There is a big bummer, picture aspect ratio for 40MP is 4:3 and the popular 16:9 is available only in 6MP resolution. However Samsung gives 16:9 in 9.1MP. Also, Nano sim card of 128MB by Huawei is three times expensive than normal micro SD card. No earphone Jack.

I'd describe Huawei flagship phones as bloody useless crappy Russian Lada cars painted in gold and powered with Lamborghini engine inside. Heaps of power but no brains and everything else what Lamborghini car should have.
kuba, 01 Apr 2019Then how do you call iPhone Xs, which is $1200 (the cheapest version)?I'd call iPhone Xs is the best smartphone ever being made at the moment. It worth every cent spent on it. I'd love to have it for sure.
VectorR, 29 Mar 2019Overpriced rubbish. Deal with it :).Then how do you call iPhone Xs, which is $1200 (the cheapest version)?

To be fair (s10 owner here btw), p30 do have it's pros. And so far, all 7nm performs pretty close to each other, give or take a few milisec diff from each other, so i dont really see that affecting real world usage. So just go with whichever that interest you, dont think you can be wrong with either if it suits your needs.
pajson89, 29 Mar 2019great price for both p30 and p30 proOverpriced rubbish. Deal with it :).

S10 series devices outclass Huawei smartphones all together. That's the fact. I can buy Galaxy S10e for NZ$900 right now which is NZ$199 less than hit & miss, full of compromises Huawei P30 which even not available yet here before April 15. So good luck with P30 with missing features. Cheers!

I don't think so! Oh, I forgot to mention quite poorly done EMUI, pretty crappy-crap to be precise and again, impossibility to change it doe to locked bootloader. Saying about Samsung, their UI is a way better, night and day.

that was truly legendary to say.
Troller, 29 Mar 2019VectorR is right on all the missing specs of p30, however, i dun think we should judge the pro... moreTo be honest, the performance, speed and benchmarks is the last thing I'm worry about. To my personal opinion, old Galaxy S7 with "can't remember" Snapdragon and 4GB RAM is fast enough. I'm using the phone mostly for business, watching videos, listening music and photography. Hence why digitizer precision with perfect tactile sense, OS smoothness and responsiveness, properly working notification system, as well as reliable and excellent sound and camera system are important to me. I don't play games on smartphone (my PC does much better job here) or running heavy processing apps with myriads opened apps on background. So again, I DO MIND of missing specs I mentioned earlier for the money I pay! And I believe that NZ$1099 worth P30 must have everything. It is not cheap my any means to miss something. I literary can buy a car for this money in my country.

MadMel, 29 Mar 2019trolling Huawei with "last year chipset" tells me all about you...good luck with Pocophone.Thank you. I have a Pocofone as a back up smartphone. A great, fully customizable unlocked phone (including bootloader) with high-end chipset and pretty decent the rest of hardware for insanely low price. No complains about it whatsoever! Love it!
[deleted post]Guess what? Despite the S10+ performance has better specsheet & on benchmark, turns out the Kirin 980 + new Emui 9.1 are faster in real life.
Technically u got faster performance & camera goodies on P30 Pro, where S10+ doesnt have an answer.
VectorR is right on all the missing specs of p30, however, i dun think we should judge the processor base on the year of release, but on the process node that its build on instead, aside from gpu, kirin 980 actually has a much better cpu then exynos 9820 which is release 2019.

MadMel, 29 Mar 2019nice outburst of non logic and totally unrelated to Huawei P30 line of phones...Everything I listed is exactly applies to Huawei P30. Logic in every word especially considering the P30 price tag and existence of Xiaomi Mi 9 or even Pocophone F1. Check the specs yourself and don't ask whats wrong then.
