Last year, the Remix team were buzzing with the release of Huawei’s P30 Pro, a phone that boasted one of the best cameras’s the industry, and the world, had ever seen. It’s hugely innovative periscope zoom camera and extremely impressive image quality was nothing short of a miracle, and we loved that.
But Huawei have outdone themselves, and then some, with the recent release of the P40 Pro, one of the most exciting packages in today’s smartphone landscape. A great example of refinement done right, the comfortable design, excellent camera, and impressive detailing (raised corners that curves to mimic water on the brink of breaking surface tension for example) makes the P40 Pro stand out.
The angled aluminium combined with perfect weight-distribution gives this phone unmatched feel in hand, and I’m convinced it’s the best feeling phone on the market.
But in the balance between form and function, the P40 Pro leans more towards function, so let’s get to the important details…
Firstly, there’s the camera, and here Huawei has excelled. The main camera comes with a 50-megapixel sensor, and pixel binning is employed to output a 12 megapixel with an increase in dynamic range and better imaging in low light. It also comes with a wide-angle lens and x5 optical zoom, so you can get the perfect snap, every time. HUAWEI P40 Series also introduces HUAWEI Golden Snap, which includes AI Best Moment, a new smart photography feature that chooses the best frames from a moving pic, AI Remove Passerby and AI Remove Reflection can do away with unwanted subjects and glare from the frame, allowing users to easily enhance their images after the fact.
It comes equipped with a fast charger, rated at 402, which means you’re looking at 80 per cent charge time in 30 minutes, and a full charge in 50, which is pretty epic really, and is likely why it’s been chosen as the official smart device for Emirates Team New Zealand.
Working in close collaboration with global developers, Huawei offers a wide range of global and local apps on AppGallery, Huawei’s official app marketplace. In the store, you’ll find plenty of big-name apps such as Snapchat, Tik Tok and Fornite. Or, for an even simpler way to transfer your apps over from your existing android device, use ‘phone clone’. Open the ‘Phone Clone’ App and select the old and new phones, scan the QR code and establish a connection, select the data and start the migration and voila - you’re good to go! For the apps you can’t find, you can use either Huawei’s built-in browser can create a shortcut to your home screen, or download via apptaken.com.
Huawei Community is a place for users to share their product experiences. You can find more on how to the App installation from there. To learn more, check it out here.
Huawei have taken the P30 Pro and built on its achievements over the last year. This has led to the P4o Pro undoubtedly being a great handset on the market right now.
