Huawei P Smart Z Review: Mid-range smartphone with a pop-up camera

Marcus Herbrich, 👁 Daniel Schmidt (translated by Mark Riege), 06/18/2019

Small bezels and a lot of display. The pop-up camera has arrived in the mid-range. The P Smart Z from Huawei combines premium features such as the pop-up camera with a price in the mid-range segment. However, the implementation of the Huawei smartphones is not always successful and still leaves room for improvements.

Test Huawei P Smart Z smartphone

The first bezel-less smartphone from Huawei without a notch or punch hole does not come from the Mate or the high-priced P series of the Chinese manufacturer, but appears in the form of a mid-range smartphone, the P Smart Z. This is made possible by a pop-up camera module on the top edge of the Huawei smartphone. 

The pop-up camera has a 16 Megapixel sensor and according to the manufacturer is supposed to withstand more than 100,000 motorized pop-up movements and up to 12 kg (~26 lb) of weight. On the back, Huawei has also placed a 16 Megapixel camera that is supported by a 2 Megapixel Bokeh lens. The front of the Huawei smartphone is dominated by a 6.59-inch IPS panel that has a resolution of 2340x1080 pixels. The in-house Kirin 710F SoC that is used is accompanied by 4 GB of RAM. 

With German online vendors, the current street price of the Huawei P Smart Z ranges between 250 and 270 Euros (~$281-303). This places the mid-range smartphone in a very hotly contested price segment and the number of alternatives is accordingly large. As possible competitors and comparison devices, we chose the Samsung Galaxy A50, the Motorola Moto G7 Plus, the Sony Xperia 10, the Huawei P30 Lite, and the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE

The pop-up camera allows the Huawei P Smart Z to manage without a notch or punch hole in the display. Similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro, the case of the Huawei smartphone turns out relatively large due to the pop-up camera module. At 163.5 x 77.3 mm (6.44 x 3.04 in), the P Smart Z can hardly be operated with one hand. At more than 84%, the front of the P Smart Z consists almost entirely of the display and has one of the most efficient display-to-surface ratio in the mid-range price segment - but it still does not achieve the 91% specified by Huawei.  

The slightly rounded back is made of plastic and available in three color variations: black (Midnight Black), green (Emerald Green), or blue (Starlight Blue). The plastic feels a bit cheap in the hands. This impression is reinforced by the plastic frame and also the slightly hollow back of the Huawei P Smart Z, which can be pressed down with just a little force. The motorized camera module also gives a wobbly impression, so that the case quality of the P Smart Z shows some weaknesses.      

Despite the size of the phone, the keys for the volume control and On/Off button can still be easily reached, sit tightly in the frame, and have a comfortable pressure point. The Huawei smartphone lacks IP certification, allowing water and dust to get into the case.

Equipment - Huawei smartphone with a 3.5 mm audio port

The equipment of the mid-range smartphone includes a 3.5-mm headphone jack and a fingerprint sensor. There is no face-unlock function, nor a status LED, and also no Always-On display setting. In terms of the storage selection, buyers of the Huawei smartphone have to be content with 64 GB of eMMC storage, since the Chinese manufacturer does not offer a larger storage variant. After first use, 52 GB are still available to the user. On the other hand, the P Smart Z storage can be expanded up to 512 GB via microSD card. The exFAT file system is supported. 

Wireless transfer of display contents to an external monitor via Miracast is also supported and worked without any problems in a test using a Sony Android TV. While the USB port is Type-C, it is internally connected via USB 2.0 and can charge the smartphone. In addition, it supports USB OTG, so that external storage media or input devices are recognized.

Software - The P Smart Z has Android 9 and EMUI 9.0

As the operating system, the Chinese manufacturer has installed Android version 9.0 and added its own in-house EMUI user interface on top. At the time of the test, the security patches are at the level of March 2019, so they are not quite current anymore.

The user interface of version 9.0 from the Chinese manufacturer appears strongly modified compared to stock Android. On the other hand, users of the Huawei P Smart Z can be pleased about a lot of additional setting options allowing them to personalize the phone. At the state of delivery, the software of the Huawei smartphone already supports Widevine DRM Level 1, allowing streaming of video contents from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and other content providers in HD quality.

Communication and GPS - The Huawei P Smart Z with NFC

Thanks to the IEEE-802.11 a/b/g/n/ac standards, the integrated WLAN module of the P Smart Z communicates in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency ranges. At 191 and 212 Mbps respectively, the transfer speeds between the Huawei smartphone and our Linksys EA 8500 reference router remain slightly below the level of other mid-range smartphones in the price range of around 300 Euros (~$337). In close proximity to the router (Telekom Speedport, W921V), the damping is low at barely -31 dBm. 

The dual-SIM smartphone is able to access the mobile Internet with up to two nanoSIM cards at LTE speeds. The fast standard can be used with both SIM card slots. As is customary for a smartphone in this price class, the amount of frequency bands that are supported by the P Smart Z is limited, and the mid-range smartphone can only access 8 LTE bands. However, for using it locally (in Germany), you will not lack any frequency bands, except for LTE Band 28. 

For wireless communication with peripheral devices, an NFC chip can be used, and the Huawei smartphone also supports Bluetooth version 4.2.

The Huawei P Smart Z determines its location via the GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou satellite systems. Outdoors as well as indoors, the satellite fix succeeds after a short delay of less than one minute with an accuracy of about 5 meters (~16 ft). 

In order to evaluate the locating accuracy of our test unit in practice, we record a bike route in parallel with the Garmin Edge 500 GPS bike computer and our smartphone. The deviations of the GPS module in our mid-range smartphone are very low, and at the end of our 9 km (~5.6 miles) test route, the difference between the recorded routes of the P Smart Z and the professional navigation device is only about 30 meters (~98 ft).

Using the Vodaphone network (D net), the voice quality of the Huawei smartphone is good and allows clear communication on both sides. While the phablet supports making phone calls via WLAN (Wi-Fi calling), we were unable to find a VoLTE setting.

Cameras - The Huawei P Smart Z with dual cameras

The highlight of the P Smart Z is the motorized 16-MP camera above the front, but this concerns only its design language. Despite the pop-up camera, the mid-range smartphone is not a selfie wizard. The recordings tend toward overexposure, are poor in detail, and show clear artifacts. We were also a bit disturbed by the blurriness of the photos. In addition, the aperture of f/2.0 is not very light sensitive. 

The main camera in the back of the Huawei smartphone has two lenses with an aperture of f/1.8 and an autofocus with phase recognition. While the 16-MP main camera has a resolution of 4608x3456 pixels in the 4:3 format, the second camera sensor has a resolution of 2 MP. Thanks to the second lens, you can create Bokeh effects employing background blurriness. 

The quality of the photos is not bad, at least not under good light conditions, particularly considering that the street price will probably soon level out at significantly below 250 Euros (~$281). In terms of the dynamic in the photos as well as the level of details, the recordings of the P Smart Z can only convince to a limited extent. The Sony IMX586 image sensor built into the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE offers a much more attractive photo quality. This is particularly the case under low light, where the P Smart Z shows too much image noise and too little sharpness. 

The front camera can record videos in 1080p at up to 30 frames per second. The 16-MP camera on the back is also only able to record videos in Full HD resolution, but at least it is able to achieve up to 60 FPS.

Accessories and Warranty - P Smart Z with a headset and case

In addition to the smartphone itself, the box contains the quick-start instructions, a modular charger with a nominal power of 10 watts (5 V, 2 A), a USB charging cable, a protective display foil (which has already been installed), a silicone case, and headphones are also included. 

Huawei offers a 24-month warranty period for smartphones.

Input Devices and Operation - A Huawei smartphone with a fast fingerprint sensor

The capacitive multi-touchscreen of the P Smart Z pleases in the test with its accurate and smooth operation. Input of up to 10 fingers simultaneously is supported. The anti-fingerprint glass surface feels comfortable and offers good sliding characteristics. 

The active fingerprint sensor on the back is accurate and also fairly fast. However, after the biometric identification, there is some delay until the display is actually turned on. There is no face-unlock function via the pop-up front camera.

Display - The Huawei P Smart Z with a 6.59-inch IPS panel

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The IPS-LC display measures 15.2 cm (6.59 in) in the diagonal. At a resolution of 2340x1080 pixels, this results in a pixel density of 391 PPI. During normal use and viewing distances, pixel structures are not visible. Subjectively, the display of text contents appears sharp, even with smaller type fonts.   

The maximum brightness of 439 cd/m² that we measured is slightly low for a mid-range smartphone, particularly considering that with the activated brightness sensor to control the display brightness, only 449 cd/m² are achieved. On the other hand, at 92% the brightness distribution is even. 

The realistic APL50 Test (Average Picture Level) with evenly distributed bright and dark areas also achieves almost the same brightness of only 427 cd/m².

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9429 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The combination of the low display brightness with a black value of 0.36 cd/m², which is still considered good for an IPS panel, results in a satisfactory contrast ratio of 1219:1. In the realistic measurement of the display brightness with evenly distributed bright and dark areas (APL50 Test), we determine a black value of 0.37 cd/m², so that the contrast ratio is slightly reduced (1157:1).

Using the X-Rite photo spectrometer (i1pro 2) and the CalMAN analysis software, we evaluate the color reproduction of the P Smart Z display. The sRGB color space is to a large extent covered by the IPS panel. At 8.6 and 6.4 respectively, the average DeltaE deviation in the grayscale and the mixed colors is clearly above the ideal target range below 3. The ideal color temperature of 6500 K is also clearly exceeded by the Huawei smartphone, and the grayscale shows a visible blue tint in bright areas.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
21.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9.2 ms rise
↘ 12.4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 25 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (25.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
40.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18.4 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 48 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (40.2 ms).

The viewing angle stability of the built-in liquid crystal display is able to convince, and the reduction in brightness when looking from an angle is also low. When using it outdoors, due to its low brightness, the IPS panel does not strike a good figure with its pronounced reflections – at least under the currently prevalent summery conditions with bright sunlight.

Performance - The Huawei P Smart Z with a HiSilicon Kirin 710F

Like its sibling model, the HiSilicon Kirin 710F built into the Huawei P Smart Z has four ARM Cortex A73 processor cores with a speed of up to 2.2 GHz and four Cortex A53 cores with up to 1.7 GHz in the big.LITTLE combination. However, its production process is slightly different. The "F" in the model designation stands for FCCSP (Flip Chip Chip Scale Package). 

Similar to the Kirin 980, the mid-range SoC offers GPU Turbo support as well as an integrated Neuronal Processing Unit (NPU), which handles the AI functions. The integrated graphics card is an ARM Mali-G51 MP4. This mid-range GPU is based on the Bifrost architecture and uses four of the possible twelve cores in the MP4 variant. The graphics APIs support the Mali-G51 graphics standards such as OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, DirectX 11, and Renderscript.

In the benchmarks, the Kirin 710F in combination with 4 GB of RAM meets the other Android competitors in our test to a large extent at eye level. However, in the processor as well as the graphics intensive benchmarks, the results of the P Smart Z remain below the Snapdragon 710 of the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE

In everyday operation, the system performance of the P Smart Z is also satisfactory. The navigation using the Android user interface works mostly smoothly. During multi-tasking, some delays occur and the load times are noticeably longer. As before in the P30 Lite, the Huawei mid-range processor does not always appear to handle the daily tasks masterfully.

* ... smaller is better

The measured speeds while reading from and writing to the internal storage are not very high, but on a very good level for eMMC storage. The access rates of the microSD card slot, which we tested with our Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 (max. 270 Mbps reading and max. 150 Mbps writing), are very satisfactory in the Huawei smartphone, compared to the competitors.

Games - The P Smart Z with a Mali G51 MP4

While the built-in ARM Mali-G51 MP4 is not particularly powerful, it still allows to display more demanding 3D games without stutters. Demanding Android games from the Play Store run relatively smoothly at the lowest graphics setting using the GPU.

The control via touchscreen as well as the position sensor responds quickly and accurately in our test.

Speaker

Speaker test: Pink-Noise
Speaker test: Pink-Noise

The maximum volume of the mono speaker on the bottom edge is sufficiently loud at 85 dB(A). However, the offered sound quality is only mediocre. In our Pink Noise measurement, the diagram shows a reproduction of mids and highs that is not very linear. As expected, the bass range in particular is lacking. 

Besides the mono speaker, the audio can also be output via Bluetooth 4.2 or the 3.5-mm audio port. In our subjective impression, music reproduction is sufficiently loud and lacks additional noises.

Verdict - A mid-range phone for design fanatics

Testing the Huawei P Smart Z. Test unit provided by Huawei Germany.
Testing the Huawei P Smart Z. Test unit provided by Huawei Germany.

The Huawei P Smart Z stands out from the mid-range crowd, due to its bezel-less design that manages without a notch or punch hole. This is made possible by its pop-up camera module. However, besides the pop-up camera, the P Smart Z hardly offers any other advantages worth mentioning that help to differentiate the Huawei phone from the Android mid-range. Instead, due to its build, the buyer has to accept significant ergonomic disadvantages. In addition, we only like the quality of the workmanship of the P Smart Z to a limited extent. 

The pop-up camera module makes the Huawei P Smart Z a real looker. Those who can live with the weaknesses that we have pointed out will get a solid mid-range smartphone with great visuals. 

The display quality and the built-in camera modules also did not convince us. Although the front camera has been moved outside the display and should thus have more space available, the built-in lens equipment leaves a lot of room for improvement in terms of its quality.
