Wrapping up the Huawei P30 review
After using the Huawei P30 for some time, I find it offer nothing particularly unique or special other than what they have always been advertising – the zoom. Yes, it is impressive – though it is quite a niche feature. Great for a party trick, but not so much for day-to-day use. Also, the color inconsistency between the 3 cameras is annoying.
The EMUI software is definitely dated and needs to be updated not only in terms of design, but also its functionality. The aggressiveness in killing apps just to boost their battery life is annoying as I have lots of background apps. Sure, I can manually allow certain apps to run in the background, but that’s tedious.
Huawei is asking for the price of RM2,699 which I think is great – if you always use the zoom feature. Else, consider other smartphones in the market instead. We have the HONOR 20 series that’s dropping in soon, with similar specs. For a much better overall experience – including the best software – consider the Samsung Galaxy S10e that you can buy for RM2,299 now.
