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.

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.

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.

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


HiSilicon :

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.
