Huawei P40 Pro Review

Score: 88.2 / 100

Huawei P40 Pro is a top-level cellphone released back in 2020, including a very fast Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2860 MHz, a big size 6.6 inches screen, and two cameras, a 50 megapixels back camera and a 32 MP front facing camera.

Huawei decided to build this cellphone with a HiSilicon Kirin 990 chip, backed up by a great 2860 megahertz Octa-Core processor with a huge 8 GB RAM memory. A great advantage of the Huawei P40 Pro is its big 128 GB internal storage and even though it doesn't come with an external memory card slot, it it is more than enough to store tons of apps, games, photos and videos without thinking about running out of space.

Huawei appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 7.37 ounces phone. This cellphone is for sale in multiple color options: black, blush gold, deep sea blue, ice white and silver frost. This phone uses Glass and Metal . This device is just 0.35" thick, taking it to the thinnest phone's category. Even though this device is only 6.23 inches long, it's able to fit a a 6.6" display.

This cellphone is equipped with a high-tech 1200 x 2640 6.6 inches screen, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels composing the screen.

The Huawei P40 Pro is equipped with two cameras, a 50 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 32 MP front side camera. Its back facing camera has a f/1.9 aperture so it can shoot great photographs even in low lighting conditions. This device can also shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in (HD) (1280x720) at 7680 frames per second (256 times slower ). This phone also includes time lapse video.

This device includes WiFi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 5G amazingly fast internet connection, LTE-A 4G high speed internet connection and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a slower 4G technology) and 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

This phone also includes a lot of great features such as Biometric fingerprint, Face ID, Wireless charging compatibility, NFC, Infrared Port, Bluetooth and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Huawei P40 Pro packs a 4200 mAh huge non-removable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an incredible battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to last shorter, although with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new phone before that becomes an issue.

If you want a social phone, want this device to take many photographs, need it for work or want it for gaming, you will definitely love this cellphone. This cellphone is packed with Charger, Quick Start Guide, Warranty Card , USB Type-C Cable, USB Type-C Earphones and Eject Tool.
