Huawei Mate 30 Pro

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is a smartphone that claims to be the breakthrough of visual boundaries, the exploration of photography and videography, the liberation of power and speed, and the innovation of interaction by Huawei. As for design, Huawei has created the image of wild nature with sophisticated design. The colors radiate in every light and shadow reflecting the splendid milky way, graceful violet, treasured emerald and mysterious night. Color options available are Orange, Forest Green, Cosmic Purple, Space Silver, Emerald Green and Black. Expanding from edge to edge, the ultra-curved screen extends the horizon for an ultimate immersive viewing experience. The encircled glass with 88-degree ultra curves gives users a natural touch and hold in the palm of your hand. More than a piece of artwork, it is pursuing the balance of aesthetics and comfort. The ultra-curved screen edges offer a wider area for interactions, which also replace the physical buttons for a seamless design. Users can naturally adjust the volume or enjoy quad-finger game control with this innovative side-touch interaction. The quad-camera of the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G is embraced by the halo ring. It is a perfect fusion of reflection and refraction. The 40 MP Cine Camera and 40 MP SuperSensing Camera allows users to record Ultra-Low-Light, Ultra-Slow Motion and Ultra-Wide-Angle-Time-lapse videos. The 8 MP Telephoto Camera has 3x optical zoom, 5x hybrid zoom and up to 30x digital zoom feature. It will bring the far-away surprises to user’s eyes. Furthermore, the 3D Depth Sensing Camera brings professional Bokeh effects to portrait photos and videos. Inherited by the powerful DNA of Mate, the battery is upgraded to 4,500 mAh (typical value), which can easily support one-day requirement. Benefit from the chipset’s improved power efficiency and intelligent power management system to power up even longer than before. Fast charge is also available via HUAWEI SuperCharge. As the world’s 1st flagship 5G SoC powered by 7nm+ EUV2, the Kirin 990 5G achieved significant performance with lower power consumption. It supports SA and NSA network architectures, peak download speed and wide frequencies of FDD and TDD. The brand new architecture of Big-Core plus Tiny-Core NPU vastly improves AI capability for intelligent life. Paired with 8 GB RAM + 256 GB ROM, the Mate 30 Pro ensure maximum performance, even in multitasking and gaming. Conclusively, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro has great design, camera, performance and battery life. However, the lack of Google Apps in the smartphone might set off some users who uses Google apps on their phone heavily. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is a victim of circumstance, but at the end of the day, it’s still an incomplete smartphone until it gets access to Google Play services. As it stands, therefore, while the phone features class-leading everything, we can’t in good faith recommend anyone outside China buy it unless you’re comfortable with the idea of sideloading apps, or are actively seeking a Google-free experience.

Hobbling of Huawei's Mate 30 Pro is a great shame for consumers
Source: Sydney Morning Herald English
Huawei is the second largest smartphone maker in the world, and while the majority of sales still come from its homeland, the Chinese smartphone maker is best placed to provide much needed competition for Apple and Samsung. Huawei's breakneck pursuit of new features has proven extremely enticing for phone buyers in Europe, for example, where it is closing in on second-placed Apple in terms of market share. Similarly, in Australia, Huawei has shot to a strong third position in a relatively short space of time.

Huawei's Mate 30 Pro is unsurprisingly potent on paper and the new focus on video from the camera experience seems like a smart move, rather than simply building on the P30 Pro's zoom capabilities. In almost every regard the phone has the ability to take on every other flagship smartphone of the moment but with the company's current predicament, it might not even get the chance.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro: The new low light master
Source: Hardware Zone English
Make no mistake, the Mate 30 Pro’s camera system is certainly a revolutionary one. By smartly incorporating two larger-than-usual sensors, Huawei has created a video-focused counterpart to the P30 Pro’s obvious photography focus ones. And the results are equally impressive. Colours are accurate, and the camera adjusts for changing exposures quickly and accurately so you no longer have the issue of colours being drastically different when moving from one camera to another. From what we’ve seen, the larger sensor of the Ultra-wide Cine camera definitely makes a difference in terms of low light capture and sensitivity. If anything, the improved slow-motion capture mode has no equal among other smartphones in the market, so that certainly puts it one rung above the rest. We’d love to see how it compares to the camera modules on other recently released smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but that will have to come in a later article after the Pixel 4 gets launched too.

The success of the Mate 20 Pro set an incredibly high bar for Huawei to clear, and I think the company managed it by the skin of their teeth. This phone doesn’t tick every box: video still has a ways to go, but the awesome detail and insane low-light performance make this my go-to when I want to take an image. If Huawei manages to fix its video issues, they could be in line for the best camera on any smartphone.

But there's no escaping the fact that with no Play Store on board and only partial Google app functionality, the Mate 30 Pro can't be recommended for anyone outside of China. In fact, actively avoiding it would be the only sensible advice. The moment Google gets the license to provide products and services to Huawei will be the moment this phone will become a true all-rounder. And you should run to the nearest store and get one - but only then. Until then, stick to the other options, there are plenty.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro front camera review
Source: DxOMark English
With an overall DXOMARK Selfie score of 93, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro makes it into the top five in our current ranking and delivers images with good exposure and color as well as a nice texture/noise trade-off in most conditions. The fixed-focus lens means that the camera is not ideal for close-range and selfie-stick shots, and video clips could do with slightly better stabilization, but the Mate 30 Pro is capable of recording decent still and video selfies overall. This said, if the front camera is a top priority for you, some better options are available.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro camera review
Source: DxOMark English
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro’s overall DXOMARK Camera score of 121 sets an impressive new benchmark for smartphone camera performance and is the device to beat in the second half of 2019. The new Mate does not show any real weaknesses in the camera department and delivers good still image and video quality in most situations. Its photo quality is very good across the board, but its texture/noise balance is truly outstanding, with excellent detail rendering in almost all conditions while keeping image noise at low levels. The wide-angle camera’s comparatively narrow field of view could be a criticism, but the wide-angle cam delivers good image quality; moreover, the Mate 30 Pro is one of the best for bokeh and zoom as well.

While this is an incredible smartphone for all it does with cameras, battery life and design, the lack of Google apps out of the box is a massive problem.

Huawei pushes smartphone innovation beyond what we need or realise we even wanted, but not even ridiculously good photos and bewildering slow motion video can distract from the biggest issue here. In the face of adversity, Huawei has almost knocked it out the park, the proverbial ball is flying through the sky, but it looks like its heading into one of the fielder's hands. A lot of success comes down to being in the right place at the right time, which is the opposite case for the Mate 30 Pro. At this stage, don’t go chasing waterfalls, because the Mate’s future is looking uncertain.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro initial review: Polarizing powerhouse

I've been using a Chinese 4G Huawei Mate 30 Pro (model LIO-AL00), which, like all Huawei's phones sold in mainland China, lack any Google services. This phone isn't entirely representative of what Western markets will get when the Mate arrives on European shores; likely the China-specific apps will be swapped out for local alternatives, should Huawei still be unable to preload Google's apps and services.

Huawei will make other announcements about the Middle East and Latin America in due course, but has promised to release it there as well. Also upcoming is the 5G version, which is likely to show up further into Q4, at least in China to begin with. The 8 GB/256 GB model will retail for 1099 Euro, with the 5G version having the same specifications for 1199 Euro.

The Mate 30 Pro is a fantastically designed smartphone. The camera is superb. The design is a decent progression from the Mate 20 Pro, and we like pretty much everything about it. But there's a massive problem with it that shouldn't be underestimated: The lack of Google apps is a big problem. How can stores, networks, or we recommend it against the P30 Pro or a competitor? As enthusiasts of tech, that makes us very sad, but it is the truth. Such bad news can probably only be mitigated by a low price.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro Review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English
An extremely-capable all-rounder, Huawei has ensured that the Mate 30 Pro has the hardware innovation to tackle even the most potent competitors on the market. Its quad-camera may change the tide of video capture superiority against Apple, the new Kirin chipset will be able to outpace most of the current silicon on the market and phone battery and fast-charging chops mean it'll outlast most other phones out there. But outside of China, all of that effort will likely have been for nought, with the lack of Google Play Services tainting the user experience. If and when the US government revokes its ban, Huawei is ready to reinstate this much-needed features but until that point, this otherwise excellent-looking phone will likely be passed up for less politically volatile alternatives.

Huawei Mate 30

The new Huawei Mate 30 series has introduced a new range of invigorating and lustrous colors as the device’s coat of paint. The Huawei Mate 30 comes with three trendsetting color options of classic black, a fluorescent space silver, and also an alluring emerald green. Apart from that, the Huawei Mate 30 has also prolonged its battery life. The Huawei Mate 30 smartphone model can now also charge at a faster pace with a tested 40 W rate whereas wireless charging is capable for 24 W. The Huawei Mate 30 features an expanding display from edge to edge with an ultra-curved waterfall screen around the sides of the device with a measurement of 6.53-inch horizontal display for its display alone. The ultra-curved screen offers a wide area, which ultimately enhances user experience. At the same time, physical volume buttons are replaced through finger-touch on the screen by double-tapping and scrolling on screen edges from both left and right sides. One of the signature features of the Huawei Mate 30 is the quad camera lens, which has showcased both waterproofing and dust-resistance attributes. The Huawei Mate 30’s lenses have a circular module to sharpen its visualization. The camera setup for the Huawei Mate 30 comprises if an ultra-wide lens, regular lens, telephoto lens and a Time of Flight sensor for depth. The metrics of megapixels for each respective lens are marked at 40-megapixel Cine Camera, 40-megapixel SuperSensing camera, and an 8-megapixel Telephoto Camera. To ensure users can enjoy a wholesome, universal experience in using the Huawei Mate 30, the brand company has adopted touchless gesture control in which users of the Huawei Mate 30 can simply grip their hand in front of screen to capture a quick screenshot. In regards to security options, the Huawei Mate 30’s interface is capable of identifying the user’s face direction in correspondence to the prior configuration of notification settings. The Huawei Mate 30’s intelligent care system will also hide notification details on the screen preview when someone else is taking a peek on their screen. The Huawei Mate 30 comes with the latest Kirin 990 chip which features the groundbreaking technology of 5G connectivity. The theoretical peak download speeds can reach up to 2.3 Gbps and theoretical upload speeds can reach 1.25 Gbps. It is worth noting, however, that Google has previously released a clear and concise press conference statement that the Huawei series will no longer support Google applications and services due to the implementation of a trade ban. However, it is rather peculiar that Android 10 is somehow still accessible for the Huawei Mate 30 smartphone model to install other mobile applications and services.

Huawei Mate 30 Review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English
As with its launch sibling, the Huawei Mate 30 is a promising high-end device tainted by the US government's ongoing umbrage with Huawei and its products. While not impossible to reinstate Google Play Services, only committed and Android-literate users will make the effort to add what most would consider 'missing features' back onto the phone's otherwise well-rounded and nicely improved software experience. If you can look beyond this shortcoming (or you're based in China where the point is moot) the Mate 30 is an excellent and more affordable alternative to the top-tier Mate 30 Pro that still has hardware capable enough to compete against most, if not all of the current flagship phone market. Until the Mate 30 makes its way to market, why not consider some solid Huawei phones that do still come with Google Play services right now? We found the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 X both excellent flagships that still stand up today, along with the superb photographic capabilities of the Huawei P30 Pro to consider.

The Huawei Mate 30 takes the core elements of the Mate 30 Pro, but forgoes some of that phone's top-end features to keep the price down. However, as with all the new Huawei phones you can't access Google's services on this handset.

Huawei has promised the US-China trade war will not affect the Mate 30 launch and indeed it didn't stop the maker from going full steam ahead with its plans. Huawei has announced the Mate 30 series on September 19 in Munich, and the new phones are looking very intriguing, with or without Google's services framework.

Obviously, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is still undertaking the mission of exploring the most cutting-edge technologies and embarking on the top-level specifications.

The first “explosive” in the 5G era, stabilized at the end of 2019 and the main force of the 5G flagship in 2020.
