100 days with Huawei P30 Pro: the versatile smartphone with a question mark

Many people were fascinated by the Huawei P30 Pro from the beginning, including me. But how has it gone in the three months I've spent with him? Here is everything you need to know about Huawei's latest flagship after this time together.

The advantages of the Huawei P30 Pro

A versatile camera

The P30 Pro confirms once again the promises made in the photographic sector. Beyond the figures (there are four sensors on the back: 40MP Super Spectrum, a 20MP wide angle, an 8MP periscope, Ty and a depth of field TOF sensor), the P30 Pro offers an intuitive, fast camera application and easy to use. Portraits, night shots and the use of zoom are not a problem at all, but rather the strengths of this smartphone. And with the zoom the fun is guaranteed: the best results in terms of detail and without noise are obtained in 5x, but even with the 10x the photos taken are not bad. In the P30 Pro we also have the wide angle, which after the Mate 20 Pro, finally reaches the P series and makes the photographic experience even more complete. I have always appreciated the presence of the wide-angle lens on LG V-series smartphones, and finding it in the P30 Pro is a pleasure for me, since I love taking urban photos.

Compared to the P20 Pro, you can turn the AI ​​on and off with a touch, a feature that I find very convenient especially with some landscapes such as green grass extensions (sometimes artificial intelligence goes hand in hand). I suggest you take a look at the function that allows you to choose between standard, sharp and delicate colors (by opening the camera application, you will find the icon in the upper left of the general configuration).

Excellent autonomous

The P30 pro is an excellent companion for adventure, work and free time. The built-in 4200mAh battery never runs out before the end of the day, which keeps you away from any external battery. Usually, I recharge my Huawei P30 Pro the afternoon of the next day, at the office, and in some cases my smartphone still has a 30% subtraction.

The fast charge at 40W gives you the extra boost when you need to recharge your smartphone in a short time. The P30 Pro also supports wireless charging of up to 12W and reverse charging, a feature that I had never used before and that could be useful to help your friends.

A panoramic screen

With this screen, the P30 Pro offers a really good experience. The AMOLED 6.47 "panel with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels is exceptional in terms of color representation, contrast and viewing angles. Even if you wear polarized sunglasses you will have no trouble reading the screen.

With a 19.5: 9 aspect and a drop-shaped notch, the P30 Pro's screen is perfectly suited for games and multimedia thanks to its compatibility with HDR10 technology and the DCI-P3 color gamut. The different customization options on the screen menu allow you to adjust the temperature and color intensity, activate the eye protection mode and the Always on Display mode, a convenient alternative to the absence of LED notification of this P30 Pro The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 6 but I recommend using a protective film against possible scratches, the ma already shows some ….

What I don't like about the Huawei P30 Pro

Facial unlock does not work in the dark

Unlocking the P30 Pro quickly is not a problem, that is clear. Unfortunately, Huawei has decided not to integrate a 3D type facial recognition system, such as the one present in the Mate 20 Pro, and this means that it is not possible to unlock the device in the dark and that a less secure unlocking system is available. I don't know about you, but I often want to unlock my smartphone with my face at night while watching Netflix on my sofa at home or, for example, while I'm in a club. And in those situations I regret the absence of 3D face unlocking …

The alternative is to unlock it with the fingerprint reader built into the screen. This last method works without problems, unless you have wet hands, but personally I think that the best experience is offered by 3D face unlocking. A shame ….

A smartphone that suffers heat

Made of glass and metal, it's easy to imagine how the P30 Pro can suffer from high temperatures. The frame and, in particular, the body become very hot when temperatures rise. On these unexpectedly hot days, when the temperature exceeds 30C, my P30 Pro is usually hot, even when I carry it in my boloa. You probably don't like the beach too much …

An uncertain future

Trump's ban on the Huawei group may raise some doubts when buying this smartphone. The main concern is related to software updates: the P30 Pro receive Android Q? And what about Android R?

The updates should be taken for granted on a flagship launched in 2019, but at the moment we don't know how to end this story. The latest rumors raise the mood of those who already own the P30 Pro and those who are considering buying it: Huawei is working hard to ensure the launch of Android Q on their devices, including the P30 Pro. For now, the only certainty is that The P30 Pro continue to receive monthly security updates.

After these 100 days together I can say that I am satisfied with the Huawei P30 Pro because, as I expected, it is a smartphone that at the same time is nice to see and offer a good performance (in our analysis you can find more information related to the performance offered). I would have preferred a slightly smaller size, such as the Mate 20 Pro or P20 Pro, but in these three months I have become accustomed to its size and even handling it with one hand is no problem. If you decide to buy it, you can be sure that you will get a smartphone that will make you company for more than a day, capable of capturing the best of your memorable moments (it is no coincidence that together with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G dominates the DxOMark ranking).

There is still a small (or large) question mark in the face of the US problem. against Huawei: investing in a high-end device like the P30 Pro also means having long-term guarantees with updates and, for now, there is no certainty about it. Personally, I hope that this situation will be unlocked soon because it will be a shame to deprive our market and users in general of a similar device. It will be necessary to wait until August to know more, but if you are deciding which flagship to buy, check out our list of the best devices that currently exist in the market:
