The P30 pro is the successor to last year’s Mate 20 pro. Huawei has created the first true competitor to the S10 with all its new features and specifications.
Like the P20 pro the cameras in the P30 pro are the main focus of the phone. It also has one of the best and unique camera setup like its predecessors. It now has quad cameras and each camera has its own unique feature and function.
The design is also a step-up compared to last year. Instead of the fingerprint sensor on the chin and the notched display Huawei has now put an in-display fingerprint sensor and a water-drop notch. The display also has curved edges and a gradient finish back.
The camera setup has a normal 40 MP sensor, an ultra-wide sensor, a depth sensor a periscope lens that is basically a telephoto lens. Some of the new camera features include 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom. A lot of old camera features are also present.
The Kirin 980 is the chip that is used for powering this device and has proven to be on par with the Snapdragon flagships.
A lot of minor improvements have been added to the P30 pro while comparing it to the P20 making it similar to the S10. The battery is 4200 mAh and gives great battery life.
Some of the problems like the UI being heavily skinned, the single speaker and the absence headphone jack are still present the P30 has proven itself to be a fair competitor to the S10 in many ways. Just like many flagships the P30 pro has also got only minor improvement but fulfills almost every requirement a user could ever have.
