This time, we focused on the streets of peninsular Macau. This is the old, heavily-populated part of Macau where most of the Portuguese-influenced sights like Senado Square is located.
As this part of Macau is heavily-urbanised with many old buildings, it has great character wherever you go – offering great opportunities for street photography.
As usual, we took these photo samples using the Auto mode with no manual adjustments – because this is precisely how the vast majority of smartphone users take their photos!
We want our photo samples to reflect EXACTLY what any HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) user can achieve, if he/she took the same photos in the same spot, at the same time, as we did.
HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Photo Showcase : Macau!
We started the day with noodles and congee at Rua dos Mercadores. Note how congested the city looks – the buildings here are at least seven stories tall.
We resized this photo to ensure it loads quickly, but the detail in the original photo is amazing – you can zoom Into the balcony of the residential units and check out what plants they have in their mini-garden, or what clothes they hung out to dry!
This view of Rua Central emphasises the congestion in this part of Macau that cramps about 600,000 residents in just 8.5 square kilometres.
This photo shows pretty good control of the highlights and shadows. The sun was really bright, beating down mercilessly on the residences on the left, while the rest were in shadows.
The highlights were slightly overblown, but it did a good job of preserving details in the shadows. You can clearly read the small signboards further down the road.
Just off Rua Central is this unique green-coloured Theatro Dom Pedro V. (伯多祿五世劇院) | Dom Pedro V Theatre.
Built to commemorate King Pedro V of Portugal, this neo-classical building now hosts orchestral performances, opera and musical festivals.
Again, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) opts to let the highlights blow out a little, in exchange for preserving details in the shadows. You can clearly make out the man standing next to the pillar, as well as details of the theatre’s ornate windows and doors.
On arrival at the A-Ma Temple, we find it bustling with lion and dragon dance troupes preparing for the Macau International Parade!
It was a really bright day – you can see some glare from the bright sun in the upper right quadrant. Yet, you can zoom in and clearly see the faces of each person in this picture, even though they are in the shadows.
We stepped inside the A-Ma Temple for a short respite from the crowds outside. Built in 1488 to worship the Chinese sea goddess Mazu, it is the oldest temple in Macau!
This is yet another high-contrast shot. The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) did a decent job on the harshly-lit leaves, and kept the skies blue instead of completely white.
But more importantly – you can clearly see the craggy texture of the boulder, as well as the stone stairs, even though they are in the shadows.
The good news though is that your subjects in these wide-angle photos will not look distorted.
Even side roads offer great photographic opportunities, thanks to its combination of unique architecture, weathered look and old world cobble-stone pavements.
This high-contrast shot shows how well the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) controls both the brightly-lit leaves and cobblestones, yet ensuring we can clearly see the vines and moss on the old walls and the design of the louvred windows and doors.
The new world (tour vans) trying to navigate the narrow streets of old, historic Macau…
Yet another very high-contrast shot. While the harshly-lit buildings in the background lost some details, it still preserved enough that we can make out the building facade as well as the vans.
Yet you can clearly make out the crawling vines, and weathered walls of the green building on the left, as well as its window and door.
On the way, we spotted this unique structure – a doorway into the Patio do Cotovelo “inner” street with businesses lining both sides.
The detail is AMAZING! More so when you blow it up to 100% of its 40 MP resolution. You can see the brickwork in great detail, and zoom right to the shop at the end of the lane!
So here we are, at the Monte Fort (Fortaleza do Monte or 大炮台). Built between 1617 and 1626 on top of Mount Hill, it is the historic military centre of Macau.
In this almost uniformly-bright photo, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) demonstrates its ability to capture incredible detail. Blowing up the picture allows us to see the individual leaves of the tree, as well as the details of the stone walls.
The fort covers an area of 8,000 square meters, with 32 of these muzzle-loading (state-of-the-art in those days!) cannons to protect Macau against pirates and eventually, the Dutch!
Again, this was an incredibly bright day, creating harsh shadows. Yet, you can’t tell that from this photo – the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) was able to control the highlights so that cannon, which is in direct sunlight, isn’t blown-out.
And yet, you can also see the colour of the flowers next to it, in the shadows. Also notable is the fact we can make out details of the distant building in the far background.
These days, it has become the favourite past-time of every tourist to use one of these cannons to “shoot” at the Grand Lisboa! LOL!
On this incredibly bright day, it’s noteworthy that we can zoom in and see details of the Grand Lisboa’s facade, which would be washed out in other cameras… and yes, you can make out the clouds in the bright blue sky!
This view offers the best perspective of Macau – the new and the old. The modern (and frankly, really odd-looking) Grand Lisboa in the distance, and the crumbling ruins of the old Monte Fort.
Again, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) impressed us with its ability to preserve details in very bright conditions, even though the Grand Lisboa is miles away!
On the way back from the Monte Fort, we stumbled upon this unique home that is built over a street. I don’t even know what such a feature is called… a bridge house???
In any case, this is a great photo to zoom in, and be amazed at the amount of detail captured in a single photo.
You can examine in detail, the intricate brickwork of the overhead house. You can even zoom past the tunnel, into the shops in the distance!
As you can tell – Macau offers a lot of unique photographic opportunities, even in places you would least expect them – off the beaten path!
And the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) has the cameras that will let you capture incredible detail in every photo. Best of all – its Auto mode works incredibly well, letting you take awesome photos without any special skill or setup!

Globally, there are five HUAWEI P30 colour options – Black, Pearl White, Aurora, Amber Sunrise and Breathing Crystal. However, not all colours are available in all countries.
Here is our look at the three P30 colour options available in Malaysia – Black, Breathing Crystal and Aurora.
HUAWEI P30 Pro Colour Options
HUAWEI initially launched the HUAWEI P30 Pro in five colour options – Black, Pearl White, Aurora, Amber Sunrise and Breathing Crystal. However, not all colours were available in all countries, at least not initially.
Here is our look at the first three P30 Pro colour options available in Malaysia – Black, Aurora and Breathing Crystal.
HUAWEI then introduced the Mystic Blue and Misty Lavender colours, which you can check out in this video of the Collyer Sisters!
Apple AirPods Pro are a popular choice for those who want active noise cancelling earbuds, but there is actually a better alternative – the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3.
Don’t believe us? Find out why the FreeBuds 3 is a superior alternative to the AirPods Pro!
Why FreeBuds 3 Is The Best Alternative To AirPods Pro!
Reason #1 : Low Latency Bluetooth Connectivity
One of the biggest problems affecting Bluetooth earbuds is latency – the delay from when the audio data is transmitted to the earbuds, and when the sound emits from the speakers.
High latency causes the sounds and images of the movie you are watching to go out of sync. It is also a big problem in games, where audio cues can mean the difference between winning and losing!
Most TWS (True Wireless Stereo) earbuds like the AirPods Pro uses a binaural single-channel connection, where the smartphone transmits the audio data to the primary earbud, which then forwards one of the channels to the secondary earbud.
This is simpler to implement, but results in greater latency and higher power consumption by the primary earbud.
A select few TWS earbuds use dual-channel transmissions to both earbuds simultaneously, which reduces latency but results in higher power consumption by both earbuds.
HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 avoids both issues because it uses their proprietary Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology to transmit the left and right channels to each earbud synchronously and separately.
This reduces latency to just 190 ms (lower than the AirPods Pro), ensuring accurate synchronisation, while reducing power consumption!
Reason #2 : Less Chance Of Interference
In public places, interference is a big issue because there is an abundance of both active Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices, and they are all using the same 2.4 GHz spectrum!
This may result in higher audio latencies, or even worse – a disconnection of one or both earbuds from your smartphone!
The HUAWEI Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology reduces the chance of interference from other Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices.
Reason #3 : Powerful Kirin A1 Chipset
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is powered by the Kirin A1 – the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 SoC, which supports Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1 as well.
With an industry-leading 365 MHz audio processor, it is powerful enough to simultaneously perform real-time noise cancellation for both earbuds, as well as real-time 3A call noise cancellation, with automatic echo cancellation (AEC), automatic gain control (AGC) and adaptive noise reduction (ANR) for the microphones!
Reason #4 : More Comfortable Fit
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is the world’s first active noise cancelling Bluetooth earbuds with an open fit design. Because they won’t close up your ear canals, they are more comfortable to wear for long hours of use.
Its Dolphin Bionic Design is not just aesthetically-pleasing, it’s designed to ensure a more secure yet comfortable fit so you can run and jog without worry.
Reason #5 : Personalised Noise Cancellation
The open design is more complicated to handle because it lets more ambient noise leak in. To correct for that, HUAWEI generated 9 sets of noise reduction profiles, based on extensive research of real human ear canals of different ages, genders, ear sizes, etc.
This lets you optimise its active noise cancellation performance with a simple click in the HUAWEI AI Life app (available in Google Play Store and HUAWEI AppGallery). This gives it a leg up over its competitors that are based on standard ear models.
Reason #6 : Noise Reduction For Voice
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 reduce noise through two mechanisms. Its microphones are shielded by a wind noise reduction duct, so you can speak clearly even if you are running or cycling.
Whenever you speak, the FreeBuds 3 uses bone vibrations to distinguish your voice from background noise, ensuring you are clearly heard even in noisy environments.
Reason #7 : Super Fast Pairing!
Thanks to its support for Bluetooth 5.1, it connects much quicker to your smartphone than Bluetooth 5.0 earbuds like the Apple AirPods Pro.
It is also designed to automatically turn on and pair with your smartphone, whenever you open its charging case. It’s ready to use by the time you place it in your ears!
Finally, The FreeBuds 3 Is MUCH CHEAPER Than AirPods Pro!
The eight and final reason – the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is MUCH CHEAPER than the AirPods Pro!
With a retail price of RM 679 / ~US$163 / £139.99 / ~A$239.99 / S$219, you will get a better pair of wireless earphones with lower latency and better active noise cancellation for both voice and audio… at a steep discount!
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is available in two colour options – Carbon Black and Ceramic White, and you can purchase it directly from HUAWEI Malaysia here! For more information, see HUAWEI’s FB post!
Here are some online purchase links, with prices accurate as of 1 December 2019 :
The modern world is noisy, and that’s why so many people are turning to ANC earbuds like the new HUAWEI FreeBuds 3.
In this article, we will take a look at how HUAWEI Freebuds 3 delivers superior ANC for both voice and audio, giving it a leg-up over the competitors!
Why Active Noise Cancellation?
For decades, we have been relying on over-ear headphones to reduce external noise from disrupting our enjoyment of music and movies. The covering of our ears with padded ear cups is what’s called passive noise cancellation or reduction.
Some of us even resort to in-ear earphones, where the ear buds are inserted directly into the ear canals. Again, they serve to passively block noise from the outside.
Both of these passive noise cancelling solutions help, but they only offer minimal noise reduction. And even worse – they are uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) delivers far better noise cancellation, and it does this without using thick padding or requiring you to insert anything into your ear canals.
That’s why everyone wants active noise cancelling earphones – once you tried one, you will never go back!
HUAWEI FreeBuds 3
HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) offers active noise cancellation in an open fit in-ear design, which offers maximum comfort; with a Dolphin Bionic Design to ensure a better fit.
HUAWEI Kirin A1
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is powered by the Kirin A1 – the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 SoC. This allows it deliver a stable and fast Bluetooth connection for accurate audio and video synchronisation.
The HUAWEI Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology transmits audio data to each ear bud synchronously and separately, to reduce latency and ensure accurate synchronisation.
Active Noise Cancellation
The Kirin A1 has a fast 356 MHz audio processor, which allows the FreeBuds 3 to capture and cancel background noise in real-time. This allows you to enjoy your music, or calls, even in noisy environments.
Tests have shown that ambient noise is reduced by half, even sudden loud noises like train brakes and car honks.
HUAWEI also allows you to adjust 9 different parameters to fine-tune its noise cancellation performance for more challenging environments.
Bone Conduction Sensor + Aerodynamic Mic Duct
The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) does not just reduce noise to your ears, it also reduces noise when you speak!
Its microphones have an aerodynamic duct design to reduce wind noise, and it uses bone conduction voice sensors to pick up your voice vibrations.
When the ambient noise levels are too high, it uses your bone conduction vibrations to enhance the quality of your calls, making sure that your voice is clearly heard above hubbub around you!
14 mm Driver + Bass Tube
In addition to a 14 mm dynamic driver, each ear bud has a bass tube tucked right behind, delivering a louder and punchier bass.
Unlike most earphones that use SBC or aptX, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 uses AAC coding – the only Bluetooth audio codec that makes use of psychoacoustic modelling to compress the data.
AAC coding delivers significantly better audio quality with lower latency and power consumption. However, it is a processing-intensive codec.
Hence, HUAWEI advises that you pair the FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) with HUAWEI smartphones, because they are designed to encode audio using the AAC codec, instead of the more common SBC or aptX codecs.
Long Battery Life
Thanks to the highly-efficient Kirin A1 chip, the FreeBuds 3 can last 4 hours of non-stop music playbackwith active noise cancellation turned on.
Its carry case doubles as a portable charger, allowing you to recharge the FreeBuds 3 up to four times!
It even supports wireless charging, so you can use any smartphone that supports Qi wireless charging to recharge the FreeBuds 3 and its charging case!
Super Fast Pairing!
HUAWEI designed the FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) for easy and fast pairing. Even pairing them for the first time to a HUAWEI smartphone is as simple as tapping on the pop-up window to confirm the pairing!
Thereafter, your FreeBuds 3 will automatically turn on and pair with your HUAWEI smartphone when you open its charging case.
Watch how fast it turns on and connects to the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro! Hint – it’s less than a second!
At the Sunway Velocity Mall roadshow, every HUAWEI Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro comes with a FREE HUAWEI SuperCharge Wireless Car Charger and HUAWEI Care (extended 1 year warranty + 1 month screen crack warranty)

HUAWEI Malaysia also shared with us their Christmas Promo, where every purchase of select HUAWEI products will receive FREE Christmas-themed freebies.
Now, the HUAWEI Phone Clone method is not foolproof.
It allows you to “bypass” the Trump ban by essentially porting over apps that do NOT rely on Google Mobile Services (GMS) to your Mate 30 / Mate 30 Pro smartphone.
But if the app requires GMS (like Gmail or YouTube), you will need to use an alternative app or use the web browser instead. For example :
switch from the Gmail app to the HUAWEI Mail app
use a web browser to view YouTube videos, instead of the YouTube app
This Phone Clone method is also a one-time deal. It lets you migrate the apps (and your data) over from an existing Android smartphone.
But if you ever need to reinstall the app, you will need to do it through the Aptoide App Store, or some other third-party App Store… because Google Play Store is not available.
Similarly, you will need to use the Aptoide app to update your apps, but this works the same way as Google Play Store.
The HUAWEI Phone Clone method is a good option for those with an existing smartphone to migrate most of their apps to the Mate 30 / Mate 30 Pro.
But it doesn’t solve the problem of not being able to access Google Play Store, or apps that use GMS. The good news though is that Trump may soon come to a trade agreement with China, and we could see Google services restored to the Mate 30 / Mate 30 Pro.
The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro has two spectacular video recording features – the ability to capture ultra-slow motion video at 7680 fps, and ultra-low light video at up to ISO 51200.
Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about both features, and our video showcase!
The HUAWEI 7680 FPS + ISO 25600 Video Showcase!
HUAWEI shared with us two short videos to showcase the Mate 30 Pro‘s ability to deliver 7680 fps ultra-slow motion video, as well as ultra-low light video recording at ISO 25600.
Together with two additional videos they released earlier, we created this video showcase of their 7680 fps and ISO 25600 video recording samples.
How The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Delivers 7680 FPS Video!
It would be impossible for a human being to react fast enough to capture the “right moment”, so when you start recording, its NPU analyses a second of video to determine the best time start recording at 7680 fps.
This process of analysing the video data and triggering at the right moment is a very strenuous process, using an AI algorithm and about 2 GB of RAM.
The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro then captures 945 frames in 120 milliseconds. That approximately 3.5 GB worth of data is then expanded into 32 seconds of 30 fps ultra-slow motion video.
As you can tell, recording video at 7680 fps (frames per second) takes A LOT of processing power.
Even with its powerful Kirin 990 processor, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro can only do it at the 720p resolution, and only for a fleeting 0.12 seconds.
So if you are wondering when will you be able to record 7680 fps video at 1080p or 4K resolution, or for longer than 0.12 seconds… we did some calculations, and a future smartphone must be capable of processing all this data in an instant :
720p @ 0.24 seconds : 7.0 GB of data
1080p @ 0.12 seconds : 7.8 GB of data
1080p @ 0.24 seconds : 15.6 GB of data
4K @ 0.12 seconds : 31.4 GB of data

The HUAWEI Mate 30 High ISO Capability
In low light conditions, it is possible to increase the camera’s ISO value – basically boosting the signal from its image sensor.
While this effectively increases the sensitivity of the image sensor to light hitting its photodiodes, it can increase noise. Therefore, the ability to increase ISO levels without introducing significant noise is highly desirable.
The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro boasts the ability to increase ISO levels up to ISO 51200, which is incredibly high. What this means is you have greater capability to take photos and record videos in low-light conditions.
