AFAIK that's not just the N10 and the M30 that lack innovation or interesting changes, but like every single phone released this year.

The rest of the M30 series improvements seem to me very very... boring. Faster charging, everyone's doing that now. How long until 1kW wireless charging lol. The SoC is just Huawei's Exynos 9825 with minimal improvements vs the K980.

5x hybrid zoom is still 3x optical + cropping. Doesn't matter if it's "better than the others". It's still misleading.

I really dont care about this google nonsense anyway.. I dont use YouTube that often and i can download what apps i use from their store also.. Mneeeh.
Anyway you could install the play store yourself if you really want to

I know this should be about the new Mate, but I just can't help it:
Please tell us more about the innovation Apple is doing with it's charging standards. Or the camera department. Or even design, because their latest product is ugly as hell ...
There may not be a lot of specific innovation on this particular device, but Huawei is actually pushing the boundaries, constantly, and I like and respect that.
Meanwhile Apple has 0 respect for its customers and just keeps it's cattle coming back with it's restrictive ecosystem.

Anonymous, 19 Sep 2019You can download themYou can't. They don't work without GMS, which you cannot install because of the locked bootloader.
And even if you can, Google, Facebook, Twitter can run a device detection and block it from accessing servers...

Almost every hardware on Mate 30 are more advance than any phone to date, period. In one phone, it got two large camera sensor, 27w wireless charging, 40w Supercharge out of the box, newest SOC, etc. And about the zoom part, no matter if they call it hybrid (3x optical + 40mp + AI cropping) or anything, its 5x zoom is far better quality than the rest of 5x digital zoom on others, thats a fact.

And i cant wait for the comparison between Mate 30, Note 10, Iphone 11, Pixel 4 reviews when they came out. The way i see it, bad impression from you because this brand is Huawei, not Samsung. I can say exactly the same about S10 & Note 10 if i wanted to, no innovation.

Did you hear this Sony - 4.500mah b... moreObviously it needs more battery due to all the crap inside that requires to be powered on. 4500 doesn't mean you will get one third of the battery life compared to Xperia 5. This might last long as Xperia 5 even with bigger battery.

Still 2D fingerprint scanner, No WiFi 6, only 1080p on selfie camera with no PDAF and 1080p screen and 8GB RAM don't worth 1200 euros

Well, cameras actually makes sense.
18mm so no distortion (hopefully)
27mm which is almost 28mm
81mm which is almost 85mm

My main concern is the compatibility of certain apps.
For example. Will it be able to play Pokemon GO? Even though I don't play the game myself.
