Huawei P30 Pro Camera Review: The one you’ll reach for

The Huawei P30 Pro made a big splash earlier this Spring with its incredibly cool camera setup. It has quad cameras on the back and it can do some pretty incredible things with the zoom capabilities. Last month, XDA TV’s Daniel Marchena shared his first impressions of the P30 Pro. Now he’s back with a full camera review.

Daniel talks about how he has a lot of phones with great cameras, such as the Pixel 3 and Galaxy S10. But time after time, he chooses the Huawei P30 Pro when he needs to snap a photo. Having the best camera hardware for a variety of situations (wide-angle, zoom, portrait, etc) is hard to beat. In fact, the camera is enough to make him reach for the P30 Pro over all his other phones. As someone who owns a lot of phones, that’s a glowing review. Watch Danie’s full 20-minute camera review below!
