Huawei P40 Review

The Huawei P-series has attracted the attention of consumers with its powerful camera functions and a wide selection of appearances since its launch. Almost all P-series smartphones can surprise smartphone enthusiasts. P40 is no exception. If you want more information about it, keep reading, this review on Huawei P40. 

Nearly Perfect Design

The design of the P40 is perfect. It’s almost the most beautiful phone I’ve ever seen, with its blend of fashion and technology. The Huawei P-series has always had its own unique way of thinking when it comes to color schemes, not only ingenious but also bold. P40 brings new colors of Ice White, Deep Sea Blue, Blush Gold, and Silver Frost in addition to Black, which is taken from the different states of ice, frost, mist and water. 

Using precision craftsmanship, the P40 features these natural colors on the back of the device in a delicate elegant way. The smartphone also continues the exquisite design of the large screen and small body and feels comfortable in the hand. P40 has a four-sided extremely narrow bezel for a more stunning visual experience, smooth operation, and streamlined R corners on all four sides for a softer, more natural and efficient display. The front of the P40 features a 6.1-inch screen with a resolution of 2340×1080, which has an excellent screen display quality, ambient light management, anti-strobe and anti-blue light performance. The visual impact is quite strong. When browsing text and pictures, there will be a three-dimensional visual appearance. 

Compared to its predecessor, the P40 uses magnetic suspension screen sound technology and has no visible earpiece opening. The phone screen is the earpiece. This eliminates the need to worry about clogging and noise after prolonged use, as there are no more openings on the screen.

Improved Camera

The camera has always been the strength of the P-series. As Huawei’s main product in 2020, the P40 is by far one of the best smartphones for taking pictures. The smartphone is equipped with a super-sensing Leica triple camera, including a 50-megapixel super-sensing camera, an 8-megapixel 3x optical zoom camera, and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. The P40’s portrait photography is greatly improved. It has a multi-spectral color temperature sensor + AI algorithm library, which can restore vivid details and real and natural beauty, retain the delicate texture of the skin, and make the picture more three-dimensional through light and shadow shaping. And it can achieve full-scene high-definition portraits with clear backlight and dark light, ensuring that the back is not exposed. The P40 even has photographic capabilities that are not inferior to professional equipment.

Outstanding Performance

While the powerful camera is the biggest strength of the Huawei P-series, it’s not just the camera that makes the P40 appealing. The P40’s performance doesn’t fall short of other top smartphones either. Powered by the Kirin 990 5G chip, the Huawei P40 is faster and generates less heat. With the support of Huawei’s self-developed DaVinci architecture NPU, the AI performance of the P40 is second to none. The large-core + micro-core computing architecture also allows the P40 to balance performance and power consumption. Thanks to Huawei’s strong communication technology, the P40 can bring users better WiFi connection rates and an excellent 5G experience.


The P40 not only has all the advantages of Huawei sim-free phones but also has been upgraded in terms of design, performance, system, and audio and video effects, etc. Whether in terms of software or camera, the Huawei smartphone brings us a great experience. The carefully designed back ID and ultra-narrow bezels make the 6.1-inch screen easy to hold in one hand. In addition, the top-notch imaging technology of P40 also gives users more creative possibilities. It is a pioneer of imaging for smartphones and a model of design. In general, the P40 is indeed a mobile phone worth buying.
