Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Huawei, which took place in March 2020 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2020). This is a new model Huawei P40 Pro — dual 5G-smartphone works on Android 10, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. The manufacturer implemented functionality for working in 5G networks in this model. This means that you can use high-speed mobile Internet (up to 100 Mb/s) without delay with a stable signal. Agree that this should be very useful and we will all quickly get used to this quality of mobile Internet.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Huawei P40 Pro. This is a frameless smartphone, in which the screen almost completely occupies the entire front part of the case. There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a cutout in the form of a small hole for a selfie camera. The case is protected from water and dust, you can safely use your smartphone in a few extreme situations (for example, during rain or in the bathroom, taking a shower). On the front side of the case is located huge OLED-screen with diagonal 6.58″ and with refresh rate 90 Hz. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 4 200 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Huawei P40 Pro got the main camera with multiple modules (smartphones with four cameras): 50 MP Wide + 12 MP Periscope + 40 MP UltraWide + TOF 3D camera. And there is also a front camera that has multiple lenses (smartphones with dual selfie cameras): 32 MP Wide + IR TOF 3D. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is super-camera, which is installed in smartphones. But the frontcamera very good, which will surprise you with its high quality shooting of selfie. It seems that we have already written many times that before buying you need to see a smartphone and hold it in your hands. And speaking about cameras, I would like to repeat the same idea once again — look at the reviews about this model, see examples of photos taken by this smartphone. It often happens that in search of a low price, you buy a model with a camera of tens of megapixels, but the photos and videos will not be of high quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Huawei P40 Pro received 8-core processor HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G. The amount of RAM in it is 8 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 128/256/512 GB. This is again different versions of your choice. The more memory, the more expensive the version of the smartphone. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card Nano Memory up to 256 GB, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Huawei P40 Pro: buy or not to buy?

The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone Huawei P40 Pro we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a huge screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive super quality photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is very powerful with a capacious battery here.

Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $720 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.

If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.
