On April 4 this year, the UK technology website TechAdvisor released an evaluation of Huawei P30 Pro. Perhaps many people don’t know the status of TechAdvisor in the UK and the global technology community. Their content covers assessments, guides, tutorials and news, with more than 42 million hits per month. TechAdvisor is not only the largest technology website in the UK, but also the world’s leading technology media.
Foreign media TechAdvisor has always used the “five-star system” to judge the recommendation of a product. This time they gave the Huawei P30 Pro a four-and-a-half-and-half recommendation. They also gave the basis below: “Huawei P30 Pro is an amazing flagship phone that takes the camera’s camera level to a new level, plus excellent performance, long battery life and beautiful The gradient back cover will definitely be the best mobile phone you have ever used.”
Huawei P30 Pro: Features and Design
Compared with the previous generation Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei P30 Pro is more like an upgrade of Mate 20 Pro. The P series focuses on the ultimate image, while the Mate series targets the big screen flagship, paying more attention to performance and configuration, just like the positioning of the Samsung Galaxy Note. The Huawei P30 Pro combines many of the flagship features of the P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro models.
The Huawei P30 Pro has increased the screen size to 6.47 inches, which is not only larger than the Mate 20 Pro, but also uses a curved screen design with a fluid curved surface on the back. At the same time, Huawei P30 Pro also has built-in fingerprint recognition function. The aspect ratio of Huawei P30 Pro screen is 19.5:9, while the aspect ratio of Huawei P20 Pro screen is 18.7:9.
At the same time, the bottom of Huawei P30 Pro forms a soothing plane through the diamond cutting process. The double-sided SIM card slot is located on the left side of the Type-C interface, and the right side is the speaker sound hole. Because the Huawei P30 Pro uses a new “magnetic suspension sound screen” technology, the traditional handset is replaced by a screen sound for everyday conversation.
Huawei P30 Pro also supports 40W super fast charging technology, 15W wireless charging technology and wireless reverse charging, almost inherited all the innovative elements of Mate 20 Pro.
In addition, the on-screen fingerprints used by Huawei P30 Pro are based on optical recognition technology instead of ultrasonic recognition technology. They are faster than Huawei Mate 20 Pro, ensuring that fingers are clean and can improve recognition success rate.
Huawei P30 Pro screen quality:
The Huawei P30 Pro uses an OLED screen with a resolution of 2340×1080 and a PPI pixel density of 398. Of course, the screen is still very clear by the naked eye, and the pixel particles are not visible under normal distance. Compared to Samsung’s AMOLED screen, the color of the Huawei P30 Pro looks softer, even in vivid mode.
Huawei P30 Pro does not have a breathing light. Instead, it displays the function of off-screen display. You can see the time, date, remaining power and status notification icon in the status screen. Huawei P30 Pro does not use the “punch screen”. The front camera of the pearl screen is centered and designed with symmetrical beauty. The Notch opening is much smaller than the P20 Pro and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
The most important upgrade of Huawei P30 Pro is the camera. The following are the core parameters of the camera:
Super sensitive lens: 40 million pixels, f / 1.6 aperture, OIS optical image stabilization technology, 27mm equivalent focal length
Ultra wide-angle lens: 20 million pixels, f / 2.2 aperture, 16mm equivalent focal length
Super zoom lens: 8 megapixels, f/3.4 aperture, OIS optical image stabilization, 125mm equivalent focal length
ToF 3D camera: for measuring depth of field
This is the camera information of Huawei P30 Pro. In short, Huawei P30 Pro allows you to go all over the world and achieve full focal length coverage from super wide angle to super zoom.
The above two pictures, the left side is the Huawei P30 Pro super wide-angle shooting effect, the right side is the close-up effect of 10 times the hybrid zoom. How does the telephoto lens of Huawei P30 Pro achieve 10x hybrid zoom on the basis of only 5x optical zoom? The principle is very simple. It combines the 40-megapixel main camera for image fusion, which realizes almost lossless. 10x hybrid zoom.

The super zoom function of the Huawei P30 Pro is very easy to use. There is a button on the side of the screen that shows the current zoom level. The default is 1x (1x optical zoom). If you continue to click the button, it will switch to 5 times, and then click to switch to 10 times. Of course, you can also use your fingers to zoom in and out during this process.
The photo below shows the dark light performance of the Huawei P20 Pro (left) and P30 Pro (right) in standard photo mode, which has not yet used Super Night Scene mode. Huawei officially stated that the P30 Pro uses a new 40-megapixel ultra-sensing sensor that uses red, yellow and blue pixels instead of the traditional red, green and blue.
Since the yellow pixel is more sensitive than the green pixel, the sensor can capture an additional 40% of the light, combined with the OIS optical stabilization system and the f/1.6 large aperture, which produces such a large boost.
This makes the Huawei P30 Pro still able to take clear pictures in an almost completely dark environment, and the brightness of the picture is like taking pictures during the day.
Obviously, the Huawei P30 Pro uses the ultra-sensing sensor to achieve a darker shot. At the same time, in the 4K recording process, the user can still use the 5x optical zoom, which can obtain a very smooth and stable video picture, and can also use the 10x hybrid zoom video, and the video recording effect is very good.
It is reported that Huawei P30 Pro will also introduce a new double-view video in the update launched at the end of April, which is recorded by two cameras at the same time, which are main camera and super wide-angle lens, half of which displays panoramic image and the other half. The zoom screen is displayed.
In addition, the Huawei P30 Pro will also bring a new AI HDR+ function, which uses the AI features of the Kirin 980 to not only optimize the dark and bright areas of the image, but also the type of objects that are not being photographed. Whether it is a character, a sunset or a green plant, it will be accurately identified.
What is the purpose of the Huawei P30 Pro’s fourth camera? It is not used for taking pictures, but the distance of objects in the scene is measured by infrared light. These depth information will be used for the background blur of the portrait mode, making the photo more natural.
32 million pixel front camera effect
As can be seen from the above groups of photos, the 32-megapixel front camera is still very clear. It’s just a little bit lost in the skin and texture details, and it’s the effect of disabling the beauty mode.
Huawei P30 Pro performance test:
Huawei P30 Pro has 8GB of large memory and uses the same Kirin 980 processor as the Mate 20 Pro. In Benchmarks benchmark performance tests, Huawei P30 Pro, Huawei P30 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro have roughly the same running scores. However, the Huawei P30 Pro has an extra 2GB of memory, which is not noticeable in the daily use of the Android system, but it will feel a slight difference when the app starts up quickly.
In terms of battery life, the Huawei P30 Pro uses a 4200mAh large-capacity battery, which allows users to easily achieve “one-day charge” in heavy use. In the Geekbench 4 battery life test, the Huawei P30 Pro and Huawei Mate 20 Pro have the same performance, and can maintain a limit of 11.5 hours of battery life, more durable than most competing products.
If the user has never experienced Huawei’s super fast charge, then the speed of the Huawei P30 Pro is surprising. This phone uses the original charger and Type-C charging cable to quickly charge more than 70% in just 30 minutes.
EMUI 9.1 system experience:
Huawei P30 Pro also brings a new version of EMUI 9.1, which further simplifies the level of settings, including setting options in camera mode. In the system interface, it maintains a similar style to Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and Huawei P20 Pro has also been upgraded to the Android Pie 9 kernel version.
At the same time, Huawei P30 Pro’s EMUI 9.1 added a feature called Digital Balance, similar to the “screen usage time” feature in iOS. Users can use it to query and monitor the time spent on the mobile app and limit the use of specific apps.
The rest of the features are more conventional, including the novel “knuckle” gesture feature, which allows users to quickly take screenshots and APP split screen functions.
