cannot use GMS.
lower than snapdragon865 Devices (no match for Iphone 11)... more'No stereo speakers'
- Dont care much. More onto earphone quality, which sufficient with Dolby Atmos.
'cannot use GMS'
- Yes u can, with 15min sideloading installation.
'lower than snapdragon865 Devices (no match for Iphone 11)'
- Only in benchmark specsheet, no different in real-life usage.
'Only the camera is excellent'
- + 40w both wired & wireless charge, and camera is the most crucial parts for a flagship, which P40 excel.
'If I just need a camera, I'll buy a DSLR'
- Good luck fitting your DSLR in your pocket.
maybe you should blur the license plates made readable by crazy 50MP AI Ultra Clarity mode
sold my s10 and bought a p40 pro after being with samsung for 10 years.
Best decision ever, i got so tired of s10`s shitty fingerprint sensor that is present on s20 series too , battery was pretty bad on s10 exinos crap too.
The fingerprint and face recognition is miles above my s10 and the camera blows me away especially in the dark.
Took me 15 mins to install google and have all of my favorite google apps.
ZERO regrets .
I'm the type of guy who usually changes his phone every 2 years but i was so close to rage break my s10 because of fingerprint failling me on important situations that i couldn't stand it anymore.
Let's see in 2 years what each will have to offer but i have a feeling samsung won't convince me to come back to their overpriced crap.
fast charge..., 13 Jun 2020take care of fast charge. the battery can wear out more quickly by time. one of my former mobi... moreplease don't put non-IP phones into refrigerators, they will condense water inside.
for online taxi driver very very dependent to Google Maps.
So huawei and honor are dead for every people with online delivery job.
Only less people know how to hack and reboot Google into new huawei phone.

kerul, 11 Jun 2020It's not addiction, it's truth you have to swallow it. And tell me which company is not spying... moreI have a Mate 30 pro without GMS
I have the Google maps app working perfect also Facebook and Messenger apps Gmail I don't use anyway
The huawei app store gets better daily
You can install Aptoide for the other apps
I don't care about GMS
I would use this phone even without Facebook or Maps
as I don't use them a lot
Monopols like Google are never good for society and must be fought
mandalaphone, 12 Jun 2020Paying or not depends on your priorities. I'm not a brand follower and I won't defend Huawei's... moreHey thanks, very few like yours I found Here.
Number one pricing doesn't matter for me if it's worth. But I've mentioned why it's not worth, it's not only GMS. Speaker, ugly cutout and I don't understand this cutout. If you want to house Good Hardware they can use a small bezel, but they want innovation :)
Second I never said I can't live without GMS, Im talking in general that more than 70% Android users don't feel it friendly and it's truth.
Third thing I said of someone will come up with solid base not in terms of completeness, but their base usage must be solid. We ditched Microsoft in early 2005 and adopted Linux in our office, but before adopting it we have gone through some basic tests and determined how easy it would be to transform complete development on Linux. So, it's not that I stick with what is their but I personally don't see any easy transformation from GMS to Huawei Store.
And in last may be I'm wrong but as per my experience as a developer and how technology is moving ahead, I'm not seeing any competition to these tech giants in near future. Creating and maintaining application for new platform or play service is in current era is not acceptable for most of the businesses. Acceptence in normal user For new platform needs lots of publicity and then give them a completeness. And this acceptence leads to innovation and success to any innovation.
May be still you think that I'm negative, but 20 years in development teach me if you see something more positively more the chances of logical bugs arise in system. So it's me may be I'm not too positive but what I am thinking is right.
Let's see what is there in a future.
I still don't get why the Mate 30 Pro still takes way more refined pictures than any other newer Huawei flagships, but reviewers all claim that the newer ones are king or such.
Edu, 12 Jun 2020I prefer the Mi 10 pro, this one it's too expensive and don't have a huge difference. Definitely they're not comparable, P40 pro+ is miles ahead of everyone
mandalaphone, 12 Jun 2020Paying or not depends on your priorities. I'm not a brand follower and I won't defend Huawei's... moreAbsolutely truth, Huawei/Honor are miles ahead of their competitors on innovations!
fast charge..., 13 Jun 2020take care of fast charge. the battery can wear out more quickly by time. one of my former mobi... moreYour other suggestion of 20% charge is even worse. Li ion and Li polymer batteries must neither be fully charged nor discharged. The recommended charge for storage is around 40_50%. Below 25% might damage the cell as well. More "reliable" info is found here:
fast charge..., 13 Jun 2020take care of fast charge. the battery can wear out more quickly by time. one of my former mobi... moreIt's actually your suggestion that would cause premature cell damage. One should exclusively use the charger provided by the manufacturer. The charging process is actually software controlled and has some engineering behind it. This is the reason why many new phones turn on while charging. On old phones one could simply turn off the phone and charge it to obtain the fastest possible results with the least wear. Current phones turn on to allow the software to control the charging process, which is charge and capacity dependent.
Enjoy your fast charging without second thoughts.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2020Infact it is the gimmick 3d face unlock that doesn't work properly and can be easily fooled in... moreActually one Dutch organisation conducted a test on face unlock accuracy last year, and the phones with 3D face scanners (iPhones and Mate 20 Pro) didn't face any issues with it. Any source that 3D facial unlock can be "easily fooled" in "many scenario"?
take care of fast charge. the battery can wear out more quickly by time. one of my former mobiles (motorola) wore out quickly bc of fast charging.
I now just use a linear charger such as ikea with 3 ports.
when not using the device i store it at 20% (power off). otherwise i charge within 20%-80%. you can also put it in the refrigerator if you dont use it for a longer time.
There is no google playstore ! But no problem for me:
gmail: i use GMX with k-9 mail (the only imap app that has not (-) when searching for mails), k-9 might not work with gmail but outlook also is quite good. K-9 for me the best pop and imap e-mail client
photos: can upload and view with chrome
keep: can use chrome
music: does not work, copied mp3 and flacs and use vlc, pulsar or musicolet
youtube: per browser or an app called newpipe
Hangouts and dialer: dont work, can be replaced with skype
maps: use browser or herewego
calendar: use outlook or onecalendar (login on google account)
google drive: can still download in chrome but also use mega and gmx cloud (up to 6 gigs free if activated)
earth: still works
chrome: chrome still works but firefox too (and has good addins)
google translate: still works
google play: pure, apkmirror, apkmonk, huawei appgallery or petal (to to make updates)
app transfer: huawei phone clone (from huawei to huawei)
solid file manager license still works after phone clone but u can also use MK explorer
Xodo doesnt work but use foxit which is good as well, tripadvisor shows message that it wont work but even though it works good, androffice does not work, all other non google apps that i tested do work.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2020atleast p40 pro/pro plus comes with proper 3d face unlock.Infact it is the gimmick 3d face unlock that doesn't work properly and can be easily fooled in a variety of scenarios.
Besides, so many ppl complaining about it not working properly with a mask during covd19.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2020Some android user doesn't understand that under disply fingerprint scanner google did not even... moreKeep lying hater!
Under the display fingerprint scanner and 120hz, both work flawlessly on Android.
IOS brand boys literally have to resort to lies to feel good about their inferior OS.
Haha, Whatever makes you sleep at night!
