Cracked the screen on Huawei P30 Pro Amber Sunrise + A Short Review
This blog has a focus on STEM and therefore I thought I’d share a little experience with hardware tech. See my first blog entry to read on why I started this blog Setting up a new female developer blog.
I personally use a Samsung S9 with dual sim, which is my work phone I got september 2018. It’s a great phone and it serves its purpose. So why am I reviewing a brand new Huawei P30 Pro?
My partner bought this phone actually for himself a few weeks ago, as he has been using an older Samsung S6. He use to have a Samsung S6 Edge which he bought back in 2015. It then broke down by itself and completely stopped working back in winter 2018. So he decided it was time for an upgrade, since the current S6 he’s been using had very poor battery time.
The entire june he was contemplating whether to get the Samsung S10+ (being a Samsung mobile fan) or the Huawei P30 Pro. So he decided on the Huawei P30 Pro.
So he got the brand new phone a Wednesday, fixing the settings moving over his stuff from his old phone etc. Spending the evenings after work with his new toy. Weekend came about and we had a lovely and highly eventful weekend. Ending the weekend with a calm Sunday sunbathing at the park next to our home and just having a great ending of the weekend.
On Sunday at around 4 PM we biked back home and I took his phone in my purse together with my own phone. Picking up my bag from my biking basket it was half open, so both our phones drop face down on the ground. Unfortunately the Huawei did not have a case, whilst my Samsung did, and so the front screen got a pretty big crack on the screen of the brand new Huawei. See image below.
Luckily we have a great insurance company and we got it covered by our homeinsurance. So my partner will be getting a brand new Huawei P30 Pro.
Review of Huawei P30 Pro Amber Sunrise
Except for being fairly slipper this phone is pretty good for it’s price.
It has four Leica cameras, not one or two, but four! The camera has a wide angle lens, which gives you the ability to take great selfie pictures. It also has f/1.8 apeture, which is awesome! You can take fantastic instagram-friendly macro shots.
The phone has a supercharge setting, enabling you to charge up to 70% within 30 minutes. It’s quiet price worthy for it’s features.
The only con I would say is the fingerprint sensor. On my Samsung S9 it’s under the camera on the backside of the phone, which I think is awesome and is a really great feature. The Huawei has it on the front, like most phones, and sometimes it has hard time sensoring your fingerprint. It’s still fairly good compared to other front-screen finger sensors.
Overall it’s a really good phone with a nice looking back. Just make sure to order a case for it asap when you’ve decided to get it! 😉
