Log1cal, 27 Mar 2019Mediocre camera on P30 pro??? Really? That is a fanboy dedicated camera talking! No more than ... moreYes, really. Under same lighting conditions, with same parameters, take a picture of the same scene, with this $1000 phone and with an entry level $350 digital SLR, and compare them. You will see that it's nothing more than mediocre. If you claim otherwise, you obviously didn't see a photo from an APS-C camera, not to mention a "full frame" or larger.
uk7866, 27 Mar 2019AgreedThe screen is HDR-capable, HDR10 to be specific.
Hi, I hope all the GPS Activity Tracker Issues when using apps like Strava, Trace were solved as on my current P20 Pro are still there (even using internet). I had to go for skiing with two mobile phones on me, Samsung J6 successfully recorded complete and accurate TRACE activity.

Loss of detail there is, but it's not without detail, there 8s plenty, even if a little compared to iso50.
The battery life is great due to the large capacity.
The camera is amazing, probably the best overall but point and shoot crown still goes to Pixel 3. Personally I'd take the versatility of the P30 Pro.
All other flagship stuff is present
Huawei is still behind in performance. Kirin 980 is slower in every aspect than the Snapdragon 855, both in real life and benchmarks. Although it also benches worse than the new Exynos, it is overall better due to being a smaller more power efficient chip that doesn't suffer from awful scheduler.
The software is still awful compared to even Samsung and Xiaomi's customizations. Not even close to OxygenOS overall feature & bloat ratio but still better than barebones Pixels with Googlefied AOSP. All are behind iOS in polish. Also Huawei spying is pretty bad even among Chinese OEMs, I'd advise to look into it if it doesn't bother you before buying.
I know I wrote a lot more in downsides but overall the P30 Pro is a great flagship. For an average user who only cares about social media and nice photos and is not bothered by being spied on Chinese government, it is a very good choice.
Good phone, personally I'd not get it but objectively pretty good.
Hildr, 27 Mar 2019Well, audiophile will never like the sound from a 8mm thick device, be it mono, stereo, 7.1. B... moreWhile I agree at some places, I can't disagree more at some points.
Firstly, USB Audio is just an excuse to not fit in a DAC to save costs and make profit. Am I clear? Internal space could be one reason, which can be managed too, as Galaxy S10e shows us.
Secondly, you say, for an Audiophile, no 3.5mm jack is better? Well, really?
Are you not aware that even if you're having 3.5mm jack (for example in S9), you can insert and use your own DAC, isn't choice between the 2 options a good thing for consumer?
I know no one represents all of us, but isn't it pure logic that 3.5mm is an additional choice and not a drawback in any matter (for users)?

Still splash resistant though. But IMO, just get Samsung s10 or 10e. All IP68. I am loving my S10e now!

... moreP30 Pro is IP68, P30 is IP53 which is a joke.
I'd prefer P30 but without water protection it can't even be considered seriously.
Curved Display is bad
No HDR 10
No gorrila glass
BOE = lower quality than samsung AMOLED
No 3.5mm jack
No top physical speaker
Nano SD is bad
Camera is good, but gimmicky, video not as good as other flagships
And they sell from 999 euros. In my country, i rather get s10+ for less price (in fact my current phone is s10e and i love it)
If you really want to get huawei, p30 is better choice. Flat screen and Samsung panel.
Well, image quality is quite good, however nothing special. Please rescale photos from S10 to 10mpx, or even from xperia xz1 and you wil get good quality pics. Ok night photos are quite nice, but overall, P30pro is a massive overhype. Huawei, thanks but no thanks, go spy somewhere else :).
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2019No 3.5mm audio port is this a joke huawei ????!!Is that your only argument? Only samsung pander to people stuck in the past, sorry
Makimaki, 27 Mar 2019So suddenly everyone is up for p30 pro and nokia forgottenAt least it means people are smart enought to know what matter is what the device is capable of, and not what brand it is. Manufacturers will just get lesson from that. Only fanatics will stuck to a brand because "it's the best" without even considering the competition.
And that's why fans/haters are just a big joke because they would like to have only one brand doing stuff and kill all the freedom the consumer could have had with a good competition.
Never get loyal to a brand, they will never do anything for you if not calling you cash cow.
So buttom line. if i have mate 20 pro should i upgrade?
Or wait for the 5g phone like the s10 plus?!
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2019Gsmarena don’t believe that P30 Pro has better OLED panel than iPhone XS Max and S10 plus.Well it does't. Samsung has at the moment the best panels, hence why Apple is also buying the X ones from them. If you check the Huawei Oled lacks HDR , so by definition it's worse already. The camera though , that`s another story. I own a S10 and I am mighty jelly at the Huawei's dedicated night mode and zooms.
