Huawei Mate 40 Pro Review

Score: 90.9 / 100

Huawei Mate 40 Pro is a great quality cellphone released a few years ago, with a very powerful 3130 MHz Octa-Core processing unit, a big size 6.8-inches display, a 50 megapixels back facing camera and a 13 MP front side camera. But let's get into a bit more detail.

This phone is offerred in 2 different color options, black and mystic silver. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is incredibly thin, being just 0.36 inches thick. While this cellphone is just 6.41" long, it is able to fit a a 6.8" screen. Talking about its construction, this phone is majorly built with Glass and Aluminum . The Huawei Mate 40 Pro doesn't feel very lightweight comparing to other devices , with a weight of 7.48 oz.

Huawei equipped the Huawei Mate 40 Pro with an absolutely amazing 6.8-inches display, and a 1334 x 2772 resolution, which makes all images and videos look beautiful and brightful.

Huawei equipped the Huawei Mate 40 Pro with an exceptional Octa-Core processing unit running at 3130 MHz, bundled in the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 chip with a big 8 GB of RAM. A key aspect of this phone is the 256 GB inmense internal storage memory and though it doesn't come with a slot for an SD memory card, it it is more than enough to store lots of apps, games, pictures and videos without thinking about running out of space.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 50 mega-pixels back side camera and a 13 megapixels front side camera. Its back side camera has an aperture of F1.9 so it can shoot detailed pictures even in poorly lit environments. It can also film videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 frames per second, and slow motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) up to 960 fps (32 times slower ). Additionally, the camera features time lapse video.

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro counts with an incredible 4400 mAh non-removable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to consider is that the Huawei Mate 40 Pro's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to lose its charge, while with such a great capacity you will probably replace this cellphone before that happens.

This cellphone has WiFi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 5G ultra fast internet connection, 4G LTE-A ultra fast data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (which is a lower speed 4G type) and fast 3G data connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This phone also comes with a great numbre of great features such as Fingerprint ID, Facial recognition biometrics, Wireless charging system, Near Field Communication (NFC), Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth, GPS (Global Positioning System) and FM Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

It doesn't matter whether you want a work cellphone, want this phone to play games, you love taking pictures or will use it as a social phone, this phone is definitely the right choice for you. This cellphone is packed with USB Type-C Earphones, USB Type-C Cable, Eject Tool, Quick Start Guide, Charger, Flexible Clear Case (depending on markets) and Warranty Card (depending on markets) .
