About the Phone
Huawei P30 Pro is all set to define photography and tap into the market of photographers. A few pros and cons are:
- With the glass and metal chassis, the Huawei P30 Pro arrives as a premium phone that glistens against the light.
- It has wireless charging as well as reverse charging.
- The phone comes with a robust in-house processor Kirin 980 which can run different apps without a problem.
- The massive battery of Huawei P30 Pro has the potential to run the phone for two days with moderate use. Plus, it comes with fast charging tech.
- The main highlight of P30 Pro is the beautiful set of rear camera which comes with the RYYB sensor developing amazing daylight shots and low-light images without dropping the photo quality.
- The performance of Huawei P30 Pro is admirable, but it doesn’t reach the blazing fast speed of Samsung S10 Plus.
- The selfie camera is quite average and produces average images which lack details.
The Huawei P30 Pro is a capable phone that can match against premium sets like the Samsung S10 Plus. If you are someone who has a love for photography, then the Huawei P30 Pro can be a great buy.
Entering the new year, the Huawei P30 Pro is all set to become a camera king of the flagship market. Priced at Rs.71,990, the phone brings in all the premium hardware that makes it a Huawei flagship.
As a king of ultra-tech cameras, the Huawei P30 Pro comes with a difference, changing the very philosophy of photography on which the previous Huawei P series used to stand on. Along with that, it arrives with robust hardware and decent display, all of which make this a masterpiece in the fierce competition of premium handsets.
Huawei P30 Pro Price in India
In India, Huawei P30 Pro price is Rs.60,990 and it is available on Amazon. Huawei P30 Pro is sold with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and there are no variants. As for the colour options, there are two colour options in Huawei P30 Pro: Aurora, Breathing Crystal colours. This smartphone device offers the best camera option and the best battery life also, which is a really good all-around smartphone.
It is expected that the hole-punch camera will be the trend in 2019, but P30 Pro comes with a difference. It has a dewdrop front with a bulky build due to the massive battery that it holds. You won’t find any speakers on this phone. Instead, it uses magnets to create vibrations and projects the audio directly to your ears.
The curved sides make it easy to hold, and the glass gives it a premium touch along with an attractive glistening. The gradient effect amplifies the appearance while the metal chassis makes it robust and reliable. However, the glass makes the phone a bit slippery too. Since the phone arrives with wireless charging, glass is the only option till now.
The Huawei P30 Pro arrives with a dew-drop notch that allows the user enough screen space to work with. The phone comes with a 6.47-inch FHD+ Resolution with the latest 19:5:9 aspect ratio. In general, the display on the phone is stellar. The colors are bright and punchy, and the phone is quite sharp.
The viewing angles are great too. However, this phone is far from being the sharpest phone in the market. In comparison, Samsung Galaxy’s incredible AMOLED screen steals the title, providing deeper colors, excellent contrast, and intense colors as well.
The P30 Pro comes with Huawei’s octa-core Kirin 980 processor which is the same as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Plus, this phone arrives with 8GB RAM. Just like the Mate 20 Pro, this phone is a beautiful performer. It can run any games with high-end graphics without entering in lag mode.
App switching is easy, and you can run multiple apps without a problem. Even the AI-enabled EMUI works efficiently. However, the phone performance does not guarantee that it will be suitable enough to run for 12-24 months. While a solid performer, the Kirin 980 processor does not reach the performance heights of Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
The real grab of Huawei P30 Pro is its camera. It comes with three rear cameras, the main being the 40MP camera with an f/1.6 aperture. Along with that, there is a 20MP ultra-wide camera and a fantastic 8MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. The P20 Pro has a large pack of cameras which made it an instant hit, and with P30 Pro, you get a modified version of it.
The P30 Pro comes with a beautiful 3x lossless optical zoom, and now, it has been increased to 5x optical zoom. Plus, it comes with a 10x lossless hybrid zoom, a feature which uses AI to sharpen the images and remove any jerks due to shaking hands. But Huawei hasn’t just worked on its zoom. I
t has started from scratch and used a new quadruple camera system. Unlike the Red-Green-Blue (RGB) sensor, the camera captures Red-Yellow-Yellow-Blue (RYYB), making the yellow absorb more light than the Green parts, and thus, gathering a lot more information.
The zoom feature is phenomenal: it is crystal clear and works well even at night. In daylight, the images appear sharp and beauty and lack the fuzziness that Samsung S10 phones have. The low light doesn’t take a hit either, coming with a beautiful contrast as well.
The P30 Pro arrives with a massive 32MP selfie camera – which has both HDR and super low-light features. While the sensor is massive, the phone does not produce as good selfies as the rear set. The images lack detail and the beauty mode make them artificial.
Huawei P30 Pro arrives with a massive 4,200 mAh battery. Even after hours of heavy use, like gaming, the phone did not lose much of its charge, getting to 45% – which leaves about 17 and a half hour of charge. This phone could efficiently run for two days without a problem, even with moderate use.
Plus, the 40W SuperCharge that the phone comes with can get the phone from 0 to 70% within half an hour. Moreover, you have the wireless charging as well as reverse charging which will enable you to charge other’s phone with your handset.
Huawei P30 Pro comes with one main highlight – the camera. Starting from scratch, the RYYB sensor and incredible low-light capabilities make P30 Pro standout in the market. It even tackles Samsung Galaxy S10’s fuzzy captures. Regarding design, Huawei stands true to its similar design and it looks quite good too.
However, the performance of the phone does not seem next-gen and can be easily beaten by competitors. Other than that, the P30 Pro is a camera king and keep taking the title for Huawei. It is an ideal handset for photographers.
