The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is Huawei’s latest phone, making it expected to compete with the iPhone 12 Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy S20 and Note series. Wrapped in an attractive body, it is equipped with the latest technology and 5G. But when it comes to hard glasses on paper, it suffers a big problem.

Due to US government-imposed restrictions, Huawei’s phones cannot use any Google services, including Gmail, Maps, and Chrome, especially the Google Play Store. Although Huawei has its own App Store (which I’ll come to later), it’s not too close to Google’s competitors and makes it harder to recommend this phone than any of its competitors.

I like the pearly finish on the back of the phone. Look at it from an angle, and it reflects soft orange and light blue tones. Tilt it lightly, and the colors are bright blue and dark blue, and purple. Move it further, and I’m sure you’ll be able to identify many more colors that I can’t even name.

The design is satisfactory and together gives the phone a beautiful and exquisite aesthetic gift. The frosted glass feels very premium, as are the metal edges and the overall solid construction. There’s no question that it feels like a top-end device when I’m holding it in my hand.

The 76.7676-inch display extends to the right of the edge with bright, pin-sharp narrow bezels. It is interestingly combined with the metallic frame. The cur images look vivid; the short text is clear and easy to read on the street in the sun.

The four rear cameras are decent but not outstanding. The main camera performs well and provides accurate, vibrant colors. The 5x optical zoom captures impressively wide shots, and the 10x zoom also has great clarity in the image. The super-wide camera is less impressive, often producing shots with a more forgettable contrast. Sometimes, a noticeable change in white balance is probably due to an oversized synchronous HDR mode.

Video has been a major focus for 40 Seconds Pro, but there is room for improvement. The stability is great, and it could capture smooth footage when I was running at high speeds. Optical zoom comes in handy when shooting different compositions, although I have found that the focus often goes out when shooting at 5x zoom.

Also, the HDR mode in the video is as heavy as the photos. Its processing brought the shadows up and removed the highlights so that the result was somewhat depressing and suffering from strange stability distortions. I particularly noticed that the software struggles to balance a bright sky that revolves around the frame.
