Design and screen:
It's not a lie to say that the design of the P30 turns heads. It has been elegantly designed to fit and still be useable with one hand. It has a delicate, curved glass screen and back, which adds a nice weight in your hand and comes in three vibrant colours – Breathing Crystal, Aurora Blue, and Black.
The P30 has a 6.1" Full HD+ OLED screen that looks stunning and gives you a better, more vibrant viewing experience whether you are catching up on your boxsets or playing the latest game. It's become a staple of flagship phones now, but Huawei has also kept the tiny teardrop notch for the front-facing camera, which is still a lot less intrusive than other phones in this space.
Performance and processor:
Under the hood, you'll find an impressive piece of kit. Powered by the Kirin 980 AI chipset, which allows you to use even the most draining of applications without being slowed down. The Kirin 980 is a top-of-the-line chipset with high performance and lower power consumption than comparable chipsets. The phone also has 6GB of RAM to help it perform at top spec. The P30 has the power to take on absolutely everything you can throw at it and come back for more.
Considering that the ‘P' in Huawei P30 stands for ‘Photography', you can be assured that this phone can really bring your photography to the next level. Developed in partnership with Leica, the P30 comes with a triple camera system that equips you with the technology to take professional photos.
The camera system has a 40MP Super Sensing Camera, an 16MP Ultra-Wide Angle Lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens which gives you the freedom to capture the best photos regardless of the situation. The 32 MP front facing camera intelligently recognises your face and adds contouring, brightness and sharpening for stunning selfies, every single time.
The phone also focuses on the ability to take low light shots with its low light settings. The P30 revolutionises night photography with its light fusion sensor technology, to get high-quality detail and colour even in the darkest of settings.
Battery & Charging:
The battery on the P30 boasts SuperCharging technology so you can charge your phone quickly. No more hanging around, waiting on your phone to get some juice – with Super Charge, you can get a full charge over breakfast or during your coffee break.
It also includes wireless charging for convenience, as well as reverse wireless charging so that you can charge other phones that have the feature. The huge battery on this phone will last you more than a day, regardless of what you are doing with it. On standby, you will get 480 hours, but with normal day to day use, you will still get the full day out of it.
