It's a pretty good phone. Should've mentioned that push notifications still got some problems. Also the recent screen sucks, it's not only awful to use it also got a blue tint when using a third party launcher. Disabling Huawei launcher with adb gives you a much better but overall uglier overview without the blue tint. Breaks gestures but much better overall. Also the performance is good but kinda weird, YouTube is quite laggy while playing a video if you wanna read comments or scroll through your feed.
"On the upside headphones did less damage to the stereo quality on the P30 than they did on the USB-C-outputting P30 Pro."
This is why good-ole 3.5mm jack is way SUPERIOR AND TRUSTED by audiophiles and music industry in general around the world.
YUKI93, 13 Apr 2019I want to know this: Would you prefer the B&W lens on the previous P20 Pro or the ultrawid... moreIn theory, u dont need monochrome sensor anymore on P30, its camera acting like one as its using RYYB sensor that capture 40% more light.
Clever technique by Huawei.
I think it's a good deal for the price. This phone is meant to compete with the XR & the E, and I think it's very competitive with those two.
I want to know this: Would you prefer the B&W lens on the previous P20 Pro or the ultrawide lens on the latest P30?
Because as far as I can see in terms of camera setup, that's the only difference between each other. I do aware about the dual-LED flash on the P30, but that's not much important.

No I don't agree with this point kirin 9... moreKirin 980 and Exynos 9820 have similar CPU performance. Exynos 9820 has faster GPU, but P30 has lower resolution of S10, so it's a bit faster in 3D. Yet S10e is far more faster for its lower resolution as well.
Main problem of Exynos is very poorly written governors. Exynos-based devices hogging the battery very dramatically and lagging quite a lot up to serious freezes sometimes.
Yet comparing to Kirin 980, Exynos 9820 is capable of 4K60 recording and has Wi-Fi 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) support.
One important thing about Gsmarena Review that they Do Not comment on "Call Quality" of cellphones generally.
There is a section called Audio Quality where speaker's performance is particularity mentioned or described.
My point is Call Quality is also important as far as mobile phone is concerned. Clarity of other side's talks, noise reduction quality, volume in both side talks, how other party is hearing... these all are very important points to be taken care of and mentioned clearly in the review...

No I don't agree with this point kirin 980 is more powerful than exynos 9820
i see no difference really, my note8 still can take good picture thou. hehe.
Looks like all "telephoto" pictures in review are crop of main camera... Is it doing it automatically? Or you may be using slider for zoom instead of 3x button?
