If theis the first big phone of the year 2019, then Huawei wants his just announced to be even better. The ambitions of Huawei are well known. In January, CEO of Huawei's retail client Richard Yu said that the company intends to obtain Samsung's coveted title as the world's largest smartphone brand by the end of 2020 or " ". This desire to supplant Samsung as No. 1 means that the P30 Pro is not some flagship. It is a flagship with a mission.
Our task today is to see how the Huawei P30 Pro faces the Galaxy S1
In addition to the P30 Pro, Huawei also introduced the Huawei P30, which is a bit smaller and has less bells and whistles. And now let's show this comparison on the street. (At the end, a complete specification is displayed.)
Screen Size and Resolution
Mate 30 Pro : 6.47-inch OLED; 2,340 x 1,080 pixels
Galaxy S10 Plus : 6.4-inch OLED; 3.040×1.440 pixels
The screen sizes are quite similar, but it is interesting to point out that the resolutions are not. The P30 Pro has a lower resolution for a larger screen. Thus, the pixel density of the Galaxy S10 Plus is higher – 522 ppi compared to 398 ppi. That would be shocking if the S10 Plus did not immediately have a resolution of 2,280 x 1,080 pixels. It only gets sharper if you change it in attitude and the majority of people do not. If it were you, Samsung has at least the theoretical advantage here.
In-Screen Fingerprint Scanner: Ultrasound vs. Optical
Both the P30 Pro and Galaxy S10 Plus feature in-screen fingerprint readers that allow you to unlock the phone. However, they use other technologies to reach you. Samsung is the first Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone using sound waves (see video for a more detailed explanation).
Huawei now uses a more traditional approach with an optical fingerprint sensor that essentially captures a photo of your finger. Qualcomm says this method is slower and less secure, but I was not lucky enough to activate the S10 or S10 Plus on the first try. That said, other in-screen optical fingerprint scanners were also touch-and-go, so it's uncertain whether the P30 Pro's technology is faster. Everything will become clear after it has been used dozens of times a day.
headphone jack was: How much do you really want?
If using a wired headset is important to you, then the P30 Pro is one step below your expectations. Huawei blessed the normal P30 with the headphone jack, not the Pro variant, claiming the designers wanted to make room for a bigger battery. In contrast, all three Galaxy S10 have the port. We'll see if next year's phones get stuck or follow the trend of chewing the jack.
Four Rear Cameras vs. Three
The Huawei P20 Pro of the past year impressed with three rear cameras on the back. What appeared extravagant and almost exaggerated a year ago is practically the norm in 2019. Samsung's Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus share three cameras on the back and two on the front. Huawei trumps four, one of which is a 3D camera designed to enhance portrait photos.
Huawei P30 Pro :
- 40 megapixel "SuperSpectrum" lens
- 20 megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens
- 8-megapixel 5x optical 5x periscope zoom lens  Time-of-Flight (TOF) distance sensor
- Front camera: 32 megapixels
Galaxy S10 Plus :
- 12-megapixel wide-angle lens
- 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens  12 megapixel telephoto lens with 2x zoom
- Front camera: 10 and 8 megapixels

by Huawei The SuperSpectrum lens refers to his decision to replace the RGB pixels (red, green, blue) with RYB (red, yellow, blue). Green filters make images look darker, Huawei says, so they opted for a brighter yellow pixel. It is an interesting approach, the impact of which we need to keep an eye on throughout the entire spectrum of camera scenarios.
While Huawei claims a closer zoom, you should not be concerned with megapixels. Keep in mind that more is not always better, and how much light actually enters the lens and how photos are processed, the image quality is crucial when all is said and done.
The Camera's Dedicated Night Mode Strikes Back  Where Huawei gets the upper hand is the dedicated night mode for the camera. We used this on previous phones including the Mate 20 and P20 devices. Although processing takes about 5 seconds, the picture you get yourself in an almost pitch-black bar is much clearer, brighter, and more detailed than what the Galaxy S10 Plus does without a standalone night mode feature.
The lack of a special night mode would not deter me from buying the S10 Plus, but if you want those shots, you could drive someone towards P30 phones or towards the unconfirmed pixel 4 if they want to wait until October. Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL also have a separate night mode called a night vision device, and the results are phenomenal.
Price and Date of Sale
The Huawei P30 Pro is now commercially available, but you will not find it in the US, where Huawei. This gives Samsung the advantage that its three Galaxy S10 phones are widely used by carriers. However, the P30 Pro is sold at other locations worldwide.
The price of the Huawei P30 Pro is huge in the Galaxy S10 Plus in the UK. Both Elite phones start at £ 899 for the 128 GB version. In Australia, the Pro 100 AU is $ 100 more than the Galaxy S10 Plus ($ 1,599 compared to $ 1,499). If the P30 Pro was to be sold in the US, the converted price is nearly $ 200 higher than Samsung's.
In any case, the two are more or less equivalent. Our early camera tests favor Huawei's shots in low light and zoom.
