Huwei has to work on camera performance on its software updates, its just 3 days am using this phone and literly unhappy about my purchase, camera produces VGA quality pictures at P30 Lite, also screen display quality is worst, huwei has to bring up some software update to fix camera or else this may not be good phone in india when compare to note 7 pro or any other Redmi phones.
At first, let's talk about the build quality. - the build quality looks pretty decent and it is in a compact profile category - it has front and back glass with metal frame. Backside of the phone that is glass is perfectly fit into the frame, but the screen side is outside the frame sticked with some kind of glue - camera placement in the rear is okay, but it is backed up with mono flash which is in itself weak - in the advertisements I did notice Leica badging on the rear main camera which is missing in the handset delivered - fingerprint sensor is responsive but sporadic glitch has been noticed - the speakers on the bottom of the phone along with 3.5 mm audio jack serve the respective purpose - type c charging point is just fine - related to the audio I believe the phone does not come with the audio Bands or has a fixed auto calibrated audio band. I could not find any equilizer setting anywhere in the phone. It indicates that the hardware itself may be missing - I've found three heating points on the backside of the phone. One near to the camera horizontal patch, one at the centre circular patch, one towards the bottom vertical patch. And these heating points have been seen active always with the screen on time for sure and some times it'll be hot even when picked up after a while, due to some backend process running in the background. No cooling mechanism is in place in my opinion - screen navigation has been smooth mostly and apt on the touch, neither too sensitive nor too unresponsive, but have noticed it to behave slow some times when used after its idle condition. RAM optimisation is either too much when the phone sleeps or waking mechanism is little heavy on the 4 GB RAM - screen quality good. It shows what it says
Now talking about the software and user experience - placement of the back, home, running apps buttons is too close to the keyboard which sometimes irritates due to its compact design. When trying to click spacebar on the keyboard it mistakenly captures home button click it's pretty irritating - camera s/w is too much boasted over to call it as its USP. It's just okay and frankly nothing wow about it. It is too very much saturated when on ai and does job just okay when in normal day light. Night light is something it fails to capture normal photos and saturates it to the max plus too much of noise in the pics taken in night can be seen even with night mode on. Also the selfie camera portrait mode sucks. Too much saturation, object edge fading and sometimes it gets into the object and fade it away. So it is not the USP for sure - talking about the volume control and the output, it is just okay and I believe needs some improvement - the UI of the phone is nearing the stock but for sure is not a lite one - most of the inbuilt huawei apps are uninstallable but has come with many and not just handful - battery optimisation app gives the user an access to how the the app launches but this interrupts with the apps' normal behaviour - call quality is okay - network is also okay - vibration on touch is light - the battery app specifies the battery lasting too much than actual. With 50% of battery charged it shows somewhere around 12 to 14 hours of device on time when in normal usage although the battery on normal usage is seen to discharge quite quickly when on. For this comment it took around 11% of battery. It's with a normal usage. I've not installed any games or anything that's running in the background.
Overall I believe it has been priced high than the actual and will not be able to attract long term users. Also its USP should be its compact looks and not the camera. Heating issues will be pretty common with normal usage too. Few s/w related glitches may be hoped to be fixed with s/w updates. Hardware issues will remain as is. M not sure on how many months or days m going to use this phone. But overall it is not worth for the price-tag
Pros: Rear camera quality is awesome. Light weight. Quick unlock both on fingerprint and face lock. Stylish built.
Cons: Average screen quality. The processor can't handle most tasks thrown at it. Background apps keeps on reloading, forget about multitasking. Unwanted beatification in the front camera. Average battery life.
Not a deal for ₹19,990.
Amazon's customer service is also one of the worst right now. Regret all over.
