Introducing the Huawei Mate 30 Pro – a phone that has caused some controversy and political issues. But if you’re not an average user, and you’re looking for a unique and stunning device, then this might be the phone for you. Keep in mind, I reviewed the Chinese unit, which may not be the final version for Europe, and it doesn’t come with Google applications pre-installed. But if you follow our guide, you can install them.
Design-wise, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is absolutely beautiful. Its smooth curved edges, glass and metal build, and thin bezels all add up to create a package that only the highest-end smartphones can compete with. While it does remind me of the Galaxy Note 10, it has unique qualities that make it stand out. The only impractical part is the waterfall edges, which can be slippery and have a finicky volume rocker implementation.
The screen is not the best display on any phone, but it still looks great and has some key advantages over competitors. Its lower resolution provides better battery life and enables the GPU to push more frames for a smoother gaming experience.
Performance-wise, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro doesn’t have crazy amounts of RAM or storage, but it’s quick and responsive. The battery life is impressive, lasting me a full day or more every time I used it.
Probably the biggest reason why tech enthusiasts still want this phone despite its controversy is its camera system. While the Mate 30 Pro doesn’t have as many optical zoom options as the P30 Pro, its resulting images still retain great dynamic range and add a splash of color to dull images using its AI tool.
The Mate 30 Pro’s software UI is an acquired taste, but it has a vast array of options and features that some users might appreciate. However, many people might be turned off by the Google issue, and the phone might not even come to Europe.
