One big feature is missing from the Huawei P30 Pro

It would make taking pictures so much easier

The Huawei P30 Pro is shaping up to be a fantastic handset, but having used it for a little less than a week now, I’ve found myself wishing it had a feature on board it doesn’t: a dedicated shutter button — and unfortunately that’s not something Huawei can add between now and when the device hits the shelves on April 5.

Seeing as the Huawei P30 Pro — like the Huawei P20 Pro — was designed to be a camera first and foremost, it’s strange Huawei decided against bundling a shutter button on P Series. It’s not because it will make them too thick, as it’s something rival Sony has been doing on its handsets for a while now and they’re just as thin.

As we mentioned in our not-so-traditional review, the Huawei P30 Pro is extremely slippery. That’s not such a big deal on a smaller phone, but the P30 Pro is rather large, which makes trying to hit the on-screen shutter button while steadying the device with two hands, to stop it slipping out of one, something of a challenge.

When holding the phone landscape with two hands, it would make a lot more sense to have a physical shutter button mounted on the frame. That would have two main benefits; the first being that it would minimise the risk of the handset slipping out of one hand, and the second that it’ll let you hold it steadier for a better shot.
