Huawei’s P30 Pro has been announced as the best smartphone of 2019 by the European Hardware Association. The smartphone secured the top spot in the Best Smartphone category at the EHA Awards 2019.

In preparation for its fifth annual awards, over 100 experienced editors from Europe’s leading technology publications examined, nominated, and then voted for the best hardware available.

Last year’s award for Best Smartphone went to the Huawei P20 Pro and this year’s top award went to the P30 Pro —continuing the brand’s reputation for excellence in the communications market.

A series of innovative features helped the brand achieve recognition from so many top editors, including their SuperSpectrum Sensor, an extreme optical SuperZoom Lens, and a new Time of Flight (ToF) Camera – as well as HUAWEI’s enhanced optical & AI image stabilization technology.

Between them, the member publications of the European Hardware Association have published more than 250,000 technical articles, going back more than 10 years. It is that knowledge and experience that means the European Hardware Association is uniquely positioned to provide this kind of insight into the market.

Commenting on the win, the European Hardware Association said, “We’re thrilled that Huawei has yet again taken home the European Hardware Association’s Best Smartphone award. The P30 Pro’s well-deserved win celebrates the handsets place as the best smartphone on the market, recognising it as a product that is truly game changing.”
