I don't also understand what you saw in Kirin SoC.

Hopefully the community backlash will be even greater now that famous Youtuber and Notebookcheck have put focus on the topic.

I'm done with s*hiity Samsung devices until they give all regions SD-versions of their phones.

Mislav Zrno, 06 Apr 2020Looks great. I hade Mate 20 Pro and it has the same size battery... moreYes it does. I love it - I'm considering buying it today in Ice White.

Looks great. I hade Mate 20 Pro and it has the same size battery but i didnt have any problems with Mate 20 Pro cuz battery lasted more than a day wich is enough for me. I charge it every night , so i dont see whats the problem with battery size.

What about that bad battery endurance rating?
I'm p-mate30pro user and best thing of Huawei phone is battery life.
yes, just battery. camera isn't that good because RYYB ruin everything from my experience. inconsistent white balance, inconsistent skin tone, warm color shift.

if this test is real. what a point to buy this phone? one best thing is gone now+no official gsm are very disappointed.

I was actually shocked seeing this.
I didn't see that coming.
I never expected the exynos 990 to be better for battery life.

A humiliation to its own SOC. Theres too many reports shown how bad Exynos 990 is. And that video link I gave above? He's an all time Samsung reporter.

Maybe the differents are small than SD base on certain usage pattern.

I still can't trust it fully.

Why would you even bring Apple up when I have expressed my disappointment in certain features of this year's top Android phones, which I otherwise love and depend on. Not going to reply to you anymore because it adds nothing to the discussion, this is my last reply to you.

Nick Tagataka, 04 Apr 2020"how the hell did the P40 pro get that much score for AF" 1. ... moreWe'll see.

Morsel, 03 Apr 2020Are you a Sony Fan ? Nah. You can't be. They are not like this... moreI'm a fan of the best hardware + software. It makes me sad to see the two top dogs - Samsung and Huawei - do kindergarten mistakes in design and implementation.
I want the 10x optical from Huawei, and the 123 degree ultrawide from Samsung.
I want Snapdragon 865 or Kirin 990, no retarded Exynos.
I want S10+ speed and quality of autofocus. Not S20 Ultra can't-decide or P30 Pro's i-will-focus-on-airplane-window or never-on-the-flower-in-foreground.
I want P30 Pro battery

Morsel, 03 Apr 2020Practically it is worse. This is how I got my doubt about DxOM... moreIF you got doubt with DXOMark's AF test, make sure that your "doubt" is well targetted on the DXOMark's test procedure and their provided data. You can't just rebut an established testing procedure with feelings.
Quote from DXOMark regarding P40 Pro's AF:
"Performance is flawless in all conditions, from bright outdoor scenes down to very low light."

Nick Tagataka, 04 Apr 2020"how the hell did the P40 pro get that much score for AF" 1. ... moreI agree, in terms of Huawei's AF. IF the sensor can see more light at night due to its sensor design (RYYB) for example, the better it is in AF accuracy and speed (basically also needs less exposure). Dual pixel AF is great but in lowlight, you can't do AF if the sensor cannot see anything to sample the right AF for the scene.

1. DxOMark's review unit has more refined AF algorithms due to newer camera firmware version.
2. Huawei's AF accuracy has always been excellent regardless of the lighting condition. My P30 focuses on a subject quickly in total darkness, my S10 is on an equal footing with it during the day and in regular low light situations but starts to get quite wonky as lighting gets even worse.

AnonD-925619, 03 Apr 2020I couldn't agree more. The P40 Pro is NOT a premium phone, it... moreCan you stop trolling ffs? The only thing you got right with is the mono speaker bit, other than that what you just said is an absolute BS. Mods blocked you so that they could shut you up, not so that you could make a new account and troll even harder on the forum.
