Huawei P30 may get better pre-order gifts than Samsung Galaxy S10

Huawei P30 may get better pre-order gifts than Samsung Galaxy S10
Some companies like Samsung give customers nice incentives to pre-order their flagships, others, such as HMD Global, simply offer big discounts to those who pre-order Nokia top-tier phones.

Huawei is part of the first category, so we're expecting the Chinese company to kick off great promotions when the P30 line goes official later this month. Although we don't know the prices of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, we've just found out the Chinese giant plans to offer valuable freebies to everyone who pre-orders either of the two devices.

Polish blog GSMManiak has learned that Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will be available for pre-order in Poland starting March 26. Customers who pre-order the regular version will receive the new Huawei Watch GT, while those who pre-order the Pro model will get the Huawei CP60 wireless charger, in addition to the smartwatch.

Obviously, the promotion might not be available in all countries where Huawei plans to sell its new P30 flagships, but we expect the pre-order gifts to be available in many European countries.

Considering Samsung only gave customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy S10 a pair of Galaxy Buds ($129 value), Huawei's deals seem much more appealing with an overall value of $280 (smartwatch + wireless charger). Of course, the availability of these bonuses vary greatly, as Samsung even offered Smart TVs and smartwatches if you pre-ordered its most expensive Galaxy S10 model in some countries, but Huawei may boost the value of its gifts in these regions to match Samsung's promotional offer.

How is that better? I received the Galaxy Watch with my choice of size and color, plus the new wireless charger duo. The Galaxy Watch is sold at around 320 dollars here, plus another 90 for the charger, while the Huawei Watch GT is sold at 180 dollars.

Because most S10 pre-orders came with wireless earplugs - so I would say, watch compared to that is much better choice!

The beauty of competition. New flagship phone and a gift. Nice. While another phone maker offers 5 years of updates. Mind you, the features you're getting over this time are Android features out of the box. Still no night sight, split screen etc.

the phone maker doesn't make a phone in the first place, also their software the last couple of years is full of bugs and micro-lags as from my experience and not to mention Apple doesn't create software updates equally the older phone gets a water downed version of these updates compared to the newer phones, also android is a couple of years ahead in terms of features anyway

How is the Watch GT better? A watch that uses Huawei propriety OS. Meaning no third party apps? The watch is worthless.

First off, there are not a lot of watch apps out thee anyway. Most of them are specific, that you never use. Secondly the LiteOS with is microkerenel promises hell of a lot of battery time, which is nice for a watch. Thirdly, Huawei is becoming a monster player on the market, meaning it has power to do stuff and bring developers to its platform. At this point WearOS has its edge, but Huawei is out to get that thing and if they get essential apps, the benefits of LiteOS will kick in.

You missed the most important feature of a smartwatch, giving you the option to see ALL your notifications and take action after that. The Huawei GT does none of these. It shows notifications of basic stock applications, and even then, you can't reply or do any sort of actions IF you can see the notification on your watch. As Michael Fisher said, it's a fitness tracker disguised as a smartwatch.
