Huawei Mate 30

Huawei’s phone software was always divisive and not beloved among reviewers even before the Google ban. But what is undeniable is that Huawei’s hardware has been the best in class and cutting edge, particularly in flagship systems over the previous two years.

This is less of an view than a reality, as each Huawei flagship of the last two years had a trick or two on its sleeves that had never been seen before and obviously one or two steps above what even Apple and Samsung had.

Indeed, many of the now industry-standard hardware features customers expect from top phones, such as a triple-camera set-up, a capable zoom system, computer night mode photography, or a big 4,000 mAh+ battery, have all been first seen in a Huawei flagship over the previous few years.

For instance, Spring 2018’s P20 Pro was the first handset to deliver a triple-lens system and launched the “night mode” later embraced by Google, Apple, Samsung and everyone else.

In the meantime, the Mate 20 Pro published in the fall of 2018 had a phenomenal battery life thanks to an unprecedented 4,200 cell at the time and the capacity to use the wide-angle lens to capture macro shots (tricks adopted this year by Oppo and OnePlus).

Six months later, the P30 Pro beat Oppo to the punch by implementing a “periscope” zoom lens that could pull off close lossless 10X zoom and 50x digital zoom, as well as a distinctive RYYB image sensor that took drastically more light in dark pitch circumstances than any other device.

And now we’ve got the Mate 30 Pro, and again there’s a definite trick of jawdropping equipment: the capacity to shoot slow motion videos at 7,680 frames per second (fps).

The greater the fps, the better in slow motion videos, as more frames implies that footage can be slowed down without choppy animations. Slow motion videos shot on smartphones have been maxing out at 240fps for many years.

Last year, Samsung made headlines when it provided 960fps slow movement video, and that amount was the smartphone standard set by 2019–up to now, with Huawei’s 7,680.

Relatively speaking, 980fps slow movement slows down by 32x “actual moment;” 7,680fps slows down by 256x reality. Basically, shooting in this mode of 7,680 fps–which Huawei dubs “ultra slow motion “–slows time to the proportions of Hollywood fantasy films.

Recall the moment of the bullet in The Matrix? Or when the X-Men character Quicksilver appeared on the screen, the slow motion scenes? The “ultra” slow movement videos of the Mate 30 Pro look like those. For examples, see the sample videos collected in the following video.

Because the camera captures at such a large framerate, you need excellent lighting–ideally outside under the sun–to look clean for the 720p footage. Notice when lighting suffers a little, like the gym footage at the 16-second mark of the above video, the graphics lose detail and look mushy in general.

So yes, at night this 7,680 mode is useless.Still, it’s remarkable that a mobile camera of consumer grade can capture footage like this.

I’m still in the middle of testing the Mate 30 Pro’s cameras and reviewing the entire device, but my early impression is that the Mate 30 Pro’s cameras fit the previous Mate 20 Pro’s and P30 Pro’s mold:

if you know what you’re doing, the cameras won’t be able to do anything else on the market.

But trial and error will occur, and the iPhone 11 system is still the safer bet to produce the most balanced and usable shot as a dummy point-and-shoot camera. For power users, it’s fundamentally a mobile camera.
