Trying out Huawei P50 Pro, Huawei's flagship in early 2022


 For fans of Huawei smartphones, they may have been waiting for the presence of the flagship which will have the latest camera technology. The good news is, they don't have to wait too long to be able to buy the Huawei P50 Pro officially in the country. Hero in early 2022.

Late last year, Huawei CBG Indonesia has indeed presented the Huawei nova 9, which can provide a flagship smartphone camera experience at a more affordable price range. Even so, there are still some parts that are simplified, such as the absence of optical stabilization and telephoto sensors. Of course, the Huawei P50 Pro will accommodate all these features, along with other extra features.

The Gizmology team had the opportunity to try out the Huawei P50 Pro exclusively in a short time. Appearing quite different from the typical design, this smartphone also runs the HarmonyOS operating system. Here are the first impressions of trying out the Huawei flagship which will be officially present in Indonesia.

Huawei P50 Pro Design

From the rear body, it is very clear that this smartphone has superior camera capabilities. Huawei P50 Pro carries a "Dual-Matrix" camera design, where it looks as if there are two large camera modules. Each to put the camera sensor and other supports. Besides looking premium, it also feels premium.

Even though it has a large screen, holding the Huawei P50 Pro in your hand feels quite comfortable. This is thanks to the relatively thin and light dimensions, plus both the left and right sides are curved. The Cocoa Gold color option looks very shiny—unfortunately it also gets dirty easily aka fingerprints.

Of course, it also makes the entire body of the Huawei P50 Pro feel a little slippery, especially for those who have wet palms. However, for protection, IP68 certification is available which makes it dust and water resistant to a depth of 1.5 meters in 30 minutes. Overall, it really looks luxurious and quite compact, although it gets dirty easily.

Big Screen, Easy to Use UI

Although the dimensions are relatively compact, the dimensions of the Huawei P50 Pro screen look large. This was achieved thanks to the design of the four very slim bezels plus curved 3D glass on both sides, so the profile is not too wide. The OLED panel can also display satisfying colors, and is bright enough for use in direct sunlight.

Being the hero of Huawei, the P50 Pro already runs its own designed operating system, namely HarmonyOS. In fact, it is not much different from the one on the Huawei nova 9 and the previous Huawei series, so there is no need for too much adjustment.

The application icon looks large, while when accessing the control panel, users can directly access other devices that enter the Huawei ecosystem. This is the benefit offered, where when Huawei P50 Pro users also use the Huawei MateBook laptop series or accessories such as the FreeBuds series of wearables, they can be integrated and connected to each other.


The rear camera setup of the Huawei P50 Pro is quite complete. Starting from a 50MP main sensor with OIS, a 40MP BW sensor that serves to provide higher detail, a 64MP periscope sensor with optical magnification up to 3.5 times, plus a 13MP camera sensor at the front—with surprising quality. While the front camera itself is quite unique.

If some of the previous Huawei flagship series used two sensors, on the Huawei P50 Pro, there is only one sensor. In terms of resolution, it's pretty standard at 13MP, but what makes it special is the extra wide viewing angle. So in addition to taking pictures of yourself, you can also take photos with a group or just want to show the background/scenery behind.

Not only that, the Huawei P50 Pro front camera is also equipped with autofocus, so you are free to take photos at various distances. In a short testing time, the effect of the 40MP sensor is very noticeable, which makes the photos really sharp. The dynamic range is also one of the worst, not the best I've ever seen—even the front camera.

The periscope sensor is also suitable for taking photos of distant objects, even though the results are still quite good even when using digital zoom up to 50x. The photo mode is also quite complete, including the professional mode to set various parameters according to your needs and tastes.


In a brief opportunity last week, I haven't been able to really test the performance of the chip used. If you look at the official Huawei Indonesia website, it is stated that the Huawei P50 Pro runs Snapdragon 888. To be sure, when you try the camera, the body does not feel hot. But also when it was connected to a Wi-Fi network only, without a SIM card.

Unfortunately, this device only supports 4G networks even though the chipset should be capable. For current use, it doesn't matter—there is a 5G signal in certain areas, usually with download and upload speeds equivalent to 4G. Although indeed, when it comes to flagship smartphones, of course Gizmo friends want a future-proof device. So that in the future 5G is available, there is no need to change devices.

In addition, keep in mind that Huawei smartphones are not equipped with Google services. If you use Google Keep, often access YouTube and others, of course you can still use the browser. Want app access? This can be done through the GSpace application available on the Huawei AppGallery. You can run Google applications smoothly, with a little note that there is a short ad at the beginning. Can be "solved" via in-app purchase.
