Huawei Mate 30 Pro UNBOXING – The Best Phone You CAN’T Buy!

Huawei Mate 30 Pro UNBOXING – The Best Phone You CAN’T Buy!

– What’s up guys? Saf here on SuperSaf TV
and it’s finally here. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro. Now, this has actually been
very difficult to get a hold of. It’s currently only available in China. And that’s because of the
whole political situation between the US and China and the fact that Google Play services are currently not gonna
be available on this. So for now anyway, it’s only going to be available in China. Hopefully soon we’re going
to see it in other markets but I know a lot of you guys wanted see what this is all about. So, let’s go ahead, get it unboxed and see what it has to offer. The packaging is very traditional Huawei. We got the Huawei Mate 30 Pro logo here. And then at the bottom here, it says SuperSensing Cine Camera And of course powered by Leica. Now this is the interesting part, we’ve got some very
interesting cameras on here which of course we will be
checking out in more detail. Right. Presented initially with the phone itself which we’ll put to the side to see what else we get inside the box. And very simple we got a SIM card tool, we got a USB Type A to USB Type C cable, we got some USB Type C earphones and then we got Huawei
40 WATT Supercharger. This is gonna be able to
top up the Mate 30 Pro very, very quickly. Of course there will
also be some paperwork in the official retail version. Which is something I don’t have here. And it would have probably
been in Chinese anyway so it doesn’t really matter. And now let’s get to the device. You can already see this very
interesting gradient design, something that Huawei’s really known for, through this plastic. But let’s take it out of the plastic. And let’s take a closer look. And that looks very, very cool indeed. I’ve got a not for sale sticker on mine. What, I can’t sell this? You know how much money I’d make on Ebay considering that this
only available in China? I’m joking, I’m joking. I’m not gonna sell it. Not for sale sticker is now off. Does that mean I can sell it? I’m joking. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Anyway, so in Huawei’s traditional style, we’ve got this sort of
gradient finish on here. This is called the Space Silver. Sorry I forgot the name. It’s called the Space Silver, there’s also a few other
color options available. As well as some vegan leather options which I’m definitely all for. I know there was a few
people making fun of the fact that they’re vegan leather,
but think about it. It’s better for the environment, it’s not affecting animals
and things like that. I would definitely rock a
vegan leather smartphone if I had one. Of course, this is a glass version which also does look really, really nice. This is IP68 water and dust resistant and we’ve got a metal frame. And then there’s this
circular camera module which seems to be the new trend of 2019. You must have seen the OnePlus
7T that we unboxed yesterday also has this circular camera module. We’ve seen it on some
Motorola phones as well. I personally don’t mind it too much, it’s quite symmetrical which I do like. And there is still of
a bit of a camera bump, which will be covered
up if you do use a case. We’ll come back to the camera for a second let’s have a look at the front now. And on the front we’ve got what is quite an interesting display it’s what Huawei are
calling a Horizon Display. And that’s because we’ve
got 88 degree angle curves on both the left and right hand side. We had seen curves on the Mate 20 Pro, and it’s something that we’ve been seeing on other smartphones as well. But this is quite a deep curve I think the other curve
that’s similar to this is probably on the new Vivo phone that we checked out last week. That’s what they are
calling a Waterfall display ’cause everything kind of just falls over. Looks very cool, I’m not gonna lie. And it also quite nice as well. So when I’m holding this, because the screen just kind
of curves right into the edges, it does feel quite nice. How durable is it gonna be? How is this gonna work in
terms of palm rejection? And will you be able to get a reasonable screen protector for this? These are all questions that
we’re gonna have to answer after I’ve used this for some time. Right, in terms of the size of
the screen it’s 6.53 inches. It is a OLED display. It does look really nice. The resolution isn’t as high
as we’ve seen on other devices. It’s around 2400 by 1176 pixels so it’s slightly higher than full HD but it’s not going towards
that Quad HD Plus resolution that we had on something
like the Mate 20 Pro. Details still look pretty sharp. I’ll have to spend more time with it. But first impressions, this
is a very, very good display. Now because of the Horizon
display, those curves, we pretty much see no bezel
on the left and the right. But we do have this small chin as well as this top bezel with a notch. Now this notch isn’t as big
as the Mate 20 Pro notch, which is quite wide. And that is something I had a
little bit of a problem with because there wasn’t much space
for app notification icons. It would only have space for a very few. But this is smaller compared to that. And we do have the notch
for some specific reasons. We’ve got three separate sensors on here. So of course we have
the front facing camera, this is 32 megapixels
with an f/2.0 aperture. But then we’ve got a 3D depth sensor. So this is gonna be used
for depth information to get portrait selfies. But as well as that, it’s gonna be used for 3D facial unlocks. So the Mate 30 Pro is
not just gonna be using the front facing camera to unlock, it is a lot more secure than that because it is using 3D facial unlock. It’s gonna project like,
thousands of dots onto your face to be able to securely unlock your device. It does work very, very fast. Just check that out. But then we have a third sensor which I’m not sure is that useful and that is a gesture sensor. I can’t even say it. Gesture, gesture. Gesture sensor. Now currently from what I can see you can use the air
gestures on here to either scroll or grab a screenshot. Like that. I don’t know. I don’t mean to be sounding
negative but I honestly think I am never gonna use this and I’m just probably gonna
end up switching it off. So, two sensors do seem quite useful, the third one I’m not too sure about. Now what’s interesting is as
well as the 3D facial unlock, you also have an in-display
fingerprint scanner. So this sits here and once again it does work really, really fast. And I do like the fact that
we’ve got two secure options. Right now let’s move over towards the back and talk about the camera. So we’ve got a quad
camera set up this time. The primary camera is 40 megapixels and it’s the same hardware as
what we’ve got on the P30 Pro. So it’s got an f/1.6 aperture. So instead of using the
traditional red, green and blue which we see on most devices this is actually using RYYB. Red, yellow and blue so this is supposed to
let in a lot more light and help with low light images. The P30 Pro was great for low light images and also the Mate 30 Pro does
have a large sensor sizes. Larger compared to the competition, so once again, larger
sensor size should help with low light images. But then we’ve got what Huawei
is calling a Cine Camera. This is the ultra wide camera,
it’s 40 megapixels this time. So that’s the highest
resolution for an ultra wide that I’ve seen. And also the sensor size is
larger than the competition. It has an f/1.8 aperture. And get this. It can film slow motion at
up to 7680 frames a second. That is absolutely insane. The fact that you can do this on a phone, of course it’s gonna
be a very short burst, but that is, that is insane. That’s just like, I can’t believe that. A smartphone can film
slow motion at that level. I’ll of course be testing it out and letting you know how I get on. But, nevertheless, having
that level of slow motion on a smart phone is very, very impressive. Now Huawei had been emphasizing that this camera is gonna be great for video. Of course we’re gonna be
doing some tests on this. And let me know in the comments
below which SuperSaf Style camera comparison you’d like
me to do against this first. Of course it doesn’t stop there, the third camera is a telephoto camera, it’s eight megapixels
with an f/2.4 aperture. This has Optical Image
Stabilization as well. And it’s gonna give you up
to three times optical zoom and up to five times hybrid zoom. So we’ve not got no
crazy zoom like we’ve got on the P 30 Pro, that seems
something quite exclusive to the P Series. I’ve got the Mate series here. And finally we have a true depth sensor which should help with depth information to get your portraits. I, of course, will have to
test this out a lot more. I’d really put it up
against the competition. So I’ll definitely let
you know how I get along with these cameras. And I’ll be posting lots of samples on my Twitter and on my Instagram. I’m @SUPERSAF on both, so definitely follow me on there to see all of the latest updates. Now let’s take a look around the device. So, we actually have nothing
on the left hand side, and all we have on the right
hand side is a power button. So you might be wondering,
where are the volume buttons? Well, we don’t actually
have any physical buttons for the volume. We just have to tap twice on the edge and then we can change the volume. And you can do this on the left hand side as well as the right hand side. I mean it’s something that
I’m gonna have to get used to. It seems to work okay but
there have been certain times when I’ve tried and it’s not worked. I guess it’s just something
I’m gonna have to spend some more time with. And then if we look on the top, you’ll notice that we have
something that we don’t see on pretty much any other device right now. That is an IR Blaster, which
I’m sure is gonna be useful to a lot of people. We got a single bottom firing speaker so we don’t have stereo sound on here. There is a USB Type C input. No 3.5mm jack. And then we’ve got the SIM card tray. Now this SIM card tray also
has space for a Nano Card. This is gonna allow you to
expand the storage on here by another 256 gigabytes. This is a proprietary
card that Huawei sells so it’s not a usual Micro SD card. But you do get 256 gigabytes
of base storage on here with 8 gigabytes of RAM. Now this is powered by
the Kirin 990 chipset. So that’s the latest from Huawei. And in terms of speed and performance, there’s been lots of
improvements made to the CPU as well as the GPU. And there have also been
improvements made in terms of the overall efficiency. So this should last a good while. You do have a 4500 milliamp
power battery on here. So that is pretty large. And in my experience, Huawei
devices do last pretty long. And of course, along with that, you do have the 40 WATT Supercharger. But this also supports up to
27 WATT wireless charging. That is pretty insane. There’s lots of devices that
don’t support that wired. So 27 WATTS wireless is
very, very impressive. I believe that’s the
fastest in the market. That wireless charger you are
gonna have to buy separately. I’ll be testing that out too. And we’ve also got an improvement in terms of reverse wireless charging. So this is something that
Huawei introduced last year with the Mate 20 Pro. And this is where you can
use your device to charge another device or some headphones
or something wirelessly. In my experience, it was
very, very slow but Huawei have said that it is up
to three times faster compared to last year. Which is definitely a big improvement. And finally let’s talk about the software. So this does come
pre-installed with Android 10 with EMUI 10 on top. Now this is just a base
version of Android 10. We don’t get the Google Play services that we are used to seeing. Hopefully, there’s gonna
be a resolution to that soon and we will be seeing
Google Play services come to the Mate 30 Pro. And then the Mate 30 Pro
will also be available in the European markets. And if it is something you wanna buy then, I’m pretty certain that you
will be able to get a hold of it within the next few months, once this whole political
situation is resolved. If and when it does eventually come out it’s gonna be retailing for 1099 Euros. This is for the 4G version. The 5G version is gonna be
available soon in China. And whenever it does come
here in Europe again, and that is gonna retail
for 100 Euros more. And that is the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. In terms of my first impressions,
I mean, it looks like a very, very promising device. I love the competition that
Huawei brings to the table. So even if you’re not a
fan of Huawei devices, you have to respect the
technology and innovations that they do come out with. Which really pushes all of the industry. So I’m really hoping that
Huawei do manage to sort out this situation with the US and we will have Google
Play services as we used to. And everything will be back to normal. Up until then of course,
if you do wanna import this from China you can go ahead and do so. It will be a little bit
more expensive potentially. And you are gonna have
to side load all of those Google apps if that’s what you want to do. What do you guys think of
the Huawei Mate 30 Pro? Is it a device that you
would go out and buy when it is available? Definitely drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts. And also let me know what photo
coverage you’d like me to do with this going forward. I hope you enjoyed this
video and found it useful. If you did then do hit that
thumbs up button for me. Thanks for watching. This is Saf on SuperSaf TV,
and I’ll see you next time. (upbeat music)


  1. You can add Google Apps to that phone yourself, no need to worry about the American ban, you can download YouTube etc to it if you import it from China.

  2. why you pretend like american or british… just be who you are… I've seen a lot of people at airport ? lots of people came like you from uk or england.. and showing off like they have passport or trying to become british with their stupid accent.

  3. So no stereo speakers, and no stereo recording mic.
    They should leave the expandable storage tray, 128gb ( or even 256gb ) as standard internal storage, is more then enough for most people.

  4. Best phone of the year by far and safer than any American proven spy phone. I can and will buy this whether it launches in Canada or not for sure.

  5. Now the world knows that US can't spy on you through Huawei.
    And China even would not do that for quite a long time too, for so many eyes on Huawei.
    This is the safest phone for sure right now, thanks to US' AD.

  6. hahahaha my note 10+ is faaaaaar better than this 8gigabytes of ram compared to my 12 gigabytes of ram this phone is for those that can't afford the note 10+.. can't wait to see you compare the two🙃

  7. I have the P30 Pro, love it. My wife just got a Note 10. While doing the initial setup on her note 10 it got very very warm. This is one thing I like about the Huawei phones, they don't get warm.
    if I had to choose between a very good high zoom camera like the p30 pro or a wide-angle or slow motion I would take the zoom camera any day because you cannot see things at some distances where if you're close enough you can always do a series of shots or panorama

  8. The curves make it difficult to use. But this is the best one out of all other phones out there. Well done Huawei❤️

  9. Non physical sound buttons are literally the most stupid thing in the world. As someone who has school and doesn't want to take his phone out of his pocket to change music volume I'm disappointed.

  10. I buy Huawei P Smart .and wanted to use external microphone and it's not working.but I try to use some others phones and same microphone is working.then I try to use headset from JBL and I was so shocked that one also not working on Huawei phone.i am so disappointed with Huawei phone

  11. The huawei mate 30 pro 5G also comes with 5g SoC and 5G NSA and another one which I forgot and it is officially the 2nd generation 5g phone

  12. Mate 30 pro – slim bezels, a small notch with sensors and camera.
    Pixel 4 – uneven large bezels for senors and camera.

  13. what a bullshit , can buy it from a Romanian online shop and AliExpress also at the time the video been published on youtube, there is no place….except Korea where you can not ship it to

  14. Phone is very good, but, you is soooo be go back to Indian eat more CURRY.OK please Tell me, how your text the phone ,

  15. You do know vegan leather is plether, which is plastic so you tell me. It's the same as normal leather, if they actually wanted to help the environment they should recycle leather.

  16. Why always these tacky colors? Im looking for a brand to replace my iphone, but i seems to be harder than i thought.
    Does anyone have a recommendation?

    – No notch (pop out camera is ok)
    – Wireless charging
    – Minimalistic design
    – No tacky color or patterns

  17. I think that display looks very nice I'm concerned about things like accidental touches and the overall comfortability holding the phone for prolonged periods of time to say nothing of the prospect of a screen protector and exactly how does one get a case that properly protects the phone

  18. Why The Best Phone You CAN'T Buy ? ?Samsung NOTE 10 Optimus Prime !! Samsung s10 plus best display best clear camera best DESIGN EVER ! ! Huawei best zoom and best night camera ( how much to use? ) very rarely ! too many filters in the software camera ,not realistic not natural !! no recording at 60 fps no hdr 10 + what's best? has everything that phones have in 2018 ! just new aperture diameter and zoom good is no story but not complete !!

  19. Iphone only has a better design and sounds …huawei etc just need to spend a bit more for the designs of icons and interface and make nostalgic sounds then apple is done
