How to Take Video from the Huawei P30 Screen

Appearance and design

It seems era “steal the design from the iPhone X and glue your nameplate” comes to the end. Apple is so far behind life with its smartphones that neither Samsung, nor even Huawei are anymore like iPhone in full.

Of course real “fighters with the system”who didn’t bend under the fashion to sculpt an ugly cutout in the center of the screen, only Samsung and Sony began, but the poles, as you can see, began to move towards each other. Samsung began to sculpt cutouts in the screens, albeit not in the center, and Huawei reduced “bangs” in the screen to the minimum that is needed so that the selfie camera fits normally into the cutout.

But “not be so as not to merge with a damned society”. it’s not about phones, but about informal teenagers. Huawei offers a small drop-shaped cutout. Samsung a hole under the camera right on the screen. So what is more convenient?

It’s hard to say objectively. Closing my eyes, I would say that it is better, like Huawei. But I look at smartphones and understand that the drop-shaped cutout is striking more often than Samsung’s “black hole”, which, moreover, is much easier to hide or beat with wallpaper.

Samsung Galaxy S10e: “hole” seems to be noticeable. And it seems to be not.

The only drawback of the “hole” is that the distance from it to the upper and right borders of the screen is different.

Nevertheless, all the time using the smartphone, I almost did not notice it. It got to the point that if it was necessary to take a selfie, I did not even immediately understand where to look. Although, when you turn on the front camera. in its interface, the camera itself is indicated by a short animation.

Huawei conquers the colors of the case, Samsung. outstanding compactness and an almost imperceptible cutout on the screen

Second moment. Fingerprint’s scanner. Both manufacturers did not sculpt it on the back of the smartphone. Huawei placed the scanner right on the screen, like, say, OnePlus 6T or Xiaomi Mi 9, and Samsung. in the side power button, as until recently only Sony did (and then in the Galaxy A7 2018).

Both options are not a fountain. It feels like Samsung’s scanner still works better (often works correctly) than the Sony Xperia 10 Plus, but still the accuracy is not 100%. Like Huawei. It turns out about the same in accuracy, so it’s better to set up a face lock to help.

As a result, however, it still turns out that the Samsung option works better (faster, fewer actions need to be performed). He took out the phone, pressed the unlock button (in which the scanner). one thing will definitely work. Huawei if the face is not recognized. you need to reach for the area of ​​the screen with the scanner. But in general, this is a subjective moment.

An interesting feature. both smartphones, despite their premium status, retained a 3.5 mm headset jack, but the FM radio was already mowed out of them. Well, about USB-C and not worth talking about. like the NFC module, this is already the standard for smartphones of this level. over, here in both cases, USB 3.1, so that the files are downloaded unusually quickly.

In addition to the fact that Samsung has a slot for a memory card, it even has water resistance! The Huawei is still some kind of “super elite” a feature that is added only to the most expensive models. It’s a pity.

You can get used to any smartphone, but at first impressions Samsung is much more convenient. Because it’s a real compact! With its 5.8-inch screen, it’s the same size as the Samsung Galaxy S7 with 5.1″, or like Xiaomi Redmi 4 / Redmi Go with 5 inches smoothly. Given that all the latest Sony Xperia Compact turned out very “for an amateur”, there is simply no other equally technically cool compact smartphone right now (the remnants of the Xiaomi Mi 6 2017 release do not count).

Screen and interface

Huawei always preferred to spoil the younger versions of the flagships with a lower-quality screen, so both Huawei P20 and Mate 20 received “tolerant” quality IPS matrix instead of the standard for cool OLED / AMOLED smartphones. But now the times have changed, and so much so that in all respects, the Huawei P30 screen is slightly ahead of the Samsung. For the Koreans, this is a shame, because Samsung itself stamps the screens in its court factories, and for an expensive flagship it might not have been small.

As a result, we get that the Huawei screen has slightly higher brightness, slightly better color reproduction.

I measured both smartphones in two modes. each one has a setting for more natural color reproduction and brighter colors. At Samsung these are “natural colors” and “saturated colors,” and at Huawei. “Ordinary” and “bright”.
