Do it, great phone, and the IR blaster is handy when the TV remote has been misplaced by the kids

 



I went the other way, my thoughts are here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=79624087&postcount=10 

The P30 Pro is an excellent phone with a camera that has heaps of potential and you will enjoy some parts of it, and may miss other things from the S10 (possibly things like the headphone jack, better out of camera JPGs, better screen, an actual earpiece, and stereo speakers).

Anyone seen these. There appear to be several companies selling them.

 

 

 

 

Yep, I bought one very similar to this from a chinese website (that rhymes with Earbest) along with a few other cases. I didn't use this one for a few reasons.

 

Firstly while the magnets are quite strong, I suspect the whole thing will fall apart with the impact of a drop which sort of defeats the object of a case in some ways. I'm not prepared to test this hypothesis though, for obvious reasons. 

 

Secondly, I made the mistake of pushing the glass from the rear and it moved slightly. In fact, the glass is only held in with a thin seal around the edge which makes it very easy to push out. Normally of course it is held in place by the phone so this might not be so much of an issue, but again it doesn't really inspire confidence.

 

Thirdly while the all glass rear gives the phone a lot of bling appeal, it's also a huge fingerprint magnet, not to mention any crap that collects inside will be visible. I guess this is an issue with all transparent cases, but in the end I decided I didn't like it.

 

Just my opinion. Other people might disagree :)

Not sure if its related to the update, just got it on the 2degrees model. My galaxy earbud seems to have some problems with volume, on my car the volume is normal, but on the earbuds I need to literally max out the volume and its still not even close to the volume level I had before the update. anyone have any ideas?

Are you using Samsung's Galaxy Buds with the P30 Pro? If so, I encountered a similar-sounding (ha) volume issue after a firmware update to the Galaxy Buds. Fix was to remap the Buds' touch controls to volume via the app, max the volume on the Buds from there, then map the touch controls back to my preferred loadout (ambient sound on/off on the left, Assistant on the right).

 

While there are a few quirks to using Galaxy Buds with Huawei and other not-Samsung brands, they by and large work very well and I'd gladly recommend them for folks interested in True Wireless.

 

Still curious about Huawei's HWA hi-res Bluetooth audio codec.

For anyone impatient for the 153 upgrade, I did the upgrade using a USB stick connected via OTG adapter and it worked a treat.

It is a full wipe option however.

I downloaded 153 from halabtech here:
https://support.halabtech.com/index.php?a=downloads&b=folder&id=45220 

The download includes a Word document with instructions, but basically you dump the folder structure of the dload folder that's in the zip file onto a blank USB stick, then turn on the P30 Pro with Vol Up + Vol Dn + Pwr buttons pressed at the same time. Pretty straight-forward, actually a lot easier than Samsung firmware, however with the S10 and the like there are no-wipe options.

Kind of frustrating that here we are on the 14th version of the Android OS and the firmware/security updates are still such a mess, the fact that people are willing to do a complete wipe of their phone just to get a minor update is telling.

Not sure if it’s google to blame here or the numerous handset manufacturers/ carriers but it needs sorting out once and for all.

I created some Lightroom profiles for processing the P30 Pro's DNGs on the 0.6x, 1x and 5x cameras plus a Selfie profile for the front camera.

In this instance, that phone has a smashed screen and is no longer being used, otherwise the full wipe wouldn't be worth it.
