Huawei Mate 30 Pro vs Mate 30 | Hands-on comparison

Comparing Huawei's Mate 30 Pro vs the Mate 30, revealing the differences between them for camera tech, general specs, design, battery life, performance and everything else. This hands-on review with the new 2019 flagship smartphones shows how they stack up and shows which might be best for you.

One of the primary differences is the camera hardware, with the Pro version of the Mate 30 sporting a quad-lens setup complete with 40MP SuperSensing Wide and Ultra-Wide Cine lenses. These can capture video at 4K 60FPS, with improved image stabilisation, slow motion action and other bonus features. The standard Mate 30 doesn't have most of those video features, yet photo capture remains much the same. You still get a 3x optical zoom, plus wide angle camera mode.

Both Huawei phones deliver next-gen performance with a Kirin 990 chipset, while the Mate 30 Pro wins on battery capacity. You also get that Horizon Display which looks beautiful, wrapping around the edges of the phone.

As far as software goes, the Mate 30 and the Pro version both deliver Android 10 with EMUI 10 on top. Are you more tempted by one of these Huawei handsets? Let us know below!
