The 3-Minute Huawei Mate 30 Pro Review
Huawei Flagship Device
Huawei launched the Mate 30 Pro on 19 September 2019. The launch of this device has been bittersweet as the google play services are not available on this device, but the technological advancements are hard to ignore. The Mate 30 Pro has a similar look to the Mate 20 Pro, the noticeable difference being the halo ring around the triple cameras.
The Mate 30 Pro comes with a 6.6-inch 1080p OLED screen made from Gorilla Glass 6. The galactical design made with glass, aluminum and slender curved edges, comes in a range of magical colors. Not to mention the IR Blaster and gesture control for those tech savvy individuals.

The Mate 30 Pro does not disappoint on the camera side of things due to its collaboration with Leica. Sporting a halo of quad cameras, a 40 MP primary camera, 40 MP wide angle camera, 8 MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and a 3D depth sensing camera. There is also a 32 MP front camera to really bring out the selfie in you.
The new video and image stability with 4K, along with the presence of a new Night mode, makes the Mate 30 Pro overall camera and video experience unique and efficient. Not to mention the smart gesture control features on this device uses a 3D depth sensing camera and a gesture sensor are run simultaneously, to detect facial features and hand movements.
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, the US-China trade ban. This conflict leaves us average users outside China with no Google play services on this device and until the ban gets lifted, we will not be seeing many Google apps pre-installed on the device. Huawei is trying to bring over google apps into their interface and they are offering large incentives to developers to join their platform.
Is it for you?
The Huawei flagship devices bring around so many new amazing features. The Mate 30 Pro is pretty much the up-sized version of the P30 Pro. For those seasoned Huawei users, you will love the new features, and if you’re new to the brand you will not be sorry for the changeover.
What we like
The IP68 splash and dust protection partnered with the new safety features makes the Mate 30 Pro safe from the inside and out. The isolated secure system that has achieved CC EAL, it separates biometric ID info and financial info from the public OS applied in all applications.
What we don’t like
So, not having Google play services is really a deal breaker for most users, but hopefully this will be changing in the months to come as we see how Huawei overcomes this hurdle.
Should you buy it?
The Mate 30 Pro the most recent flagship device has raised our expectations on what we can expect from a smart phone. The processing speeds due to the Kirin 990 5G chipset and 8GB RAM, 5G connection speeds and stunning 40MP images and 4K video. How can you really compete?
