The Huawei P30 Pro could be the best-selling smartphone in South Africa

Huawei expects impressive P30 Pro sales in South Africa How the Huawei P30 got me excited for phone photography again
Melba Vasquez | 15 April, 2019, 12:03

The Huawei P30 series was released in Paris, France in March and its arrival in China was highly anticipated.

Huawei has launched its latest P30 series phones in the Kenyan market, with the P30 Pro series retailing at Ksh99, 999 ($1,000), the P30 at Ksh72, 999 ($730), and the P30 Lite at Ksh29, 999 ($300).

The HUAWEI P30 Pro brings a refreshing way to shoot and view videos.

HUAWEI P30 Series is now available for purchase through its showrooms in Doha Festival City, AlNasr Street, AlGharafa, as well as all authorized outlets and sales points. Available in Black and Breathing Crystal, the HUAWEI P30 Series invites Canadians to rewrite the rules of photography.

The Huawei P30 Pro now sits on top of the DxOMark leaderboard with a total score of 112, making its camera the best in the world on a smartphone.

This phone comprises of a 12MP sensor having f/1.5 -2.4 aperture, a 20MP sensor having f/2.6 aperture and a TOF 3D stereo camera.

The SuperZoom Lens takes smartphone zooming capabilities to unprecedented territories. There's a SuperZoom Lens, offering users 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and 50x digital zoom to play with. A prism element in the telephoto camera bends light at a 90-degree angle to maximize focal length while minimizing camera height, without disrupting device design.

I also played around with the "Pro" modes of the camera that weren't as accessible to a photo newbie as they were to me now, and took some... interesting shots. This mode, with its capability to capture dual perspectives, lends itself to capturing large-scale events such as sporting matches and concerts where users can adjust magnification levels as well. The phone packs a battery of 4,100mAh with fast charging and wireless charger support. Unique to the HUAWEI P30 Pro is a HUAWEI ToF Camera that captures depth-of-field information to deliver accurate image segmentation.

The HUAWEI P30 Pro supports a newly-introduced Super Night Mode in shooting videos.

Move up to the Huawei P30 Pro and we're looking at a Leica Quad Camera System. Combined, these processes enable an exposure of 3-8 seconds and produce the most stunning images in low-light settings.

I'd never really considered aspects like symmetry, depth, or color balance in pictures, because previously my benchmark of a good picture was "not so blurry you can't see the subject", but as the Huawei P30 was acting like a crutch, these concepts opened up to me a little more.
