It's amazing how much we actually use our phones in a given day, especially when we watch "videos"! Rate this thread to express how many hours of screen-on time you can get on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro before depleting the battery.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

Well...photos are better definitely, battery doesnt evwn compare, but... Note 10 plus is evenly smooth, because all are "legal" and in place. Meaning that Google is there from the start, on the Mate you kinda have to make a Frankenstein, from pieces. Some things dont work and so on. It has innovation, like Huawei acustomed us with every phone. There are little things that you will miss if you make the switch, I dont know, like for instance swap left or right on a Contact to call or send sms. You know what I mean? :)

For me, SOT destroys all previous Huawei phones I've owned, including the P30P and M20P. 6 hour screen ontime = still 60% left even though it's not set to max/75% brightness...

The new 7nm+ CPU, bigger battery and maybe even Android 10's software optimizations just makes this (at the time of this post!) the most energy efficient and powerful Huawei phone to date.

Your mean send the SMS not working?! I saw a YouTube video that issue you just need to update carrier service from play store.

No no :) , I mean you know, when you are on a contact on samsung, and you can swipe right or left for different actions. Those little trick you wont find on the Mate. For instance I miss all those. The little bubbles with Sms or Wtp notifications that appear over the other apps, and so on.

On the other hand, and sticking to the subject : now I have 1 day 13 hours standby 9:50 h SoT and 13% left.... Unreal :))

Soon as they can get GMS and a legit UK model with 512, I'll be selling my 1tb S10+ for a m30p. Only thing I'll miss is the mst part of Samsung pay.

wow, what applications were you using? did you have GMS installed?
Yes, GMS installed; for me its unusually good, because I know that I use my phones the same way. So this is double the Note10Plus for instance. I used it to watch videos a lot, some Youtube, some G Maps, some phone calls (not very much), I dont remember everything unfortunately, wifi or data on. I will post the detailed usage page as well next time.

Why the hell i've only got 5-6 hours of SoT? Early, it could reach 7-8 hours. I've checked ny batter life using AccuBattery and there's no problem with my battery. Please, help.
