Huawei P30 Pro: yay or nay?

Huawei P30 Pro: yay or nay?
The Huawei P30 Pro has just been announced in 5 cool colors and with an even cooler camera module — a 5x telephoto lens that can achieve up to 50x digital zoom, a RYYB sensor for upgraded low-light photography, and even a ToF sensor on the side! We are definitely going to have some fun testing these in the following days.

As for the rest — the P30 Pro is still cutting-edge, with an in-screen fingerprint scanner, a curved display, a home-made Kirin 980 2.6 GHz processor, 6 GB - 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB - 512 GB of storage... the works. And it comes in five colors to boot — from classic black, to super-shiny Amber Sunrise red!

So yes, we are kind of excited for the Huawei P30 Pro. How about you?

I'll pass on Every phone with a notch or hole in the screen. The dumbest idea ever, Apple, Samsung, Motorola and LG. I'll just wait until the next big thing, No Notch!

I've read the review of P30 PRO on gsmarena and franckly speaking the camera is one of the best. The 5x optical zoom gives super crisp photos and low light ones are just amazing. The only things that keeps me back is the EMUI and the price.

I’m not a fan of Chinese phones. I don’t trust their quality or support.

Had the P9, will never buy another Huawei after that experience. They promised updates to Android 8, the Australian version I had never got past Android 6.. Flashing other region firmware was pretty much no go - all locked to countries (not even region locked - Aus phone could only flash Aus fw) so its a No from me.. OnePlus do the job so much better, albeit they need a distribution centre in Australia so that we dont have to rely on oppomart for purchasing OP handsets at unbloated prices... Even though Huawei camera software is top notch and produces some awesome photos, I'd rather go back to Samsung than Huawei..

No matter how good the phones specs will be, until they do something about the software it's a no from me. If you're a big photographer this phone is for you. Just not daily driver material for me.

It's so great that their CEO is using an iphone 7.

For China, more than $ 400-500 is not worth giving away, if you buy a lot of money Samsung s10 +. Chinese smartphones are hemorrhoids.

You've never tried a OnePlus. I go through an amazing amount of handsets every year, and the OP6T is the one handset that I've not found an equal to yet. You're missing out.. BTW iPhones are made in China too lol

P30 pro is a yay for me.

Whether you like it or not, this phone has interesting features that are not offered by other phones, it seems that currently Chinese manufacturers are far more innovative than Korean, Japanese and American companies.

With it being a Huawei device, an obvious nay for me.

You prefer your info sent to the Chinese government?

24. Byakugan unregistered

Yes because at least for now the Chinese government is a lesser evil than the US.

"for now" yep the grand plan is global China domination and their plan is well on the way already ..

33. Byakugan unregistered

If their global domination can make U.S. stop acting like a bully i don't have a problem with that, because it would be far better to have two evil who competing with each other than just let one bully do whatever they want.
