In all essence, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro share the exact same design. So you have a fancy AMOLED display up front with teardrop notches and a glass back.
So how do you differentiate between the two models?
Since the P30 has a triple camera setup, the flash and other sensors lie right below the camera housing. On the other hand, the larger P30 Pro comes with a quad camera setup. This includes a unique looking periscope camera in place of the third sensor in the camera housing. Then there’s an additional ToF camera alongside flash and other sensors on the right.
Of course, there’s a big difference in the form factor too. The Huawei P30 is not only smaller, all thanks to its 6.1-inch display (vs ~6.5-inch on the P30 Pro), it is also significantly lightweight. There’s nearly a difference of 30 grams between the two models, and that’s quite a lot in everyday usage.
Further, the Huawei P30 comes with a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack, which its powerful sibling lacks.
As for durability, Huawei P30 is just IP53 certified as opposed to P30 Pro’s IP68 rating.
Huawei P30 vs P30 Pro: Cameras
There’s no doubt that the P30 Pro has a better camera setup than the P30. While the P30 model is no slouch with a powerful triple camera setup, the Pro version takes things up a notch with better features and quad cameras. Here’s a quick look at the differences in their cameras.
P30 vs P30 Pro
- Triple Cameras vs Quad Cameras
- Primary Lens Aperture: f/1.8 vs f/1.6 (lower is better)
- No ToF vs dedicated ToF sensor (fourth sensor)
- ISO: 204800 vs 409600
- 3X Optical Zoom vs 5X Optical Zoom
- 5X Hybrid Zoom vs 10X Hybrid Zoom
- 30X Digital Zoom vs 50X Digital Zoom
Huawei P30 vs P30 Pro: Battery
The thing that makes P30 Pro heavier gives it an edge here. The larger model has a larger battery too: 4200mAh vs 3650mAh on the P30. Both feature 40W Huawei Super Charge fast charging. However, P30 doesn’t have Wireless Charging, which is really a shame. So, naturally, it doesn’t have reverse Wireless Charging either, which the larger model brags about. Huawei has ensured wireless charging on the Pro model isn’t painfully slow, as it goes up to 15W.
Huawei P30 vs P30 Pro: Pricing
The P30 starts at (₦324171.72) €799, while the P30 Pro starts at (₦405440.15) €999.
For me, that’s a very solid price difference. While the P30 Pro really shines in the camera department, the P30 shouldn’t be a slouch. It should still be one of the better cameras in the market. So, if you can forgive the lack of Wireless Charging support, the smaller model makes a really strong case with its specs. Not to mention that it’s pretty compact and light, making it a more comfortable option for everyday use.
