Let’s start with the incredible hardware first.
The P40 Pro features Huawei’s Kirin 990 5G Octa-core processor with 8 GB of RAM, running their EMUI 10.1 flavour of Android 10, and with 256 GB of storage.
And that processor flies. Large games like Game of Thrones Beyond The Wall install quickly, and the graphics and interface are fast and sharp.
The game also looks great on the 6.58 inch OLED display with 90 Hz refresh rate. Compared to the P30 Pro, the refresh rate makes a big difference for gaming and video.
This is where the P40 Pro is really outstanding–the Leica cameras offer the best I’ve seen for clarity and HDR, as well as portraits, and overall image size. And that rectangular black camera array stands out in contrast to the silver body on the rear of the phone, with the telephoto lens almost looking like it’s deeper than the phone.
The 50 MP main camera takes truly incredible, rich, sharp photos, with contrast that makes scenes look absolutely fresh. While I did have some mixed results shooting in conditions with very bright skies or light, the camera modes offer a lot of flexibility, and I am a very big fan of Huawei’s Pro camera mode especially.
As well, the P40 Pro also supports 4K video at 60fps on both the front and rear cameras, and the 32 MP selfie camera can deliver some really striking and dramatic shots.
Shooting with the zoom, the results are still not always perfect, especially in darker conditions, but the phone can go from an incredibly wide angle shot, to a tight portrait in second. I also found the super wide angle photos much sharper, clearer, and with better colour than any other wide angle camera out there. So on top of shooting great portraits and scenes, the super wide angle camera is also well worth talking about.
Here’s where things get political. Because of a law in the United States, Huawei has been forced to abandon the Google Play Store and replace it with their own app store.
For major Google users, there are some challenges to leaving the app store behind, but there are only a few major apps that currently don’t exist for Huawei phones. That could change in the future, of course, but right now, there are four main ways to get the apps you want on the Huawei P40 Pro.
First, when you setup the P40 Pro, you can transfer most apps from Android or Apple phones using Phone Clone. You’ll be given a choice which apps you want to move over, and the phone will add them to the P40 Pro.
AppGallery otherwise has a huge list of apps, and new apps are being added all the time. Installation is nearly identical to Play Store, and AppGallery provides updates as you would expect on any Android phone.
Using Petal Search, you can otherwise find a huge variety of apps, even including Google Maps in my tests, and it’s a couple of clicks to install. When there are updates though, you’ll need to update plugins within Petal Search itself. For those wondering, you can find updates under the Me tab, under Downloads, and then Updates.
