    MrElfblade 3 months ago (edited) I switched to the P30 after using Samsuck Galaxy S10e for 2 weeks. Gosh, I'm blown away by the snappy performance, way longer battery life, faster charging, better camera of the P30. While it lags wireless charging and IP68 rating as compared to S10e, the Pros is just too much and too good over the cons. I've never looked back after switching from Samsuck to Huawei. Exynos 9820 is so bad and so outdated when compared to Snapdragon 855 or even the Kirin 980. Huawei for the win here, IMO.

    _ doomkr6ft 2 months ago Exynos is a huge pain. Snapdragon S10e is fantastic though.

    harris yunan 2 months ago I may consider take P30 as my 2nd phone. Currently on pixel xl2. My s10e is my daily driver

    rafid sadman 3 months ago After 1 week of usage this phone is amazing the battery is amazing as well I have a video I posted 3 days back I'll be able to reply to all of your questions and reply to you guys with samples through email as well
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @Gielie Hey, you're welcomed. Glad that you've made this decision and is not looking back. Too bad Samsuck is so rich and spent so much money to advertise their Sucky line of S10 series of devices. The supporters are going strong, just like Apple Fanboys.
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @crybabyN Mobile phone should be in our hand and not plug in for charging whole day long. I wonder what Samsuck engineers were thinking when they design the phone. Glad that you switched Huawei and is enjoying the longevity of the battery life. :-)
  • Gielie
    Gielie 3 months ago @MrElfblade i have the pro version i swapped my s10 plus for the p30 pro and never looked back.Thanks buddy
  • crybabyN
    crybabyN 3 months ago (edited) @MrElfblade totally agree! Such a massive difference! I have been using it all day with heaps of updates and app installations, screen on, photos etc and now it is still on 47% after 2am! It's crazy hey! So glad I got it !
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @crybabyN Yup, I can do without IP68 rating, 50X hybrid zoom and 5X optical zoom, no wireless charging(reverse wireless) , 22.5W instead of 40W Super Charging, 128gb storage instead of 256gb, no TOF sensor. What I'm getting in return is a better form factor phone, a 3.5mm audio jack, and $400 savings in SGD. 😀
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @crybabyN I'm glad that you managed to get a refund from Samsuck, and is enjoying using your new P30. :-) Not only is the battery long lasting, the Super Charging adapter and cable can top up real fast. With all my apps syncing and widgets running in the background, I can still get the phone charged from 9% to 61% in 30 mins. Can the S10e do that? Absolutely not! Slow charging + quick discharging piece of crap.
  • crybabyN
    crybabyN 3 months ago @MrElfblade I am totally agree with you not spending more than 1K on phone, it's not worth it ! Besides, I am not a fan of curved screen so P30 is perfect and just a right size !
  • crybabyN
    crybabyN 3 months ago @MrElfblade I have returned the S10e today and got P30 ! Never been happier lol battery is absolutely great! I was too stressed out with Samsung! It was awful! I had to fight with head office for refund but got it in the end. Dual sim in Huawei P30 and flat screen just what I needed. It showed me the battery expectation of 54 hours without switching everything off like I'm Samsung lol Woohoo
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @Ai Yang Edwin Tan You're welcome, mate. As of now at 11pm, I'm still left with 54% battery life after unplugging the phone at 7am in the morning. 16 hrs and the battery is still going strong. S10e's battery would probably die on me by 3pm, and requires a 3rd charging by now. Go for Huawei instead of Samsuck, you'll thank me later. :-)
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @crybabyN Glad that you can return the piece of Samsuck junk in Australia. Go for the Huawei P30, or if you have a little more to spare, go for the Pro version. For me, I am not willing to spend more than $1k SGD for a phone, so I settled for the P30 only. I'm very satisfied with the phone after using it for one week. Huawei should thank Samsung for creating such a bad user experience.
  • Ai Yang Edwin Tan
    Ai Yang Edwin Tan 3 months ago @MrElfblade Thanks for the reply.. Planning to get one soon..
  • crybabyN
    crybabyN 3 months ago @MrElfblade thank you so much ! I am going to return it here is Australia as I have already returned my first S10e after a week of use, thinking it was faulty. But now, I am certain it was just rubbish for all those modes
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @fang lin You mean you love Samsung phones. Or the name I've given them for producing Sucky gadgets and selling as Premiums?
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @crybabyN Tell me about it. I've used the S10e for 2 weeks and almost ended up smashing that piece of junk onto the floor. Constantly worrying the the battery will die on me. When I unplug from the charger, the battery will deplete by 2% within 10 mins. Samsuck is paying reviewers tonnes of advertising to promote this rubbish phone. I would advise you to return the phone if it's possible in your region. For me, I trade-in Samsuck S10e for a Huawei P30.
  • MrElfblade
    MrElfblade 3 months ago @Ai Yang Edwin Tan I don't like EMUI, but there is an easy fix. I'm using Nova Launcher Prime over EMUI. Battery life was great, easily last me for a full day without having to worry that it'll run out of juice. Camera was fantastic.

    fang lin 3 months ago I love the samsuck
  • crybabyN
    crybabyN 3 months ago Omg let me know ! I have bought Samsung s10e two weeks ago and hate the battery ! It's awful! I am certainly thinking to switch my to Huawei p30

    themickey 3 months ago I have the mate 10 pro and I will be getting the regular P30.
  • Lim Reviews
    Lim Reviews 3 months ago My exact thoughts. People need to try the non-pro version. From Mate 10 sure but upgrade to the P30 non-pro is enough.
  • Toxicity At its FINEST

  • Hussein Kefel
    Hussein Kefel 3 months ago Hi Lim, thanks for this review of the Huawei P30. I agree with you I also don't like the curved screen and this was sad for me to see the P30 Pro with a curved screen. I just wished it was straight flat.

  • tehblizz
    tehblizz 4 days ago Would it be a big jump from a S8? I found it at 350€ and was wondering if I should wait another year before changing phones or if it already makes sense
  • Thomas Hackner
    Thomas Hackner 1 week ago I'm happy with my p30, however I do wish they kept the ois, even with the cut backs of the ip68 and wireless charge. But over all this is probably the best device I've ever had
