I have recently found myself exploring phones that will give me the best possible photos for my blog and Instagram feed. It’s not always feasible to have my camera with me, and I need to be able to capture the highest quality photos with me on the go—something that I haven’t always felt I was quite able to achieve with my older iPhone. All the photos in this post have been shot on my Huawei P40 Pro besides the ones of the phone itself.
The Huawei P40 Pro is one of the newest phones on the market and by far one of the most impressive smartphone cameras I have ever come across. The brand is committed to being a source of “visionary photography” for its users, and it certainly accomplishes this with a quad-camera system on the phone, each with their own functionality. The back of the phone features a 50 MP Ultra Vision Sensor camera, a 3D Depth Sensing camera, a 40 MP Ultra Wide Cine camera (perfect for taking pictures in low light), and a 12 MP Telephoto camera (with up to 50x SuperZoom), while the front of the phone has a 32 MP Front Camera & Depth Sensor for the highest quality selfies.
The brand boasts that the design of this phone was “inspired by nature.” Not only does the camera capture the most epic photography in any environment, but the phone itself looks beautiful too. It is incredibly sleek with a quad-curve overflow 90 Hz display (read: a seemingly endless screen!) and is water and dust resistant. Some other highlights include a long-lasting battery and ultra-fast speed 5G system. These features all help make this phone a must-have for someone like myself who travels a lot. The highest-quality camera, reliable (to say the least) battery life, and fast functionality have all been so helpful to have while on-the-go.
When making the switch from an Android or iPhone, everyone’s biggest hesitation is typically the availability of apps. While this is the one area where the P40 Pro may not be quite as remarkable as the others (yet), the brand is making great strides to provide users with the exact same experience as its competitors in this regard. The AppGallery is Huawei’s official app distribution platform, and it works much like the App Store or Google Play Store. You can easily download many of your favorite apps here, though the selection is still a bit limited compared to other devices. However, there are a few ways to still get everything you want on this phone. The most popular method is to use Phone Clone to transfer your favorite apps and data from your previous device (this option only works best when transferring from Android devices). You can also install Petal Search from the AppGallery to locate and use over a million apps. You can also use the Petal Search widget directly from your home screen
While it has certainly taken some time to get used to a new phone after so many years of iPhone loyalty, I’ve been so pleased with the P40 Pro so far and am looking forward to seeing more updates from this exciting brand in the future.
