Our Huawei P30 (& Pro) tips and tricks guide shows off some of our favourite features and tools, often hidden away in EMUI 9. Here’s how to get started with your shiny new 2019 smartphone, and for more on the P30 handsets, check out my comparisons with the Mate 20 Pro and some more of the best Android mobiles.

After showing you how to activate the apps drawer, we take a look at Emotion UI’s
‘dark mode’, one of the most hyped features in Android Q – and something you can already do on the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro. We also dish out tips on other screen features, such as the Always On Display, Huawei’s Eye Comfort mode and how to hide the notch.

Next up we dive into some customisation and personalisation tricks, to make these flagships phones look just how you want them to. You can even ditch the navigation bar and use the gesture controls instead.

EMUI 9 offers some new features like the Digital Wellbeing tool, which is actually pretty good when used as parental controls. And fan favourites like the Knuckle Mode split screen option are back in action on the P30 – while the Pro model offers up some Reverse Wireless Charging. And last up we cover security, so you can keep your privates private.

Got your own tips for the P30 Pro? Let us know in the comments below!

    I want to know if I should go for P20 pro og P30, because I'm reading mixed things online about which is the better of the two… I care most about photography and battery (no to P30 pro, too big and too expensive)

    I got the P30 Pro over the weekend and a couple things really disappoint me; the single downward firing speaker is pants for a flagship phone and at this price it really should have stereo speakers. Same for the screen; 1080p at 6+ inches with a pentile pixel arrangement is not good enough and I can see the pixels surprisingly easy. Again at this price it should be 1440p.

    I have a p30 pro… I got to say I am a bit underwhelmed with the screen….the screen isn't sharp and the colours look washed out. I have moved from the one plus 3t, and find myself preferring the screen on the 3t over the p30 pro……i feel like I am the only person in the world complaining about it as I can't see anyone else complaining… I dunno if I got a defect model or not.

    With p30 pro you can use it like move with no controller when you project screen on tv. Try example fancy darts and fancy skiing. Of course not perfect but fun and more features the better😃

    Great reviews on this device. I just got my first Huawei phone yesterday and set my finger print key to unlock the phone. But fingerprint image keeps blinking like every 10 seconds. Is it possible to turn off this blinking somehow and continue unlock the phone with fingerprint? Or are there no such option?

    Got my Huawei P30 (not a PRO version) 3 days ago in Prague and noticed one suspicious behavior on the idle phone, even when I'm quite far, and there are no moving objects near the phone – it would display the fingerprint icon on the black, idle screen – ramdomly at intervals of approx 20-30 seconds. While it is not a big deal, I am wondering if anyone else encountered this? It happens regardless of the phone cover (I have a standard, original huawei silicone car one but I tested it without the cover as well). I have also disabled face recognition and all functions related to it without any effect. The phone is great – it's just this thing that makes me wonder if the screen is not too sensitive. Can anyone confirm this behavior?
