Huawei P30 zoom camera issue

Just a day before, Huawei rolled July 2022 optimization update for the Huawei P30 series users in China. The company promises to strengthen the system stability and security of the device. But some Huawei P30 users spotted that the 30X zoom camera occurring issues after the recent update.

However, the Huawei P30 owners started complaining after grabbing the recent optimization update that the 30X zoom camera keeps flashing, once aimed at clouds in the sky. Users can’t capture pictures of electronic numbers.

The issue persists while capturing the picture of scales in the normal mode. On the other hand, some of the users suggested that this may cause because by the light flickering. However, it could be a usual glitch and the user might be handling the zoom in daylight exposure.

Well, for Huawei P30 users, the HarmonyOS 3.0 is on its way to launch in the coming week, and expectedly the Huawei P30 series to get this new major version update.

The new operating system will redesign your smartphone and fetch the feature more intuitively. It brings large folders, a more customized option, enhanced crossed connection scenarios, and most importantly it gives brand new security options for the devices.

On the flip side, the July 2022 monthly security patch is also on its way to release for the Huawei P30 users, lets’s see which update will you get initially in between HamonyOS 3.0 and July 2022 security patch.

Huawei P30 Camera feature

Huawei P30 features a triple rear camera system including a 40MP camera and there’s an ultra wide-angle camera along with a periscope zoom on the Pro version and optical zoom in the standard version with a maximum 30X zoom. This camera offers ultra-wide photos that can magnify up to 30X in photos or 10X in the video, not the 50X photo zoom of the Huawei P30 Pro.

With the P30 30X zoom, users were able to see details that were imperceptible at 1x zoom, and while the image quality deteriorated and a slightly shaky hand could easily spoil a shot, we were still impressed with how much detail was retained.

Software issue:

To be mentioned, the majority of the Huawei P30 Pro users found this issue after upgrading to the latest EMUI version, EMUI 12. They stated that the phone was working fine just before we installed the newest update.

So it could be a software issue and a patch or improvements update may fix it. However, we don’t a clue what Huawei is doing in this matter.

I was shocked to see this HarmonyOS 3 bug

huawei app snippets

After installing a patch for the SuperHub feature, my Huawei smartphone with HarmonyOS 3 acted weirdly due to a bug. Because it has lapsed a feature that was there and I like the most in this operating system.

Following the update, the app snippets also known as app swipe-up gestures vanished from the home screen. I was shocked to see that happen.

As you can see in the screenshot, the bar under the app icons disappeared. That’s not it, the feature also stopped working. This was quite strange, as I thought that the feature has now been removed.

However, the solution was easy to knit and it was right before my very eyes. All I have to do is to restart the phone, which restored the feature as well as its user interface appearance.

Bug:

Bugs and glitches are usual to see in any development software or feature that could appear at any time. Since Huawei is continuously adding new features to HarmonyOS, we can expect these minor glitches to shock us, just like this one.

Be noted, the bug appeared after I installed HarmonyOS 3.0.0.163, which brings a number of new features for smart devices.

App Snippets:

Huawei App Snippets allows you to open key features of an app without opening that app. This is quite a useful feature that allows and you won’t find such capability in other smartphone operating systems such as Android and iOS.

You just have to swipe up on an app icon to open a floating window with key features. For example, if you swipe over the browser app icon, the floating window will show a search bar, bookmark bar, and scan button. There’s also a pin button on the top right corner of the window to make it a service widget.

Android 13 beta

A few days ago, Google rolled out Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3.1 for beta testers, and some users reported losing Vo5G on some Google Pixel 7 smartphones. Google is rolling out the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3.1 patch (T1B3.221003.008) for Pixel 4a, 5, 5a, 6, 6 Pro, 6a, 7, and 7 Pro series devices.

Vo5G:

Vo5G is similar to the voice in today’s 4G networks. In 4G LTE, voice calls are implemented as end-to-end Voice over IP (VoIP) connections managed by an IMS core. Voice and video communication services in these networks ride on top of the IP data connection. When the call happens over LTE, it is called Voice over LTE (VoLTE), and when it is over Wi-Fi, it is known as Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi).

Issue:

A Pixel 7 user on Reddit wrote: “Just noticed that it’s gone now, was there in beta 3.0 – anyone else?” Another user in the comment replied with a solution that the Android 13 QPR1 beta 3.1 Vo5G issue may require it to re-enable manually.
