HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Performance and Autonomy Test

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Performance and Autonomy Test

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro received the new flagship Kirin 990 processor, a large 4,500 mAh battery and support for 40 W fast charging. We are already preparing a detailed review of the smartphone, but for now we offer to get acquainted with our tests of its performance and autonomy.

Benchmark performance

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro is equipped with the Kirin 990 chipset, made according to the 7-nm process technology. It consists of two powerful Cortex-A76 cores with a frequency of 2.86 GHz, four Cortex-A76 with 2.09 GHz and four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 operating at 1.86 GHz. The 16-core Mali-G76 video accelerator is responsible for the graphics.

In the AnTuTu benchmark (version 8.1), the smartphone scored 470,715 points. The result is comparable with other flagships of the second half of 2019.

In the updated Geekbench (version 5.0.2), our sample HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro gave 776 points in a single-core test and 2910 in a multi-core one. And again, the results are comparable to other flagships on the Snapdragon 855 Plus – the overclocked version of the Snapdragon 855.

In PC Mark and 3D Mark, the smartphone also gave the expectedly high performance.

Gaming performance

As usual, the numbers from the benchmarks do not always reflect the actual operation of the device. Therefore, we tested the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro in PUBG Mobile and World of Tanks Blitz. In both games, the maximum available graphics settings were set.

During the game in PUBG Mobile we did not notice any freezes or drawdowns of fps. This is also confirmed by the GameBench benchmark. It showed an average of 40 frames per second with a stability of 99%. In addition, the test showed that for an hour of play, the smartphone is discharged by about 12%.

In the case of World of Tanks Blitz, the situation is worse. In complex scenes, a fps drop is noticeable to the eye. GameBench recorded that the game starts at 60 fps, but often this value drops to 30 or even 10 frames per second. In addition, the "tanks" discharge the smartphone faster – about 16% per hour. We assume that there is a problem with optimizing a specific game.

Autonomy

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro has a 4,500 mAh battery – the most capacious among all the flagships of the company.

Benchmark PC Mark calculated that on a single charge the smartphone is able to work for 20 hours. We have tested this in practice.

We launched looped video playback in the MX player, turning on airplane mode and setting the brightness to 50%. In the screenshots above, you can evaluate the dynamics of the discharge of the device. The test began at 11:31 with a 100% charge and at 12:02 the next day the charge level was 2%. In other words, in this mode, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro worked for a little more than a day – an impressive result.

We also tested fast charging with a 40W adapter. From 2% to 100%, the smartphone was charged in 67 minutes. The graph shows that a noticeable slowdown began after 90%.
