Finder score
  • Battery Score 4.5
  • Camera Score 4.5
  • Design Score 4
  • Performance Score 4.5


The Huawei P30 Pro's camera has to be seen to be believed, but it's not the only great thing about Huawei's latest flagship phone.

The good

  • Astonishingly good camera.
  • Hefty battery life.
  • Kirin 980 performs well.
  • Nice design.

The bad

  • Custom storage format.
  • Prone to fingerprints and scratches.
  • No headphone jack.
  • Poor video stabilisation.
  • EMIU is still a messy UI.

Huawei P30 Pro

While Huawei is fighting some serious battles in its network business, it's gone from strength to strength in the mobile handset market. The Huawei P30 Pro's primary pitch lies around its triple lens camera system, but this isn't a one-trick phone. With great battery life and some of the best performance we've seen out of any Android phone, this is rather easily your best current Android phone option.


  • Range of colour choices, but we only get two.
  • Waterdrop notch.
  • Quick in-glass fingerprint sensor.
  • No headphone jack.
  • Prone to fingerprint smudges and small scratches.

  • Triple rear lenses.
  • SuperSpectrum sensor gives great results.
  • 10x zoom works well in good lighting.
  • 50x zoom rarely satisfies.
  • A great encouragement to play around with photos.
  • Video quality isn't great.

  • Kirin 980 performs well.
  • EMUI is still a poor launcher.
  • Screen vibration is good for calls but not for music or video.

Battery life

  • 4,200mAh battery delivers exceptional battery life.
  • Battery optimisations are very aggressive.
  • Fast wired or wireless charging.
  • Reverse wireless charging is still a gimmick.

  • Huawei is leading the premium pack again.
  • The phone for photo enthusiasts.
