Huawei Mate 30 Review

Score: 84 / 100

Huawei Mate 30 is a very high-end Android device launched in September 2019, having an extremely fast Octa-Core processor ticking at 2860 megahertz, a really big 6.6-inches screen, and two cameras, a 40 MP back side camera and a 24 MP front side camera.

Huawei equipped the Huawei Mate 30 with a high-tech Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2860 megahertz, bundled in a HiSilicon Kirin 990 chip and a big 8 GB of RAM. A great advantage of this cellphone is the 128 GB big internal storage memory and whereas it doesn't have an SD memory slot, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games currently available without thinking about how much memory is left.

It appears that Huawei decided not to care much about the weight in this 6.91 oz device. While the Huawei Mate 30 is only 6.33 inches long and 3 inches wide, it is able to fit a a 6.6 inches screen. This device is incredibly thin, with a thickness of just 0.33". Huawei made the Huawei Mate 30available only in many different color options, black, cosmic purple, emerald green and space silver. Talking about its body design materials, this cellphone is mainly manufactured with Glass and Aluminum .

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 40 megapixels back camera and a 24 MP front camera. this phone's back camera lens has a maximum f/1.8 aperture so it can take great photographs even in low lighting situations. The Huawei Mate 30 also shoots 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow-motion videos up to 960 fps (32 times slower ).

Huawei designed this cellphone with a incredible 6.6-inches screen, and a 1080 x 2340 resolution, which makes everything look absolutely perfect.

The Huawei Mate 30 has Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices around, acting as a wireless router), LTE-A (4G) really quick connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a bit slower 4G technology) and fast 3G connection type, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This cellphone also comes with lots of cool features as Fingerprint Reader, Facial recognition to unlock, Wireless charging capability, NFC (Near Field Communication), Infrared Port, Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth cellphones, computers and accessories) and GPS, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone has a high capacity 4200 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this phone with a great battery life. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to live shorter, although with this big battery you will probably buy a new phone before that becomes a real problem.

If you are looking for a device to mainly use social networks, need a cellphone to play tons of games, want this device to take tons of pictures or will use it as a work device, you will probably be very satisfied with it. When buying this phone you will also receive Quick start guide, 3.5 mm headset, Eject tool, Warranty card , Charger and Type-C cable.
