Huawei P40 Pro - Review

That's exactly the kind of upgrade the Huawei P40 Pro offers over the regular P40 Pro - 10x optical zoom instead of 5x. Huawei P40 Pro presents the very best Huawei has to offer to this day - it packs a large and high-res OLED with 90Hz refresh rate, the most powerful Kirin chip complete with 5G modem, the best of Leica-powered cameras, the fastest charging, plus the ceramic overflow design is the most beautiful one Huawei has done so far.

 

The penta-camera on the back of the P40 Pro is, of course, the star of the show, and it will be the Pro key selling feature.

The Huawei P40 Pro has another major upgrade over the regular Pro version and it is one of the most premium features you can get on a smartphone today.

 

We are talking about the ceramic design - the P40 Pro has a ceramic back and a ceramic frame, which makes it much more scratch resistant than the regular Gorilla Glass and the likes options.

 

Making such panels is a complex and costly process and it does add even more sense to the luxurious price tag of the Pro.

There is no perfect smartphone and the P40 Pro isn't making history as being flawless, just for its 10x optical zoom in a modern smartphone.

 

Huawei's USB-C headphones are also part of the P40 Pro retail package.
