Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Mate 30 runs on an open-source version of the latest Android 10 operating system, with Huawei’s EMUI 10 skin overlaid. There are none of the familiar Google apps usually pre-installed as standard due to the current ban in place from the US government. Taking pictures with the Mate 30 was a pleasure, with the camera providing very sharp snaps and a good colour balance across different lighting conditions. The three different lenses offer strong versatility depending on the type of pictures you like to take.
