    (In England) For an £800 phone it's a shit idea to buy it. When you watch the advertising for the phone where it specifically states hardly anything else other than how much of a perfect photo taking experience the phone has, then why don't you just buy a proper Digital Camera for £200 instead (Compact or even Bridge). Phones do far more than take pictures and need to have everything stable within them in order to be a good one to have. If a company isn't going to explain in detail (within their Advertising) how perfectly balanced, powerful, how reliable their product is, and all the other things it does then there's something seriously wrong with the other non focused functions. Basically, it's NOT worth £800 and Never will be. Even if they halved the price, it still wouldn't be worth the investment.

    My p smart 2019 has great battery life. I was on a road trip with 6 hours travelling (streaming Netflix on LTE for 6 hours) I got home with 68% battery witch lasted the whole next day. I left my charger in the car and didn't even need it until 2 days later

    Hey, I've got the P30 (non pro version) and there is a headphone jack. But not wireless charging and some other features.
    -Long live headphone jack!
    Anyways, I'm still using bluetooth headphones though...

    The 5x optical zoom is the most significant smartphone innovation in a very long time. Phones haven't done anything that significant in a long time. I just want to see other companies takes on it, like the rumored samsung 10x.

    Linus at the end of the video: "I want my Note 9 back, f*** the notch and long life to headphone jack!"
    Couple months later, Samsung: "Here you go, our Note 10, lol."

    I find that the headphone jack isn't a problem because the phone charges so fast you can make it charge while you're doing something and its fully charged in minutes, it lasts for very long so u don't need a headphone jack and charger

    the Samsung Note 10 will be a beast... with a glory hole and without headphone jack.... nice evolution Samsung, but the design... i love it XD
    To the P30... i really prefer the Note 9... the Note 9 is not the best on the market, but the speakers, the notchless desgin, Samsung´s One UI... it´s a much better phone in my opinion

    Now this is a real review. You take pictures mostly of yourself and other people. Where this phone fails. And the UI is really annoying. Overall Huawei makes good phones for the average user who doesn't care about all that jazz and they can thank the good battery life for that.

    I don't why you got annoyed by the usage notification. It's the best idea for Android. It tells me if apps running in the background and using my microphone, even the app is from Google. But I want to know. Android apps simply have too much permission. I really appreciate this functionality.
    Killing background apps is not only good for the battery life, also for your privacy concern. I also really appreciate that. You have option to stop it like you discribed. The reason it didn't work for you because you have removed the app from the multi task menu by swiping it off the screen. The app didn't implement auto restart or notification long life method. It's not the OS problem. You also have option to lock the app in the multi task menu which you must have not done.

    Well, i think the software part is kinda not right. The Phone has in my opinion one of the best control centers. You dicede wich app is allowed to run or not. I hated it when apps start them self in the background.

    to stop killing background app, you need 2 steps. you have only done one, the second step: setting-> search "special access"->"battery opimisation"-> turn off opimise on the app you want it running at background. you need to do both steps.

    Note 9 is a better phone? For having a jack and not having a notch. Wow what a complex thinking. P30 pro is faster, has twice the charging speed of the note 9, the camera trashes samsung. Battery life better. I have a p30 and it s already miles better than the note 9, cuz i had that too, i had every single samsung and sorry but since p20 pro huawei beats them at almost everything.

    On your Huawei ID settings you can find the code of your phone to unlock the bootloader, now its displayed in settings, I just compared the code of my old Mate 8 obtained with the old method and was the same as the shown in the device list on Huawei ID settings

    Great advertising glitch. Let's promote DBand products at the end of a p30 Pro review. Guess what. They don't seem to sell p30 products period. Was that a dig at Huawei or a Booboo?

    All the bulk went into the camera’s power of this phone which I am very impressed. I ended up having to look at the s10plus because of the bulk and weight of this phone. Too much for me.

      @Danny Shi yes bro. At flagship prices, I can't stand inconveniences. Plus small features like these are ones I use on a daily basis. Would pick a different flagship if stuff like this is missing in one.

    I have just got a p30 pro, got no issues with it. Yes the sound issue is fair, it's not that loud. The phone slipping out of my hand, not happened to me. And not getting my messages, not had that either. Some of your criticisms are personal to you, but not everybody needs the same applications.

    Finally somebody to say the truth. Overpriced and less features. All phones in this price range have got atleast 2K display and stereo speakers whereas this crap dont. Wtf huawei? I wanted to buy this before just for a zoom camera but not anymore. Will go with note 9 or s10+ or even 1+7. Thanks Linus for speaking out truth unlike other asshole reviewers.

    Fuck you Linus, I can't disagree with everything you've said about the phone but at least give it a little smile at the end of the conclusion, you made me feel like I've an Okay flagship phone that not as good as the others or at least compete with the others. 😢
