Huawei had launched three of the P30 series phone in Nepal. Among which, Huawei P30 stands in the middle between the high-end P30 Pro and the mid-ranger P30 lite, in terms of specs and also the price. We should know that P30 is a premium phone which lacks only a few specs than that of the beast P30 Pro. Here is what we have felt about the device after using it for a month. Find the review of Huawei P30 phone below.
First, let’s discuss the looks of the Huawei P30 phone. The 6.1 inches FHD+ OLED display with the dewdrop display has a splendid look, even with the flat screen unlike its bigger sibling; the P30 Pro. The Phone looks premium with the rounded edges, the shiny design, and the Glass+Metal mix. The display also has nice visibility in the bright sunlight and also has vibrant colors.
The smaller 6.1-inch screen and the rounded edges make the phone easier to hold on one hand. The backside of the phone has a triple camera on the side while the several gradient colors make the phone look stunning. The one we have here with us has breathing crystal color which consists of a mix of white, sky blue and purple shadows.

The bottom of the phone has a speaker grill, 3.5 mm headphone jack and the USB type C. Whereas the right side of the phone has the volume rocker and the power button. This is the easiest placement of volume rocker and power button so far. The SIM tray lies on the left side of the phone.
The in-display fingerprint scanner makes it convenient to secure and instantly open the phone. Though it is fast most of the times, it does not work well with wet hands.
Let’s come to the performance of the phone. As the phone is powered by the powerful Kirin 980 Processor: the same as that of Huawei P30 Pro, there are no complaints about the performance of the device. The phone has got 6 GB of RAM which is the minimum RAM for a premium phone at the time when it was launched. The phone being that powerful can handle multiple tasks at a time. P30 also provides a great gaming experience that playing PUBG on the phone had no lags.
This is the part where P30 excels though being a little less powerful than the quad-camera in P30 Pro. Huawei P30 boasts a triple rear camera system with outstanding zoom mechanism. Can we say this is the best zoom camera phone in the market?? Well, the answer is yes but it falls a little behind than its bigger sibling, the P30 pro due to the 10x optical zoom capability. Now there are more phones with such capability like the Oppo Reno 10X zoom.
Huawei P30 has 3X optical zoom and 5x hybrid zoom capability that comes handy when you want to take pictures of an object from a distant. Here is a post with pictures taken at 1X, 3X and 5X zoom.

The triple camera system is a combination of 40 MP, f/1.8, 27mm main sensor, 16 MP, f/2.2, 17mm ultrawide and 8 MP, f/2.4, 80mm telephoto (3X), OIS lens. The combination captures a nice photo using Auto mode, even in the low light situation. The Night mode can make a night dark object look like dusk or a day but you need to hold the camera steadily for long exposure.
The Superspectrum sensor which uses Yellow instead of Green (RYB), produces a better low light picture and better color details. Huawei had partnered with Leica to bring this technology to the P30 camera. The video shooting options in the phone includes 4K @ 30 fps and 1080P @ 60 fps, 720 P @ 960 fps. Video with the phone is also stable due to the presence of EIS.

The front camera of 32 MP, f/2.0 and HDR capability also takes shiny selfies, looking natural. The background blur also makes the photo look like a professional one.
The Huawei P30 has a battery size of 3650 mAH which can be charged fully in an hour using the charger in the box. The battery lasts for more than a day for my daily usage of attending around 50 calls, regular social media and news browsing, video streaming with an on-screen time of 3.5 hours. The battery level did not fall off sharply with continuous streaming, social media browse and audio listening. There is this feature in the phone that tells us which app drains power intensively so that it becomes easy to save the battery juice.
The Kirin 980 SoC built on 7nm process, also makes the juice last longer, due to the battery optimization and killing off unused apps in the background.
Huawei P30, having excellent battery life, better display and better low light, zoom camera fulfils your daily driver requirement for a flagship smartphone. Though the phone lacks the PRO level specs (as compared to that of P30 Pro), it should not be an issue for the level of performance that you would expect. Despite the issue of US baning Huawei to use hardware/software components, Huawei P30 will receive further security updates, OS updates as with previous Huawei phones. So, you need not worry about the ban to affect your Huawei P30 phones. This may be the reason for Huawei to launch two new color options for P30 phones.
