P40 Pro Verdict

It is amazing that this smartphone has seven cameras in total. We have seen other high-end devices come with a dual-selfie camera too but it is hard for these to have five cameras stuck at the rear. Above all else as far as Huawei P40 Pro is concerned, we have found excellent features at the display and at the performance department, the phone holds much power too. We did not expect less from a 5G smartphone.
