About P30 - Review, Specs + more

Compared to the slightly more expensive P30 Pro with quad camera, the Huawei P30 is a bit daintier. The OLED screen is not 6.4 inches, but 6.1 inches tall and has no edges drawn into the frame laterally. The resolution is identical. As with the Pro model you have to settle for a Full HD Plus resolution, which offers "only" 2340 × 1080 pixels, as the only negative.

  5. Our Verdict on the P30: Conclusion

Starting with the camera setup: the same front camera with 32 megapixels is integrated at the upper edge of the display. The necessary display notch is a bit more discreet compared to the predecessor - the Huawei P20. Thanks to the acoustic display technology, the normal P30 model does without a visible speaker above the display.

To ensure that the device looks as if it is made of all one piece, Huawei have made sure that rear side is also covered with a coated glass surface. In addition to plain black you have the choice between iridescent Breathing Crystal and Aurora. The striking Amber Sunrise with a gradient from yellow to orange is reserved for the Pro model, sadly.

Triple camera and modified sensor

The P30 uses a Leica camera module with 3 optics. The wide-angle main camera resolves like the Pro model 40 megapixels and is also supported by an optical image stabiliser. For tight spaces, an ultra wide-angle camera with 16 megapixels is available. For distant subjects, you can use a telephoto lens with 8-megapixel sensor and optical image stabilizer.

What's missing is the Pro model's time-of-flight camera to enhance the photos with a simulated bokeh. That said, even this cheaper model photographs with a SuperSpectrum sensor that captures the colours via red, yellow and blue filters. However, cost cutting has crept in, of course: in the night mode because the sensor has only half the sensitivity of the more expensive model: instead of ISO 409.600, it is only ISO 204.800.

But even this value should be sufficient for illuminated night scenes for most users. You can read more about this here.

Huawei P30: Powerful processor

With regard to the remaining equipment, there are only a few differences to the more expensive model. Inside, the same Kirin 980 processor works, with less than 8 GB of RAM, but only 6 GB of RAM. The internal memory for your personal data is generally 128 GB.

Want to expand the internal memory? This is only possible with the help of in-house nano-memory cards. Conventional Micro SD cards can not be used.

The device supports the use of 2 SIM cards. The operating system is the version Android 9 Pie, to unlock the smartphone, a fingerprint sensor is integrated in the display. That the battery with 3650 mAh fails smaller than the Pro model, is also noticeable in the total weight: instead of 192 g, the P30 weighs only 165g.

Huawei P30 review: Design, key features

Last time around, we were disappointed with the regular Huawei P20 for various reasons, but not because of the design. That continues in 2019 with the Huawei P30, which looks stunning in its shimmering... sheen. I'm loathed to credit anything to Huawei’s marketing team here but, let’s face it, “transcendent iridescence” isn’t far off.

Huawei P30 Performance and battery life

Internally, there’s nothing at all wrong with the Huawei P30, though. In fact, it uses the same chipset as the pricier Huawei P30 Pro – the 2.6GHz octa-core Kirin 980 – with only the RAM (6GB) and storage (128GB) differing.

Our Verdict on the P30: Conclusion

The Huawei P30 presents itself as a high-quality everyday cell phone, dispensing with the luxurious features of the Pro model. If you do not need a 50x Superzoom, a portrait mode with digital Bokeh and no strongly contoured display, you should not be disappointed.

The modern in-house processor and the sufficient memory also promise a smooth handling without annoying delays. Only the FullHD+ display is not quite up to date for this price range and is the only negative we could find - the PRO is probably the model to go for.

Is SIM Only better for P30?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Huawei P30, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Huawei P30 ee contract or a Huawei P30 Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Huawei P30 contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 9400 Huawei P30 deals, our cheapest Huawei P30 deal over the entire life of the contract is £397.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Huawei P30 SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Huawei P30 handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Huawei P30 Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Huawei P30 phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
