Does it support 5g

I see tons and tons complaining and crying no Google apps.b people for God sake wake up, it takes 5 minutes to resolve then it runs like any other Android with all G services perfectly running... Nothing much to do other than watching simple tutorials!!!

krissy, 09 Feb 2020bootloader? why do you need that for? root? or you want to ... moreFor most of people, it really matters if they could use Google Apps... But not me. I can deal with no Gapps. I've already disabled them one by one, because I don't need them... With the expection of Gmail and YouTube. But again, I have better alternative apps for them.
For Gmail, I sign-in inside my favourite web browser, Opera.
For YouTube, I use Videoder. Not only it can play YouTube's videos, it can even download them.

But the "Bootloader CAN'T be unlocked" problem is the reason I won't go for any Huawei phone.
There are tons of interesting apps, tricks, features and MODs that require Root access.
You know, since I started using Viper4Android (a famous root-requiring sound equalizer) I really can't go back and use JetAudio's and PowerAmp's equalizers. They are "garbage" compared to Viper4Android. I still remember the first day I used it. I was totally blown out by its jaw-dropping sound quality! It turned my horrible $10 earphone to something like a decent $50 earphone! I spent the whole day re-listening my whole music library, and after playing each of them, I was like "Wow! I have NOT heard these details before! What a crystal clear sound quality! What a deep bass! What a wide soundstage!"

But aside from the Root, not to mention that without unlocking the bootloader, you CAN'T install Custom ROMs on Huawei phones. So after 1-2 years, once they stop officialy supporting your phone, it's done. No updates anymore.
But there are even 2013-2014 phones from Xiaomi, Samsung and OnePlus that still receive Android 9 and 10 Custom ROMs.

You CAN install gapps on Huawei phones.
But you CAN NOT unlock the bootloader. That's the real deal-breaker!

if that device has a GPS module = pretty much any android phone (or USB GPS plugged in), and of course drivers and software that will allow the browser to use location....in that case you can open google maps in a browser and use it just like on an android device; i see no problem here;
the only reason you can not use a desktop PC for maps directions, is that the desktop has no GPS module

not having google play, which Mate30pro has, along with all apps, does not limit you in any way, you will just have to bookmark all websites and use bookmarks instead of apps

If this one have a 3.5mm jack, I will consider it as a replacement for Samsung phone.

Is going this Mate 30 Pro to update to EMUI 11 (Android 11 without GMS) in 2020 ???

turns out it's not my thing.

btw that 'Quote' i posted in my previous comment to what you now refereed to, this came from gsm arena website that i also linked there....unless i got your reply wrong...and i do understand what it does, i even explained it..., unless you think some software puts random pixels somewhere, it's not coincidence, it's math.
Also '48mp cannot gain extra details because of higher res using on a small sensor', let's say the AI recons a straight line, but at some point the line gets blurry on the pic, wouldn't it make sense to assume some pixels and make the line continue until the distance to the object is so extreme that the line can not be seen even with a naked eye?
Well, it won't be that extreme as creating a line where is none, but few pixels here and there and the pic already looks better ;)
And if the software or AI can't assume anything, why does it over sharpening happens at all but not always?

- U should know what youre buying. Funny that one usually test & hands on first on the phone before purchase.

'So, really these 48MP Quad Bayer sensors can’t offer much more detail than a 12MP sensor.'
- U should understand more about it. 48mp cannot gain extra details because of higher res using on a small sensor, with small micron pixel size. Main purpose of Quad Bayer are the pixel-binned res, which 12mp are the optimal, while double up micron pixel size. In your case, u should just stick using 27mp, not 108mp. The higher res are just for bragging rights & 'marketing' tackling. The same goes to Huawei's 40mp.

'ask yourself how an AI can assume something, how do you think face recognition works?'
- older camera dont have any 3d sensor, but still can do face recognition. My point is all that are computational photography, which needed on a smartphone camera because of the hardware limitation. Your Mi Note 10 are no difference, just without using 'AI' naming.
