AUD$1599 for the pro with only 8/256gb configuration and last years CPU.. Seriously Huawei you fooked up right there. Thats not a flagship device with old hardware lol - Makes the Mate 20 Pro at a cheaper price point a much better option now

"last years CPU." The kirin 980 is from Q4 2018. The SD 855 was announced in Q4 2018 so therefore is last years cpu by your reasoning. The kirin 980 is faster than 99% of phones available to buy on the market.

Funny how nobody ever says "last years CPU" about iphones which roughly match the (flagship smartphone SoC) hardware release cycle of Huawei. "last year" argument is meaningless, since the actual difference can be a day. What would make sense to compare is technology used in latest Kirin/Exynos/Snapdragon -- e.g. 7nm/8nm/7nm. On the other hand, why should one care about the "CPU" at all if the phone runs as fast or faster than other flagships, has no lags, no issues with hardware and software, best camera and battery life? You had issues with updates on P9, but that is other phone from a long past. But even then, my colleague had a P9 and was so happy with it that he later upgraded to P10, and was happy with it as well. I've owned honor 8 (honor version of P9) and it was one of the best devices I ever had -- no complaints.

The are some 25% iFans or Samsung fans who do not appreciate & cannot accept the truth that P30 pro is among the top 3 smartphones in the world. If a smartphone is that good, what not to like. & If you pass, what else you want to get?
