What's the camera like on this phone compared to iPhone and Samsung please
Heat from me, especially when the mate 40 pro is double the price for not much more! Google services can be obtained on these and there are loads on YouTube to show you how it's done I would rather get the p40 pro for about the same price, with better screen and a upgraded processor giving it a slightly better life expectancy
No no too much for Apple. Huawei grabbed the 20% Apple lost in the first quarter of 2019 and that was it Trump happened.
<3 <3 <3
Huawei was just too much of a competition for samsung and apple hence the ban.

Sorry for the delay responding to this. Yes updates work normally. I couldn't get either of my bank account apps working though forgot to mention that. Not sure how much ability Google will have to kill the services in a future update but I think it would be of no benefit to them to try. They don't not want to work with Huawei its the ridiculous sanctions causing this. I'm sure it'll all be put to bed soon enough especially with huawei being able to become at least a semi competitor with HarmonyOS. The hoops you need to jump through do make it too much of a pain for most people especially considering the prices. I've ended up with a note 20 ultra now and I'm happy with that but the huawei phones are beautifully designed and built. Hopefully this ridiculous urinating contest will be over soon.

Do you get updates on the apps? Does WhatsApp work on the phone? What’s stopping google from pushing an update to play services to block it from working on your huawei? It’s that market dominance of google and Apple that’s forcing end users to have to choose against their preferred brand
Had a chuckle at your settle comment. Yeah most of my work colleagues (who work in IT) are part of the nutter crowd in regards to 5g. Does my head in. I had the Poco f2 pro for a while and the camera is very decent with the macro lens actually being one of the better on phones. It also has the best battery life on a phone I've ever used by far. Its a steal at 300 at the minute. I'm just holding out hope that Google and Huawei are allowed to do business again.
Thanks. I am still on my beloved p20 pro that takes amazing pics which is why I would like to choose between the p30 pro and the p40 pro. I know 5g is still being touted as the one causing COVID 19 by some nutters so a nationwide rollout that works is still sometime away. However, the Xiaomi deals on amazon today make you wonder whether to do the opposite of Oneplus (settle for a xiaomi) but with an average camera?

All the more reason that's it's been thrown around with no Google play on it.
This phone doesn't have Google play services, so the two guys above are 100% incorrect. This is up there with the P40 pro, and is actually the easier device to get Google play services on from what I've heard, hence why I'm genuinely tempted
I'd like to think I know how to use Google so I'd genuinely love to see a link that says this has google play services on it as soon as I switch it on first time..... @MrSwitch you'd know?
So if I buy from here it will have Google play services no downloads required, straight out the box??
Oh no it does'nt .

Without Google apps or services it is worthless, dead end.
The huawei mobile services have been around for quite a while, i had the P9 years ago and that had most of what huawei have improved today. It is also worth noting that in China they do not use Google services at all so they already have millions of users. They are not in the same position as Microsoft and blackberry. True that there is loads more to improve but this should put things into perspective a little ... https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2020/06/15/samsung-and-apple-beaten-by-huawei-in-huge-new-smartphone-surprise/#1683297c58ab
With Mate 40 Pro due in the next 2 months or so buying this now makes no sense unless another O2 Refresh deal for like £300.
You and me both, the cameras 📸 are out of this world. I have a Note 10+ 5g, decent camera, but when I used the Mate 20x 5g camera,I just asked myself why can’t cameras be like this. Only got rid of it as it was a huge screen, now waiting for the prices to settle then attack. Either the Xiaomi mi10 pro or the P40 pro 5g.
I have the Huawei Mate 20 pro, unfortunately, although a brilliant phone I wont be buying another newer generation whilst they don't have Play

Pro tip when buying from any European amazon website. Chat + 2 google transalate tabs (one from translatting their messages and one for translating your response back) ;) not ideal but has done the job for me many times
I actually bought this deal, and then the handset was mis-shipped to Italy, Amazon France wont communicate unless you speak French on Chat so email only, after 2 days i get call back saying its been blocked and they will process a refund, and now i got to wait 7 days for it, nightmare from Amazon France there....

You just side load them yes there is some risk but if you do some research you should be fine
Wow this is insanely good
Cold from me. £900 for a phone without Google services. It is going to drop like a stone in price, and have virtually no resell value in 12 months time unless they get that sorted. Sure some people will live with it and have work around but that will only be early adopters. This will be like an amazon phone. Few people will want to bother with the work around so they have no long term value. Also far too expensive, my P30 was sub £250.

They start selling Mate 30 pro in Russia from 6th of December and that day there will be promotion when you can buy Mate 30 Pro for almost half price + get their new top tablet free of charge. 69900 roubles original price, that day it will drop to 39900 and then every months discount will be reduced and price will grow by 10000. I believe they'll have limited stock and possibly will be available in Moscow and St. Petersburg only.
If someone has friends in Russia and they will be there around 6th of December then you can get this deal for under £400:)

Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G Wondamobile £874 CN version With Google Play Store£803Wonda Mobile Deals
Mate 30 Pro 5G model. 8gb +256gb. Probably the best 5G phone with Integrated 5G modem and best camera .
You can replace it yourself for like a fifth of that amount.
Just to put things into perspective, apple charge $550 to replace the back glass panel so I'm happy to pay anything up to that price to have my gorgeous mate 30 pro screen replaced. 😁
Google Play yeah but not SafetyNet meaning banking apps and Google Pay don't work. Also "for now"? Average user won't go through the headache of dealing with stuff that may or may not break and powerusers won't satisfied to stay in the userland and without bootloader unlock or some exploit you can't get root access.
Price went further down now 663.99
How long until play store works out a banned Huawei phone signature and blocks it

It has integrated 5G modem , will have to bite the bullet.
