Huawei P30 is the original version of the P30 series. The P30 series includes P30, P30 Pro and P30 Lite. This smartphone still puts the camera and performance as a mainstay feature like those of other P30 series members.

This smartphone will be available in Indonesia in the near future. In Indonesia, Huawei P30 can be pre-ordered from April 12-19 2019 both online and offline through the Huawei High-End Experience Shop and e-commerce partner. The price, Huawei P30 is priced at Rp. 9,999 million.

The variant of Huawei P30 that we reviewed this time is 4 / 128GB with the color Breathing Crystal. Here's the review.


The Breathing Crystal color variant provides a color gradation effect on the Huawei P30. When under the reflection of sunlight or lights, the color gradation effect is more visible. The resulting color gradation depends on lighting.

The body of this smartphone uses polycarbonate material wrapped in glass on the back. The selection of this polycarbonate material makes the Huawei P30 look like a mid-sized smartphone, it doesn't look like a premium cellphone. The entire framework uses aluminum material.

When we see and hold the Huawei P30 it looks elegant and sturdy. Like a premium smartphone in general, Huawei P30's quality build quality is quite good.

When held, the Huawei P30 is also quite comfortable and not too heavy with dimensions of 71.36mm x 149.1mm x 7.57mm and weights 165g. Curved corners add comfort when the phone is held.

The screen is 6.1 inches wide, notch waterdrop as a 32 MP selfie camera container and the receiver speaker is plastered on the front of this phone. While the three main cameras are 40MP, 16MP and 8MP resolution, Flash LEDs, Leica sensor posts and the Huawei logo are embedded on the back of the phone.

The right side is found the power button and the volume up and down buttons. While the left side is found only sim card slot. MicroSD slot must be absent from this phone.

The 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C port, speaker and mic holes are on the bottom of the phone. The top of the cellphone only has a mic hole.


Affairs of photos and videos, P30 pinned 3 main cameras with a resolution of 40MP, 16MP and 8MP. The main lens has a resolution of 40 MP with an aperture of f / 1.8.

The secondary lens is supported by a 16 MP ultrawide sensor with an f / 2.2 aperture. While the third lens uses a telephoto sensor measuring 8 MP with an f / 2.4 aperture.

The main camera of Huawei P30 is supported by AI technology. This AI mode can detect photo objects, photo conditions and more.

Huawei P30 camera display is quite simple. Provided photo, portrait, pro, night mode, AR lens, HDR, wide, super macros and more.

Photo mode has 5x optical zoom capabilities and up to 30x digital zoom. When we tried optical zoom mode up to 5x zoom, the resulting photo was not broken and had minimal noise. Conversely, when trying digital zoom up to 30x, the resulting photo breaks and there is a lot of noise.

When we use the P30 main camera, the resulting photo is quite sharp and details with the right color composition. The results of this photo we got when activating AI mode on the main camera.

When not using AI mode, the resulting photo is much brighter and the color composition is not appropriate. In sufficient light conditions, both indoor and outdoor photos are sharper and have no noise. Because AI mode is able to adjust to the surrounding lighting conditions.

In dark and night conditions, the pictures are also quite good. You can also try night mode for better photo quality.
This night mode produces better color composition and detail than ordinary photo mode. You can also use LED Flash when shooting at night.

The bokeh effect produced by portrait mode is also quite natural. A variety of AR enmoji, stickers and attractive filters are available to enhance the photos.

32 MP self-resolution camera with f / 2.0 aperture. This selfie camera can detect faces accurately.

When selfie both in sufficient light conditions and in low light, the results are quite satisfying. You can also use LED Flash when selfie at night. Beuaty mode can soften your face, but the results are still natural.

For videos included video mode, slow-mo and time lapse.

We play PUBG games with that setting or right. When we play graphics that are presented by Huawei P30 it feels very smooth in these settings.

As a result, the PUBG game was able to be completely discharged by Huawei P30. Likewise with two other games capable of running smoothly on the Huawei P30.

We also test audio by watching videos and listening to music. The sound produced is quite clear and round.


In effect, Huawei P30 is supported by a 3650mAh capacity battery with the support of 22.5W fast charging technology. This phone is fully charged under 20% within one and a half hours. When the condition is above 20%, of course the process of charging is faster.
