossible as having newer hardware requires 10. Btw I recommend you to check Vivo Iqoo 5 Pro as it has custom samsung GN1 camera sensor and charges in 15 minutes from 0-100%. I might change this P40 Pro to that one day. :)
