Huawei P60 Pro Test – a smartphone that comes a little closer to a professional camera

Huawei releases the P60 Pro and continues to improve the photo capabilities of its smartphones. We tell you everything in our test.

We have received the P60 Pro before its release. Huawei pushes the limits of its smartphone when it comes to photography. Discover the latest innovations created by Huawei in our unsponsored test.

Huawei P60 Pro – Design and Ergonomics

Huawei P60 Pro adopts a new design. Its screen size is 6.67 inches. It is slightly curved on the sides and is surrounded by a well uniform black border. The large notch disappears to make way for a small hole.

We are still using a large format smartphone but its dimensions are slightly smaller than those of the Mate 50 Pro. It weighs 200 grams and its dimensions are: 161 x 74.5 x 8.3 mm. These small tweaks make it more pleasant to handle with one hand.

On the back of the camera, it changes shape. It consists of three cameras placed on a rectangular plate. The main sensor is placed in the center in an oversized circle. It overflows from the photo island to give it a more impressive look. The set is very graphic.

The photo module protrudes by 3 mm from the casing, which greatly destabilizes the smartphone when it lies flat. The protection provided in the box corrects the problem.

Huawei offers two models with completely different looks. The first version reproduces the pearly texture of the pearl. It was christened Rococo in reference to the 18th century style. Every smartphone is unique. The P60 Pro does not have the same style. It’s a divisive design. Love it or hate it.

We must admit that our preference goes to the other, more elegant model. The second is more sober, but equally technical. Black hull flash. Huawei has developed a coating that does not distinguish fingerprints at all.

a screen

The P60 Pro’s screen takes on the characteristics of those of Mate 50 Pro. The panel has a size of 6.67 inches with a resolution of 1220 x 2700 pixels. It is based on OLED technology with an adaptive refresh rate. Without LTPO, it only oscillates between 60Hz and 120Hz.

Its brightness level reaches 1000 lumens. Thanks to this, you will have no problem using it outdoors and even in direct sunlight. As you can see in the image below, the screen is perfectly readable even under the scorching sun.

In terms of color, they pull off a little orange for our taste. Adjustments bring white toward cooler shades.

Note that the screen is protected by a layer of Kunlun Glass developed by Huawei to replace Gorilla Glass.

This screen contains a fingerprint reader. theThe canner is placed a little low especially if you have large hands but it is very responsive.


Huawei P60 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor but it still lacks 5G. You only need a 4G connection. The smartphone does not escape US sanctions.

The P60 Pro still benefits from all the power of the Qualcomm processor. This chip is accompanied by 8/12 GB of RAM and 256/512 GB of storage.

The smartphone does not suffer any slowdowns even with 3D video games provided you find the apk files. Huawei smartphones are deprived of the Google Play Store. AppGallery has many apps but games are rather rare. So you will have to search for apk files to play the latest popular titles.

You can enjoy two real headphones. When placed on the edge, it restores a clear and powerful sound.


Huawei P60 Pro hides a 4815 mAh battery under its casing. Its capacity is slightly larger than that of the Mate 50 Pro. This battery gives the P60 Pro an autonomy of 1.5 days or more. The absence of 5G helps save battery. As usual, this duration will vary more or less depending on your usage.

This battery is compatible with 88W fast charging and 50W wireless charging. The smartphone recovers 100% battery in 32 minutes. The block is delivered in the box and Huawei had a good idea to put USB and USB-C connectors on it.

Innovative triple camera

The Huawei P60 Pro has a camera that consists of three cameras. Its configuration is slightly different from that of the Mate 50 Pro we tested recently.

The module combines a 48MP main sensor with adjustable mechanical aperture and OIS, a 13MP wide-angle and a 48MP telephoto lens with 3.5x optical zoom and OIS.

There is no doubt that the P60 Pro can take very beautiful photos day and night. Images contrast with rich, natural colours. The sharpness and level of detail is impressive.

The quality is there whether the sky is white, with very strong light or as the sun sets. P60 Pro is ready for any situation. You have many examples below.

Ultra wide angle and portrait zoom

The ultra-wide angle at the height of the main sensor. Color processing does not vary and manages to maintain an equivalent brightness level. The deformation effect is limited. There is only a sense of suction in the middle and a loss of detail in the corners of the image.

The vertical position is confusing. The cuts are accurate but the level of background blur cannot be adjusted. The device only applies a slight bokeh effect that cannot be modified afterwards. The P60 Pro prefers the natural side of the shot.

The Huawei P60 Pro has 3.5x optical zoom and can digitally zoom up to 100x. In the first case, the sharpness of the shots is impressive. Detail resolution drops with the X10 zoom but still shots are of good quality. Beyond that, we enter the realm of a gadget with blurred contours and a display that is difficult to use.

night shots

The P60 Pro excels in low light conditions and especially at night. Huawei has improved its smartphone’s ability to capture light. The manufacturer gives us some comparison points: X3 compared to P50 Pro, X2.3 compared to Mate 50 Pro, X1.7 compared to iPhone 14 Pro.

Because the demo is better than the numbers, you can see its capabilities in the images below. The smartphone perfectly handles the soft light of the setting sun. The colors are warm and natural. You will notice the subtlety of detail on the stone.

The P60 Pro won’t let you down after dark either. He knows exactly how to manage complex scenes with different static or moving light sources.

The smartphone manages to faithfully reproduce what you see while suppressing noise and maintaining a good level of detail. Last surprise, you can use Zoom with Night mode.

Mechanical aperture image sensor

To go beyond the automatic mode, the P60 Pro has an aperture mode. The smartphone has a mechanical opening system like real cameras. You can adjust the aperture from F1.4 to F4 depending on the scenarios.

You should know that the lower the number, the larger the aperture. If the aperture is large, the device will capture a lot of light. Not only does the aperture affect the brightness, but also the sharpness of the images or the depth effect.

The F1.4 aperture produces more contrast and less noise in low-light photos. Set to an aperture of F2.0, the smartphone displays a higher level of detail and increased resolution in daytime photos. The F4.0 aperture, for example, will make the group photo sharper and clearer with greater depth of field.

The images below were taken with an aperture of between F1.4-F2 and F2.8-F4.

Aperture ranges from F0.95 to F16

This mechanical opening system is paired with a virtual opening system that goes even further. It oscillates between F0.95 and F16. It has a total of 18 opening levels. If you are not satisfied with the result, you can adjust the aperture afterwards.

A more closed diaphragm means more downtime. If you switch to F4.0, you will therefore have to remain motionless for a few seconds so as not to end up with a blurred image. Sometimes it is a bit long.

Huawei has equipped its main sensor with a multi-axis optical image stabilizer. They are placed parallel to the lens to increase efficiency. Thanks to that, you don’t have to stay frozen like that in order to succeed in your hunt.

This mode may seem complicated but Huawei has simplified the procedure to use it. Simply switch to aperture mode and choose manual mode and degree of aperture. You will see the result immediately. It allows you to face all situations and be more creative.

What do we believe

Without 5G and the Google Play Store, the Huawei P60 Pro is still punishing compared to the competition. US sanctions restrict the development of the technical sheet compared to the Mate 60 Pro.

It makes up for its limitations with other strengths, particularly in terms of photography. Huawei continues to innovate in this field and once again proves its mastery of this subject.

The main camera of the Huawei P60 Pro with a mechanical aperture system brings it closer to a professional camera. It is an excellent smartphone for shooting during the day and especially at night. Huawei has improved image processing. Viewing shots in low light is impressive.

P60 Pro It ranks among the best smartphones for taking pictures in 2023.

Photo capabilities aside, the Huawei P60 Pro remains a good smartphone if you’re not tied to Google and 5G.

As with the Mate 50 Pro, it will be criticized for being a bit pricey without these elements. Huawei P60 Pro 8 / 256Gop is sold at 1199 euros. The 12 / 512GB model is 1399 euros.
