Just when you think smartphone cameras can’t get any better, Huawei’s P30 Series rewrites the rules. With the new P30 Pro smartphone, you get a professional grade camera and a lot more for a competitive price.
Featuring Huawei’s signature quad camera system, the P30 Pro offers a staggering four camera setup including a 40MP primary camera, a 20MP ultra wide angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, and a Huawei ToF (Time of Flight) camera, that allows any user to get the best shots possible.
Price-wise, the Huawei P30 Pro is on the more expensive side of things. Depending on specs, and carrier, the P30 Pro will run anywhere between $1,190 (128GB) and $1,315 (256GB) in Canada. And while it’s cheaper than the iPhone XS Max, the price point might be a turn-off for some users.
Like many current gen smartphones, the P30 Pro doesn’t have a ton of grip on it, which may result in you dropping it more sans case. You’ve been warned.
In addition, as is now standard, which is either a great thing or a terrible thing depending on your stance, the P30 Pro doesn’t come with a headphone jack. Alternatively, there’s a pair of USB-C headphones included in the box, or you can charge up a pair of Bluetooth headphones and enjoy hours of music. Interestingly enough, the P30 model does have a headphone jack if it’s a dealbreaker for you.
Besides the awesome cameras, and classy design, the P30 Pro’s battery is nothing to sneeze at either. The phone features 40W Huawei SuperCharge, which allows you get a solid 70 percent charge in just 30 minutes, which is essential if you’re on the go.
How long a single charge lasts depends on your usage, but with the P30 Pro, you can usually get around 6-8 hours of screen-on time, and around two days of overall usage.
With its DSLR-like camera system, long battery life, and sleek, classy design, the Huawei P30 Pro is the phone of the future. Despite its shortcomings in the form of the lack of a headphone jack, the P30 Pro is a step above its competitors in most, if not all, categories. If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, you’re missing out if you don’t give it a shot.
