Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro​ 

In term of battery, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is powered by 4500mAh battery, while the Mate 30 uses 4200mAh. The charging performance is basically the same.

At present, the major ecommerce platforms are booked for sale of 4G versions, and 5G versions will be available for sale in November.

Finish the above official differences to me, and then talk about the advantages and disadvantages of this mobile phone.

Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro: Advantages

As the brand-new flagship smartphones, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 phones adopt the latest Kirin 990 processor, which uses the latest 7nm EUV technology on top of the core CPU, integrates 5G baseband and can support independent and non-independent 5G networks of NSA and SA.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro has great advantages over Mate 30 in camera specifications and 3D face recognition. The camera combination is still a classic combination of wide angle + ultra wide angle + long focus. Compared with most Android phones in China, the USB-typec interface specifications of the two phones are also relatively high, supporting USB3.1 GEN1, and DP1.2 features. And support analog and digital signals, with external DAC chip adapter listening to music is very good, more than 4000mAh battery for your sense of security is still very enough.

Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro: disadvantages

Moderate screen resolution

In the official screen parameters column, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro has a screen resolution of FHD+ 2400 x 1176, and the Huawei Mate 30 has a resolution of 2340 x 1080. Considering the screen sizes of both phones are more than 6 inches, which is not very high resolution. The screen supply must also come from BOE. Compared to the 3120 x 1440 pixels on Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the screen resolution of the Mate 30 Pro is downgraded.

Not support the latest WiFi6 

Also in the parameters column, Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 do not support WiFi6, which only supports 160mhz's 802.11ac 5G-WiFi network, as far as the currently released mobile phones are concerned. Only Samsung's S10 series and Samsung's Note10 series and Apple's iPhone 11 series support the WiFi6 network.

Wrap up 

Although most people may say that the WiFi network with a 5G network is not important, it is a pity that the Huawei Mate 30 series is missing as a flagship WiFi6 network, especially compared to the 4G version of the Huawei Mate 30 series. On the screen, Huawei Mate 30 Pro is a step back from the previous generation of Mate 20 Pro resolution, in the words of the yellow seal, "it's not that it's not unusable."

In addition, the new Huawei Mate series smartphones are also set at a high price. The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro models will start at 799 euros ($883) and 1099 euros ($1,215), respectively, while the Mate 30 Pro 5G model will cost 1,199 euros ($1,326). Which may be another negative factor for the consumers.
