The Honor P30 Pro Plus is the successor to the immensely popular camera flagship phone P30 Pro which pulverized Google Pixel 3  night-sight mode in every setting it was compared with. The Honor P30 Pro Plus is a jacked-up version of the already formidable pre-cursor that guarantees to hit every spot.

The Honor P30 Pro Plus contains the identical camera module with a slight increase in pixel density and optical image stabilization. The most bewildering feature is the square telephoto lens with a periscope design that is embedded down to the internal hardware. That is impressive considering the minuscule form factor that is functional and fitted inside.

The Honor P30 Pro Plus uses an RYYB super spectrum that incorporates more light into a single photo. The result is a mildly-saturated vibrant photo that is detailed and crisp. The 50x zoom is overkill as far as the practicality is concerned but satisfies those who like to nit-pick on details. The 50x zoom also performs fairly in the night setting, producing AI-enhanced clean colors that seem altered but beautiful to look at. The camera flagship does live up to its name and delivers competently.

Pros / GOOD

  • An OLED FHD+ display
  • Periscope telephoto sensor is capable of 5x optical zoom
  • Automatic exposure adjustment
  • A lasting 4200mAh battery

Cons / BAD

  • A single speaker with mediocre volume output
  • The phone’s body is a fingerprint magnet
  • Cramped earpiece
  • Blatant front camera positioning
  • The rear camera module makes the phone wobbly when placed on a flat surface

Conclusion – Should you Buy or Not?

Overall, ignoring the minor trivial shortcomings, the Honor P30 Pro Plus is a state-of-the-art camera product with all the quirks you can think of. It performs better than the Google Pixel 3’s night sight mode with more accurate and less brightened image production. The AI-powered rear camera module deserves to be in the top-tier of camera flagships that do not disappoint while making night photography more convenient. The hardware is still powered by the Kirin processor that is slightly refined with each newer device The battery and charging attributes include wired, wireless, and reverse wireless charging and the phone is dust and splash-proof.
