due to the trade war between China and the USA. Nevertheless, the novelty deserves special attention, and on our resource you can even read a detailed review of this phone. In this article, we will tell you about reviews about the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. What users like and not so much: pros and cons.

Honest review

So, as it turned out from the first impressions of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the flagship is superior in some ways, and in some ways disappointing if we talk about it from a practical point of view.


  • A really cool unique curved display,there is a feeling that the phone has no frames at all. Many users were worried that there would be a random ridiculous touch on the side of the screen, but Huawei somehow thought this out technically, so there is no problem. But besides the fact that the phone looks very cool, you won’t find much use for the curved screen.
  • The phone has a large 4500 mAh battery,and this is also a big plus. The battery size alone is impressive; it is bigger than any other regular phone. According to the experience of some bloggers and users, the Mate 30 Pro can work quietly for two days with average use. And this despite the fact that you have to charge most phones every day. Of course, if you use 5G, you will get a slightly lower rate.
  • 40 watt fast also includeda charger that allows you to get a charge of more than 50% in less than half an hour. It is also the first phone to support 27-watt wireless charging, so fast.
  • You have three cameras on board: primary, telephoto and super wide angle. I liked the stabilization of the video here, it's just awesome. The phone simply magically makes your frames extremely stable and cinematic: the quality is much better than on any other phone. In addition, if you take many pictures of people, portrait mode works fine, you can shoot portraits in 1X, 2X, and 3X, and portrait mode with 3x zoom creates the best portrait shots. A larger camera sensor gives great improvements for photos in low light.
  • If you like to record video from the frontcameras, you will be extremely impressed with the new AI HDR feature, which gives you frames that look better than most competitors. In addition, you also have the super sloooow mooo option, which slows down reality to almost a halt.
  • One of the best face recognition systems. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro will scan your face just like an iPhone, and this 3D scan gives you a safe and easy way to unlock your phone. But if you don’t want it, you also have an optical fingerprint scanner that also works great and quickly unlocks your phone. No other phone on the market offers such a secure 3D face scan and a fast and reliable on-screen fingerprint scanner.
  • It is equipped with a 5G modem on a system chip, which is more efficient, while most other competitors do not even offer the 5G option at all.
  • Huawei's new EMUI interface has improved significantly. It looks cleaner and more modern, more stylish, plus gestures now work smoother.


There are also a few things that many did not like about this phone ...

  • The lack of Google services, which is seriousa problem. You won’t even realize how much you depend on the Google Play store, YouTube, Google Maps and everything else until you get a phone like this. Yes, there are ways in which you can download the Google GMS license and all Google applications, but we are not even sure that this is legal, so we won’t go into details. But if you don’t feel like a hacker who wants to do this, we simply cannot recommend this phone at all.
  • The price is just absurd for a phone without servicesGoogle The Mate 30 Pro costs around $ 1,100, more than Samsung’s latest iPhone and Galaxy. This is still too high a price tag for a phone with disabilities.
  • There are no physical volume buttons,instead, you have digital controls, but from practical experience, they don't work every time. You must double-click on the side of the phone to pop up. The problem is that this does not always work just right, and sometimes you can get into an awkward position, for example, if you accidentally turn on something loud in a public place and rather want to lower the volume.
  • The quality of the camera here is controversial. Sometimes you get great photos, and sometimes the colors in the photos look just weird.
  • No 3.5mm headphone jack.
  • And last but not least, this phone is quite large and has sharp edges, so you can not carry it in your pocket.

Is it worth buying?

Huawei Mate 30 Pro turned out to be a real mobilethe beast, but there are several problems that the manufacturer needs to solve - the lack of Google services. If the clouds around Huawei disperse and the Mate 30 Pro gets Google apps, it will be among the main contenders, despite its shortcomings.
