DISPLAY Huawei P40 Pro+
Display Type OLED display
Display Technology OLED
Screen Size (Display Size) 6.58" Better than 93 % of phones rated.
Screen Resolution (Display Resolution) 2640 x 1200 pixels Better than 93 % of phones rated.
Display Format Full HD+
Pixel Density 441 ppi Better than 78 % of phones rated.
Colour Depth 16.7 million colours Better than 98 % of phones rated.
Display Refresh Rate 90 Hz
Display Features FullView Display, Quad-Curve Overflow display

The screen size reaches 6.58" inches. With a large display, phone offers a great experience for watching videos, playing games and reading. The best phones today are 6.5'' or more. They have the advantage of a large display area that allows you to see more content than with conventional display sizes. Owing to OLED technology, the display offers a true representation of colours, especially black. The resulting contrast is significantly higher and colours appear more vivid. OLED technology is now part of most smartphones, while LCD displays are becoming a thing of the past in mobile phones. OLED displays also have lower power consumption compared to LCD technology.

Display Resolution of Huawei P40 Pro+ is 2640 x 1200 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px. Another important factor having impact on the final image is display´s pixel density. In case of this model, the value reaches 441 ppi. With pixel density, the higher the value, the sharper the image will be. On average today, the image fineness value is around 350-400 ppi. This will guarantee a sufficiently fine and sharp image for normal use. However, the best phones on the market today are equipped with pixel density of 450 ppi or higher.

The refresh rate is 90 Hz. This value indicates how many times per second display shows new information. Previously, 60 Hz was considered the standard, but today the average frequency for mid-range phones is more like 90 Hz. Modern phones now reach frequencies of around 120 Hz and above. Higher frequencies mean a better user experience when browsing the internet and especially when playing games.

PROCESSOR Huawei P40 Pro+
Processor Type (CPU) Hisilicon Kirin 990 5G
Clock Speed 2.86 GHz Better than 97 % of phones rated.
Processor Core Qty 8-core Better than 99 % of phones rated.
64-bit Architecture Yes Better than 82 % of phones rated.
Graphics System (GPU) Mali-G76 MC16

Huawei P40 Pro+ is supplied with Hisilicon Kirin 990 5G. The number of processor cores is 8. It is a number of cores that plays an important role in evaluating the performance of phone as it is responsible for computing operations. Smartphones already commonly have a core count of around 4 to 8. Multi-core processors can perform better and reduce the processing time of a request to a minimum, which is reflected in the responsiveness of the phone, e.g. in the speed of opening applications. Another important parameter is the processor frequency, which indicates how many instructions the phone can process in one second. Similar to refresh rate, the higher the number, the faster the phone responds. Processor frequency of phone Huawei P40 Pro+ is 2.86 GHz. As standard today, you'll find this value between 1.8 GHz and 2.8 GHz.

The processor also includes the graphics accelerator Mali-G76 MC16.

MEMORY Huawei P40 Pro+
RAM 8 GB Better than 92 % of phones rated.
Internal Memory Size (Storage Capacity) 512 GB Better than 99 % of phones rated.
Supported Flash Memory Cards (Expandable Memory) NM card - up to 256 GB

One of the most important parameters for user´s decision is often internal memory capacity. The larger it is, the more apps, photos, movies and other files your phone can store. This phone has 512 GB storage. Best phones like this one have 256 GB to 1 TB of memory, which is already enough for even the most demanding geeks who use the phone to create videos, take high-resolution photos and play more demanding games. The downside is that with most phones, you'll have to pay extra for that kind of storage capacity. Nowadays, you can usually find one phone model on the market with several different memory sizes. This allows each user to choose what suits them best.

For this model it is possible to increase the storage size by inserting a memory card.

Size of the RAM memory tells us how powerful the phone is. Huawei P40 Pro+ is equipped with 8 GB. Commonly today you will find phones with 6 to 8 GB of RAM. This means that the phone can easily handle normal operation and more demanding applications or games. Higher RAM of 12 GB can be found in best phones on market and are ideal especially for avid gamers. On the other hand, operating memory below 4 GB is more of an issue with lower-end phones and older models. However, even they will find their fans among less demanding users, who don´t want to spend much on buying new phone.

The rear camera of the phone Huawei P40 Pro+ has 5 lenses. Today's modern phones usually have several rear lenses. The most common are macro lens, telephoto lens and wide-angle lens. Each is used to capture the perfect photo - macro lens is designed for close-up photography, telephoto lens, often equipped with an optical zoom, is for photos of objects in distance, and wide-angle lens captures larger areas where you need a wider field of view. The main lens is designed as Wide-angle lens. The resolution of main lens is 50 Megapixel. Nonetheless, resolution alone does not necessarily mean a good photo. Therefore, you should look at other parameters such as lens aperture or pixel size. Pixel size is typically around 0.8-1.8 μm in better mobile phones. The higher the value, the better the quality of the resulting photo should be. In the case of main lens, the pixel size reaches 2.44 μm.

The size of the phone's sensor is also among the parameters that affect quality of the photo. In case of Huawei P40 Pro+, it is 1/1.28". Focus mainly on the value after the slash, where the higher it is, the better photo quality will be. Another important factor is the aperture, which in this case is F/1.9 and determines how much light passes through the sensor. Best phones have an aperture of up to F/1.5. But the most common lenses today are F/1.8 to F/2.2. In this case, the lower the number after the slash, the higher the photo quality. An undeniable advantage is the optical image stabilisation, which makes image significantly more stable without any loss in quality. Cheaper phone models are equipped with electronic stabilisation, which has a negative effect on the resulting image quality. Many people will also benefit from the facial recognition feature. In translation it means the camera can recognise face of person in the frame and automatically focus on it.

Second camera
The second lens of rear camera is designed as Ultra wide-angle lens. The resolution reaches size of 40 Megapixel. In addition, this lens also features lens aperture of F/1.8.

Third camera
The resolution of third lens is then 8 Megapixel. The aperture reaches size of F/4.4.

Fourth camera
Huawei P40 Pro+ also has a fourth lens, which is designed as Telephoto lens. Fourth lenses are usually fitted to the highest quality cameras. The resolution of fourth rear camera reaches 8 Megapixel. Lens aperture value then reaches F/2.4.

Fifth camera
A fifth lens is rather rare in mobile phones.

Front camera
The front camera of Huawei P40 Pro+ is equipped with 2 lenses, with each lens having a different function when taking pictures. The lens is equipped with 32 Megapixel. However, do not forget there are other factors than resolution having impact on the final quality of front camera photos. The main front lens also achieves F/2.2.

The facial recognition feature is just a nice cherry on top.

Second front camera
You won't see a second front lens on most smartphones yet. Having more than one front lens in Huawei P40 Pro+ is thus rather exceptional in world of phones.

The battery size of Huawei P40 Pro+ is 4200 mAh. Nevertheless, battery capacity is not the only factor that affects the phone's battery life. For example - the size of the display, the performance of the processor, the use of data functions and, of course, the intensity of use of phone in general all have a significant impact on battery life. Standard for most smartphones today is a battery capacity of around 4500 to 5000 mAH. Phones with this battery size usually guarantee a phone life of at least 1 day. Older or cheaper smartphone models can then reach battery capacities typically around 2500 mAH and below. With this capacity, you may find that if you use your phone heavily, you may need to recharge your phone during the day.

The standby time for this phone is 380.4 hours and tells us how long the phone lasts on a single charge when you're not actively using it. The phone Huawei P40 Pro+ will last one charge with constant phone calls 2100 minutes. Today, wireless charging feature is popular and appreciated by many users. You don't have to worry about your phone overheating, and it's also practical in that you don't wear out your phone's connector unnecessarily. The fast charging function will also please many people. Owing to fast charging, phone charges up to several times faster, which you will appreciate, for example, on the go.
