Fast with amazing photography skills
Our Honor V30 Pro review takes a look at an ultra-fast smartphone with a camera that will impress any photography fan. An affordable price but big on performance, the V30 Pro, also known as the Honor View 30 Pro, is a great smartphone for anyone who wants the best features at a lower price.
The Honor V30 Pro features a large 6.57” FullView LCD Display with FHD+ resolution, which in this case gives you 2,400x 1080 pixels. The display looks superb with good detail and has slim bezels of the phone’s body surrounding it.
The display has the latest look with a dual-camera punch hole in the top left corner. There is a choice of three colours; Ocean Blue, Midnight Black, and Icelandic Frost. The phone weighs 206g, which is impressive considering the tech packed inside.
Power and performance
The octa-core processor in the Honor V30 Pro is a big selling point of this device. The Kirin 990 5G chip delivers ultra-high-speed downloads, streaming, and gaming.

Further features include the option to access your phone’s display, wirelessly, on your PC or laptop. The phone can be connected across your Honor devices for accessing files wherever you are. You can use the camera to gauge your breathing rate and heart rate and connect headphones to the USB-C port.
