Suggested December 2023 Huawei P30 Pro ‘Moon Mode’ Stirs Controversy (Update: Huawei Responds)

Moon Mode operates on the same principle as other master AI modes, in that it recognizes and optimizes details within an image to help individuals take better photos. It does not in any way replace the image – that would require an unrealistic amount of storage space since AI mode recognizes over 1,300 scenarios. Based on machine learning principles, the camera recognizes a scenario and helps to optimize focus and exposure to enhance the details such as shapes, colors, and highlights/lowlights. This feature can be turned on or off easily while taking a photo. While there is a Moon Mode, the shot can still be taken without AI mode because of the periscope lens.

Although Yue’s photo examples paint a convincing argument that Moon Mode does not work this way, unfortunately, Android Authority was unable to duplicate his results on our own HUAWEI P30 Pro.

The original article on this topic with a few new annotations is below.

How the HUAWEI P30 Pro Moon Mode allegedly works

The official user’s guide for the HUAWEI P30 Pro describes Moon Mode as such: “Moon Mode helps to adequately capture the beauty of the moon along with fine details like moonbeams and shadows.”

Supposedly, this is how the system works:

A user holds the HUAWEI P30 Pro towards the moon and zooms in a bit using pinch-to-zoom on the camera.

The P30 Pro identifies (using AI) that the user is trying to take a photo of the moon, and thus suggests Moon Mode.

The user selects Moon Mode and the camera system then “helps you get a clear shot” using the aforementioned algorithms.

HUAWEI doesn’t go into any specific detail on how the Moon Mode algorithm actually works. From the language in the user’s guide and marketing materials, HUAWEI seems to suggest that the algorithm takes the information in your specific photo and then enhances that specific image by using known information about the face of the moon to clarify, stabilize, and otherwise “fix” the image.

This isn’t the first time HUAWEI as fudged the truth to sell a smartphone.

Now, this might not be a big deal for you. After all, artificial augmentation of photos is happening all the time with features such as beauty modes, panorama shots, and night modes. The fact that this mode is called Moon Mode makes it clear that it is designed to work on the moon and not other objects, which also makes it seem like HUAWEI isn’t doing anything wrong.

HUAWEI P30 Pro Moon Mode: Our take

The thing that’s so bizarre about this Moon Mode controversy is that the HUAWEI P30 Pro camera is already stellar. DxOMark, Android Authority, and many, many other websites all concluded from independent testing that the P30 Pro takes some of the best photos of any smartphone in history.

HUAWEI reacts after it’s caught using DSLR photos for its P30 campaign


If HUAWEI has truly made such an amazing smartphone, why does it use shady marketing tactics to sell us on it? Furthermore, why does it repeatedly do so, even after getting caught?

You will have to make your own decision about how you feel about the ethics behind something like Moon Mode, but one thing is clear: HUAWEI has created a masterpiece of a smartphone and it shouldn’t need to resort to methods like this to sell us on it.

NEXT: If you live in the U.S., you don’t have to import the HUAWEI P30 Pro

Huawei P30 Pro Camera Review: The Best Camera Phone Of 2023?

Huawei P30 Pro, the Chinese phone maker’s newest flagship, has made its much-awaited India debut today at a hefty price of Rs 71,990. It is a powerful smartphone which stacks up well against the myriad of flagships already available in the market. However, being a Huawei P-series smartphone means there’s a primary focus on one aspect and that’s the photography experience. The company always pulls an innovative camera feature from its hat each time and the P30 Pro is no different.

Huawei P30 Pro Camera Specs

Before we dive into my experience with the Huawei P30 Pro’s cameras, let’s take a quick look at the camera specs and features.

The smartphone comes laden with a quad-camera module on the rear, which is a step up from its previous flagships – the P20 Pro or Mate 20 Pro. The camera setup still sports a primary 40MP sensor, but it has been upgraded with the inclusion of RYYB Bayer color filter array to capture 40% more light and bump the maximum ISO rating to 409600. It’s now termed as a SuperSpectrum sensor.

The second sensor on board is a 20MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide angle sensor with over 120-degrees field-of-vision, which is becoming a staple in devices launching these days. And finally, we have the most valuable addition to the lot, an 8MP (f/3.4) periscope/telephoto camera that can capture photos at 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid SuperZoom, and a mind-boggling 50x digital zoom as well.

Finally, there’s a time-of-flight (TOF) sensor on the right of the triple camera setup, below the flash and temperature sensors. This will allow the smartphone to capture more depth information, enhancing the portrait and night shots, plus helping in AR applications in the future. You can read more about the quad-camera module right here, but let’s talk about the camera app in brief.

The native camera app baked into the Huawei P30 Pro is feature-laden and complex. Yes, the camera app is quite intricate and you’ll probably need some time to discover and get used to all the extra features, such as slow-mo, light painting, silky water, super macro, and the Aperture mode. The app is snappy, the shutter speed is great, and there’s a Pro mode on board as well, so camera enthusiasts can be merry!

Note: The camera samples captured with Huawei P30 Pro need to be embraced in all their glory, so we have attached links to full-resolution photos for each category. You’ll be able to check out the details in each picture and form an opinion of your own as well.

Huawei P30 Pro: Daylight Samples




Ultra Wide Angle Samples

The Huawei P30 Pro also includes an ultra wide-angle rear camera, as you might already have read in the specifications above. It has a field-of-view of more than 120-degrees & that can help you capture some breath-taking shots, especially that of a skyline, sunrise, marketplace, or whatever you can possibly imagine.

The samples from both the smartphones can be shared on social media – with the color reproduction of the Galaxy S10 pictures being slightly saturated as compared to the P30 Pro, which produces more detailed shots and you can even read addresses on billboards using samples from the same. Check out the full-res images on Google Drive and don’t forget to zoom in.

Huawei P30 Pro: Zoom in Close!

“If you want to go to the moon; I’ll take you there, baby zoom” sings DNCE frontman Joe Jonas and it’s probably the most ideal way to describe the insane zooming capabilities of the Huawei P30 Pro. This is the first-ever smartphone to carry a periscope camera setup and it brings in tow amazing, never-seen-before zoom capabilities.

The telephoto camera itself has 5x optical zoom capability baked in, which is better than the 3x optical zoom on the P20 Pro, but the prism module inside allows it to capture 10x hybrid zoom pictures. Then there’s the 50x that open more possibilities for smartphone photography, making you want to pull out your phone and check how far you can see – which has been the case with me over the past week.

Here you can see a building with an autumn tree in the first picture, let’s zoom and you would see two birds perched on a branch in the second picture. The third photo focuses upon the bird perched on the top, and you can check out the fourth 50z picture yourself. Get ready to be amazed though!




There’s a common denominator in all these pictures and you will notice it in the camera samples we attach below as well. The 50x zoom picture isn’t the sharpest and detail, of course, is lacking as compared to other zoom samples. This is because the subjects for your 50x zoom pictures are quite far away and even though there’s dual OIS onboard, you’ll still need to keep your hand really stable or use a tripod to get the best result.

I mean, you can see the colors of the bird’s feathers in the photo above and it’s perched really far away, so what more do you need. Here are some more 5x, 10x, and 50x zoom samples to show off this mind-boggling feature of the Huawei P30 Pro:







Though the 50x digital zoom feature is simply astonishing and can help you catch a glimpse of things that may not be visible to the naked eye from that distance, it falters in low light. There’s a ton of noise in the 50x low-light pictures and even though you’ll make out what’s shown in the frame, it won’t truly be usable for sharing on social media or with peers. Here’s an example:




Huawei P30 Pro: Night-time Magic

I bet you have already seen the magic of the 40MP SuperSpectrum sensor in low-light situations on Twitter and a number of publications are drooling over the samples. Well, there’s no point hiding the fact that I’ve been doing the same since I got my hands on Huawei’s latest flagship and you can find some samples to prove the same:




The one thing you would’ve easily noticed in these low-light photos is that all of them are brightly lit. They don’t exactly look the same as the scene that my eyes might have percieved, thanks to the increased intake of light, but it makes the pictures look stunning. And if you think details are lost in the process and the pictures would be soft, well, take a closer peek as that isn’t the case.

I mean, the enhanced state of low-light photography does give more users a longing for similar features in their smartphone but one important question still remains – what if I want to capture my surroundings in its true form instead of having my smartphone’s AI blow up the saturation and light?

Huawei P30 Pro vs Google Pixel 3 XL

In the samples that follow, I am going to show you how the P30 Pro’s cameras perform against the Pixel 3 XL and its impressive Night Sight technology in low-light and totally dark scenarios. Talking about the latter first, well, the photos captured using the default mode on Pixel 3 are an almost accurate representation of what our eyes see.

The Night Sight, however, gathers light and gives you a brighter picture that makes the subject pronounced but with a lot of noise and the details being soft. The color profile is decent, but take a look at the Huawei P30 Pro samples to find these shortcomings to be fixed.




The P30 Pro captures low-light photos with a ton of detail and a color profile that’s slightly cooler than the Pixel via the default ‘Auto’ mode. You don’t need to jump into Night mode to get some amazing results, which you can zoom in and view the intricacies of a subject – be it a figure or architectural marvel. You can check some of our camera samples right here:







As you can see in the pictures attached below, the Huawei P30 Pro hands-down beats the Pixel 3 in auto mode captures. On the other hand, the Night Sight pictures (in the middle) capture a lot more light and the colors look saturated but there’s much noise and details seems to be soft as compared to the P30 Pro. The P30 Pro offers a more accurate shot in low-light conditions in auto-mode – that too with better color reproduction and an ample amount of detail.










What I Call Galaxy (not the S10)

I know the aforementioned comparison already has you captivated, but wait till you see what I’ve been calling the ‘Galaxy’ images. Huawei CEO Richard Yu, at the P30 Pro Paris launch event, showed off a photo of the starry night captured using the default mode on the smartphone at Namibia desert (picture above) and I couldn’t control my excitement.

I feel that the samples, which you can view in full-resolution on Google Drive right here, turned out pretty decent and show off another facet of the low-light capabilities of the device. You can check out some more “Galaxy” camera samples right here:




Night Mode – Do You Even Need it?

We have already got a taste of P30 Pro’s camera prowess in low-light, as well as totally dark scenarios. The smartphone is able to let in more light and capture great photos at night from the default “Auto” mode. The results are comparable to or sometimes better than the ‘Night Sight’ on Pixel 3. I mean, you don’t even need to switch modes on your device to capture such pictures and it takes merely a couple of seconds.

So, the question which now arises is – do you even need the Night Mode on Huawei P30 Pro? It’s a mode that’s included in the camera app (also available on P20 Pro) and takes long-exposure shots, about 7-8 seconds, during which you need to hold the smartphone really stable, to capture brightly-lit and detailed photos in low-light.




From my experience, the auto mode on the Huawei P30 Pro provides exceptionally good low-light pictures with a lot of detail, while the Night Mode bumps up the saturation and takes away some of the details in the process. The pictures captured in Night Mode are quite sharp as well and the final result tends to slightly better and shareable with peers.

Huawei P30 Pro: Selfies & Portraits

We have talked enough about the quad-rear camera module and there’s a 32MP selfie camera aboard the P30 Pro as well. I’m not really a selfie person but the pictures you get from this smartphone are pretty good, considering the high megapixel count, but the details are still slightly soft when you compare it to the Pixel 3 – as we’ve done below.






I’ll say that the color reproduction and skin tones are quite appropriate as well, with the blur around the subject in the background feeling natural and not too overpowering. The portraits captured from the rear camera are even better, with enhanced edge detection & more detail, meaning the TOF camera on board is doing its job well.




Huawei P30 Pro: Video Recording

Huawei has included a myriad of camera features in the P30 Pro and you’ve already seen how each of them perform in real-life, however, video recordings appears to be one such segment where the company has me a little unsatisfied. This over Rs 70,000 smartphone offers you recording support up to 4K (UHD) but solely at 30fps. You have to bump down the resolution to 1080p to get 60fps support, which is a huge shortcoming in my book.

One of the highlights of the P30 Pro obviously is its low-light prowess and it trickles into your video department as well. The low-light videos are pretty decent, especially for yet another hand-held moving vehicle recording, but the quality isn’t particularly good. The samples attached below has life-like color reproduction but the details are really soft for any and all subjects in the frame.

Extra Features

In addition to the traditional video shooting modes, Huawei also introduced some extra video modes with its Kirin 980-powered Mate 20 Pro flagship last year and well, they’re being carried forward with the P30 Pro. I’m really impressed with the edge detection, as well as real-time bokeh, that’s been applied during the ‘AI Background Blur’ mode video sample here:

Another great video shooting mode available on the P30 Pro is AI Color, where the device intelligently singles out a colorful object in the frame and paints everything else in monochrome shades. In the video attached below, you can see that Sharun is colorful & the Beebom office in the background is painted in black and white.

Huawei P30 Pro: Super Macro




The Super Macro mode on the P30 Pro also goes a step further from other smartphone cameras and includes up to 3x digital zoom, making it possible for you to get closer to objects. Though the 3x zoom pictures don’t have as much detail as the standard Super Macro pictures, the detail in the 3x picture is still really appreciable. See those hair on the feet of the spider or the cracks in the Ducati logo. It instantly makes a user go ‘wow’ and jaw drops to the ground when you see pictures like these.

Huawei P30 Pro Camera Review: What More Can You Ask For?

Huawei P30 Pro’s camera capabilities, especially the zooming, AI+ToF-enhanced portraits, and dual-OIS-stabilized videos are something you wouldn’t find on any other smartphone right now. It does have its minor shortcomings here and there, but the overall quality has me stumped and begs me to use the camera more often.

Dxomark: Huawei P40 Pro Has An Excellent Quality Display

The Huawei P40 Pro screen scored a total of 85 points, which allowed it to take fourth place, ahead of the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max (84) and behind the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G (89), OnePlus 8 Pro (88) and Apple iPhone 12 Pro (87). However, in some specs, the display of the Huawei P40 Pro turned out to be better than that of the leaders.

DxOMark stated that readability was largely hindered by the Huawei P40 Pro’s display getting the maximum rating. The screen was not very bright both indoors and outdoors. It got 66 points, while the iPhone 12 Pro got 72 points.

However, the flagship from the Chinese tech giant has been praised for its color performance. In this test, it received 83 points against 75 points for the Apple iPhone 12 Pro. In addition, the display of the Huawei P40 Pro was very smooth, the content in motion looks just fine: 87 points against 81 for the iPhone 12 Pro.

The smartphone has excellent motion blur control and video playback instantly. For the responsiveness of touch controls, the smartphone received 67 points against 61 points for the iPhone 12 Pro. At the same time, the screen shows more artifacts, especially in games.


Color rendering is pleasant and accurate in still images.

Motion rendering is excellent, in particular frame drop performance and control of motion blur.

Luminance level is adapted to night reading (except when BLF is on).


Brightness levels are low indoors and outdoors, except in low-light conditions.

Video performance is disappointing, especially brightness level and gamma management.

Touch accuracy is low on the sides and especially in the bottom corners.

Aliasing is noticeable when gaming.

Huawei Confirms Mate 50 Pro For Europe But Won’t Say When

The Chinese firm says the phone will cost from €1,299 for the silver or black version, or €1,399 for an eye-catching orange version with a vegan leather back.

Strangely, this orange model will also have a hardier glass on its 120Hz 6.7in OLED display than the cheaper versions and will be submersible to 6m rather than 2m. That might be worth €100 to some people, but an already expensive phone without Google apps or services could be a tough sell, hardier glass or not.

In renders the glass looks to have a crosshatch pattern that will surely not be visible to the naked eye. To further sell the extra spend, the orange version has 512GB storage to go with its 8GB RAM, rather than the 8GB/256GB configuration of the cheaper models.

Huawei head of product Andreas Zimmer told media in a briefing that the European version of the Mate 50 Pro is practically identical to the version announced in China earlier in September, except that it won’t have the latter model’s satellite communications abilities.

Just like in China, the European version uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, but with only 4G capabilities – no 5G here thanks to the ongoing US sanctions that have cut Huawei adrift from Google services.

Also, in Europe the phone will run EMUI 13 that’s based Android open source. In China, the phone runs HarmonyOS, a similar but differently branded version of Huawei’s mobile software.

It seems that the regular Mate 50 along with the Mate 50 RS Porsche design edition won’t be making their way West. The whole series is set to go on sale in China on 28 September.

The Mate 50 Pro’s headline feature is its 10-stage adjustable physical aperture main camera that can move between f/1.4 and f/4.0 to capture varying depth of field in photo and video. Huawei said at f/1.4 it is the “industry’s largest aperture”.

The orange model has more hardened glass on the display


It uses a six-blade design to physically alter the aperture of the main 50Mp lens rather than using software to create artificial blur.

Variable aperture cameras are quite rare on phones. Samsung used a two-stage mechanism in 2023’s Galaxy S9 but abandoned it after that. It’s good to see Huawei bringing it back.

I’m excited to test it out. Since Huawei is no longer partnering with Leica on its cameras (fellow Chinese rivals Xiaomi and Vivo now do instead) it has dreamt up XMAGE, its new photography branding for its phones. The Mate 50 Pro is the first with it, and along with the crazy aperture abilities also claims to take photos with true-life colour – a move away from the saturation or beauty modes and smoothing of images on by default in many Android phones’ software.

The phone also returns to a notch design despite 2023’s last Mate, the Mate 40 Pro, opting for a pill-shaped cut out for the selfie camera.

Zimmer said the phone will have an emergency battery mode where the phone will be able to survive on 1% in standby for three hours, or for a 12-minute phone call, which seems like a good peace-of-mind feature.

He also outlined EMUI 13’s privacy features, though these seem very similar to the granular permission controls found on Android 12 and 13.

The silver and black versions


The phone also packs in IP68 water and dust resistance, 3D face unlock, a 13Mp ultrawide and 64Mp telephoto lens to go with its 50Mp main camera, and a 4,700mAh battery with 66W wired and 50W wireless charging, as well as 7.5W reverse wireless charging.

My colleague Dom recently reviewed Huawei’s impressive Mate Xs 2 folding phone but told me he struggled to keep his SIM card in it due to software quirks. It’s not just the no-Google thing; apps you download using Petal Search (sideloaded apps that aren’t hosted Huawei’s official app store AppGallery) don’t auto-update. Instead, you have to re-download new versions of them.

Perhaps we are too intertwined with Google services on these shores, but it’s little barriers to smooth phone-running like this that have me worried. But I will reserve judgement until my SIM is lodged in the Mate 50 Pro, which should be soon.

That said, there’s no UK price or official release confirmed as of today, and at the moment the Mate 50 Pro is only getting two years of software support – far from acceptable on a phone this expensive. But the pricy Pro is coming to Europe at least, and Huawei seems ever committed to its global smartphone strategy despite the lack of Google services that has had Western buyers leave the brand in droves.  

Huawei 8K 5G Tv Plans Leak

Huawei 8K 5G TV plans leak – and Samsung should be worried

Huawei is planning an 8K TV with an integrated 5G connection, insiders claim, aiming to leapfrog the usual smart TV and on-demand media with a high-spec cord-cutting behemoth. The new Huawei TV would mark the expansion of the company’s ecosystem play, which has so far centered predominantly on smaller, portable devices, and could launch as soon as this year.

Huawei’s smartphones, for example, are increasingly well-reviewed. The Huawei P30 Pro, for example, wowed testers with its 5x optical zoom, though US availability has been stymied by ongoing distrust from the American government.

In parallel, Huawei has released a number of laptops, wearables like fitness bands and smart watches, and other devices. In some regions the company has networking hardware too, like a smart mesh router that integrates an AI assistant. This new TV, it’s suggested, would blur a number of such lines.

Huawei’s goal, so the Nikkei reports, is to be the first to market with a 5G TV. It would pack a cutting-edge 8K display, with four times the number of pixels than a 4K set. An embedded modem, meanwhile, would tap into high-speed 5G networks and allow it to stream directly, as well as access other media.

The obvious competitor here is Samsung, the current big name both in TVs and panels for TV-makers. It’s not been slow to look to 8K fo the next phase of growth, as television owners prepare to retire their Full HD sets and shift to the next big thing. That’s despite, at present, there being a dearth of content.

It would be a challenge to more than just Samsung, however. By adopting embedded 5G, Huawei could potentially bypass the traditional network providers. Owners would not be reliant on their home’s cable or DSL broadband to get online, or indeed on satellite services.

That 5G connection could also be shared with other devices, effectively turning the Huawei 8K 5G television into a router in its own right. US carriers currently in the midst of deploying 5G networks have been bullish about the next-generation technology’s potential for a wireline internet replacement. Even with 4G LTE, though, Huawei has explored using mobile networks as alternatives for traditional internet connections.

There are a lot of moving parts here, of course, not all of them under Huawei’s control. High-speed connectivity requires 5G networks first, which are still a relative rarity. Even when an 8K TV is connected, the bulk of content on offer is likely to be 4K at best, or potentially more likely 1080p Full HD.

In combination, it could make the TV a tough sell with a fairly limited audience. At the same time, Huawei continues to face skepticism – both in the US and abroad – for its data security, given the company’s ties (both real and imagined) to the Chinese government. On the flip side to that, there’s no shortage of bragging rights to be able to say you were the first to launch a brand new product category, a factor that could well leave Samsung experiencing some sleepless nights.

Review De La Huawei Band 7


Gran pantalla de visualización

Diseño premium

Sencilla de manejar


Seguimiento del sueño


Experiencia con notificaciones

Nuestro veredicto

Encontramos que la Band 7 es una pulsera de actividad adaptada a los nuevos tiempos, ofreciendo una gran pantalla de visualización en la que poder consultar la información. Su trabajo de seguimiento de la actividad lo hace francamente bien, a falta de mejorar aspectos de su batería ahora que su pantalla es mejor y con mayor brillo.

La pulsera Huawei Band 7 es uno de los últimos productos de la compañía que llega al mercado con las miradas puestas en ofrecer un buen trabajo como monitor de actividad sin dejar de lado el apartado del diseño, un aspecto que cada vez es más valorado por los usuarios que compran tecnología. 

Diseño y calidades

Diseño delgado y atractivo

Variedad de colores en acabados

Pulsera muy ligera

A lo largo de la última década y centrándonos en todo lo que son relojes y pulseras inteligentes, hemos visto surgir una gama de productos muy variada. De todos ellos, el más omnipresente es con mucho la pulsera inteligente conocida como rastreadora de actividad. 

En ocasiones ha llegado a costar menos de 50 € y en líneas generales, ofrece durabilidad y características muy enfocadas en incentivar la actividad física y a llevar hábitos saludables que es lo que se le suele pedir a este tipo de productos. 

Con la Band 7, Huawei ha conseguido producir algo barato pero que no llega a ser una ganga, con un diseño bastante premium que sin ser un producto caro, puede ser interesante para todos aquellos usuarios que se resisten a cargar diariamente con un reloj en su muñeca más grueso y pesado. 

Llega con una mayor variedad de colores en sus acabados, puesto que la puedes encontrar en negro, rosa y verde. Sin duda alguna, es una buena noticia poder tener un poco más de opciones entre las que poder elegir, frente a marcas que solo ofrecen pulseras negras. 

El dispositivo está construido con un plástico con acabados mate que se siente agradable y resistente, con un solo botón en el lado derecho y varios sensores debajo. Su peso de 16 gramos (sin la correa), es liviano, acompañado de un grosor de apenas 9,9 mm. 

Sean Cameron

La correa está fabricada de un compuesto de plástico y caucho que relativamente debería permitir la transpiración. Con respecto a la durabilidad, la Band 7 tiene una clasificación de 5 ATM de resistencia al agua. 

Esto significa que debería resistir incluso el baño en la piscina, aunque tampoco deberías aventurarte a zambullirte con ella constantemente y menos si estás pensando en utilizarla en el mar con el agua salada. 

Más allá de esto, la carcasa se siente sólida y bien construida. Aunque las pulseras inteligentes rara vez se consideran premium (salvo algunos modelos), la Band 7 bien podría pasar desapercibida como un reloj de uso general. 


Panel de 1,47 pulgadas

Tecnología OLED

Opción de pantalla siempre activa

La calidad de las pantallas es la clave del éxito en cualquier pulsera de actividad física. Y es que la pantalla debe ser legible en cualquier condición de iluminación, ser lo suficientemente grande para mostrar la información necesaria, y lo suficientemente nítida para interpretar la información. 

El brillo de la pantalla OLED es un gran extra”

Según estos parámetros, la pantalla utilizada por la Band 7 es de buena calidad, es decir, se oscurece lo suficiente como para usarse por la noche, y es lo bastante brillante como para combatir los rayos del sol de verano y permitir la interpretación de lo mostrado en pantalla. 

El tamaño de la pantalla es grande, de 1,47 pulgadas, como para poder mostrar una gran cantidad de información sin sentirte incómodo, siendo legible en su mayor parte. Como pantalla OLED ofrece buenos negros con un buen contraste. 

Sean Cameron

Otro extra en este punto de precio es la característica de pantalla siempre encendida o Always-on, que agota considerablemente la batería, pero es una mejora considerable si puntualmente quieres hacer uso de esta funcionalidad. 

Permite que la Band 7 se alinee a lo que ofrecen los relojes inteligentes actuales, y es más de lo que el Apple Watch SE puede ofrecer hoy en día, un producto que no debemos olvidar que cuesta 5 veces más que la pulsera de Huawei. 

Software y características

Software propietario de Huawei

Alertas de notificación

Funciones con iOS y Android

Nos agrada ver que la Band 7 no solo ofrece un buen conjunto de funciones de software por el precio que pagas, sino que en su mayoría están bien pensadas y desarrolladas. Y es que la Band 7 ejecuta el sistema operativo propietario de Huawei. 

No es como las opciones de compañías como Samsung o Apple que permiten instalar aplicaciones, sino que tiene un conjunto de opciones que solo se pueden ampliar a través de una actualización de software directa de la propia compañía. 

Afortunadamente, esto no parece que será un problema, ya que el software proporcionado por Huawei es muy completo. Además todo lo asociado al seguimiento del estado físico y de salud, hay una opción de linterna,  alarmas y búsqueda del móvil si se pierde.

No contamos con control de la música y otra serie de extras, puesto que este es un dispositivo muy centrado en garantizar lo esencial, pero cuando consultas la aplicación de Salud de Huawei, compruebas la cantidad de información que te brinda la pulsera Band 7. 

Las notificaciones son ahora factibles en la nueva Band 7″

Las notificaciones están contempladas y gracias al tamaño de la pantalla, son fáciles de leer e interpretar, aunque no es posible interactuar con ellas de forma significativa. La buena noticia es que admite el uso tanto con móviles Android como con iOS. 

Para manejar la Band 7 contamos con la pantalla táctil y el botón lateral. El botón activa el dispositivo y abre varias opciones del menú, mientras que todo lo demás se maneja con ligeros deslizamientos en la pantalla. 

El cambio de esferas de reloj y otros ajustes básicos se manejan a través de la aplicación de Huawei Salud, que en su mayoría tiene un buen conjunto de funciones, aunque algunas de las esferas disponibles se encuentran en modalidad de pago.


Hasta 96 modos de uso deportivo

Bueno para corredores

Ligeros retardos en la interfaz

En líneas generales, la interfaz es ágil y no presenta retrasos al moverte por la interfaz, aunque abrir ciertas funciones como la función de alarma, me provocó un ligero retraso sin llegar a ser un impedimento para su uso. 

La Band 7 permite monitorizar la frecuencia cardíaca, los niveles de SpO2, rastrear el sueño, ofrece GPS asistido para las carreras y tiene 96 opciones de entrenamiento diferentes, cubriendo al menos todos los ejercicios básicos. 

En el seguimiento del sueño, por ejemplo, noté que los resultados eran especialmente buenos cuando en realidad no es que hubiese pasado una de mis mejores noches. Aunque no podemos exigir la máxima precisión, el hecho de incluir la funcionalidad es para tratar de ser preciso.

Estimación de batería de 2 semanas

Duración real de 4 días de uso

Cable de carga sin adaptador

Huawei afirma que la batería de la Band 7 puede llegar a durar hasta dos semanas de uso en condiciones favorables, pero lejos de la realidad, nuestras pruebas nos confirman que la compañía ha sido demasiado optimista con sus estimaciones. 

Con la pantalla siempre activa en modo Always-on y las notificaciones típicas entrantes de llamadas y aplicaciones como WhatsApp, descubrí que podía superar los 3 días de uso antes de que fuera necesario cargar de nuevo su batería, a lo sumo 4 días de uso. 

La autonomía desciende a los 3 o 4 días con el modo de pantalla siempre activa”

Si deseas desactivar algunas de estas funciones, así como la pantalla siempre activa, los datos mejoran algo pero sin llegar a cubrir los 7 días de la semana, haciendo un uso típico de la Band 7 y con la detección de ejercicio fijado en modo automático. 

Cabe recordar que este modelo Band 7 no dispone de sistema GPS. Si deseas adquirir un producto con esta capacidad, deberás optar por el reloj Huawei Watch Fit, el cual sí dispone de este sistema de posicionamiento, además de una pantalla AMOLED de tamaño superior de 1,64 pulgadas.

Precio y disponibilidad

La última pulsera de actividad presentada por Huawei, la Band 7 tiene un precio de venta recomendado actual de 59 €, independientemente de si la adquieres con acabados en negro, rosa o verde. La correa se proporciona con el mismo color que la esfera. 

Actualmente, si echas un vistazo a otras opciones de la marca, verás que la Band 6 ha quedado situada en los 49,90 €, mientras que el reloj Watch Fit cuesta 69,99 € si estás buscando un dispositivo con un tamaño de pantalla ligeramente superior de 1,64 pulgadas.

Hemos buscado en la red y hemos encontrado otra gran oferta que actualmente podrás encontrar en Amazon de la Band 7, comercializada a un precio en oferta de 49,90 € con una rebaja del 17% con respecto al precio habitual.


Hoy en día existen en el mercado infinidad de pulseras de actividad inteligentes, desde pequeños fabricantes chinos con precios sumamente económicos, hasta grandes nombres como Garmin o Fitbit, todas ellas compitiendo por hacerse un hueco en el mercado. 

Contra esta dura competencia, la Band 7 ofrece funcionalidad más que suficiente para el precio que presenta. Sin formar parte del grupo de entrada de gama, su pantalla de visualización mejorada, y el diseño más cuidado, hacen que sea una opción interesante. 

Recordemos que es resistente al agua con soporte de hasta 5 ATM, a lo que hay que añadir un seguimiento bastante sólido del ejercicio, con un software e interfaz que resultan sencillos de manejar, algo que ha catapultado a Huawei a llegar hasta aquí con sus productos de generaciones anteriores. 

Si estás buscando una pulsera inteligente a buen precio, la Band 7 puede ser uno de los productos a considerar frente al resto de rastreadores de actividad inteligentes que puedes encontrar hoy en día en el mercado.
