Connectivity & Ports

Huawei, as a telecommunication company, has once again packed the P30 with the best in terms of connectivity. It comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and also NFC. The latter here works best if you have a Huawei laptop as you can transfer files wirelessly through OneHop, their proprietary WiFi direct file transfer method between phone and laptop.

At the left is where we’ll find the card slot. Huawei has opted for a single nano SIM card slot and another hybrid slot. Instead of using the commonly-found microSD card, Huawei once again opted for the proprietary NM card just like the Huawei Mate 20 series.

Headphone jack!

The bottom of the phone is where we’ll find the 3.5mm audio jack, a USB-C port, speaker grill, and two antenna lines. The speaker sounds pretty hollow and I personally prefer speakers from their previous generation. Keep in mind that the Huawei P30 only has a single bottom-firing speaker. No stereo.

At the right side is where the power button and volume rocker is found. Once again, Huawei retained the distinct, indented red line for the power button. Nice visual and tactile feedback.

At the top of the phone we can see the secondary microphone port alongside with two distinctive black antenna lines. They’re just… incoherent with the overall aesthetic of the phone, in my opinion.

It also seems like Huawei is completely killing the physical fingerprint reader as they have moved it under the display. Yes, it works – but still prefer something physical.
