Huawei Mate 50 Pro Review

Embarking upon the realm of Huawei’s latest marvel, the Mate 50 Pro, one is instantly swept away by its avant-garde design, robust construction, and a plethora of features that stand as a testament to the company’s unwavering commitment to innovation. At the forefront of its offerings stands the remarkable 50MP Ultra Aperture XMAGE camera, boasting a 10-size adjustable physical aperture that promises to redefine the parameters of smartphone photography. Yet, even within this cascade of technological prowess, a conspicuous absence of Google Mobile Services (GMS) and 5G support casts an undeniable shadow. While this shortfall doesn’t render the Mate 50 Pro utterly incapacitated, it does drape the user experience in an enigmatic veil, steering it toward a trajectory far removed from the familiarity of conventional Android devices.

Venturing into the realm of usability, the void left by the absence of Google services becomes starkly apparent. For those averse to navigating the labyrinth of workarounds and alternative app repositories like the Aurora Store for their daily digital sustenance, the Mate 50 Pro might regrettably appear as an exotic artifact bereft of practicality. Nevertheless, for those with a penchant for venturing beyond the beaten path, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro emerges as a potential contender in the realm of smartphones – a jewel, perhaps, attainable at an alluring price point.

Nevertheless, the omissions in question cast a dubious shadow over the Mate 50 Pro’s price tag, a hefty KSh 165,000 in Kenya, especially when juxtaposed against the backdrop of rival contenders bedecked with the twin laurels of GMS and 5G compatibility. An avenue to procure this innovative marvel is readily accessible through our website, Phonesstore Kenya. Without further ado, let us embark upon a journey to unravel the manifold treasures of the Mate 50 Pro.


An embodiment of elegance and luxury, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro exudes an air of ultra-premium distinction. It boldly departs from the norm, eschewing the conventional metal and glass façade for a design adorned with distinctive attributes. The enigmatic curvature of the glass that drapes the expansive 6.74-inch display seamlessly integrates with the circular ‘Space Ring,’ a prominent feature that encases the rear cameras. An understated notch crowns the zenith of the screen, accommodating the front camera array without imposing undue intrusion.

The Space Ring, a commanding central circular prominence, harbors a trifecta of rear cameras and a laser autofocus system within its expansive confines. While the Space Ring does bestow the phone with a modest protrusion, its central placement bolsters stability when the device is laid on a flat surface. The package includes a clear bumper case, augmenting both grip and safeguarding the rear exterior.

The power button and volume controls harmoniously grace the right edge, fostering an uncluttered visage on the left flank. The apex hosts an infrared sensor and a microphone, while the nadir is home to a SIM/Nano Memory (NM) card slot, a USB-C port, and a resonating speaker grille. Unlocking the Mate 50 Pro can be accomplished through facial or fingerprint recognition, courtesy of a 3D depth sensing camera nestled within the front camera array and a rapid in-display fingerprint sensor.

Mirroring the trends of contemporary flagship smartphones, the Mate 50 Pro boasts an IP68 rating, a testament to its resistance against dust and water intrusion. The device stands impervious to dust and remains operational even after submersion in still water up to two meters (Silver and Black models) or six meters (Orange variant) for a duration of 30 minutes.


The expansive 6.74-inch OLED panel, bedecked with a resolution of 2616 by 1212 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, emerges as a testament to visual opulence. A vivacious display, embellished with 10-bit color depth (offering a dazzling spectrum of 1.07 billion colors) and HDR10+ support, projects an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 91.4%. This captivating canvas comes alive with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz, affording fluidic transitions and animations. A touch sampling rate of 300Hz complements the narrative, joined by the support for 1440Hz PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) dimming, which quells flicker at diminished screen brightness.

The realm of display configuration bestows an array of options, each conferring a trade-off between image excellence and power consumption. Users may engage with high (2616×1212) or low (1744×808) resolution, or entrust the display with autonomous adaptation (a default setting). Similar treatment extends to the refresh rate, with a choice between high (120Hz), standard (60Hz), or dynamic (default) modes. The scope of adjustments spans an always-on display, with customizable activation methods (tap-to-show, scheduled, or persistent), dynamic or manual brightness calibration, options for Dark and Eye Comfort modes with scheduling, and a palette of color modes (Normal or Vivid) and color temperatures (default, warm, or cool). To distill the essence: the display is a marvel to behold.

Dual speakers manifest as key constituents – the earpiece snug within the screen notch, harmonizing with a bottom-edge counterpart. This symphonic alliance commands an impressive volume, characterized by a symphony of crystalline trebles and, astonishingly, robust bass frequencies. Notably, the 3.5mm audio jack is conspicuously absent, enhancing the device’s sleek and seamless profile.


Eclipsing the horizon of smartphone photography, the Mate 50 Pro casts its spotlight upon a revolutionary variable aperture main camera sensor. A pioneering achievement in mobile photography, the lens endows users with the ability to manually modulate the aperture across a spectrum spanning ten increments, ranging from f/1.4 to f/4.0, within the precincts of the camera app’s pro mode. Alternatively, the system can autonomously ascertain the optimal aperture configuration in auto mode.

Leveraging an aperture closer to f/1.4 ushers in copious luminescence, inducing a natural bokeh phenomenon that embellishes the subject with crystalline focus while the backdrop melts into a soft blur. On the contrary, a wider aperture setting around f/4.0 admits lesser light, resulting in a more comprehensive focus that encompasses both subject and background. While this endeavor resonates as a profound technological feat, practical implementation yields photographs that might seem, paradoxically, normal. The inventive technology, though captivating, ultimately yields results that align with convention.

Mirroring the sentiment of ambivalence, the central 50MP sensor reigns supreme, rendering the Mate 50 Pro as a veritable paragon of photographic prowess. Anchored in Huawei’s esteemed RYYB (red-yellow-yellow-blue) sensor configuration, the sensor’s mosaic incorporates an unconventional duo of yellow pixels instead of the typical green pixel. This departure from the norm amplifies the influx of red and green light, consequently enhancing low-light photography through superior light absorption. The zenith of daylight photography is characterized by exquisite precision and an artful dynamic range, culminating in photographs that emanate an aura


Embarking upon the exploration of the Huawei Mate 50 Pro’s camera capabilities, one unearths a fascinating tapestry of innovation and artistry. At the forefront of this symphony lies the variable aperture main camera sensor, a pioneering feat that claims the title of the first phone to offer a lens with a manually adjustable aperture spanning more than two stops. Intriguingly, the camera app’s pro mode unveils a spectrum of possibilities, inviting users to traverse ten distinct steps within the f/1.4 to f/4.0 aperture range. This voyage yields manifold outcomes – selecting an aperture closer to f/1.4 ushers forth a cascade of light, cultivating shots graced with a natural bokeh aura where the subject basks in focus while the background gracefully dissolves into a gentle blur. Conversely, the realm of f/4.0 beckons, admitting a measured influx of light, thereby drawing the background into sharper prominence.

Yet, amidst the enchantment of this ingenuity, a paradox emerges upon practical application. The imagery captured, alas, mirrors conventionality rather than the enchanting spell of innovation. While engaging in a tactile exploration of the aperture’s metamorphosis on objects in close quarters is undeniably amusing, the resultant photographs relinquish the spectacle of technological novelty, yielding snapshots bereft of transformative wonder.

Blessedly, the flagship 50MP sensor emerges as a true luminary, casting its brilliance across the realm of smartphone photography. This dazzling sensor adopts Huawei’s preferred RYYB (red-yellow-yellow-blue) configuration, orchestrating the replacement of the conventional green pixel with a second yellow counterpart. This audacious gambit amplifies the inflow of red and green light, thus enhancing the sensor’s prowess in low-light conditions. When the sun graces the realm of photography, the Mate 50 Pro’s camera thrives, endowing daylight shots with immaculate precision and an artful dynamic range, delivering photographs steeped in a realism that resonates with the observer. In the twilight of low light, a phenomenon unfolds – a symphony of dynamic range prevails, a testament to exceptional light management that defies the tendency of other devices to overexpose celestial whites or luminary beacons in the shadows. To illuminate the narrative, the need for the camera app’s night mode recedes, allowing the device to conjure captivating nocturnal vistas without external assistance. Embarking on an expedition through the lens, one encounters an ultrawide f/2.2 sensor, poised to seize macro shots with intimacy, while a 64MP, f/3.5 periscope zoom lens, harmonizing with optical image stabilization, emerges with a 3.5x optical zoom capability.

This richly embellished ensemble stands as a testament to the camera’s versatility, rendering it a tool of boundless potential. Comparably adept to formidable contenders like the Vivo X80 Pro and Google Pixel 7 Pro, the Mate 50 Pro punctuates its photographic journey with the ability to capture 4K visuals at up to 60fps, a realm where pristine clarity prevails. Gazing toward the frontal expanse of the device, a 13MP ultrawide angle f/2.4 selfie camera peers back, affording adeptness in the domain of self-portraits and video calls. This spectacle unfolds beside a TOF sensor, heralding the arrival of 3D secure face unlock – a rarity in the realm of Android devices, delivering a security apparatus akin to Apple’s revered Face ID.


Transcending the physical realm, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro’s software narrative unfurls as a captivating odyssey, underscored by the EMUI 13 foundation, rooted in the open source domain of Android. Mysteriously veiled within this narrative lies the chronicle of software longevity, a question left unanswered within the ambit of Huawei’s strategic roadmap. Regrettably, the Mate 50 Pro finds itself estranged from the native embrace of Google apps and services. A poignant consequence of this estrangement arises from the device’s inability to harmonize with Google’s iteration of Android, an amalgamation critical for the seamless integration of these services.

Lamentably, the Google Play Store remains conspicuously absent, prompting users to navigate the labyrinthine corridors of Huawei’s AppGallery app store in pursuit of their digital requisites. Herein lies a paradox – AppGallery, though an oasis of potential, stands tainted by a profusion of full-screen ads, a blemish that feels out of place within the echelons of a device of such premium stature.

For those ensnared within the tapestry of TikTok, Telegram, Snapchat, Tinder, Microsoft Outlook, WeChat, and Deezer, the digital odyssey remains relatively unhindered. Regrettably, the narrative takes a different turn for seekers of WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Netflix, Disney+, Twitter, PayPal, and various other esteemed apps, as these elude the clutches of AppGallery. Though an oasis of functional apps exists, exceptions abound. Google apps, though installable, remain tethered, severed from their lifeblood – Google servers. Uber and Citymapper falter due to their dependence on Google Maps access, while retrieving WhatsApp history from an erstwhile Android phone, ensnared in Google Drive, proves elusive.

A glimmer of hope surfaces in the form of sandbox applications like GBox, bearing the potential to rekindle the fire of Google services. Alas, this avenue bespeaks a convoluted and unreliable expedition, spurring the recommendation to seek solace in another device.

Yet, amidst this labyrinthine landscape, the phone’s software blooms as a captivating tale of aesthetics. Diverging from the standardized Roboto font, the Mate 50 Pro adorns itself with a unique system font. The narrative of customization unfurls, entailing the creation of alluring widgets and the orchestration of expansive home screen folders that grant users swift access to apps sans the need to unfurl these digital sanctuaries. The repertoire of Huawei’s native apps spanning messaging, contacts, weather, and cloud storage resonates with predictability and proficiency.

An enchanting synergy surfaces as the phone’s linkage with Huawei laptops and tablets unfolds, bestowing users with the ease of file sharing and screen mirroring. Yet, this conjuration necessitates an allegiance to Huawei’s ecosystem, a commitment that extends to all facets of one’s digital existence.

Intriguingly, the Mate 50 Pro emerges as a phoenix of defiance, a beacon for those yearning to disentangle from Google’s embrace. Yet, for the collective throngs, it weaves a narrative of limitation, thwarting the natural course of Android’s harmonious design. Huawei’s endeavor is notable, yet it bespeaks a divergent path that proves challenging to endorse.

Huawei’s solution introduces itself through a dual portal – AppGallery and the distinct Petal Search app. This gateway guides users through a labyrinth of possible APK files, beckoning them to a realm of diverse sources for app installation. Updates, while largely automated, may encounter occasional delays, stemming from the interplay between app developers and the Google Play Store. To ensure a seamless flow of updates, the mantle of notification permissions must be draped upon Petal Search’s shoulders.


In summation, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro manifests as a symphony of craftsmanship, encapsulating an extraordinary camera and a narrative of Android software tinged with the hues of exasperation. For those who embark upon a digital voyage untethered from the yearning for Google apps and services, the Mate 50 Pro shines as an illustrious contender in the world of smartphones. However, this journey comes at a cost, one that extends beyond the realm of Google apps. It beckons users to traverse the realm of sideloading, ushering some of the most revered apps into the fold while also relinquishing the dream of harmonious functionality for a few.

Even in the presence of the camera’s splendid artistry, the price to be paid, in the form of a disruptive user experience, dampens the allure. Huawei’s audacious ascent sans Google stands as a testament to its defiance, yet the route carved is laden with thorns that cast shadows upon the device’s journey. Consequently, the choice to embark upon this voyage emerges as a complex conundrum, an enthralling odyssey entangled with the interplay of desire and pragmatism.
