Alex, 09 Oct 2019People only see what they want to see, and only hear what they want to hear, so am not fan for... moreTnx to your explanation about Iphone you helped me in picking my new phone. I'm planning to replace my XZ Premium and i couldn't decide which one to choose - to be honest i wasn't thinking about junk Iphone, and don't think about it now. You just helped me in proving myself that most Iphone user are ignorant and trolls. Thats why im going for P30 Pro. BIG TNX.
Yep, best phone currently on the market in overall, IF you are a lot into camera.
It's worse than Galaxy in a number of areas, but Galaxy, apart from lack of 5x optical zoom, is self-destroyed by the abysmal charging battery performance, software and hardware bugs (dropping Wi-Fi), the deplorable 8nm Exynos for International markets, and really, really awkward hardware button placement. (Let's not talk about the "Bixby" thing.)
Galaxy has much better Camera UI (good single-handed operation w/o accidental edge touch incl. fluent, full-range zooming, dedicated video button in the main camera mode), and much faster and more accurate focusing. Also much prettier Always On Display.
But who cares if you can only use it for the first 4 hours of a photo-intense trip, and then it needs several hours to charge.
P30 Pro was the fist phone that allowed me to escape from Samsung where I've been since Galaxy S4 to Galaxy S10+.
I hope the P40 Pro will not do something retarded that will change that. (Not worried about not-preinstalled Google apps in the slightest, there will always be a way how to post-install.)
A workmate has one, it's amazing, but there are two claims: video and stereo sounds, that's all.

Alex, 09 Oct 2019People only see what they want to see, and only hear what they want to hear, so am not fan for... moreSo what about how how apple copied Huawei on camera module which is rubbish now common don't be a hatter leave everyone to make a choice he or she likes
CrunchLife, 08 Oct 2019"color accuracy is good" hmm... I wouldn't say so. The greens are too greens, the sky is looki... moreDid you eve read the review? The reviewer states the colors are not 100% accurate but they are very close highlighting them a little bit to make them look more lively. You may say they are bad but I personally find them all much more pleasing.
Alex, 09 Oct 2019People only see what they want to see, and only hear what they want to hear, so am not fan for... moreWhy are you in a P30 review threat trying to convince everyone IPhones are better? Do you realize you come off as a troll?
This is all subjective. this P30 pro has nothing to envy on the IPhone XS or 11 even if people like you pretend IPhone is all better. Hardware and software wise both phones are perfectly capable of handling anything you throw on them. so it all comes down to the IOS and Android and what you like better, stress in what YOU like.
Good review and very good idea to give feedback after longer usage of the phone.
I know P30 Pro is night and day ahead of Mate 30 Pro (physical volume buttons, can easily be put in a case and easier to hold (no nonsense extreme curve), no ugly iphonelike notch, 5x optical zoom and wider cine camera plus Google services and Play Store!! Hack, even batterylife is better on P30 Pro since it has smaller battery, Google services to drain them and yet it scores in gsmarena battery benchmarks roughly same as Mate 30 Pro. And the Cons of Mate 30 Pro can continue, but my real question to you gsmarena, is how on Earth do you archieve 5 hours of screen on time on the first day (is it Netflix watching?) and then another 4 hours the next day before the phone is plugged in again?? I only get maybe 7 hours of use if I watch Newflix all day long but then my P30 Pro will die the same day (as well as my eyes).
What variant, software version and the build number did you use in this long term review??
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2019I stopped reading at "iPhone 11 blows everything out of the water". LolPeople only see what they want to see, and only hear what they want to hear, so am not fan for any phone or platform but for me the better is iphone and I¬íll explain why. There is no perfect phone, and huawei is rubbish copy everything and try to improve current features so they look the best, but it¬ís not like that my friend used huawei in the current year 3 phones broke and got replaced remember the green screen on mate 20 series... Samsung is not bad but selling exynos crap is no no for me, if i have to choose always will be snapdragon or a13. A13 current the fastest, and for the photogaphy try to take some photos day and nigh and compare them with professional monitor 4k and if still in doubt get some friends and do a blind test with them huawei is 0, not good colours and photos are too red, Anyway nowadays phones are very fast and can handle everything but we got to the point of software where people choose what is best for them simplicity of ios or customisations of android but the problem is evey phone maker got own version if android and usually a lot of bugs and not regular updates, for example the last time I bought samsung S8 for family member and Iphone 8 plus for me, today Iphone 8 plus runs latest ios and still very fast you can buy second hand in shops for 450£ but lets see Galaxy S8 no Android 10 and maximum you can get is 200£. Even i saw S8 few months ago selling in the shops brand new around 500£, its really strange selling product that is not supported in future updates. But that¬ís not true for fanboys, still samsung is better, or huawei :) for me personally don¬ít like Chinese crap phones even laughed when i saw huawei asking 899£ for p30 pro and now more then 1000 for mate 30, its crap.
John, 08 Oct 2019Try it yourself if you don't believe. Open camera app with volume button for example and take ... moreAh, but you can take a fully focused photo from lock screen to photo in 0.3 seconds. It even tells you how long it took to take the photo.
Ranga, 08 Oct 2019I am using it One of best phone No hassle Very easy features and battery life What about buying it now? Is it worth to spend money on it? I'm looking for a phone for long term use. Camera is my main concern.
Boe198, 08 Oct 2019I'm sorry but you're not feeling well I guess. S7 edge: you're just silly Try it yourself if you don't believe. Open camera app with volume button for example and take a photo. P30 pro focusing takes a whole second whereas s7 edge focuses and takes a photo almost instantly.
In Long term even Chinese people don't want this, that's the power of freedom
