The smartphone market is one of the most competitive markets out there. People don’t even remember the time when all you required from your mobile phone was the ability to call another person. The flashlight on the mobile was actually considered a useful function and the ability to play “Snake” on it was the pinnacle of mobile entertainment. In a short period of time, we have progressed so much that smartphones have become an integral part of our lives. Being able to take a high-quality picture on your phone is mandatory. Every year we get advances in this field. The pictures have become of such high quality, that the phone industry has all but overtaken the photo camera business. Huawei understands how important this feature is. Instagram, one of the most popular social media platforms is entirely built on the ability of its users to take daily high-quality pictures. So, it is no surprise that the focus of their P series has entirely been on providing best devices for photography. Let’s take a look at what their new entry in the series P30 is all about and how it holds up to the competitors.
The series overall has been a standout for any users who take their photography seriously. Providing the best experience for those people has been the priority for Huawei and it has been paying off. This new entry to the series promises to revolutionise the way we use our phone’s cameras. At least that the promise was given by Huawei itself. While having the best camera on the market give you a huge advantage over your competitors, that’s not the only standard Huawei has to satisfy to be able to please a wider market.
First, let’s take a look at the price. There are several models for P30. It will help us determine how harshly we must judge its capabilities and what we are to expect. The price varies depending on the country and currency you are using but at average, you will be looking to spend around £900 for P30. There are two other options available for this phone. Huawei P30 light which has a considerably lower price range (and inferior capabilities) and P30 pro, which has a much heftier price (around £1150)
The price of P30 is certainly a bump up from the previous model, however, is still remains within the bracket of the medium-high end. But here is the caveat, with the model boasting triple camera, its photography capabilities are enough to compete with the best smartphones that their biggest competitors can come up with. Due to 40 MP main camera and RYB format (as opposed to RGB), Huawei claims that the quality of the picture will not suffer even in sub-optimal lighting. In addition to this M30 comes with the 32MP front camera, making it one of the best devices for photography available on the market and definitely must buy in this price range.
Huawei P30 is a medium sized phone. Its physical parameters are 149.1 x 71.4 x 7.6mm with a weight of 165 grams. It also has an excellent design and beautiful gradient colours. Corning Gorilla Glass elevates its look into a truly magnificent looking smartphone.
