Now here our original Huawei P30 Pro Review continues below.
It wasn’t too long ago that you’d have been laughed out of the shops if you asked for a phone with four cameras, but now, well, a smartphone fitted with multiple camera arrangements is as common as a primary school child doing the floss dance. Huawei P30 Pro search for strengthen this multiple-camera trend. Following the launch of the excellent P20 Pro last year, which introduced the triple camera setup to smartphones for the first time, its successor aims to improve the photography experience still further.

Huawei P30 Pro Review: Design and Key Features
As for everything other than the cameras, Huawei P30 Pro is a carrying on what made last year’s phone so great. It is extremely attractive, inserted between layers of softly curvaceous glass on the front and rear, and comes in some charming, jewelry shop colors. The most eye-catching is the opalescent Breathing Crystal color, which fades from deep purple to a light blue across the rear panel, depending on how the phone catches the light. There’s also a regular black variant for those who don’t get on with such gaudy ostentation.
As you would expect of a modern premium, Huawei P30 Pro is nice and thin, packing a large 6.47in screen into a comparatively compact chassis. Better still, Huawei P30 Pro’s display delivers a slightly more stretched out long-tall aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Of course, along with the arrival of this elongated aspect ratio comes the return of the notch. However, this time around it isn’t an iPhone-like affair; instead, the 32-megapixel selfie camera is embedded in a not-so-obtrusive circular teardrop notch.
