Huawei P30 Pro now comes in two new colors and they look very classy (hands-on)
The Huawei P30 Pro is getting two brand new colors that look very stylish and refined: it calls them Misty Lavender and Mystic Blue, but marketing talk aside these are a gorgeous pink version and a very nice, light blue color.

The new models feature a two-tone finish with a reflective, glass-like surface on the top third of the phone, while the bottom two thirds of the phone come treated with a frosted, matte finish. We have seen phones with a similar two-tone finish in the past (hello, OG Google Pixel), but this one is a bit different, it feels original and gives the devices a distinct character and makes them easy to tell apart from the traditional P30 Pro colors.



The matte finish on the bottom part feels particularly nice to the touch, with a smooth feel, and it has the added benefit of dealing better with fingerprint smudges that are far less noticeable here. The two colors are not as flashy as other finishes and instead have this almost pastel tonality to them. They are definitely very elegant and look classy.

Another nice little detail is that the metal sides of the phones are also matching the main color.

The new colors will also arrive with the newest EMUI version 10 on top of the Android 10, which is a nice extra. The currently available P30 Pro models run on EMUI 9.1 and will get EMUI 10 as an update. Apart from that, there are no further changes to these versions: they feature the same Kirin 980 chip, the same camera setup with the periscope zoom camera, and the same awesome long-lasting battery.

That "two-tone" finish on the rear reminds me of the original Pixel.

Something just doesn't look right in this design. Maybe the two tones are too similar in colour and material?

Nice colors. Hands down, currently the best smartphone on the market, IMO.

They are cute, but they ain't no Pixels. Also, uh, they are slimy and bad and steal secrets and stuff. Make America great again!

I'm just trying to fit in. I forgot to add something about how great Apple profits are, I guess.

They look hideous. Those things look like cheap knockoffs which is ironic given that it's from Huawei.

You say they look hideous but think the Pixels look decent? How sway...

Nowhere in my comment did I say or imply that they did so stop making sht up. Yes, I said the Pixel 3A XL looks good. Your point?

I never said you did, and you’ve made comments in the past about the Pixel 3A XL looking good, and that’s what I am obviously referring to, so stop denying That’s my point. It’s completely hypocritical to say that these look hideous when you say one of the worst designed phones in the industry, Pixels, look good. That’s my other point.

Definitely your opinion.

And? Am I not entitled to one? Does my opinion offend you that much?

Not offended at all. Let me break down my comment as it seems you need help understating it. Definitely¹ - Clearly, without a doubt Your² - Belonging to Opinion³ - Point of view, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge So in conclusion, the Huawei P30 Pro can't possibly be "currently the best smartphone on the market" because clearly¹ the point of view³ that belongs to you² is not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

Nah, you’re offended, or you would not have bothered to respond to my “opinion”. Now let me break down “my opinion of” the P30 Pro for you, as you seem to have trouble understanding what it means: 1. “My” meaning mines 2. “Opinion of” meaning: “an estimation of the quality or worth of someone or something.” Example: “Hands down, currently the best smartphone on the market, IMO.” IMO means “In My Opinion”, and since I’m referring to something, it’s “My Opinion Of”. So in conclusion, you have taken exception to “my opinion of” something, for absolutely no reason whatsoever, which can be categorized as an emotional response because you take “exception” to my “opinion of” the Huawei P30 Pro. Ergo, you’re offended. Class dismissed.

Actually, all I did was reciprocate what you just explained, causing YOU to be the one offended MY opinion. But, like all people who lack integrity, you keep denying that.

Last word much?

He can’t help it, his emotions are triggering him to respond, and I’m just enjoying pointing it out, lol.

It does seem impossible to actually have a discussion here.

It does indeed.

Dude, are you seriously asking that question to him and not to the guy you're jock riding? He continues to go on and on until he gets the last word in. Don't be blind.

Are you jealous, Twinkletoes?

Funny how you talk about yourself and try to push that off on others.

Thank you. And their comments after yours further proves your point.

Nah, you got emotional over “my opinion of” an inanimate object, thus taking offense to and triggering your response. Now you’re trying to switch it up because I exposed you. How you a pimp when you act so emotional? Not a good look in your like of business, lol. But, like all people who lack integrity, you’re just changing the facts to suit your false narrative.

But isn't that what you do? That's why you constantly go on and on about the Pixel phones because I said something about Nokia that you didn't like.

47. meanestgenius

Posts: 22084; Member since: May 28, 2014

You mean like you go on and on about Huawei and Nokia smartphones because I say things about Pixels you don’t like? Or are you referring to how you go on and on about BlackBerry smartphones because I favor them? Or when you go on and on about LG smartphones because you’ve noticed I own one? Glass houses and stones, and all that.

I'm pretty sure several people could ask you that same question. *cough* hypocrite *cough* Excuse me, had to clear my throat there.

Pretty sure you’re still mentioning a pot, meet kettle moment once again. Or are you going to play the victim again and deny that you were referring to me? By the way, I like you keep running for those Pixels articles. The epic dragging must be too much for you, lol.
