Let's not pretend no company can have these features. The entire camera tech is So y, the screen is LG, an honestly other than that there are no advantageous differentiators. The only reason you dont see these crazy specs on other phones, like these Sony made camera sensor on Xperias, etc, for example, is because of the cost.

Making such a phone would cost a lot, maybe a bit more than Huawei's asking price to break even. So its not economically viable yet for anyone. But then the question: How come huawei are selling it at 1100 euros? Well, its simple. Huawei is, de facto, owned by the Chinese government, and its basically been used for spying (see the server fiasco a year ago).

So it costs nothing for them to sell such a feature rich phone with the latest hardware inside from Sony, LG, etc. at a loss.

However, you have to be an idiot to buy it, sorry. Not only does it not have Google services, it exchanged them to practically Chinese Government made ecosystem, and the second you register they got all your info. Not a private company (like Google), the REPRESSIVE CHINESE GOVERNMENT.

YEAH, indeed, all governments spy, but considering what China does to its citizens, which is BARBARIC, compared to how The US for example behaves, I know who'd I rather be spied by.

Because im not an idiot.

Anonymous, 22 Sep 2019The elephant in the room: No Google support: No Playstore, ... moreU realize u can get any apps apk right? U don’t need google, Apple or Huawei can’t go at it alone. Apple & Samsung slow down ur battery, all phones, govt, apps use spyware. It’s about the 5G, China won this race fair and square and deserve its comeuppance. I’ve been Apple since day 1. Literally switched so many people over, bought 7 iPhones past 5 years, 2 chargers, car chargers, wireless charger, 2 pairs of beats solo 3 wireless headphones, beats pill, Apple Watch and the specs haven’t even compared to what others are offering, made with universal ports/chargers. Albeit Apple is amazing at getting the buck, I’m just sick of settling & giving it to them. Both headphones broke, 3 phone screens decided to no longer power up, endless chargers, and shattered 3 screens, latest from lazyboy arm of chair, meanwhile
others have stopped theirs downstairs, from helicopters & airplanes, rooftops. I’m just over the “conveyer belt consumerism”. If only the P30 had stereo speakers, Samsung wins hands down but didn’t like old Samsung phone and only have the tablet cuz my husband bought it as an Xmas gift which is odd as I asked for a much more expensive vacuum 😕

Check how many phones sell Huawei and then see same for Google. US is dirtier country when it comes to things like this, competitions or being better than you. They want be best on muscle. The good thing is that the world is getting aware of their policy.

Good phone, still not as good as Samsung however

Gsmarena, it would be nice to see 40 megapixel sample images from the 18mm camera because the 18mm camera has a larger sensor than the main camera, so the 40 megapixel images should be better.

Brilliant technology and design, however I do prefer quad HD displays to make the most of the camera.
