Huawei P50 Pro review - The camera reference among smartphones stands apart

For enthusiasts. The Huawei P50 Pro is the first smartphone of the series that uses a Qualcomm SoC, but otherwise it is completely focused on photography. The new Leica camera promises a high image quality and the P50 Pro also has to offer a lot in other regards. On the other hand, 5G and the Google services continue to be missing.

It isn't that long ago that the Huawei P series was one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year. But with the trade war between China and the US, the manufacturer isn't allowed to use Google services, is unable to produce its own chipsets, and has to make do without 5G even in its flagship smartphone.

Under these difficult circumstances, the P50 Pro attempts to regain its earlier top position and defend its self-chosen label as "photography miracle." Find out in this test, whether it succeeds in these challenges.

Case - Elegant and comfortable to hold

The Huawei P50 Pro is slimmer and lighter than its P40 Pro predecessor, even though the battery capacity has increased. With its rounded display sides, it looks very slim and feels comfortable to hold in the hand. Only the Cocoa Gold and Golden Black color versions are offered in Germany.

The workmanship in the smartphone is very good. Both the front and back are covered by some sort of glass for which no specifications are given. This is framed in a high-gloss metal frame. The Huawei smartphone resists any attempts of warping without showing any signs of a reaction. The gaps are tight and very even, and you can only notice when looking closely, that the gap between the glass and frame is slightly larger in the corners on the back. 

In addition, the Huawei P50 Pro offers an IP68 certification, so it is dust and waterproof. The battery is built-in and cannot be replaced by the user. The card tray cover is flush with the frame and also has the same color.

Equipment - The Huawei P50 Pro is fully equipped

With USB 3.2 (Gen. 1), the Huawei P50 Pro is not only offering a very fast connection, but it also allows for wired display output via HDMI and DisplayPort connection, including an optional desktop mode. Power Delivery for charging other devices is supported, and so is OTG, enabling you to connect peripheral devices.

While there is no notification LED, the smartphone offers an optional always-on display. It also forgoes an audio port, and you have to purchase a corresponding adapter for the USB port separately. Besides Xiaomi, Huawei is also one of the few manufacturers that still offer an infrared blaster at this point, allowing you to use it as a remote control replacement for multimedia devices, air conditioners, or cameras, etc. 

SD Card Reader

The storage of the Huawei P50 Pro can be expanded by up to 256 GB via NanoMemory card. While this is nice, the in-house Huawei format isn't particularly affordable. On the other hand, the transfer rates turn out quite good and the exFAT file system is also supported.

Software - Huawei smartphone with Android 11 and EMUI 12

The Huawei P50 Pro comes with Android 11 but still doesn't offer Google services. The manufacturer continues to use the known EMUI user interface, which is visually indistinguishable from the Harmony OS that is used in China.

Although the Android version isn't the most current, Huawei at least makes an effort to keep the security patches fairly current. In our P50 Pro test unit, they are at the level of January 1, 2022 at the time of the testing.

Even without the Google Play Store, you can still find many of the necessary apps in the AppGallery or install them via Petal Search from the corresponding web sites. However, the latter is a bit cumbersome and interrupted by many security notifications.

While the system itself is very comfortable to operate, those who don't want to leave everything to the automatic updates will constantly be inundated with questions whether they shouldn't be activated after all.

Communication and GNSS - P50 Pro comes with Wi-Fi 6 and LTE

The WLAN module of the Huawei P50 Pro supports Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE-802.11 a, b, g, n, ax), allowing it to communicate in the 2.4 as well as 5.0-GHz range. Unfortunately, the Qualcomm SoC only appears to support VHT80, causing the data rates to turn out lower than in the P40 Pro before. In combination with our Asus ROG GT-AXE1000 reference router, the transfer rates even remain below the capabilities of the standard.

The P50Pro can access mobile data using LTE at best. The frequency band coverage is very extensive, allowing for connections worldwide. However, the Huawei smartphone does not support 5G. The reception characteristics were inconspicuous during the test.

Outdoors, the satellite locating succeeds very quickly and accurately with the Huawei P50 Pro. A large number of networks and frequency bands are supported.

During a bike tour, we compare the locating accuracy of the smartphone with that of the Garmin Venu 2. While the P50 Pro doesn't record the route taken without any mistakes, it still is relatively accurate and records its position fairly often. This makes it very well-suited for navigation tasks.

Telephone Functions and Voice Quality

The calling characteristics of the Huawei P50 Pro are convincing in the test. The voice quality of the ear piece is very good, and loud surrounding noises are also suppressed without distorting the voice of the user. The speaker also sounds attractive in quiet surroundings with only some minimal booming.

VoLTE and WLAN calling are supported, and only managing SIP accounts is not possible in the system settings. 

Cameras - A powerful Leica quad camera

Selfie taken with the P50 Pro
Selfie taken with the P50 Pro

The front camera of the Huawei P50 Pro has a resolution of 13 Megapixels and is able to use an autofocus with eye tracking. While the recordings are convincing, they are characterized by very strong colors in the default settings. Particularly objects in the background appear very sharp. In portrait mode this doesn't happen, and you can optionally either blur the background using a Bokeh mode or replace it in other ways.

However, the showpiece is the main camera, which consists of a total of four sensors, a phase and a contrast autofocus. The primary sensor is a 50-MP True Chroma camera, which is able to use an optical image stabilizer (OIS). It is accompanied by an additional 40-MP monochrome camera, which is even more light sensitive. In addition, there is also an ultrawide angle lens with 13 MP as well as a 64-MP telephoto lens with OIS. The latter allows for 3.5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and 100x max digital zoom. The stabilization of such powerful zoom levels succeeds fairly well, but there is a slight delay with movements. It is always better to support your hand holding the phone. Up to a 30x zoom level, we like the pictures fairly well and they are still usable, depending on the purpose. However, often some intermediate levels such as 5x zoom are not calibrated optimally, and the autofocus seems to have some problems in setting the optimal focus point. The images are characterized by a strong contrast, and the algorithms sharpen the edges very strongly. Higher zoom levels are more of a gimmick. 

The main sensor benefits from the new Huawei XD lens as well as the XD Fusion Pro image engine. With its double lens, Huawei again achieves a powerful low-light performance but isn't in a class by itself anymore. In daylight, the photos are also characterized by a large dynamic range, crisp contrasts, and vibrant colors. You can record videos using both the front and main camera in Ultra HD at up to 60 FPS.

Accessories and Warranty - 66-Watt charger included

The box of the Huawei P50 Pro includes a modular charger (max. 66 watts, USB-A), a USB cable (Type-A to Type-C), a SIM tool, and a transparent protective silicone case. Optionally, you can also purchase other accessories such as cases or charger in the Huawei shop.

The warranty period is 24 months. 

Input Devices and Operation - Solid biometrics in the Huawei P50 Pro

The manufacturer protects the capacitive touchscreen of the Huawei P50 Pro by an additional protective foil. Its transitions to the actual display are slightly too hard, and the sliding characteristics of the foil are definitely not optimal either.

Huawei's in-house Celia keyboard is installed as the default, but Microsoft's SwiftKey, which was always also preinstalled in previous years, continues to be available in the AppGallery, and you can install it without any complications, just like other layouts.

There is an optical fingerprint sensor in the display for biometric security. Even if this isn't an ultrasound version, it still shows itself very reliable in the test, unlocking the P50 Pro quickly and with a high recognition rate. The 2D face recognition works even faster, and its security is supposed to be improved by some AI algorithms.

Display - An accurate OLED panel with 120 Hz

Subpixel structure
Subpixel structure

The display of the Huawei P50 Pro is only minimally larger than that of the predecessor and uses an expanded Full-HD resolution. With a pure white image, the brightness reaches a very good value at up to 790 cd/m² with the activated brightness sensor, but some other smartphones can even become much brighter. With an even distribution of light and dark areas (APL50) up to 823 cd/m² are reached. Those who don't want to use the automatic adjustment by the brightness sensor can get up to 591 cd/m².

The refresh rate can go up to 120 Hz. You can optionally change this in the settings to a fixed 120 or 60 Hz, or the system can adjust this automatically within this range.

The OLED panel of the P50 Pro constantly uses DC dimming, which is supposed to run at up to 1440 Hz to compensate the OLED flickering in the best way possible. However, we only measure 60 Hz.

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 detected 60 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 60 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 60 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors, the Huawei P50 Pro does very well, and at worst the reflective surface can become a bit annoying, depending on the viewing angle.

The viewing angle stability is also convincing. Only at very steep viewing angles, the displayed contents can be overlayed by a slight green veil.

Performance - Huawei P50 Pro uses the Snapdragon 888

The Huawei P50 Pro doesn't use a Kirin SoC anymore but a Snapdragon 888 4G from Qualcomm that is accompanied by 8 GB of working memory. The Adreno 660 is used as the graphics unit.

We ran our benchmarks with the performance mode activated, which is deactivated by default. The differences become noticeable in the Geekbench benchmark. Without the performance mode, the single-core performance drops by 17%, while the performance when using all cores increases by more than 6%. On the other hand, in GFXBench the results remain almost unchanged. So we recommend to leave the performance mode deactivated. Some possible performance increases are not noticeable but only the power consumption is increased instead.

Temperatures

The surface temperatures of the Huawei P50 Pro remain low during idle operation. While they increase under constant load, the smartphone only becomes hand warm in some areas.

During the stress test of 3DMark Wild Life, we see a performance drop of almost 50% already after a short time, so it behaves almost the same way as the Galaxy S21 FE. But this is without the performance mode activated. If it is activated, the P50 Pro overheats after 18 of the 20 runs and interrupts the test. During this time, we measure surface temperatures of up to 41.7 °C (107 °F), which gives absolutely no reason for concern. However, the performance drops themselves are significant enough to cause some stutters during demanding games.

Speakers

The two speakers of the Huawei P50 Pro produce a relatively balanced sound, where you can even hear a little bit of bass. At higher volumes, the highs are slightly too dominant, but otherwise the Huawei smartphone sounds good, particularly at more moderate volumes. 

While there is no audio port, you can optionally purchase the corresponding adapter for the USB-C port. For Bluetooth, the only available audio codecs are SBC, AAC, and LDAC.
