As a Huawei user, I'm thinking about obtaining a P40 Pro+ or Mate 40 Pro+ in the future. I made sure to check by going cold turkey without Google for a week on my P30 Pro; I emerged a bit shaken by lack of some stuff, but it wasn't a total disaster for me.

I don't blame you for needing Google. But I do blame you for bashing Huawei due to your own Google dependency.

I have p40 pro+,i have problem of putting it on

Mich, 01 Jan 2022The P40 Pro + is the most frustrating telephone that you ca... moreyou do know who to really direct your frustrations at ...thank you Mr. Appears you are one of maybe a few having problems with it as many owners in other areas of the world have done some homework and research, and have theirs working with most of the functionality that they require and especially since Huawei have their own expanding app store or people use "petal search" for their apps. Frustration does not equal rubbish especially when there is a lack of understanding involved.

The P40 Pro + is the most frustrating telephone that you can have. The Leica good camera is not worth not been able to install your apps. Is not only a problem about Google, it is impossible to workout a normal day with this telephone. You can't play with it, pay your bills. Do not spens your money on this rubbish phone.

There is a trick to turn off the upscaling and the cropping of the telephoto cameras. However, I am not sure if it works on anything other than my own P30 Pro.

What I do on my P30 Pro is use Pro mode, and crank the format to RAW. In this mode, there is no crop and also no upscaling, as the 5x is now the native 125mm and 8MP in resolution. I believe the P40 Pro/Mate 40 Pro offers the same result, and the P40 Pro+/Mate 40 Pro+ would offer two variants of this: 80mm and 240mm.

One warning: the OIS does not kick in when you use this mode.

Huawei could make their own OS rather than depending on Android if they're willing to invest in app development market

Top model top phone. The best camera in the world.

P30 Pro' telephoto lens don't fare well in backlight conditions nor in low light. P40 Pro+ performs much better here on the other hand. Why? Because it actually has a working auto HDR and uses BM3D NR to more efficiently get rid of noises.

Yes, I know, P30 Pro has some minor edge in resolution between 5x and 10x, but at below 5x P40 Pro+ continuously outperforms P30 Pro thanks to intermediate telephoto lens and more mature image processing. It's simply a better phone for zooming, and by "better" I mean like significantly superiour.

that's not what the youtube reviews have been showing.

Why Lg V60 is not in the comparison? It's value preposition is something to beat in 2020, yet not getting the deserving highlight!!!!

I think that the autofocus failed when gsmarena took the moon photo. On YouTube there is a reliable source which showed slightly better results from the P40 Pro Plus.

Very nice looking

Mikethebike, 14 Jun 2020I have a Mate 30 pro without GMS I have the Google maps ap... moreAll these arguments started due to higher rating given and this rating should be generalized, not with one individuals thought. Same way if you are not using Facebook, Gmail or Google Maps it's fine, it's your choice but billions of people in this world are using them.
Another argument is that you can side loading, yes but how many can do this? So again it's not a general approach.

Many other doing joke about HMS without knowing anything in depth.

So in general it's not worth $1500 phone and the rating given is not what this device deserves. And keep in mind apart from Camera nothing is new and innovative.

You don't even know that almost every shooting mode on a DSLR is automatic or semi-automatic (Tv, Av, Auto, Program, Scenes). You don't even know that most people use these modes, even professional photographers. You don't even know that you have the option to choose RAW, JPEG, TIFF ... You don't even know that, if you choose RAW, for most photos is enough a couple of clicks and sliders adjustments and that you can automate the process.
How much time you think a professional photographers spend editing, if they need a couple of hours for every photo and they shot 1200 photos on the wedding?
Wanna talk about who is born what?

In variety of scenarios, smartphone giving same quality in Auto mode.

Unless you shoot in RAW and put in the hours editing it, you ain't getting a better photo quality out of a Dslr than a smartphone with computational photography.

People using smartphones have already clicked a picture and uploaded it or send it to someone while Dslr junkies are busy cleaning lenses, worried about carrying all that bulk and tuning manual settings to get perfect shot.
The perfect shot has already sailed away before the photographer gets it.
As usual, for professionals only, not for consumers

Do you understand practicality or were you born du*b?

SpiritWolf, 13 Jun 2020For me it's easy. Even if Chinese company spying on me, it ... moreIt's looks like u love china very much. Instead of referring many other things (cause this is not that forum), leme give you latest example of ZOOM a company based in USA but chinese owner and having servers in china obey Chinese Govt order and shuts down one activists account. Other than that it's proven security and data breaching issues with ZOOM.

So it's dangerous to believe in China, their talk and act is always different. I do rather believe in terrorist than China, cause I know that I m talking to terrorist and what they talk and act is same.

I can't dream with open eyes so
