Huawei P60 Pro

Huawei P60 Pro

The P60 Pro from Huawei is solely dedicated to photography and intends to enhance the excellent low-light performance of the previous generation, particularly with regard to the periscope camera. The high-end smartphone also attempts to amaze with its unique appearance. You can determine from this evaluation whether Huawei did a good job with this phone.

The Huawei P60 Pro has always been the Chinese company's top-of-the-line camera smartphone and is a straight replacement for the P50 Pro. It is now the sole model of the P60 series that can be purchased in the Western market, and its price puts it roughly in the center of the P60 series. A subsequent model, the P60 Art, might arrive with an even better camera, a larger battery, and more storage. Still only available in China, the Huawei P60 may be bought there.

In Europe, you may buy the Huawei P60 Pro in either of its storage configurations. For $1,179, and the one with 12/512 GB currently retails for $1,299.The Huawei smartphone is similarly devoid of Google services and 5G as it has been for the last few years. You can determine whether the phone is still worthwhile to purchase from this review.

The Huawei P60 Pro is available in black and rococo pearl outside of Asia. Only the Asian market has purple and green. The color of our test cellphone, called Rococo Pearl, isn't exactly white; rather, it has a pearlescent shine that is particular to each phone. By hand, Huawei dusts the phones with a mineral pearlescent powder; however, the specifics of this process are not provided. This feature is not only attractive to the sight, but it is also a true pleasure to use.

Kunlun glass, which is allegedly 10 times stronger than conventional glass, serves as the display's protective covering. However, the phone also has a top-mounted extra screen protector. As was previously evident on the Honor Magic5 Pro, the screen is curved on all four edges. With the exception of a very little gap between the back and aluminum frame on our test device, the phone is very well made, with no gaps and smooth build.

Due to its IP68 certification, the Huawei P60 Pro is both waterproof and dust-resistant.

High data transfer rates are made possible by the quick USB 3.2 connection (Gen 1) found on the Huawei P60 Pro. This port attained average transfer speeds of 368.49 MB/s during our copying test. You may use it to produce pictures as well; you can either utilize the specific "Desktop Mode" or mirror the screen.

In addition to this, the phone offers NFC, an IR blaster, Bluetooth 5.2, and other features. Unfortunately, it lacks an audio port.

The DLAA Performance Quality mode and the enigmatic Preset G have been added to the Nvidia DLSS 3.1.13 SDK.

The Huawei phone has a built-in NanoMemory card slot that can accommodate up to 256 GB of storage and exFAT. Even though the transfer speeds in our Cross Platform Disk test were a little lower than anticipated, they were nonetheless quick in our copying test.

The P60 Pro still lacks Google services and the related apps, just like it has for the last few years. Many of the apps in Huawei's AppGallery will be recognizable to you, but notable American apps like Meta, Netflix, and Disney are conspicuously absent. Although you can download these applications from other platforms using the Petal search feature, this may seem like a huge nuisance to less tech-savvy folks. A better solution would be GBox, which is simple to install and makes the Play Store usable, giving you the opportunity to access several Google services.

The Galileo and BeiDou GNSS bands are supported for the first time on the Huawei P60 Pro, a smartphone. A precise position may be found rapidly when locating using satellite.

The front-facing camera on the Huawei P60 Pro produces decent selfies with a bokeh effect that can be adjusted to help blur the boundary between the foreground and background.

Even if the smartphone's ultra-wide angle lens only has access to 12 MPix, it is one of the best ones since it delivers wonderful depth of field and high levels of detail. With an aperture of f/2.1, the periscope camera has access to high resolutions in addition to being extremely light-sensitive. Although it includes a 100x digital zoom, the quality isn't the finest. The first noticeable deficiencies appear at 10x zoom, but they are still acceptable for social media.As long as you capture them in 16:9 format, you may shoot video on both the front-facing and primary cameras at a maximum resolution of Ultra HD and 60 frames per second. You can only record in Full HD (60 FPS) if you wish to capture in 21:9. HDR films can be made in all resolutions and formats, however they can only be filmed at a frame rate of 30.The P50 Pro had a quad camera system, while the P60 Pro has one less lens and does not include a monochrome sensor. The phone's primary camera impresses with its balanced images; it doesn't overly oversharpen things, and the images have a wonderful dynamic. Low-light photography is also an option, although it sometimes highlights items too sharply. The automated aperture control of the P60 Pro also automatically adjusts the aperture between f/1.4 and f/4.0. Through the Pro Mode option, which we are already familiar with from the Mate50 Pro, you may manually manage this feature.
