Huawei P smart Pro Smartphone Review - The most unnecessary smartphone in 2020

New, but still very familiar. The Huawei P smart Pro is the spitting image of a Huawei smartphone from last year. But not only that - Honor also introduced already another model to the market that strongly resembles the P smart Pro. Find out in our review of the P smart Pro how well the mid-range smartphone with a pop-up camera fares in our test and whether it is still worth buying.

Not only the P Smart Z from the same manufacturer, but also the Honor 9X look exactly like the newest pop-up camera model from Huawei, the P smart Pro. In order to be able to continue to offer Google Services in Germany as well as other countries, the Chinese manufacturer keeps the specifications mostly the same.

All three Huawei smartphones share the design, a 6.59-inch LCD display with 2340x1080 pixels, a 16-MP pop-up camera, as well as the Kirin 710F and a 4000 mAh battery. The only differences are the color options, the storage, the camera equipment, and the placement of the fingerprint sensor.

Similar to its sibling models, the P Smart Pro bets on a notch-free look, with a 16-MP selfie camera popping up from the case when needed. For this reason, the 6.59-inch display also does not need a punch hole, giving the Huawei smartphone its 84% display-to-surface ratio, which is efficient for a smartphone in the mid-range price segment. 

The slightly curved back is available in the colors black (Midnight Black) and blue (Breathing Crystal) and is made from plastic that does not feel very high-quality in the hands. This feeling is amplified by the plastic frame and the slightly hollow back that we already complained about in the Honor 9X and P Smart Z.

Equipment - A 3.5-mm audio port in the Huawei smartphone

Video content from streaming services can be watched in HD quality on the P smart Pro, because the Widevine DRM level is specified as L1. In our test unit, the internal UFS storage offers a capacity of 128 GB, with only about 113 GB available in the state of delivery. The storage continues to be expandable up to 512 GB via the microSD slot, with the exFAT file system being supported.  

Software - Huawei smartphone with Android 9

On the P smart Pro, Android version 9, which is not current anymore, is installed and extended by the in-house EMUI 9 user interface. At the time of our testing, the security patches are on the level of January 2020.

Communication and GPS - Slow WLAN in the Huawei P smart Pro

The integrated WLAN module supports the IEEE 802.11 b/g/n standards, and the transfer speeds we measured between the Huawei smartphone and our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router turn out correspondingly low. For wireless communication with peripheral devices, there is also an NFC chip. The Huawei smartphone is only able to support version 4.2 of Bluetooth.

With its hybrid slot, the dual-SIM smartphone can access the mobile Internet at LTE speeds with up to two nanoSIM cards. The number of frequency bands supported by the P smart Pro is low, and the mid-range smartphone can only access 6 LTE bands.

In order to evaluate the locating accuracy of our test unit in practice, we record a route in parallel with the Garmin Edge 500 GPS bike computer for comparison. With more than 300 meters (0.19 miles), the measured deviation of the GPS module is relatively high. The locating can also take several minutes, until the position is determined by the GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou satellite systems.

Telephone Functions and Voice Quality - P smart Pro without VoLTE

Huawei P smart Pro smartphone

While we saw a Wi-Fi Calling option in the settings, we could not find an option for Voice over LTE (VoLTE), which allows voice calls using the 4G net. The voice quality ranges at a solid level. The reception of the integrated radio module is also average. 

Cameras - A Huawei smartphone with a 48-MP camera

Although the motorized 16-MP front camera is no selfie champion, it is quite suitable for social-media content. Huawei has equipped the back with a triple-camera arrangement. As already in the Honor 9X, the main camera consists of a 48-MP wide-angle module with the Sony IMX582 image sensor and an open aperture of f/1.8. The wide-angle lens has a resolution of 8 MP, and the third 2-MP sensor is used to compute depth information.

In daylight, the Sony camera sensor offers quite a lot of details and a good image sharpness same as in the Xiaomi Mi 9T. As our camera tests have already revealed, the Sony IMX sensor in the Huawei smartphone has visible weaknesses in bad light conditions. To play videos in UHD resolution is not possible.

Accessories and Warranty - The Huawei smartphone includes a case

The P smart Pro is delivered with a modular 10-Watt charger, a USB cable, and a protective cover. 

The warranty period is 24 months starting from the purchase date.

Input Devices and Operation - P smart Pro with a fingerprint sensor on the side

The 6.59-inch display translates inputs accurately and quickly up to the corners of the touchscreen. The P smart Pro offers a fast and reliable fingerprint sensor that is placed in the frame. As in the two sibling models, there is still no biometric authentication via 2D face recognition by the front camera.

Sub-pixel arrangement

With a resolution of 2340x1080 pixels and a diagonal of 6.59 inches, the display achieves a pixel density of 391 ppi, which ensures sufficiently sharp display contents in regular use and at normal viewing distances. 

At 480 cd/m², the maximum brightness we measured is absolutely satisfactory for a 2020 mid-range smartphone, and with an activated brightness sensor, the P smart Pro only achieves 475 cd/m². The realistic APL50 test (Average Picture Level) with evenly distributed bright and dark areas also results in an almost similar maximum brightness of only 452 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 17539 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The panel's black value of 0.47 cd/m² results in a contrast ratio of about 1000:1 for the Huawei smartphone, which is a bit low considering the OLED competitors and the Redmi K30. In the realistic APL50 measurement, we determine a black value of 0.48 cd/m², slightly reducing the contrast ratio some more.

Using the i1pro 2 X-Rite photo spectrometer and the CalMAN analysis software, we evaluate the color reproduction of the P smart Pro display. At 7.8 for grayscale and 5.7 for the mixed colors, the average Delta-E deviations are significantly above the ideal target range of <3. The LCD of the P smart Pro covers most of the sRGB color space.

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
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10 ms rise
↘ 18 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 60 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
51.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.2 ms rise
↘ 30 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.7 ms).

On sunny days, the liquid crystal display does not offer sufficient brightness to be able to read the display contents without difficulties. However, the stability of the viewing angles is good, and the decrease of brightness is low even at extreme viewing angles.

Performance - Huawei smartphone with HiSilicon Kirin 710F

The HiSilicon Kirin 710F from the year 2018 built into the Huawei P smart Pro uses four ARM Cortex-A73 processor cores with up to 2.2 GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores with up to 1.7 GHz in a big.LITTLE coupling. The "F" in the model label stands for FCCSP (Flip Chip Chip Scale Package), so it is manufactured slightly differently than the Kirin 710 without the "F" in the label. The integrated graphics card is an ARM Mali-G51 MP4. 

In the benchmarks, the Kirin 710F in combination with 6 GB of RAM is unable to keep up with the Android competitors in our test. The results of the P smart Pro are inferior particularly compared to a current Kirin SoC as built into the Huawei P40 Lite, or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G in the Redmi K30 in the processor-heavy as well as the graphics-intensive benchmarks.  

In everyday operation, the system performance is satisfactory, and the navigation in the Android user interface works mostly smoothly. However, during multi-tasking there are some noticeable delays, and the load times are longer. In combination with the very slow WLAN module, the Huawei smartphone looks a little outdated in terms of its performance and shows little mastery of the daily demands.

Games - Huawei smartphone without gaming ambitions

The mid-range GPU in the P smart Pro is based on the Bifrost architecture and uses four of the possible twelve cores in the MP4 variant. In terms of the graphics APIs, the Mali-G51 supports graphics standards such as OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, as well as DirectX 11 and Renderscript.

Graphically demanding games such as "PUBG Mobile" or "Asphalt 9" are playable at high details with the P smart Pro. However, in the best quality settings we see repeated drops in the frame rates.

The audible range of the mono speaker in the Huawei smartphone is not very linear, and the sound spectrum is dominated by tones of middle and high frequencies as expected. Bass cannot be heard with the speaker in the P smart Pro.

In contrast to the quite tinny sounding speaker at the bottom of the case, the 3.5-mm audio port is sufficiently loud for music reproduction and free from noise.

From our point of view it is not clear why the Chinese manufacturer would repeatedly bring a new reissue of the P smart Z to the market, since last year's Honor 9X is already a Huawei P Smart Z with a storage upgrade and a slightly improved main camera.

The price of the Huawei P smart Pro has to fall significantly to make the whole package attractive. 

The question then presents itself why users should not choose a Honor 9X, since the price for that has dropped in the meantime by more than 100 Euros (~$114) making it significantly more affordable than the P smart Pro. It also comes without the extremely slow WLAN module.

Unfortunately, the Huawei smartphone (still) does not support NFC, which would really be a must, considering the price class. Accordingly, it cannot be used for functions such as contactless payments. In addition, the P smart Pro is delivered with Android 9, which is not current anymore, as well as outdated security patches. But at least Google Services such as the Play Store are preinstalled. 

Those who are looking for a mid-range smartphone in a strong overall package should take a look at our review of the Xiaomi Redmi K30

My great passion has always been mobile technologies, especially smartphones. As a technology enthusiast, the half-life of my devices is not exactly high and the latest hardware is just good enough - manufacturer or operating system plays a minor role, the main thing is state-of-the-art
