The Huawei P30 Pro is absolutely still a good buy one year later if you want a great Huawei phone without caveats and/or an affordable photography powerhouse. Amazingly, there’s not a huge discrepancy in photography quality between it and the competition. In fact, the P30 Pro continues to be better...

Common Questions


Huawei released the P30 Pro on April 5, 2019.


The P30 Pro price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Huawei P30 Pro prices from around the web here on The Informr.


Huawei backs up the P30 Pro with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your P30 Pro has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Huawei support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Huawei's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop.

The Huawei P30 Pro is absolutely still a good buy one year later if you want a great Huawei phone without caveats and/or an affordable photography powerhouse. Amazingly, there’s not a huge discrepancy in photography quality between it and the competition. In fact, the P30 Pro continues to be better than most. There are small gains moving up to the Huawei P40 Pro, but nothing game-changing. Plus the P30 Pro remains very competitive with a host of other Android flagships in terms of features and raw specs. The biggest drawbacks are the lack of 5G, slightly aged performance, and the standard 60hz refresh rate display.

With Google not launching the Pixel 4 series in India, the P30 Pro was one of the best camera smartphones. Samsung seems to have caught up with it’s Galaxy S20 series. I’m yet to try these devices but as an Android flagship, the P30 Pro holds its own ground. Now, the real question is what happens to software support six months from now. I haven’t received security patch in more than three months, making the device vulnerable. If that remains the case then I might have to look for its replacement.

Huawei takes smartphone zoom to the next level

from DxOMark

The zoom on its own will make the new Huawei an extremely tempting option for many mobile photographers, but the camera performs very well in almost all other areas as well. The P30 Pro is easily the most versatile mobile imaging tool to date, allowing you to cover a wider range of photographic situations than any other smartphone.

China wins the camera phone war again

It’s a pretty impressive phone. And if you’re worried about that whole thing about how Huawei might spy on you for China through your phone … well at least with that 32 MP selfie camera, you can be assured your hacked nudes will look impeccable!

With an exquisite design backed by one of the best cameras you'll find today, the P30 Pro is a stellar phone in 2019. The primary 40MP camera takes outstanding photos, but it's the zoom lens that makes the phone particularly enticing: there are no other devices that take such detailed photos at 5x zoom. EMUI is no longer a limiting factor, the battery life is outstanding, and the hardware is top-notch. Put it all together and you get a knockout phone.

If you look at the P30 Pro on its merits alone there is no other flagship on the market today I’d rather have in my pocket. It’s combination of photography prowess, raw power and battery life make for a deadly combination. When we look at Huawei’s current problematic situation the answer takes on new shape. The risk of it not being truly supported in the future has meant some stores have begun pulling the phone from shelves.
