Seriously? The most versatile zooming capability is the breathtaking feature on this phone. It's also got a near-800-nit well colour calibrated display with dynamic refresh rate, 40W wired AND wireless charging, one of the best microphone array on a phone, better front and back cameras in auto and presumably longer battery life than Xperia 1 II. Lack of stereo speakers and Google Services are things that I agree with you on, and yes this phone is overpriced given what it delivers, but as for the rest of the points you've made you're being too harsh IMO.

Lets hope mate brings better lens and possibly jack. No phone can rival xperia colors though.

If _you_ can't live without GMS (pretty scary though, sounds like addiction) doesn't mean that others can't. Many europeans despise US spying companies like Google, FB, etc. Talk about yourself, 'techie'.
Toby, 11 Jun 2020Its better overal package. Try both selife and rear cam and u ll seeHow can you call it overall package when you all you getting here is zoom details. No manual control or features like X1 II. No 3.5mm or stereo speakers. Even display Xperia is dominant with 4K and colour accuracy. No breathtaking features like HS power control, Wind filter reduction, 20fps AE/AF. Even design is ugly with punchloe and same like 1000+ other smartphones. Compromise in google services, yet they demanding for 1400 Euros. Basically you are paying 1400 Euros only to get that super zoom details. I still don't understand there are bunch of other alternatives which are superior to this one. Yet it was rated 4.5. If at all any smartphone deserves 4.5 or above this year. Xperia 1 II is the only one.
kerul, 10 Jun 2020I agreed, past few months I noticed they are trying to convince that even without Google Servi... moreBased on your logic companies should stop innovating. They should settle with what's available and what's easy to market. Huawei is commended for their endeavors. Whether they were forced to go that way or willingly.
It is also obvious from your comment that you haven't even tried to work a new Huawei phones. I would pick them over GMS anytime of the day.
Plus if you really think that Huawei products are so useless and not worth trying, why did you go through the review and write a comment?
Xperia 1 II is 10x better than this 1400 Euros 10X zoom smartphone. Why does it get 4.5 rating while Xperia only gets 4.3 ???
I do not understand how people judge the beauty. This phone has almost same front design as Samsung S10+ which was rebuked for dual front camera cutout but now they says P40 Pro+ looks beautiful! For many years, GSMArena said they didn't like the curved display of Samsung for irritating accidental touch but with 4 side curves they have not found any problem with P40 Pro series!
May be a bit biased towards Huawei?
Phones fan, 10 Jun 2020Huawei is paying the price of stealing and infringing copyrights. Everyone else got what they deserved too.

Heck Huawei locks bootloaders with no way of unlocking it.
So rooting not possible on p40 pro+
Simple 5 min video on YouTube gives you step-by-step instructions on how to install play services on Huawei.

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2020Oh well he doesn't care if production cost increases for Apple. He thinks that American money ... moreclearly ... this person only thinking in one dimension only ... only thinking about money to get, like nothing else matters ... how narrow minded ...
to make the money goes to where it suppose to go ... MUST have the working attitudes like ... STOP complaining, STOP asking for benefits, STOP demands for raise, from top managements to bottoms MUST be trimmed skinny while maintaining respect and harmony from all aspects such as relations with peers, b2b, and customers ... with the goals of MAX quality, MAX output, MIN cost, and must be supported by governments, such as low tax, none of any extra costs from the government ... see if the factory can beat CHEAPER cost of production ... even to beat its own achievements ... will American people be happy to buy Dell, HP, Cisco, Linksys, Cadillac, Buick, Chevrolet, MACK, KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Levis, Herseys and any other tons of American brand 100 percents MADE IN USA with cheaper price than imports and better quality and comes up with heavenly customer supports
even the Chinese will SURE fall IF they become greedy and pursue for more benefits, for more money
so this 10x (8.5x) zoom is what, 10% better than the last year's 5x on p30 pro?
also, the 5 apps i use on a phone - chrome, youtube, maps, gmail + camera single handed. ladies and gentlemen, for 1400 eur, we have neither.
let's not talk about the "ultra" "wide".
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2020Would be nice to see a tele comparison with the P40 Pro.No significant differences, why would anyone need 10x zoom anyway, this is more of a luxury item with the ceramic components. The P40 Pro offers more "value" for money (I think we should stop talking about value once we go beyond 700$). Anyway, no GMS, no thanks.
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2020Huawei has been accused of being an arm of chinese government.
Trump thinks they can use 5G ... moreYou're wasting your time. Some people here put too much stock in Huawei. In reality they have no presence on American soil. trump doesn't attack Huawei. He responds to other people's questions about Huawei. He's spoken with more anger against Apple because it would do wonders for his administration if Apple brought their manufacturing back to America under his lead. It's a trump vs. China issue. It has little to do with Huawei. The US was investigating Huawei as far back as the previous administration over patent infringement. It's the same ole story with China.
Huawei has the same problem Samsung has. You can out gimmick an iphone, but you can't out brand Apple. The iphone is a luxury device. Huawei and Samsung's flagships are not. The only phone that comes close is the Galaxy Fold. I honestly believe Huawei's 5g tech on US soil will do more for their brand than a flagship phone.
Americans don't buy iphones because they are showing national pride like other countries. They buy it in part because they are vain. It's like owning a BMW or Benz. There is nothing vain about a P40 Pro at this point. So this idea trump's ban is holding back Huawei from dominating like Jordan in his prime is laughable.
