P30 got a higher pixel density that looks great as it's squeezed into a smaller scale. Even though it is small and a natural fit in the hand, it found harder to type with the default keyboard setup. The dewdrop notch on the top of the screen embodies a new idea for the series. The P30 includes a conventional earpiece speaker placed at the top of the screen that breaks the lip of the design. The on-screen fingerprint scanner is easy to register, quick and accurate to login. The removal of the physical space allows P30 to be more screen dominant.
This model comes with a 6.1 OLED display with a resolution of 2340x1080. The display cant match with the 4K displays but still it's above the regular HD. When compared to other displays, the colours are slightly muted and even miss a bit of vibrancy. This model holds IP53, which is limited dust protection, and water splashes, but this doesn't mean you can put it under water.
Huawei P30 Cameras:
• Leica Triple Camera with super sensing main sensor
• Three cameras with OIS - Optical Image Stabilisation
• 8MP, 3 x optical zoom, f/2.4
• Main: 40MP, 27mm, f/1.8
• Wide: 10MP, 16mm, f/2.2
• Selfie Camera: 32 MP
P30 camera comes with one wide-angle lens, one ultra-high resolution sensor with a conventional 27mm equivalent lens, and a 3x optical zoom optic. The Super Sensing sensor is entirely different from conventional sensors. Huawei comes with a red, yellow, blue, yellow (RYBY) array as the yellow light frequency is more sensitive and can capture a lot of information for a more detailed result. The image captured with P30 is a bit overexcited with over-sharpening details and over-saturating colours. If you focus on taking photos in auto mode for sharing on social media,then p30 is more than good enough. The camera captures more light and improves low-light photography. Overall Huawei P30’s camera is excellent.
Huawei P30 Battery:
• 3,650mAh battery
• Huawei’s SuperCharge fast-charging
The Huawei P30 comes with 3,650mAh battery pack, which is enough through out a day of moderate to heavy usage. We could play games, listen to music, watch videos, and more where the battery wouldn't drop too low. Based on the Techradar battery test, upon playing a 90 min video in its full brightness and at the same time the accounts synced over Wi-Fi, the charge just dropped 7% which is the best result that has ever seen. This model also supports fast-charging.
Huawei P30 Performance:
• Processor: Kirin 980, 6GB RAM
• Battery-3650mAh, fast-charging (22.5W)
• No wireless charging
• EMUI 9.1 software skin on Android Pie
Huawei P30 is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 980 CPU and a 6GB RAM that offers great performance and can surely handle high-fidelity games. This model holds a cooling system which is surprisingly effective. The Apps opens in milliseconds, and menus scroll smoothly. The Emotion User Interface (EMUI) has long pushed adopting a slightly updated version, EMUI 9.1, built over Google's Android Pie 9 OS. It is in a place where customers find this offering and accept its customizations.The charging is fairly quick but it won't support wireless charging. The battery is commendable given its capacity. This model charges fast enough and for most of the customers, wireless charging isn't essential.
Overall, Huawei P30 is a well designed pocketable model with a great camera solution. This might be a better purchase option and a perfect match for the customers on account of its lower price point.
