About Huawei P30 Pro - Review, Specs + more

So here it is. With the P30 Pro, Huawei has made it clear that it's fully committed to its innovation of the quad camera - up from three cameras in the previous model the P20 Pro.

Are we stuck in an arms race with manufacturers - but this time with each one adding more cameras? It does seem so; the iPhone 11 Pro features 4 camera too. But is this pointless, and is the older P20 Pro still the better purchase? Let's find out...

Contents:

With the P30 Pro, it's clear that a lot of changes have been made almost immediately. While the design of the phone hasn't changed much at all, the specs have - particularly with those 4 cameras. With this, you now get advanced zoom function, modified colour recognition, and the optimised night mode offers you entirely new possibilities in smartphone photography.

High-end smartphone with quad camera

Huawei's flagship P30 Pro uses a 4-lens Leica camera module designed to eliminate many of the limitations of previous camera smartphones. The actual main camera captures the scenery with the angle of view of a 28mm wide-angle lens. For softer recordings from the hand, an optical image stabiliser is integrated as standard, and in our tests here at oneCOMPARE, the 40-megapixel photos are extremely convincing; with natural colours and great detail. If you need an even larger angle of view for narrow interiors or group photos, you can rely on the 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.

If the P20 Pro takes photographs with an 18 mm optic and it comes out distorted, then don't worry because largely these will be corrected the AI - it's all very clever. The test photos from this review are worth checking out - they're mega-detailed!

P30 Pro: The best zoom, hands down

The zoom lens, which is carefully integrated into the space-saving periscope design, is technically complex. The basis is a 5x optical zoom and an 8 megapixel sensor with image stabiliser. With the support of the software you can use a hybrid zoom with up to 10x magnification. The images we took are mightily impressive and show great image quality with barely perceptible digital artifacts. In superzoom mode with 50x magnification, the image stabiliser is strongly demanded. Even if contours are rendered very softly, and surfaces lose a lot of texture it doesn't matter, far-off details are still easily recognisable.

Digital bokeh and new night mode

The cameras are supplemented by a fourth "assistance" sensor. The Time of Flight (TOF) camera provides distance information so you can enhance the photos with a digitally simulated bokeh.

Again in our tests there were no problems here: the portrait mode with blurred background in most cases is very realistic.

Additional flexibility is offered by the new night mode, which boasts a sensitivity of up to ISO 409,600, and thanks to the modified colour detection with red, blue and yellow filters, significantly more colour information should also be captured at night.

Videos takes the smartphone in rich 4K to the next level,  but it remains at a frame rate of a maximum of 30 frames per second. Hopefully this'll be boosted in future.

Rounded edges, Full HD Plus resolution

The front side is dominated by an OLED display with laterally recessed edges. It doesn't look much different to other phones on the market, except once you turn the screen on, then the differences are clear.

In contrast to the cheaper Huawei P30, the screen size of 6.47 inches is slightly larger. The Full HD Plus resolution of 2340 × 1080 points, on the other hand, is comparatively low for a high-end device. Unlike the predecessor P20 Pro, the  Notch now is almost discreetly hidden away.

Added to the P20 is the 32 megapixel front camera for selfies. A visible front speaker is completely eliminated, as the entire screen passes the sound waves through the acoustic display technology. if this sounds impressive, it's because it is.

The back of the smartphone is also adorned with a glass surface, which is available in the colours Amber Sunrise, Breathing Crystal, Aurora or in Black.

To unlock the device, the manufacturer does not rely on the elaborate 3D face scanner of the previous model. Instead, you have a simpler 2D scanner and a built-in fingerprint sensor available. This is a welcome change as it was extremely complicated to use for most users.

Powerful processor with decent memory

For computing power, the in-house Kirin 980 processor with a memory of 8 GB really shines. Pre-installed is the Android operating system 9.0 Pie , and according to this review, the P30 Pro works fast and without delays with this current equipment.

For archiving your personal data, cat images and media you can choose between a 128 GB or 256 GB memory.

To use two networks, 2 SIM card slots are integrated in the device, however, the P30 Pro dispenses with a micro SD card slot for expanding the internal memory sadly. A slight negative.

On the other hand, the permanently installed battery with a capacity of 4200 mAh is generously dimensioned. You can charge using the standard USB-C charger or the optional Wireless Wireless Quick Charger. With the built-in Reverse Charge feature, it's also possible to charge other mobile devices through your smartphone.

Our Verdict on the P30 Pro

Three months after I started using the P30 Pro, our reviewer is still blown away by how good this device is. He switched between a few phones in that time, but keep coming back to the P30 Pro just because of that camera at the back. It just does a great job in any lighting condition, and while it may not be quite as consistent as the Pixel 3 XL, it does a better job in low-light conditions, and there are more sensors at the back. If you can afford it, we'd recommend it.

If you don't want to spend as much on this, then consider the lesser (but still great) regular Huawei P30 model.

How much does the P30 Pro cost?

The Dual Sim model costs £650, and the single Sim model costs about £400. That's quite a difference in price.

If you prefer to pay monthly, then the cheapest deal currently is only £13.99 a month with £200 upfront. We compare deals on phones like the P30 Pro every day, so find your perfect plan above for the Huawei and drag the sliders to adjust the plan to exactly what you want.

P30 Pro deals: How long does delivery take?

If your device is in stock with the retailer, then most orders will be shipped by them within 24 hours so you could have your phone tomorrow morning. If it's a pre-order then we will let you know the approximate delivery date

Is SIM Only better for P30 Pro?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Huawei P30 Pro, 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 Pro ee contract or a Huawei P30 Pro 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 Pro 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 10900 Huawei P30 Pro deals, our cheapest Huawei P30 Pro deal over the entire life of the contract is £408.00, 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 Pro 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 Pro handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Huawei P30 Pro 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 Pro phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
