Is this the compact camera "killer"?

Huawei P30 Pro in Test: This Cell Phone Kills the Compact Cameras Definitely. Despite weaknesses, the tenfold zoom of the phone shows that small digital cameras will soon lose their last rationale The first decade of the 2000s was the decade of digital cameras.

They made rapid progress and replaced analogue systems as the standard for photography. Even the first smartphones did not change that much at first, their integrated photo modules were at the beginning with their low resolution and the poor picture quality little more than an emergency solution. But even here, the technology has made progress, and the handset manufacturers discovered that a good camera for many consumers is a crucial purchase reason. In the meantime, it is hardly possible to distinguish between a good smartphone and a standard compact digital camera in normal photos. Which is why it is not surprising that the sales of the latter have fallen dramatically in recent years. But they still have an advantage: even cheap models bring an optical zoom.

But now they threaten to lose their last ace up their sleeve. Huawei has introduced the P30 Pro, a new smartphone flagship that brings ten times the zoom. The P30 Pro is a sleek, but definitely not a small and with 192 grams also a rather heavy smartphone. This is also shown by the display diagonal of 6.5 inches. In terms of design, something has happened to its predecessor. The lower edge has been narrowed down because the previously stored fingerprint scanner is now under the display. The Notch at the top has been scaled down to the "drop" format, and on the sides of the screen is now bent down, as it is known from Samsung phones since the Galaxy Edge models. 

Actually  they are the first choice when making holiday travel and vacation around the world.

Ergonomically, larger phones are beneficial, and it is generally not possible to reach upper portions of the display without finger acrobatics. But the problem can be alleviated by the one-hand mode of the Android 9 based EMUI system. The rounded edges are a rather difficult to understand change, because in addition to higher risk of damage in a crash of the device during the test they were always cause for accidental incorrect entries. photo: standard / pichler The case made of metal and glass is very well made and the phone corresponds optically also to the price of around $ 1000,-. 

However, the backside is a magnet for fingerprints and so smooth that the P30 Pro likes to wander into the abyss despite the slightly protruding camera module, if it lies on a not completely flat surface. Good Performance Under the glossy cover Huawei's self-developed Kirin 980 chip hides to ensure good performance. You already know him from the Mate 20 and Honor View 20. And as already from that experience one can say: He does what he should. In benchmarks is about on the level of Qualcomms last year's flagship Snapdragon 845th In practice, he lifts multitasking and graphically complex games without much effort. Depending on the model, he has 6 or 8 GB of RAM at his side. The onboard memory can choose between 128, 256 and 512 GB. Optionally, an extension is possible if you want to buy a memory card for Huawei's proprietary "Nano Memory" format. photo: standard / pichler 

The OLED screen resolves with 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, whereby the operating system can use situation-specific also lower Ausflösungen, which can free up power reserves and spare the Akku. The presentation quality is excellent. Colors are strong, the contrasts strong. It can also HDR10 content to play on it, which movie fans should be happy. The remaining specifications are up to date with the P30 Pro. The phone dominates LTE, ac-WLAN, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC. An infrared module also makes it possible to turn the device into a universal remote control via app. Corded data transfer and battery charging work via a Type C USB 3.1 port.
