This is my p40 pro black version i’m using latest emui version, which is 11 for this device. This is huawei p40 pro and it has eight gigs of ram 256 gigs of internal storage and huawei home cpu, kirin, 990, 5g let’s start with the software. This incredible device is underrated, just for one thing, and this one thing is here: google, this is the major huawei device which first was banned by google and not using google services. So we have one year without google. Is this affecting device? Of course, it is at least it’s affecting sales of this device, because people are used with google that’s it end of story, but we, as an android community, of course, have plenty of ways to install google on this device. We have the easy way like gspace dual space, vm os and many more. We have, of course, a way to downgrade this software and install native google services. As i do on this device – and i have tons of video about this – you can check all of them. I already made a review of huawei emui 11, so i will not go so deep inside the software of this device. Every time it’s getting better and better with every update. My opinion is huawei are stopping on written updates. We already speak about this because of google bond, and this device is stuck. We can’t, read them and just huawei are start polishing. This emui version so it’s getting stable, it’s like i’m, using an iphone everything is so smooth at the beginning when this device was released.
I have a small issue with my eyes and its display and that 90hz refresh rate, but now with emui 11 huawei release that dynamic screen refresh rate, which is balance smoothness and battery life and it’s, not hurting my eyes as before. We are waiting for harmony os. I think it will only getting better and better about the battery. What can i say about the battery guys? This is probably the phone with the best battery i use. I have mi 11 it’s battery it’s, not good. I have samsung s21 its batteries even awful. I have also iphone 12. The battery of iphone is good, but the battery here on that device is just perfect. I can make a full two days of use, which is impossible with other devices, with heavy game playing like genting impact call of duty. The battery lasts me a full day. We have here 4 200 milliamps battery and of course, we have a wired charging, which is fast, 40 watts. We have fast wireless charging, 27 watts. Of course, you need huawei proprietary, wireless and wired charge and we have fast reverse wireless charging, again 27 watts and for some reason, if you fully drain your battery, you can go from 0 to 100. Just for 15 minutes with huawei super fast 40 watts charging. You can wirelessly charge your earbuds, you can wirelessly charge your watch or whatever you want and of course like me, you can wirelessly charge your p40 pro overnight, just with a slow wireless charger, that’s a perfect battery, as always expected from huawei.
Of course, huawei has its own app gallery and it’s getting bigger every time. New apps are appearing here. Almost all the apps that i need are now in huawei app gallery, but if there is an app which you can’t find here, of course, huawei release their own petal search engine which you can use for searching applications and everything that you need and just install it. On your device and use it here is petal search, and you can just search literally everything here: let’s just search for facebook, which is an application you can’t find on huawei app gallery. But, of course from here here it is facebook it’s finding in the apps and if you just tap install it will find the apk somewhere and will download it for you and you just need to install it and log in from your device. That’S it battle search. Is a very powerful engine for your huawei device and people are start using now their devices without the need of google applications or google core services? What about the performance and game playing? Personally, i never have heating issues with this device or something else, maybe in benchmark test. This cpu is not as fast as qualcomm, snapdragon, 308 or samsung new axioms, but this cpu is capable for everything. You can run every game that you want genji call of duty, pubg mobile everything is running very smooth, let’s just check again right; Applause, Applause, Music Applause and as every new device.
This one has all the biometrics that you need, like fingerprint in display fingerprint very fast. Very reliable, i never have a problem with this fingerprint it’s very good and it’s very well, positioned if you grab your device, just put your finger here and it will unlock it. Of course, this device has also a face unlock. It is almost like face id on the iphone, because here on that big notch, we have an ir camera and this face unlock is working perfect, always it’s, working in the dark, it’s working on almost every angle, so in android world. Probably this is the best face. Unlock which i use until today, let’s check it out also, and you can see, it’s open slightly open just like that, and even i was behind the camera. What about the size and in hand feel probably, i will repeat myself, but i think this device is feel perfect in the hand you can see. This is xiaomi mi 11. This is samsung galaxy s21, and this is huawei p40 pro and when you compare this device, this one p40 pro it’s somewhere in the middle and shoots perfect in your hand, because s21 is a smaller device which i like me, 11 is bigger device. My hands are not so big, so it’s, not so comfy for me, but this one is suits in the middle and it’s perfect. In my hand, these curvatures on the back of the device are very good for your in hand feel, for example, when you hold the device, it is a narrow device, it’s not so wider, like me, 11 or the iphones, and the fuel in the hand, is very Good it’s heavy device and feels premium, and also these buttons are very clicky and very comfy, with the red accent on the power button, metal buttons and works very good.
One of complaints which i have with this device is that compared to other flagships, we miss here stereo speakers. Loudspeaker is good. Quality is good, but is not stereo speakers, so we can’t expect a quality like other devices like iphones, like samsung’s and even xiaomi, with their latest flagship and their cooperation with harman kardon. But here we messed up, but we have something which i like. This is so called in display earpiece when you speak, you can just put your ear wherever you want on the screen with a nice, sound quality and enough volume to hear everything from your call. What about the camera guys? This is a difficult question, because don’t get me wrong. Camera is good. Sensors are good. We have here my sensor, 50 megapixel omnidirectional speed up with ois. We have 12 megapixel of periscope telephoto lens again with os on it. We have 5 po optical zoom and of course we have 40 megapixel ultrawide sensor and of course we have this mobile here, which is tof 3d sensor for depth information. We have here that updated ryp sensor and my main problem is with that sensor. It takes very good photos at perfect situations, but most of the time, the photos are not my taste, they are too bluish and also we have different corrections in yellow color, which is because of that r y y b sensor. This is something strange just i think this camera is not in par with other flagships.
S21. This year has very improved camera iphones, as always has very good camera. Just the main sensor and the color corrections is not my taste. What about the video i just don’t like the video which this phone makes it’s not in par with others, s21 makes better. Video even xiaomi makes better video. This guy here is not just making good video. I don’t, like the video all right, let’s check, some camera shots and comparison iphone 12 and s21 Music Music. I think i already say everything about the device, but as a conclusion, this is very good device, with a good camera with perfect battery, with almost everything that you need in 2021, fast wire charging fast wireless charging good display. We have here ir blaster. We have here perfect design. This is one very good device, underrated and paired by google, because lots of google mobile services, but, as you already know, we have now plenty of ways to use google on our huawei phones or in your everyday use. You are already fine without google, for one year, everyone is used to without google that’s it guys.
