It's fun how most competition is 6,4"+ and the p30 isn't, this is why I will get it I think. Had 6,4 before and really never been happy about it.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2019propietary memory cards? Have they gone crazy or what... Agree. Where can you find the doggone things, and do you have to have the memory card in the phone to back it up or dump it?
As nice as this thing looks and despite the excellent review, my first instinct is that a proprietary memory card from China is a deal-breaker.
CJB, 19 Aug 2019Awesome! can i play fortnite on 60fps on p30?

anonymousslovenia, 26 Jun 2019well in Slovenia the p30 is cheaper than xr and s10..xr is 900€, s10 is 900€ and p30 is 700€...Not correct. In Slovenia p30 is for 609 eur on A1 carrier.
But overall it's a good phone, it just has sluggish EMUI so launcher is preferred.
P30 or Honor 20?

Why doesn't anyone stress enough a serious problem with too quiet sound on videos? Whenever I try to play video files recorded on my P30 back on any other device, that is a PC or another smartphone, their sound level is very low, despite the volume turned up to 100%. Anyone else experienced that? The mics seem to be working OK, it's just the sound level of the recording that's terrible. On the P30 its own videos play back loud enough but only on it. On all the other devices they are way too quiet.

nick, 18 Apr 2019Wrong, P30 has IMX 600 with RYYB filter on top of it. Were is that? I couldn't find official source
Nick Tagataka, 29 Apr 2019Lol, ok, let me explain why "power button/volume button location problem" that you're claiming... moreYour long explanation is absolutely useless and unnecessary. I had numerous flagship smartphones for the last 9 years and never ever had so many issue with any of them! So this fact talks for itself - Huawei Mate 20 Pro is an overpriced overrated piece of crap indeed. Sad but true. The only good things about it are the battery life, randomly good photos from versatile camera, screen resolution / brightness and unique back design. Everything else is sub-bar, not a flagship level. Now you can relax, keep buying Huawei phones and have a good the rest of the week!
VectorR, 28 Apr 2019There is nothing to laugh about! Heaps people complaining about the same thing - tons of acci... moreLol, ok, let me explain why "power button/volume button location problem" that you're claiming isn't a thing then. All people have differently shaped and sized hands and this makes it impossible to find the button locations that satisfy everyone. You can search up "Galaxy S9 accidental screenshot" or "iPhone XS accidental screenshot" and you can find tons of people complaining about it. Some Pixel users even claim that they accidentally put the phone to silent which frequently causes their phone to vibrate because of the shortcut that Google uses(Volume+ & Power button to set the phone to vibrate). I'm sorry that you experience the issue with it but that's not common across all the Mate 20 Pro users. That's why no reviewers put what you're saying in the "cons" section in their review - they simply don't have any problem with it.
"simple inability to unlock the phone at first-second attempts"
Face unlock? I've seen many people saying it's instantaneous.
"too long operator name"
Then hide it.
"no Google Feed out of the box"
Different launcher then? In some regions the default launcher comes with Google Feed which is accessible by swiping to the left.
"too many blurry, out of focus shots, bad selfies, horrible video quality at low light condition"
Sounds more like a user problem as for the first two, as I never got blurry photo even in low light condition with my P30. Sometimes it struggles to autofocus in a very close distance but that's simply because it uses larger sensor which deepens the depth of field and makes the focus harder, and tap-to-focus solves the issue perfectly. And for the moving objects so far I haven't got a single out-of-focus shot on P30 yet.
And just because you prefer more contrasty, more sharpened image from Pixel's selfie camera it doesn't make Mate's selfie camera crap. It's not the best, but still fairly good. Video quality should be on par with Note 9(which is fairly decent) in low light, so again, I don't know what you're really seeing.
I don't need any "luck" to use my phones normally. I have an ability to handle them properly, and my P30 and S10 are working just as I expected. Of course neither of them are perfect, but obviously I don't have problems that you do with your phones. I actually stop here because I find it extremely pointless to explain anything to you at this point. Enjoy the rest of your week.
VectorR, 28 Apr 2019No Huawei flagship phone worth its price. Overpriced rubbish compared to Galaxy S10, iPhone Xs... moreCould agree about mid range but I would say the same about Samsung... Flagship is definitely better be it in scores or in real life, you cannot fight sensor size and hdr of it's flagship with the same sensor as years before...
While giving at least something even if of low quality, it's better than not having any, still I would go for honor view20 if deciding between Huawei/honor, as it's output though from one sensor, is still original even if compared to flagships.
As for consistency, not sure what you mean, but as if there is perfect output, it's all about loses and gains.
Nick Tagataka, 28 Apr 2019"improper positioned Volume Down and Power buttons" Sorry but I literally bursted out laughin... moreThere is nothing to laugh about! Heaps people complaining about the same thing - tons of accidental screenshots in gallery. You just don't want accept the brutal truth - Mate 20 Pro is inferior to Pixel 3, Galaxy S10e and even to OnePlus 6T! Yes, I seriously pissed off by Huawei Mate 20 Pro since day one after switching from Pixel 3. Didn't expect such childish issues like simple inability to unlock the phone at first-second attempts, inferior speakers, tons of accidental screenshots, no notifications issue (due to "too long operator name" as I found out later), bloody hisearch window instead of notifications with swipe down gesture, no Google Feed out of the box, camera inconsistency (too many blurry, out of focus shots, bad selfies, horrible video quality at low light condition, "photoshopped" peoples faces even in pro mode...) etc etc. With all above-mentioned "small issues" this phone is rather upper mid-range than flagship. Worth $500 - $600, no more than that. So good luck with your P30 :) :) :)

Sorry but I literally bursted out laughing when I read this part. Never accidentally triggered screenshot, never heard of people doing that either apart from you. Like seriously, what kind of complaint is that? How about improperly large and obstructing notch that doesn't serve any purpose on Pixel 3 XL then? As well as equally thick chin? Did Google fix the double notch bug as well? And at least you have an accurate and secure facial recognition on Mate 20 Pro just in case when its FPS is not reliable enough, but you surely didn't want to mention it because you were trying to take a piss on Huawei. Pixel has no workaround for its single camera setup, but Google thought there's "no need" for having two cameras because they reckoned that software processing can completely overcome the hardware advantage. What a joke.
Go ahead and sell your Mate 20 Pro if you actually own one, nobody's forcing you to keep it if you don't like it. Meanwhile I'll enjoy my P30 and S10, thank you ;)

Neither workaround for sub-bar "stereo" speakers nor for non-functional, pissing off in-screen fingerprint sensor. The worst "flagship" phone I've ever had. Selling this crap now.
Enjoy you flawless Huawei :).
VectorR, 28 Apr 2019I have Google Pixel 3 for half a year already. I has the best Android OS indeed in all terms. ... more"No single bug since day one"
It's good to hear that you're having no issue whatsoever unlike other unfortunate Pixel users who suffered from random bugs and glitches. The difference between a bug on Huawei and Google's software is that the former is common across all Huawei phones running on the same OS version, so while it has some annoying quirks most of the time there are workaround for each of them(such as notification and aggressive RAM management), whereas the latter is more unpredictable and usually you can't do anything about it until they push out the update to fix it. So for instance, some units of Pixel get a sudden UI slowdown like MKBHD did, but others don't have the same issue. I changed a few settings after I got my P30 and so far I haven't faced any problems on it, and minor bugs like Youtube scrolling lag have been ironed out with the latest software update.
"Earpiece is apparently worse on Mate as well"
I was talking about P30 Pro here, not Mate 20 Pro. P30 Pro doesn't even have a earpiece in the first place as it vibrates the display to emit sound which according to many reviewers works flawlessly and offers excellent call quality.
It's kind of funny that you claim that you're "tired to fight with Huawei fanboys" yet you just posted three comments hating on Huawei consecutively, as if you want to start a war with Huawei fans. Anyway I probably shouldn't bother you, bye.
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2019Oh you mean that buggy OS called stock, which has new groundbreaking bugs every other day? or ... moreComplete rubbish! Obviously you never owned Pixel 3 / 3 XL if you talking this s***. Buy it first and THEN start talking about bugs and notches! P30 is exactly just a phone with good camera and mediocre, sub-bar everything else. The only thing Pixel 3 is missing is camera versatility. Otherwise it is unbeatable! P30 reminds me an inflated peacock in front of American Eagle. :). Anyway, NO wireless charging, NO stereo speakers = NO buy!
