Huawei P30 Review

Score: 81.7 / 100

Huawei P30 is an impressive cellphone released many years ago, provisioned with a large 6.1 inches screen, a high-tech Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2600 megahertz, and two cameras, a 40 megapixels back facing camera and a 32 MP front side camera. Let's take a deeper look at what this phone has to offer.

Huawei decided to sell this device with an extremely powerful Octa-Core processor clocking at 2600 megahertz, bundled in a HiSilicon Kirin 980 system chip and a big 6 GB RAM memory. This device comes with a great 128 GB internal memory and whereas it doesn't count with an external memory slot, it it is more than enough to store lots of apps, games, pictures and videos without thinking about filling it.

Apparently Huawei decided not to care so much about the weight in this 5.82 ounces cellphone. This cellphone is incredibly thin and practical, with a thickness of just 0.3 inches. This phone is quite a compact cellphone, considering it packs a 6.1" display and it is only 5.87" long. Huawei is offering the Huawei P30 in black, breathing and crystal aurora. This device construction combines Glass and Metal .

This cellphone has two cameras, a 40 megapixels back camera and a 32 megapixels front-facing camera. this device's back camera lens has a maximum 1.8 aperture so it can capture awesome photos even in low light environments. This phone also shoots 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 fps, and slow motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) up to 960 fps (32 times slower ). In addition, this cellphone's camera also features time lapse video.

This phone is equipped with a incredible 1080 x 2340 6.1" screen, giving this cellphone a delightful image quality.

This phone has a huge 3650 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery providing this device an extremely long battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to lose capacity, while with so much capacity you will probably buy a new phone before it becomes an issue.

This cellphone provides Wi-Fi connection (and it can provide it to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G , a really fast internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a bit slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Huawei P30 uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

This phone also includes a great numbre of interesting characteristics such as Fingerprint Sensor, Face ID, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone is probably a little bit expensive considering it is offerred for $ 504, and some similar cellphones can be found for less money. No matter if you want a work cellphone, will use this cellphone majorly for social networks and internet browsing, you love taking photographs or will use this device to play lots of games, this phone is the correct option for you.
