Honor V30 Pro front camera review
Source: DxOMark English
The Honor V30 Pro boasts high-end specs and performed impressively well in our main camera test. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for its selfie cam performance. While the V30 Pro is capable of recording decent selfie video, with good detail and stabilization, it’s far from the best in this category, and its still images leave even more room for improvement. Color issues, a narrow depth of field, and an overzealous beautification effect all make for a sub-par selfie user experience. The Honor V30 Pro rear cam is still an excellent option for many users, but if selfie pictures and videos are a priority, better options are currently available.

Honor V30 Pro audio review
Source: DxOMark English
By choosing to equip its latest flagship with a single speaker, Honor greatly affected the V30 Pro’s playback performance. A lack of low-end extension and excessive compression at high volumes also impair its timbre, dynamics, volume, and artifacts performances. However, the Honor V30 Pro’s microphones deliver outstanding tonal balance, excellent spatial capture, and faithful dynamics. In the recording area, these category-leading sub-scores, along with good overall loudness, few artifacts, and a very natural background rendering make Honor’s low-cost flagship simply the best.

76% Honor V30 Pro review

Once again, if you are living outside of China, the Honor V30 Pro is a no-go as of the time of writing this. But even if it had the necessary Google certification, the handset feels like it’s out of touch with the recent smartphone trends. Instead of offering a competitive OLED panel, even if it’s not 90Hz, Honor's 16:9 Cine Lens camera is something no one asked for. Not to mention the main camera shoots better videos than this video-oriented ultra-wide camera.

Honor V30 Pro camera review
Source: DxOMark English
Jumping almost to the very top of our rankings, the Honor V30 Pro is going to catch the eye of smartphone photography enthusiasts, as it delivers comparable or better image quality than some of the more expensive flagship competition, with excellent zoom, bokeh, night, and flash shots. Some very minor autofocus instabilities prevented it from securing the top spot in our ranking, however; and if ultra-wide-angle shots are a key consideration, make sure the 16:9 ratio output suits your needs.

Honor V30/V30 Pro hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
As far as the international availability goes, the plans at the moment are unclear, considering Huawei/Honor's ongoing legal issues with the US and trouble licensing Google services. Still, if the V30 and V30 Pro do eventually manage to cross over to the Old Continent, we expect it will be under the View 30 and View 30 Pro branding. And that's about as much as we can speculate on the matter.

Honor V40 Review: Flagship Features With Reasonable Price
Source: Igeekphone English
The super macro lens of the HonorV40 is also very good. By controlling the distance between the lens and the object to be shot at about 4 cm, you can capture the details of the surface of the object. For example, the real size of leaves in the macrostate is only the size of a fingernail, but after the macro shooting, you can see that the lines on the surface of the leaves are very clear, and many details are well represented. Honor V40 multi-picture appreciation, the photo effects in outdoor and indoor environments, both show very professional photo effects.

Comment

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).


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.

ARM Mali-G77 MP11: Integrated graphics card based on the Valhall architecture. Uses 11 of the 16 possible clusters and according to ARM offers 30% better performance at 30% better efficiency compared to a Mali-G76.

ARM Mali-G77 MP9: Integrated graphics card based on the Valhall architecture. Uses 9 of the 16 possible clusters and according to ARM offers 30% better performance at 30% better efficiency compared to a Mali-G76.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

0.48 kg:

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


78.88%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
