About Huawei 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.
