Reviews for the Honor 30 Pro+

75% Honor 30 Pro Plus Review
Source: Phone Arena English
The Honor 30 Pro+ is a great phone if we judge it by its performance, camera and specs. However, as Huawei is banned from using technology from US companies, this smartphone comes without access to the Google Play Store and relies on Huawei’s own solution, the App Gallery. The lack of Google services and Play Store is the only downside of this otherwise great phone -- and surely the reason why the Honor P30 Pro+ is practically unavailable in western markets.

80% Honor 30 Pro+ review: An incredible camera, but Android without Google doesn't cut it
Source: Neowin English
The Honor 30 Pro+ was both better than I expected and worse than I hoped. I thought a lot more Android apps would have trouble working, and that I would be upset for not having a Play Store to look for new apps if needed, so having most of them work was actually pretty nice. At the same time, the apps that didn't work made me feel dreadful every time I wanted to use something and remembered it doesn't work.

It's unfortunate that Honor has once again released a phone, which you probably won't be able to get. The lack of Google Services puts it at a great disadvantage and the only way to offset that is to lower the price significantly. If it had Google Services, the Honor 30 Pro+ would have been a competitive smartphone worth your hard-earned money. But Huawei's AppGallery still has a long way to go and the majority of apps still rely on Google's Services and there's no easy way around it.

Honor 30 Pro+ unboxing and first impressions
Source: Neowin English
We go hands-on with Honor's latest flagship, the Honor 30 Pro+, with a Kirin 990 5G chipset, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. The phone has no Google services, so it's based on AOSP.

Honor 30 Pro+ camera review
Source: DxOMark English
The Honor 30 Pro+ shares a sizable chunk of imaging hardware and software with the Huawei P40 Pro, the current number one in our DXMARK Camera ranking, so the Honor’s excellent results across all Photo and Video attributes should not really come as a big surprise to anyone. The results are particularly close for Video, where the Honor performs at a very high level across the board, and differences between it and the P40 Pro are quite minor.

Comment

ARM Mali-G76 MP16: Integrated graphics card based on the second generation of the Bifrost architecture. Uses 16 of the 20 possible clusters and according to ARM offers twice the performance per cluster than the old Mali-G72. It is used in the Kirin 990 5G and according to Huawei should be about 6% faster and 20% more efficient than a Adreno 640 in a Snapdragon 855.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Kirin 990 5G: ARM based octa-core SoC with 2x Cortex-A76 up to 2.86 GHz (performance), 2x A76 with up to 2.36 (balance) and 4x Cortex-A53 with up to 1.95 GHz (power saving). Integrates a neural processor (2+1 cores), a ARM Mali-G76 MP16 GPU at up to 700 MHz and a Balong 5G modem. Compared to the 4G version, the 5G 990 is slightly higher clocked (2 of the 3 clusters and the GPU). The SoC is manufactured in 7nm at TSMC.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.19 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Honor:

In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).


77%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
